Korean Manhwa. Cute shojo gender-bender story with Dong Young, a royal daughter of heaven, who is betrothed to the King of Hell. She wants to escape this fate, so she runs away to earth. Disguised as a boy, she hides from the heavenly and hellish hosts trying to find her, as well as trying to live a "normal" life as a teenaged boy (even though there is a boy in class who 'likes' him as a male, but does this classmate really believe that Dong Young is a boy or does he actually know her secret?)

I only give it three stars because I didn't like it or hate it. It was just kind of meh for me. First off, all I can do is laugh at the main character's name. Dong-Young Whang. I mean....Really? Maybe I'm missing something here, and I know I can be immature at times, but COME ON! SERIOUSLY??. Anyway, continuing on, the book is about this girl who is the princess of heaven, and she ran away because she didn't want to get married to the Prince/king of Hell (I can't remember) So what does she do?

This is a manhwa, so it has to be read from left to right.

The world the characters are living is similar to Card Captors Sakura. I am still having a little trouble remembering the names (Korean names are harder to remember). Doung Young is a princess who ran away because she was betrothed to a Demon King. Now she is here on Earth, posing as a boy student. There are a couple of girls who are, actually, fangirls; crazy over her relationship with Bi-Wal. And actually, their relationship looks yao-i

Just picked this book out at Borders on a sunny day. I decided to get this since my background is Korean and that I like to keep up with my own roots through a Manga Book. I am really surprised that at an American Bookstore like Borders that they are willing to sell Japanese and Korean Manga Books to the American Customers.

I think that maybe since Sailor Moon and Pockey Mon are popular with the pre-teens they have decided to sell Japanese and Korean Manga Books.-that is really interesting to kno

Putri mahkota surga menolak dijodohkan dgn raja neraka, jadilah ia kabur ke bumi dan menyamar jadi cowok remaja. Tapi surga tentu saja tdk mau diam saja krn itu akan merusak persekutuan damai mereka, maka diutuslah 4 penjaga (Seiryu, Byakko, Suzaku, dan Genbu) utk mencari putri tsb. Di luar dugaan, putri yg satu ini bkn Damsel in distress loh, dan rupanya dia punya kekuatan yg lbh hebat dari 4 penjaga tsb. Lalu bagaimana reaksi raja neraka saat mengetahui putri kabur?
A good, solid series by Kara. Not quite as good as Demon Diary, but still very enjoyable. The runaway Princess from Heaven flees her intended marriage to the Prince of Hell and ends up going to school on Earth disguised as a boy! Mishaps occur and much hilarity ensues. The one problem with this series is that there are lots of hidden pasts which most of the characters know about and the reader is left in the dark about. This gets annoying after 4 or 5 books....

this was adorable! i'm so glad i picked up everything that was available at the library for this series. so what if it was only 4 books? i enjoyed them all. the characters are great too. bi-wal jin, hot and fun... haha. it's a highly creative series with an interesting twist to the classic interpretations of good and evil that i'm used to. i especially love how there are are mythical creatures in here, other than just angels, like nymphs!

Love the characters of this series!! I actually started this series thinking i would not like it, but ended up really enjoying the entire thing. The art caught my attention, but the story kept me going.

Great manga series to read. I loved reading this tale of the runaway princess of heaven. The four guardians of heaven and their work on the earth as well as finding the princess of heaven and fighting bad guys

Ehh it was ok

Very cute drawings

Kind of hard to follow sometimes like the story doesn't quite fit together sometimes.

Like how are Dong-Young and Ah-Hin friends since childhood? How did they meet?

Lil confusing :/

Gender-bending plus angels and demons! This Korean manhwa is about the princess of heaven running away to avoid her arranged marriage to the king of hell. What better way to hide out than pretending to be a boy? The comedy actually made me smile. Great art, too!
Sometimes very confusing when it comes to paneling and story telling. I like the setting and the characters, but all in all, I've read better gender bender stories.
(Maybe it's less confusing for those who have read Demon Diary?)

Shelves: 2007r3dbo0kz
the story line is interesting in that its complex and have many characters. although the character's names are very hard to remember. I really enjoy the art in it though. like for all graphic novels, i usually read for the art but if the story line is good too, i don't mind ^-^

This was my first manwha that i've read and I absolutely fell in love. The story line is interesting and the characters makes you want to keep laughing.

I really like this manga, but it was slightly dry. Plus, the names get very confusing. I'm like, wait, who's who? Otherwise, this is a nice manga to kill the time.
