The last thing Sooha wants in her life is a man. She’s sick of her mother calling about boyfriend problems, of friends trying to set her up on dates, of girls waiting for their Prince Charming. But when a broke and homeless man offers to housekeep in exchange for temporary housing, Sooha finds herself saying yes to a man for the first time in her life. After all, who wouldn’t want to come home to warm homemade dinners, clean sheets, and freshly ironed clothes?
Even though I appreciated the fact that Sooha is different from any heroine character out there with her straightforward "no BS" attitude, I honestly found the story was just boring. I think the main reason is the fact the whole story I felt, keeps focusing on the other characters that were pretty pointless and annoying (especially the boss and the shopkeeper fella). It would've been better if the whole thing just focuses on Sooha and Taesoo only. That way I could've given this Manhwa a higher score....
I have quite mixed feelings about this manhwa... I really enjoyed the first half. The premise was enjoyable, the characters were interesting, and the plot was engaging. I really thought it was going to be one of my favourite manhwas. The romance was sweet and the main leads' interactions were so much fun to read. But then the second part hit... I just felt that the plot development suddenly screeched to a halt, and it suddenly turned into this problematic relationship mess. The two characters just spent most of it arguing and being upset at each other. The characters made poor choices, and choices that were unlike them. The whole second half of the story could've been solved with some proper communication. I understand that it's supposed to represent real life, and real relationship problems, but there ended up being too much strife, that by the end, I was too emotionally exhausted to even care. I just couldn't relate to the characters, or to their decisions. I suppose the ending was sweet, but there had just been too many poor decisions So overall, a very promising story turned out to be quite mediocre.
This review contains spoilers!! I really liked the first half of this manhwa. The characters all had their own personalities and backstory, the main couple had great interactions and even the second couple had an interesting dinamic between them. The art is really pretty too, despite lacking some background sometimes. But when we got to the second half of the story, instead of exploring the problems each character had in a realistic way, we got a series of misunderstandings and lack of communication recycled over and over.. Spoilers now! I'll start with the second couple. We were presented with the past between soojung and taesoo, which made us dislike Soojung. But with Mr. Hwang, it kinda only starts going wrong when she lies about being moon crystal the second time. And from then on, it's just a series of bad decisions on Soojung's part which only contribute to fuel the reader's dislike towards her. She never talks things out with Hwang, not about her past, not about her fear when she lies to him the first time (which would have been totally forgivable at first). It's like she's a character created without the intention of ever having a happy ending. It would have been way more interesting if they were to talk things out at first and see how they would evolve if Hwang helped her with her past instead of the author driving her to insanity just because. Regarding the main couple, I really don't know... I really really loved them but from chapter 90 till chapter 120 it's just a pain. I mean, after all they went through, the autor just straight up changes Taesoo's personality. I know it's trying to portray his feelings of insecurity regarding Sooha and their future together but it's just so badly executed that it hurts. At least it's a happy ending... And rip Garam and his story I guess... To summarize, I think it's worth reading. I was really invested in the characters, which was what got me through the later chapters. Don't bother with the side stories though... I really mean it!
