I often read that this drama was too long, and I can easily understand why. But to me, the length of this drama has its place and its reason. It let the characters evolve slowly in a subtle and almost natural way. We get to perfectly understand the too leads. It also permit for their relationship to be more complicated that a simple "why don't you love me, I love you, even read more if at first I hated you!".

The story is actually very original, there is place for cuteness, drama, comedy, a great second female lead, and beautiful couple scenes. What's not to love ?

I gave a 9 in acting because I beleive the second male lead lacked nuance on his part, but the two leads are doing an amazing job.

Anyway it's a good drama, so go watch it ^^ lol !

I really liked this drama. I loved the historical placement in a more present time. Seeing the value placed on maintaining that history was exciting to watch. The actors/actresses made the story come to life for me. It made me want to be a princess. I will watch this drama again b/c it was a very heartwarming story about two ppl that learn to love each other. I suggest others watch it read more b/c I believe that they will enjoy it as much as I have.

This drama is also about a king in modern days who was engaged to a person he didn't like at first but came to love in the end, so if u like Goong I totally recommend the King2Hearts

    It's a good drama. The plot is cute, although a little dragging at times. I think the series could have been shortened a little and it would have been better. I really liked the love square, though. As a Yoon Eun Hye fan, I enjoyed seeing her so young and cute :)

    YUL is a little bit nicer in the the drama than in the manhwa.....In the manhwa,Yul is manupulative,self-centered and insane....

    Though the "first night" scene is cute

    she is silly and lacks pride...he's arrogant, rude and I don't think they have much chemistry....and the second male leader I think is not attractive at all (he's not handsome, nor smart, nor funny...) so there's not any "competition" between him and the prince...It wasn't that bad, but wasn't good either, sorry.

    Oh god.
    This could have been a good drama. Not earth-shattering, but still good. But common...! All these dirty, dirty plot moves to create moar drama!!1! are really too much for me (maybe just seen it too many times, so might be digestible for the fresher audience). For instance:

    A and B are a couple. B and C *were* a couple at one point. A is aware of B and C's past. A is secretly listening to a conversation between B anc C. B talk about their past plans and dreams (together with C that is). A is hurt and runs away, not listening to the end. ...And in that moment B continues saying that this is no longer true, because they have A. A and B meet again, they argue, no one explains anything. Bam! Drama.

    I just can't handle that crap anymore. >_<

      It's not a spoiler. It's a cliché.

    I hope the Crown Prince changes a lot during the drama, because I dont like him at all. Zero simpathy.

    Tbh, I watched all of it the first time and loved it. I went back for a 2nd and 3rd watch and thought they could have made it a little bit shorter, maybe 16-18 eps instead, because I found myself skipping episodes.
