Description by MU:
Cane Lele was born into the fashion industry. Her mother, Ye Fei Yi, was Taiwan's top model, and her father was also a model, until a tragic airplane crash left Lele without parents. Therefore, it is no surprise that Lele hates the industry, thinking it superficial and unnecessary.
Raised by her maternal grandmother, Lele reaches seventeen before she is sucked in by her mother's sister, Ye Fei Hong, a fashion model agent (and former model), convinces the reluctant Lele to model. Lele had been adverse to the whole idea, until she sees a photo shoot of popular American model Angus Lanson, and she begins to see modeling as an art form.
When Aunt Fei Hong's magazine editor invites Angus Lanson to a meeting of all the top fashion ambassadors, Lele is invited to meet him and is very curious. She does not know that Angus' twin elder brother, Eros Lanson, is secretly accompanying his brother. This obviously leads to confusion and is the start of a charming story of Lele's goals: fashion in NYC, becoming a top model, and love?
For those who have caught up with it, who do you think LeLe will end up with? Is Angus as shallow as he's being portrayed? And is there some kind of strange attachment that Angus feel for Eros?
Anyway, talk away!

Ohhhhh man, this is definitely one of my favorites. >w<b Lele Cane is an absolutely hilarious heroine and I find I like her bantering with Eros best. Not trying to give too much away, but Angus is -gasp- a little bit deeper than he lets on. XD
I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a good laugh and pretty art. ;D
I am definately enjoying this manga and would definately recommend it.
For Raws upto chapter 58 you can go to this site :
Mellylemon is doing a great job translating this manga for us. A big thanks and shout out to mellylemon for the work and the website http://mellylemon.livejournal.com/
Currently the series is translated till chapter 35 and scantilated till chapter 56. A chapter is published once every 2 months (i think). You can read the chapter summaries of 55 & 56 on mellylemon's site. For all other chapter summaries you can browse through the diary kepy at the Dreams for Drugs website http://tatsukida.pitas.com/
A big big big shout out to 3kat for keeping up that site and work. I really appreciate your effort and time and love you for all the fun you provide for me
This is a great site which gives you the latest raws for many shoujo manga. On the left browse in the calender and see chapter summaries of The One(along with many other mangas) in the monthly forum.
Have fun reading

i like this manga very much, i can't wait to see more
Do you see Eros & Lele posing together as models for a hot photoshoot by Damien? Any guesses?
Does anybody know when are the new releases dates of the manga "The One" by Lee Nicky? Or where I can go to check them out? thank you.
Not sure whether are you asking about the raws or scans. For the raws, it's out every 5th of the month in a taiwanese mag called "花样“. The latest in Jan is Chapter 64. Both 63 and 64 just shows the internal struggle that Eros is going through, not as interesting as the few chapters before this
Though the art is a little bit similar to the manga but the feeling of it is different. I remember reading it a while ago but forget which volume I stopped at :P I enjoyed reading it and will read it it in the future once again hopefully
I know this is off the topic but Nami, I love your avatar. <3
i love this manga. its very nice story line and also romance
I finished this manga in 2 days I just loove it. Angus and Eros are so HOT and Lele looks amazing. I hope she will remain with Eros becuase I love him, lol.They are so cute together!!!! I can't stop laughing when Angus hugs and kisses Eros altough it is really weird and I don't really get it. I hope that Eros will make a photo shooting with Lele as lovers. And that first kiss in Japan is one of my favourites moment :X
