Sit back and take in this romantic tale of an angelic heroine and her devoted suitors as they vie for the depths of her love… or not. This story’s about to go through some edits! After an accident, a modern-day college student awakens as the story’s villainess, Melissa Foddebrat. She’s far from anyone’s favorite, but she IS the daughter of the duke. Determined to live it up, this new Melissa is doing things her way — antiquated society, be damned! All idiots, prepare to step aside or perish!


*I actually read this one December last year, and only able to post my review today, lol.

If you’ve read my updates on my social media account or in this blog, I’m sure you know how obsessed I was with villainess stories last year. It was crazy how I scouted every online reading site I could find, lol.

I remember seeing this manhwa, Beware the Villainess earlier and maybe read a few chapters but for some reason I wasn’t able to finish it. If I wasn’t able to see it in my recommendation, I would probably forget to read it again. And that would be bad! I can’t believe I almost skipped this masterpiece.

Beware the villainess is a story of a modern college student that transmigrated to a character in a novel. It’s not just an ordinary character, but as the story’s villainess, Melissa Foddebrat. Melissa’s end isn’t the worst since she didn’t die, but our MC still doesn’t like to end up like her. So her plan after waking up as Melissa is to live lavishly as a duke’s daughter. Meaning, she won’t do villainess acts like in the novel anymore and to also annul her engagement with the crown prince.

Contrary to what she expected, her plan didn’t work smoothly. Instead of not being involved, she ended up helping the female lead not to end up with any of the four sh*tty male leads and intends to throw them all out of her life.

I absolutely love this story. It’s interesting how the “villainess” helps out the female lead and in return they become really good friends. I love that this story has the right combination of romance, action and friendship. This story was labeled as romance, so I didn’t expect it would also contain lots of action. I love romance, but I love how Beware the Villainess didn’t rely heavily on that aspect but gave us more.

I think another reason why I also enjoyed this manhwa was because of the narration. It was clear and the execution of lines and changing of scenes were done smoothly. What else would you need eh?

This story wouldn’t be a big hit for me without its characters. I absolutely adore the MC. She’s a tough cookie and I love how cool she is. Unlike other MCs, she’s not very feminine and she talks roughly especially when she’s pissed. Aside from that, she’s also very hilarious, lol. I just love how playful she could get. She also doesn’t give a f*ck what others think about her especially since she’s a well-known villainess in the original story. The ML on the other hand is super cute, and has a very soft and likable personality. Which I think compliments well on the very strong personality of the MC. He may look soft, but this guy can also look cool when the situation calls for it, *wink.

Aside from that, this story also has some really interesting side characters that I’m sure will make you laugh and relate to. Aside from the sh*tty male leads, I think this story has a great line-up of characters.

Another thing I like about manhwa is the side stories! Now that the main story has ended, it’s great to see a glimpse of the side characters especially in their love story. It’s just soooo cute!

If you’re looking for a villainess story with a twist, I highly recommend Beware the Villainess. Hope you’ll give it a try!
