1. [+1,050, -55] This is different from Kian's scandal. The webtoon writer has passed the point of freedom of expression and is straight up writing crime at this point. I don't know what agenda he has against IU but she'd be really hurt to see herself depicted like this. IU fans are already mad over this, he deserves to be sued for it.

2. [+451, -38] What more can you say when even readers of the webtoon are shaking their heads and have given up on him? More than anything, I wonder if IU knows how this writer has portrayed her? Isn't it a crime to not only name a character after her but also draw the same birth mark she has on her face and depict her in such a way? I think she should sue him.

3. [+314, -17] There's a scene where a middle school student gets kidnapped and then r*ped by someone with two genitals that is filmed... How could anyone think that such a webtoon is featured on the main page of a platform as big as Naver?

4. [+320, -79] The hate against Kian is nothing compared to this webtoon. There are so many worse scenes in it... Kian just got all the heat because he's more famous.

5. [+139, -3] What's funny is that ㅋㅋㅋㅋ when readers started criticizing him for the plot and excessive PPL, he dedicated a whole chapter to criticizing his readers. Then when readers pointed out suspicions of tracing and ghostwriting, he ignored all of them. Readers who were paying to read were already tired until he featured a scene where the grandma, who's one of the main characters, has a flashback where she almost gets r*ped, and then back to the present where she's stripped, shaved, tied up, and drugged... Readers finally got fed up at seeing something so vomit-inducing that they finally reported him ㅋㅋ His webtoon seriously needs to be taken off the platform. And this shows just how scary fans can be once they turn against you.

6. [+82, -11] I've been a reader for a while but have finally had enough. Every female character in this is treated like some sex slave where violence is permitted (there's even a character who looks inspired by a real person). To think that such a webtoon is featured on Naver? This isn't even an issue of feminism or gender inequality, anyone with a normal mind should be opposing such a webtoon. There should be a limit to creative expression. This webtoon has crossed that by a long time.

7. [+70, -4] Don't talk if you haven't read the webtoon ㅋㅋㅋ Male readers who have been readers for years and even bought fan merch had enough with the writer and kept reporting him and reporting him only to get ignored. That's when they turned to the feminists for help ㅋㅋㅋ imagine how bad the webtoon is for the male community on DC to ask for feminists for help ㅋㅋ

8. [+51, -6] Freedom of expression does not apply here;;; this has crossed the line to the point of crime. He drew a character that is not only named after IU but also has her same birth mark. Don't dare and deny this. I hope they hurry up and sue him...

9. [+46, -3] Not only is this webtoon grossly misogynistic but he's been accused of tracing IU's image and creating a character named Lee Jigeum that gets r*ped. There's also a character named after BTS' Rap Mon who is a r*pist... what is this webtoon?
