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!

At the beginning, I really liked this series - but now, after 117 chapters, I'm pretty much done. As the series dragged and dragged on, whatever humor was originally present has vanished, the drama has increased by an enormous percentage, and somewhere along the road, I've stopped liking/feeling sorry for the characters, and have just become annoyed by them.

Also, at this point, I don't even remember a good deal of what has happened in the story, it being both not memorable enough and read too long ago. So I have almost no idea of what is happening anymore, and I'm certainly not going to put myself through re-reading.

I DID enjoy this at one point, but for me, said point has long passed. Once it finally ends (nowhere in the foreseeable future), and if I hear it got better from this point on, I may try it again and revise my opinion. But in the meantime, I think I'm dropping this.

''A modern fairy tale with a political twist''
Okay, I started reading 'Goong' out of boredom. A friend of mine told me that he was reading it so I thought I should give it a go as I couldn't find any other manga to read. I read the plot in Wikipedia and the story seemed to be pretty nice, rather unique- different from other Korean shoujos I have read till date. The art in the beginning is not up to the mark but it becomes better and better as the series progresses. The story goes good initially. I like how the author manages to bring up sudden comedy during some serious issue or when you least expected any comedy there.This manhwa has also been very informative for me! I came to know about the Korean royalty and culture. But, sometimes it turns to be a drag like the others said. The author is stretching the story which is irritating me. I want this manhwa to end now- with a good ending, of course. Keeping the 'dragging' issue aside, I will say its a good read for all Shoujo manga/manhwa lovers.

I mean when you start reading it really good, bu then it just gets so slow and long and long ... I mean most of the thing they do does not make sense ... and I believe that even for greed there's a limits. What does he think making the girl he love divorce the one she love gonna make her run into his arms. I was disappointed as the manwha went pass volume 13.

The pros:
-Art is amazing !! I love her outfits..but sometimes the characters look weird. There's obviously some lacking in facial expression as well because most of the time they look very stiff and emotionless..and the artist tries to cover it up by inverting the colors of the eyes or changing the background color or something...its too stiff! Otherwise, wow the clothes and detail are amazing.

The characters aren't very likeable....I mean, I didn't hate them but I don't feel any connection with any of them. Not that I'm supposed to (lol, yes i know, they are royalty of course) but when Chaekyung felt sad...I didn't really feel sad at all. I just felt annoyed half of the time. They lacked unique-ness..and I only liked them as a pair - not really as individuals. Shin, even though I felt bad for him sometimes, the feeling would be overshadowed by annoyance at his words.

TOO MUCH DRAMA. TOO MUCH DRAMA. NOt the good kind's the kind that makes me want to throw a computer out the window..not the kind that makes me anxious for more. I got so annoyed at the dragging story that I stopped at volume 15...and that's pretty far. It had to be really bad for me to want to just stop all together. :\ I had a lot of hope because I loved the drama..but the manga was too much..

The only drive i had for reading up to that far was the fact that I loved the drama and everyone was saying how amazing the manhwa was. Meh..I still don't see it :\

my opinion about this manhwa, first time read it "oh my god it's so funnny...!!" few volume after that "oh my god it's getting hoter and hotter!!! kyaa! kyaa!" few volume after that.. "what happen next!! what happen next come on!!!" after that "sad... so sad.. i cannot accept it" and then "oh my god!!! kyaa! kyaaa! (again -___-)" and after that "sad.. so sad (AGAIN)" then i realize.... it should stop... i can't bear it anymore... and all that waiting for month.... oh my god.. even the book on my country is so slowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww -__- so i decide i'll read it again after this manhwa end..
but it's worth to read.. seriosly. really really worth.. can make your heart so hurt sometimes

I enjoyed this series while I was reading it. It was beautiful and fun. But for some reason it felt so tedious as it went on. I only read the first 6 volumes but I didn't really care to continue it from then on. I'm probably not the right audience and I may come back to it some time.

I loved reading this manhwa.. it was so interesting at the beginning until volume 10? The latest releases are a bit dragging and boring. But overall, it's a really good manhwa, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I totally love this manga. It's been like a total roller coaster, One minute I'm pissed off at the characters and the next I will be laughing or sad.

When I fist saw how many chapter it was going on for I was a little put off because usually I hate really long stories because sometime they just drag on for so long, But this one is really good I haven't been able to stop reading it. It has just grabbed my attention and interest and I can hardly wait for the rest of the chapters.

I'm so pissed abnout the fact that this scanlator Octave Ministry decided to play his little game with people to read the realeses for 19th chapter. I mean, this whole thing will be only for those who have time to play this game (details on their site) and all the others will have to wait, who knows how long, the last three chapters we were waiting 4 months; and it's so unfair to let us wait even more. I have been the fan of this manhwa since a long time and always desperately wanting to read further. I even started learning korean because of it initially, but I'm studying so much for my masters degree at the moment that I would never be able to join the game and have the chapter.
