    It could also just mean Klein has a lesser likelihood of dying in unnatural means even if he does age. Somehow feels like the biggest probpem is Ciel here lol especially when it looks like he's not adapting to Korea as well as Klein is X'D

    I read the nivel on Kakaopage. Link is on the first post of thread. It's all in Korean though and very screenshot unfriendly :'D you get a free chapter unlock every 24hrs.

    I knowww lol Ciel trying to adjust seems to be really funny when reading the spoilers lol

    Too bad its only on kakaopage :( Im actually korean but I was born and raised in North America so my korean reading skills is trash ngl (especially cuz I have no interest in things like kpop or kdrama, only manhwa lol). I usually ask my mom to explain the real hard parts but if I can find the time I'll try to manually translate the epilogue or side stories myself over here :)

    Same here! I was born and raised elsewhere despite having KR family XDXD my reading was pretty bad (I'd get a headache just looking at a wall of Kr text) until I really wanted to read the Abandoned Empress manhwa raws when the scanlator threw a bloody tantrum about the ending and droped it (-stares off into space-)

    Since then I've been reading the start in translations and catching up in KR, then googling more difficult terms since my mom is a pain to ask definitions from. It really helped with my reading / comprehension skills X'D

    It's still tiring but worth it for the skill imo. I dont think these novels are written all that well though so I prefer how they reformat and clean things up on the manhwa side. A lot of the novels are written in first person and has soooooo much internal monologue xjcjdncncm

    I'd try my hand at translation but last time I did a chapter it was such a pain;;; all the anti-plagiarism stuff makes it really difficult to see the whole text in one place (each page has such limited words;;; ) + it would have really saved a lot of time if I could just machine translate the whole body then edit all the problem areas. Ah well.

    But yeah...the ending is unusual? I'd never seen an author who tries to justify a harem end this logically before LOL And to create it in the Epilogue side stories even. In the end I think everything after the main story ending tends to just be fanservice, which I guess is true for most kr novels anyway.

    Doesn't seem to happen with any of the other manhwas so I don't see why they would change it. A lot of the manhwas which have reached the end game have continued into their epilogues and side story as well so it's likely this will get the full treatment.

    Looking at the comments, the readers seemed pretty satisfied with this ending. If anything they were begging for Mio to reunite as well throughout the epilogues and seeing as the KR audience comes first, they have really little reason to write a different ending.

    I'm one of those people whose only interest in the story is the queen, so I'll probably keep it dropped unless it (very unlikely) takes a different route from the novel

    Honestly, just read all the available manhwa translated chapters. Because of Mio's dominant appearance, I'm currently on team Mio (but also wouldn't have mind the platonic Seya route). Klein... so far has no romantic material (and it didn't help referring MC as a keepsake. lol). Really liked MC actually, I mean this was LITERALLLY the title, SURVIVING... AS... A MAID. I dunno if I could've done better if I was in her place but if I myself have no cheats other than small memories of novel plot AND your bg is a literal extra AND the second or third lowest being a maid/commoner, then so far I admit, MC did good. Weirded out on the harem end on modern era (not surprised with Ciel struggling, he's a magician, not an alchemist or whatever we call mixing sciencexmagic specialist). Still... if it ends with harem, better MC ends with EVERY guy that actually deserve her. I mean... Mio took a fatal injury to get her home, plus my tanned bias (though I actually do not like tsunderes, but I'll give Mio the benefit of being "real" or "blunt" towards MC. I mean, in order to survive, MC has to constantly walk on eggshells and to enjoy whatever life brings her, the good thing Mio did for her is a genuine friendship in the manhwa (since she currently thinks of him as gay. Btw... can anyone explain why Mio and Klein are hostile towards each other? How about MCs other maid friends? I ADORE the friendship here! No b*tchy coworker other than that mention of Pepe pushing Seb off stairs which should constitute attempted murder?)

