Recommendations for RubyMaybe!

Well, hello there.

Unfortunately I’m pausing recommendations starting May 2nd, 2020. There has been way too many and I think I have a sizeable inventory now.

Just ignore this. I didn’t want to delete it.

Now, onto the main topic:

I have turned this page into a place for recommendations because well, things turned out that way.

So, if you’ve got something for me, tell me down below and I’ll look into it when I have time. Obviously, I can’t like everything and I may have already seen what you want to recommend to me.

By the way, please, do not recommend anything else from kko page. That app is impossible to navigate. I’m barely holding on with one novel.


P.S.: Unfortunately, this site had gotten a bit bigger than I can manage alone so it’s impossible to reply to all recommendations at this point.  Just know I see them everything.

P.S.S: For recommendations form: go here.

  1. Gracias por subir Lucia, me encantaria que se pidiera leer la novela completa, pero como no se coreano te agradezco mucho que me permitas leerla.

  2. Ngeh… -checking the suggestions project- Don’t like them. Volcanic seems okay but feeling meh. Anymore interesting books? Like maybe second generation of Lucia’s children?

  3. ooh I’d love to see Our House Pet translated~~ I’ve been waiting for it to get translated for a few years now and it seems like a fun rom com but it’s up to you.

  4. I stumbled across your translations and I am soooo thankful I did. The work you do is so appreciated. You bring this entertaining novel to life. Thank you thank you for all the hard work!

  5. Hello, Miss Ruby! Thank you for your translation! And, please, I notice that one option for future project is the translation of “Our House Pet”, could you do it? I’ve been waiting for someone to pick that story.

  6. Miss Ruby is great! miss ruby is (almost)superman! thank you so much for your hard work and your extremely good translation quality! reading is so enjoyable thanks to you, the story is fluffly, sweet, steamy and very interesting with good plot building. Thanks so much for picking this up! as a side note, if you’re done with lucia and want to pick up another one, please consider a korean love story about rebirth please! on novelupdaets, i read the sister’s villain which is pretty good, and in the same genre, i raised an obsessive servant which is also great. But the reader story you mentioned also looks super interesting thank you!

    1. I agree with I raised an obsessive servant! I like the story but sadly it has been dropped ಥ‿ಥ really hope someone will pick it up someone coz heaven knows I’m really waiting for it DX
      Hopefully Miss Ruby will consider to pick it up coz I really like how she translate. It’s clean and easy to read. Also grateful for Miss Ruby for translating Lucia till the end. Looking forward to your next project Miss Rubyyy (≚ᄌ≚)ℒℴѵℯ♡

  7. Hi Miss Ruby! Looking forward to the next chapters of Lucia and starting of your new project. Thanks for translating!! ♡

  8. Thank you for the translations comrade. Your translation is good quality, and makes it easy to understand. I know how much effort can go into finding suitable analogies and phrases that would help make the work easier to understand. I know that there’s a lot of things that may not make sense in English and I appreciate you taking the time to get the meaning as close as possible. Keep up the fantastic work!

  9. Hello translator nim, i’m new here but can i make a suggestion for your next project?can you translate survive as the hero’s wife novel?thank you in advance #bow 😊😊😊

  10. I discovered your website 3 weeks ago and I’m in love with your translations of Lucia!
    Thank you so much for your hard work on this Novel 😍
    If possible, may I also suggest the Hero’s wife novel “양판소 주인공의 아내로 살아남기” as one of your next project? 🙈
    It has the same vibes as Lucia and looks like the story is amazing 😊

  11. Miss Ruby,thank you so for translate this novel i have so mucf fun reading it hopefully you can continue it until the last chapter

  12. I started reading the novel version after reading the manhwa — Lucia is currently my favorite novel by far. Thank you so much miss ruby for your translations!!! I can’t wait to read the ending 😍😍

  13. Thank you so much Miss Ruby for translating Lucia novel, your work are the reason why I started to look at another Korean Novel as my friends who are the one that recommend me to read your translation, And today, I am so eager in reading a lot of Korean novel 😄😄 and interested in reading Light and Shadow novel as I read the synopsis and the spoiler at Manhwa is pretty good too. But, I cannot found the full translation version as it just have the teasers part only. Could you consider to pick up this novel ?
    Btw, thanks in advance for your hard work. Have a wonderful life, Miss Ruby I love you 😍 Thanks again.

  14. Hi Miss Ruby, first of all thank you so much for translating lucia novel, its just great, huhu if you are looking the next novel, could you consider to translate light and shadow novel after this, its have such great manhwa so I wonder how about the novel. Btw, love you so much Miss Ruby😘😘

  15. Hi! The two other projects were already being translated by someone: The Hero Proposed to Me
    Methods to Save the Villain Who was Abandoned by the Heroine, though the update is really slow :(. (Though I’d like it if it was picked up by you, hihihi. But i’m not really sure if it’s okay and i want to inform you if ever you hadn’t known. hihi.
    Btw, thank you for the updates!!
    May I recommend:
    I raised cinderella preciously
    I became the secretary of a tyrant ;

  16. Hi Miss Ruby! First of all thank you for translating Lucia. It is such a wonderful book. I woudn’t have known such book if you did not translate it so thank you very much for giving me an opportunity to read it. I don’t know if you can translate a japanese novel but if you can. I humbly request you to consider this novel. I read some chapters of it but the translator is not updating anymore. So I hope you can consider this novel. It also has a great story if you ask me.

