Sungkyunkwan Scandal Novel English Translation

Sungkyunkwan Scandal (성균관 스캔들): (Download link)

A.K.A. the drama that made me lose sleep, got me into roller coaster rides of fangirling emotions, and basically just made me show all the symptoms of a drama addict that I was. Can’t believe it was already a year!

Since this was based on a novel, a good friend @yuguruto (sp?) translated a few parts of it into English, showing the difference of the novel and the drama. (As usual, book > drama, though I am not complaining .) Too bad her site was deleted, but a few paeins have managed to salvage her precious work. I am posting the translations so that those unfortunate SKKS who did not get to read the wonderful story of the novel Lee Sunjoon and Kim Yoonhee would know what they had missed, hahaha! Kidding.

Edit: File is password protected though. Password is available upon request. Please provide a legit email address in your comment below, and please don’t give out the password once you have it. I will be changing it from time to time.

NOTE: This is NOT my work, I am simply reposting/sharing the translated works – for the great love of Sungkyunkwan Scandal.

EDIT 2 (02.01.11): For future password requests, please go here. Thank you!

  3. Hi!!! I can’t believe I found your site by chance. I’ve this drama a while back and recently came back upon it. I’ve been watching Moon Embracing Sun and it kept bugging me that such a great author also wrote SKKS, so I just had to search for the novel. So, hopefully you can send me the password so that I can download and read it too! Thank you!!!!

  6. Hello Kara,

    Ive been looking for an English translation of Sungkyunkwan Scandal and Im glad that you’re very generous to give us the link for it. Unfortunately I dont know the password. Can you send it tom?I really want to read this. Thank you very much in advance

  7. Hi Kara,
    I have finished reading SKKS Book 1. Thank you so much for let me read it. Can I have the password for SKKS Book 2 eng translation too? Thanks

  8. Hi there!! Thank goodness I found your site! I would like to request for the password as well 🙂

    I’ve become quite addicted to korean dramas and music despite the fact that i do not speak the language. MBC is currently airing The Moon that Embraces the Sun and while going through various threads, i’ve seen a lot of feedback to try to read the translated Sungkyungkwan Scandal novel as it was written by the same author. Books are often better than the interpreted TV series version. By the way, would you know if anyone has translated both books?

    Thanks in advance!

  9. Hello Kara Elayne!

    May I have the password, please. Enjoyed the drama and would love to read the novel as well. Thanks.

  13. Hello! I can’t believe someone translated the novel!!! I have all the doc. copies of Korean version of the books…, but the level of reading is wayyyyy too difficult for my level of Korean ( unless with a dictionary)

    Password for to download will be greatly appreciated!!!

    1. Hello!

      No, it wasn’t me who translated the novel, how I wish it was. It was yogurutu who translated bits of the novel, most of it the Kim Yoonhee-Lee Sunjoon interaction.

  26. Hi Kara,

    Can you send me the password for the SKKS translation? The drama was great and caused me to desperately search for the novel translation. Oh and thank you for salvaging the SKKS translations for us, even if some of us are unappreciative and unwilling to comment. 😀

  30. Hi Kara,
    Could please send me the password for accessing the SKKS eng translation? I would love to read it. Thanks for translating. Keep the good work.
    Waiting for your email soon.

  31. hi Kara, im so glad i’ve found your website. I was able to read some of yogurutu’s translation of SSKS novel. Unfortunately it can’t be accessed anymore. Although I was able to finish watching the SSKS drama, I still want to read the novel. Would you kindly share with me your password for the novel. I would appreciate it very much.

  32. Hello kara elayne!
    May I request the password for Sunkyankwan Scandal novel?
    Thank you so much for sharing Yogurutu’s work with us!

  33. Hello Kara, I was soooo happy to find your website after googling for the much wanted novel. I, too, read a lot of the chapters translated by Yuguruto but, unfortunately, did not manage to finish all of it before her blog was blocked out. I was hoping someone managed to save all the work she has done and many thanks to you and others who have saved her work and are willing to share it. I would LOVE to read it and would be very grateful if you could provide me the password.

    For your information, there are a number of people at Soompi looking for the translated novel. Perhaps you would like to direct them to your site. I am sorry to hear that people are not appreciative of your hard work in gathering all the chapters of this fabulous english translated novel by Yuguruto. I know it is hard work – thanks soooooo much.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    1. Hi Maddy!

      If you were backreading at Soompi SKKS thread, I am kara_elayne there. I haven’t been there for ages now.

      Is there any way I can email you the password? Is this a legit email add you are using to post your comment here?
