Bound By One’s Heart is seemingly a really interesting story where our male lead is kidnapped. Due to some argument between himself and another business man, he’s being removed from the scene.
The man who kidnaps our main male lead is someone with ties to him. At the start of the story, the two are bloody in a kitchen. After a bit of a scuffle, the male lead almost kills the person who keeps him captive. However, he avoids actually killing him and then collapses in his arms. So romantic, totally.
When he wakes up again, the person who has kept him captive for months is a person he doesn’t recognize. At least in terms of personality and memories, it’s like a different man!
It seems he suffers from memory loss. So our male lead manage escaping after fooling the kidnapper, however… things go awry again. It seems our protagonist isn’t super smart when it comes to his own safety.
You’d imagine he remembers the first time he was kidnapped and not do it again, but nope. A man attacks him again and I didn’t read further than that.
Overall the story seems interesting but the main protagonist is quite stupid. As for the art, it’s pretty good and I see no major issues with it. However, it also features a typical trope when it comes to yaoi stories.
Any yaoi story from China has a much younger/smaller male with lighter hair colour than the “dominant” person in the story. This one is no exception, since the protagonist’s love interest is taller and features darker hair than the protagonist.
Recommendation: It seems like an interesting story, especially if you like shounen ai/yao and crime. Might be worth checking out if you like those type of stories.
