Need recs for romance stories with star-crossed lovers. Something that deals with revenge. I already searched revenge in this forum and looked through star-crossed lovers tag (I have read most in this category).

I've read things like:
Silver (fujita kazuko)
Orpheus no Mado freaking sad

1. I want the main characters fall in love with each other (although they may not be so at first.... ie. the guy only befriends the girl for revenge but ended up falling in love with her)

2. One person may not realize who the other person is
or they may be totally clueless at first but then found out the identity of the other person and thus, the person tries to hide his/her identity for fear the other person will hate them

3. When the other person finds out, they may try to seek revenge but their love for the other person tears them apart. I want them to be merciless at first but slowly find a way to appease their dark soul biggrin

if you watch K drama Prosecutor Princess, it's what I'm looking for exactly. In K drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal, there's a hint of fathers of the main characters being enemies or at least, in disagreements with each other but I want it to be darker and there's not enough to explore the psychological sides of this love-hate relationship. My Princess is another example except that it's not enough tension.

4. I want something with a happy ending if possible because I've been reading so many tragedy that makes me depressed

Please recommend manga/manhua/manhwa (no bl/gl/ ecchi/hentai. Josei/shoujo pls)
or K drama that may fit what I'm looking for
I used to read a lot but is quite lazy right now but if there's an absolute must read novel, I would be happy to try to

Thanks! biggrin

Ahh I will try my best to think of something. Only thing that comes to mind immediately for love/revenge in general is Basara but I don't think that's what you're looking for exactly and you've probably already read it. Bichunmoo sounds SO interesting though and I wish I could read it!

Superior and Superior Cross
It's exactly what you're looking for, though the male mc finds out the truth very late in the story.

And if you like visual novels, you could try G-Senjou no Maou. The last part (Usami Haru route) has some elements like this. And she always thinks that he might be the Maou.

"Thus is our treaty written, thus is agreement made
Thought is the arrow of time, memory never fades
What was asked is given, the price is paid"
