In both Korean webtoons, we have a dark-haired rich kid (the physical body of the protagonist in At the End of the Road) with "amnesia" who gets thrown into a situation where he has to figure out the motives of those around him. One of these ways is by viewing videos of his younger "self" to piece together the tragedies of the past.

Our protagonists in both are tough and discerning, not putting up with BS and not giving his trust readily to the shady blond who seems obsessed with him. The other male lead is a beautiful-in-a-dangerous-way tall blond with ties to the protagonist's past. The main character distrusts him but the blond guy is very attached, having lost him before, and welcomes every scrap of attention.

Flashbacks reveal why he is so completely devoted to the main character through their shared childhood/adolescence. The situation currently is a reversal of dominance from their childhood days. For important reasons, the main character does not remember or deliberately avoids bringing up the past that they had in common, choosing instead to treat the blond as a stranger that was introduced relatively recently.  

I would whole-heartedly recommend fans of either series to read the other. Both have a dark atmosphere, a mystery of memories and identities and a similar level of non-explicit romantic content alongisde the gripping plot.

While Moritat seems more confusing structure wise, they both have somewhat similar main characters. And the fact that everything the other male lead is doing for them is out of love, of course.

Both Korean webtoons are about a dark-haired main character who was once the tough guy in the neighbourhood and had previously saved the weaker blond guy in their childhood past. Unfortunately, they lost contact after being separated. Now that the protagonist is older, he has mostly forgotten their shared past and is weaker (physically in At the End of the Road, emotionally in A Guy Like You).  Meanwhile, the blond guy had changed to be more powerful and cynical so he could fend for himself without his childhood saviour, also his first love. When they meet again, the tsundere protagonist cannot or pretends not to recognize the blond guy, infuriating him. A push-pull relationship ensues.

The plot revolves around characters that have a connection based on childhood friendships.  The characters are of different social statuses, which have become largely reversed since their younger days.  A large part of the conflicts of both stories is the social stigma around homosexuality which impacts the protagonists.

both have a setting where the two mcs face a lot of difficulties but overcome them together and end up together at last. also the seme in both the manhaws look kinda similar and have similar characteristics

oroborochi oroborochi says...

Both stories feauture a possessive 'seme' lusting for a supposedly strong 'uke'. Both feauture questionable side couples, though Out of Control's resolution is much more complete than At the End of the Road. If you were at any point uncomfortable by OC's male lead, don't read AER, he's much worse. 

The Last Zombie

The Last Zombie

Dajeong has lived with Dr. Lee Sehyeon for as long as he can remember, but his memories are muddled and don't go back very far. All he knows for certain is that the doctor must give him an injection every day, his diet can only consist of raw meat, and he is forbidden from venturing outdoors. He is, in fact, the last surviving zombie from an outbreak that humanity managed to contain a decade ago, and was the product of an experiment that Dr. Lee managed to rescue him from before he could be disposed of. The doctor knows that he can't keep Dajeong hidden forever, just as he knows that Dajeong's questions about why he is "sick" will one day need to be answered. He slowly begins introducing Dajeong to the outside world, but things become more complicated when his undead patient begins to fall in love with him.

It kinda has both ways of experimentation, and it is full-color. Although, by far they are most together because the BL story is just so good.
