A bit dissapointing

I was pretty excited for the story at first. Although everything was so predictable, like who was the real princess and everything. I kept on reading.
But the end was a total let down. I just feel everything was so rushed at the end.

Its funny ... True...
But for me the gender bender is a bit... Not cool... It was boring...
And the plot is interesting(a lot mysteries)
But it didnt have a spark to me... I just went through every pages of everychapter jut looking t th pics cause it was like ... Hmmm... So typical that i got a bit sick of similar plot line fom other shoujo manga... And the art... I'm dont really care bout the mangaka's art when im reading a manga but here!!!
What made me read mor is because I AM SO CURIOUS about the art... It is so freaking confusing that i just read on (even though i wanted to stop) the art.... Is not bad but... Why do the girls look lile that ?! (>_<) errrrr its like tasting a bitter looking coffee even though u know it taste bad!!!
I dont know.... Read it guys and see it yourself

This manhwa somehow manages to be simultaneously hilarious and creepy at the same time. It's strange reading something with such a mixture of amusement and horrifiedness.

I think what contributes to it is that you really can't see where the plot's going. Oh, in some ways it's pretty cliche, and as far as gender bender, quite predictable. However, in all other cases, you really have no clue - and it's not the good kind of you have no clue, it's the "Holy crap, something really embarrassing is going to happen soon, isn't it?" kind of having no clue... the same feeling as when you realize you're stuck with a main protagonist whom you sort of want to cheer for and at the same time want to give a good kick. (And you are. Stuck with him, I mean.)

I don't know. I have mixed feelings. But it is a beautiful manhwa otherwise; dialogue flows well, the art is expressive and quite lovely.

So far if things keep going the way I think they are going this is going to be pretty obvious.
I think it's okay. I might just wait until they story finished and look to see if my prediction is correct.
But other then that I don't really think this story is my style.

The beginning made me wish I would stop this. When I continued because I suspected a twist and wanted to know more about this, I actually came to like it.
The humour is funny and it made me laugh sometimes, the art grew acceptable (I'm no fan of this art style and hey, I like a lot of other manhwas' styles) and the characters made me laugh. I still dislike our main chara, but somehow it's okay. The other characters are totally okay.

Now to the plot: As we read, we get more and more hints. But still, if my theory turns out wrong, I'll take away some points (a lot). Reason: Art - the whole story would feel like a total joke.
I'd say it's predictable. Just take a look on the genres.
But we'll see. For now, I would reccommend this manga for shoujo-freaks, but not for gender-bender-lovers. I was highly disappointed with the gender-bender element, you get a hunch, but you don't get anything more. At least not in the first volume.

I usually do not like manhwa artwork, but that is definitely not the case here. The artwork is here the my favorite for any manhwa I have read. I'm really enjoying this series cannot wait for more releases. The expressions are especially good at all times. I really hope this series picks up and becomes popular to get some quicker releases.

Great art

I really like this manhwa, and I don't even know why myself. The art is amazing, as is typical of manhwa, and the story is funny. The leading guy is well-drawn, charistmatic, and somewhat mean but very loveable. The plot is also interesting, maybe a twist developing? Overall, a very, very enjoyable read. Can't wait for more chapters to come out.
