Princess Hours

Warning: some spoilers ahead

I’ve only watched two Korean TV series: Winter Sonata and Princess Hours. I really liked Winter Sonata but I didn’t finish that series because I always seem to be shedding tears left and right and the whole theme seems to be revolving around sadness. It’s a good series but I think it’s just too sad.

Princess Hours, in contrast, is such a fun series that I enjoyed watching it all the way to the mildly cheesy ending. I watched it with the same fervor that I give to my favorite TV series (e.g. 24, One Tree Hill, Prison Break, etc.). I watched it continuously at a time when I should be working weekends. Suffice to say that I was able to finish the TV series in one weekend. That’s how addicted I was. My sister Mary watched it with me and we were usually laughing with the antics of the characters.

I love the Crown Princess and Crown Prince. Yoon Eun Hye plays the Crown Princess and is so pretty and so funny. She’s just plain adorable. Joo Ji Hoon plays the Crown Prince. Saw somewhere that this is his acting debut. Not bad. Not bad at all. He’s got good angles when you’d think he’s quite handsome but then in most moments he looks plain. I think though that he played the character well.

I loved the whole series and really had a great time watching it. I am so looking forward to the sequel.

If you happen to watch it, you’ll probably enjoy the bears as well. I thought it was a nifty idea. =)

Im hearing too many things about this new korean novela dubbed as "Princess Hours". The last of the same type I watched was Jewel in the Palace. I guess, I am bound to take a peek in you tube.

Good day! *hop!* *hop!*

Give it a try. It is definitely a good watch.

Princesses Can Be Bullies Too

People think of bullies as someone who are bigger, older. Someone who can physically hurt another and uses that power to bully someone else...
