I just wanna exclaim:
Dude, why do they think she's PLAIN! Sheesh- she looks pretty in my eyes, she looks like the pretty in shoujo mangas. If they want her to look plain, please, just make her look plain! Enough of my ranting, in fact, that was a minor one at that... This series, is amazing, it may be the cliche at it finest- seriously. Like many others said, this series is full of drama, and non-lighthearted romance- into obsessive love. If you are bored out of your mind from the cutesy shoujos like moi, then you came at the right place- this manhwa or any similar ones will certainly make you disliking light-hearted mangas. If you like this series, I highly recommend Stepping on Roses, its has the same effects on me when I read it (although in this one, not all guys falls for her).
To much drama but not in bad way I mean I love it love it love it One of my favorite of all time
TISH JUST GOT REAL
Dang, first time in years that I've pulled an all-nighter for a series but, it was worth it! Recommended for those who can put up with angst and distrust and tears and misunderstandings mixed in with love and smiles and fights and laughs and hugs ^^~
Contrived, and yet satisfying
There are numerous elements of this plotline that fall into the category of total cliche, albeit romantic cliche. Cinderella meets her prince? Amnesia? Gang violence? Rescue attempts? Suicide? It's like Wann decided to cross the full gamut of the shoujo genre cliche list in one compact attempt. And yet, even knowing how deeply flawed the plot is in some respects, it is still striking in the romance it develops. Deep, raw, complicated by insecurity and miscommunication much like in real life. And of course the art. With my deep appreciation for well-done cliches and pretty manhwa-style drawing, the detractions of the amnesia attempt (really one of the worst cliches in the book) are mere blips of imperfection in the face of something seductive and quite lovely.
Drama at it's zenith.
This series is so overwhelmingly dramatic, it'll leave you emotionally drained. That is, once you get involved with it. Trust me, you will. The theme is dark and intense with a Cinderella back drop. A prince from Ronnie comes to Japan for an assignment of some sort and bumps into an ordinary girl and ends up imprinting on her and....that's it. The story is about how he tries to make her reciprocate his feelings. Meanwhile she gets kidnapped, meets people(men, hot at that ) etc, etc... The main point of this series is that love can take a turn for the worse when it's gets too much. The male lead's love for Jay is too much for her to contain it, she's sort of saturated. You can go on and on about the philosophy involved in this manhwa. Seriously... -.-
Coming to the story, I found it very annoying that all the men she met seem to drop-dead fall in love with her. Okay, Jaret is wierd and he sort of just lost his grounds for her but why the gold haired Italian mafia dude(forgot his name) and Evans?? Come on, these things don't happen, even in fiction you have to stick to logic at times.
The best thing I liked are the dialogues, intense and moving, for example, Jay says : "You have always loved me, but I never realized that. I have always loved you, but you never believed me."
All in all, a good plot, nice art and intense characters makes it a good read. Recommended.
i actually like this series, its a bittersweet story but i thing the sole moral of this manhwa is that no matter what happened love can make u through, atleast that's what i thought. also this manhwa shows that no matter what happened in the past or the situation is, it shows that u can still love and if the love goes wrong u can stil' reconcile and have a happy ending xD
I can't believe how many people like this. People are even complimenting this manga on things that didn't even happen in it. Let me give a spoiler...

I erased my spoiler because it was so sloppily written.

I am not a big fan of this series. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this series is terrible, I'm just saying that personally, I wanted to kill someone while reading this. There's quite a few things depressing about this series but you can read about all the dark psychological issues in other posts... What I want to talk about is
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
HOW MANY TIMES SHE GETS KIDNAPPED. THE NUMBER IS RIDICULOUS! Every other chapter is being kidnapped, I mean seriously, she's like the new queen or something of a country and yet she's being kidnapped left and right. How BAD must their security be? 'Ah, yes welcome to the country with the worst security in history.. To your left you will see the queen being kidnapped.. AGAIN. Don't worry she'll be back in a couple days.' It's just too ridiculous for me to take seriously. Yes, there is all that depressive crap but I find that less concerning compared to how many times she's been kidnapped. It's like a hobby or something I swear.
So yeah... The art is alright I guess, pretty but kinda stiff. I cannot, no matter how hard I try give it a high rating... And I don't even want to recommend it, but it's up to you.
Not my cup of tea!
So I've read this after putting it on hold for a long time and honestly saying, although it's a dark romance story, I feel kinda irritated with the characters. I repeat, not the story, but the characters. Especially the two main characters. I know Jay is a head strong person or whatever but the fact that she kept on backing out from her love for Jarte and hurting him makes no sense. It's like in the story, they get together then off then together again, like COME ON!! make up your mind!!
And then there's Jarte. Whatever that's going inside his mind is a mystery. The fact that he kept on doubting Jay's actions is tremendously stupid. Although half of the fault is Jay's but still! Especially this one scene (I won't give spoilers!) that I hated so much. But at least the ending is a happy one. I never cry reading this manga, maybe because I was pissed off the whole time I was reading it.
Anyway, if you like dark romance stories with angst then this is for you. And just a reminder, if you ever see anyone that looks like your bf or gf flirting with another man or woman, don't believe it until you see the real scene with your own eyes.
Well...there's lots to say
I had kind of a hard time getting into it at first. It didn't seem very original with the whole royal marriage thing... But as I continued, it did have an addicting effect due to the high level of dramatic events.
But first I have to say something, what is it with koreans and european royalty/super rich and cool celebrities? Really? I live in Europe, and I can assure you none of the princes are like THAT! And even in kdramas there is always some kind of famous singer or actor with lots of money and big cars. Are they that obsessed with it? Come on! That's one reason why I'm starting to dislike Manwha. Another thing I absolutely hated about this one were the photos of europe they used. And then they even tried to put the drawn characters in them? That totally didn't work, it was awful to look at. The amnesia thing was pushed too far for me, and I agree with others here about the amount of drama. I like angst stories, and up to a certain point, I really felt with the characters, but in the end it really wasn't believable anymore. If you drag on the same problems over and over again it gets really, really old and absolutely unrealistic. They should've gotten over their 'constantly hurting each other' earlier, and the writer could have made up another problem if she still wanted to go on with the story. There are plenty of other complications she could've found. It annoyed me when they were so horrible to each other chapter after chapter with no promise of any of them of getting over their pride and childishness. Grow up! And I just don't like it when every guy that shows up falls for the girl. What was it, four? That's pushing it. It's practically harem.
Now for the good part: despite all these shortcomings, it was very addictive and very intense. I enjoyed most of it until the end, and I'll probably remember this story. And the art, which is quite important to me, was very beautiful too. Usually I don't like manwha art so much, but this is one of the better ones.
I recommend to read it, because the basic story is very beautiful and intense, quite unlike others (once you cleared the first chapters). It could've been better though. It just all kept getting darker and more painful, I feel there was no room for the more complex human psychology that not only focuses on those things. They could have had deeper and more intricate personalities, evolving more noticeably and more quickly in time. And please PLEASE, DO NOT EVER USE PHOTOS IN MANGA/MANWHA EVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!! And Koreans, get over your european prince/super star complex.
