Welcome to RubyMaybe!

This is a site set out to translate Korean novels that the translator, Miss Ruby, likes.

Miss Ruby translates faster when there are a lot of likes and comments so don’t forget to do so! Miss Ruby is not Superman(yet) so she cannot work on more than one novel at a time!

Miss Ruby’s Current Projects:
° Lucia °
° You’ve Got The Wrong House, Villain °

Miss Ruby’s Possible Side Projects:
° Spectator °
° SSS-Class Suicide Hunter °

Note: Unlike Chinese novel chapters, Korean novel chapters tend to be LONG. In my translations, a chapter with 3k+ words will be split into two, a chapter with 4.5k+ words will be split into 3 parts, 6k+ words will be split into 4. I do this because it allows me to pump chapters out faster and more efficiently instead of just ignoring novels with long chapters.

PS: Miss Ruby is a student so releases can get sparodic if she’s too busy.


>>For those who keep asking for Volcanic Age, I am staying away from it because my Korean isn’t good enough to translate such a behemoth of a novel. I know I picked it up but I honestly didn’t know what I was getting into. Chapter 1 took almost 8 hours. I can’t.

>>Thanks for all the recommendations. I’ve settled on picking up You’ve Got the Wrong House, Villian. I like the novel + it had the most recommendations.

>> Please do not recommend anything from kakao page. Thank you.

  1. 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?


  2. 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.


  3. 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!


  4. 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.


  5. 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!


  6. 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!

  8. 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 😊

  10. 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 😍😍


  11. 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.


  12. 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😘😘


  13. 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 became the secretary of a tyrant https://www.novelupdates.com/series/i-became-the-secretary-of-a-tyrant/ ;


  14. 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. https://www.novelupdates.com/series/omae-mitai-na-hiroin-ga-ite-tamaruka/. 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.


  15. 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


  16. 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 ^^;)


  17. 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 🙂


    • 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.

    • 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.


  19. 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


  20. 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


  21. 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😊😊


  22. 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.




  23. 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.


  24. 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
