  • Knowing the hair colour of the main character/s helps to rule stuff out more quickly when looking through images. Sep 8, 2022 at 13:31
  • It might have just been black, I think the manhwa was black and white.

1 Answer 1


This is likely Dokebi Cafe.

Dokebi Cafe: Sacred Grounds for Those Who Wait" I will only love you even if I were to be born a thousand times." Gangeun is a poster girl for bad luck. She's a magnet for accidents small and large. Just when she's getting used to her eventful high school life, she encounters a strange "boy" named Mooyoung in front of a new cafe. What is this curious place? Who is this mysterious creature in the form of a boy? Bad luck seems to have left Gangeun but there's so much more that awaits her.

The story opens with Gangeun dreaming of the past, followed by multiple incidents of extremely bad luck. She sees a new cafe on her way to school and a young boy waiting outside it, briefly with visible fox ears. When she talks to him later, he states that she shouldn't be able to see her - this is likely the "sees spirits" from the question, but there's no indication she was able to do this prior to meeting him.

Main character encounters fox boy

From talking to him, he states that this cafe is a place of meeting; she either wants to meet someone, or someone wants to meet her. The implication being that she wants to meet someone from her past life from the dream. There's a hint that the person she's to meet is at the cafe as the owner's "mercenary", but this isn't confirmed as of the chapters I've read.

Similarly, her exact circumstances in her past life haven't been confirmed, but the owner does refer to her as the shaman of a ruined kingdom.

Hint to the main character's past

I also haven't seen the vampire or any real details about the owner, but there's enough similarities that I'm confident that this is the manhwa.

Found by searching mangaupdates for the tags Curse/s and Unlucky Protagonist.

  • Thank you! This is the manhwa I was looking for!
