The Chinese manhua Wang Ye Buyao a (Prince, Don’t Do This!) is written and illustrated by Dong Man Tang who is also the author of The Weirdo (Yi Ren Zhi Xia) which is known as Hitori no Shita: The Outcast to anime fans. Dong Man Tang also created other manhua such as The Lost City and Blinding Flower.
To have an in-depth glimpse of its plot, here’s the full synopsis of the manhua as follows:
In order to fulfill her mission of bringing peace to her homeland, the Uyghur Princess Amelia travels to Chang’an and marries Emperor Dezong of Tang’s ninth prince, Li Qian. While she had been considered very capable in her homeland, the complex and foreign customs of the Tang court are something else entirely; and although she had not expected love in a political marriage, the sheer disinterest and arrogance of her husband is very hard to handle, no matter how capable and handsome he may be. Securing peace between the Uyghur Khaganate and the Tang Empire is not going to be easy, especially with a rebellion taking place in Tang.
