What if all the beautiful palaces which are now only historical relics were actually filled with people?! What if the glamorous royal family still maintained the palace customs?! Welcome to a world where Korea still has the royal family living their lives! Only for this one high school girl, Che-Kyung, this is a tragedy, since she has to marry the prince who apparently is a total bastard!

Next Volume Please!!! Jun 27, 2008
A great introduction to this series. I like So Hee Park's style, especially her chibis. Her SD style is completely unique and funny. I love Chae-Kyung's relationship with her family and the clash of personalities of Chae-Kyung and Prince Shin Lee. I can't wait to read more. I've been waiting a long time for the second volume.
Fantastic Manga! Jan 10, 2007
I have read the first volume and so far I think I am going to love it. The art is captivating and the story has a nice mix of humor and sentiment. Check it out!
The Manhwa, "Palace" was based on ... Dec 31, 2006
This graphic novel shows a promising start for a series that was the basis for the Korean Drama "Palace". The story takes place in an alternate Korea, wherein the monarchy is still present. The Crown Prince Shin finds himself engaged to a commoner Che-Kyung because of an arrangement between their grandfathers. Shin in the beginning offends Che-Kyung, and proposes to his girlfriend Hyo-rin. Hyo-rin rejects Shin saying she wants to be a dancer. Che-Kyung's family is in financial trouble and she finally agrees to the arrangement in order to help her family. Meanwhile, Shin's cousin Prince Yul returns from abroad and he was to have been the Crown Prince if his father, Shin's uncle had not passed away. So begins the tale of how a commoner is taught to become a princess. I really like the relationship between Che-Kyung and her family, I also like the premise that she will be strong enough to shake the foundations of the monarchy. I will definitely continue on to read this series to see how everything unfolds. I however did not like the unfinished and rough style of the drawings and illustrations. I prefer the clean lines of such artists as Yuu Watase, the detail of You Higuri, and the classic figures of Kyoko Hikawa. The story is great so far and I look forward to seeing SoHee Park Polish her illustrations. I mean even Kaori Yuki evolved her drawing style as can be seen by the difference between The Cain Saga and Godchild.
