I really hope this isn't going somewhere awful. In almost every Korean romance comic I've read, some guy (or sometimes a woman) does something horrific and illegal (assault, rape, attempted rape, threatening someone's family, blackmail, etc.) and NO ONE EVER GOES TO THE POLICE. Even when the police get involved, THE VICTIM DOESN'T PRESS CHARGES, rationalizing it with some bullshit, like "as long as they stay away from me from now on, it's enough".

Aside from my rant, this is just a really tired and cliche plot development that has nothing to do with the actually interesting parts of the story and just serves to create meaningless suspense.

Oh, that's why this comic makes no sense. It takes place in an alternate universe, as evidenced by the fact that the characters live in a world where chicken makes your face puffy.

Sadly that horrific stuff is a trope unto itself in a whole subset of television, in Soap Operas, Telenovella, K-Drama, etc.

It filters into the literary side of things as well sometimes. Whilst I love me some drama sometimes, I see the stuff you mention in a story and it loses any kind of dramatic tension and becomes almost Dadaist in its silliness.

There was an era of yuri, where almost every story had the most ludicrous "drama" tacked on, and inevitably one of the leads would either die of a "mysterious disease", get sexually assaulted, or decide they needed a "normal life" and marry some random guy.

And Korean (and some Chinese) wlw stuff seems to be going through that phase right now.

How far through are you?

I'm just talking about what's been translated and presented so far on this site (that's all I've read). So purely speculating about further developments. But the ex-boyfriend turning into a crazy stalker is simply boring, and contributes nothing to this story. The main plot is much more interesting than this kind of tired cliche.

Agreed. I don't mind it if it's well-developed. After all, people are assaulted in real life, and often they find themselves unwilling or unable to go to the authorities. I do know people who have had horrible things done to them, and in an attempt to forget them and return to their normal lives, they try to pretend that it never happened.

However, the way it's presented in fiction is often really aggravating because it's somehow shown to be the "right" thing to do - that declining to press charges on the stalker/serial-rapist goes somehow makes you the better person, when in reality it's a personal failure that (though understandable - not blaming people who suffer for the decisions they make out of fear) could condemn the next victim to the same fate.

Hopefully this story is going in a different direction. But I'm already irritated enough that her decision to give him back his ring instead of pawning it to cover his debt was somehow shown as liberating. That plus this stalking plot-line have triggered some warning signals for me.

Kinda skirting the line on spoilers there, be careful with that stuff.

Sorry, i didn't i might be skirting the line a bit there when i originally wrote it. I'll edit it slightly.

Oh, it's fine. You were getting close, not all the way over. Remember, you can still post spoilers if they're appropriately tagged.

It was less "you did something wrong" and more "mind the gap".

I imagine it's because it was very spicy and she cried like a little baby.

I was kinda like that the first (and only) time I tried jerk chicken.

Man, I just wanted to throttle him. If their not gonna call the police, can someone at least hit him.

This stuff just bothers me. Geez. Unhand her!

I know this is just a story, but I wish some of these stories showed consequences for this sort of thing. Ugh! Don't normalize it. No more.

Gah!!

It'll be good once Dynasty catches up to what has been translated.

I assume we are waiting for original translator rather than the one who is up to date.

They're going to the hospital because he grabbed her wrist? What a waste of time.

Hospital care in Korea is extremely affordable and efficient. People go in for minor issues like colds all the time.

Also, wrists have a pretty complicated bone structure, so unless your arm muscles are developed enough, it's rather easy to dislocate them. Jang-Mi doesn't look like she does much weight-lifting, so checking up with a doctor is not a bad idea.

If your wrist is thin enough, and the grip is strong enough, it is concerning to have stiffness/swelling/limited movement as it is possible for someone to crush a small wrist.

I've taken someone to the ED before for having had a car door slam on their fingers, with the concern something like the nerves or blood vessels had been crushed, or even the ligaments being torn, etc. This was in Australia...

Another adult life story ruined by bisexuality. No thank you, I'll take lesbians or nothing at all.

that's pretty biphobic

I think they just mean that they don't want any men ruining the manga, just in case it ends up being an aaaaaaangsty manga, which I'm pretty sure it won't be
