If you had a chance to live a much different life, would you take it? A happy-go-lucky fishmonger, Liu Wen Bin (Ah Bin) (Xie Kun Da), lives and works in a small village and has for the most part been content with his way of life. But one day, he meets Yi Wei Lian (William) (also played by Xie), a city man who has been involved in an accident. Because he bears such a strong resemblance to William, Ah Bin is forced into a situation where he has to assume the identity of William. But can Ah Bin fool William’s sister, Yi Xin (Andrea Chen), a journalist, and keep her from discovering his true identity? “Prince William” is a 2014 Taiwanese drama series directed by Huang Tian Ren.

Story: So we have two people that look identical even though there is no blood relation at all. One is rich and one is poor. Usually in these stories, we find out that they are somehow related down the line.. like a long lost twin brother or what not.. but not here. They are not related at all. Obviously something happens to the rich guy and the poor guy is hired to take his place. Initially I thought it would just be a reversed version of King Flower, but it grew to be a story more of it's own! [Spoiler coming up!] What weird-ed me out the most was the sister falling for the guy that looks like her brother. I can never imagine that happening in reality XD unless.. incest? No!

Acting/Cast: Having seen Ken in alot of dramas lately, he's become one of my favourite actors. His acting in this was absolutely superb! It is not easy playing two roles in one drama and he played them both very well and believable. He is such a versatile actor! If you like Ken.. then this is a must watch! Paul made a really adorable assistant and he's quirky character was quite like-able. Enjoyed his moments with Ken alot.. him being the scared little boy with the rich Ken... and him being the cheeky little boy with the poor Ken <3 Loved it! As for the main lead Andrea, I'm not really familiar with her but I think her acting was the weakest in this but she does have alot of room for improvement.

Music: The opening song was quite catchy actually, so were alot of the sub-songs. I think this drama had a really nice soundtrack.

Rewatch Value: As good as Ken's acting was in this I probably wouldn't watch it again. I liked the pacing of this drama and how everything was not predictable. So since I know exactly what happens.. I have no reason to watch again. Although I would love to see Ken lead in another drama soon.

Overall: I didn't quite like the drama at first.. but by I think the 3rd or 4th episode I started slowly getting hooked! I was always looking forward to each week for the new episode to come out XD I felt it just kept getting better and better and better. I actually gave this a 6 originally and was about to drop it but am so glad that I watched it til the end. I loved the development of the story and the way it was wrapped up. The pacing was great and I didn't feel like it was dragged or rushed at any point. Of course Ken was perfect in this. As I compared this to King Flower at first, I could say this drama had a much more solid storyline... but who could resist Chris AKA Terry in that one <3
