I really like the half of the story, but it disappointed me in the end. I expected Hasoo to be able to overcome the toxic relationship that he had and to move on with Taku, but it didn't happen, even if he haven't ended with Taku, I didn't want him with the other character, it's just so toxic and painful for everyone that it really disappointed me.

It's a good story, but the end it's just... I can't stand it, it made angry that he hadn't had the will to change.

This story is stupid it basically is a boy who gets mad at his "lover" tries to date someone else and uses the new lover to fix his relationship with his ex and then leaves that person. This whole storywas toxic.

Let me start off by saying I was enjoying the story BUT I HATED THE ENDING. This entire story was cliche, I do admit the writing was fairly good but overall the entire plot was just filled with toxicity and convience. The author gave every possible obstacle for the the End game couple. They were basically "Love can triumph over anything" I mean the Seme was an actor (and dating in Korea is hard when you're a celebrity, especially if you're part of the LGBTQ community) they were Stepbrothers (we all know how taboo that is). Both the Uke and the seme were brought together through toxic bonding, unfortunately people think

toxic bonds = soulmates

The semes character is always justified because of his past. Which I hated.

The 2nd Lead was just used as a catalyst for the Seme and the Uke, which was even more frustrating.

IVE NEVER HATED A CHARACTER MORE THEN I HATE THE SEME. I find him annoying and ugly. The Seme was honestly like 80% of every BL character I read. There was nothing special about him. I still don't understand why he was popular amongst the fans.

2nd lead was so much more interesting. I was okay with the Uke not ending up with him. 

I wanted the uke to end up alone or with someone completely different.

I wish I could forget I read this story. I've never been so upset with myself over a BL and now because I've read this it's hard for me to enjoy other BLs because now I can see the toxicity in all of them.

the best yaoi manga i read so far.... 

HIGHLY RECOMENDED  

HEASOO'S caracter is the best he is in total confution for both loves... i dont know if the thing between joowon and heasoo is love i think that he got used to him i wouldnt like him ending with joowon though joowon would be misreable in the end ... i gess heasoo deserevs to be happy yet the people that made his life misreable were his mother to begin with from the first time she saw them tougether she was against them yet she told him its okay to be gay yet not with joowon and there began the problems....

i dont know if many people thought the sam way i did i gess i was totally captivated with heasoo's character because i think it is the same as me and i am waiting for the ending to see how heasoo will be choosing to love tako or joowon the one who love him the most or the one who he loves the most yet he brings him heartache...

the art is great i love how each and every character looks they are sexy as hell...

the story is perfect i was looking for simlar story yet didint find...

the psycological theme is great...

i hop you would apload lots of great chapters 

i encourage you dear writer you are really reallly talented fighting :)

Spoiler Free Review ~

This is in my opinion, one of the best yaoi manga / manhwa out there. The writing is actually good and it doesn't feel like it was slapped together last second. The only thing I would look out for is that it's super frustrating and depressing. The pace gets slower overtime and we're expected to understand the characters. The dark, sophisticated, and mature theme makes this feel a lot more realistic and interesting. Another thing, it's actually a slight mystery who the protagonist is going to end up with. I absolutely hate it when manga or anime give it away from the start.

In my opinion, all of the characters are toxic as hell and are the farthest things from perfect, but that's what makes them feel like actual characters. They all have their own faults, interests, preferences, etc. All their actions have a reason and aren't just through a sudden whim (although some of them are questionable at first). Their interactions with one another and inner thoughts aren't dumb, cliche, or melodramatic. (Bonus : they're also all hot lmao)

The art is a m a z i n g, and so are the R rated scenes lmao. I have no complaints, it has it's own sense of individuality and accompanies the theme and concept well.
