The idea really has the potential to go somewhere much better. I'm itching to rewrite this entire story. For example, you'd expect to see the young bride adjust to her new home. You'd expect a palpable interaction & bonding between the spouses. You'd expect the bride to wonder at each conflict that arises, to prod further into everything that's happening. Because you know, we'll be on the same journey that she's on. Instead, her main concern is "zomg, i'm married to habaek but i've the hots for mui, but they both've the hots for dead nakbin." Since the main character doesn't take efforts in discovering her world, readers are dependent on flashes of other interactions, which of course involves everyone speaking in codes completed with vague conspiratory smirks. Vol 6 finally moved somewhere but then I realized they moved down the amnesiac road. Honestly? What is with Korean stories and amnesia.
Panel arrangement is also frequently a problem in this manga. I get confused at which action was done by which character, and who's saying what. Transition from scene to scene isn't so continuous and I wonder if this is because the author is still a novice.
I love holding the books in my hand and marvel at the pretty covers. Even the paper material feels so nice. But the superficial in me is no where near the superficial in this story. Best try it out in the bookstore first before buying.
