Not reccomended, not entertaining, too many uneccesary sub-plots, no development, repetative nature of stories just in different fashion, uninteresting characters, no romance at all, stupidly written plot holes all over, you probably wont feel any emotion reading this other than being irritated by the characters. 

Dissapointed, it felt like there are a lot of uneccesary things goin on. Sure the plot is kinda fresh for me, this is the first royalty-romance manhwa where the female lead is hiding her sons identity, but at the same time it failed to be entertaining in any way. It's good that the author want to spin the concept a little to be fresh and unique, but the way he written it isnt interesting enough to be good although somewhat unique. here are also the things i hated about it, first of all the reason why they fell apart is because of miscommunication, how the hell did two people who grew up together for so long had a problem such as miscommunication, it felt stupid, both of them who grew up for so many years together just fell because the male lead cannot ask a simple question, and the female lead is stupid enough not the xplain to the person whom she loves for so many years about the sittuation or even ask about what is happening, she just gone with it. Then after 6 years of no contact the ML just suddenly tries to force the female lead to stay in his house and be overall possesive of her, like 6 years of neglect didnt happened, guy cant even explain why he is doing it, for a guy and a emperor you would expect the emperor to be straightforward and smart but he just stupid....  Second, there are a lot of sidetrack which is very uninteresting and sidetracks that doesnt help furthur the story in a way other than putting small detail of development which can easily be put in a more interesting manner, for example in the 20th chapter or so the plot of an epedemic in a village happening, third there is too much going on and everything is happening all at once, the politics happening in the background, assasinations, MC hiding her child's origin, her grandfather, his family and father, irritating characters chasing the male lead, the male leads assistant trying to figure out the female leads intention and so on, enough so that you forgot that its a romance manhwa, in fact there is no romance in this manhwa, its so subtle that you cant even say its romance right now....

Honestly i have more bad things to say about this manhwa but i realized how bent up i am in this and felt stupid so im stopping here, OVERALL dont reccomend, dropped it already, nothing interesting or entertaining about this manhwa in any shape or form.

I found this one, it caught my attention so i gave it a try and i liked it and the art is beautiful. i enjoyed reading it! I'll also read the novel 

I've been trying to find some good manhwas to read and thankfully i found some but i only lasted until 20 chapters and  dropped them because... i don't know, i'm not really enjoying it. (probably because i read too much villainess manhwa so i got tired of it) I'll continue reading them not now but soon.

It's great that i found this one, i have something to enjoy reading again.

Alright, time for another manhwa review! And after you guys read this review, you're probably gonna be hating on me lol. I know I'm only on Chapter 1 so far but this manhwa has so much potential! But there is something that is stopping me from ranking it up to a perfect score. Can you guess why? Well first off, I just want to say that I cannot tell you how much I despise the sh*tty ML. To me, he's a real villain rather than ML. He betrayed the poor FL and abused his power to convict her in a wrong way even though she did nothing wrong. Like who the f*ck does that?!! WHO?!! Anyways, the child is cute and I extremely love the FL. She is always confident and determined, even when she is in trouble. Overall, this story is so good but I would hold off on recommending this one to you guys if you despise cruel MLs by just a little bit. Almost perfect but not really. Sorry!


Update (Reviewed at Chapter 21): I thought that the ML had redeeming qualities as I continued reading but I was wrong. His redeeming qualities are lackluster and he hasn't changed one bit. However, the story has changed quite a lot. I loved the inventiveness in this manhwa and I don't care if anyone will hate me on this review, it's my opinion and y'all are welcome to them. What was supposed to be an almost perfect manhwa turned into one of my most surprising favourites of all time!

Update 2: So a lot of people said that this manhwa started to become more boring and disconcerting after Chapter 28 but I'll give you guys a more full in depth review after reading chapter 28 and I'll see if this manhwa is still worth the read or not.

Update 3: It's safe to say that I'll keep going because I've just finished Chapter 28. So, I didn't hate it but the fact that there is way too many events happening that is bringing more stress to the FL's plate is just so annoying and roughly confusing. Likewise, I'll still continue this because I think that this manhwa still has a lot of potential. But I'm so glad I passed that chapter because it's possibly the point where most people would drop this manhwa.

I strongly don't recommend this story. 

The issue is the male lead. He is cruel, dull, horrendous, and has a memory of a fish. The story starts with an arranged marriage that is done for after one single night. The female lead was kicked out...just like that. The funny thing is that the 'couple' was in a good relationship - childhood friends. 

The female lead is basically trying to hide their child from him...even tho he is in their fucking faces. He kicked her out without a dime only finding her and imprisoning her again years later because ding ding ding he is not only stupid but incompetent as well. 

These people should not be together. I am serious. They should not end up together. I'd rather die than have this excuse of a human being next to me.

This imaginative man literally made my blood boil in every single chapter. UGH so gross.

The female lead and kid are cute. Other people are nice and's just him that ruins everything. Don't read it. Please.

I hate the male lead, he acts so predatory towards the kid.

Telling him to keep secrets from his mother is such a huge red flag and he acts so entitled toward FL. 

You should never tell kids to keep secrets from their parents unless you think that the parent is a danger to the child.

His actions put the kid at risk and honestly if I would of slapped him or tried to beat him up the moment I knew he took my son.

When he tried to convince her to come to the capital and leave her GRANDFATHER! ONE OF THE ONLY FAMILY MEMBERS SHE HAS LEFT. Because he thought he new better 🙄, that jerk is the one that left her. He had his chance, he let her go, ruining her life and thinks he deserves her.

I dropped it.

Do not recommend.
