Another good short story. I'm not usually into break-up get back together stories cause in life it rarely works but in this case the break up was all about extenuating circumstances.

This is a character driven story so whether you like the MC and ML will make or break the story for you. It definitely has a touch of angst to it but there is a lot of sweetness too.

I agree with the story that the five year break was needed for both characters to grow and for the MC to... more>> have a chance to develop to the point where he could move beyond guilt and penitence.

This is a small story. There are no big events except in flashbacks but it shows how little events can evoke big emotions. You are really happy to see this couple get together with a fresh chance, free of the past at the end.

Enjoy! <<less

Same author as Mist, so I was baited by the potential writing.

I’m not a fan of angst but I will persevere to get my HE even if it kills me in the end. It’s quite a novel story, reminding me that in some instances only time is the right solution. Not every relationship can rely on pure perseverance & communication. Sometimes, it’s time apart & independent maturing that’s needed. It’s a pretty touching story; the flashbacks caught me off-guard on occasion just because they were randomly strewn. It was easy... more>> to set past & present apart though. Overall, a very worthwhile quick read to get into if you’re looking for something to pass the time before bed. <<less

Finished and it wasn't hard to MTL but I'll be re-reading it again with the official translations! I thoroughly enjoyed the short, sweet ride. My new guilty pleasure is definitely lovers reunited haha! The MC and ML are both very likeable and glad they were able to get their happy ending.

This is one of the best short story novel I have read so far. I really like the MC and Ml, both are

very well written characters. Although it is a short story it is pack with emotions. I binge read this in one night.


the Mc's love for the ML is genuine but his love was overtaken by guilt, but he soon able to overcome his guilt and was able to confess to the ml


    1. Spoiler

      the ML had an accident when he was young causing him to be half blind (only his right eye)

Some review said that they can't feel the Mls love, like what?!. Maybe they should read the story again, maybe they will understand the Mls emotions and his actions.


the ML despite being dump by the MC still didn't gave up on him and waited for him to return, for five years.


Im usually lazy to right a review for a novel that I liked but I really want people to discover this amazing work

Im really glad that I trusted the ratings. This really did not disappoint me, would totally recommend this to you all.

English is my second language so please don't mind if I write something incorrectly

The thing about being separated for so long and reuniting again that disturbs me is the fact that life still continued even though the both were no longer part of the other life, the key of the plot was good and creative but I didn't feel the ML love at allllll like not even a tiny bit it felt like it was so forced unlike the MC, I don't think it's bc of the novel being the MC pov bc I've read so many with the MC pov and managed... more>> to feel the love from both parties he just was way too prideful and thrown all the guilt and fault at the MC like the relationship wasn't something that two ppl shared, but the part that annoyed me the most was the ML playing self righteous queen and it ruined the thing for me <<less

This story was very special to me. Even though I didn’t enjoy it as much, the writing was really beautiful. The MC dealing with so much guilt made me relate to him in a way that I couldn’t relate to any other characters. His actions and feelings should be treated with more respect because it takes some guts to make things right. To be honest, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the ML or the CP. I know the ML still had feelings but I really wished he fought harder... more>> for the MC in more ways than being secretive and hiding how he truly felt. Though the MC needed more growth independently for a more mature relationship. I learned a few lessons from this novel so I’m very grateful to have found it. <<less

It’s really good, the suspense and some angst here and there made me feel like I’m hanging at the edge.

This is about ex-lovers reuniting and working their way to getting back together by resolving their past issues.

Wish there were more extras tho!

Cute, short, and bittersweet.

HE with a healthy dash of angst, but not dogblood.

Great way to spend an afternoon.

plot wise 4/5

enjoyment 5/5

was looking for something with a mix of fluff & angst and was pleasantly surprised when I found it.

i like the MC and ML a lot! Their reactions are all reasonable and the PINNING from both sides. It's quite short w some flashbacks. A simple, easy read. It's much more slice of life so if you're looking for something more fast paced and intense I would like elsewhere.

This is a very beautiful story and I love how Shu Jin changed and grew during those years. Not to mention, ML was very good and relatable, his emotions were very understandable.

Just like the author said, it's a story about two people that love each other. A very amazing story to that

A mild short melodrama that left a little warmth in my soul. It's an easy read but the writting is well with good translation so I recommend you to give it a try.

Yes, there's a conflict that caused them to broke up (not a spoiler since the story started with them already separated) and of course prober discussion resolved the situation. However, the way the MC and ML carried out their actions and reactions were appropriate. Any instances of dramatism felt realistic because I've seen real-life peaple behave in such... more>> ways. Also, since this is a short novel, there weren't chances for the author to consistantly bring out major conflicts (which is usually when I start to think that "this will only occurs in stories").

Take this as a slice-of-life short novel. You have 2 boys growing up, learning to love, learning how to deal with taking responsibilities, and learning to amend their regrets. <<less

Have got to be one of the best short stories I have ever read and the author writes mist too so no surprise there tbh. I love the character development that we got to see from the MC and at the same time the originality of the ML and him staying true to it. One review mentioned them disliking the ML but tbh I couldn't disagree more.

The MC act like he knows what's best for the ML and it reminds me a lot of those stories where the MC breaks up with the ML BCS of guilt which ended up making the ML worse than before.

Would love to see more of the MC's mother as she seems to only be mentioned a couple of times. Other than that, a great read with sufficient angst and a happy ending.

What happens when you run into your ex again five years after a bad breakup? This one gives you flashbacks to find out how they met, started dating, etc. I also like that the ML has a blind eye. It plays a big part in the story. From the author of Mist.
