Princess Villainess

Princess Villainess

Who wouldn't want to be a princess? You’d have maids at your beck and call, riches to indulge even your most unnecessary wants, and a dashing young prince who’d charm your socks off. But what if you became the villainess of a story? One day, Jae-eun wakes up as Sheilia Aidenrose, the notoriously cruel princess of “The Rose of Isonia.” As she knows all too well of Sheilia’s gruesome end (the novel was written by her sister, after all), Jae-eun is determined to take matters into her own hands. She won’t let Sheilia’s fate be dictated by the original novel! Little does she know that this means she’ll change the fates of all those involved, even that of the most minor characters...

The Hero Proposed to Me (Promo)

The Hero Proposed to Me (Promo)

Male lead, why do you propose to the villainess and not the heroine? Having the strongest man in the empire as father, the most beautiful woman as mother and three arrogant brothers; there were beauty, power and irreducible wealth no matter how much you use it. I came to possess the villainess who had everything in the novel, ‘Siel Valentine’. In the original story, the heroine was the adopted sister of Siel. In the original story, Siel had an unrequited love for the prince who chose her sister. Blinded by jealousy, Siel bullied the heroine and so was executed in the hands of the male lead prince.
