Description
When your average guy struggling through life in modern day Korea gets “reborn” as a grand prince in the Joseon Dynasty, it seems like a pretty sweet deal, right? Nope, not if you’re the younger brother of King Yeonsan, one of the most tyrannical kings in Joseon’s history. A reign of terror is imminent, and it’s only a matter of time before everything goes downhill. But with a new Grand Prince Jin-seong taking matters into his own two hands, perhaps history won’t repeat itself…

Fetch the Gillotine! (Ch 44)

>Man gets Waifu 11/10 "HIs Type"
>IF brother goes Demon Mode on council, brother gets offed, man becomes king then Loses Waifu (for reasons)
>Dedicates new life as rich prince to keeping brother from going demon mode.

Has two major issues. One, the corruption is really bad. Like at first you rooting for the protagonist, by 20 chapters in, you are are really just wanting to point out that it would probably be a better idea to instead prevent the uprising and/or the events that cause loss of waifu.

Two; a lot of issues seem to crop of from bad communication. Given the theme is "Lets talk down Demon Mode Elder Brother" there sure isn't much talking going on. But there are moments where the characters feel more real for their flaws, and having more than one characteristic. Not all arcs are the equal, as some are long and well fleshed out, and the more recent ones seem a little more like filler, or build up to more important things that will be brought back later, not bad, but not enjoyable right in a row. There have been a couple of fairly strong arcs, and the protagonist at least seems to remember why they are there often enough to keep the story flowing. The better arcs show enough of both perspectives that you can see both sides, and while you might nominally root for the protagonist. Demon Bro has a very compelling argument for just offing them and being done with it. A tentative 8/10

Great historical drama

Even thou it's still too early in the story to know where it will go, this has been great so far.
The start is probably it's weakest point, the MC is a regular guy looking for a job that falls asleep and awakens as the 2nd prince in a tumultuous era in the Joseon dynasty, that's it, no explanation whatsoever and we don't even know what major he graduated from, it's very lackluster.
Fortunately leaving that lame 1st chapter, the rest is very well done. It's historical and done seriously so the story is grounded and realistic (it seems this story doesn't follow recorded history but rather what many historians suspect actually happened, can't tell), the time is a good choice since the interplay there is between the Royal family, the Ministers and the learned, characters are well presented and also feel like breathing people rather than puppets and as far as I can tell they are well placed for the era (I don't know much about Korean history beyond of series and manhwas so take it with a pinch of salt, it looks coherent). Lastly, the MC is interesting enough, he isn't particularly great in any aspect but he fits the bill of a somewhat learned normal person thrown into this weird situation and trying to use his knowledge of history to try to make a better future, not for Korea, but for his new family.

Definitely recommended to people that like historical dramas or court intrigue stories.
