Manhwa Review | My Suha by Chahyun

Title: My Suha



As his name “Suha” suggests, Lee Suha is a phenomenal secretary for the talented and dependable Director Park Jiwoon. Unfortunately, no matter how good Director Park is at his job, his role within the family that runs the company prevents him from obtaining the accolades and positions he should. Suha knows just how hard it would be for his boss to fight his way up, having been raised alongside the Director as a family friend. Though it seems impossible, Suha is happy to work alongside the Director and makes every effort he can to ensure his boss can succeed.

When Suha isn't working, though, he's on the hunt for sex partners. Due in part to a toxic sexual relationship he had when he was younger, Suha is wary about getting into anything serious. However, finding new casual partners to meet his needs becomes more challenging over time. One night, while out on the prowl in a gay , Suha ends up with another disappointing hookup in the men's bathroom. Ready to leave and call the night a wash, he bumps into someone he never expected: Director Park.

With their secret night lives exposed, Director Park opens up to his most trusted secretary, suggesting that they should fulfill their needs with each other. Suha has always thought Director Park was attractive, and this offer is almost too good to pass up. But Suha knows mixing business and pleasure isn't the best idea. Can Suha control his urgers? Or will lust and curiosity get the better of him? And if it does, what does that mean for his job and relationship with Director Park?

Manhwa Review | Don’t Get Me Wrong, Boss! by Limeho

Title: Don't Get Me Wrong, Boss!



Lim Iro has no drive or intention of getting a “real” job. As an erotic BL writer, Iro has the flexibility to live the way he likes, with no one telling him what he can and can't do. He's also pretty successful at it. But the arts are inconsistent, and his career is no exception. Money is tight, and there are times when Iro would love the stability of a conventional career. But that's not enough to push him into applying for one. What is enough is his parents' neverending insistence that he look for a job. While he's planning on applying, he has no intention of putting in much effort. Just enough to get his parents off his back.

Unbeknownst to Iro, he mistakenly attaches an excerpt of his latest work to his application for Beus, a drink company. One would assume this would knock him out of the running, which wouldn't be a massive loss to Iro. But despite his best efforts at lack of effort, Iro gets a call to come in for an interview. Shocked, he does show up, but in casual clothes among many suited-up applicants. Ho-ryung, the CEO, through the group interview, seems to toy with Iro, dropping hints regarding the excerpt, but all Iro cares about is getting out of there and going back home.

Unfortunately, despite his best efforts, Iro gets the job. The reason Iro got the job was because his application, and subsequently his BL novel, got into the hands of CEO Baek Ho-ryung. Ho-ryung would probably never have hired Iro despite his laissez-faire attitude. But upon seeing the love letter, not realizing it's fiction, he assumes it's Iro's love letter, bemoaning a breakup between Iro and his lover. Ho-ryung is curious about how someone could love like that and is determined to meet this romantic up close and personal.
