Manhwa Review: 13th Boy, Vol. 5 [Paperback]

I've finished "13th Boy Vol. 5" by SangEun Lee.

Product Description

Only fools rush in to burning buildings! Lucky for Sae-Bom and her stuffed-rabbit friend, Toe-Toe, Hee-So was foolish enough to do just that. But while the events of that day get the mean girls at school to apologize to Sae-Bom, Hee-So's charge seems sadder than ever, and she even stops bringing her beloved bunny to school! What exactly is the deal with that darned rabbit?  When her chicken-craving cactus, Beatrice, lets it slip about Whie-Young's special powers, will Hee-So finally begin to put two and two together about Beatrice, Toe-Toe, and Whie-Young?

My Review:

In this volume Hee-Soo drags Beatrice and Whie-Young over to Sae-Bom's for her birthday.  Sae-Bom is very happy but surprised.  They have cake which Won-Jun brought over and Hee-So makes seaweed soup as the main dish.  Everyone is surprised it's very good and nothing is left. 

Beatrice lets it slip about Whie-Young's special powers and Hee-So begs Whie-Young to bring Toe-Toe back to life.  Whie-Young has trouble saying no to her so he goes to Sae-Bom's room and grabs Toe-Toe the rabbit.  He practically yells at it and it suddenly goes to life and talks to him.  Then it throws him onto the bed and knocks him out (that was hilarious).  Toe-Toe and Sae-Bom are so happy to talk to each other again.  They have a heart to heart talk where Toe-Toe explains that Sae-Bom won't see him again since she has friends now.

Meanwhile downstairs in the bathroom Won-Jun and Hee-So are having a conversation.  He explains to her that he likes her and asks her out again.  Then he kisses her but Hee-So is confused not believing at first that he wants her back.  He finally convinces her when Sae-Bom interrupts them (both are too busy) to notice.  Sae-Bom seems upset when she goes back upstairs to her bedroom. 

Whie-Young has a talk to Sae-Bom about her liking him and he suggests testing that by using their bodies.  He grabs her chin and is about to kiss her but she asks him to stop.  Then he says she realizes she only thinks she likes him.  While this is happening Beatrice fell asleep in the living room.
