    what do you do when you accidentally get a yaoi manga without knowing what it is? you read the whole thing at 1am. it was truly everything i expected from yaoi. the writing was bad, the art was decent but the same as literally all other yaoi manga art, the characters were not believable in any shape or form. they’re the kind of Gay Soft Boi™️ straight girls love to fetishize so much and yet they’re supposed to be these ruthless mafia men with rough backgrounds (which was too clear, i’m not that what do you do when you accidentally get a yaoi manga without knowing what it is? you read the whole thing at 1am. it was truly everything i expected from yaoi. the writing was bad, the art was decent but the same as literally all other yaoi manga art, the characters were not believable in any shape or form. they’re the kind of Gay Soft Boi™️ straight girls love to fetishize so much and yet they’re supposed to be these ruthless mafia men with rough backgrounds (which was too clear, i’m not that dumb, i got it the first three times we were shown thanks). also i’m shelving this as chick lit because let’s be real, the only people that read these unironically are female.

    En realidad lo he leído en la versión Kindle que consta de 9 capítulos en lugar de los cuatro tomos. Ahora me arrepiento un poco de no haberlo comprado en papel 😓 Pero bueno, mi espalda me lo agradecerá cuando me toque hacer mudanza... Muy recomendable, una historia sencilla que termina ofreciendo algo más, y el dibujo es 😍😍😍

    4.5/5 This was so beautiful, both the artwork and the quiet melancholy of the story. It's a short series so I'm worried it will break my heart, but I'm invested until the end. 4.5/5 This was so beautiful, both the artwork and the quiet melancholy of the story.

    I finished all four paperback volumes in one sitting because I couldn't put them down. I loved the art and the story was great. Jiwoon and Soohan's relationship seemed fragile and yet very strong. The only thing that rubbed me the wrong way was when (view spoiler)[ Soohan didn't want Jiwoon to get out and find a job after they escaped and started living together. I see where he was coming from but that doesn't make it right. He did redeem himself somewhat with what he says before the story ends I finished all four paperback volumes in one sitting because I couldn't put them down. I loved the art and the story was great.

    Gonna order it next month. Setelah liat blurb di tiap volume, kayanya bagus nih manhwa. Bikin aku teringat Moonlight, Tiger and Smoke. Ditambah judulnya itu, intense love antara dua orang pendiam di dunia mafia. XD Ada 9 volume. Terpaksa dicicil belinya, ga sanggup sekaligus. X( Secara harganya lbh mahal ketimbang manga terjemahan Inggris lain. Gonna order it next month. Setelah liat blurb di tiap volume, kayanya bagus nih manhwa.

    I bought this manhwa for my exploration into the Yaoi genre. This was the first time that I read Yaoi Korean fiction, which made it really fascinating for me because as a culture, LGBT+ is not as accepted like in other countries. Which surprises me that not only was this published, but translated into English. It gives me the thought that perhaps that the publishers believe that the main market is perhaps not it's native people. I really liked this book. It follows the story of Jiwoon and Soohan.

Jiwoon is a part of a gang, and gets exiled to the red light district. He has to stay with Soohan, who spends his time looking after the prostitutes but is a mute, and the story goes from there. I do want to say though, that the story so far is not sexually explicit. I think that is the reason why I liked it so much because it focuses on the characters and their development. Especially seeing as both Jiwoon and Soohan hardly speak, so their story is told through the beautiful artwork. But when language is used, it is beautiful. I can already tell that this series will be emotional. Plus Jiwoon is a diamond that needs to be protected. I really like this manhwa and I would recommend it if you are interested in yaoi!

    OMG I haven't read manga in years. This is the first yaoi manga I have ever read and I absolutely love it. This book doesn't have much in the way of a relationship between the two main characters but it is about the interpersonal relationships that they have with the outside world. Vol. 1 is mostly about the world building and the first stirrings of a crush from Jiwoon's side. Soohan is a mute so we really don't get much in the way of his personality except when we see him helping those around h OMG I haven't read manga in years.

