All the speaking bubbles in “Matchmaker” almost made me drop the story. I’m glad I didn’t, since it’s actually pretty good.

Summary of Matchmaker
She appears in his dreams every night and suddenly appears in real life! Lamei, a mysterious beauty from China, claims to Hojun that she is the opponent of her fate…
What is her identity? – MU
I quite liked this story. Our main female lead is confident in her affection towards Hojun. She even kisses him! Only for him to vomit. Initially I was almost dropping the story since there’s SO MANY SPEECH BUBBLES!!! It’s honestly ridiculous, half the page was just bubbles.
As soon as I got past the initial shock of this, I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. The art is cute and definitely not something I normally read. I also enjoyed the healthy skepticism the male lead had towards the female lead.
The story seems to have basically happened in the past already. Lamei and Hojun didn’t end up together in their past lives. Instead, he ended up with another woman that brought him to ruin. Something similar almost happened in this life too, but it seems Hojun averted the disaster.
I’m really looking forward to what will happen and if they’ll have their happy ending!
