Positively Yours is a story I’ve been putting off reading. Once I started reading, all I could do was just binge read 50+ chapters in a row.

Positively Yours Summary
To Hee-won’s dismay, the BFF she crushed on and her other BFF are now dating! Seriously bummed, Hee-won decides to go wild just one time, and find solace with a handsome stranger.
A very satisfying one-night affair has now turned into more — she’s pregnant!
Fate brings them together again, and now the regimented Doo-joon is determined to do the right thing and marry her. But they’re basically strangers!
Except… their bodies have been very intimately acquainted.
What’s this mother-to-be to do?MU
Positively Yours starts out a bit cliché, with our female lead, Hee-won having a crush on her childhood friend. However, he soon starts dating their joint friend.
To drown her misery, she goes out to a club and gets a drink. She meets a guy, Doo-joon and one thing leads to another. Eventually she realizes she’s pregnant and goes to get a check-up which makes her meet the one-night stand.
Needless to say, it’s highly unlikely things would be happening like this but it’s still a lot of fun.
Our male lead is quite stoic and cold, but he starts changing for the better. He changes his schedule and starts putting in effort into the female lead.
As for the female lead, she’s still reluctant to let anyone into her life or to ask for support. She rather deal with things on her own, which I’m supporting, too.
The love story is quite sappy, but I’m genuinely loving the moments between our main couple. There’s also several lovey-dovey moments and character building experiences between other couples in the story.
I also quite like the fact that the story isn’t drawing out too much on some of the bad stuff. Things happen, but they’re dealt with accordingly.
The main focus is really the main couple and I appreciate that the focus isn’t shifted too much to other parts. Likewise, it’s still kept fresh and interesting up until 50+ chapters, so that’s nice, too.
One thing I’m a bit upset over is the lack of sonograms or mentions of the baby progression. I would have loved to see a lot of Doo-joon’s reaction to his baby’s progress.
I also love Hee-Won’s passion for her students and how upset she is over things occurring. Even pregnancy hormones are hilarious to watch, including becoming upset for no reason.
The comedy part isn’t “up in your face” either, but sprinkled throughout the story. It’s honestly quite lovely.
Final thoughts: This is a must read story in the slice of life category. It’s a really good story, sprinkled with enough realism and comedy to make it a joy to read.
