My Dangerous Childhood Friend

“Let’s make a promise: We’ll take care of each other when we are both over twenty and still single.”

One day, a childhood friend returned and offered Siana a marriage proposal. It was under the excuse of a silly promise of a marriage they had made when they were kids. Even if he was a great guy, he was still her childhood friend!

In a fit of anger, Siana uttered another reason for rejecting him instead of the original one she had planned…

“I… hate rabbits.”
“And how do you know?”
“Know what?”
“That I’m a rabbit or not. And whether I’m right for you or not. We’ve never done it before.”

While she was unable to say a word, Alan called out her name and lowered his head further. His eyes, which curved like two crescent moons, glistened as if he had found something interesting. His face was closer than Siana thought, and his body framing hers was taut.

“I can’t believe you’re rejecting my proposal because you presume to think I finish fast like a rabbit despite not having shared a night with me.”

A large, masculine hand lightly clasped her locks. Her soft, light brown curls caught in his grasp gently fell down the side of her face.

“You’ll give the guy who proposed to you a chance to prove he isn’t a rabbit, right?”

So, as both previous reviewers said there is some question about wether or not the MC is annoying or unlikeable. I'd like to take a moment to explain why there is some question, some spoilers but it's my honest review of the characters so far.

... more>>

Rather than unlikeable, she is just a girl who grew up spoiled. She could be picky and snobbish because she was her dad's little princess. And instead of a typical cinderella story with a terrible stepmother to teach her humility, it is only after losing lavish lifestyle she has to confront reality. It is the kind of personality defect you get from having a happy childhood. She did however grow up and mature in her teen years supposably, but she was still protected from the cruel adult world. And nowadays every MC has a horrifically tragic backstory that shapes them into either an amazing person or a terrible one. She is just a more realistic person tbh. She is prideful and is flawed, which compared to a holy-mother-OP-never-do-wrong-b*tch, it's nice. That said, she is a bit annoying. However! It is an excellent opportunity to character growth as the story progresses.

As of chapter 7, the ML has come swaggering in and seems like the perfect prince charming coming to save the day. I laughed the MC's response that was pretty realistic all things considered. The moment when you meet someone you haven't seen in a long time and they start talking about things you don't remember. Do you laugh along and pretend? Or bum them out by admitting you have no clue what they are talking about? A socially awkward person's dilemma. (She isn't really socially awkward but just super stressed out) You pick option 1 and then get a proposal thrown at you. A complete WTF moment. Any rational person would be confused. After considering it, even if he comes offering to marry you and you don't want to drag him down with your debt so you just try to talk your way out of it. Only to find that he knows waay too much about the situation, to a creepy extent. (This is obviously foreshadowing of the ML's personality but we aren't there quite yet. Stuff to look forward to :D)


Bottom line: It's a good concept. I don't hate the characters and the translation is fabulous. This is the start of what could be an awesome story if it is executed well. And guys, liking a character from the start is a good way to get you hooked, but disliking them and having them grow on you can be amazing. <<less

I can't see where FL is unlikable or s*upid. She actually more realistic and logical type. Obviously in those time women knew nothing ab s*x and how it should be done, no one taught her that, its absurd of how bad education was back then. I found funny that ML as a man knew how it should be done and what it was, but FL as a women had no idea.
And I actually like the ML he's cute and I love how sweet and caring he is!! At first... more>> I was like wtf dude, bc of how he came and said, , marry me and I will pay of your debts" but he didn't meant it that way. And he's so dam sweet then they do it 😫😫😫!! And how he keeps saying how beautiful she is and how much he loves her uhhh😩❤️ And the respect ohhh damm my first time seeing so much respect in Korean novel!!
"Sia, tell me honestly, " he said softly, "If you don't like me, and if I have been forcing you all along. I will leave and never bother you, again. You only have to say it." Uhhh can I have him for myself please🙏
FL is brave and smart, and I read in the comments that her standards are too high??? NOOO NO! Just bc she wants someone handsome and acting not as a pig?? What?? How is that hight standards wtf!! And she is not, , like a princess" if she were she wouldn't know how to wash on her own or dress, she WORKED to help her father!! She got unwanted marriage proposal and thought logically of how to avoid it.
And translation is really good!! <<less

I don't think that the ratings at the moment here on novel updates is giving enough credit for the novel itself and the translator's work. A lot of reviews stating that the MC was unlikeable is completely laughable because when you read it, it's nothing like that at all.

