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?

!MBY SPOILERS!i rlly liked this story, and i rlly like Yoseob, ye i said it. I understand him, i had similiar childhood like him. Ending rlly got me, i was crying. Yoseob was just a victim, so i felt really bad for him. (for his brother too, he was trying his best until the end.) You rlly should try to read this story, it's amazing.So what does this story have? Why did I rated it so high? Le'ts answer your questions!! StoryThe story is about two brothers, one is mentally broken, or atleast i would call it like that, because of his past where he lived with his parents. The second one took advantage of it and instadeat of saying: You can't do that. It's not okay to kill somthing. You can't hurt people. He was telling him the exact opposing by his actions and cuz of that the younger one tough it was okay to hurt things. This is one of the things I loved about this, cuz there is not many stories like that, because at first I tough the younger one was just some psycho but then you relieze it was the fault of his parents and his older brother, like wooooo. CharactersIn this story I liked all of the main characters, it's easy to like them and understand their thinking like: why he/she did that. And if we dont count some people in school and those parents of the younger brother, characters were good and likable here too. ArtI liked the art style here, it fitted the story, it was kinda cute for a story like that, but that's what I liked about it. If it was with different art style, it wouldn't be 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.
