    Amazing!!

    I love all types of manga and manwha, as do many of my friends. One of my friends started reading Goong and got the rest of us hooked! It is at times funny, sad, and heart wrenching. The main characters are awesome and the drawings are also very well done. If you liked the drama, I think you will like this even better as it goes into greater character depth and background for each of the main and supporting characters.

    Addicted!!!!!!

    From what I've seen from the Korean Drama, Goong ('Palace' in Korean, but called 'Princess Hours' in the drama) I think this will be REALLY good. (I'm addicted to the T.V drama!) The prince is smooth, cool, and cold while the girl is really spunky and sweet. I hope I'll like the manga as much as the drama. Watch 'Princess Hours!' Or Goong.

    fantastic series and a must-read/buy!

    I've watched the series and read all of the graphic novels out so far in korean (11 or so, i think)...the series is fantastic and the plot line is amazing. the arwork is phenomenal and wow. I myself am Korean, so it was definitely a plus to see a different type of Korea, even if it was an entriely 'what-if' situation.

    Not a review, a question.

    What exactly happens in this book?? The editorial wasn't helpful at all. So, a high school girl is engaged to a prince. The prince is not... good. He's terrible. That's all I got outta the review.

    Goong: An Awesome Manga

    This manga is amazing, and I am so excited that it's coming out into the English market. The storyline and the characters, I think, are really fantastic and totally win you over. Overall, Goong is counted among my favorite manga--and I've read a lot. It's wonderful entertainment.
