This could have been a amazing horror story, but the pictures didnt feel so real, it did go to fast and it didnt have much text.
As a book it would have been good, but as manga/graphic it wasnt so good.

Though I did pick up on the general idea of what was happening, this was sort of all over the place and got confusing. Not sure if I will finish out the series.

I'm boosting this up an extra star for that sequence with the teacher. Because, let's be honest, I almost crapped myself.


When I first picked up this book at the library, I did so only because of the cover. It's the only horror manga I've seen stocked so why not, right? And surprisingly, the fact that this is Korea's first horror Shoujo manga did not put me off, even though I abhor Shoujo style and plotlines. Though, I was annoyed to read the 'for girls' part in the Goodreads info. I understand

As a fan of horror & Korean manhwa, I was intrigued by the idea of a posessed book. I picked it up at a local Borders as part of a sale figuring that even if I didn't like it, it would still be a "win-win" situation as I got it cheaper than it would normally be.

The plotline partially follows a young teenager (Eun-Sae) who agrees to help volunteer to clean up a horribly neglected library with her crush Kyung-Do. As she tries her best to get him to notice her (and succeeds rather quickly), sh

Being a big fan of books I was super excited when I saw this at Midtown Comics. The idea of a horror story that revolved around a book was super appealing. Unfortunately this didn't quite live up to my expectations. I feel like I missed the first volume of the story. We didn't really get to know the characters very well. It almost felt like we jumped into the middle of the story. I felt nothing drawing me in to want to continue reading the story. The only interesting parts of the book were the ...more

I have been missing a good horror manga, but It took me a bit to get into this. The story just didn't flow smoothly early on. I finally started getting into it in the last couple of chapters. The premise is great. I like the artwork. I would like to give vol. 2 a try, but it seems that they gave up on the English version. So, I would say skip this title. Like many first volumes, this sets up what would come in later volumes. Without further publishing, this does not stand on its own as a complet ...more

"Fear and insanity take hold in Korea's first horror comic for girls!" LOL. Btw itu dari blurb bahasa Inggrisnya. Saya sih baca yang versi terjemahannya, cuma kayaknya belum ada entrynya dan saya juga lagi malas bikin entry. Makanya ngerate di versi yang ini :p

Jilid pertamanya ini lumayan bagus dan berhasil membuat saya penasaran. Ada misteri apa sebenarnya di balik buku misterius itu?

it was okay. A girl horror comic which brings a romantic theme with a horror plot of a book that that is possessed and calls people to death.

at the end, I was intrigued and would probably read vol. 2 if I already had it. Will I buy it now though? Probably not.

Classic! Can't wait to read volume 2! I have to admit that this is a very interesting subject to mold the story around. I have to say that there is better "horror manga(manhwa)" out there, but this to me, was exceptional at the moment.

A solid manhwa horror series. The concept -- a cursed book -- seems simple on the surface, but the execution went places I didn't expect, and the art is truly chilling in places. Recommended for any horror fan.

I couldn't follow this at all. There are about 7 female characters who are not differentiated in any way.
