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 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.

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