To be honest, I'm kinda hating the algorithm that the characters should be like this and that and all perfect. I mean come on, why are we even reading a novel? A story revolves around the progression, improvement, and development of the... more>> time, setting, and characters. They all have flaws and it is us, the readers, to witness that. I'm not a fan of s*upid, weak, and non-courageous characters, but at some point when you're reading a novel, you have to understand why they are like that in the first place. And how do we do that? We think about their situation, past, and the power they withhold.

Not everyone become smart, wise, strategic and powerful MC overnight because if all of the authors made it that way, it wouldn't probably be believable. In my case, I don't like it when the characters are soo perfect to the point that it's not veritable.

Again, give this a chance. Thanks and have a good day! <<less

I feel like the MC is very realistic for her age and back ground. She's a good blend of s*upid and smart for an intelligent and generally savvy young person, who was also sheltered and loved up until now. She has to quickly outgrow the pampered pickiness of being a true daddy's girl of a wealthy businessman when she finds herself in the deep end as an orphan at 20. Her emotions also ring true-- she is largely burnt out, overwhelmed, and resentful of the horrible, stressful, devastating situation she... more>> has found herself in, and not impressed that her childhood friend is adding additional demands on her in her current situation.

The s*upid:


After her father's unexpected death, a decades-old, "forgotten" bill surfaces. The absurdly high compounding interest has made the initially reasonable bill balloon to many, many times the original sum and the scummy owner of the debt is demanding immediate payment in full, or for the MC to marry him instead. Rather than checking with a lawyer immediately about the legality of the bill, considering it was never brought up for collection before, the interest is absurd, it was made to her father, not her, and she is being blackmailed, she starts selling off everything of value to try to pay. This would essentially financially ruin her and prevent her from ever making a significant amount of money again in her lifetime. It would have been smarter to keep the business and mansion and use them to generate cash to pay off the debt, should she have actually been found liable for it (there's usually a statute of limitations on debts, though, if it was a business debt and she sold the business, whomever purchased the business would likewise have purchased the debt). Still, she is reacting like a typical young person who is under a ton of unrelenting pressure and, while smart in general, is lacking in guidance and good advice at the moment, causing her to believe what this psycho debt collector is telling her.


The smart:


Though she waited until after she sold everything, she does eventually look into some surface level legal options and discovers a law which says she must be permitted a payment plan, which is more than what most heroines in this situation do. When she is unable to find a job to commit to the payment plan, she decides survival over honor, and plans to pay none of the debt, and defect to a nearby country with all of the money she made selling everything off in order to start again. I applaud this choice and think more main characters should take it. This plan will, of course, go pear shaped, but nonetheless, I like her realism.


I agree that the main ML is coming across as a simp. His perception is fairly self-centric, and most of his interaction with the MC is driven by his long-time fantasies about her and their potential relationship. He gets some redemption points by being young, rich, attractive, and completely devoted to the MC, but, at the moment, he is going to need to work at being more than a needy simp who is yet another clingy burden, irritating the MC. I suspect him trying to prove himself and win his unimpressed lady love over will be the majority of the plot.

I like that there is no rebirth/ transmigrating nonsense in the story, and the characters are left to figure things out naturally, sans unneeded power ups or buffs. <<less

DROPPED at ch33, not much happening in the plot, and the translation was the ONLY positive here:
-ML's character is air, FL is an annoying child...
-The writing is so simplistic that there is no weight to it. Any dialogue feels like kindergarten talk.
-The virgin "oH yeSes" while having s*x threw me off. I didn't like the rest of the R18 scenes either, they were extremely dry.
-There are too many contradicting and unlogical parts. I'm not being picky. Sadly this is just bad writing.
1, 3 STARS... more>> because I've surely read some stories worse than this. <<less

i don't really like the character, especially the ml. The ML are a pathetic desperate persistent simp. I don't really feel any charisma on both FL and ml.

spoiler warning: bruh the ML literally say this cheesy line “If you don’t like how I look I can change. I will scar my face if you don’t like it!” idk the character dialouge are just painful to read.

This novel keeps on surprising me as the chapters unfold. Absolute treat! The FL is a good reflection of most modern, independent women. I found her values relevant and logical. She is not overbearing, she is a woman of principles (Yes I'm defending the FL from all the poor reviews). Who wants to be saved by Prince Charming all the time? This novel definitely has its own special spot in the smut/adult genre.

honestly...i hate the ML he’s literally forcing sis into sleeping with him by holding her situation over her head. she’s repeatedly told him no but he keeps pushing to have her. and when they first sleep together she’s drunk and can’t give proper consent I don’t like that. I liked the premise but it could’ve gone a different route where they naturally get closer since he helps her with her situation without making sia feel like she has to sleep with him to receive his help.

