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!

I love Goong and the writer's wicked humor. Both the plot and the drawing style might not be everyone's cup of tea but I personally find them interesting enough to stick with Goong till the end. However, the ending was a little too fast and unsatisfying. At last Chaeyoung made the choice, but I would like to read more about their life together after that. The last panel did not leave a deep impression in me even though it is what I had been looking forward to since the moment I started reading Goong. May be a few extra chapters of sweet and funny moments or so will end Goong more properly and with an exclamation mark.

I had put this off for ages because of all the negative comments, but then I finally gave in to my curiosity and read it, and I really liked it.
I also agree with all the comments about the crappy things about it, but somehow I still enjoyed it, and it's actually become a favourite. Maybe according to some people I have bad taste or whatever, but I'm just putting this out there to say that some people will hate something, while others love it.
So if you think you're interested in reading this based on the summary, give it a chance, you may really like it like I did. But if not, just stop reading it then.

It was great the first couple of volumes or so until the author added a whole bunch of drama that seemed to just drag on and on and on.
I started reading because I saw the drama, which I loved, but this manhwa has turned out to be a disappointment. The comedy was distracting and annoying at times - I mean, even during romantic scenes, you need to crack a joke? What the hell, it totally killed the mood.
Thank god the drama had the common sense to end it when it needs to. This manwha could've been done in half the length. Their romance seemed rushed and cheap (the whole ploy on the loneliness thing) and as much as I wanted to like it, I find myself trudging through the last 50 chapters or so.

The beginning looked very promising and I was looking forward to how they'll adapt and get to know eachother. Instead, it became more and more messy, they got divorced, the allegiance of the main character became shaky, and the new little baby brother turned into an asshole. All of which would have been somewhat supportable if there was a decent conlcusion. But nooo, we get one of the shittiest cliffhangers ever, without anything to follow up on it (not like anything could, the way it was written is just too final). And it's not like the good kind of final cliffhanger that lets you imagine what might follow or alternatively that everything's allright, nope. It's the kind of ending where you sit speechless in front of the final page and cry out "Wait, that was it? Nothing's resolved yet! How can you end it like this? I feel soo cheated for reading through all of this!".
Seriously, good thing there are scanlators and this isn't licensed, otherwise I would be cursing myself for wasting all that money.
Mental note to self: Remember to read comments first next time you read a manhwa (because for some reason I've experienced that more with manhwa than with manhua or manga, even though I've read over 20 times more manga)

I can't believe I am reaching the end of the series! What releases will I have to look forward to? Seriously, this is a really good, engaging, humorous read and to the people doubting the story line.. it is really really good from the middle onwards! Especially from volume 19!

I know we have our own opinions and thoughts on these but, those who think the main guy(Shin) Is a complete jerk or bad guy and how ChaeGyung is a " Fan girl"( I personaly DO NOT get how people think that) or useless, shallow, you don't get it either.
Think about it. Shin basically had to give up his whole childhood to become Crown Prince. He had to push away fun, feelings, and dreams. Because of that, he does seem like a cold-hearted person but isn't. Inside he's a very sweet, warm loving, and caring guy.
As for ChaeGyung shes creative and has a very outgoing personality. When she marries Shin, She does get a bit depressed and sick because of palace life, not being able to be an "average girl" and the fact that she begins to like Shin but he shows no affection to her what so ever in the beginning.
OH! And yes! ChaeGyung does cry ALOT but I mean, she kinda has a reason too. I mean if you were a simple commoner at first and were free to do whatever you like and then you had to marry some Prince who you saw was a stuck up, cold hearted jerk who gave you no affection even friend-wise, and you had to obey all palace rules and you could barely see your family or have fun, then YES! You would most likely cry a lot too! XP
~~but I mean, I'm addicted to this manhwa! I love it soo much! <3 c: I'm glad I started reading it! ^ ____ ^ = ~~

This peice of garbage should not be allowed to be even sold, let alone written. Not just cliche, but the main guy is just terrible, and she is so shallow and useless that I cannot understand how she can even function, let alone supposedly be a monarch. I give it an F for Failure.

Really Disappointed...Too Dramatic and only to find out the main character is a stupid fan girl wannabe and the prince has a Baby still in it's youth ass at that. I must say that im highly Disfavored by this. I wouldnt recommend unless you think stupidity and dramatic scenes are funny. Sigh just when i thought it was going to be funny. Good God...! >bigrazz