  17. 구경 하는 들러리 양

    Its English name is Miss Not-so Sidekick. No one has translated this yet. The raws are available at RIDI books or Aladdin website. You have to buy the books unfortunately.

    BTW, it’s also a manhwa.

    Also, Beatrice! KR NAME: 베아트리체

    It’s also available in RIDI, Aladdin, and kakao. Also a manhwa!

    Last, but not least, Prince, What do you want to be?

    KR NAME: 황자, 네 무엇이 되고 싶으냐?

    It’s also a manhwa xD

    Ima comment more when I find more novels to recommend xD

  18. First and foremost thank you very much for translating Lucia.
    I really like this novel and I appreciate your translation very much, it makes reading this novel very enjoyable.

    Second: you asked for recommendations for your future translation. I would like to suggest this novel (actually I am reading the manhwa atm): it’s called Lady Beast in English and I think the kr name is 레이디-비스트
    If you want to try reading a few free chapters I think you can read them here (not completely sure though, as I don’t know a single Korean word ^^;)

  19. I suggest you take it,The Wolf Prince and the Ice Princess, since it has been abandoned for a long time and there are not so many chapters left for it to end, thanks 🙂

    1. How about ‘The Lady is a Stalker’? The team translating it will drop it soon (they’re gonna translate 2 ch more) so maybe you want to continue. Sorry for my bad english and thanks for your hard work. You’re an amazing translator.

  20. Please translate the novel “Light and Shadow”. I also really like the manhwa a lot. So PLEAAAAAAASSSSSEEEEEEEEEE let that be your next project😍

    1. This had Alot of lucia vibes going on when I read it lol… I’m not sure if the novel ver is better but I hope it is if you decide to pick this up… The manhwa ver kinda …mediocre after reading your translations…thanks for the awesome job❤

    2. Yep the webtoon was very weird but at least we kinda know the ending.
      It would be really great to read a novel about a story where the ending is not available anywhere.

    3. TBH I have a lot of recommendations (since all of them have a nice cover & summery) and I really don’t know which one to choose. So I’ll just let them be here and wish that you would pick up one of them :))) (please check them out If you can)

  21. How about ‘The Lady is a Stalker’? The team translating it will drop it soon (they’re gonna translate 2 ch more) so maybe you want to continue. Sorry for my bad english and thanks for your hard work. You’re an amazing translator.

    1. The reason they dropped it was because its poor ratings. The ending is messed up so they decided not to continue since it didn’t deserve the effort they were putting on it.

  22. First of all, Thank you so much for translating Lucia! I have some k-novel that I would like to recommend.

    -How to be a dark hero’s daughter
    -The lady wants to rest
    -One step forward to the flower path
    -I raised Cinderella preciously
    -She and the beast
    -Life is like Maria le Wellin
    -I am the male lead ex-girlfriend
    -The tyrant’s tranquilizer
    -The grand duke’s little lady

    1. -How to be a dark hero’s daughter
      -I am the male lead ex-girlfriend
      Somebody already suggest these. They are really good. I would love any of those!!

      1. O.O
        I didn’t see it before but you have “Methods to Save the Villain”. That one I want to translate it into Spanish. If you’re picking that up, please tell me. I would like to ask for permission for translating it since now!
        Pd. Sorry for the bad English. Still learning it.

    2. Just wanted to drop that these novels are currently being translated:

  23. hi … could you please consider picking up youve got the wrong house villaine? because the previous translator dropped it .. and many people still anticipate this .. so could you please consider to continue this novel ? thank youuu

  24. I’ve already wish for the survive as a hero’s wife novel but now i just follow with the flow….since miss ruby probably already has one in mind….anyway….thanks for your hardwork😊😊

  25. I also recommend Miss Not-So Sidekick (구경 하는 들러리 양), As you Wish, Prince (황자, 네 무엇이 되고 싶으냐?), and Light & Shadow. Although, Miss Not-so sidekick romance is a slowburn romance (but the slowburn is worth it eventually) lmao xD

    I won’t recommend I Just Want to Disappear since somebody already picked it up. Instead, I will recommend
    Prince, raise me chirp (황제여, 날 키워 삐약) and A Capable Maid (능력 있는 시녀님).

    Myling did reviews on these two novels but no one has picked it up.

  26. Same here.. i also wish for “survive as a hero’s wife” to be your next project, but anything is fine for me 😊
    Thank you for Lucia miss ruby. Gbu.

  27. Pleaseee pick up, you got the wrong house villain, the story is so good no angst, but still full of mystery. And the character are unique, and their interaction is so cute. More over the previous translator drop it, and its really saddening consedering the quality of this novel. I’ve read it by MTL-ing till the latest chapter and its so gooddd. I wish i can understand bore, especially lakias and yuri interaction aahhh. thank you so muchh

  28. Try ‘the reason why raeliana ended up at the dukes mansion’ i wanted to know the explanations of the novel behind their expressions in the manhua:) i love your translation of lucia thank you for all the effort ^_^

  29. I’ve just recently discovered Lucia and thank you very much for translating ❤
    As much as I love Light & Shadow manhwa, I’d love to read ahead, but if you start now, it might take long to catch up. Anyway~ I’ve found this one today:
    The premise seems interesting and I admit I was a bit frustrated after reading ch1, because it was more like a preview and the translator said they’ve translated only one chapter, in the hopes someone would be interested and pick it up. So here’s my recommendation.

