Is there Romance in Unholy Blood? Hayan x Euntae – their first interactions
In the first chapter, Euntae saves Hayan from some thugs in the neighborhood. Hayan thanks him and he asks her how he can get to the nearest police station. The hilarious thing is: Hayan had a plastic bag around her head to not reveal herself in front of the thugs. Euntae doesn’t mind.
The next day he invites her to lunch. He obviously has a hunch that Hayan is a vampire and keeps pushing her. Hayan tries hiding her secret but ends up barfing out her meal afterward. After Hayan gets her revenge on her first target she is surrounded by policemen – including Euntae. The moment he sees who stands in front of him he tells Hayan to hit him and run away. After that, they meet up at night and decide to partner up in order to kill all vampires.
When Hayan asks him why he helped her, Euntae answers: “I refuse to believe that anyone who likes sticky rice bread could be a bad person”. That’s exactly like him. He always diffuses hard questions in that manner. At the end of the chapter Euntae invites Hayan to live with him.
Hayan x Euntae: All the romantic moments in Unholy Blood
Is there romance in Unholy Blood? After reading this overview, you will definitely know. They have lots of moments where they build trust and their friendship grows, as they spend much time with each other. I am going to show you their major bonding moments that also have a hint of romance.
Chapter 17: After Hayan starts living with Euntae he starts his usual morning routine half-naked and is completely startled when he sees Hayan. His reactions are hilarious.
Chapter 27: This is the first time that it’s shown how proud Euntae is of her. After a victim answers him if he isn’t worried about the situation, he tells her: “You need to give Hayan more credit. She’s much stronger than you think.”
Chapter 31 is a turning point for them. After Hayan finds out that Euntae is a vampire she gets suspicious and asks him if he had deceived her all this time. He promises to tell her everything if she wins in a fight against him. They end up fighting and the owner of the restaurant finds them like that:
Obviously, she thinks they are a couple who couldn’t keep their hands off each other and she asks them to leave. Just look at the art. It’s extremely gorgeous. Go further to read more Manhwa with good art.
Chapter 37: Hayan talks to Euntaes sister and helps the two of them reconcile.

Chapter 41: Their enemy has the ability to transform her body and completely look like other people. In this case, she transforms herself to look like Hayan and goes to see Euntae. He recognizes that it isn’t Hayan but still goes along with it and tells her to drink his blood. He then proceeds to tell her, that if it makes her happy he is willing to die. I know these interactions aren’t real but it is still a feast for the eyes of the romance-deprived readers.
Chapter 48: Guys! This chapter contains their first blushing moment. They see an old couple being very close. Then they start talking about their future and Euntae says: “I’d like to show you the world as it should be”. Euntae tries to explain but ends up leaving with a red face. Hayan is pretty startled as well and tells herself: “There’s no way the detective would think that way about me.”
Chapter 51: Yohan shows up and after Hayan faints he carries her back to the small inn. Euntae gets angry but then tells himself: “It’s not like Hayan and I are in a relationship”, and of course his thought process ends with a “Let’s give up”. He still questions Yohan and the discussion ends up getting pretty intense – with Hayan between them.
Chapter 57: While Hayan was passed out Euntae didn’t leave her side and fed her the medicine she needed – the old lady at the inn tells her that and Hayan blushes. After Hayan wakes up she walks to a small river with Euntae and he tells her to rely on him more. This whole chapter has many bonding moments. Go check it out: Unholy Blood Chapter 57.
