Lady Beast [1st Impression]

Lady Beast is a manhwa series where our main characters switch bodies. It seems to be slightly less dark than What It Means To Be You.

Lady Beast is quite a cute story, with two main characters who are polar opposites.

Both have tragic backstories, with varying intensity of sadness and abuse.

Ginger’s parents fought and ends up dying together, due to the mother grabbing onto her husband and falling to their deaths. So yes, the story is having some dark moments. However, it’s not as bad as “What It Means to be You”, where Violet attempts to kill herself multiple times.

As for Elisa, her father is a jerk and ends up in the clutches of a horrid woman.

In order to escape her less-than-ideal life, she agrees to marry the Duke. However, one day they end up switching bodies for no good reason.

I don’t mind the plot, but it’s definitely a bit cliché so far.

Our female lead is timid and quiet, almost apologizing for her existence. Sometimes it’s quite cute, such as when Ginger complains about period.

It’s definitely an eye-opening experience regarding their opposite lives.

It doesn’t seem like Ginger is an @sshole, he’s just too busy working to care about his wife initially. It does seem like he warms up to her, though.

Their relationship does seem quite cute, honestly. As for the family of Elisa, they’re all just trash.

Final thoughts: The story is quite cute and adorable, but I don’t sense too much “dark” plot points. It’s all kept at a quite child-safe level.
