Manhwa Review: Very! Very! Sweet, Vol. 1 (v. 1) [Paperback]

I've finished "Very Very Sweet Vol. 1" by SangEun Lee and Geo.

Product Description

A spoiled brat from a wealthy Japanese family, Tsuyoshi is unceremoniously shipped off to Korea by his strict grandfather who tells him the family secret - they're Korean! Sparks fly when the resentful high schooler arrives at the airport and shares an impromptu cab ride with Kang Be-Ri, a plucky girl who happens to be his new neighbor. Will the two ever get past their differences? And will Tsuyoshi learn to accept his new destiny?

My Review:

The characters remind me so much of the characters from Chocolat their previous series.

Tsuyoshi = E-Soh
Kang Be-Ri = Kim-Ji
Oppa/Tsuyoshi's uncle = E-Wan

Tsuyoshi is a rich spoil brat that is sent to Korea to learn his roots and when he shares a ride with the do-it yourself frugal Be-Ri Kang (who has a thing for her sister's boyfriend Oppa who lives with them as a tenant) the sparks definitely fly especially the spit.

The manhwa has lots of hot guys, hilarious laughing moments, two cute cats Gu-Nyang and Doki (Be-Ri Kang's cat Gu-Nyang talks), beautiful artwork and some interesting cultural jokes.
