U Don't Know Me #bookreview #mustread #yaoi #rakun

Everyone once in a while, I throw caution into the wind and purchase a book based solely on the cover. In this case, I made a superb choice with Korean manga U Don’t Know Me, story and art by Rakun (Na Yeri).
To be honest, I’m long over the “school life” yaoi. Ninety percent have a predictable plot, a blubbering, feeble uke that looks more like a girl than a guy, and an over-the-top bully seme. Rape isn’t love no matter how you slice it. And not every teenager screws his or her teacher or vica versa, nor would they want to. I realize this is all just a flight of imagination, but honestly, it’s been done so many times, I can’t count that high. I guarantee there are only a handful of “school life” mangas that are actually worth reading regardless of the genre, and U Don’t Know Me is one of those precious few.
Even though the characters are teenagers and there is some reference to their school lives this yaoi focuses more on the story, the ups and downs of Seyun and Yoojin’s personal relationship; how it began and where it’s going, and how friends and family tie in. What I also found unique about this story is that Yoojin’s parents accept their gay relationship and try to encourage and help the young men. It’s rare to see that kind of involvement from parental figures in any yaoi. Most are simply non-existent, dead, or have lousy parenting skills.

BCB:
Seyun and Yoojin have been best of friends ever since they were children. One day. Seyon’s family moves away and the boys vow to remain friends no matter what. Now years later, they attend separate high schools.
Seyun has grown into an aloof and mysterious teen while Yoojin has become a star athlete on the judo team. Through thick and thin their friendship endured, but now something new threatens their bond. Seyun has developed feelings for Yoojin, feelings that go beyond friendship. And their lives and personalities couldn’t be more opposite.
Little do they know that even though you know someone your entire life they can still manage to hide dark secrets in their closets, secrets that can twist a knife into your heart.

Emotionally charged dialogue, detailed plot development, three-dimensional characters, and beautiful art are what makes this yaoi wonderful. The story of Seyun and Yoojin’s realization of mutual love and coming to terms with each other’s strong personalities is what make this a mature romance worth reading. U Don’t Know Me has everything a yaoi enthusiast could want and, more. I purchased my English translated copy from Amazon. 5.5 Stars!

Happy Yaoi Hunting!
