Description
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!

Was Great Until The End   
Rating: 8.5 / 10.0

One of my first manhwa's ever. Overall it's one of the best stories I have ever read, this includes manga, manhua and manhwa. The plot had a great and fresh concept (to me), the art, you may not be familiar with at first, but you grow to love it and the characters.... were enough.

The idea for this manhwa was great, first few volumes were some of the best I've read in a while. However, somewhere in the middle and towards the end, it gets real dramatic. At times I was confused and frustrated with the amount of drama happening. You could tell that the manhwa-ka (?) was dragging out the series, because just when you thought it was about to end, something absolutely random and dramatic occurred to keep the story going. You should still read this manhwa anyways, in my opinion it's one of the best plots ever.

The characters all had their quirks and flaws.The main characters took a while to get used but I managed to instantly love some characters like Yul and Goong Eunch (?). The main female lead, Che-kyung, was strong with her actions and words, but was still weak with her insecurities. Shin was over confident and proud, but was just lonely all the time. Yul, I love that sick bastard, underwent a major change, from a quiet unrequited love to becoming a freakishly obsessed stalker.
You learn to love them however all characters will certainly annoy you at one point.

The art took a while for me to get used to, but as I kept reading I got used to it. The art gradually improves and becomes more beautiful towards its end. Or either the early scans I read weren't that good....

Everyone's main complaint, the ending. I can guarantee everyone single person who reads this till the end will hate the ending. I was so unsatisfied and angry after all of that effort readin 150+ chapters to get an ending like this. I actually didn't know it was an ending but another chapter, another cliffhanger. I thought after that there would be an epilogue at the end showing,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Yul and Miroo back in Korea, Shin and Chaeyang having children living in the Goong and Sun being a king?
The manhwa-ka could have chosen so many chapters to stop at, like when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Shin and Chaeyang touched for the first time, like bed touching...
. There are certain manhwas and mangas that are allowed to have this type of ending. That does not apply to Goong, especially with all of those chapters and explanations.

Avoid this manhwa if you hate drama. There's like a lot. Other than that it's wow and fantastic, baby. You should try it out if you're into shoujo and into historical drama meets modern romance.

I was so frustrated with this series. I can sympathize with everyone who said that reading this gave them a headache. . I agree that the series could have been finished way sooner. The middle was a complete waste of time for me with all the unnecessary drama. There were funny bits as well, but I don't think it made up for all the frustration.

I loved the story and the idea of Goong. I must admit that I put off reading it for a long while because of how lengthy it was. I wasn't deterred by the negative comments because I like making up my own mind about how I feel about about things. There were characters that I truly hated (Hyo Rin). I thought she was despicable. And As much as I loved Yul in the beginning, I hated him in the end. Definitely got what he deserved in my opinion HAHA I don't think there was anything wrong with the way Shin changed. People change and it's not like he did in a bad way. Chae Kyung parents completely annoyed me. You would think that their baby girl was 12 instead of 20!! smh

And what the hell was with that ending?!?! I mean it was so obvious what Park intended, so why not go all the way. We know what Chae Kyung's decision was so ending it that way was a load of crap. I don't think they would've waited for the brother to grow up to progress. it's not like they were still in their teens smh I think we could have seen what was after that. And for all our frustrations, I think we deserved it.

This series took me on a rollercoaster, I got angry, happy, frustrated, sad at times... the whole works. But ultimately, besides the ending, I still loved it 99.9%

Hey, if you are to start a good story, at least finish it properly! Seriously.....it was AMAZING......but......OI! OI! WTF?!! U JUST DESTROYED ALL YOUR HARD WORK! THE PLOT, CHARACTERS, IT ALL WENT IN FLAMES! CLOSE THE STORY PROPERLY! NOW YOUR STORY IS AVERAGE. IT WAS A GREAT ONE, WOULD HAVE GIVEN 10, BUT WHAT A PITY, THE ENDING...
HONESTLY, ALL I CAN RECALL FROM THIS MANGA AFTER FINISHING IT 2MONTHS AGO, I CAN ONLY RECALL A PALACE, A FEW CHARACTERS, AND THATS ALL. NOtHING MEMORABLE.

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!
