Completed this today and wow this is one of the first few manhwa I have read that was able to sustain itself without the addition of romance. The characters, their motivations and the overall story comes with this sense of realism that stops it from seeming outlandish and the character dynamics here are great! It does a great job of not simply falling into the tropes prevalent for the genre. Definitely some of the better manhwa I have read and one I would recommend to anyone who likes an understated mystery/thriller and is on the lookout for some great female characters!
woah. I just read what's currently out in english and just... wow. This story is like when a misunderstanding happens. You think you know what's happening and you have all the puzzle pieces but then it turns out that puzzle had a piece of the same shape from a different puzzle and when it's all put together, everything makes so much more sense. I typically don't like sudden plot twists but this is different. I love this story. You can understand some characters you hate. Others are harder to understand but still ok if you keep in mind the time period. The main character is relatable (in my opinion) and also super amiable!
Writing this review after finishing the entire manwha. To be honest, this webtoon was a really refreshing read. For the tags, I would exclude romance because the story doesn't diverge too heavily in the romance genre. I would describe it as a slice of life in a medieval setting. Although it's 80 chapters, there isn't much drama and the story is pretty fast-paced. I love the storyline. The main character is charismatic, mature, and intelligent. It's mostly realistic and explores issues like sexism and commoner's privilege (just a tiny bit). Anyways, the artwork is phenomenial and the characters are portrayed well. Anyways, the ending was a little bittersweet, but I'm glad it ended this way, as I'm a bit tired of reading manwhas that always in the same format. I would recommend this read to anybody who's interested in reading a story with almost no drama and no romance, but instead, about an aspring maid who's dreamed of becoming a writer.
