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.

  2. 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! ❤

  6. 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

  7. 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!

  9. 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

  12. 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

  18. 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.

    Description
    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.”

  20. 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:

  21. 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 💐🙏❤️❤️

  22. 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
