From Titania Scanlations:

Yona is the sole princess of the kingdom, living the luxurious and carefree life as a princess should. She has it all: the finest clothes and cosmetics, the most divine sweets, a loving emperor as a father, and the hottest cousin crush, Soo-won, anyone could ever hope to have. Now, if only her bodyguard, Son Hak, wasn't so annoying to her and her hair wasn't so red.

But her nearly perfect world quickly shatters as the man she loves, Soo-won, murders her father and the path to his ascension to the throne is assured. Son Hak escapes with Yona, and they lead a life on the run from that point on.

If you like strong heroines (not those fake ones who are strong, then turn to mush at the sight of a guy), then read this. It's full of intrigue, beautiful art, strong and kind characters. Don't be turned off by the heroine's apathy and weakness in the beginning; you can't really expect a princess to be that strong, right? But she adapts, and becomes really awesome later on! biggrin I really want to see her get stronger and watch the story play out- it's definitely something a fastasy-lover like me adores! And... did i say the art was beautiful yet? It's so pretty. So, so pretty, haha, I'll literally just stare at each page for a while just to soak it in.
P.S. Read the rest of Mizuho Kusanagi's works! They're all amazing, whether they're funny or deep biggrin

why are the mangas i get addicted to not complete?! ahh! this is so good!!! it has all the elements i have been looking for in a shoujo lately, and it is sooooo refreshing to finally read something that has me hooked and wondering what is going to happen next. i love the characters, and even most of the "bad guys"; it's not like on the surface "good vs. evil", it's a bit more complicated and full of emotion... if that makes sense.

read it!! unless you don't want to be hooked on something that is continuing... eh, but it's so good though! read it!

Didn't like the main girl at first, but once she lost that spoilt side of hers, she turned awesome. And Hak...he was already awesome to begin with. Love his attitude; it's hilarious if you're not on the receiving end of his words.

YEAH! I want to punch something!

She may have been a spoiled brat at first, but she shows off her true colors soon(ish). Hope she doesn't revert too much... Trust me, this spoiled princess has a regal badass side. Adapts well, too.

As for the bodyguard, Hak, he is a nice change from the "oh the things you do to me love you so much I can barely control myself~ see I just groped you its all your fault" type guy. He's more "I groped you so I could bait these idiots".

good art, cool polictical(ish) plot, fun characters

I have read 5 chapters until now and i really liked it embarrassed It's an interesting story, it left me wanting more! It's funny and the art is really nice! Since i'm only in the beginning I don't know if it will keep being interesting and all but i think it's definitely worth the try! biggrin

So far, imo, the female leads seems...well, quite weak and spoiled. My opinions may change, but so far, the female lead seems like a brat who doesn't consider anything but her 'beloved' Soo-won.
Maybe it's too early to tell, but I sense a predictable plot.
And it's only a few chapters in, 'character growth' my ass.