    Thank you for all your hard work! ❤

  30. Any novel you want to translate will be fine for me, because I love your work and I know you won’t leave it in half once you work on it. Sorry for my bad English since I speak Spanish and what I am writing is with the google translator. Thank you very much for your hard work.

  31. First of all, thank you very so much for translating Lucia..
    Please pick up the villain saviour novel, I really love this one and I hope you can consider as one for your recomendation.

    Thank you…

  32. Thank you very much for your work.
    I really like Lucia.
    Some propósitos for translate
    The villain’s Savior
    The dolce vita di Adélaïde
    One day I became a princess
    Once more in the light
    Abandoned empress
    The Wolf Lord’s Lady
    Survive as the heroe’s wife
    Why are you doing this duke?
    The reason why Raeliana ended up in the duke’s mansion
    I sincerely became the maid of the Duke

      1. Beatrice novel hasn’t been translated yet by anyone AT ALL so there’s no NU link.

        However, raws are out there at Kakao, Aladin, and Ridibooks.

        I read the manhwa and the story is really good so far.

  33. Pleeease choose “you’ve got the wrong house villain” I REALLY LIKE IT and was so heartbroken when the translator dropped it
    The story is so interesting I really like it when the ML is -supposed to be- a villain and MC is so cute

  34. Thank you for all your hardwork! I really love your translation and happy to hear that you would pick up another series after Lucia ❤️

    If I may have a say to this, “I think Survive’s As The Hero’s Wife” won’t be as likable or that many people that would read it as it already has the webtoon and the story is all about misunderstanding which is a pain to read, at least that is for me 😐

    I would also recommend “Sincerely: I Became a Duke’s Maid” cuz I feel like the ML has the same vibe as Hugh in Lucia and the tragic of their childhood >< and I checked in Kakao Page, "Sincerely" has 114 chapters which not that long and I feel the plot-progress is normal, not too long.

    I would give a push for "Light&Shadow", "You’ve Got The Wrong House, Villain", "Methods to Save the Villain Who was Abandoned by the Heroine." But honestly, do pick the one you enjoy the most ❤️

    Once again, thank you so much Miss Ruby!

  35. For my recommendations I’d say~
    “Methods to Save the Villain”
    “How to be a Dark’s daughter”

    Thank you!! 🍵✨

  36. oh myyy I reallyx2 appreciate you wanted to take light and shadow novel😍😍, because at beginning I’m so sad when there is no one to continue this novel anymore, I really love the Manhwa and make me to look up the novel too.
    Thank you so much Miss Ruby😘

  37. For your information too, this novel has been translated by Miss Rainy only the teasers part, and from the notice that I had read, she will not release another 10 chapters that she already done translate because she worry that there will be some reader questioning her the reason why she stop this project, Truthfully, From my perspective I understand her feeling because she already told in beginning that she will not take the project fully. So when I hear that Miss Ruby wants to do, it make me so excited and fully glad😍😍 because I really love this story so much and wanted to buy this novel in Korean but you know I cant read Hangul at all😭😭, and i think you can understand how hard to read the translation from google translate.
    Thank you so much Miss Ruby

  38. Please pick up You’ve Got the Wrong House Villain.
    Methods to save the villain is currently being translated by Pocky’s Bookshelf.

    1. The hero proposed to me is also being worked on by Poky’s bookshelf.
      Dreaming sheep is working on I just want to disappear

  39. I really really love you’ve got the wrong house villain
    The female lead is so interesting and I feel like the story has a lot of potential
    I would love it if you translated it ❤️❤️

  40. Personally I think “You’ve got the wrong house villain” is the best choice.
    “Light and shadow” and “the reason why Raeliana blah blah blah” or “survive as the hero’s wife” are ahaed hafl of the novel at least. And if you start now it would take so long for you to catch up. And also I love Methods to Save the Villain who was Abandoned by the Heroine but It’s already picked up by pockysbookshelf and it’s so good. so yeah this is my opinion though I love your work anyways

  41. Wow, please pick up light and shadow novel, because when I read the review, they said that both novel and Manhwa are really wonderful!!!!

  42. Thank you for picking up the novel, ‘You’ve Got the Wrong House, Villain.’
    I’ve been wanting to keep reading this for a long time now.
    Also Thank you for translating Lucia!

  43. I feel a little sad that you are not picking up Light and shadow novel first, huhuhu “i’m a big obsessed with this story right now 😭😭 ” but still I’m still support your work, you are such great translator, Btw, Thanks for translating Lucia!!

  44. Hello ruby!
    I wanted to ask if u will consider to translate a novel i recommend.
    I really really want to read proper translated version of “Why are you doing this duke”.
    Its fluufy like lucia.
    I know its already been adapted into a webtoon but reading is a whole different experience. I felt that after reading lucia.
    I hope that you would consider this in future.
    And also thank u for beautifully translating lucia.

  45. I’m back!

    I found this on Naver Series App.

