I like how you're not afraid to be blunt about how you feel about Seungbae. I'm sick of people being like "don't be harsh on him, he's trying his best and he's a good guy uwu" No thanks. All I care about is Sangwoo and Bum and their relationship. I'm not gonna pretend to care about Seungbae "doing the right thing" just because the morality police in the fandom tells me I should. If Seungbae takes Bum away from Sangwoo the comic would get boring anyway.
I’m always blunt and let me tell you… people don’t like me x’DWell honestly I think it’s true that we shouldn’t be so harsh on him because none of the characters in this comic are saints or perfect. They’re all flawed. But I think everyone should stop looking for ‘a good guy’ and ‘a bad guy’! They’re all just ‘doing things’ and they all have their reasons and they’re all doing those things wrong. None of them are TRYING to be ‘bad’.
I think the biggest mistake some people make is that they won’t stop comparing the characters. Imagine Seungbae in a romance or drama, without Sangwoo around. How creepy would he be? Stalking people he suspects obsessively, breaking into their house and so on. But now, because a serial killer is in this story, ‘he’s a saint’. I think if everyone try to look at the characters individually, you’ll stop defending them or taking their side or making excuses for them. They’re all flawed and make wrong decisions. It’s ok to like or dislike any of them. So I hope people stop wanting everyone to have the same opinion as them.
As for the plot, as you can see, everyone can easily accept that Seungbae COULD die and it’s not going to affect the plot that much. But like @nearina mentioned in one of their posts, Sangwoo and Bum’s relationship is like the ‘backbone’ of the story! This story started with Yoonbum’s feelings for Sangwoo and it has been about their relationship all along so I’m not sure what would be left of the story if they’re separated. ‘fun adventures of the police officer and the recovered man’? lol
