Movie Reviews

Great series, quality release
A Reviewer | Mesa, AZ | 11/27/2006

"I love this Kdrama. It has everything--great characters, gorgeous costumes and sets, an interesting storyline, and lots of fun! In a fanciful tale set in modern day South Korea, the country's crown prince and an ordinary schoolgirl find themselves in an arranged marriage thanks to their grandfathers' whims. Now two opposite personalities must somehow come together in this 'political marriage' and stand the test of jealous rivals, scheming royalty, and the media always following their every move. Filmed in beautiful locations with an exquisite production design, this modern-day fairy tale is sure to please anyone--whether Korean or not. I was pleased to see that this U.S. release by YA Entertainment did justice to the series; not only is the packaging beautiful, but there are also quality English subtitles and a fairly wide array of bonus features. I would recommend this show to anyone who loves a fairy tale romance with a beautiful cast and lots of comedy along the way. However, I would recommend purchasing Palace through another source such as [...]."

"This is a film set in fictional modern day Korea. It has a soap opera feel but is suitable for all audiences. When a young girl Chae-kyeong(19) learns that she is the fiancee of prince Lee Shin, she is shocked and surprised. She eventually agrees to marry him to help her family who is about to go bankrupt. Unfortunately prince Lee Shin is a difficult young man to like, and Prince Yool (his cousin) has also fallen for her. Will Chae-Kyeong win her husband's heart or is she destined for heartbreak?

Thus begins a love triangle which takes up most of this film. I admit, although I found Prince Lee Shin hot, I preferred Prince Yool for his devoted qualities. Some of the things Lee tells Chae-Kyeong are pretty terrible. Also some of the costumes were really outrageous.

I enjoyed Chae-Kyeong. The actress who plays her is fantastic and her facial expressions are great. I really wish there will be a second season, but that doesn't look to be in the cards. Overall, this was a vastly entertaining series."

"I love Princess Hours. I rented it on Netflix, I didn't really know what to expect when I read their review. It had such high ratings from the people who watched it, I had to give it a try. I'm very glad I did. I'm not the kind of person to watching anything girly or sugar sweet. But this was perfect. It's got a great balance of comedy and drama. There is a realistic depth to the characters, which makes them likable. I was laughing and crying the whole way. I spent a lot of the time on the edge of my seat waiting to see how things turned out. Waiting for the next disc was painful.
The basic plot:
Modern day Korea, but with a twist. There saying what if the Monarchy system was still in place. It's all about what happens when an old promise between the last King and his friend who was a commoner, for there grandchildren to marry. Enter Crown Prince Shin, still in high school mind you, who's as vain and egotistical as they come. Then there's Chea-Kyung (Gyung in the Korean version), sweet, loud and very determined. The two are forced into an arranged marriage. That only the beginning, the real fun starts after there married and have to live together. With both of them being pursed romantically by other people, and having to keep face for the Royal family. There going to have to learn to like each other, weather they want to or not.
Funny, sad, romantic, and jaw dropping, this show is a must see. It's a little slow the first 2 episodes. But they help lay the foundation for all the fun that comes after them. This is a must see for all those who love Kdramas, or anyone who loves TV dramas in general."

"Never heard this korean drama before and after watching the movie clips in YouTube, I immediate bought the DVD and i looooooove it. Warm, light and romantic. I love Crown Princess(Yoon). She is very funny and you can easily relate to her being quirky and airhead. I am hooked. I highly recommend this K-drama eventhough i dont understand korean and just watching it thru subtitles. Still, if you are a romantic and is a sucker for cinderella type movies, this one's for YOU!"