    It’s called (according to Papago lmao) “The Duke Picked Up in the Woods.” (KR NAME: 숲속에서 공작이 주운 것은)

    Currently it’s only available in Naver series app. First 75 chapters are available for free xD

    Synopsis is at

    Or at Naver Series App

    Just a suggestion 🙂

  46. I’d like to recommend the novel “How to protect the heroine’s brother”
    (여주인공의 오빠를 지키는 방법)
    Thank you Miss Ruby!!

  47. I suggest you this novel called “Crown of thorns” you can find it on ridibooks and they just translated the prologue as a teaser in Novel updates. Please tale it in considerati on it’s a great novel.

    The person who was locked away inside the thorn-covered tower was not a princess, but a witch who employed the powers of darkness.

    A brave young hero came searching for the tower in order to kill the witch.

    – Light would force the darkness to recede, and grant it eternal rest

    The witch wished.

    That things would end with, ‘and the hero lived happily ever after killing the witch,’ like in the fairy tales.

    And so, she had devised everything to happen in accordance to her wishes.

    But the boy, who had grown up in but no time at all, would make the unfamiliar face of man’s from time to time.

    “You want me to kill you? ……Do you really think I’ll let you go?”

    Reality was very different from the fairy tales.

    “The people don’t know of the precious treasure locked away in the tower.

    I won’t let anyone else have this god given treasure, this crown of god surrounded by thorns that no one else could recognize.”

    The hero gave the witch a slow and deep kiss.

    “I am the true victor, and no one else.”

  48. Please this one SSS-Class Suicide Hunter !!! I heard this one is a top tier novel in korea. I do really love your translation, and I believe it would be better for you to pick up this one!!! when it comes to action scene your translation was mesmerizing it was easy to read even my native was’nt an english.

  49. Hello Ruby! First and foremost, I want to thank you for your hard work and dedication in translating these novels for us ❤️ You are more than appreciated! I honestly couldn’t say thank you enough because without this page, I wouldn’t be able to finally read Lucia.

    One novel recommendation I have is called Beatrice. I am not sure if someone is translating it but here is a link to the novel: .

    Sending you my love and support ❤️❤️

  50. Hi miss Ruby. Thank you for your works and dedication in translating Korean Novels. Without your translation i wouldn’t be able to fully understand Lucia.
    Beside “Beatrice” i would recommend you to translate 소피아, 중세탈춯기 (or i think it’s “sofia, medieval escape” 🤔🤭) i’m sorry for my bad readings … and i’m not sure if someone or one of the scanlation groups is translating it, but it seems that no one has taken it yet. I found it in google play book, and around 261 pages of the first book can be read freely.
    I really hope that you can pick this novel. Thank you 💐🙏❤️❤️

  51. Miss Ruby!!! May I be your fan please:””
    Thank you so much for your kindness!! As a student myself, I know how hard it can be manage your schedule, but you still decided to translate for us! That’s fantastic! Let’s work hard together!!<3

    Mm… If it's recommendation, then I would like to recommend.. Ah, all novels on kakaopage are so tempting:'D Especially the covers! I want to read them all! But I'd say right now I'll recommend The Hero Proposed to Me! Another translator had translated up to chapter 5 I think, but it hasn't ben updated in a long time:" I was so desperate that I even made an account on kakaopage just to read it because no one else translated the novel (trust me, I REALLY did my research!), I didn't even care about my oh-so-lacking Korean skill since google translate exist, but so I was basically SO READY to just drown into the novel!! Especially since I saw 완결(?) somewhere near the title and I think it means complete or finished? So I REALLY was SO READY to read it!! But apparently you need to download the app to continue reading after chapter 3, so I went to PlayStore to download the app, right? But apparently kakaopage isn't available in my regionTAT I AM STILL SO SAD YOU KNOW??:((( So, yeah.. that's the only novel I can think about at the moment hehe But I think your choice are great too! So thank you so much for doing god's work and translate all of that for us! Also I'm sorry for rambling a lot, I can get too emotional when it comes to light novels huhu Again, thank you very much!!! We all love you!!!!!<3

  52. I read this in a webtoon and I found out that it also has a novel version and I would really love to read it with your translations. You just make the conversations and setting alive.. I hope you would consider translating The Law of Webnovels/webtoons??? I really enjoy lucia and I am disparing over its near end and I am starting to love the You’ve got the wrong house villian

  53. Thank you very much for your hard work, Miss Ruby. I love your clear and smooth translations.
    I really want to read Beatrice so i highly recommend. 🙂
    And i saw 너의 의미 Your meaning on Myling novels’ blog. It looks cute and different. 🙂

      1. unfortunately i dont have the raw link, i just found this novel on but after I look up again the link was hidden cause dead link (the translator protected the link with password T_T)
        I’ll try to get the link, but i am not sure 😀 but its okay.
        Thanks Miss Ruby, I already done read Lucia, and the translation is really great (thumbs up)
        I’m really glad you pick You’ve got the wrong house, villain (cause I fell in love on first sight with yuri :D)
        Hope you are always healthy and keep the spirit up. We (I) really love u. thanks a lot
        *sorry if my english is bad, english is not my first language 😦


    All of the novels I wanted to read are on kakaopage. When will they go international?? TT~TT
    These novels are:
    1.) The Hero Proposed to Me
    2.) I’m Only a Stepmother but my Daughter is so Cute (aka: Snow White’s Stepmother)
    3.) The Emperor and the Female Knight
    4.) She was Sent by God


        You’re right Miss Ruby.. it’s really annoying to navigate kakaopage. I want to make an account but you need a Korean sim for that. I wonder why they wont make it international? I’m sure they’ll rake in more money with the amount of international readers they have

  55. I’m Evelyn not Evangeline

    Inso’s law please…
    But the novel from kakaopage hiks..

