From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up–Elle, a Korean immigrant in Britain, is a struggling screenwriter; her only pleasure in life is the gorgeous house in which she lives and works. Ryder, one of England's biggest celebrity sex symbols, finds himself subject to a rumor that he is gay, which is tarnishing his image as a ladies' man. To escape from the gossip, he decides to buy a country home, and, as it turns out, it's Elle's, sold without her knowledge. After they "meet"–actually Ryder accidentally hits her with his sports car and puts her in the hospital–she decides to use her injured-victim status to get the house back. After several attempts at blackmail and begging, Elle desperately suggests to Ryder that they marry so that she can stay. Of course, they are under the illusion that they hate one another, while all but the most naive of readers will be able to see the sparks flying. The first of a 15-volume set, this manhwa is as frothy as any paperback romance. It was written in the early 1990s, but with the exception of some dated fashions (vests, shoulder pads, miniskirts), the stereotypical story remains timeless. The art, like the plot, isn't especially distinctive, but somewhat light and airy–even the cover is rendered in pale pastels. A pleasant romantic diversion.–Jamie Watson, Harford County Public Library, MD

From Publishers Weekly:

Romantic comedies fueled by "will they/won't they" tension are nothing new, but the genre gets a fresh going over in this amusing manhwa. A young Korean woman named Elle resides in a palatial house in London, bequeathed to her by her beloved father. For reasons that are never quite explained, the house is somehow acquired by young British actor Ryder Baye, who intends to hide out there until tabloid rumors of his alleged homosexuality blow over. With Elle unceremoniously chucked out into the street, the scene is set for fireworks. The tension increases when Elle and Ryder have their "meet cute": Ryder runs over Elle's foot in his convertible, causing her to lose the screenplay she's writing to raise money to buy back the house. While Elle is furious, Ryder thinks she's another one of the stalker fans he's trying to avoid. Eventually, the two agree to share the house, and, of course, plenty of love/hate antics ensue. Although the plot is typical of the romance genre, Soo's artwork is full of atmospheric detail, and the script makes the characters quite likable. Further volumes will stretch out the romantic tension, but it's all for a good cause.
