Golden Time (Ryu Hyang)

The hit series “Light and Shadow” continues with “Golden Time,” a new adventure that follows Alex, the eldest son of Duchess Edna and Duke Eli, as he sets out to experience the world on his own. While gathering his travel companions, Alex feels strangely drawn to a shabby young boy named Kenny, not realizing that they’ve met before. That’s because Kenny is actually Yessica Solveg, the second princess of the Kingdom of Northian… and fiancée to their future king, the violent Duke Frederick. With her identity hidden, the two royals form a bond. But when budding love could ignite the flames of war, will this reunion cause more pain than bliss?

Cliche flags before death, plot holes enough to cover an ocean, no seroius situations even in grave matters and idiotic prince who does not seem to learn from his past mistakes.  Plot Armor is too strong for mc and fmc and doesnt shy away from showing it.  What makes a good action scene? if you watched vinland saga or good action you know its not something stupid as thinking during a battle, having a monlogue with other charchters etc but pure action, skill and technique. Unfortunetly here its purely talk non stop during action, even jokes, gages etc in most dangerous and serious sitations that you feel no tension and no emtion towards the time stop that is happening mid battle. This in itself ruinds every battle.  Whats worse is knowing and letting your vessels harm your people and family al lbecause you dont have concrete proof, whats proof enough if the people already hate the rigning lord? its quite idiotic. 60+ chapters without a single vilain being punished. Pacing wise it feels like the first 100 chapters are just a monolgue with how slow the story is progressing.  The story is simple yet confusing, you well never know who is trully the king or queen, which child hails from what and how one is queen etc.  The prince doesnt learn from his mistakes or advise that is given to him yet is protrayed as someone who listens to advise and learns from his mistake which shows the author doesnt really understand the concept himself.  Overall its iffy, the story is bad full of plot holes that you'd think this is completely ridiculous,, art is average and charchters dont have enough depth and richouness, overall its a 5/10 and would be recommended for someone who has alot of time and nothing better to read. 


Story : Well, it's made by the maker of "Light and Shadow" so i expected so much of this manwha.. AND IT EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. So far the story is soooo good, and the pacing are much more nicer than light and shadow (i think). And the backstory of the characters are shown right at the start, so we as the readers can feel more attached to them ^^. But tbh it kinda sucks w all the politics (even tho it's not as complicated as other political mahwas) bcs ngl i suck at remembering fictional countries :" and i keep forgetring abt them lmao. But ig it's to be expected since the ML is a soon-to-be king lol, not gonna complain too much abt it. Art : If you've read light and shadow ofc u'll be super familiar w the artstyle. And imo the artstyle is beautiful in its own way, but ofc there are vound to be some people who doesnt like artstyle like this... ofc everyone are free to think whatever they want abt the artstyle. But imo the artstyle is ok tho ^^ Characters : I think the characters here are so much better than "light and shadow" ^^. That doesn't mean i dont like the characters in the prequel, theyre soooo loveable, and even i fell in love w all the side characters lmao. And honestly i cant wait to see more loveable side characters and my beloved side characters' comebacks here :3. And now lets talk abt the MC and ML. They both are kinda similar w "light and shadow"'s cp lmao. Yes, we love stoneheaded couple, and myb the author rlly does have a knack for stoneheaded couple lolololol. The FL here is better than last FL imo, she just felt more realistic for me. And as for the ML.. well what can i say? I LOVE HIM SO MUCH. I can finally see my their baby grown up and he's grew wonderfully too :") im sooo proud... Should you read this? YESSS 10000% RECOMMENDED! And i recommend to read "Light and Shadow" first though, JUST SO YOU KNOW THE FEELING OF SEEING THE ML GROW UP-