    Here’s the link from nu forum:

    And here’s the link from mangaupdates:

    the story and character are well build, exactly not an ordinary isekai story. But if you aren’t interested in translating this, then just consider this comment as a good read recommendation to you. I love Lucia so much! Thank you for translating lucia! ❤️

  56. Aloha missbRuby, i am a big fan of your Lucia translation, God knows you helped me so much by giving your best effort translating this novel. I appreciate it so much.
    I suggest that you fixed the link, because I was directed to this page not fron the welcome page.
    And If I may recommend a novel, would you like to translate ‘the reason why raeliana ended up at the dukes mansion’ if you don’t mind
    Anyway, whatever project you would pick, I’ll be read it, since your translations are easy to understand
    Thank you once again, havw a good day Ruby-sama

  57. Hai ruby. Thank you for your hard work translating Lucia novel. I really appreciate it. Realyu, thank you veey much. Emm.. For the next novel, i recommended
    – The villain’s Savior
    – Beatrice
    – I sincerely became the maid of the Duke
    You can choose one from these three. Well, the story are good, and not boring. We keep wondering what will happen next.

  58. OMG thanks a lot for asking us for advices.

    I heard Beatrice is amazing : it would be great if you could translate it once you’re done with Lucia 😍
    The story is original and the heroine isn’t just some cliché isekai girl.
    But thank you in advance for any new novel that you’ll take on 🙂


        Yes. I think she lacks any pride for herself. Her half-sister’s death was actually more impressive since she died with a little dignity. Plus, the men in this book are total pieces of trash.

      2. It may be so : I’ve only read a few chapter of the webtoon and I felt like she’s doing what she can to stay under the radar and survive.
        But it doesn’t mean that she’s weak : the beginning of the webtoon is pretty dark with all the dead. It may just be a way for the author to make her survive it all? 😉

        If that one doesn’t interest you, there’s also this one who seems fun:

        But it has a much more “Lucia vibes” to it haha 🤣

  59. Please take a look at Emperor and Female Knight! I think it would really suit your taste!
    Pauliana has been defeated and captured by the army of the enemy nation, Acrea. She has been desperately trying to survive in men’s society, but it was all in vain. Acrea’s young king, Lucius, sees her struggle and makes an unexpected offer. He dreams to continue the war and be the first emperor to conquer the South continent and it’s sea. Pauliana, swears a life-long allegiance to Lucius for acknowledging her. However, in the end, Lucius is just an emperor on the battlefield that had awakened his love for Pauliana!


      Sadly, that’s a kakaopage novel. Miss Ruby vowed to never get another one from that site since its virtually impossible to navigate for a non-Korean

  60. Hi, I was reading Lucia Side Story 7.4: The Beginning of All Stories (4) and was directed to this page, so is the link broken or you currently still not translate it?
    Please let me know..
    Thank you very much for your hard work to translate Lucia, because honestly i don’t think i can buy its original work in my country.. i just can read the manhwa from Webcomics app but the are taking to long to update,
    So I really appreciate what u do 😊
    Thank u
    And please let me know the update

      1. Thank you, i already read all your updates.
        I want to ask is this the end of the story? What about Demian who will go to the North and will being told about his true father and his family history? And about the woman name Ted that he like..
        Is the story really ended?
        I really appreciate it if u answer my questions
        Thank you

  61. I just finished the entire novel.
    Goshhhhhy heart T.T

    Can i recommend something?

    This Is An Obvious Fraudulent Marriage

    The Duke reminds me of the Duke of Taran. Because he is sooooo merciless 😭😭😭😭😭
    Im soooo inlove with this kind of duke.

    1. Yesss pleaseee, i love this tooooo😭 but unlike duke taran who interested to lucia because she’s mature and smart, this duke interested to the mc because how cute she is😩😭

      1. Well the manhwa is constantly being updated so would be great to see another novel being translated that is not picked up in another medium

  62. The two heroines of these stories are more independent:
    The Villainess Reverses the Hourglass (악녀는 모래시계를 되돌린다)
    Methods to Save the Villain Who was Abandoned by the Heroine (여주에게 버려진 악당을 구하는 방법)

  63. The translator dropped this project but I think that it’s a pity.
    I Don’t Trust My Twin Sister
    쌍둥이 언니는 믿지 않아요
    The richest woman in the world, Laurentia Aztana, had success in both work and beauty, but her life was unhappy. She discovered that the illness of her sister, Erusia, was a complete lie, and that she was cooperating with her fiancé to buy all of her possessions. It was a treacherous story “betrayal”.

    At the moment Laurentia was forced to turn her back on her pain and remorse, she had gone back eleven years before her engagement. Her faith in Erusia, her affection for her fiancé; all of it could go to hell. Listen carefully, Sister, there is no good sister now. I pledge to redesign my life.