People here leaving absurd comments on the FL reading just first few chapters because she has high standards of men and thinks herself to be self-sufficient shows how shallow smut novel audience can be. The latter chapters tells us more about why the FL is like this and why she chose to be live alone than marry early. She is a strong minded individual, realistic and rational, unlike the damsel in distress kind of FL in other novels. She always thinks about solving problems and facing tge situation than shivering... more>> in fear and anxiety while doing nothing. This story is very refreshing and touches very subtle social topics like objectification of women and PTSD that are not properly represented in korean novels. I think it's a good read if the translator keeps up the work till the end. <<less

Honestly the most realistic - as in fitting of that time - novel I’ve read of this genre. I read a ton of historical romance and let me tell you the way she behaves and thinks is completely normal of a high class lady of medieval/regency times. They’re expected to be virgins moreso

Based on the three instalments that I've read so far, Siana is a really unlikeable MC. And yet, I will continue to read because I am hoping to see her grow over time and the work of Keopi Translations is pretty damn good so far. (Good job so far, guys!)

My review after c16


I can't feel chemistry between the leads, it feels too forced (even the smut).

No depth of character in both leads' personality.


... more>>

The reason that she gave him for not wanting to marry him feels kind of s*upid and rushed from the author.

I get that the author wanted to get to the smut quick but this chapter made me lose the interest I had built up on FL's character.

I get that she wanted to overcome the social norms but asking a guy she met after five years, how he performs on bed as an excuse for not marrying him.


The smut parts doesn't really have the feels. It feels too forced. (Not s*x but the relationship).

The story is cute but not much plot. It basically reads like an R18 D*sney princess story, solely revolving around the prince saving the damsel from the main villain. If you like fluff and consensual smut- take a seat. I give it 3 stars because there is really nothing bad about it. It was just mid.

No dub con, No r*pe, No attempted r*pe (from ML or main villain). Kudos to the author for not using these overused tropes.

The rated chapters were pretty vanilla but I prefer a female lead to... more>> be saying “oh, yes" vs one that’s saying "no, stop’’ <<less

It's like a short summer fling, you don't think deep afterwards and just enjoy when its happening (while you read.)

The translation was really very excellent so there was not much to be confused too, and the plot isn't really that heavy to begin with.

Its like a good short read. Nothing much to think about. The characters don't have much depth, the male lead just being a simp. And, the female lead just being all over the place. But, I wouldn't say that the characters were really annoying-level unlikeable. They... more>> were unlikeable to certain extent but that was only because they were kind of too flat and actually seemed like characters and not what I usually search in these letters made stories, real feelings like human. They were just so-so that I ended up reading the whole story without having any other thoughts or theory making pressure on my brain. It doesn't really have much plot, but that also doesn't mean its a complete 'No', it is an okay read. Its a read that is mid. The characters the plot and the general timeline or the progress. There's one villain and there's probably two or three extra characters (significant.) There's smut too and that's also okay-ish.

And, that's pretty much it. It's not super good and its not bad either.

I really would give it another read when I'm up for a short, bored read though. So, do give it a try. <<less

A+ translation! They were both very sweet and respectful to each other, but it got to a point where it felt... kind of boring? Will not be finishing this one, though props to this couple for real for being wholesome to and for each other.

Honestly, I tried to like it but by around the 30 something chapter I wanted to drop it. I stuck 'til the end because I saw there wasn't much until the end.

The translators did an amazing job, I'd say it was the highlight of the novel really.

I understand why reviewers are showing a mixed reception of both leads, and for me I lean more on the negative side. I can see the reasoning as to why they have certain characteristics, but things like the FL apologizing for everything, even up... more>> to the epilogue, frustrates me a lot.

That said, I do like that they both have good communication. At first they don't but with time they learn that they need it so we don't have the typical trope of misunderstandings, at least not for long. As for the plot, there really wasn't much. We got it at the beginning but once the MCs met it was basically forgotten until author had to find a why to end the story and it was retaken. For a second it almost looked like a slice of life.

It's mainly an OK read, but I would rather recommend reading something else. <<less
