If you like weak and pathetic MC who is trying to run away from engagement but doesn't think of become strong and revenge on slag jerk Prince who destroyed her family and executed her when she help him in throne

In first chance, she was abused, beaten, killed by jerk and slag Prince.

In second chance, she still marry him, end up abused by slag a***ole prince. She forgive him. They end up togethers. He is ml

This is Korean novel so it's normal that anyone jerk, killer, slag, scum and rapist can... more>> be male lead. They were like above who do anyhing as they please, they still get happy ending and MC is like below who endure abusing, still get bad ending if they give bad impressive to character. Korean MC is so weak, useless, stupid. They should be like Chinese MC who become strong, ruthless, cold to protect herself and her family from slag ex husband and fate. <<less

So this is a really interesting plot with a dark setting. The MC is executed and finds herself age 10 again, basically before she married that disgusting waste of space prince. There isn't much plot development in the first three chapters, with it just giving readers a recap on how the situation led up to her death and eventual time travel. From the summary alone readers can easily understand that this won't be the happiest ride to get on. And this is just a spoiler for anyone sensitive rape situations.... more>> It doesn't say it in the tags, but there will be rape scenes in the third three chapters, so if you absolutely hate novels with scenes like that I suggest you not read this.

And this is just a spoiler for anyone sensitive to rape situations.

It doesn't say it in the tags, but there will be rape scenes in the third three chapters, so if you absolutely hate novels with scenes like that I suggest you not read this.


Continuing on, the prince is extremely stupid and annoying. Despite "falling in love" with the classic Asian girl from another world (a.k.a. Our reality) he still marries his fiance from birth, the MC, as the second wife. Now, this is where things get complicated (not that it wasn't before)

He basically treats the MC like **** and forces her to take the work load of the Empress despite her not being the Empress (**** move). Whenever Gina (the girl from another world) cries he always interprets it as the MC's fault and punishes her by slapping her or physically assaulting her. Basically, he's an absolute **** who has done a lot of heinous crimes against the MC. (I hope he dies in a fire). So when the MC goes back in time, she does her very best to prepare for the future and get out of the ridiculous engagement. The problem is that she formed a trauma from her past experience with the prince and, now, whenever she is in close proximity to him she freezes up and can't verbally say anything. This gives the stupid prince the impression that she's arrogant and cold, leading him to hate her even more.


Quite frankly the entire situation is really stupid and I hope the MC gets out of the engagement with the prince and finds a real man who isn't an absolute moron. I do NOT want a reconciliation between the two because what the prince did in the previous life was unforgivable. I don't care if his "past crimes belonged to another him" and that he's technically "innocent of the crimes" he should suffer a hundred lifetimes for his stupid actions. Basically, I hope the prince burns in a fire and isn't the ML in this story.

As for advice on reading this novel, I find it interesting and I do recommend you try it and form your own opinions on the story. So far they haven't uploaded much with it only reaching one entire chapter and the start of a second chapter. If you don't really want to wait for a long time for this story to finish being translated, I wouldn't recommend reading this. <<less

Aristia is a interesting character. Unfortunately the author seems determined to pair her up with her future rapist and the person who ordered her death, while handwaving how much of a complete ass the ML has been.

The only thing I want to say for this novel is:

- Get the Prince and that b***h to hell

- Damn the deity (in the novel)

- Damn the Author

I don't know why would the author get the MC and the Prince together despite what that jerk of a Prince done to the MC. Don't give me that "he still haven't done anything" ****! DAMN AUTHOR!

This novel made me so angry I made an account just so I could give it 1 star. The ML can repent his whole entire second life and I will never, ever forgive him for what he did to the protagonist during their first life. I can't believe she didn't even try to get revenge, he literally ruined everything for her over the pettiest jealousy on earth (don't believe people who said he actually had complex and deep reasons) and she ... more>>

still forgives him and falls in love with him at the end?

Don't make me laugh. Even a rat has more self respect. <<less

To be fair, I don't think most of the reviewers on here went far besides chapter one. It's uncomfortable and perhaps misleading, especially since there is only one chapter available on here. Luckily for me, I came across the webtoon by chance. And it's pretty good.

The protagonist does not stick with the prince. In fact, from what I seen she has difficulty associating with him and want to stay uninvolved with him as much as possible. Instead, she creates a new path for herself to become the next heir of... more>> her noble family-- as a knight. There seems to be a collection of bachelors that will chase after her of their young prepubescent ages.

Furthermore, there seems to be a large focus on her relationship with her father, now that she understands in the life prior that he was undoubtly a caring man.

She has a classic sob story that luckily for her-- won't happen again.

I would def read past a certain amount of chapter to see what it is fully capable of. <<less

A lot of people seemed to have read spoilers first or after reading the first 2 chapters, because they make it seem as though this story is a shallow one where the MC is an idiot and the ML is a jerk both in the first and second lives.

This is not a shallow story. Although the MC does end up with the ML who treated her badly, it's after a lot of plot and a looong time. For reference, the MC has PTSD and is terrified of the ML in... more>> the beginning, and for the most part lives her life trying to avoid him and is happy with other people she has become friends with. (At 60 manwha chapters she's interacted with him like 5 times, all of which were 1-2 chapters) The PTSD slowly changes, and from what I've heard the ML learns about what he did and there is an entire arc of him regretting, plus the psychology of the ML is pretty interesting and complex and while it doesn't really excuse him for what he did, he also wasn't a jerk in his first life just because he was spoiled or born like that.

