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:
° Light and Shadow °
° 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.

  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.


    • 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.


  2. 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


  3. 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


  4. 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😊😊


  5. 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.




  6. 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.


  7. 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

  9. 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: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/this-is-an-obvious-fraudulent-marriage/
    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! ❤


  10. 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.


  11. 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…

  13. 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

    Liked by 2 people

  14. 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!

  15. 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😘


  16. 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


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


  18. 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 ❤️❤️

  19. 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


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


  21. 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!


  22. 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!!


  23. 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.
