Overview

by Sooyeon Won
In an effort to be closer to his beloved, Dai decides to transfer to Jaehee's school, where he meets Jaehee's friend Naru, a free spirit who despises the violent gang leader with a passion. In such close proximity, Dai and Jaehee find themselves drawn to each other more than ever and in a fit of frustration, Jaehee reveals the whirlwind of anxiety Dai has brought into his life, since he is never certain when Dai's next betrayal would come. Touched and chastened, Dai professes his love and promises never to betray Jaehee again. The two become more and more honest of the feelings they have for each other, even as Jaehee accidentally learns that Dai's father is no other than a famous politician. Meanwhile, Eunhyung can't seem to escape her painful memories and Yooneun seeks out Jaehee once again, in the belief that only he can make her sister better, even though her own feelings for him are becoming stronger. Naru's heart finds its way to Yooneun, but the fate of their love becomes more callous when he discovers that Jaehee and Yooneun are not strangers.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this Korean manhwa in the shonen-ai (boys' love) genre, high schooler Jaehee Yoo tries to save a girl named Yooneun from a gang, and afterward he feels a powerful attraction to the gang's leader, a rebellious, self-mutilating pretty boy named Dai. Yooneun, who develops a crush on Jaehee without knowing his identity, turns out to be the older sister of Jaehee's girlfriend, Eunhyung. When, after Dai and his gang brutally beat up Jaehee, Dai kisses Jaehee and declares his affection, Jaehee feels powerless to resist. The art, more realistic than most shojo work, is reasonably good. Though the abusive relationship is distasteful, the story is not uncompelling-but overmelodramatic narration and difficult passages dilute its impact. This is one of Netcomics's inaugural releases, and the mediocre translation, with spelling and grammar errors here and in some of their other books, does not bode well for its future in the American market. Further, the 13+ rating here is unreliable: at any of the major manga companies, the bloody beatings that Dai's gang hand out (including one to Eunhyung), the harsh language they use, and the homosexual theme would get the book a 16+ or comparable rating at least. Best avoided. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
