A Really Fun Read Jan 11, 2007
Chocolat was the first manhwa I read (I'm usually a manga person), and I'm glad I got to start off with such a great one! The Plot is simple: since she was late becoming a fan of the boy band DDL, Kum-ji was unable to join the fan club and is stuck being a 'normal' fan. So what does she do? Join the fan club of the up- and- coming band Yo-I instead. Now all she has to do is pretend to be a Yo-I fangirl while using her fanclub status(and the fact that her aunt works for Yo-I) to go to events that both Yo-I and DDL are at to try and get close to her favorite DDL member, Jin. But of course it isn't going to be that easy! Yo-I member E-soh finds out her secret and blackmails her into doing anything he says and then there's the other fanclub members jealous that she gets to be close to the band.
Chocolat was an overall great read. It was funny, cute, and holds a lot of promise for the future volumes. I also have to mention that the art was great as well. Also notable is that Ice Kunion (publisher) did a good job. I liked how the book was slightly larger and had a quality feel to it. I was also impressed with the author interviews in the back along with a preview of one of their other titles, Bring it on! If you're looking for something charming and satisfying to read, I highly recommend Chocolat. I can't wait to buy volume 2!!

Fun Korean manwha Dec 30, 2005
Chocolat is a great debut title from new publisher, Ice Kunion. (Chocolat was one of the 4 initial releases.) The artwork is very appealing and the story is, well, addictive! It's hard to find an entirely original story but this is at very least a fun new twist. I didn't feel like I had seen this all before while I was reading it. I know I can't wait to get Volume 2, so I suggest you try this title!
