    Another sad one Chae Kyung and Shin are apart The few times they see each other, they are mean to each other to help each other move on Though Chae Kyung ismean, I ll be honest Shin kept trying to hold out his hand, and reach to Chae Kyung, and each time, her judgment overcame her heart and she shut him down The only good part is that they both still miss each other terrible, and get super jealous when they hear about the other one spending time with someone else They obviously sti Another sad one Chae Kyung and Shin are apart The few times they see each other, they are mean to each other to help each other move on Though Chae Kyung ismean, I ll be honest Shin kept trying to hold out his hand, and reach to Chae Kyung, and each time, her judgment overcame her heart and she shut him down The only good part is that they both still miss each other terrible, and get super jealous when they hear about the other one spending time with someone else They obviously still love each other I m glad they let time pass swiftly, and didn t drag us through the months It s enough to tell me that it s been a year, and Chae Kyung and Shin still want to be together, even though they can t Shin is investigating the divorce with renewed vigor, and it doesn t seem like he s planning on stopping until he finds out.I just don t get what Shin is doing with Hyo Rin Or actually, I don t get what Hyo Rin is doing with Shin Obviously, Shin s doing his best to do what he thinks he has to to move on, but it s obvious that he still loves Chae Kyung He even says to Hyo Rin, despite his promises on their engagement blech , he still hasn t forgotten Chae Kyung one bit And instead of saying, I deserve better than this, she says, I can be patient, and just decides to wait indefinitely until Shin can move on And as much as I dislike her, I do think she deserves better.I still find Mi Roo infinitely annoying, but she has one thing going for her she wants to get Chae Kyung and Shin back together It s not even that important that her reasons for wanting to do so are entirely for herself I will support her as long as she s supporting Chae Kyung and Shin It was a great idea roping in Chae Jun, as well, who is eager to help, since he would potentially get to be with Hyo Rin in this crazy equation I ve now caught up with as many volumes as are available to me Hopefully they will be published quickly, because I am in suspense now that the manga has veered away from the drama I need to know what happens next

    As much as the last volume was so painful to read, I loved the execution of the story This volumenot so much It s dripping with angst, and while I like some well done emotional torment, I have become so frustrated and Chae Kyung s inability to do anything about her situation I know that she truly can t change anything at this point, but booting Yul from her presence would be a good start He s as venomous as a snake with his poisonous words used to try to tilt Chae Kyung s affections from As much as the last volume was so painful to read, I loved the execution of the story This volumenot so much It s dripping with angst, and while I like some well done emotional torment, I have become so frustrated and Chae Kyung s inability to do anything about her situation I know that she truly can t change anything at this point, but booting Yul from her presence would be a good start He s as venomous as a snake with his poisonous words used to try to tilt Chae Kyung s affections from Shin to himself.Shin is tragic and sweet in this volume He can t shake his feelings for Chae Kyung, even when he tries to mask them by turning to Hyo Rin and by going through the motions of his duties as the crown prince And, now that he has heard rumor that his divorce was the price to pay for blackmail, the revelation of who has been behind it all should shortly come to light The events in this volume were necessary to paint the life that Shin and Chae Kyung now live being a part from each other But, as Shin s mother continues to dig into the scandal framing Shin during his trip abroad over a year ago, and as Shin continue to dig into why he was forced to divorce the love of his life, the revelations to come will make this volume worth all the angst At least, I hope so
