Oath to Love and Passion 1
Story and Art by Sook Ji Hwang
A hilariously mean-spirited romantic comedy! When love comes to town, the lives of four teens are turned upside down when rotating attractions, comedic misunderstandings, and general chaos force them to reconsider everything they’ve ever known about relationships, trust, and the frailties of the human heart. Fortunately, none of them knew very much in the first place.
