Goong: The Royal Palace, Vol. 1
Now, looking back, I realise that going into a show without really understanding or knowing any of the terminology used for each member of the royal family, the traditions and rituals they follow and just about anything else, was a little bit foolish on my part. Its no wonder I gave up just after 3 episodes.
The really great thing about reading tran ...more
Still, despite the slow build, Chae-Kyung isn't overwhelmingly annoying and Pak doesn't take all the well-worn routes. By volume 5 I was pretty well hooked, though I couldn't say why exactly--but the palace politics ...more
This is basically a Cinderella story set in Korea with a very unwilling Prince Charming and an equally unwilling Cinderella. I like it! As the later volumes come out, the political machinations take center stage which are compelling, but this first volume is pure fun for the surprise of everything and getting to know each other. The art is beautiful and all the men are gorgeous. What's not to love?
It's been years since I last watched the adaptation. There are some things that they changed for the sake of live action but the original is much more entertaining. The humor is fresh, it didn't felt forced at all and successfully made me laugh out loud a few times!
The artwork ranges from appropriately silly for the funny stuff to absolutely gorgeous and elaborate for some of the palace scenes. Park So Hee h ...more
I know this story had been drag out like a weekend drama in korea. The thing that i love the most from this manhwa is there's no innocent characters. everyone has their own fault, Shin, Chae kyung, Yul, king and queen. There isn't 100% truly protagonist believe me, you want to choke shin and in the next chapter you want to hug him because he was so pitiful.
i' ll tried to read another manhwa
It did have some heart-pounding scenes though! Especially at the beginning. I think I'll re-watch the korean drama instead, at least it had a better conclusion ;)
I liked the premise of what would it be like if the Korean Royalty had not been taken from Korea. Chae-kyung is a funny girl who embarrasses herself quite often. She's feisty though and just what Shin needs.
I'm liking how different aspects of their life have been developed from her family to his family.
BOTTOM LINE: I consumed it! Cute.
My friend first introduced me to Goong in 2010, through the live action drama. I was hooked straight away but had no option of completing the series at that time. So I pined away for a few weeks and then forgot about the show/manhwa altogether for the next seven years. Oops.
The art style is probably my favorite aspect of Goong. There’s a lot of detail on each page, and I feel like the people are drawn to look more realistic than characters in other manga/manhwa. The storyline of a Korean r ...more
Goong is the graphic novel that the hit Korean drama " Palace aka Princess Hours" is based on. In this first installment they story begins in an alternate Korea, where the monarchy is still ruling. Happy go lucky commoner Che-Kyung finds herself engaged to Prince Shin due to an arrangement between their grandfather's. I won't day anymore because O don't want to spoil this wonderful book. Can't wait to read installment number two and ...more
