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'm tellin ya, this manwha is great. I read the reviews and thought, pff, it's probably not that good. It is. I started it and looking at the art I thought "wth?" but you quickly get used to it and either i got so entrapped with the story that I lost my mind or the art really does get better. I read all 107 chapters in one night, literally could not stop reading for a silly thing like sleep. Worth giving it a go!! but now I'm so desperate for the next chapters...and sleep...

Omg! I read every chapter up to 107 and I'm really... sad and happy at once! How great is this series... I probably have never read better. And I can't wait to see the end... I hope it will be the best happy ending that could ever be in any manhwa/manga! I love characters... And the plot... Everything is slow, but by that main heroines are like my family... Ahhh, I need this series to be ended quickly... I can't live knowing what's going on now, in 16 volume!

Great series though you can gradually see the art change (Shin becomes more girlier with poutier lips and rounder eyes) I liked the initial art (Shin looking boyish and handsome) and am turned off by his new look but the story gets interesting so it makes up for it. That's the reason for 9/10 ^^

Well, I gotta say, as much as i LOVE this series, I think the 2 big things that really broke this series for me was all the political stuff and Yul. I mean, i REALLY LOVE this series(despite me hating the drama), but just...neh. I think it was also cuz of how long it took for the scanlations to come out that broke it for me...but either way, I recomend this series to anyone that's looking for a good manhwa or manga to read!

Plus, I bought the entire series! biggrin

best manga/manhwa EVER

This is so good that I'd rather see Shin and Chae-Gyung together than find my soulmate. I read all 103 chapters nonstop through the night. From 12 AM in the morning to 11:50 AM I couldn't stop reading. Call me obsessed, but holy crow, Goong makes you laugh all the way through the series, makes you smile and say "awww" and cry all at the right moments.
This is the best manga/manhwa I've read in a long time, and being the obsessive otaku I am (with the over 200 series I'm reading and finished), it's saying a whole lot. I want it to not end but end at the same time. It's so good it shouldn't end, but I want to find out if they end up together...<3
The heroine is funny, strong, and often weak at times, but I love her. Trust me, you'll never get tired of this. One of the best shoujos, EVER. It makes you feel like you never want to read another manga/manhwa series again until it's finished. <3

I read this story but only at a time when shin said 'I don't want to let her go' (or something like that). It was sad and I give up on this.

e_e maybe I'll read it in other time (I don't know why the autors make a good story, but they make it too long!).It's not that I didn't like it, it was the fact that the guy was mean to the girl.

I mean the story is great! (:

<3 but just a few things I don't like.

I adore Goong, really, I love Shin, even though I should hate him, but I can't (Instead, I hate Hyorin (you bitch ¬¬) and Yul (but sometimes...)!! and I adore Chae-Gyeoung, She is the coolest female protagonist ever!!
xD I'm really in love whit this manhwa, I always end up crying when Chae and Shin fight... u_U I'm hopeless!

With every page, every chapter - hell with every volume! - I fall more in love with the characters. I cry for them, laugh with them, rage and fill bitterness on their behalf... It's funny how with other manga, after the 3rd plot twist you begin to fill irritated... I felt more intrigued, and eagerness...
I went through vol 1 -15 in two days... Of course I didn't sleep one of those days...But that's besides the point...
To me this is the Nodame Cantabile of Manwha...
We just want someone (Shin Lee/Chiaki Shinichi) to take notice of that girl's effort and heart... I can hardly wait for the next chapter!!!

This is probably one of the better Korean manhwas I've ever read. In my opinion, it's better than the average shoujo manga plot(*cough*Yuu Watase, anyone?*cough)

The political aspect of the story could be a potential turn off to readers who dislike complicated stuff, but I'd say the relationship developing between Shin and Chae-Gyeoung is well worth it.

Sure, there are a few moments when it becomes too... "chibi" grotesque, but mostly, the art's quite good for a Korean artist(it's not as clearcut as that of manga, but it's still pretty in its own right). I don't really think there's a moment when you, as the reader, could point and say, "Yah. I don't think I would do that. That's unrealistic."

The characters are very human and they make lots of mistakes(and by a lot, I mean LOTS). Sometimes it does a get a little side-tracked(with the whole bits about the eunuch and such) and it does get a little irritating, but overall, I'd say the story was mostly enjoyable.

On another note, I'd say watching the drama before reading the manga is probably better. It does a pretty good job of summarizing the plot(but of course it'll have a few different twists not in the manga), and it's a really good prelude to the story.(By which I mean it'll help you to recognize some of the things about to happen when you're reading the manga, but only enough so that not everything becomes something to be expected).

The drama's called Princess Hours in english, but Goong in chinese/korean. (Look it up on wiki-d).

BTW. Here's my last two cents: Agh, I detest Yul. Ugh. All my friends love Yul ever since the drama, but I still worship Shin(and the fan-coupling ShinxChaeGyeoung.)
Yul keeps killing all the good momentsT___T He kills everything.(And ahaha, Shin is so funny. So is CG. She's flipping cute AND scary. which is very wierd.)

Yeah, I'm rambling now because I'm still high off my Goong-rush. I've read all the chaps. up to 95 so far in three days, and it must be seriously affecting my ability to review.
