From Yen Press:

Monarchy ended long ago in Korea, but there are still other countries with Kings, Queens, princes and princesses. What if Korea had continued monarchism? What if all the beautiful palaces which are now only historical relics were actually filled with people? What if the glamorous royal family still maintained the palace customs? Welcome to a world where Korea still has the royal family living their lives! But for Che-Kyung, a high-school girl, this is a tragedy, since she has to marry the prince who turns out to be a total jerk!

This is actually one of the funniest and silliest manga that i've ever read. the storyline is great, unlike other shoujo mangas that's just too typical. I have to say that the So Hee Park did a great job with the main character, Chae Gyung. She kows when to insert the funny and dramatic scenes and the expressions she used for the characters are seriously cute!

For those who haven't read the book, please do. It's great!

I quite liked Goong... so far smile... but in response to those who think the main character is stupid........... well let's just say i've seen worse... *cough* love monster *cough*... *rants about how much hiyo is such an idiot*..

but yes. I like the plotline... the underlying concept is kind of cliche; hate-to-love relationship... but the way it's projected... amazing smile

Goong is the my favourite mahnwa next to You're So Cool. I really enjoyed reading this mahnwa since I am sucker for stories like "hate-turning-into-love".

We first off seen how Chae-Gyeong and Shin were first met. They were really actually in a bad situations most of the time. I remember Shin even said to her when they first met, "There's no way I'm gonna marry a person like you!". Heh, but who would ever thought that his statement would contradict to what is destined for them? Although they hated the arranged marriage at first, they slowly are getting to know each other. Especially Shin. From a reader's point of you, you will see how Shin so transparent to his feelings for his wife. Even if he shows that he doesnt care but his acts and what he thinks are overflowing...Plus he is very possesive. (Eg. A scene where Chae-Gyeong was sent to the hospital due to her being malnourish and her mom asked Shin if she could take her home but Shin directly declined her wish thinking that "once she recovered and realized that her real happiness is with her family, she might not come back to me")

On the other hand, we all know that Chae-Gyeong has liked Shin ever since so it's really no biggie if we see her with overflowing feelings for Shin but sometimes I really pity her with her situation towards how Shin treats her coldly. I try to picture myself in her shoes and I could have died if i were her.. lol.

Love Triangles.. Oh i'm such a sucker for these. The tension and wide sparks between 3-4 people involved in a relationship are mainly the interesting things to see in a manga/manwha

Not only this mahwa has a good and comical plotline, it also has good artwork. I mostly skipped the historical stories (since i dont really feel like studying histories at but overall it is a really great mahnwa to read and worth of your time. So 9/10 for thatsmile

If you guys enjoy stories that has historical theory, romance with comedies,"hate-turns-love" and looking at transparent characters, here's a manhwa for you to look atsmile

I'm not saying i didn't like or i loved it, I'm just kind of in the middle, indifferent, you might say, I am yet to read more to fully judge it.

Great drawings, amazing plot, lots of funny bits, and some really heart-wrenching moments. Definitely a manga not to be missed! Highly recommended.

But if you're entirely new to this series, please watch the drama first (no need to catch Goong S, it's a complete spinoff), then go on the manga. This way, you'll see the beauty of the series! =D