    The first thing is, I’m tied up with a national hero who cannot possibly deal with the trash left in the past. Oh, the debt that you took unfairly, I’ll fix it. Instead, become my marriage partner.

  64. Hi I was on YGTWHV chapter 23 and it led me here when clicking “next”. Was just wanting to let you know. Thank you.

  65. Hello Ruby San ! Please translate this novel “This Is An Obvious Fraudulent Marriage” I really think this will be an awesome translation of you are the one doing it just like Lucia !!! 😍😍😍

  66. Yesss pleaseee, i love this tooooo😭 but unlike duke taran who interested to lucia because she’s mature and smart, this duke interested to the mc because how cute she is😩😭

  67. Hello!! Thank you so much for all your work translating Lucia!!! I’ve come to love your translation too so Lot of thanks!! BTW, could I ask you if you’ve picked “I’m done with my husband, I’ll go make money”??? ’cause I’m a bit confused for the status “next protect”. Just for curiosity. Again, thanks U very much for your work!!

  68. I would like to recommend ‘Lady to Queen’. I can provide raws if you want.


    “I will never love the Emperor.”

    My sister Neil, who became the Emperor’s Queen after having dreamt of fairy tales and true loves, came back divorced and accused of high treason. Our family, the Rochesters, were mercilessly executed. But by some miracle, I came back in time to before she was selected as the Emperor’s Queen candidate.

    If I become queen in your stead, you and our family need not suffer. This life of yours can have a happy ending, sister. I promise.

    An empress fell into a trap, divorced and was cut off by her family. In the last minute of her life, her sister Lizzy regretted the way things ended. “If only I were the empress” then she would make sure not to love the emperor. Everyone will be happy without dying.

    When she opened her eyes, she returned back time before she became the Empress. In order to prevent a recurrence of the tragedies of her past life, Lizzie makes a final decision: “I will become the queen instead of you.” Can Lizzy, who became an empress, live a happy life?

  69. Please “The Hero Proposed To Me” … It’s good.

    But it’s Kakao page so… 💔😭

    Seriously, I just wish Kakao page would go international because I wouldn’t really mind paying 😧

    Loved YGTWHV btw. Thank you for translating ❤

  70. Definitely I’d suggest you to pick up Beatrice, i read some spoilers and Alexander the ML is the most romantic ( second to Hugo i think) and in love with MC.

  71. I would love to see the capable maid! It’s maid by the same author as dr Elise and the story is super interesting!!! Beatrice is amazing as well! Also lady baby and why are
    You doing this Duke… sorry I definitely have a problem lol

  72. I want to thank you so much, Translator! You have had gave me a real joy with this story! I wish I could make you a pendant to wear loaded with my good wishes I have for you!

  73. I’m not really sure how comments work so I might be posting this twice, but I’d like to recommend “Under the Oak tree” by Sooji Kim! It’s a pretty good novel from what I’ve seen. Also, I love your translations and I hope you’re doing well! 🙂

    1. Me too, please, please, please! It’s a really nice, tender story. The FL is pretty much traumatized but slowly comes out of her shell. Would love it if you gave it a chance after your current projects 🙂

  74. Hello I was reading manwha in a website and saw a oneshot that really caught my attention but apparently it was only promoting the novel. Not sure if anyone else has recommended yet or not but I would like to recommend it because I am dying to know whats next… and I’m sure other people would love it as well.

    Title: The Baby Raising a Devil / The Baby Raises a Villain /
    아기는 악당을 키운다

  75. Hi! Is there a chance that you would pick up the novel version of “WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS, DUKE?”? I know there is a manhwa version of it with Season 1 done and translated. But i really want to read the novel version of it. I hope you would pick this novel also. Thank you.

    1. Hello, it’s not about payment. I’d gladly do it for free but I don’t like how non-existent the female lead’s backbone is. A romance where the FL fears the ML for half the novel is not up my alley at all.

  76. Hi Miss Ruby,
    Although it is of poor habits, I find myself reading your translations well into the night. Is it possible to add a light and dark mode to be easier on the eyes at night?

    Many thanks.

  77. Hi interested in Duchess with an Empty Soul.

    There’s already a link on tumblr with five novels, 10 chapters each.

    There’s also a manhwa being translated, but there are a lot of drama there and I am sure there will be lots of fans who will appreciate your quality work. Again, it’s a strong female lead and romance. There is also action though.

    I really enjoyed your translations for Lucia and would love to read this as well, especially if it’s done by you. (I’m not even there for the smut. I just love the relationships that developed and the storyline. How it interweaved with the past, and set up for the future).

    I’m not the one who put it on tumblr so please email me and I’ll send it to you.

    Again thank you so much!

  78. Hi! Thank you for your work translating this novels.
    I would be very glad if you take a little amount of your time to consider translating THE EVIL LADY’S HERO and THE BABY ISN’T YOURS.
    I would love to read your translations of those novels, especially “The baby isn’t yours” in which the female lead is a total badass.
    Thank you for reading mi recommendation. Hoping you will consider it.

  79. I’m begging you to please translate “I tamed a tyrant and ran away” and “The Grand Duke’s Little Lady”. Please, please. They’re both unique novels and have the kind of heroines you like.

