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!

It's better if you don't start. No seriously.

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. :/

It's so bad, that it's (almost) good...

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!!

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.
