Haven't finished it (chapter 38), but it needs some help.

Main criticisms:

Not the best character development or presence (both main characters avoid communicating actual thoughts and desires in favor of hints and violating each other). Each character stalls in terms of growth due to communication issues, and denial or failure to communicate feelings or intentions, as well as a lack of action or plot. The main characters tend to make a lot of assumptions that fail them in their ability to be more fulfilled people, but at least it doesn't get in the way of each of them working, so, yay? Even if their sexual activities and secrets should set up a plot, you get unfulfilled side characters and main characters with their own emotional complexes that are not explored.

Which leads to plot issues: there is not a plot. It is a slice of life, and ideally, that has some sort of continuity. This series has continuity, but the mixture of stilted/jagged pacing and ill-defined events serving as development without exploration or significant to the characters... it has me wanting more of an intention behind the characters or the events, a focus or development from the author... It has the makings of a pornographic romantic comedy, but it's confusing porn with romance and traded comedy for blushing aesthetics.

Which I guess is okay, if you wanted something to fap to and accidentally found what seemed like a webcomic. You won't stumble over the missing storyline.

Oh, and before I forget!

There is rape, as defined as nonconsensual sex or sexual activity, and inconsistent trigger warnings of chapters containing it.

Redeeming qualities:

The art is pretty. The sex is fappable.

If you wanted to see mainly sex, and probably forego any details of a plot, characters, or purpose, this is for you.

Everyone else that expected it to still be a comic? You should stick to Alfie.

Some of the background items (buildings, coffee mugs, etc.) look like they are taken from stock photos or something, at times 3D. It's a pet peeve of mine when they mix 2D art with 3D art, and consequently when it's obvious that the artist cut corners. That being said, Seyoung is absolutely adorable and the nudity is drawn well. And this manga is basically hentai, soooo I'm not sure how much the buildings or coffee mugs really matter.

The main fetish in this manga is uncontainable horniness and public masturbation/sex. And dripping vaginal juices. Up until chapter 28, I would rate it as maybe an 8/10. After that, it becomes less interesting because there's less tension. Probably to make up for that, they start to include include some experimentation with degradation, anal play, and urination. And to keep the story going, they have to make the characters basically become complete dullards unable to recognize when other people are interested in them.

Are we just going to pretend that chapter 51 didn't happen? Did Jinwoo ever tell Seyoung about that incident? Or is he being a moldstain about it?