  80. Days ago, I came across one interesting manhwa called “Seduce the Villain’s Father/악당의 아빠를 꼬셔라”. The story looks interesting and I also found out that it has a novel form. I hope you can consider this novel.

    Summary of the Manhwa:
    Upon opening my eyes after a bus accident, I found myself in the fantasy world of a webnovel I enjoyed reading… the only catch is, I reincarnated 20 years before the novel begins! Reborn as Princess Yerenica of the small Lebovny kingdom, I’m determined to change the future in order to prevent the series of unfortunate events that will soon occur.

    In the original story, my older sister, Tejavia, is pregnant with the future female lead, when she’s suddenly kidnapped by the Belgoat Empire’s emperor. But in my desperate attempts to protect her, I got kidnapped instead!

    And as if that wasn’t bad enough, my body is ridiculously weak to magic. But… strangely enough, whenever I’m by the emperor, I feel fine!

    The only way to save the emperor, who’s destined to die at the hands of his own son after marrying the villainess, and save myself from being afflicted by magic… is for us to marry!

    “Marry me, Father.”
    “Father? Princess, I haven’t married yet, nor do I have any kids…”



  81. Hi,

    I would really love to see Light & Shadow translated as the storyline/heroine is amazing and one of my all time favourites! It’s a fairly short novel (2 or 3 volumes) I believe and the original translator has decided to no longer translate it. The first three chapters have been released so far if you would be interested in reading it or checking it out!

    Summary & Link to Chapters:

    The manhwa adaptation has been released and is completely scanlated.

    1. Omggg yes, Light and Shadow!!! I was going to recommend it but saw the recommendations were paused, so I came to check if someone else did. This is an amazing novel, I hope she translates it!

  82. “Who made me a princess” I really love this novel and for some reason translators have dropped this novel from like ch 70 and onwards.

  83. Hello Ruby!
    the series I want to recommend is
    – I’m Done with My Husband, I’ll Go and Make Money. – (
    the premise is pretty interesting, the bickering of the FMC and ML (?) in the first few ch was pretty funny too lmao, it’s a completed series (just recently? or maybe since last yr already),
    tbh i wanted to rec this to you already when lucia just ended but i thought maybe the other TLer will update it sometime again but yeah the last update was in august 2019….orz
    sorry that it’s another novel on KKP orz maybe you can pick it up after your current project :’) and if not, that’s ok too! maybe someday it’ll get some further TL or gets licens*d (hah), thank you so much for your Translations! much love and best wishes, M

  84. omg im so sorryyyyyy i didnt see the series i rec’d is already your upcoming series jfjkfkfkks IM SO SORRY it’s fine not to publish that comment then orz (and this one as well) sjjfjdj IM SORRYYYYY and thank you so much OTL OTL OTL SMH AT MYSELF

  85. Wow…there’s a lot of reccomendation hehe… Miss ruby i love your translations! I tell you no week comes by that i dont visit your site! I even re read the lucia for reminscing about the flowery words ≧∇≦ good work! By the way i reccomend the This Is An Obvious Fraudulent Marriage the novel and if these titles also have novels please

    •The evil lady will change
    •Rebirth common circumstances
    •A capable maid
    •Villainous princess
    •Beware of the villainess
    •If you give me flowers,i’ll give you me

    I all read them in the comics but i had the feeling that some of them might have novel that are not yet translated so please if you have time?

    1. Those are great series but I feel like it’d be a better use of our and Miss Ruby’s time to read novels that aren’t made into webtoons that are licensed and already being translated on a consistent basis

      There are sooooo many great novels out there without a translation or are dropped!

  86. Hi Miss Ruby! I love love love your site and translations!!

    Would second the recommendation for I Tamed a Tyrant and Ran Away pretty please!!! Seriously love this heroine

    And also I Raised and Obsessive Servant. I was so so so sad when the previous translator dropped it and it’s such a great novel!

  87. I loved the synopsis of this novel but there is no one translating.

    이혼한 악녀는 케이크를 굽는다

    냉정하고 무심한 남편을 위해 9년 동안 공작부인의 자리를 지켰지만 내게 남겨진 건 경멸과 무관심. 그리고 불륜을 했다는 누명 뿐이었다. “이 결혼을 참는 것도 이제 한계다. 네가 아무리 황제 폐하께 울고불고 해도 이제 더는 참아 줄 수 없어.” “예. 그러시군요. 여기 사인하면 되나요?” “그러니까 지난번처럼 불쌍한 척을 해도 이번에는 절대…….뭐?” 나는 태연한 낯으로 이혼 서류를 흔들어 보였다. “사인 다했어요. 이제 가도 되죠?” “…….” “참, 쌍방 불륜이니 위자료 얘기는 할 필요 없죠? 제 지참금만 돌려주세요.” “….그 적은 돈을 가지고 뭘 하려고?” 지난 9년간 내가 뭘 하든 신경도 안 쓰던 남편이 처음으로 내게 질문을 던졌다. 나는 자신 있게 웃으며 대답했다. “디저트 카페를 열거예요.” 민들레와인 장편 로맨스판타지,

  88. I Raise and Obsessive Servant.

    If I happened to tame my brother too well.

    I love both novels and sadly they discontinued translating it. If you happened have free time and okay with the storyline I hope you can pick it up. thanks in advance.

