My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rebel Seoul is a dystopian YA set among students at a state military academy. I loved the Old Seoul/Neo Seoul dual cities. The protagonist, Lee Jaewon, starts off emotionally repressed. Crazy sh*t happens and he just kinda goes along with it. But that makes his eventual breakdown and unraveling even more poignant.

Even for the genre, the level of belief-stretching insane events in the plot is…next level. Once I got over my disbelief and just went along for the ride, it was pretty fun.
