The Empress is in her early 30s, but she is still not married. Since, the 1st successor to the throne died, the royal family is in search for a new successor. Incidentally, they come to know of a young man who was in fact a son of the prince to a woman who left the Palace for her to be able to keep her pregnancy a secret. The young man's name was read moreLee Hoo, more commonly known to his friends as Kang Hoo. Lee Hoo worked as a delivery boy at a Chinese restaurant, and was known for his 7-minute maximum delivery time. Lee Hoo had been brought up as more of a punk than a prince so his habits and his way of conversing were very different from the people of royal blood. Although he had never dreamt of living in the Palace, he one day finds himself immersing himself in its grandeur and improving himself to prove that he indeed deserves to be called the Successor to the throne.
He soon finds out that not only will he be facing lessons to the path of royalty, and dilemmas of love and of stature, but he will also learn to compete for the position he had been, first and foremostly, called for.

First of all it was actually really hard to find links to watch this drama. I know that I missed out on a lot b/c of that reason. If u watch this don't expect the links on epdrama.com or dramacrazy.net to work all the time. The wat links don't even try b/c u will be disappointed.



Ok well now let me get down to bizness. I loved this read more story more than I did the 1st 1. This made more sense of how the characters came together. I really enjoyed watching the characters develop & the relationships. There was some good rock music that was played at different times throughout this drama. I might watch this again but it is not on my high priority list of rewatchable dramas. Even though this drama is slow to move through the story at times, it will keep u interested & wanting to know what is going to happen next. I think this is a drama that others will either just love or just hate, but u have to watch it to find out which group u will be in.



I personally think this would have been a much better drama if it was like a continuation of the 1st season. I think I would have understood the story a little more if the parents of the Dukes had been the cousins from the previous season, but it was still good the way it was.

I like the story of this drama and the acting was pretty good too. The music accentuated the scenes in the drama pretty well but I can not watch it again because to me it was a slow paced drama and I do not have much tolerance for these types. Personally, I believe Goong:Princess Hours was better.

Make a Recommendation More recs (1)Recommendations

The two male leads have a thing for the Main female lead. However the Female lead has someone in her heart.
Just like boys for flowers the love triangle exists.

It s a mix of boys over flowers and the parent story Goong.
Recommended by Tharushini
This is sort of a standalone sequel/remake of the Korean of Princess Hours, which, this Thai version is a remake of.

      No, it's not a sequel.

      It's a standalone show with a similar theme.

      The summary is long but to shorten it - the lead is a 'lost' prince who is brought in to palace life with the expectation by those who found him that he will train and become the crown prince/heir.

      The similarity is mainly in that both leads (Yoon Eun Hye and Se7en) grew up 'normally' and have to adjust to palace life. Conflicts between old life and new life arise.

      But you do not need to watch Goong to watch Goong S. They have similar themes in them but they are not directly related.

    Does anyone know if the Queens aid was also in Princess hours as the crown princesses aid ? This is driving me nuts also I think the manager was in both dramas but can't find complete list of cast anywhere to compare. If anyone knows would appreciate .

    It's been years since I watched this but I remembered liking this very much, which was a surprise since everyone around me told me this was a bad drama.
    I was obsessed with this drama and came to like Se7en (even bought his CDs, ha).

    Just dropping my two cents, despite the bad reviews I came to really like Goong S (even more than Goong, which I adored), so what can I say? Taste is really subjective. Give this a try, you never know, you may end up liking it!

    Really liked the ending :) I'm surprised to hear that people didn't like Kang Doo in this... I thought he was the best actor of the bunch. I agree the pacing could have been better but overall I liked it

    It was good at first but it became toooooo slow and too boring. I couldn't finish it! I felt like if actors were moving and talking in slow motion.

    sooooooooooooooo boring. dont bother watching. what irritates me is there is no chemistry between the characters.
