There’s No Use Hanging On seems fairly normal and it’s not starting off interesting for me.

Like normal stories, our female lead is smitten with an @rsehole and he ends up betraying her.

Are we honestly feeling surprised by this? I’m not exactly fazed by the start of the manhwa since we’ve seen this too many times. Literally, it’s always the fake male lead betraying the female lead for their sibling.

Our female lead is naive then she decides to get revenge, great. I’m not exactly surprised by this either and it’s honestly quite a boring start to the manhwa series.

I’m not hating the story but the initial few chapters are just so boring.

We have an annoying cousin who is eager for the empress position and is using her words to nestle her way into the family.

I’m not saying it’s not changing for the better later on, but what I’m reading is just unimaginative and quite boring.

I’m also not liking the hairstyles for the female lead or the art in general. It’s just a bit awkward-looking and I wish more effort was put into the female lead’s hairstyles.

Final thoughts: I’m not hating the story but I’m definitely not going to continue reading this. It’s a bit unimaginative and I’ve seen this too often.