    I don't read a lot lately. Stumbled upon this and absolutely fell in love. The art is just so gorgeous and stunning. I just love the whole atmosphere and melancholy tone of the whole story. I love the two broken and misunderstood MCs, and how in the midst of such terrible and crappy situations, they are in their own world when together. Going on my top favorites for sure. These are available online in ebook formats. I recommend getting the four volumes, not the individual chapters. I don't read a lot lately. Stumbled upon this and absolutely fell in love.

    Intense is a Korean boys love graphic novel series featuring main character Jiwoon Kang. Orphaned by the mafia, yet still tangled up with the warring gangs, Jiwoon is sent to the red light district in a shady-enough-as-it-is town, meant to keep the peace as needed. There he is offered housing with Soohan, a local young man. While Jiwoon is a very quiet person himself--having seen his own father murdered in front of him, he is interested in the fact that Soohan actually talks less than he does, s Intense is a Korean boys love graphic novel series featuring main character Jiwoon Kang. Orphaned by the mafia, yet still tangled up with the warring gangs, Jiwoon is sent to the red light district in a shady-enough-as-it-is town, meant to keep the peace as needed. There he is offered housing with Soohan, a local young man. While Jiwoon is a very quiet person himself--having seen his own father murdered in front of him, he is interested in the fact that Soohan actually talks less than he does, something he never imagined could be a possibility. It turns out Soohan is a mute, hence the lack of vocalization. When Jiwoon kisses Soohan in a moment of vulnerability, their already non-existent relationship may never even blossom. When my husband bought this for me as a gift, I wasn't sure what to expect from it. I dived in and figured "Oh, it's just another gang violence series," but when Jiwoon shows feelings for Soohan, I was like, "Wait, what?!" Only then did I turn to the back to find the genre "Boys Love" printed there. I enjoy boys love, but this definitely doesn't have the feeling of a BL such as Love Stage or The World's Greatest First Love. There is some mafia conflict in this first volume, and just enough to keep me wanting to read. One of the few first volumes where I feel like I really need to read the second one to decide whether I want to stay committed to the series or not. Also, the art is fantastic. An overall enjoyable manga.

    Series as a whole: 3 Stars. Rough start that made me put down the series for years, but once I picked it up again and pushed through, it was alright. Didn't dislike it. Entertaining enough while I read it. Short and quick. The characters are drawn so freaking pretty (reason I picked up the series when I eyeballed it on the shelves). I really like the character of Soohan, and Jiwoon is interesting too. Together they make a couple that I ultimately root for, but I didn't care about the whole mafia Series as a whole: 3 Stars.

Together they make a couple that I ultimately root for, but I didn't care about the whole mafia gangster plot. I wasn't even quite sure what was going on with that and I didn't care enough to slow down, reread, and figure it out. There were some messed up things going on too that were uncomfortable, and ultimately it was all about the angst our MCs go through and the smut/romance. --- As for Volume 1 When I first read this 2 years ago, I gave it a 2 stars. I think it might've been the very first yaoi series I picked up, and I didn't get it. I was like "Wtf am I reading?" and thought it was all just weird and boring. Since then, I've become somewhat more familiar with the genre and its tropes, and upon rereading it I bump up the rating to a 2.5 or 3 stars. The story wants to have a romance about 2 guys with some seriously messed up trauma, and it uses this mafia setup as a means to achieve that. The whole mafia thing doesn't work for me. That said, I actually liked Soohan this time around. Got super intrigued by him, and even Jiwoon started growing on me as the volume went on. I liked them enough that I carried on to volume 2.

    I liked this graphic novel boys love story, however it is very slow building. Hopefully this volume is just a long introduction into a great story involving the mafia and two boys who seem to have been hurt in the past by the people around them. Recommend to older teens and adults.
