Sungjoon’s not doing great, but life is looking up. His job at the convenience store pays enough for him to afford his own place. A tiny, smelly, and laughably cheap place, but he loves it. He loves it right up until he walks home and finds it on fire. Unfortunately, things get worse as he realizes he doesn’t know anyone in the city who can help. Wait, no… that’s not right. Actually, he does know Lee Hyo-in. A rich kid from his university who is, coincidentally, looking for a roommate. Well, not a roommate. More of a… dog.
Once upon a time, there lived a boy named Tsunderella who works at a cross-dressing bar owned by his family. Every day, he works so hard despite being mistreated by his step-mother and step-sisters (brothers?). As his birthday nears, his worst fear of working directly with the customers looms. All he ever wanted is to spend his life growing vegetables with his fated person.
Meanwhile, news of the ball reaches Tsunderella’s ears. Will he be able to finally meet his destined partner there?
If someone were to ask me to describe Doukyuusei, I’d tell them that it feels like experiencing a breath of fresh air in the world of boys love. The kind that you’ll never get tired of going back to from time to time.
As written on the cover of the book:
A boy met a boy.
They were in a flush of youth.
They were in love that felt like a dream,
Like a sparkling soda pop.
