My Princess Review

Title: My Princess
Genre: Romance
Episodes: 16
Broadcast period: 2011-Jan to 2011-Feb
Cast:Song Seung Hun, Kim Tae Hee, Park Ye Jin and Ryu Soo Young.

Lee Seol (Kim Tae Hee) is a pretty normal girl: her grades are so-so, she always fights with her older sister, and is desperate after money. She has a good relationship with her mother, even though she’s adopted. Her memories of her father are wage, but one things she is sure of, one day he’s going to come back to her. Because she has a crush on her professor Nam Jung Woo (Ryu Soo Young), she works a lot of jobs so she can buy a ticket to Egypt, where her Professor is to travel to.
One day, as she is off from work, she bumps into Park Hae Young (Song Seung Hun), who asks to work overtime. At first they argue, but after a pay is settled, she agrees. As he is leaving, he doesn’t have cash, so he asks her to send him her account number, and they part. They meet again at a museum, were Lee Seol follows Park Ye Jin (oh Yoon Joo), a woman rumoured to be Jung Woos first love, and in Lee Seol’s eyes, her worst rival. Little does she know, Ye Jin is Hae Young’s future-wife, which inn Lee Seol’s eyes is a VERY positive thing.
Hae Young grandfather is an old man, with a lot of power. He has one wish, and that is for the Imperial Family to be re-instated. When he finds the last heir to the thrown he sends his grandson Hae Young to find her, who happens to be Lee Seol.

This drama is not my style. Yes, it’s funny, like really funny, but not enough to make it good. I felt annoyed most of the time, and was confused aswell; I mean, so weird can a human being NOT be.. Right? I compared it to a lot of dramas, and finally ended up at two: Goong and Full House. It circulates a lot, the same things actually over and over and over again, and the lead actress should be beaten up. It’s one of those where the lead actor would throw himself in front of a train for a girl and the girl would only soob and soob, and oh yeah, look for the supporting actor. I don’t know, really not my cup of tea. And I felt more chemistry between the supporting actor and lead actress than the other way around. All in all, not something I would recommed unless you really have nothing else to do.

☆☆☆ / 3 out of 5 stars
