Seconds after winning his case, Sehyuk is immediately called to investigate another murder - this time, with a suspect who claims to be his biggest fan. Ideun, the suspect in question who holds the key to the investigation, requests a "private" sitting with Sehyuk, in all essence of the word. As the mystery unveils, unpleasant truths and painful memories rise to the surface once again, plunging Sehyuk deeper into madness.
Includes side story chapters.
FIRST OFF: For some reason, AP doesn't specify the content warnings for this manhwa. And boy, this manhwa DOES need some content warnings: Violence (not explicit/gory but it's everywhere in the story), dubious consent, incest, sexual abuse (rape). SECOND: FAST-PACED LAYERED & UNPREDICTABLE PLOT. I wasn't sure was I expecting, other than gorgeous art -- perhaps a yet another dubcon smut manhwa with the crime backstory only as a plot device? Well, it does have the explicit sex scenes, it goes much, much beyond that. I thought I had got the tropes down, at least -- an obsessive lovesick stalker, etc. But absolutely nothing is what it seemed like. "Nothing is what it seems" -- this manhwa in a nutshell, whose plot/mystery aspects very much dominates the story without engulfing the BL aspects. The only one I trusted throughout much of this story was the male lead, Gu Sehyuk. With this manhwa I felt like there was absolutely nobody else I could trust, because nothing was adding up, and I'm guessing that's what the author very much intentioned. There were so many plot twists, but they didn't feel cheap at all because in hindsight there was plenty of foreshadowing -- done well. I also like how there was no "idiot ball" -- incompetence/idiocy for the sake of plot -- here. Challenges arise despite of the characters' competence and thoughtfulness, not because someone suddenly acted idiotic for no reason. I wanted to give 10/10 for the story, but since it's still ongoing I'll hold it to 9/10 for now. THIRD: The art style is the best. Conclusion: As of this review, I'm still at Chapter 44. I'm looking forward to see where this manhwa is really going, and I'd recommend it to folks who love incredibly plotty dark stories (see the content warnings above) and wouldn't mind some BL developments alongside the plot.
The storybis good very interesting. The art is like candy for the eyes and characters are not over the top. Would recommend.
