i started reading this series after reading can't lose you. i fell in love with art and of course the characters. the tension is killing me after reading the 5th volume! hope there're more chapters to be released soon.
absolutely loving itÜ
one of the best i've ever read. i don't usually read manhwas but this got me hooked. great art, great storyline. funny yet poignant and got me laughing and crying at some points. i also loved can't lose you. iXi released that one really fast and i hope they do the same to this one too. thanks so much for scanlating thisÜ
Farfetched but hey, it's a harem.
It is a good manga, especially if you love drama and romance. Yes, it is dramatic. But, it teetered just a bit on ridiculous. Just play a drinking game for every time someone attempts to rape her. Either you'll see what I mean, or be too dizzy to keep going.
Anyway, what I really enjoyed was that this was a fantastic story for those who like the guy rushing in to save her. There was plenty of guilty faces when she gets in trouble and the guys blame themselves, deliciously so. It is obviously a harem, keep that in mind. Be prepared for roll-your-eyes scenes - if you're expecting something realistic and loyal, you will be disappointed. However all the guys were hot, and man, Wann can draw, so I forgive its flaws. If any girls have a thing in particular for physique, these guys will make this manga quite a bit hotter.
The first few chapters are quite light something of a typical shoujo manga where you would expect the two of them to have their happy ending easily, but then everything's not so easy in this manhwa's world. Be prepared for a lot of drama and expect the unexpected. There may not be much love going on in here until the end, but if you have the patience to endure it, then you would be pleasantly surprised of the ending and it can be very gratifying after all the events. I dropped this manhwa three times due to the drama, but picked it up again because of the wonderful art which Wann has made it simple but yet beautiful, and I'm glad I finished it because it turned out to be a spectacular manhwa in the end.
Read The First and Last Parts; Skip The Rest
This manhwa is full of drama its overwhelming. As @happyfairy000 suggested just read the first 30 chapters, and read the last 10 chapters. This manhwa was promising then everything just gets messed up and complicated.
The plot at first was fantastic, I liked how it was going up until the 'Jay Has Amnesia' ended. I don't like the fact that every man Jay encounters starts to fall for her and ends up obsessed, I just hate it, she doesn't have that many redeeming qualities and features, and it just brings the whole manhwa down because it effects everything. The ending was slightly satisfying but it could have been better if she plotted it differently. There's just so much drama going on in the middle of this, eventually you will hate every character at one point. I think the manhwaga (?) tried to keep the manga going on my inserting sub-plots that weren't really necessary, especially that thing with Jarte's half-brother, sub-plots like that brought down the manhwa's overall rating.
The characters, as mentioned before, will be hated at one point during the manhwa. The feels that they have for each other, and how they go about it is very frustrating. The female main lead seems to make an equal amount of right and wrong decisions which isn't really that bad but it does get irritating. Jarte's obsession over Jay does get to the point where it's overwhelming and exaggerated. The other characters you seem to get a feel of their overall personality, but you don't really seem to feel anything for them during the course of the story.
The art was good for a manhwa. It expresses the emotions of the characters well.
The manhwa is great for someone addicted to drama and stuff, but for regular shoujo readers just read the first and last few chapters. The ridiculous drama in this drags the rating to a 7.5/10.
Well...there's lots to say
I had kind of a hard time getting into it at first. It didn't seem very original with the whole royal marriage thing... But as I continued, it did have an addicting effect due to the high level of dramatic events.
