Summary of Charming And The BeastLee Hanbyul, a university student born with only a dirt spoon in her mouth, opens her eyes to a hardcore transmigration life!
After meeting her tragic end in a car accident, she possesses the body of “Alexa,” the second princess of the kingdom of Felipe. However she wakes up not as a normal person, but as a furry beast…
Not only does she have to juggle getting rid of her beastly appearance with getting close to Verkyllon, the Grand Duke of the Veiled Kingdom, but she also has to keep the families and nobility that are after her for revenge in check.
This is a comical story about Alexa, second princess of the kingdom of Felipe’s relentless pursuit of revenge. – mangadex
Our main character is strong, both literally and mentally.
Now this is an isekai story, so the “beast” is an isekai:ed person from a different dimension. She immediately takes over the palace and changes both her diet and her furry exterior. The beast, Alexa, waxes her body from the fur and decides to work out her body.
The main villainess in this story is seemingly the sister, who has controlled everything previously. Of course, people think of the sister as a saint, but she has ulterior motives (even taking Alexa’s fiancé for her own).
The story is a bit crazy and there’s some exaggerations in the story. Especially with Alexa’s behavior, but overall the story is quite good. The art got better from the first chapters to the later ones, thankfully. Alexa got more beautifully drawn and is seen as a strong female with a gorgeous figure.
Now, there’s a male lead but so far we don’t know a lot about him or how they’ll get introduced. He’s black haired with dark, mysterious looking eyes. Apparently he’s cursed and people avoid him, but we don’t know what the curse is. On the topic of curse, what exactly happened with Alexa’s curse? She just waxed herself and that’s it?
Recommendation: Definitely check this one out
