The first few volumes were very cute, the innocent romance, without any great obsession between them. Jarte at first is a nice, thoughtful, boy head over heels type of guy. Even though he had alot of experiences with woman, he went slow on Jay. Later, he became a jealous, scary, psycho, obsessed freak. And Jay changed from the sweet, innocent, want to catch her dreams, strong willed girl to a weak, fraglie creature due to rape, trauma and bloody events. Even though all these unfortuanted events happened, there was something that still captures me, I guess it was their romance, their romance captured me, the bitter, obsessed, overwhelming romance captured me, so that I felt the pain when Jarte and Jay aren't together. Jarte was never experience love, he became obsessed and due to what happened to his dad, he became even more obsessed, it takes him a long time to get over that. This manga is really touching, scary, dramatic and overwhelming but it captured my attention that makes me reread tthe tragic events and the happy events over and over again

i love it
i'm going to go insane chapter 7 was such a cliff hanger and i need to know what's happening! i thought the story was complete silly me i should have looked before starting, and now i''m hooked 5th vol is said to be out this month but none of the bok stores have it --well enjoy reading it its fabulous!!!!
Definitely not my cup of tea
I don't mind "cinderella" stories with girls that go from rags to riches--I love cute princes who look hot in a black suit. Hot harems are also totally fine. Fantasy is my favorite genre. I just need one thing: a story that has its roots in reality...and this story was the most far-fetched story I've ever read. I have a feeling the author was trying to convince of the possibility of "true love" and "love at a glance"... If so, I'm not convinced.
Instead, I want to make sure I NEVER end up with a guy like Jarte....and make sure I'm not a girl like Jay.Hated both of their guts...This series reminded me of Romeo and Juliet -- although a less tragic version. From chapter one, I was already grimacing from the main guy falling head over heels for a girl who picks up his rings at the airport. They spend about 4 days together and get engaged. WTH? I don't know about every romance in history, but the general population of elites do not get engaged after meeting someone for less than a week. Then soon the manwha continually tortures our heroine with attempted rapes and harassment. Like, man, she needs a homosexual guard 24/7 by her side or something so the guard wouldn't try to rape her as well.
Characterization was also ... dumb (to put it lightly). Jay has no redeeming qualities, from what I can see, that would make anyone love her to pieces. But, every man that ever comes across her would be in love like they had been zapped or something.
Ranting aside, this series was also too dramatic for me. Drama came one chapter after another like desperate bullets whipping past me, and I have zero attachment to any of the characters to care for these endless problems...
While the art style didn't really affect me much, every supposed hot man had puffed up lips with super slanty eyes. However, in general, the artist did a really nice job depicting luxurious locations and apparel. Kudos to her/him.
Overall, this manwha just seemed superficial and shallow, filled with sentimentalism like that of the novel the prince was reading at the beginning of the novel. Definitely not my cup of tea.
I don't understand the overwhelming love this site has for this manwha. It's drama + unhealthy relationships.

Its quite good. It is very dramatic. But I think that the storyline is quite, in a way, weird as Jarte kept on like... don't believe Jay... although sometimes, Jay is the one at fault for not explaining why. But, I dont know why, but... there is one sentence in the story that left me a great impact.'You have always love me but I didn't realise it. I have always love you but you never believe me.' I forget who said it. But I still remember it... :/ In a nutshell, I love this story and the Ending.... Anyway, in the ending, Jay got pregnant right?
What an addictive, overwrought melodramatic mess this is...
... and shamelessly manipulative, throwing every single contrived plot-twist into the mix; attempted rape, parasuicide, attempted murder, obsessive love, amnesia, assassins, mafiosa, family tragedy, child abuse, half-siblings etc etc. The number of times a main character fell to the floor crying surely exceeded the number of times the heroine was stupid enough to be kidnapped.
The main leads shared a toxic relationship it was a wonder they didn't drown in a vat of tears, mascara and screaming. Really.
Having said that, the art is stunning, the men are stunning and the whole thing a beautifully overcooked tv soap opera that had me hooked. Just don't take it too seriously in terms of reality, plot and human endurance.
And by the way, anyone who thought they had been raped would've had a medical exam so - er - that little misunderstanding would have been cleared up early, although I do admit the emotional backlash would've been just the same.
Kudos to the mangaka who convinced me to swallow this overblown dessert against my intelligence. It was sweet, calorific and satisfying.
Oh yeah, did I say the men were hot?

