A story about a broke college student who is renting a cursed rooftop room!

The story starts out with a short information about the current rent market in Korea, with the rent increasing drastically.

This makes it so our male protagonist, Da Woon, unable to rent any decent places.

He ends up renting one place, after thinking it looks nice with the décor. Turns out it’s a weirdo guy who thinks he lives there, which gives Da Woon a huge surprise.

Even more so when he’s taking away all the interior decorating, leaving the place looking like a mere shell.

The man who is in the apartment mistakes it for his own, despite the fact he’s living in another apartment. It seems this happens a lot, since the landlord knows him.

Needless to say, that guy is weird on a bunch of different levels. I don’t think he’s a bad guy but hardly anyone you initially want dealings with.

It turns out the protagonist is now renting an apartment which is cursed, according to a friend of his. They end up showing him a bunch of newspaper clippings and warning him of 5 black crows.

In the apartment, we even have a tracing of a body, which becomes Da Woon’s buddy of sorts.

During the time he’s renting, he also encounters a former friend of his. However, he doesn’t remember her at all, although she has memories of him.

Needless to say, there’s a lot of comedy in this manhwa with a bunch of interesting things happening. I have yet to read enough to say if I’m loving it, but so far it seems quite interesting.

The other dude we first see is also being involved in the plot, causing tension between Da Woon and his former female friend.

Apparently the weirdo dude photographs an embarrassing scenario, which makes Da Woon accuses the other female friend taking the photo and uploading it on social media.

In other words, we have both misunderstandings and “memory loss”. What else can go wrong in this potential relationship?

Recommendation: Might be worth checking out if you like comedy set in modern times.
