I've read almost two hundred chapters and i think ive had enough. It's a misogynist's wet dream. You get strong vibes that because she was so cruel to 'lead men on' in her past life, she must endure being abused in her second. I mean, it's so cruel to trick men into falling in love with your beauty and then not put out. right? While the story flows nicely, i dislike most of the characters. The worst of them all is the male lead. F**k that guy.

At the start, the story was actually pretty good. A girl that uses her wits in a world where men are dominant. She sucks up to them at first because, you know, she's a girl, she has no rights. 

I was hoping that later on in the story that she'd actually develop and change the sexism in this society, but no. She didn't really grow up to be the strong female protagonist I wanted her to be.

Personally I thought the art was alright, at the start. However, just like the story, the art got worse for some reason. How does that even HAPPEN?!

Everyone looks like a kid now, even the main character's dad, at least they looked like adult before. Not too mention that the eyes got farther apart, making them look stupid.

Nothing was special about any of the characters, prettty adequate.

Overall, this manhwa is bland and average. It's like the gum you chew that slowly loses its flavor. I do not recommend reading this manhwa. Don't waste your time.

Maybe I just don't like the misogynistic setting, but I just really dislike it. I dropped it a couple months ago but I'm pretty sure reading over a hundred chapters should be enough to give a review. The MC is always such a pushover and I hate it. The story is so frustrating. She's always holding back. I was genuinely liking it at the start but the things that I used to like got repetitive. The drama got repetitive. When I started reading it, there was already over a hundred chapters. I dont like misogyny as any other person. So I thought there'd be some progress by the 100th chapter (progress with the characters and of course the MC herself). Nope. All that happened is she grew up. Now about the romance. I didn't like it from the start. Why? The first time they met in the other world. The ML is in highschool(?) And the MC is a child. Not even 10 years old. The romance was really frustrating. I didn't really feel "satisfied" when they got all lovey dovey after confessing. Not to mention ML just forgot about her again. No. I'm not reading anymore of this. I just got so sick of it. The art was good I guess. Then it changed(?) I think it was then that I stopped reading the manhwa. That's all. I gave the story a 4 because the problems just kept dragging on. I'm not into that. Happy New Year

for all those who read this, I think we can all agree that it’s story is spectacular.

the plot is really good, it’s about a girl reborn as a princess we’re women are nothing more the tools to produce sons , she tries to win her father (the king) and her brothers affection .

she basically tries to change that worlds view of women.

for those who like a heroine to live in a different world then I totally recommend it

Here we are exposed to a typical senario of a tyranical father with super apathetic princes a girl who climebed from 0 to all .... It was my first manhwa in such a genre and I like the fact that she as a reincarnated lady uses her knowledge to the fullest but honestly after hitting 100th ish  chapter I reached the realization that there is too much drama . The too much BANAL drama . I mean .... it's not that I hate it but after reading XXX amount of manhuas the arcs and dramas in them become VERY predictable. Here I saw no originality in the drama outcome. ( I mean I'd love to debate about it if you don't agree with this ,maybe my mind will change ) And also I believe that presouring the audience for too long is not a good way to keep the readers going . I saw little of comic relief in here . The art was not complex too but not hurtful for the eye . The character were created to be predictable  (I mean it makes sence bc humans like predictability ) but here it was taken to an unpleasant extreme where I had no excitment to continue reading waiting for some unexpected outcome .
