Rec: Totally Captivated by Hajin Yoo

Synopsis: The mafia threatens Ewon into working for a loan shark, where he’s forced to run dangerous errands for no pay. The culprit who doomed Ewon to this life is none other than Jiho, Ewon’s jealous ex who still burns at Ewon’s infidelity. Their gang leader Mookyul, with movie-star good looks and the bizarre, drunken habit of biting people on the neck, takes a keen interest in his attractive new errand boy. Will Ewon be able to survive the violent underworld (not to mention the constant sexual harassment) he must endure as an underling of Mookyul? This funny, hip title by Hajin Yoo will thrill and amuse fans with plenty of intense shonen-ai action (Source: Netcomics)

My thoughts: This manhwa has an interesting storyline with a plot that kept me wondering “what, who, why, how?!” throughout the whole series. The two main characters; Ewon and Mookyul, grew on me as the story went on. The domineering nature of Mookyul and the eventual sacrifices he made for Ewon made this a beautiful, love story indeed. Of course, their story is not without its bits of angst but it has its funny moments thrown in too. Certain scenes will make you laugh out loud while others will tug at your heart strings. The artist did such a good job of blending both making this a manhwa I reread when I can find the time to.
