Waging war from the shadows, Yul and his mother, the Daebi, continue to turn the screws on Korea's royals - and the first targets in their sights are Crown Prince Shin and Chae-Kyung! Convinced by Yul that an upcoming television interview will be her last chance to talk divorce, Chae-Kyung is distracted from the larger picture by her feelings for her husband and the thought of freedom from oppressive palace life.
Meanwhile, as the Daebi fans the flames of suspicion that surround Shin in the royal arson case, the future king finds himself on the verge of losing his once-guaranteed position. But is a royal pregnancy the answer to saving the crown prince's sullied reputation?! The Queen Mother seems to think so, as she packs off Chae-Kyung and Shin to an isolated palace to consummate their marriage. However, with their relationship running equally cold and hot these days, divorce and romance seem to be a toss-up for the crown princess! Which will Chae-Kyung choose?!
Goong volume 9 collects Korean volumes 9-10 in omnibus format.
