He’s the ruler of the country of Roinne; she’s a typical Korean teen, and his 100% perfect girl. For the rich and powerful Jarte, he wants nothing more than to take this girl, Jay, for his own, and together the two begin a tentative, tender relationship. However, Jay and Jarte’s lives will be nothing but simple, as insecurities, assassins and rivals in love stand in the way! Will the two manage to stay happy together?
Honestly at the beginning it was alright, the middle fucked me up and it had me pissed for a while but the ending was nice and cute . This manga is just like an emotional roller coaster but it was kinda enjoyable
This was a very, very dark romance story. It seemed pretty light hearted at first, but the story quickly moved towards very dark themes of "possible" rape, betrayal, revenge, mafias, kidnappings, assasinations, attempted suicide, murder, and violent relationships. The ending was very good, but the story throughout was just a little too dark for my tastes. The entire story is focused on the two main characters romance, and how Jarte deals with his obsessive need to control Jay. Jarte is a king, so the lifestyle that Jay enters into is much different than she's used to, and she is often the target of kidnappings and scandals. It's basically a Cinderella story, but with much darker themes. So if you enjoy Cinderella-style romance and can stomach the dark themes I listed above, then definitely check this out.
Aside from being the first manga I ever opened, it's also the absolute standout.Firstly, the art is positively gorgeous. Wann obviously places a lot of heart into the detail and complexity of the characters and surroundings. This ensures that regions are distinct and the setting is strongly woven to hold the impending action. It all beautifully underlines the delicately torturous emotions that feature as the driving undercurrent to the story. If anyone has even felt a fraction of the trials of complex relationships and the journeys they can take, - granted, we're not all whisked away by royalty into a dangerous world of sumptuous living and people with ulterior motives - but in any case I think that this has a lot to offer anyone with an inkling to explore an intense emotional path with a generally excellently-executed plot and dialogue. It's something of a non-stop ride. There is just enough breathing space between events to keep the reader turning the pages raptly without the consistent dramatic elements 'breaking the camel's back' so to speak. I devoured this series very quickly, and I felt so wonderfully 'full' at the end - it was like a perfectly balanced dish of the sweetest and most delicately poised torment pages can hold.I think it'll take something special to knock this off top-spot in my favourites. I'm curious to see what others have thought of this 11-volume rollercoaster, but it's something that I think I will look forward to re-reading sometime in future. 9.5/10 - a strong one at that