Granted, this I don't know Korean and I haven't read the novel, and have only read up to the translated manwha, which as of this review is ~Ch. 60, but I have gotten spoilers from other people.

Plot 9/10 - The base plot isn't overwhelmingly outstanding or anything, as I have seen the "my first life was terrible, and since I have a second chance I'll make it better." But there is a lot of other things that make it interesting and while super complex, is intricate enough to keep the reader interested and is realistic

  • The MC has PTSD after her first life and is frozen in fear first time meeting the prince in 2nd life, which I don't see often
  • The first person the MC talks about her first life to doesn't believe her, which is heartbreaking for the readers but realistically makes sense. Additionally, the problem isn't solved immediately and the two reconcile slowly, over a matter of years and a lot of letter exchanging
  • MC struggles with herself, as she aims to become the heiress of her family and become a swordswoman. However, she has a weak body, and is constantly pushing herself to learn the sword quickly as time feels short to her and various events with the prince that she is now scared of are approaching
  • Other events that I can't describe in detail as they have yet to appear in the manhwa and I've only heard spoilers, but there is a lot of plot

Character development: 10/10 There are characters beyond the scope of the MC and ML, and all of the characters are incredibly well developed. Throughout the story hints are given as the character backgrounds, and you can understand how a character grew up and why they are the people they are now. The spoiler explains the psychology of 3 male characters, including the ML, who appear frequently and are important to the story.

  • Ruve, the ML. (First life) He has always been compared to the MC since childhood and dislikes her to a small extent because of this. He later grows to hate her because her priority is responsibility and she never acts selfish, so that she seems cold and inhuman. Another major fact is that Ruve was extremely close to MC's mother and was there when she died. The MC doesn't really remember her mother, but Ruve thought she just didn't care. Basically, he thought she was cold, unfeeling, inhumane, and even ruthless. (Second life) because MC has PTSD, she is terrified stiff when she meets Ruve and because of this, the initial dislike due to comparison turns to curiosity, and you can see how he changes from first meeting to other meetings, and how he cares about her more as time goes on.
  • Allendis (my personal fave) - He is also a noble kid and approaches MC first, and is kind, cute, sweet, funny, and really caring to Tia. He cherishes her a lot. However, it is implied that this is only towards her, and that to others he is cold, or even aggressive. Hints show that Allendis grew up in a bad environment, where his father considered him a tool and typically disregarded him, and his mother cared more about his brother. It can be assumed that as a child, he tried hard to get his parents attention, including misbehaving, and now has a cynical view. The MC is the first who genuinely cares about him and now is his emotional base, and the amount he cares for her can easily become dangerous. (The MC is not a Mary Sue though)
  • Carsein - he meets her later on, and is a cheerful, pure boy who is a bit spoiled. Their first meeting is cute, but he treats her badly after realizing she is Ruve's fiance. They become friends later though, and she makes him less spoiled, I guess I'd say? And teases him a lot. His background isn't nearly as complex, but definitely shows how people grow up depending on their environment. He is the 2nd son of a loving noble family, hence why he is a bit spoiled and is probably cheerful partly to the fact that it is a family of knights so he does sports and may be friends with various knights. It's not a politics heavy family, so he grows up to be more honest.

Please give the story a chance whether it's the novel or manhwa because it is really interesting and well-written, and time is taken to develop the story and characters. <<less

Just finished chapter 53 in manhwa and I am crying here. I think I understood how powerless is she and how difficult for her to avoid her fate.

With that kind of past, I think everyone will get broken like that. She is really strong and determined.

The story is going pretty well. There are some mysteries about her past and his mother. I am really curious about it.

I tried reading raw one but couldn't make sense of it. Though the story seems to take her back to the time when her father was still alive and she was still young. She had no clue as to why she time traveled back. Also the story here gives us a over view of how things first started but she doesn't go into details on who caused it so far besides the jerk that she liked that was the king.

So. With such a short translation of the novel, people may no understand it very clearly. I you can, I suggest you read the Manhwa (If you haven't) to know more. I'm pretty sure that the English Translation of the Manhwa has gone a bit further now?

So, a small summary of me maybe this:

Arisitia was supposed to marry the crown prince of the kingdom. However, due to the appearance of a mysterious girl whom where she came from is a mystery, and her supposed to be husband married the mysterious girl instead.

... more>> After a series of misunderstandings, tragic events and abuse happening to Arisitia, she was sentenced to death for attempting murder on the Emperor (That ****ass you guys can call, but he's my bae). After being excecuted, Arisitia wakes up another time to find out that she has traversed back in time to when she was young. After setting on a trip to a sacred place, she finds out vaguely the reason she's been reborn. From that on, she declared to herself that she would become stronger and to not mingle with the royalty. But it seems like she can't bring herself to hate the Prince.

For me, this was quite a nice story. I loved the interactions between Tia and her beloved father! Her interactions with other people was nice to see as well. The Prince may be a ****ass, su**er or a slag you may call, but he's actually my favorite male character in this Novel/Manhwa. Reasons include:

  • I'm a su**er for blue haired male characters, damn it.
  • His growth as a character, he grew up to actually cares for Tia,

    heck he even calls people when Tia had a mental breakdown (The reason was because of fear of the said guy), though that only appears in the raw Manhwa]
