A review for those who do not like melodramas;
- Overall 8
- Story 8
- Acting/Cast 8
- Music 8
- Rewatch Value 10
Well I am one of those who really does not like melodramas, still I think one should always give credit for a well done job. So here is a review for those who fear this genre as well as the reputation of the drama.
The Princess' man basically deals with love, friendship and family bonds. The story is pretty good.It is fluent and keeps you on the edge in every episode. Since this is a melodrama the story is a little exaggerated still I think it was acceptable. The caracters are compatible with the story, as well as the actors themselves. I guess most of the audience have fallen for Park Shi Hoo in his black suit
like I did but I think all the leads even the side actors did a very good job. There were one or two scenes where I doubted Park Shi Hoo's acting but I forgave him since he was so cool. Still I am a little confused abaout the caracter developments/changes. I think they were brutaly radical but that is also why you will keep watching. Though I think it was the music that made me watch the drama. The OST is basically no good. The songs are ok but they just do not get you into the drama. The background music on the other hand, is another story. The highly manupulating and addictiv songs "Destino" and "Vola" with their perfect synchronization in the story give you the real feeling of the Princess' Man and raise the re-watch value even if you exactly know what will happen in the end.
Overall I think the Princess' Man is a very good production which probably deserves the first place in his genre. Even if I do not like this kind of stories much, I must confess I enjoyed it to the end. Since it helped me a lot, to distract me from my casual routine I do not think it was a waste of time...
Lastly here comes a warning, I think it is a real challenge to pass the first 8 episodes. Though, if you are patient enough, you will not realize how you reached the end.
