One of the main criticisms of the manga is its lack of believability. Jihoon seems straight at the beginning of the manga – or at least, not interested in romance or partnership.Also, the way Yoojin and Yohan have sex with Jihoon gives the impression that predatory and manipulative, Any potential for a healthy romantic dynamic is glossed over.

The bad relationship between Yoojin and Yohan adds to the overall negative tone of the story. Their constant feuding and rivalry over Jihoon created a hostile environment devoid of any semblance of genuine and loving connection. I think they’re going for a polyamorous angle, but it’s still poorly executed and fails to portray the development of a healthy and consensual relationship.

On the plus side, however, “Turn Off the Camera!” boasts a visually appealing art style, showcasing beautiful and well-drawn illustrations. Attention to detail and quality artwork enhance the reading experience, allowing readers to appreciate the aesthetic aspects of the manga.

While the idea is unique—a love triangle that works in favor of the main characters, so they have some kind of incentive to keep it going—it’s crucial to approach the series with caution due to its sexually explicit content and mature themes.

Overall, the series ended up being just another weird, toxic, sex-filled comic. Now, if you liked these weird, toxic love triangle comics, you might like this one! It is highly rated on Lezhen. I myself can’t avoid enjoying some silly, dark and toxic relationships; this one just happens to be one of my misses.


Conclusion: creepy.
