I never knew I needed “Act Like You Love Me!” until this morning. It’s starting out strong and had me giggling like crazy.
“25-year-old Ji-eon is stressed, overworked, and penniless.
When a mix-up at a temp job has her spending a day as famous actor Doyun Nam’s personal assistant, she takes her anger out on a doll… which turns out to have the magical ability to control him at her every whim.
Now it’s her turn to be the boss”. – Webtoons
The art is absolutely gorgeous and I was instantly drawn to it. Our main leads are looking very good both separate but also apart.
Ji-eon seems to be a good person, working as hard as she possibly can to send money to someone – her mother. I just hope she’s not being used by her mother in this case. I know the feeling of wanting to do your best for your mom and helping them in any way possible.
As for Doyun Nam, I must say I’m quite intrigued by his anxiety issues regarding big crowds. It can’t be easy having a job where you need to be in the spotlight.
He does seem slightly like an arse sometimes, though. But overall, he doesn’t seem to be mean just… having a difficult personality(?).
The story would have been great even without the plushie Ji-eon receives from a customer who doesn’t want to pay, but it’s adding quite a bit of enjoyment with it.
As you can guess from the title, the plushie allows Ji-eon to control Doyun Nam. Initially it’s by accident, like him bowing down outside her door and apologizing – almost even licking her feet…
There’s way more going to happen, but I won’t spoil it here! I have a feeling she’s going to use it for more nefarious purposes, though.
Final thoughts: I’m really eagerly looking forward to this webtoon’s continuation. It’s hilarious but has the potential to delve into more serious issues.