Spoiler (highlight to view)
There are some mangas where the reaction varies from intense HATE to intense LOVE. Well, this is one of those mangas. For me though, it was just simply ah-mazingggg. Lots of girls dream about guys who will just sweep you off your feet and protect you from and danger. But, in reality, it sometimes always isn't just "happily ever after". This manhwa showed that there's gonna be lots of bumpy roads and mistakes. Sometimes Jarte was too possessive and really couldn't protect Jay too well. But sometimes, Jay was the stupid one and misinterpreted things, like what led her to commit suicide (even though she failed). It showed intense character depth, like how life's not all sugar and rainbows. There's lots of dark, twisted roads and sides to humans that even you may not know about, not until an event triggers it. It made me feel a large range of emotions. One moment elated, the next dark and sinister. And they were so vivid, too! What really got me from this manhwa, though, was something Jay had said: "When I fight, regret what I've done, or apologize...It'll have to be with him. With him, I'll feel pain. With him, I'll laugh...Just like that, I'll share the love we have with him, as he will with me. I'm going to be happy together with HIM." I read that line and I cried, I did. It was just so heart-wrenchingly touching! The author wrote that love isn't perfect, that it's about the times you spend together and how you feel about each other. This is, so far, my favorite read, both manga, manhwa, or book. :)
I loved it
I loved how it was not cliche. Really since he's a prince and all one would expect some type of family interference. nope. none of that. it kept up on my toes for once since it's so unpredictable. And the best thing is that there is a happy ending. i always hate going through emotional turmoils and end up getting disappointed since it was all for nothing.
Well it was kind of dramatic, but if you read the series all in one go, it won't seem being that dragged either. It's a nice read if you like a lot of, uh, very dramatic(?) moments. It definitely is a lot better than a lot of other kidnapping manga that I've read. Sappy as it may seem, It has a lot of feeling in it, you can actually feel the characters' feelings. How should I put it...cliche, but the feelings are live. Don't know if these count as spoilers, so beware: Jarte might seem like a wicked and forceful guy at the end of the first volume, but don't let that put you off. I myself don't like manga with twisted guys as the main character, and he's actually a good person. And second (which is very important to me) despite all the push and pull, it has a happy ending. Oh, and the arts really good too. The only reason I gave it an 8 was that like most shoujou manga, it was just about romance. All in all, I think it will be enjoyable if you read it in one go and read to the end!

Like a train wreck
I have to agree with just about every other post here. This started out as a nice sweet Manwha. I'm not saying that all I was looking for was fluff, but this has gone way overboard in the opposite direction. I find it hard to believe how the two main characters could possibly in love since they haven't had a chance to spend ten minutes together since they got engaged. With all the killing, abductions, betrayals, suicides and rapes I have to say I'm surprised that this isn't labeled as a tragedy.
By chapter 5 I was skimming through the chapters hoping that the Jay and J. would get some alone time together, but instead he seemed to be getting as disturbingly obsessed with her as the men around her, most of which had tried to kill her or hold her by force.
I gave this a 8 out of 10 and each chapter is deleted without a second thought, but for now I'll be keeping up to date with the story because it's like a train wreck. It's horrific, but somehow you just can't pull your eyes away.
I think this is one of the best manhwas out there nowadays. I think some of the opinions being made by some people are too strict and narrow-minded. Be considerate for the fact that the manhwa was excellently drawn and the plots were well developed. Despite to the drag of the events happened, I certainly admire the time and thoughts that had been put into writing such beautiful manhwa.. I'm looking forward for the sequels.
