A list of trigger warnings can be found in this manhwa, such as rape or non-consensual sex, confinement, manipulation, trauma, and violence. I wouldn't recommend reading this manhwa if any of the aforementioned factors affect your mental health. The more I read, the more my mind was messed up, but I can't even fathom how fucked up this manhwa is. I can't really stand how Heewon manipulates and abuses Mooyoung, along with his twisted and sickening love for him. It gave me shivers to learn that he got it from his mother. Both he and his mother are frightening and have a totally fucked up mindset and personality. It made me sick to think of what she did to her husband to make him love her. I pity Mooyoung, who has had to go through this nightmare. It saddens me deeply that he actually fell in love with this monster. Not only does Mooyoung suffer, but he is also deceived by the person he thought he could trust the most.
tldr: I cannot deny that this is a masterpiece of psychological horror. Hands down one the most fucked up Yaois I've ever read. This should honestly be tagged as psychological horror. Part of my sense horror probably stems from being a r*pe and sexual trauma survivor, so I can truly empathize with the victim and their state of mind. I would have liked to see more in the ending. Perhaps a longer term implication or time lapse. Part of the horror is imagining where it goes from there, but I think that's by the author's design. Babsot knew exactly what they were doing to us. The art is outstanding despite all other potential drawbacks. Sometimes I'd just scroll through a whole chapter only looking at the characters before going back and reading for the plot.
Lima Syndrome suffers from a directionless plot and an abrupt ending, like it wanted to go somewhere interesting but fell flat of the intended plan. The idea is amazing, and the story start is wonderful, but it needed a lot more fleshing out. The side stories were better than the story itself and made it shine more, but the overall main plot ends up being forgettable, unfortunately.
