- SANDRA SCHOLES for Active Anime
Downtrodden Ewon Jung philosophises his life while working for a suspicious office at the Saehan Credit Union rumoured to be where the local mafia operate daily. Ewon sees those around him and keeps his mind on his job while the ones above him order him around most of the time to clean up and make cups of coffee. Bringing them what they need, Ewon finds he is required at the office anyway and those around him actually like the way he makes an iced coffee, and other culinary activities, but these are not the only errands he has to do, thanks to Jiho Shin, his former boyfriend forcing him to work for a loan shark - Ewon has much more dangerous errands to run these days. Later after Jiho and Mookyul have arrived in the office, Ewon reflects on his life as it was before when he and Jiho were a couple and very much in love, yet Jiho was always the jealous type, shouting at him for looking at other boys when Jiho felt he should be his only source of affection. Offended at Ewon looking at other men, Jiho calls off the relationship only to have endless calls and texts on his mobile. When Jiho finally got back in touch with his former lover, he is warned by Mookyul, Jiho's new lover that if he ever sees him again, it will be the last time as he thinks he is stalking his lover. But when Jiho helps him out by mentioning that Ewon can be tried out as a general assistant at his office making use of him, he asks Ewon if he will do it for him as he has been his lover before and thinks he can manipulate him. Thinking he should have just left Jiho alone and not thought about it he actually agrees to be a mafia underling responsible for anything and everything. One day Ewon is advised by Mookyul to collect the cash and pay his dues for the mafia family. If not – he will have to leave town. A distraught Ewon is forced to wonder whether Jiho had him do this as a form of harsh punishment for their failed relationship, or is there love in the air for the young male after all? Readers will love the thoughts that go on inside this boy's head as he tries to rationalise what he does and thinks, and completely changes his mind afterwards, thus getting him into much more trouble than he thought was possible. He wishes so much that he had apologised after the fight, and made right things between them as he realises he did love him very much during their short time together. The story takes an interesting turn when Ewon goes on his errands for cash back from the borrowers of the Saehan Credit Union, and finds regular people much poorer than himself who are trying to make ends meet. Ewon in this goes through a dramatic change of personality after those he tries to get money from make fun of him and think they can keep telling him they cannot pay in time. The artwork is sensual, the boys beautifully drawn, and their curves emphasised in this first volume of a stunning work by Hajin Yoo. The boys slanted and large eyes let the reader see how lovely they really are - even Jiho who does look a little uke in this manga will drive the pulse through the roof. IN SUMMARY: Heart-racing romance, beautifully crafted and certainly not to be missed. It is a perfect Christmas present for any shonen-ai enthusiast.
