In Snow White With the Red Hair, Shirayuki is an herbalist with bright red hair. Raj, the prince of her kingdom, catches word of her beauty and demands that she marry him! But she refuses and runs away. While on the run, she meets a mysterious brave young man named Zen who turns out to be the prince of the neighboring kingdom. Zen insists that Shirayuki moves to his kingdom and so her journey to become a court herbalist begins!
