From a young age, Haemin has always been stimulated by pretty things. Back then, it was the luster of a new toy or a classmate’s slender hands. Now, it’s his sunbae’s beautiful face. Now that he’s in college, his gaze is drawn to Youngwon: the most popular and downright gorgeous guy in school. Afraid to approach him, he photographs Youngwon from afar, the pictures he takes feeding his secret fantasies. But when Youngwon finds out, Haemin is forced to face the object of his desires. Before he knows it, those secret fantasies start becoming a whole lot more real…
The beggining really has a conection to the title - story relates aroung camera, photoghaphy. It was really exciting and interesting and I wanted to see how that will evolve in the sotry but somehow this topic sadly dissapears later on. The story continues to different direction, focusing on relationship between two main characters and it's still nice and all, but I'd prefer if the story included the topic from the beggining. Somewhere in the middle, a new couple is introduced and the story only focues on those, even though there could be so much more to get to know about the first, main couple. That was a bit of a shame but still a nice story about the second couple. I feel like those two stories could be in seperated mangas, but okay. It was still a nice read that made me laugh, feel the love, that made cutesy moments which made my heart skip a bit. And I must say, the art-style was really to my taste, really nice, which probably made it a bit better in total and made you forget that the story switched themes a few times. And of course, the hot and steamy scenes were included haha.
Everything starts out great. You have a nice sunbae-hoobae relationship for the first 50 chapters. Then we meet 2 completely new people and they just take over the whole story. Like what the fck? It's called VIEWFINDER. That suggests CAMERAS and PHOTOGRAPHY. Barely any of it in the story at all. And the characters associated with photography just disappear like Sangwoo's mother's body. Completely ridiculous. Great art tho.
Ok hunty I get some BL stories like having several side couples if they're going down the long chapters route but the secondary pair is uncalled for. It's called "viewfinder" & yet the second couple gets an official ending while the main first just somehow gets tossed aside without a closed conclusion. It's disappointing I'm afraid to say. They shoud just make it a separate series if they're going to cram another love story in there. The plot is generic, the bit that UNREALISTICALLY STOOD OUT for me was Haemin's one-month growth spurt. He went from being a bottom-looking timid boy to a freaking top with an evolved buffed bod *say whaaat*. The artist might be the one pressured into drawing Haemin with a ripped brawn befitting of a top. Look, I'm all for these men subverting these roles by defeating the superficial aspects of it BUT Haemin didn't just buff up overnight his drastic personality change made him into a different person too... and when we knew that Young was a bottom his top-ish personality diminished into a rather passive one after his confessions to Haemin after 40 fucking chapters of playing around with his feelings. Young could be a power bottom and Haemin could be a coy top for the long run they dun need to fit into traditional seme + uke standards a lil change of pace is refreshing for the readers too hun. As for Young's ex.... that lil shit could bring some drama but he was cast aside to "the forgotten side characters list" sadly. And Dongha's a replica of Young in terms of their air and nature.... eg. Confusing their partner by their vague advances. *snoooores*
