Cute story! I've been keeping up with this for about a year now, and while it was a slow start, things really picked up in the second season. If you're here for the smut, I'd you're in for a wait.

Overall, good office romance. I like the other office workers, and (at least among web comics) it's a pretty reasonable/normal office environment.

Story :

I really like the story <3 even tho it's kind lf a slowburn which i really dont like, but the pacing here is so good. And the best thing of all~ its not cliche at all <3. The author really has a talent for making misunderstandigs tho- but it's really fun to see how much they misunderstands the other one and keeps bickering bcs of it lmaooo. Well i only read the s1 as of writing this review- but it already got me really hooked :D there r still so many questions unanswered abt hyunsoo's past, and wow the author really just decided to hang all of us ಡ ͜ ʖ ಡ.

Art :

Plsssss the art is so unique and cute at the same time (●♡∀♡). I cant help but falling in love w the chibis lmaoo. And um.. welp, their bodies r hot so.. +1000 points.

Character :

Man, i really love this pair. They're really childish and mature at the same time so it's really fun to see them lmao. And even tho they're like the sides of the same coin, their chemistry is just (人*´∀`)。*゚+. AAAAAAA I JUST WANT THEM TO HOOK UP AND BE HAPPY AAAAAA. Well, ngl sometimes they can be kinda annoying bcs they bicker everytime they see eachother, but the artist made it look really funny lmao, so i always enjoy it everytime. And... kudos for all other side characters.. THE PEOPLE IN THEIR DEPARTMENT IS JUST SOOOO CUTE AND KIND. I REALLY LIKE THEM. (And well, manager kim is so hot so-). I still cant comment abt the antagonists tho, since they dont really hv a presence in s1 (well, to me at least..)

Should you read this? Totally! If you love romcom ;)) (it means romance-comedy, just in case someone doesnt know..)

It's a very cliche theme of office life enemies-to-lovers/opposites attract, but is a very nice slow burn. 

Seo Hyunsoo (very pretty face with black hair & light hazel eyes) is the MC since we see things from his perspective most of the time.  He is a bit of a high maintenance guy who doesn't like unruly behavior or loud obnoxious noises, he keeps to a pretty consistent schedule, has a good work ethic and tends to not care about other people's business.  He has been transferred to a new department of a men's fashion magazine as a team manager/lead.  There he meets Baek Youngchan (blonde/light haired blue/green eyed zaddy with a babyface) who is another, rather famous, team leader in the same department.  Youngchan is kind of like an overexcited great dane, he always has a lot of energy and is generally pretty boisterous, but he is also a good worker for the magazine.  They initially meet at an office dinner where Hyunsoo hears Youngchan doing something naughty in a bathroom stall, which makes Hyunsoo consider Youngchan as a degenerate from that point on.  They butt heads in the office since they are polar opposites and seem to be able to work each other up.  There is a mystery concerning Hyunsoo's past in another department of the magazine where some troubles happened between him and his previous coworkers that serves as an interesting underlying narrative for the whole story that seems to finally start to come to a head when Hyunsoo & Youngchan's department goes on a company retreat with Hyunsoo's old department.  Something happens during this retreat that finally boils over the sexual tension that has been building for 24 chapters and it's very worth it (smut does not happen often, but when it does it is explicit and very well done imo).  There is a pretty good cast of side characters that each have their own distinct personalities and circumstances and they serve to really flesh out the story nicely and provide some breathing room for the MCs so that they're not always solely concerned with each other.  The artstyle can sometimes seem a bit simplified in the noses of the faces, but it has really grown on me and I especially like how the artist does serious or aroused faces now.  Would definitely give this a read if you prefer slow build story driven smut rather than just people having sex right away.

Edit: on Ch. 49 now and still really like this.
