Manhwa Review: Chocolat Volume 1 (Chocolat (Yen)) (v. 1) [Paperback]

I've finished "Chocolat Vol 1" by Ji-Sang Shin and Geo.

Product Description

How far would you go to meet your favorite boy band? Keum-Ji was little late getting under the spell of the chart topping boy band DDL. Unable to join the DDL fan club, she almost gives up meeting her idols until she develops a cunning plan, becoming a top member of their rival fan club for a brand-new boy group, Yo-I (Chocolat). This way she can always be near Yo-I at all their concerts. Funnily enough Yo-I always seem to play the same shows with DDL. It's almost the perfect plan except it's really complicated being a super fan for one band when your heart lies with another. Follow the adventures of Keum-Ji in this full-blown romantic comedy as she tries to keep her scheme together.

My Review:

Kum-Ji was late in becoming a fan of the boy band DDL and wasn't able to join the fan club so she is stuck being one of the normal fans.  Instead she joins the fan club for their rival Yo-I and now she just needs to pretend she is a fan of Yo-I and use her fan club status (also her aunt works for Yo-I) to be at events that both Yo-I and DDL are at and to be near her favorite Yo-I Jin.

Yo-I member E-Soh finds out her secret and uses that to blackmail her in doing everything he wants or says and she also has to contend with jealous fan club members.

I thought it was funny how E-Soh would make Kum-Ji jump through hoops and it was a delight to see and hear E-Wan's foul mouth.  You never know what might come out of his mouth.

Hmm I don't know why everyone thought Kum-Ji was ugly though she could manage a better hair style.  I didn't think she's ugly!
