the moment a fox becomes a wolf

Genres: Drama, Romance, Gender Bender, Shoujo, Comedy, Action, Manhwa

Status: finished


Gook Eun-Song is your average high school girl… that is until her attractive younger sister steals the man she had a crush on. Depressed, Eun-Song purchased a bottle of alcohol and crawled into a supposedly cursed closet in her father’s furniture store. Yu Ha is your average typical bad boy. He even broke traffic regulations just to end up being chased by a couple of police officers.

Oddly enough, he also ended up in the same closet where Eun-Song is asleep from drinking too much. Yu Ha ends up sleeping in the cursed closet with Eun-Song by his side… just to find out the next day, their bodies have been *gasp* switched!

Can anything else possibly go wrong for our poor heroine? (source: RC-SCANS)

First of all, I did claim in my “manga countdown rules” post that my top 30 won’t contain anything related to shoujo. What can I say …  I lied  😀

I would like to make a few defenses for this manhwa:

fox becomes wolf 2

  1. I don’t usually read any gender bender work, I really don’t. However, this work isn’t strictly classified as gender-bender since the main characters possess the one another’ body, or known as soul swapping (unlike numerous manga where a boy dresses up as a girl). Furthermore, this is a pure romance story, containing no “extra” stuff.
  2. This is definitely not a typical shoujo plot that bores male audience to death. I guarantee that both male and female readers can find satisfaction in reading this.
  3. Once conditions 1 & 2 are satisfied, the Korean-drama-fever just grabs one’s emotions once in a while (even for a male) !
  4. There are only 46 chapters to this romance story. It is neither repetitive, nor does the story feel rushed.

~Note about author: Hwang Mi Ri isn’t a person. It’s a pseudonym created to published numerous Korean Shoujo works under one name
