From JanimeS: Princess is a very straight forward and sad series. This series is full of romance and politics. The background is an unknown medieval era where there are three countries. Among the three countries, there is an island country called "Ramira". The empire, Ramira, is where most of stories will unfold. There are generations of princesses, and the first 27 volumes set the story for the eventual regaining of Ramira by the greatest Empress of Ramira, Preia, who was beloved by the people and had many loyal men under her.

Made for a certain audience.
For those in love with history/tale that covers the span of multiple generations, and for those who don't scoff/break down reading about the tragic love that repeats itself from mothers to daughters, this series is nearly perfect. The tale has its tragic heroines and greedy antagonists, as well as men who just can't help but fall for the main character, who apparently has a smile as beautiful as the sun.
Unfortunately, after reading four volumes of this series, I can say that I've had enough. I hate to be the minority, but I personally just can't stand the choices the characters make, and I hate most of their guts too. So, I'm outta here.
Honestly, for a modern manga reader, this series will be hard to digest--Not because it's more intelligent or anything, but because its style is a lot different from the typical manga of today. The art, for one thing, will irritate many. The shocked face of blank eyes with no eyeballs just crept the heck out of me. And oh the horror, I could not shed a single tear at the epic, because it was too removed from reality for me to relate to.
But don't feel discouraged and give it a try....If you are emotional, bring some tissues too--although it turned out I didn't need any.

I read this for the the 3rd time fearing it would lose its charms but my it's still amazing and heart fluttering. Definite recommend. On my first and 2nd read, my favorite couples were Eshe Leo, Lala Skadei but on the 3rd read, I couldn't help but only focus on the Lala Skadei couple. Honestly, I only care about the Anatolian royal family, including Sibel!, now. It's kind of annoying to see the author setting up Sibel to be the losing leg love triangle to the boring "prophesized" love between Preia & Hero. I rolled my eyes when there was a scene where Hero fell sick because Preia was sick. Even though I know it's not probable, I wish the author would continue the series, I really want to know what ultimately happen to Skadei, Sibel, Lila, Areah, Beatrice, and Hazel.
It's on hiatus because
because Han's health is failing (heard that it's problem with her wrists) . Plus, she's not crazy about continuing the series due to severe criticisms on main H/h(her most beloved characters). I've given up on ever seeing the end.
Princess vol 32
Well, I don't know if this new is true. (I hope it doesn't, will never be true). Because of being an author writing Manhwa doesn't receive much money, it seems the authoress has stopped this Manhwa. And Deawon have announced that this series was dropped forever.
No way! I don't dare to imagine. Look, it's the best Manhwa I have ever read, and we still don't know anything about people's fate yet. This series can't be stopped like that.
I love this manhwa! I am hooked and was surprised to know that it's been on hiatus for years now. I hope Han Seung-won continues with this; because it really is a great series. Thus, the 10. I love the setting, the history, the politics, and the depths of the characters. Yes, the story is tragic, and I can literally feel my heart breaking (I even shed tears!) while reading the series, especially when deaths were met... but please, let this manga have it's ending. I want to see it to the end - how Pry will rule, who she's fated to love, what will happen to Leo and Eshe, and the young princesses, the fate of the kingdoms... will ASR be united again... and most especially... will Sei stay and still look after Pry?
My favourite character is Sei! Hands down to him, really. I don't want him to die - but he'll probably be happy to anyway. I love Sei, he's easily the best male character in the series, teehee.
My other favourite characters are Eshilde, Biyon, Sibel and Skadei Tor.
So! If you like history, love, politics, and tragedies... this one is for you.

How can she just stop it there? TT TT I got hooked, but it really is tragedy doesn't really let you get happy. The Art is very detailed and it has a nice plot, it almost seems like real history.
Another work of perfection
Perfect art, perfect plot, perfect characters....everything is perfect.. The art is a bit old, yes, but the detail, mannnn....I cant imagine how she draws that. (I actually stared at pages for hours). The characters are all beautiful (though at first it was hard to tell leo and his father apart. lol). A broad variety of characters: the strongwilled girl, the prince, the knight, the crossdresser, the commoner, the beauty, the tyrrant, all variations that can probably exist. It spans generations, showing alot of character development (especially Eshlid). Blend of politics, romance, tragedy (a lot), comedy (a bit), and pride. This is probably one of the best shojo historical romance I've read so far. (almost on par with VoB). Fate plays a big role here, so keep a lot of tissues by your side. There is a lot of crying to be done when you read this I am dying, waiting for this to be continued!! If not, I wish they'd make this into a KDrama, or a European series (Hollywood would destroy this), and I swear, this will be like a hit. I could imagine it already...ahh..if i were only a bit older and had a lot of time, I'd have taken this project up and turned it into a trilogy.

Happy brithday HAN Seung-won
Happy brithday HAN Seung-won! Thank you for your romantic and interesting series. I love your character Bii, Eishield, Leo, Sei, Heroic and Preia (of course!!). Who can conquer Preia's heart? I hope he is Heroic, a loyal and handsome man and they will be a really really lovely couple. I am dying to read vol 32, so don't stop, you did it sooo well! I am Vietnamese, and you know, in Vietnam they love reading Princess, too. This is the best series I have ever read! I wish you had a happy and nice birthday. Thank you.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
This is very tragic. I mean Bii dies, lala and her sis die, the king can't even look at his children but the sadest thing is LaLa. She has a acholic father. She was abused everyday. And in the end she dies. I feel soo sorry for her.

just read this for the 2nd time...
and the story still amazes me. i would wholeheartedly recommend this manhwa to everyone with its epic tales of love and politics over 3 generations, if only it werent so tragic and heartwrenching at the same time. most importantly, theres a terrible cliffhanger at the end of volume 31, and the series has been on hiatus for years!!! i really hope it gets completed one day, its really too amazing of a story to be left unfinished.
