Lele was born into the fashion industry. Both her parents were models, and they both die in a tragic airplane crash leaving a 5-year-old Lele orphaned. Therefore, it is no surprise that Lele hates the industry, thinking it’s superficial and unnecessary. Raised by her maternal grandmother, Lele reaches seventeen years of age before she is sucked in when her mother’s sister – a fashion model agent and former model, convinces the reluctant Lele to model. Lele had been adverse to the whole idea, until she sees a photo shoot of popular American model Angus Lanson, and she begins to see modeling as an art form.
When I first started to read this Manwha I thought that Lele’s character was quite boring & indecisive however after about 5 chapters I couldn’t put the title down and I ended up reading it up to the latest chapter in 2 days! (That is a lot of reading!) The story is amazing, it has small similarities to Skip Beat but it is also very unique in the way it approaches defining Lele – who becomes such an independent and alluring woman. I can’t wait to read what happens next, this is definitely a new favourite title of mine!
