One of my favorite behind-bickering-they-love-each-other couples. An appealing love ride between initially annoyed to each other couple who were forced to be together for the princess training conflict.
The long lost last princess of Korea was found and to prepare her for her royal duties, the grandson of a rich family who nurtured the royal family’s wealth prepped her up in facing her new responsibilities. Think Princess Diaries + Pretty Woman. This is the first bribe I got from both the actors to notice them and they were successful in forming a cheery love story.
The modern day princess themed drama did not give me the “my-girl-ish” kind of fondness, but there are really moments that I was able to painfully and delightfully relate to the characters.
The long lost princess of Korea will embark on re-claiming the honor of her royal family in the modern times, but it will not be easy owing to her need to prove her worth as a princess to her country and the evident rivals determined to stop the Monarchy’s re-emergence. She has to rely between the devil and the deep blue sea to fulfill the responsibility laid on her hands.
This drama has been Kim Tae Hee’s way of saying sorry to me after I saw her movie Grand Prix. (Pardon me, I’m having a Princess moment here… *giggles) Also, this is my favorite Sung Seong Heon oppa’s performance to date. Kim Tae Hee proved she can do the light, cutesy and classy character in this story.
Sassy couple fights, well rendered sweet hero display, and the mischievous yet vulnerable princess… These are some of the reasons why this love tale was pleasing and captivating. It managed to give depth to the princess-dark-knight love premise without losing the focal character conflict of the story and maintaining the bliss of the romantic element of the narrative.
“My Princess” is that drama you watch with your girlfriends on a pyjama night when you don’t want to talk about work and love problems and just want to rest and feel each other’s presence. Sweetly made for a woman who loves freely as it can be.
