kdrama - princess hours

official website:

drama title:
궁 (宮) / Goong
oso known as Princess Hours, or Palace, or Imperial Household, etc.

main cast:
Yoon Eun Hye as Shin Chae Kyung
Joo Ji Hoon as Lee Shin
Kim Jeong Hoon as Lee Yul
Song Ji Hyo as Min Hyo Rin

what if drama. what if south korea has constitutional royalty, like England? then this drama is about a commoner marrying into the royal family.

my score: 8 out of 10.
how i derived that score. i have always wanted to watch this drama, after catching some parts on Singapore TV. it was a brilliant concept (a comic book adaptation) brought vividly to life by excellent scripting. i even bought a copy of the DVD set some time back, but i gave it away to someone else. finally, i bought another copy and started watching it. as expected, the first few episodes didnt disappoint. and that is my current status of watching it.

why you should watch it:
  • it's a funny drama, not too much sob stuff. in fact, none so far.
  • there is eye candy, and there is a 2nd lead
  • and there is the forever optimist Yoon Eun Hye. btw, she BITES! at the end of that episode, there is a cute replay using teddy bears (who were not injured in any way in the making of the drama)
  • there are lots of teddy bears on show (mostly from the Teddy Bear museum on Jeju Island - Jeju Teddy Bear Museum)
  • if u are a fan of Baby V.O.X. (extinct korean girl band), cos Yoon left the band and started acting in this drama.
