Title : Brother 弟弟. 
Author: Ren Ti Gu Jia 人體骨架.
Genre : modern urban , romance , drama . psychological
http://bltranslation.blogspot.co.id/2016/01/brother-by-ren-ti-gu-jia.html

Synopsis:

Xu Ping’s brother is a retard.
But this stupid brother only has eyes for his older brother.

———–Comments from the translator—————

Hello lovelies! I’m here to introduce to you another story that I loved personally. It’s about two brothers and their struggles through life. The autistic younger brother and his older brother share a very special bond, and this story goes into great detail about how this came to be, how they dealt with it and how it altered their futures. This story also stands out among BL novels in that it explores China in the 80s in great depth, as our protagonists live through major events in the country at that time.

There will be explicit content between the brothers, so I warn those against incest to stop here and save yourselves the anguish.

I hope this story will also raise more awareness for autism, bullying, and bullying involving autistic children. I study psychology as my major and know quite a bit about autism. I think the story did a decent job portraying an autistic person, but if you are autistic yourself, or know someone close who is, and find this portrayal to be inaccurate, please let me know.

The writer is also a genius to be able to write a love so taboo with the most purest kind of emotion, the love story and emotional turmoil was exceptionally genuine, raw, heart-wrenchingly  beautiful, but then it also have the most sinfully erotic love making scene i’ve ever read without going hardcore (by hardcore i mean bdsm and such) just the dialogue simply sexy

Catching a glimpse of the side character they seems to have different story , i would like to read another story from this author since it was so well written

Without spoiling much if you like to be sucked into a heavy story and have your heart be twisted in pain i  think you’ll love this story

Review manhwa: Momentum by Park Ji Yeon

BL Manhwa fans seems to like Wolf in the house manhwa by the same author

I havent read those instead i read this one first

Momentum

Author: Park Ji Yeon

This manhwa is interesting from the first half already interesting but much simpler, potraying gay relationship through different couple and different circumstances with ‘western’ background, the art also fitted the storyline

But what was really exciting would be the latter half of the series where we dive into the ’50 shades of gray’ side of the stories

It potrays the theuraputic side of bdsm and the conflict bettween sub-dom control relationship and love

I like it and i would like to read more from the next chapters

Review: King’s Maker

I’m back with more recommendation, seems like i have a writing bug, since i keep finding interesting story i want to write about.
Again i would like to recommend to you two very good quality manhwa but since both are near complete and i could write more than usual i’m going to split them into seperate post

First we have

Kings Maker
8e8146473bc4d6edafbb563ed8257ede

Author: KANG Ji Young
Genres: Fantasy , Mystery , Romance , Shounen Ai ,
Summary: Wolfgang Goldenleonard, the 4th Prince of the kingdom, returns to the palace after years of living in hiding. He rejects everything about his new royal life, but is intrigued by the mysterious and dutiful Shin Soohyuk, a catamite of the King. As Wolfgang slowly opens up and learns the ways of the palace, Soohyuk begins to see something special about the wild, unkempt, and stubborn young prince. He might just be the one Soohyuk has been waiting for… the one who could light the flame of rebellion.

King’s Maker is a fantasy kingdom saga, i really lovee to read a good quality kingdom saga since its usually really exciting and i like political intrigue and wit’s battle type of story, with BL story as a plus

I basicly love everything about this manhwa a good plot, very interesting character, and beautiful artwork, and captivating naration, tho the ending felt too soon
However the good news is the author announced at the end of this series that it will have a season 2 as well as a printed version, awwww so exciting. But rumor says that the season two may not be available at Lezhin, which may cause us wont be able to get the copy easily

Manhwa/Manga Recommendation: Saha, December Rain, Given

Hi again,
So today i’m going to list up some of the manga and manhwa i’ve been reading recently. Some of which i think is interesting enough that i would recommend and some other i’m still not really sure but i’ll list it up anyway

Let me start with a manga since the rest of the list would be from manhwa and webtoon category,

Manga Title: Given
Mangaka : Kizu Natsuki

Description

It’s stuck deep inside me and I can’t get it out of my head. Mafuyu’s voice is an insane and dangerous weapon.

