Under the Cherry Blossoms

The tale of Snow White, re-invented! Learning her stepmother had been trying to kill her for the last ten years, Yi Hwa flees from the palace for her life. She desperately searches for Sa-eon, firmly believing he will help her out... But when she finally finds him, he flat out refuses to take her in, as he has enough of a hard time trying to support his six siblings. No matter how much Yi Hwa pleads with him, Sa-eon's answer is an unwavering "no" - an answer which she, of course, refuses to accept!

One of the few romances that genuinely moved my heart, this is such a down-to-earth story that had me so incredibly invested in the sweet romance. I found myself crying at their wholesome interactions as well as any drama that came their way as I am so emotionally attached.  First of all, I absolutely love how realistic the characters are, the interactions they have and feelings they have are all valid and make sense. The development between the main characters was so natural, it's not forced, it's a genuine love story that developed between two burdened individuals. Each of them has their own circumstances that affected who they are. I've never wanted to see a pair end up happily together more than these two, they truly love each other and it's so apparent that even the younger siblings root for them. However, the fact of their difference in status makes it somewhat of a tragic love story, as you the reader wants to see them all live together as a big family but know it won't be that easy. I personally really love the ML, he is such an amazing hard working brother who really does everything he can for his 6 siblings. Taking on so much burden to do everything he can as he's the oldest sibling but also the "parent-figure" for his 6 other siblings. He works hard to support his family even though they don't have much, always putting his family before himself. FL also works hard to integrate herself into the household and helps as much as she can. Their daily life is so fleshed out, as you the reader can really see the struggles of the day-to-day life of an average family who doesn't have much, only each other.  The story doesn't have anything too crazy going on as it focuses on the life and development of our main characters. I prefer when stories are more directed to this anyways. However, this story isn't drama-free as there is still a plot with plenty of challenges that our characters will need to face. As much as I hate drama and want to see the wholesome-ness, it is essential for the story no matter how bitter I feel :// The art style might I add is so simple yet beautiful. It has a storybook look to it, the art immerses you into the traditional Korean era and I think it matches so well with the story. It's literally a k-drama in art form! Of the many historical romances I've read, this one is up there in my favorites. Taking place in historical Korea, it's filled with so much realistic culture and charm. Overall a superb read that is so incredibly underrated, I'm so glad I found this and gave it a chance. You won't regret reading this, I hope this review made you at least consider it :) PS: CHAPTER 37 HIT SO DIFFERENT YOU DONT UNDERSTAND 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA my heart-
