Actually suprised that i liked it
the pacing was great in my opinion, each arc has a big plot that ends, its not like the pacing of most manhwa where after the "revenge" the story is finish and it takes about the whole manhwa for it to happen, here in olgami each arc has different sittuations which really change the perspective of the story which makes the reader still interested and invested with the story. This would have been a 9 for me, but i still saw some things that makes the manhwa bad, for example there is no real reason for the ML to fall for the FL, the ML tortured the hell out of her emotionaly, then after toying with her he suddenly gets infatuated to her. Plus the art style changed liked 3 times i guess, but it was a good change none the less it made it more modern. I also like that most chapters has a helll of a way to cliffhang readers, each chapter is long dont get me wrong, and its not a bad cliffhanger, since it makes you wanna read the next panell and each panel is actually important, the story just flows like that, many twist and happenings each chapter which is why i reccomend this if you wanna be invested in a mystery story.
Btw the romance is not "really" there, so you might get dissapointed if you reading for romance, but still the romance in this has potential so try to read it and come back to it, the romance here is worth waiting for since their dynamic or chemistry is fun to watch.
It's one of manhwa that waited for so long in my list. I thought the art wasn't really my liking so I didn't immediately read it. Surprisingly, it was one of the best manhwa I've read. In my humble opinion, this even worth to be adapted into k-drama. The story was really complicated, and while the romance was veeeery slow, I didn't really mind it because each chapters was just interesting and gave you roller coaster emotion. 😂
Keep in mind this was unusual romance manhwa, it was very dark. We got BLACK FLAG (not red anymore) male lead that I hated - until he got what he deserve 😂. And the artist didn't sugarcoat his appearance as vampire. He's handsome but scary af. When I said scary, it was literally and he was fit to be murderer in thriller movie 😂.
Female lead make us sympathize but she's also quite abusive. There was time where I mocked her decision, but most of the time, she was satisfying with all of her curse. And she WASN'T DENSE. I love that, probably this is my first time seeing FL like that in manhwa 🤣.
The art wasn't the prettiest but it matched so well with the dark tone of story. The artist portrayed emotion of characters through small movements and details, it was so good and when we got spicy moment, it made you hold breath. Lol. It has long chapters but it won't bore you. Check it out!
Reviewed at chapter 158.
I LOVED this story at first. The main characters had this amazing enemies to lovers dynamic and the female lead was incredibly tough. That's why, even though our male lead is a crazy murderer and psychopath, it never truly felt like he was abusing the fl (at least in my opinion). It was more like they were fighting against each other in my eyes.
Haaa... But let me tell you about how disappointed I'm feeling right now. I've read up until chapter 134 and in the recent chapters their character dynamic completely changes. In order not to spoiler you, let's just say he continuously approaches her in disguise and keeps abusing his power like a creep, to get away with harassing/ forcing himself onto her.
'_' There was such a wonderful redemtion arc for him before. He started to give up his own desires for her peace and happiness. So you're telling me now that this was all for nothing?!?!?!?😢😢
Idk man, maybe it's just me but now he's straight up starting to feel like an abusive creep to me and because of the way he approaches our female lead, her tough personality doesn't kick in so it literally just feels like him taking advantage of her.
Maybe I'm the stupid one for hoping they might end up with a sooomewhat healthy relationship but now it just feels painful to read and I don't enjoy their 'romance' AT ALL. -.- I just want my strong, intelligent female lead, who kicks the male leads ass, back. (crying)
Please don't continue to ruin this story for me😭 I it weren't for this toxic development I would've probably rated this manhwa a 10/10.
It's really good!
the main love interests are all supposed to suck (sometimes literally). They aren't forgiven, what they do is barely justified and the FL works hard to beat them at their own games.
The whole story is a mind game and it's great. The FL does everything in her power to survive against the psychopaths that enter her life. Nobody in this story is completely inocent, except maybe gerium, big maybe.
Normally I hate memory loss arcs but the one AHHH CHEFS KISS. So good. It just all makes perfect sense story wise and it's created some neat plot devices that feel natural.
Pretty good but be aware it is very slow paced
