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!

I picked up this series a couple of months ago and started reading it, I've read alot of similiar series with a sadist guy that can't express his feelings gets a masochist girl who falls in love with the guy even tho he treats her like crap, but in all the other series with these elements that I've read the guy has still had some kind of feature that's made me hate him less than the guy in this one, I read up to like chapter 50 or so in one go and then I dropped this series, seriously I've failed to yet find main characters that are as annoying as this boy and girl, and I've read about 300 series in total.

If you want a good piece of advice...
If you're looking for a good series then this isn't for you, this series is so overrated, I fail to see the entertainment in a series that has a guy just completely hurting a girl so bad over and over again.

There are alot of series that are like this but in every one I've read the main guy has at least had one element of humanity inside, this guy just doesn't seem to have one ounce of heart inside, these kind of sadist relationships are usually fun to read because of the way the main guy acts when he's head over heels in some girl, but this relationship is just awful, I fail to express it with words.

At da beginning dis mannwha was ok. But like afta some time it got soo damn addictive. I m in da middle of examz but all i can fink bot is Shin and Chae. Yea it is lame how they r confused about their feelings for so long, but still when they are like together like in da good moments talking to eachother, hugging, running away from da palace, all that its soo good. I cannot wait till chapter 118 comes out. Every chapter ends with something bad most of the time, and I just cant wait to go to the next chapter to see how it worked out. I cant stop thinking about Shin and Chae, godd, possibly going to ruin my exam results cos of this manwha. If your like one of those people, that gets really sad if the manwha has sad moments and stuff then dont read this but faaa dis manwha i just cant explain it so good. I really really hope that it will have a happy ending. At the moment its so sad, and it will probably be sad for a long time. M so damn depressed rite now godd!!

...but now it's becoming kind of tiresome. Hopefully it'll all come to an end soon; because right now, I just want to know who's going to end up where.

I'll keep reading it.

The art work is beautifully done. The story however, is lacking. It seems to be dragging on forever. They do, they don't. Jeeze... figure it out already.

i feel that thisone of the best manwhas ever. it may drag on a little too long but thats what i love about it i think that if it were too end i would be sad. and i also like too write and understand thaat an author must publish there story the way they want if the story doesnt feel right when they finish it because fans want it to be over they are terribly taunted. in short, the author has to write what she feels is right and not what the critics wanna see. if you like it fantastic. if you dont too bad.

If you want an insufferable twit as a heroine then this is the manwha for you. These characters have to be some of the most frustrating characters ever. Perhaps only second in all around dumbness to Romeo and Juliet. :/ The story starts okay but becomes so repetitive and you want to slap the collective bunch.
This manwha is helpful if you want to know how NOT to make a relationship/marriage work. Adding in 3rd parties, not listening to your spouse, being dumb overall and lack of communication.

You're much better off watching the drama. It's shorter and the portrayal of CG makes her more likable (though the likability is short lived.)

The storyline at first showed great promise. However, once the author starts to delve into politics, everything goes downhill from there. The art work is decent- nothing extraordinary. Also, the comical aspects of the story is mediocre and a bit obnoxious. Do yourself a favor, and just read the first 10 volumes or so, and come up with your own ending.

Well, I must say I love the art work and I did enjoy the begining of the series. As some have said, it's very repetitive, a lot of crying, and well, conflict after conflict. It sort of reminds me of those tv hospital dramas where one nothing good can ever happen. literally. the minute there's a step foward, it takes about 4 back. I liked the comical/stupidity and other angles of the heroine but, to be honest, she's too much of a push over. It's disapointing, seems like there's definetely going to be a sorrowful ending. As cowslaves said, read up t o a certain point and imagine a happy ending. :/

Truthfully, I struggled whether to give a good rating or not. This manga is that kind where you want to constantly tear one's hair.

At the beginning the male lead was so malicious that I wanted to strangle him - several times - and I surely wouldn't have regrettet it.
Then slowly, he changed for the better, only that this time everything else took a turn for the worse. Now even the parents want them to separate and eventually the female lead gives in - sry that may be my personal opinion.

Over all, the story gives an awkward feeling. Somehow, nobody is truly happy with his life and either tries to bear with it or vents one's wrath on someone else - preferably on the weakest.

And the moral of the story is? If I would have to answer that, I would say TALK to each other, and above all, be HONEST with your feelings. And that counts for both, male and female lead.
Call it childish, call it selfish, but I would never give up my love just because it inconveniences others. What's wrong with 'fight for your love' instead of 'oh well, it's probably better this way' ?

this is the first and only manga i hve i ever read where i hve seriously contemplated on killing the fictional characters. They are so annoying ALL OF THEM!! its like how stupid can ube, just say what u wanna say and get it over with, stop being so nit picky, and do it. Dont get me wrong i love this manga, and the art is beautiful, but the characters and the plot give me such a headache just when i think everything is going 2 be resolved BOOM another problem out of nowhere comes out and destroy the harmony between Shin and Chaeyong. They main chracters dont hve any backbones, and those that do are the bad guys, who should just get out of the way and move on iwth their lives. How obsessed can u be about revenge that u destroy the girls u love happines. OMG just reading this manga gives me a headache, i cant tell wat the ending mught be!!
