Summary: “I’m pretty sure that the downfall of humans can be completely attributed to their curiosity”, such is Ewon Jung’s philosophy.
Because of his curiosity and his “affectionate nature”, Ewon somehow finds himself, after cheating one time too many on Jiho, dumped and threatened into working as a caretaker for Jiho’s new boyfriend, Mookyul… who just so happens to be a Mafia Boss.
And it is just the beginning of Ewon’s troubles.
Between Jiho, who still burns at Ewon’s infidelity, and Mookyul, gang-leader with movie star good looks who starts to take a keen interest in him, Ewon slowly gets entangled in a net more intricate than that of the dangerous underworld, how will he survive it?

Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the manga.
Totally Captivated is quite the roller coaster of emotions and drama and everything else in between. It’s quite mature, in that the situations the characters are very dramatic and serious (albeit dramatic), yet some of these strange people are oddly relatable. They’re flawed–incredibly flawed–but that’s what makes them so relatable. We’ve all probably dealt with heartache, we’ve all probably made stupid decisions that would piss off any reasonable person, we’ve all hurt others whether intentionally or not. I think these are the types of themes that come out strong in Totally Captivated. The main pairing, Mookyul and Ewon, can’t seem to stop making mistakes, which ultimately spirals into more drama and more arguments and more dramatic issues. I keep talking about the drama in this series, but there’s also a lot of humor and romance (an aggressive sort of romance however) to counterbalance some of that. Admittedly this manga did get a bit rough when looking at the way Mookyul treats Ewon, but overall it’s an incredible story with fun and relatable characters that everyone should read!