    Mmmm, I'm not one to judge a story by spoilers. I read (and enjoyed) Abandon Empress despite knowing exactly how it ends, because that kind of ending can work with good writing. But knowing that this is a reverse harem, my least favorite trope, and it's being played completely straight and not cushioned by comedy like Chitra, I don't regret saying that I'll be skipping this story. Sorry, you can't write a serious, bloody story filled with death, threats of death, ptsd, pseudo-pedophilia, misery and misfortune then give it a ridiculous ending like a reverse harem. I mean, you can write it, I just won't read it.

    I'm gonna be honest:

    I had this thread remade because people were clogging the original up with negativity on spoiler information alone, with zero content contribution or discussions over what actually happens.

    Seeing as we're intent on doing it all over again I really just don't have the energy to check in anymore.

    I won't be updating or replying to this thread and will be removing it from my alerts. For the small few who were interested in what happens I hope the manhwa journey ends up satisfactory to you all they way it was proving to be for me.

    I see... it’s sad :( that people like you provide amazing spoilers for us viewers to read but so many people are clogging the thread with negative comments that it ruins the whole interest of the novel.

    Looks to me like they think you must love the novel after reading the spoilers or something? I mean, I understand feeling frustrated when there's like only 2 spoilers and a bunch of speculation, but the whole novel from beginning to end has basically been spoiled and it just seems like a below average story? Most reactions are "Right, I knew this was shitty, thanks for confirming" and moving on, why are they taking it so personally?

    Like it if you like it, no one's stopping you. I can't stand harems (especially ones played completely seriously like here), so I'll be skipping it. Apparently the original poster wanted only postive engagement, so they've given up.

    I know how frustrating it is when you dedicated your precious times to translate many chapters and being generous enough to provide us spoilers in previous thread, but getting overwhelmed by ridiculous comments, re-made another thread to find peace, then here we go again.

    I disagree with the person who said that basically the whole novel has been spoiled from the beginning till the end. In fact, I’m always curious and have yet to how Klein, the 1st ML is going to fall in love with Ash. I’m eager to see the process. It’s not really helping when he currently acts so sweet to Ash while being cruel to her by treating her as a ‘keepsake’ and always talk about his past woman, Itika/Itica(?) whenever they met. I’m glad Ash has that kind of (dont-care-dont-bother) personality, he will find the hard way to court her later.

    It’s maybe too early to judge, but I think he deserved to be included in a harem (aka two-timed) and I can see that he will fall hard for her as he was willing to follow her and left everything behind. Again, thank you for your time till now, I think you deserve more than this. I will try to read it on kakaopage as I’m really curious.

    So after everything the queen doesn't get the single most happy ending she deserved more than anyone else? Okay not reading.

    ;-; I can’t even keep count of the times I’ve heard this. If u don’t want to read, then don’t read it. LET ME REPEAT: THIS IS A SPOILER THREAD. IF U WANT TO RANT ABOUT THE QUEEN THEN MAKE A DISCUSSION. Personally, I like the story. I still haven’t reached the end but it’s very intriguing.

    Aye, I applaud the author for making us readers getting easily invested for the Queen, but the way the plot unfolded is just...meh. I love reverse harem stories, but I just don't feel like it works in a context like this one.

    (Instead I would recommend Men of the Harem hehehe)

    I'm grateful for the spoilers yall provided... but the ending is heart and stomach clenching... I pray that none of us will be isekai-ed to that world and be the pitiful queen.

    Yeah, I love reverse harem stories but the way the author packed things up just... meh. It feels like the author made the queen character only to become a plot tool.

    Same opinion here lol. The harem didn't sit well to me too but after reading the explanation of someone as to why she couldn't choose, I kind of understand more of it. I didn't read the whole story, I stopped at the latest 43 chapters in the manwha eng translation and went here to fish some bits so there were lots of parts that I missed.
    Still love this novel tho, it did not go to the usual "This is my life now, Im not going back to my old world" trend.
    Ps: Kinda sad about Mio's ending but it's better than the ending of Ecklise, another ml runner up from the story Villains are Destined to Die. Fuq that really left me a bad taste:')

    Mio huh... From the first he appeared I really like him. Looking how the spoilers, I'm at peace. Tho, I'm between the Klein and Mio's flag. May Mio got his own happiness
