I'm sure this novel meant to be a light & cute short story, without much angst. But hey this just piqued my resentment towards malicious reporters. MC sure reach the epitome of being shameless and not in a good way, she has a very thick face and low EQ (I'm very sorry to say). She deceived and manipulated people as she wished and blame the victim if things didn't go her way. She didn't seem to know the words PRIVACY & RESPECT. Even celebrities & singers are privileged and entitled... more>> to have their own privacy. <<less

SOOO SWEET! I felt that the gender roles were slightly reversed though, haha! This book is really refreshing and the female lead is such a genius manipulative female! Her personality is bright and bubbly, but she is courageous.

She loves her angel and doesn't care about being ruthless in order to protect him! AHHHH SO SWEET.

And the male lead is really caring. Cold and distant to the public, but sweet and doting towards the female. *Swoons*

Hahaha! Sorry I just had to laugh. This book is really adorable. A manipulative female lead and a gentle and simple male lead, it is like the roles are reverse. If you ever read some shoujo-like manga/novel, then you know how some male lead can be manipulative while the girl just follow along. But it is reverse in this novel. At times you might hate the female lead's actions, for being ruthless and even betrayal, but she fix that in the end. No one is perfect. She is very clever... more>> and brave, so that is a plus. She will do whatever she can to protect her "Angel". As she is the Witch who protect the Angel. Seriously, this book deserve at least between 4.5-5 stars, it is very good and cute. And just to let you know, the female lead's nasty character is part of the author's character. So don't criticize the female lead too much, Because you are criticizing the author ;) <<less

The plot of this novel is pretty good, the ideas are fresh, the characters very likeable


Midway through the novel, suddenly there is a group of people from a different work!

... more>> Usually, guest appearances are an interesting little addition and may push readers to check out the other work. But this time, these cameos were handled extremely bad!

1 - There weren't many named characters to begin with, but there were so many guest characters that by the end, 1/3 of the named characters were cameos.

2 - The genre of the novel shifted quite a bit with the appearance of these guest characters. Before it was showbiz - love - redemption story, after that it became yakuza - power struggle story.

3 - All of the cameos were named, even though most of them were completely irrelevant to the story and didn't even have any lines before disappearing. (like, literally, we don't need to know the name and appearance of that girl who just stood silently in a hallway without even saying a word - or that a girl who cried twice is a young heir of some rich daddy blahblahblah...)

4 - Some relationships between cameos were glossed over, in an attempt to get people interested in their story, but it only made me irritated - imagine watching a movie, where sometimes an unsuccessful trailer for another movie is inserted.

5 - All of the guest characters had too much presence! It was like: Oh, look, a group of PROTAGONISTS just walked in.

But the most upsetting part is that the story was actually pretty good! Until it went bad for the reasons stated above. It's very upsetting that the author ruined a story with a great potential for the sake of cheap advertising. <<less

A fiesty but still naive female reporter who is slightly obtrusive but well meaning is given to opportunity to meet with a usually private idol, and uses the opportunity to get an exclusive scope, until she realizes that her actions were actually hurtful and betrayed his trust, hence the need to win him back.

It’s not the most unique, nor is it particularly well written – especially with the insertion of characters from the author’s other series at pivotal parts (if you aren’t familiar with them it just seems to segue)... more>> but it is a nice read and a strong female lead with decent character development is hard to come by – especially where egos are somewhat humbled. The male lead doesn’t really have the same growth, mostly innocent with a traumatic past to demonstrate to the readers exactly how hurtful the MC’s actions are. Overall it’s not bad, and reminds me of Roman Holiday at the beginning. <<less
