Item description for Hissing, Vol. 1 (v. 1) by Eun-young Kang...

Da-Ae, an aspiring comic artist, comes across Seon-Nam, a softie whose ultimate goal is simply to become a 'tough guy.' Seon-Nam is gradually attracted to Da-Ae, but it seems like the bond between them is turning out to be a curse. Da-Ae and Seon-Nam fall in love with each other, not knowing that they are connected by a complicated family history. Da-Ae's mother and Seon-Nam's father had an affair before they were killed in a car accident. On top of that, they also gave birth to Da-Ae's brother, Da-Wa!

Reviews - What do customers think about Hissing, Vol. 1 (v. 1)?

Confusing, Bland, but pretty artwork   Jun 18, 2008
I can't let this series get away with the 5-star rating is currently has. I read the first volume when it came out (have sold it since then) and was very disappointed. The only thing it had going for it was the pretty art inside. It was so bland and confusing that I barely remember anything about the plot or characters.

The characters names and lack of personality or differentiating qualities had me wondering who was who much of the time, and the story made hardly any progress in the course of one volume, yet it didn't use that time to develop the characters either.

If you want some good manhwa try INVU, Honey Mustard, Bring It On, or Chocolat.
Surprised by the quality!  Jun 29, 2006
I read this at the B&N and liked it so much I brought it home! (I paid for it, obviously)

Hissing is a story that seems to revolve around three main characters; Da-eh, an aspiring manhwa-ga, Sun-Nam, a cutie who wants to be a toughie, and slightly less important is pretty-boy Ta-jun, who's got a vendetta for Da-eh!! Da-eh and Sun-Nam seem to have some kind of complicated family past, but what could it be!? (Don't read ice Kunion's synopsis if you don't want spoilers).

Overall, I was very surprised and pleased with this book, since it's rare that I fully enjoy Korean manhwa - that is, both the art AND the story. Story is better than most manhwa, and the well thought-out composition and strong but detailed art compliment it well. The last time I enjoyed manhwa a lot was King of Hell and Demon Diary (not a big fan of Glass Moon or INVU or Audition. I prefer this to Gung, too).

So for a story that has a good mix of humor and solemnity as well as great manhwa references from our protagonist Da-eh, I can only recommend this book with five stars!!
