Five years after the mysterious disappearance of the nation's fourth prince, a statement is issued, demanding that any boy found using his name is reported to the authorities. Thus, a manhunt begins for those named Wolfgang.

Wolfgang Goldenleonard is well aware of his identity, and he knows that the authorities are still looking for him. He also knows that they mean to end his life. In hiding since the death of his mother, the prince has fostered a bond with the orphans of the streets. However, after threats to them are made, Wolfgang is forced to reveal himself. With his identity publicly revealed, Wolfgang is taken to the home of his tyrannical father.

At his father's palace, Wolfgang retains his hatred for the man who gave him life. He refuses to behave as befitting of a Goldenleonard prince and breaks every rule he possibly can. He is often reminded that he is never to covet the king's possessions, but through his rebellious spirit and fiery nature, he has already caught the eyes of the king's favorite catamite, Shin Soohyuk.

Shin sees Wolfgang as a force for change, the spark that may just light the fires of rebellion. And with the promise of granting Shin's freedom, Wolfgang agrees to become his pawn.

“King’s Maker” first drew me in with its bright & shiny artstyle. The story is about a lost prince returning to avenge the people that we loves and to correct the wrongs of his father. What can I say, this story has everything that I look for in a medieval drama:

Story (8/10)
✅ adorable romance = but at the same time it doesn’t overwhelm the plot.
✅ intriguing revenge plot = right when you think that it's "by the numbers" they throw a curve-ball at you.

Art (10/10)
✅ Colorful but Intimidating = to capture the dazzling & grandiose appearance that covers-up the twisted power.

Character (8/10)

The strongest point of King's Maker is probably it's story line, which is cliché yet unique. Who wouldn't enjoy some drama around the throne? But this time there are no maids or high-born ladies dangling around the main prince, but the king's boytoy. He is also the one who is determined to make the said prince king, instead of some power-hungry mom.
The story is well-paced with it's ups (climaxes/highlights) and downs (relaxing/funny moments). The writer is able to tell the story without rushing it in 37 chapters, and make the reader hold their breath every page.

The story starts with Wolfgang Goldenleonard, the 4th prince read more

Look, I don't normally write reviews or rate anything a 10. But King's maker definitely deserves it. Yes it's not some authentic masterpiece that blows away your mind, but it's very close to that.

At first I refused to read King's maker since I thought it was just another annoying BL manhwa without any context or plot to it. But nevertheless I gave it a chance after eyeing it for a bit and boy I did not expect what was about to be shoved in my face. (This is a pretty long review btw)

Let's start with the story.

Chapter 23 and 24 killed this piece of work so hard. I don't even know how to explain this, but I'll try:
I'll go straight to the point, its not about just being fucked up. I've read and seen worse, but its so poorly written that I felt disgusted and very uneasy. Without getting into specifics, King is a pedo and he has a particular chamber for his doings with his children harem.
Its a fucked up place, full of toys for children, drugs and wine that he offers to his victims. There is obviously rape - and extreme violence afterwards with read more
