I've finished "Chocolat Vol. 2" by Ji-Sang Shin and Geo.

Product Description

Kum-Ji thought that she was willing to do anything to get closer to her favorite boy band, DDL, even if it meant that she had to join a fan club of their new rival group, Yo-i. But it is getting harder and harder to deal with E-Soh of Yo-i, the only one who knows about her little secret. And now, E-Soh drops a bomb on her when he admits that he likes her? What will Kum-ji do when she finds out that the boy with her most cherished secret likes her?

My Review:

Kum-Ji is still contending with E-Soh's blackmail demands when he drops a bomb on her - he admits he likes her.

Kum-Ji finds out that E-Wan's mother has died and he is going to the funeral (we learn that she was ill in the head and left her son by himself).  He meets his dad and they have an argument and his father slaps him one.  His dad commands him to get changed and to behave himself.

Kum-Ji arrives at the designated place and is surprised to see Barbie (she is E-Wan's #1 fan) there too.  E-Wan arrives and he starts yelling at them and insulting them.  Kum-Ji has had enough and she whacks him with her bag and he is surprised (I was laughing at this part because he really looked scary with one eye glaring out of the hole in the bag).  Barbie vows Kum-Ji will pay for hitting her E-Wan!

Kum-Ji is waiting for her aunt when E-Wan calls her over to help him with his costume.  They have a very enlightening conversation about loving someone unconditionally for no reason.  I believe he has a new respect for her after this conversation and this is the set up for the love triangle.

E-Wan calls Kum-Ji on her cell phone and in return he will introduce her to Jin her idol from DDL who is the hospital.  Kum-Ji doesn't fare well since she goes into fan mode and has trouble talking to him and she is fumbling around.  When she and E-Wan finally leaves he starts on her again about liking Jin, etc. and does she really think she has a chance with him.  She finally has enough and yells back at him and slams the door in his face.  I was laughing again because of the facial expression he had when she was yelling at him.

Also Kum-Ji forgot her cell in Jin's room and he calls E-Wan about it. E-Wan keeps her cell.  Kum-Ji realizes she forgot her phone and calls her cell and confesses her love for Jin.  E-Wan starts ragging on her again and tells her to come get her phone with all she has.  She does and beans E-Wan with paper but Barbie witnesses this again and she vows once again that Kum-Ji will pay for hitting her E-Wan.

DDL performs a concert and after E-Wan checks Kum-Ji's phone for messages and laughs when he realizes she is texting him with swear words.  Eun-Sang comments that this isn't like him and why he doesn't he just return the phone to Kum-Ji since she's just a kid.  E-Wan says it's fun and besides it makes him forget his problems.
