Jin-Ho is a stubborn high school senior with a strong sense of right and wrong. Hae-Young is his beautiful homeroom teacher, equally headstrong and determined, still struggling to deal with her father's abandonment. After a chance meeting at a local bookstore, their lives are suddenly hopelessly intertwined and their fiery personalities continue to clash. From entering the wrong bathroom to an embarrassing spectacle at the local bath, Jin-Ho continues to make a fool of himself as Hae-Young reaches out to him in ways that only serve to flare up his notorious temper. Lim creates likable characters and injects them in the most awkward and embarrassing situations possible, while forcing them to deal with more serious issues of growing up and coping with stress. Lee's artwork adds a fun and flirty touch. The female characters all look like models, with shapely figures, tight-fitting clothing and a few too many panty shots. The fan service works with the book's campy, over the top humor. A fun and lighthearted read, this formulaic manhwa still sports a quirky sense of humor. (Oct.)
