An Uncomfortable Truth

Yoseob, normally very quiet and composed, is in the police station convicted of stabbing 8 civilians with a knife. Everyone's wondering whether he actually committed the crime. Does he, a mere high-schooler, really have any reason to have done such a horrifying act? Does his obsessive love for his older brother, Jaeha, have something to do with it?

Don't waste your time. The synopsis is super misleading. It's not even really about the two mentioned. I read the whole thing thinking it was really just a slice of life comic about a girl name Yura and a guy named Taeoh who deal with their own psychological problems and every 12 chapters or so it's like oh yea btw there's a creepy kid causing some problems. The conversations were long and repetitive, the tone was waaaaay off (I did not once feel tense because of all the attempts at humour, and not even dark humour. Just plain old slice of life humour. Super weird). The entire thing isn't even present day, and we don't get a look at it again after a tiny bit is shown in the first chapter. Not until 70 chapters or so does it even touch on present day. The whole time I felt like, "why do I care about this girl? Why do I care about this boy? Are they even the main characters? What's going on?" It makes a ton of sense when you read the authors note at the end. It had started out as a short BL but her editor made her change it to a thriller even though she had no interest in it. She makes this sound like a good thing but the comic suffered because of it in my opinion.  Saying all of that, the art style was really nice. Even though it was cute I think it did suit the thriller theme just fine (if it had ever really been one that is). If the author writes a shorter comic with an intentionally lighter theme I think she would do really well and I would totally give it a try. But don't bother with this one. Or, if you do read it, read the author's note first or just consider that this story isn't really about Yeosob at all. He's just the background plot. It might be more enjoyable if you know that going in.
