Love is an Illusion! Vol. 1
About this deal
From a family who are mostly composed of Alphas yet Dojin disagrees with the assessment that such a family is incredible because of that. He is also the lead singer in a band named "Distortion" which is his current occupation. Attending a friend's party he would later contemplate this as a bad choice because Omegas were also invited to that party. Dojin saw his friend, the one who hosted the party, debating with Hye-sung that he looked like an Omega. He thought that his friend was pathetic for being unable to differentiate pheromones like he can. Dojin later came across Hye-sung in the comfort room and he smelled him. Disgusted, Park released his own pheromones to counteract Hye-sung's. Dojin does not feel what he sees as a heat cycle and adds what Hye-sung is experiencing is his problem. Nevertheless, he pulls Hye-sung away when he is approaching other guests and takes him home out of concern to rest. The next day Dojin thought he will never see Hye-sung again after walking out from him that morning. At a concert where Dojin performs, he finds and asks Hye-sung why he walked out on the person who offered him kindness. He is currently 27 years old . He was born on November 2 . Height: 185cm. Weight: roughly 81kg. Zodiac Sign: Scorpio It was marked with sexual abuse. I knew what I was getting in to. I had hopes that maybe, possibly it would be mild to the point where I could ignore it, but unltimately I ended up extremely frustrated. When it was in the begining I understood. Omegas and Alphas have heats and ruts and pheremones and all that shit is crazy and confusing, I understand that some mistakes are made, and because it's fiction, I can sort of kind of let it slide... but then it continued and I became more and more frustrated. It felt like the MC alpha didn't learn something that's so simple a child could understand it!!!
I'll start this off by saying, I really did enjoy this manhua a lot. It's story was interesting to me, and despite one of the MCs being a rather bratty character, somehow I still enjoyed him, even if he was occassionally frustrating, because it was something DIFFERENT fromt he stereotype of an omega. Now for the most important thing I have to say about this: A rare type of alphas. They are hyper-masculine and have a demanding nature with traits that make them so productive which shows how outgoing and enterprising they can be.If your partner is saying: "Wait!" you wait. If they say "Stop!" you stop. If they say "I don't want this!" STOP!!!!!!! Honestly. Hyesung is WAY too annoying. I stopped reading this because of his personality. It's so annoying! Like HONESTLY! So Dojin is trying his best to make Hyesung happy but Hyesung was just being rude and all that. I mean it started since the 10th chapter or something like that. '
Hye-sung spent his entire life believing he was an Alpha, the top of the genetic lottery. But his world is flipped upside down when he finds out he isn’t a proud Alpha, but a lowly Omega. After this revelation, he continuously crosses paths with Dojin, an Alpha who can’t stand Omegas. When their physical union results in a life-changing event, the two men's hot-and-cold relationship is put to the ultimate testTheir beauty and talent is a given. Extremely rare, even more than DA. They control completely their omega pheromones outside heat period.
So that's that. A review and a rant about this manhua. I would recommend it to people who don't have a problem with the dubious consent/sexual assult aspects and can over look it for the otherwise cuteness and interesting storyline. I would not be this frustrated about this one little detail if it weren't for the fact that I seriously loved EVERY OTHER ASPECT OF THIS MANHUA. Everything else I loved. I enjoyed the characters, the world building, the story lines to an extent. I just feel like if at least the mistakes of the main alpha stayed in the beginning of the story, I could get over it, but when he repeated the same mistake he had already made I lost faith in him as a character and felt so increadibly let down. Dojin can sense the presence of an omega at a rooftop party that he attends with Heesoo. He overhears Hye-sung state he is an Alpha before it is suggested he go and talk to Dojin. Hye-sung walks away and is on his phone, having the intent to find a rich Omega, he is not concerned about being fired again and will prove the other speaker wrong that he cannot find someone.
After leaving the next morning, Kyungsoo would take Hye-sung with him to a concert where he would find Dojin performing, who is startled to see Hye-sung in the audience. Approaching him with a face mask on, he is berated for how Hye-sung felt he was treated. Dojin joins his family who discusses the genetic make-up of their generation, and Dojin denies that he is meeting up with an Omega. Usually, it is determined by the age of twelve to fourteen whether or not someone is an Alpha or Omega. An Omega and Alpha cannot be distinguished that easily. It is generally decided by inheritance that someone becomes an Omega and they need to suppress their heat cycles by taking medicine.
