kdrama - Prosecutor Princess

official website:

drama title:
검사 프린세스 / Prosecutor Princess
oso known as Prosecutor Mata Hari

main cast:
Kim So Yeon as Ma Hye Ri
Park Shi Hoo as Seo In Woo
Han Jung Soo as Yoon Se Joon
Choi Song Hyun as Jin Jung Sun

no princess royalty here. Hye Ri is termed a 'princess' cos of her personality. in which beauty and self comes before work ethics, teamwork and duty.

she's not a bimbo. she's got brains. she made prosecutor. and she has her own way of thinking and handling cases. so she rubs her colleagues the wrong way when she flaunts her wealth, puts her own priorities (like shopping and spending time with friends) over that of the team (which means no overtime for her!)

so she got dumped on the side by her colleagues, who just gave her stamp duty work. when she realised she had been wrong, she changes her mindset and works hard to gain the respect of her colleagues.

along the way, she meets 2 cute guys and uncovers some dirty secrets of her dad's past.

my score: 8 out of 10.
the cases in the drama are perfect for showcasing the talents of the princess prosecutor. the mysterious and handsome lawyer helping her out dont hurt either.

why you should watch it:
brilliant concept of today's women at work. why should she have to conform to the boring prosecutor dress code when there is no such regulation in place? and why should people always have to work overtime and not get paid? lol and rofl. but ultimately, she understands why her colleagues do it - its so that the people get a fair deal in every case. sure, they need more people to handle the cases, but in the meanwhile, they are the only ones who can do it.

ok ok, i fudged a lot. actually, just watch it for Kim So Yeon. she is the ice lady in Gourmet. it's so refreshing to see her in a playful state.
