My Princess undergoes a PD switch

Kim Tae-hee and Song Seung-heon‘s new romantic-comedy series, My Princess, is about a month from entering its first shoots for its January 2011 premiere, and has undergone a recent director switch. Originally to be helmed by Hon and Fantasy Couple director Kim Sang-ho, now it’ll be led by Kwon Seok-jang of Pasta and Radish Kimchi.

According to a source with the production, this switch comes as a result of PD Kim incurring an fracture to his left leg that will require 12 weeks to heal. PD Kwon apparently has another drama in the works that is aiming for an October 2011 broadcast, but he’ll be putting that one on the back burner while he tackles My Princess first.

The MBC drama centers around the love of an “ordinary university student” (Kim Tae-hee) and a chaebol-turned-diplomat (Song Seung-heon). Excuse me while I get over my laughing fit at both of those descriptions. It’s like they’re taunting us, Go ahead and try to suspend your disbelief, I dare you. Her character is an older student (as in, she attends university later than the average student) who is described as “sly and thrifty,” and turns into a princess overnight.

Due to the sudden replacement of the director, My Princess is currently undergoing some script revisions. (Eek to last-minute story changes!) It’s being penned by Lovers in Paris and On Air writer Kim Eun-sook, along with new writer Jang Young-shil.

While I don’t have strong opinions about either PD, I’ll admit that I preferred Kim’s work to Kwon’s, and wasn’t much impressed by the look or the pace of the latter’s Pasta (cute drama was cute, but only thanks to the shining two stars and their chemistry). On the other hand, I’d been quite intrigued by the way Kim managed to create the perfect ambiance for his horror-thriller Hon (Soul). Oh well, what can ya do? Watch and laugh at the ridiculous shenanigans, I suppose.

PD change in last minute? enough time for new PD to prepare for interesting, creative scenes? Storyline is ok? PD & storyline are very important to help the drama become hit. 2 famous stars alone are not enough to make the drama get big hit. Further, one more actor (big name), triangle(s), very interesting storyline are needed.

If I am a new actor or actress in Korea I would love the get the 2nd lead...I mean this is literally their time to shine. As someone noted their dramas usually do good so by some miracle people watch their dramas so since the 2 main leads are like corpse trying to act then the 2nd leads will definitely be noticed more and hence their moment to shine will be so easily shown. hehehehe!!!

I am easily pleased so the acting of the main leads won't necessary turn me off (though having recently completed "Sweet Spy", listening to Dennis Oh's acting can be utilised as a form of torture heh).

The plot sounds typical Cinderella-type story but hopefully it will be a bit different. I loved "Pasta" despite its flaws and as has been commented, the chemistry between the leads was sizzling..so here is hoping the same will happen here!.

Why? Will she be taking of her clothes? If she is not then just look at her pictures and make better use of that 1 hour of your life than watch what I feel will be a disaster in the making.

Sorry for the unsolicited advise. Peace!

Sometimes you need to watch something you know will be awful - it makes you appreciate the good things even more. I think I'll check this out just for the car crash/train wreck factor. And Song Seung Heon's pretty face. But mostly to enjoy how awful this is going to be.

Upto now I still can't figure out why k-drama fans consider SSH as "eye candy" or a "pretty face" or "handsome". He looks so ordinary to me. No matter how long and hard I look at his face, I just can't see the "eye candy", "pretty face", "handsome" that people see in him. Other actors, even in their still photos radiate charisma and personlity; SSH in still photos or even in motion lacks depth and personality. There is no inner quality/indefinable something that draws me in. He is like a cardboard or, yes, a robot that most kdrama fans call him.

I'm a little upset that Kim Tae Hee is working yet with another good actor but this time better looking (no offense, Lee Byung Hun).

Her acting is okay and I don't know, like Lee Dae-hee, I find her overrated.

agree to that. although i dont find KTH a good actress, i find her better than Lee Da Hae.
a person with good personality but okay acting is way better than good acting but has b*tch personality

Before the drama begin the script go changing so we will expect more script revamp as Mr SSH and Miss KTH acting begins and also when the film rove !. Might look out for the 2nd leads as they are more interesting to watch.

though the storyline is different, for some reason, this reminds me of the bland tw rom-com drama, Romantic Princess (which sadly has a great opening song- ruined it on a ). SSH isn't as bad as Wu Zun, but they are both known more for their pretty faces.

A light, romantic comedy should be right up their alley, but the premise seems pretty silly.

As for their physical appearance, while preferences are subjective, objectively they are both really attractive people (for instance, the only real flaw KTH has is that her eyes are just a little bit too close to each other).

Am I shallow if I admit I want to watch this because of the hot faces? Never mind the acting talent, I'm sure that will provide a lot of material to mock/enjoy.

Not really a fan of both actors and with the last minute changes from both the PD and script, I must say that this is just the perfect recipe for a disastrous series but then again I like surprises so who knows they might surprise me. I honestly haven't found anything from both their works where I saw them with good chemistry with their co-actors. Pasta is good for me due to the main actors chemistry but these 2 just does not feel right at all. I'd rather watch paint dry that is what I am feeling when I just imagine these 2 together.

How can new director have time to work out the details of scenes or to create new funny, sweet scenes? Director is good? Director has time to prepare for the drama? They have time to make marvelous cinematography? The script has many exciting, romantic, funny situations? Storyline is interesting & logical? Some scenes that are close to real life? I understand, in real life, few is lucky to engage, marry the prince or millionaire, billionaire. Famous actor, actress cannot save the drama if director, script , cinematography, musics, etc... are not well prepared and supporting actors and actresses are not good.

I do not like director of Pasta. He will reduce the ratings of this drama.

He made the chef in Pasta becomes illogical arrogant in first several episodes of Pasta. He made the lead actress in Pasta becomes stupidly stubborn.

I do not know what this director will make casts of my Princess become?