That day, I started to feel that playing the guitar and playing basketball, both of which I liked very much previously, was becoming boring.

Uenoyama meets Mafuyu who’s holding onto a broken guitar. The moment Uenoyama finishes fixing the guitar, Mafuyu becomes completely attached to him. However, hearing Mafuyu’s song by chance leaves a deep impression on Uenoyama. An alternative love drawn by Kizu Natsuki!

Now this manga is recommended by a friend of mine and i really really really like it so far. If you know the manga Links, this is also from the same Mangaka, if you havent read Links i would also recommend that Manga. The art is beautiful, the story is slow paced but very engaging. you’ll love or be intrigued by all the character which usually make up for a good story
I learn from a review that the manga currently consist of 3 volumes and most likely will still continue

i found a fanvid in youtube that should be perfect for introduction

Manhwa Title: Saha
Manhwa artist : Lee Uin

Description:
Giju is pretty for a boy; he’s different. That’s why he was called names growing up, why he was adopted by a rich artist couple, why his stepfather couldn’t keep his hands off of him. Broken and lost, all Giju wants is to lead a quiet life. The last thing he needs is to get involved with a gangster. But there’s more to Young-do the gangster than meets the eye; he’s different, too. Though he may have tattoos inked all over his body, an imposing build, and a foul mouth, he’s a romantic at heart—he only joined a gang because of his first love. Set in Saha, a conservative seaside town in southern Korea, this is a poetic tale of two souls in search of their place in the world.

This manhwa is very very well writen, as if i’m reading a novel the scenes was very poetic, from the start i know i’m going to be loving it
Also love the character design of the main couple , a brute bara/bear-ish gangster guy with melancholic heart, and pretty guy which have went trough child abuse and come out as a fighter

DOg7DJ6VwAA_nSg

Manhwa Title: BJ Alex

20180108_201728-21977576981

Every night at 10, Dong-gyun locks himself up in his room, grabs a box of tissues, and watches a live cam boy show hosted by Alex, a BJ (broadcast jockey). Timid Dong-gyun admires not only Alex’s ripped body, but his candor in sharing his sexual experiences with viewers. One night, Dong-gyun downs too many drinks at a school networking event and passes out. When he wakes up, he’s in bed staring up at a shirtless hunk. A hunk who looks an awful lot like…Alex.

Well this manga is well defined as SMUT so its most likely entertaining for some jerk off material LOL. Still to early to decide whether the whole manhwa is going to be good or be a train wrecked, but i dont have too much high expectation to begin
Alex character is a jerk for now, but he is HOT so yeah lets feast on that.

Recommendation : Uncomfortable Truth, Sugar Daddy, Escape into oblivion and Be gay for 30 day

Today i would like to review and recommend 3 manhwa and 1 novel that i’m currently following, they are not exactly very fresh but i’m currently really drawn to these stories

Yoseob, normally very quiet and composed, is in the police station convicted of stabbing 8 civilians with a knife. Everyone’s wondering whether he actually committed the crime. Does he, a mere high-schooler, really have any reason to have done such a horrifying act?Does his obsessive love for his older brother, Jaeha, have something to do with it?

Comment : Loveable character, interesting storyline, cuteness and angst

Summary:
He is someone who would reply to every one of Qing Kong's Weibo status updates, as well as sit in front of his laptop waiting in the Qing Kong channel with other people to listen to every one of Qing Kong's songs at the fan gathering time, he would listen to every audio drama that Qing Kong participated in and then he would write a very long review under the audio drama post. 

He may do all of that but he would never knock on the other man's door to say: "Hi, Qing Kong-sama, I'm your number one die-hard fan!"
