KookHwa Huh / SuJin Kim – Yen Press – 2009 – 5 volumes
Yes. This will be short, since I’ve already talked about why I like the series so much. But I still like it. A lot. A little more with every volume, too.
The appearance of the villain in this volume was quite nice. I loved her tactics, and I loved that the mask’s importance was played up even more when Si-Joon pointed out that there’s no way to recognize Mu-Yeon’s real face. I also liked that Mu-Yeon finally got serious and told Si-Joon that there was no helping him out of this one. The cliffhanger was agonizing, but I suppose it wasn’t as bad as the one from last volume, were we were led to believe that we would get to see Mu-Yeon’s face.
I also loved the aftermath of the confrontation between Mu-Yeon and Doe-Doe. Doe-Doe definitely came out on the worse side of that all around, and what happened between Mu-Yeon and Si-Joon was pretty cute. I particularly loved the promise that Mu-Yeon extracted from Si-Joon before she did her part, and how sad it made her when she realized what was actually going to happen. Aww.
Something I always forget to mention, but I also love Mu-Yeon’s clothing. She wears traditional Korean clothes, and they get pretty ornate during one or two scenes in this volume. It’s a nice detail, and I like that it’s one more thing that really, really separates her from everyone else Si-Joon knows.
But now I have to wait until April for the next volume, which apparently really does have the mask coming off. I will suffer in silence, but I’ll miss it in the interim. Maybe enough to pick up a few issues of Yen Plus.
