* Quote from Manhwa Bookshelf : http://manhwabookshelf.com/2011/04/10/ill-fated-relationship/
“Hwang’s style is sparse, both visually and narratively, creating an environment that feels both intimate and detached at the same time. While the limited use of color suggests a similarly subdued emotional palette, the lack of detail (both background and foreground) brings each emotional beat into sharp focus”
