If you appreciate drama, and liked the basic premise of one manga/manhwa, I think you will like the other. 

Both deal with an orphan girl, who through various circumstances ends up at a 19th century English public school.  One is at a school for girls, another at a school for boys.  These are not comedies, but well drawn, well written character studies. 

These are both among my favorite stories and stand out from the field of generic high school romances which Shoujo is littered with.  Not that I don't enjoy a good example of those too :)

A dark ambience envelops these two tragic series about an orphaned girl who is forced to lie and infiltrate a political/academic institution as she is manipulated by those who desire power.  Our protagonist is not a typical cheery shoujo lead. Burdened by the secrets she holds and conflicted by her loyalties, our protagonist is a girl struggling to survive the tightrope-like situation she's been thrust into.  

Every chapter is laden with a pervading sense of doom and beautifully atmospheric art.  The storytelling is haunting and dream-like at times, breathless and full of twists and turns at others. Thought-provoking, complex stories with obsession, betrayal and childhood trauma, Dokuhime and Savage Garden dial up the tension and tragedy into a rollercoast ride of emotions that leaves you still wanting more by the bitter end.  You end up feeling for the characters who have become acquainted with tragedy and misery as youths. 

Mysterious, dark and heartwrenching, Savage Garden and Dokuhime pull you into their worlds and don't let up until the very last page.
