Gay shut-in Junwoo is a shy, awkward virgin who has not left his house in five years. Although he has a hardcore crush on his handsome neighbor, Hanbit, he's never found the courage to do anything other than secretly masturbate while thinking of him. But when Hanbot's friend, Wooyeon, catches Junwoo in an embarrassing position, Junwoo's life is turned upside down. Wooyeon soon winds up living with him, and Junwoo's days of hiding alone in the shadows come to an abrupt end.
Wow, I cannot say enough good things about this webcomic. At first, I thought the title made it seem a little superficial and it was going to be a bit formulaic... wow, was I wrong! This webtoon has filled me with so many emotions. First of all, the illustrations are so beautiful. But more than that, this series covers some pretty heavy topics. As someone who lost her mom at a young age, I felt myself relating to so many of the emotions and personal conflict these characters work through. All the while, you have a passionate love story involved. Full warning, this story does cover some pretty aggressive mental health issues, but it is very much worth the read. Highly recommend!!
I gotta say folks, this is quite a bit of an emotional saucy Yaoi I've ever read. You would feel for the character Junwoo who is locking himself up because he had quite a troubling past and the fact he was harming himself, really breaks your heart. However Wooyeon was honestly the perfect person for him who was so patient with him that it melts your heart how much he cared about Junwoo. You have to read this 47 chapter manhwa folks, it is very very good!
The storytelling is absolutely beautiful with this one. There's a lot to be said about the tragedy of the hikikomori and I think this manhwa covers a lot of it. I don't usually get really attached to stories or characters, but this one made me tear up quite a bit. I know someone who would be considered a hikikomori, so reading this story constantly reminded me of that person and even made me more sympathetic as someone who has thankfully never dealt with depression. I think what made the story so impactful was the fact that the author herself experienced a period of stagnation like Junwoo. In fact, I've felt burnt out and unmotivated before like the author. All I can say is that anyone can appreciate what this work is trying to convey.
