Or will Jaeha finally see Eunho for the man he’s now become?
I would've lost my mind if I had to read this chapter by chapter as it was coming out. Thankfully I didn't have to and instead spent all day reading this. I'll start by saying I liked this manhwa, dare I say kinda love it actually. The writing as far as the dialogue and the character's thoughts was very well done and one of the stronger parts of this story. Eunho is a very sympathetic character and I felt his emotions regarding his deep love for Jaeha. He's cute, perceptive and loyal to a fault. Jaeha on the other hand is complicated, guarded and beautiful. He had a bitchiness to him that thankfully he acknowledged and felt guilty about and to that, I say "thank god". There's little worse than a selfish person that lacks self-awareness. I think one of the aspects of Jaeha as a character that made me like him too was the fact that I relate to him. Making mistakes and having the guilt eat you alive is a very human experience. Also, Hanjun is my favourite character and I'm upset that we didn't at least get a side story about him. Their relationship could be divided into 3 acts and they took the long road getting to the end but I appreciate that it wasn't easy. Honestly, if they had just gotten together at the start when it looked like it was happily ever after, Jaeha wouldn't have truly understood Eunho and the pain he put him through. If you're like me and you love childhood friends, younger semes, extreme loyalty, beautiful ukes, many chapters and ANGST, then you should check this one out. Overall pretty good but not for everyone.
I get that failed past relationships will make you miserable and NOT want to date again but MAN Jaeha's indecisiveness really gets on my nerves... after getting the courage to tell his newfound feelings to lover boy Eunho (who has been crushing him for years) he just simply destroyed it after spending some quality time BECAUSE he wants Eunho to have a secure future, and the CAUSE of it?? Being shaken by Eunho's family's words for crying out loud. Their journey felt tedious ngl since it's a slice of life drama without any action/fantasy elements it's bound to be a dragged out slow burn with the characters searching for their true real feelings in the gutter. This manhwa is no exception, still they could've handled it better... the two main frustrates the hell outta me imo especially Jaeha (Eunho's just a lovesick puppy🤷♀️). The likeable ones are Sookyung and Hanjun (dun mind the spelling). To sum up the whole thing theirs the kind of issues that can be solved with regular couples therapy sessions. FACTS. And breaking up with someone by the beach seems to be the trend in these romance manhwas (i dunno if it happens in reality too or just a fictional thing)... what a glorious way to end things.
