Goong (Manga) add (All reviews)
AeoP (All reviews)
Goong puts an interesting spin on the "historical" type drama. This hybrid of the modern world with a historical monarchy focuses on The Palace and the royal family within. However, we also get to witness everyday life such as school life as well. Many elements are typical of shoujo manga, including the main characters' interactions, but the character development and the story builds into very worthwhile drama. Also, interactions between the feisty female lead and the cold-hearted male lead add a nice touch of comedy.

Goong also features beautiful art. From the scenery of the palace, to the clothing worn, there is wonderful detail all throughout the story.

Best of all. Goong is still ongoing, and I expect even greater thing in the coming chapters.
