Wolfgang Goldenleonard, the 4th Prince of the kingdom, returns to the palace after years of living in hiding. He rejects everything about his new royal life, but is intrigued by the mysterious and dutiful Shin Soohyuk, a catamite of the King. As Wolfgang slowly opens up and learns the ways of the palace, Soohyuk begins to see something special about the wild, unkempt, and stubborn young prince. He might just be the one Soohyuk has been waiting for... the one who could light the flame of rebellion.

@cervidae Oh god, thank you. I hate yaoi that include sexual violence between the two lovers. So I was about to disregard this even though I was interested :p
@Yatsuki and everybody else who wants to read the latest chapters in english, just go to they are the most updated english translated site i've seen so far
So I sneak a peak at the raw and Season 2 really picks up its pace at chapter 38... Why no official English translation I wanna understand it fully, darn it Google translate is convenient but not the most accurate... TT^TT

I contacted Lezhin about whether they would release Season 2 of King's maker and they confirmed that they would, but it would be the 18+ version with explicit details. The current version we're reading is the all-age one. Also they can't tell the official release date because the 18+ version is still not released.

Thank you for the update! Been waiting for this for so long TT.TT
Anybody knows where to read chp 1 in english?
Does anyone know what happened to the translated chapters of season 2? I'd read the official release if I could, but it looks like Lezhin is sleeping on it for some reason... :/
@CassiopeeM The translation was uploaded but has recently been removed :^/
Please can someone tell me where I can find the 2nd season? I read till chap 13 Season 2 and I see people talking about the season 2 in the comments but I see that the last translation here is chap 15 Season 1 :(
Aaaaw. Sys fell in love...with the doppelgänger...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I mean, I knew that the previous emperor was a sl**t but not to this big of a scale.
I GAPPED when I saw the black hair dude. I was so confused for a second. He looks so much like Wolfgang. I was even more shook by how Shin addressed him at first, even though it was more like a question.
I am hella shook right now.
The first season was definitely thrilling! I hope season 2 can become like that. Though Shin is much better in S1. It just my opinion tho. Lets hope it will get better
When the carriage was attacked I was like "WTF!!???" Had to reread the part a few times to get what happened. Hot damn.
@maanga || there isn't here, though there are references to the first season, which featured a few (maybe three) semi-graphic scenes (or at least i didn't consider them too graphic -- far as i remember there wasn't any sexual nudity) of the old king creeping on his young attendants.

i'd say it's definitely worth reading for the story! but i suggest you read the first season if you haven't already, since this is...a continuation of that.
like a few people said below you can find it on mangarock. ( hope u decide to give it a try
Im hesitant to read this considering the sexual violence tag in the content section of the description. Is there a lot of "sexual violence"? And is it worth going through for the story?
The color choice is magnificent, its just so beautiful to look at and the use of color is amazing....damn i legit gotta make this my wallpaper...XD
I’m kinda sad because I was so in love with season 1 but season 2 started off a bit meh and doesn’t have as much impact
I was getting really impatient with season 2. Thanks for the "preview". <3
