Oh, wow....
The artwork is beyond stunning. I have read soo many comic books/ graphic novels/ manga and yet that one surprised me. I was prepared for a lighter read- I honestly didn't expect the story to be so intriguing and complex.
Great dialogues and characters- call me crazy, but for some reason it reminds me of Captive Prince.
It has one of the most memorable chapters I have read/seen, where the two main characters didn't even exchange a word between each other, and yet I was overflowing wit
Okay im not even being dramatic this is literally one of the best things i've read all year including novels/webcomis/manga

The art is so beautiful and well drawn to start off, at first i doubted it but as the story progressed it came out so AMAZING. It is still ongoing and the most recent chapter;;; OH BOI

No esperaba para nada que la trama se pusiera tan emocionante, estoy felizmente sorprendida. El arte no me termina de cuajar, pero igual es agradable.

Holy shit. That was fucking amazing.

I never really liked monarchy themed anything... but this manhwa became one of those exceptions.

First of all, it’s fucking obvious how much work the author and the artist have exerted to achieve such phenomenal art. The color palette and the details on every character and scene... is just so fucking beautiful.

I won’t dwell much on the plot, we all know it’s good. But the pacing of the story— I think the last few chapters were a bit rushed. I’ve been w
This is the kind of book that even though it doesn't strike you in the face, it creeps up on you and you ended up giving it 4.5 stars (rounded up to 5) coz there's barely anything to critique about and you just appreciate it so much.

Gorgeous art, well-done world-building, nice character design, intricate plot, and everything in between. There isn't much romance but honestly, it's good as it is now. I totally have no problem with this series so far. But it's still not in my shelf-of-fame coz it h

This webtoon was one of the very best i've ever read, if not the best ever.
The story is so good, and it just devlopped smoothly showing the character growth with every character, it wasnt rush and neither slow, the path was perfect to feel every emotion and just dive in it.
I love the romance that was just very short in it but very VERY expressive, and actually I can not wait for the second the season, hopefully Haga and Ji Young wont give on us and keep their promise, because this NEED to be con

the second part is going to be so good!!!!! i don't know what i'm going to do in the meantime
5 Stars.

This webcomic cleared my skin and watered my crops. It could be described as a cross between Game of Thrones and Captive Prince - there's plenty of tension, great dialogue, stunning scenery, scheming and political maneuvering, plot twists, shocking deaths and content that makes you want to both cry and scream. I absolutely adored it.

The artwork is STUNNING - never before have I pored over frames of a comic so intently. After reading the first three chapters I didn't hesitate to purchase

OMG. Can I just say the art for this is so Gorgeous, Regal, Beautiful, Amazing, and all synonyms. I don't think I've Ever seen anything so BEAUTIFUL in my life!! But of course, the art isn't the only thing very neat about this webcomic. The story follows Wolfgang, son of the current king and someone thought to have been dead (he was in hiding in the slums), who has come back to the palace after a dangerous runin with the palace guards. Even though he's at the palace, nobody really takes him seri ...more
