Soah has regained some of her memories about Mui and Habaek, but she also remembers Habaek reuniting with Nakbin, so she pretends not to know Mui and agrees to marry Dong-young. However, Mui/Habaek can't quite bring himself to stay away, and Tae-eul-jin-in brings things to a head by forcing him to have a flashback to his last days with Nakbin.

That's the best I can do for a description of this volume that doesn't get too spoiler-y and hopefully also makes sense, because dang was this a confusing read. The author continues to mix flashbacks in with the series' present, with no clear indication when the switch happens. The worst moment was when Mui was remembering Nakbin, the big betrayal occurred...and then for some reason Mui was suddenly at Soah's window, coming to take her back to Suguk. Huh? Did he somehow wake up with no memory of what Tae-eul-jin-in did?

I felt like I had to put a ton of effort into keeping the characters and timeline straight. It was exhausting, and I wasn't even very successful. I still don't know who the woman that visited Habaek is (are we supposed to know, or is it really supposed to be a mystery still?), and I have no clue what most of these characters' motivations are. Is Huye loyal to Habaek or not? What's up with Tae-eul-jin-in?

Habaek and Soah seem to exist in the midst of a very slow tornado of things that keep happening to them, neither one of them with much of a choice about any of it. Mystery and intrigue can be a lot of fun, but at this point it seems like that's all this series is, one mystery piled on top of another - after four volumes, I don't have much trust that Mi-Kyung Yun plans to give readers answers anytime soon.

Once again, the artwork is pretty, but the storytelling is painfully confusing. Since it looks like this series was never fully published in English anyway, and since it would take special effort for me to read any further, I'm just going to stop here.

Extras:

A couple pages of full-color artwork, six 4-panel comics featuring the author, a short author afterword, and a page of author notes on the story of Gyeonwu and Jiknyeo (including Gyeonwu's connection to Dong-young, which didn't entirely make sense to me), Mui and Habaek's clothing, and Mura's eyes.

In volume 4 we learn more about Soah and Dong-Young's past and that he's basically always been in love with her from a far. Now that she'd returned home (presumably Earth) he catches at the opportunity to try and marry her and save her rom her abusive father. Before that can happen however, we get more visits from Mui and it becomes clear that although she hasn't really regained her memories, she loves him more than Dong-Young. Mui gives her plenty of chances to say his name, but she never does (although she does remember it... confusingly).

After Soah returns to Suguk all the minor characters want to see her but they're told she needs time alone with Habaek (which is ironic since we hardly ever see Habaek). Also we're finally given the whole story about Nakbin and why it's so hard for Mui to let go of her. ( )

This series is beautifully illustrated with an exceptional attention to detail. The characters are strong and enchanting, while the prose is engaging and not overdone. This is my first experience of Korean Manga and I was not disappointed. ( )
