For her sake, he would sacrifice anything...

While volunteering in Nepal, a Korean medical student named Sangmin Han encounters the beautiful yet tragic Sita. Previously, she was a Kumari—a prepubescent girl worshipped as the vessel of a goddess. But she has since been forsaken as a Kumari, and cast out from society. Falling in love, they marry and move to Korea, but their blissful love is short-lived; Sita dies only a year later.

Losing the woman dearest to him, Sangmin desperately begs the gods to bring Sita back. His prayers are answered but in exchange for a sacrifice, and he awakens in the streets of Nepal. However, something is amiss—his body has suddenly aged, and standing in front of him is a young Sita, with no memory of him.

Through two lovers bound together by a destiny running deeper than it first appears, For the Sake of Sita is the story of Sita growing up as a Kumari, and Sangmin's tribulations in trying to avert her terrible fate.

"Would you give up your -"

The above sentence is one you will see a few times in this manhwa. You'll understand its significance when you read it.

For the Sake of Sita's Sita is partly based on the Sita who is the central female character of the Hindu epic Ramayana. I can't say anything about the accuracy of the portrayal of the Sita in this manhwa, it would be best to keep in mind that this is not a super accurate portrayal and that they are quite different in their portrayals.

Simply put, this is a love story. Not a grand one spanning centuries or decades read more
