This is my reread review, click to read my original review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

I was planning on starting the fourth volume, but I kind of realized that I somewhat forgot what happened in this first volume (and also I just wanted to reread it because it's so good) so I reread it.

This series definitely has a lot of issues (as in problems, not chapters), but it's just so entertaining none the less.

3.5/5 stars.

I liked this a lot more than I thought I would...

I bought volumes 2 and 3 from Book Outlet and I couldn't find the first volume from there or Chapters so I ended up reading this online.

This is basically Shakespeare's Twelfth Night set in a Korean highschool. Tae has got Bieber fever on this model named Kung Kang. Her lookalike cousin sees posters of Kung up in Taes room and comments on how he didn't know his classmate was a model. Cue Taes brilliant plan of the ol' gender switcharoo

[Reseña Global 5/5]

K2 es un manhwa raro, con una trama y personajes con los que es imposible identificarse y un dibujo muy flojo. Tampoco es que sea la peor historia del mundo, algunos capítulos están entretenidillos, y la primera historia (esa que no tiene relevancia en la trama principal) me pareció simpática, pero personalmente creo que lo único peor que que algo no te guste, es que te deje indiferente. Y así es como me ha dejado K2.

Únicamente lo recomiendo para los fans de manhwa "abiertos d

When Tae finds out that the model Kun goes to her look alike male cousin Jung-Woo's school, she conveniences him to switch places with her for a week to meet him. So begins their cross dressing, and when Tae meets Kun it's only after his best friend Ga-Woon beats her up. Tae finds herself unexpectedly up against Jung-Woo's unpopularity, and gangs, and what's more Kun and Ga-Woon may be falling for a her they think is a he, until Kun spots Jung-Woo in a dress (whose side of things would have been ...more

I didn't think the story was very good, but I've read far, far worse, and I liked the art style. The story seemed pretty contrived, which I feel silly for saying because that's probably true of manga I've read that I liked much better. But, for example, at the very beginning, the main character is describing her younger male character. She says that he looks just like her, then goes on to say that he even has her mannerisms and everything. First of all, that goes beyond my suspension of disbelie ...more

"Kill me, Kiss me" is a cute story about a girl changing gender for a week with her (male) cousin for a week to get to know a boy she adores.
It feels a bit rushed and there are alot more the author could have done with the dilemma but I still liked it. It was like a good cookie, not a yummy brownie, but a good sweet cookie.

Moje první Manhwa. A musím říct, že líp jsem začít nemohla. Velice milý a vtipný kousek. Ga Woona jsem si hned oblíbila, roztomilej drsňák s a Tae-yeon taková malá drsňačka, všem dokázala nakopat zadek :D Jsem zvědavá na druhý díl. Jung-Woo a nová láska? to zní dost dobře :P

This review is for the first volume only.

Kill Me, Kiss Me is an enjoyable manga to read. Like many shoujo manga it starts off with a young girl that wants to get closer to the idol/boy that she likes. She switches places with her cousin who happens to look just like her in order to go to the same school as her idol. There she meets not only her idol but his annoying best friend that she ends up spending a lot of time with.

In the end she has to decide whether or not she wants the brash punk or t

Loved this book, first read it when I borrowed it, then bought my own copy.

The names took me a bit to get used to, I'd read Japanese manga before, and was sued to those names, but had never come across Korean names before.

Thes story is funny and silly at times, and the fight scenes are good too. ^_^

Of course, these stories tend to be predictable and the dialogue a bit cheesy/out-dated but I just love them. I'm a sucker for character(s) cross-dressing. The gender-bending is hilarious.

Gender bender~
I remember the plot line, but this is the 1st part of the series. It focuses around the two twins, and well, really REALLY weird things happen when they switch places. :)

Tato manga mě hned od začátku dostala.Příběh byl originální a hlavně takový školní ze života,takže žádné fantasy,ale moc se mi to líbilo.Těším se na další pokračování.

There was nothing too shocking or groundbreaking here, but it was an enjoyable read with lots of gender bending and a nice flashback at the end

Včerejší (re)reading celé série. Druhý a třetí díl čtený anglicky na netu, pátý díl čtený stejně jako předchozí jmenované poprvé.

Very interesting. A little bizarre. I don't quite understand the fascination with cross dressing but overall a cute storyline.

By far the best manwha I've read, and definitely in the top 20 manga I've read. Very awesome and intriguing story.
