Interesting. About obsession.
This first volume introduces us to the main characters and sets up the plotline for the rest of the series. The problem here, for me, is that Lee Vin seems to be trying too hard, but not succeeding in development for this first volume. Lee Vin's male protagonist is not such a loveable or smart lunkhead, and both Hae Jung and Jimmy seem contrived. Their "crazyness" is not so crazy. And just WHY is everyone so enamored of whiny, melodramatic, self-absorbed, complaining Hae Jung?
I did, however, find the artwork appealing. Perhaps because it is Korean instead of Japanese, these weren't typical shoujo girls and bishounen boys, although the differences are subtle. Bo Na is a big-eyed, big hair cutesy girl, and Jimmy is long-haired bad boy rebel cutie, but still... they seem different than their typical Japanese counterparts. Sung Moo is supposed to be a handsome aspiring singer, but is oddly awkward. Jimmy is the bishi boy cutie for the series...Refreshing.
Book description mentions several other series, and I enjoyed Mars and Gravitation far more than I enjoyed this. I.N.V.U. seems more comparible to this. I'll continue to read on, but overall, this introductory volume left me cold.
This series is phenomenal. It's wild and crazy with a deep plotline and lots of twists. It's a Korean comic, not a Japanese one, so it's still read from left to right. I just can't get over how good this was and I'm reccommending this to everyone.
