For a shoujo-type manhwa, this title had many, many historical references and names that I had no clue about but am now interested in seeing more. The main girl character, though completely caught up in her unrequited love, is actually quite plucky/sassy in all other ways. Where she could have been the typical angsty, moony teen, she knows she likes this guy and does EVERYTHING to get his attention, including jumping through time, running away from a secure home where she could have been the equ...more
If you like manga that has a good storyline, then this is your time. Sarasah is a great book, about a girl, who falls in love with a boy named Seng Huy, and decieds to confess her love to him. He has turned her down many times, but she decides to try one last time, on his birthday, and takes things a little to far. She falls down a flight of stairs, and almost dies. She must travle back in time, and get the heart of Seng Huy before it's to late.
You know it's love when you will go back in time to win the affections of the man you love. Ji-Hae is crazy in love with a classmate, but he wants nothing to do with her. Finding out that he hates her...even enough to attempt murder causes her to travel back in time and discover what happened in the past to cause their rift.
Bored by the story. Disliked the main character intensely. Do you think that maybe your love interest doesn't like you because you're stalking him? Just a thought. The (eventual) historical setting is at least different, but the character is painfully bad at adapting to her new surroundings. In that she makes no actual effort to adapt herself. The art is pretty enough, but I can't get past the dull story and horrible main character.
pretty art in modern soonjung style, engaging characters and story. and as a bonus you get history! (i suspect for the intended audience this is as familiar as joan of arc or mary q of s or something, but it's all new to me.)
girl stalks boy, boy pushes girl downstairs, girl breaks neck, goddess sends girl back to previous life to sort things out. Previous life is in Shilla (pre-unification Korea) and girl is ... really bad at adapting herself to contemporary customs. Prince destined to be legendary king is kind of hot.
I've always enjoyed manwha as much as manga, but some elements in Sarasah just didn't jive enough for me. The artwork is beautiful and the story premise is interesting. Some parts, though, drag and I don't quite see the point of Thorny other than to be cute and annoying.
