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. 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

  2. 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!

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

    Thank you!! 🍵✨

  4. 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😘

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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 ❤️❤️

  8. 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

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

  10. 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!

  11. 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!!

  12. 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.

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

  14. 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.”

  15. 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.

  16. 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 ❤️❤️

  17. 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 💐🙏❤️❤️

  18. 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

  19. 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

  20. 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 😦

  21. 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

      1. 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

  22. 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! ❤️

  23. 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

  24. 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.

  25. 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 🙂

      1. 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 🤣

  26. 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!

    1. 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

  27. 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

  28. 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

  29. 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)

  30. 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.

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

  32. 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 !!! 😍😍😍

  33. 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😩😭

  34. 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!!

    1. Hahahaha that’s a good one! It was so funny that everytime i read it makes my stomach hurt with laughter

  35. 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?

  36. 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 ❤

  37. 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.

  38. 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

  39. 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!
