[A parody of “Warehouse” and “Killing Stalking”]
Buckle up for some mentally traumatizing and tormenting experience. You will feel uncomfortable at times while reading the smuts with its visually disturbing scenarios. And disguised to the point you will feel sick to your stomach.
I find the story premise a little basic and clumsy with a lot of plot twists and unrealistic scenes. It had many plot holes. Despite heavy content matter, the characters lacked depth and needed more personality and had no character development. Many questions went unanswered and it skipped necessary developments which should have been addressed. This Horror BL Manhwa is cringy, creepy, dark, and gritty with hardcore weird stuff yet you just can’t stop reading it.
It started off strong and had a lot of potential but fell short. As the plot was all over the place and was a bit confusing. I would say do give it a try.

Very well constructed work in all aspects, especially in psychological and crime aspects. It got cliffhangers and many unexpected and unpredictable plot twists and turns.
The art is decent but the heavenly smut is intriguingly dirty. The art style lends so much power to support the personalities and behaviour of the characters.

It’s Dark, Deep, Heavy, Scary and Informative and will keep you on your toes. All in all, an underrated yet great psychologically twisted read with romance. Re-read worthy twisted yet beautiful in its own way Horror BL Manhwa.

But he wakes up trapped inside a game along with other players who were sent to the same hospital, including a doctor and a serial killer on loose….

Based on a novel. This horror BL manhwa got a decent art with a generous dollop of mystery concept. BL element is minimal and it has more adventure, angst and survival elements. Also, it has a slow burn realistic romance. If you are eager to know ahead of the webtoon story, I would suggest reading the web novel which has multiple volumes. The novel has a great detailed world-building which deepens later with good characterization with considerable development.

- Genre: Adult, Drama, Horror, Mature, Mystery, Psychological, Smut, Tragedy, Yaoi
- Status: Completed, 67 Chapters
- Creator: Koogi
Here comes the top Horror BL Manhwa!!
Huge Trigger Warning: Strong depiction of rape, abuse, murder, trauma, self-harm, kidnapping, torture, an extreme case of Stockholm syndrome, gore, nudity, paedophilia, homophobia, mental illness, suicide, BPD, incest, etc and most of these are incorporated explicitly
Yoon Bum is a scrawny antisocial guy with serious attachment issues and was neglected and heavily abused his whole life.
He found solace in stalking his classmate: Oh Sangwoo, a popular, considerate, friendly, and charismatic extrovert. Yoonbum’s strong attraction and obsession take a distorted form of stalking when one afternoon he tried to snuck/break into his house. But it turned out to be the biggest mistake of his life when he makes a gruesome discovery inside Sangwoo’s basement… There’s more to Sangwoo than meets the eye. Bum cannot escape this deep dark nightmare anymore amidst the emotional storm.
One of the best psychologically mind-twisting horror thrillers. The story tells how irreversible trauma and abuse shapes and affects a person for the rest of their life.
An unsettling, enthralling and well-structured plot with growing tension and anticipation along with a scary tone in the background. Character-driven story with storytelling and foreshadowing. Avoids cliches with unexpected plot twists and a tense pace. Bizarrely disturbing scenes delving deep into the darkest drop of human insanity.
Well fleshed out complex, layered and heavy characters. Sangwoo is a charming manipulative and narcissistic deranged psychopath. These morally repulsive characters will make you question your morals.
Relationship of two mentally unstable, broken, scarred and severely traumatized characters. Extreme tragic backstories and flashbacks. Horrible toxic co-dependence.
The art style perfectly fits the story. It has visually stunning panels helping you feel the terror while evoking emotions through a fitting colour palette. Sex scenes are disgustingly well drawn. The spiciness is real.
Final Verdict: It has more of a BXB relationship than a romance or yaoi. It didn’t romanticise their relationship or Stockholm syndrome. This is no cotton candy. A terrifying suspenseful horror classic and the most disturbing masterpiece. Overall, a disturbingly beautiful manhwa.
