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!

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!!

I love the series and the story, but its so frustrating. All they do is fight, she's always running to Yul, somethings always in the way. It's been dragging on for too long I'm already debating to just give up on the story.

THANK YOU to goong scanlations', Ababanana and Joyfuls
I just go back into this manhwa and I can't believe we're almost up to date with the korean ones~ i feel like the ending was coming but, hopefully not yet, there's such a big climax going on (current: chap 115) > o<
the art is so original and soooo detailed (did u look at the background?!) and i love the chapter covers of the two couple every time

to me the story is interesting enough to keep me reading every now and then, but the comedy is so awful I actually get angry. Despite that, the series is very addictive especially when it comes to its romance.

Despite the cover looking beautiful, the art isn't that great. The plot is just slow and irritating. There's a whole lot arguing and whining and crying. Plus it's overly a very shallow and exaggerated kind of way.
Just one big, annoying sob-fest!
I don't recommended wasting your time on this one.

I heard some people say that it's better to read it up to vol. 10 and then think of a happy ending.And that's exactly what I did.I think it was for the best because it really is like there doesn't exist a happy ending for Chae Gyung and Shin.The art is realy beautiful but the storylines aren't beautiful at all.

this manhwa will definitely get you hooked. the drawings are amazing. i've been keeping up with it but honestly, just as someone else said, it seems to just be dragging on now. i'm going to continue reading because i want my damned happy ending.

So I am now on Volume 18, why do I still feel depressed?? Their relationship has somewhat developed, but then BAM another obstacle. I am sorry but they are making Chae-Gyung go thru so much!!! She has to be publicly humiliated, thrown out of the palace, and then cannot even TALK to the man she was forced to leaveconfused Who the hell would put up with that....I would have already told him what was going on or already left the damn country if she wanted to be a martyr so bad. So basically for those who are reading this manga and have not gone up to this point, please do not wait for any happy ending anytime soon. It just a painful and depressing road still up ahead. I hope I see a light somewhere fast because if the ending is a simple closer with a neat bow i will be seriously pissed!!!!

Do not even think of reading this series. I mean it. You will want back the time you wasted.

This story was on course to end at around volume 10-13----a normal length title. It was moving right along. Character development, pacing everything were right. And then the author Park So Hee apparently got worried.

"What if I never have another popular title again? Oh, my!"

And so, in her quest for immortality, she ended up killing this series over and over again, each time dragging its bloody, decayed, headless, soulless corpse back from the grave so that she could do it all over again.

No, this is not hyperbole. If you are a writer yourself, I strongly advice you to read this one as an example of what not to do.

I stopped reading about ten volumes ago. Today, I took a peek at the latest installment. The conflict was exactly the same. No progress at all. None. Nada. The characters on the other hand are all completely different. And I don't mean they have grown up. I mean they are imposters that the author created so that she could have lots of random stuff happen in hopes of disguising the fact that this one is heading nowhere (except maybe down the same toilet time after time in some perverse existential hell).

To the author, here is something that will make your easier. Instead of the pictures and text, just draw dollar signs of every page. I like to think that your family is in debt to the Korean version of the yakuza and that they are holding a gun to your head forcing you to write this crap. Now that would be a good story.

This is so addicting. At first I read it only to pass the time, but i found myself reading loving it. I know this has lots of drama and the relationship between chaegyeong and shin has its ups and downs but thats what makes me keep on reading. To see what will happen.
I also like it because its like a romantic comedy.
