Though it seems impossible, Suha is happy to work alongside the Director and makes every effort he can to ensure his boss can succeed.

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.

Title: My Demon Cry Baby, Maria



Satoru is in mourning. His unrequited love, Jun Mariya, has passed away before Satoru ever got the chance to talk to him, much less confess to him. In the throes of sorrow, Satoru crumples up and marks all over the love letter he had intended to give to Jun someday before throwing it aside. Then, he lies there, expressing his want to die. Out of nowhere, a voice calls out to him, offering to take his life. It is a fluffy little black smoke cloud, claiming to be a demon, having been summoned from Satoru's inadvertent scribbling of a summoning circle.

Satoru is surprised, of course, but intrigued, as the demon offers him a wish in exchange for his life span, which the demon will steadily feed on for the remainder of Satoru's life. Satoru can only think of one wish: to see Jun. The demon takes this opportunity to lure Satoru even further, suddenly shifting into Jun's exact likeness. Satoru is shocked but is more than happy to make this deal so he can be with Jun. Similarly, the demon is delighted to make such an easy deal.

What the innocent demon doesn't realize is that Satoru has some depraved plans for this demonic lookalike, and he has every intention of acting on them until his dying breath.

Manga Review | Honey Maple More More Sugar by tsushiko

Title: Honey Maple More More Sugar (Renta!) | Honey, Maple, and More Sugar (MangaPlanet / futekiya)



Bee is a bit of a celebrity in the niche crafting community, thanks to his beautiful stuffed creations that he posts online. The online community isn't just for sharing crafted creations but also a place for gay men to meet up and often have cybersex. Bee, aka Tsumugi, takes full advantage of his popularity, posting his creations and then enjoying some sensual time with his fans. While he has his pick of the litter, Tsumugi's preferred partner is also his top fan, Chiitan. Chiitan is always the first to leave comments on any of Bee's posts, and how he dominates in the DMs is right up Tsumugi's alley. If Tsumugi is going to meet with anyone IRL, it's going to be Chiitan.

Chiitan hesitantly agrees, and Tsumugi couldn't be more excited (and nervous). Bee has attempted to meet a couple of people from the community, only to be disappointed as the people end up being creepy or not what Tsumugi expected. Thanks to Chiitan's interactions online, Tsumugi has set himself up to be disappointed once again, imagining a cutesy and soft man. Chiitan ends up being anything but. Chiitan, aka Mikio, is a tall, angry-looking man, more befitting the mafia than a crafting community. Thankfully, he is still attractive, and though Tsumugi is terrified of Mikio, they end up eating together and kissing. Mikio even gives Tsumugi a stuffed animal he made himself named Honey. It's a really nice time overall.

Tsumugi, as much as he loves his interactions with Chiitan, is too nervous to continue with Mikio, but no matter how he tries to find a new cybersex partner, none are like Chiitan. Can Tsumugi see beyond Mikio's tough exterior?