  89. Hello miss ruby there is an interesting novel I recommend but sadly it is not picked yet o found it in this website

    A Mermaid’s tale ,Flag of Marriage
    It kinda reminds me of death is the only ending for the villain since she is reincarnated in a game and struggles to find a way to live
    There is also lady wants to rest. I became the secretary of a tyrant
    I found this too interesting :
    The Emperor’s Terminally-ill Youngest Daughter is Being Taken Care Of (황제의 막내딸은 시한부입니다)

  90. Hello.. thank you for your translate of Lucia, I enjoy it so much, I want to recommendations some novel but maybe this is smut novel 🙁 the title is INGRID THE WHITE DEER, as you say you’d rather not translate smut novel, but the story is seem interesting, please look in to it and I hope you take an interest to translate it。◕‿◕。

  91. Hi MissRuby.
    I just recently found out that the translator of “Side Story” is dropping the translation. She said it was related to her real life obligations. It’s kinda sad though. The story is very beautiful and engaging. And the start of Volume 2 was really getting to good part. I hope you could try and give it a go, if you can. It truly is worth the read.

  92. Ruby sama 🥺🥺
    I want to recommend:

    1. “Death Is The Only Ending For The Villain”
    In novelupdates, kinda didn’t get any updates anymore, but they give alot of spoilers so I understand the story. Its very interesting and very funny but have tragedy too in it! trust me! Is the 2nd best novel I ever read (after “Trash of the count family”) even thought sometimes I didn’t understand because the translator not very good with korean but I appreciate it very much!
    so rather than ask u to translate it for better version i just want to recommend it to u to read (if you haven’t read it yet) so u have a good time too just like me, ruby-sama 😁😁

    2. “I Will Seduce The Northern Duke”
    And this one which I want to ask u for your next project! It’s look very interesting, the female lead looks smart and proactive (probably cause still only read the reviews in the promotion) and looks like the comedy will be fun too.
    The no.1 and no. 2 doesn’t have smut genre so don’t worry 😄😄

    Keep the spirit and may u always have a fun days

  93. Hello! You might like this but i forgot the title:’ sorry, someone dropped this series, ITS story’ about brother and sister with pink hair
    The brother rebelled and present the emperor position to his sister since his sister said ‘i fi become king i can make this kingdom better’

    And the ML ia Northern Duke, both her bro and Duke is crazy but the FL can control them

    I’ll comment letter if i can find the title, i have the pic cover but i cant post here

  94. I really like your translations of “Lucia” and “You’ve got the wrong house, villain”. Each chapter was very natural to read and I have reread it several times.
    Thank you very much, Miss Ruby.

    Only one Korean novel recommendation is “Yeon Lok Heun”. Like “Lucia”, “Yeon Lok Heun” also has a webtoon.
    It is about FL that disguises as a boy for his own protection, the period is historical and supernatural, the characters are very well executed, there is almost no bullshit of dog blood, but it is logical that there are political struggles, human struggles or war , schemes or corruption.
    Oh, there is also romance, as well as suspense, because FL is hiding her true genre while working as Head Imperial General at the palace.

    Quite intriguing, isn’t it?

  95. Hiiii! I don’t know if the recommendations are open again but I wanted to recommend “The Symbiotic Relationship Between the Rabbit and the Black Panther”. I have read a couple of chapters and it’s really funny and interesting! I’m also willing to pay for its translation because of how much I want to read it 😦

    Thank you so much for your hard work and I wish you lots and lots of health and happiness, your translations always make my days so much better.

  96. Hello ms. Ruby 😊
    Good evening we hope you’re doing fine and in good health.
    If it’s ok can I please recommend you to translate The Princess in the Dumpster.
    Please 🙏 🥺 thank you so much 😘
    And take care .

  97. Hi miss ruby.. i really enjoy your translation..Pleasee take a note on namjang really pique my curiousity how people comment on this novel =(

  98. Hello! Please can you translate “Cry, even better if you beg”? I know the title sounds weird but the female protagonist is really a heart touching character. It was dropped after 21 chapters and I can’t find it anywhere

  99. Hi miss Ruby!
    I hope you’re doing well~
    Thank you so much for translating YGTWHV, I love them ❤ seeing that the story is about to end leave a bitter sweet feeling and I can’t help but leave these two series as recommendation. Sorry even though you’ve said that it was paused but seeing other comments I mustered up the courage. So here you go~

    I Possessed the Final Villain of the Horror Game
    The reason why I recommend it is because it kind of give a similar vibe like YGTWHV; both protagonists have long black hair and red eyes and the tension in the first chapters. This novel only have two chapters in novelupdates, it has a “Survival” tag there so big change the protagonist has a backbone as you tend to prefer one. Hope you like it~

    Slimes Can Dream Too!
    Fluff, but not romance. The genres are comedy, fantasy and slice of life. The mc is a female protagonist that reincarnated into a slime that bounce and rolls around on the ground. She lives in a cave with a dragon as her owner and an elf as her companion. It only has 14 chapters in novelupdates and already 2 years since last updated. Hope you like it~

  100. Hey !! I recommend: I become the wife of the male lead! ( It’s really really good!!!)

    Or The villainess wants to be a sidekick

    I hope you’ll appreciate ❤️