But first I have to say something, what is it with koreans and european royalty/super rich and cool celebrities? Really? I live in Europe, and I can assure you none of the princes are like THAT! And even in kdramas there is always some kind of famous singer or actor with lots of money and big cars. Are they that obsessed with it? Come on! That's one reason why I'm starting to dislike Manwha. Another thing I absolutely hated about this one were the photos of europe they used. And then they even tried to put the drawn characters in them? That totally didn't work, it was awful to look at. The amnesia thing was pushed too far for me, and I agree with others here about the amount of drama. I like angst stories, and up to a certain point, I really felt with the characters, but in the end it really wasn't believable anymore. If you drag on the same problems over and over again it gets really, really old and absolutely unrealistic. They should've gotten over their 'constantly hurting each other' earlier, and the writer could have made up another problem if she still wanted to go on with the story. There are plenty of other complications she could've found. It annoyed me when they were so horrible to each other chapter after chapter with no promise of any of them of getting over their pride and childishness. Grow up! And I just don't like it when every guy that shows up falls for the girl. What was it, four? That's pushing it. It's practically harem.
Now for the good part: despite all these shortcomings, it was very addictive and very intense. I enjoyed most of it until the end, and I'll probably remember this story. And the art, which is quite important to me, was very beautiful too. Usually I don't like manwha art so much, but this is one of the better ones.
I recommend to read it, because the basic story is very beautiful and intense, quite unlike others (once you cleared the first chapters). It could've been better though. It just all kept getting darker and more painful, I feel there was no room for the more complex human psychology that not only focuses on those things. They could have had deeper and more intricate personalities, evolving more noticeably and more quickly in time. And please PLEASE, DO NOT EVER USE PHOTOS IN MANGA/MANWHA EVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!! And Koreans, get over your european prince/super star complex.

While reading this, I discovered the difference between love and obsession. I mean Jarte was obsessed with J, to the point where he wanted to kill her.
The only male I liked was Ewan. I mean he is the reason they broke up, BUT he quicky changed into a nice guy, and realied that the only one for Jay is Jarte and the only one for Jarte is Jay.
The worst part was the middle though, its like all these thing happen in 1 secpnd. And boom, they broke up. But then they figured out they can't live without each other and blah blah blah.
BUT the one thing I must say is, YOU MUST BE STRONG. You have to prepare your heart for ALOT, and I mean ALOT of tragedy. Don't think this is a cinderella story because its not.
It's very far from cinderella.
Its filled with obsession and tragedy, with a a little bit of rape, and attemped murder.
And remember this is a Psychological manga, so don't expect this as a light shojo because its not.
The reason I gave it a 7 is because of the matureness in it, and it is a bit too much for light-hearted readers like me.
Just remember the warnings I gave you.
Such an amazing shoujo manga ;__;
I loved the art, the feelings and the emotions of despair. Although there was REALLY a lot of typical korean "cliches", and the misunderstandings made me want to tear a pillow open. Poor pillow :,( but it's a good kind of rage, haha.
I loved this manga, and I'm too tired to write how amazing it was. BUT HOT DAMN JARET. oh and plus, the feelings were really well expressed. Just saying. But how many people have to fall in love with her?
I loved the ending, made me smile (:
Hold on for the ride
I completed this series in a span of 3 days and that's pretty impressive for me considering it's an 11 volume series and I'm a college student. This should tell you that the series will definitely drag you in for the story. I didn't know what to expect while reading this but before I knew it, I was too into the story to bring myself out.
The art in this series is so so pretty. The detailing of the eyes and lips is on point and it's definitely refreshing to have such great art in a storyline. I also found the fashion choices displayed in the story to be perfect and it made me wish I was a designer!
The story line did have me tangled in it's web. There is happiness, rape, torture, suicide, abandonment, love, violence, amnesia, murder, etc in this story. I really feel the author has touched about every line of betrayal in this story... however in a way it could be too much. I only gave this an 8 because I felt the story line had so much drama back to back. It would have been nice to have a breather between being thrown into another loop in. Should the author would have written the story with some constant mild flow, I would have definitely given this a 10
Hold on for the ride because this story will throw you every direction

this was a really nice story, like said before it managed to avert a lot of cliches quite nicely. if there's anything I didn't really like, it was that at some points the story seemed to repeat the same 'kidnapping/dissapearance, guy goes crazy, she gets saved' pattern a bit. apart from that, the story was really nice and the characters were well portrayed. I really recommend this one!
