There are a few unusual things about Cafe Goyo. Number one, their coffee sucks. Number two, their customers never order off the menu. And number three, Yohan, the cafe manager, is deaf. So when Soohwa joins as a part-timer, though he is not expected to learn how to make good coffee, he is asked to expand his sign language vocabulary beyond the words, “higher,” “pay,” and “please.” But when Yohan offers to give him private lessons, Soohwa is reluctant. Not because he doesn’t want to study, but because he has a “hard” time around Yohan. Like, literally. He gets hard. Whenever he hears Yohan’s deep, sexy voice.
This story is adorable (albeit explicit) and very well put together. But while I want to totally love this comic for all its good, I have a few qualms with it. SPOILER/not much of a spoiler: Good - the two engage in safe sex by ensuring use of a condom. Soohwa also has one instance of desparately wanting sex but knowing he can't do anything with a sleeping partner, so he doesn't (bare minimum but still a positive). MORE SPOILER-Y: Bad - our beloved Boss character engages in a lot of... questionable sexual activity with Soohwa where the line of consent is sometimes heavily blurred and outright violated at points (although this has no negative impact on their relationship). For example, the most atrocious violation of consent that comes to mind is when Soohwa comes home drunk one evening on accident, and Yohan is so angry with him about it that he immediately brings the incredibly-disoriented and clearly wasted Soohwa to bed and has aggressive sex to "punish him" until he wakes up/sobers up. Another instance is when the two had sex when Yohan was super tired; after him getting off he fell asleep on top of Soohwa who remained aroused and unsatisfied but was unable to move bc of the sleeping man on top of him and eventually fell asleep himself. No issues there - until Soohwa wakes up later on to being touched sexually and Yohan proceeds with blowing him even though before they slept he said he wouldn't. EXITING SPOILER TERRITORY: There are other instances of this, though I believe these two may be the worst, throughout the story that have made it incredibly difficult for me to rate this comic highly despite everything else being fantastic. A lot of "no"s and "stop"s were never taken seriously and they should have been. Given the frequency of sexual activity happening here, I think it's beyond important for consent to be at the forefront, but in many instances here consent was both not explicitly given and/or Soohwa was not able to properly consent.
I really like the story and I kind of understand how Soohwan feels (I had a crush on this Japanese-American business man that use to go to the place i worked at and I LOVE his voice it use to give me the hot chills) I really enjoyed reading but man I was left with the excitement of the sex scene. Since I don't see pass ch 23 translated in the plataform i use (Mangago.me) I think they move fast but steady with the relationship. Is super cute! Read it you guys it will not disappoint.
I just finished reading this manhwa and I am so sad. When I started it I knew that eventually it would have to end but I never expected it to be so soon. I would totaly recomened sign for and people who like yaoi. It is funny and also sweet. I think that even though it has many chapters it is still worth it to read. Hopefully they are side stories in the future or the author will make another comic.
