Park Ye-jin fights for Song Seung-heon in My Princess

Park Ye-jin (Queen Seon-deok) will be joining the production of romantic-comedy drama My Princess as the girlfriend to rich boy Song Seung-heon, the grandson and heir to Daehan Group. Park’s father is the head secretary of Daehan Group’s CEO, while she works at a museum.

Since Kim Tae-hee has already been cast as the lead, this means that their relationship is doomed; Park will inevitably lose out to her rival. But don’t feel too bad for her; she’s a “femme fatale” type of careerwoman who has her eye on success and uses Song Seung-heon’s love as a strategic advantage. At least, until another woman enters the picture and gets her jealousy rarin’: Kim Tae-hee plays an ordinary woman who becomes “Korea’s princess” — and in this drama, we mean princess literally, not as a nickname. Park Ye-jin is spurred into action to reclaim Song Seung-heon, but we know that it’ll be too late.

Given the description, the character seems like a thoroughly unlikable type, so I’m banking on Park Ye-jin to make her the love-to-hate-her type, which is ever so much more fun than the standard hate-her-get-her-off-my-screen kind of manipulating meddler.

Directing My Princess is PD Kwon Seok-jang of romantic comedies Pasta and What’s Up Fox, and co-writing is Kim Eun-sook, who just premiered her current project, the fun and zippy Secret Garden. The other writer, Jang Young-shil, also worked on writer Kim’s On Air and Lovers.

My Princess will air in January as a Wednesday-Thursday MBC show. (Gulp. Will it break the so-called curse? Or have we lost another one to the MBC midweek black hole?)

I agree. She looks really weird in this picture. I love her since Hateful but Once Again, she is great! I wish she had the lead, but I'm sure she will steal the show!

I'd say no and yes, it's doomed. But hey, you never know, miracles can happen.

i'd love her to be a lead in dramas too but i wouldn't want her to be so if all she has to do is to look pretty without depth to her character (which would've suited Kim Tae Hee perfectly cos there's not much acting to do).

WELL, if it was just Song Seung-heon & Kim Tae-hee - i would've said it's lost. BUT with Park Ye-jin's addition, i feel that they have a good chance - hoping that the writers will pull through though.

I think it'll break the course, it's totally gonna hit the adults to watch it. A lot of grannies love SSH! Ratings should be at least decent for this one !

I love PYJ as an actress and a person (i.e Family Outing <3!). And no doubt that she is a far better actress than KTH, who I find is incredibly boring. I'm rooting for PYJ's character already ... :)

Kim Tae Hee is a female lead...I know people say she can't act but I just like her onscreen, regardless. Can't wait to see SSH in a rom-com, I think he's really funny and is drop dead gorgeous. They could be brother and sister, though, they look alike. I"m so glad SSH has age appropriate female leads lately, I like Lee Yeon Hee and all but there was just something about their pairing that was skeevy to me,dunno why. I quess it's trendy for male actors to act with female leads ten years younger than them and even female lead actresses to act with younger male stars and I didn't mind other pairing with that difference...guess it's just my jealousy, hehe.

i know for a fact the director REALLY wanted yejin. he even waited until her schedule with HEAD was finished for her addition. : )

her character seems to be extremely headstrong. the first thing i thought about was What Happened in Bali. LOL
i'm just excited she's back! <3

:( i miss her from the variety scene. she'd be a great addition to any program. hahahaa (that involves catching chickens and sharpening knives) :D

What is the MBC midweek curse about? Haven't heard of it before...you mean the shows that they air during that period all have sucky ratings?

Dunno why, but I have a rather irrational determination to like this show. The storyline sounds cliche (chaebol and all) but perhaps PYJ will be its saving grace.

The picture doesn't give her justice! Just saw her latest clinique photoshoot and she doesn't look that old.

Anyways, anyone knows what is the agency of PYJ? How come she's always stuck with these crappy roles? Why can't her agency cast her as a lead in a drama? They should've took advantage of the enormous popularity she gained in Family Outing but instead they cast her in HBOA - the script was just so bad and you can't really call that as her own drama because the veteran actors took the screen time, then they cast her in QSD - again she's not the lead and her character was out of the show too fast. She's been in the industry for a long time already, she deserves more than this.

"Anyways, anyone knows what is the agency of PYJ?"

Bae Yong Joon's agency BOF. They specialize in putting their actors in Hallyu shows, such as this one, and promoting them internationally.

PYJ's contract with BOF/Keyeast expired already and she didn't renew it, I don't know what's her agency now.

I agree that BOF didn't really took care of PYJ properly. BOF is one of the big talent agencies in Korea, like Namoo and SidusHQ. I expected that they can cast her as the lead of a big drama but alas, looks like PYJ is not of their priorities.

Anyhow, I wish the best for her.

I agree KTH is boring and brings nothing to the screen as an actor. This isn't meant as a dig but I do wonder how she keeps pulling leads.

I don't know much about Park Ye Jin outside of Family Outing and I didn't recognize her in the photo. I don't think I will be watching this.

She's (Kim Tae Hee) just dull.

Honestly, I don't get why so many Koreans are infatuated with her... I find her 'natural' beauty overrated, too, or maybe I'm still bitter that her character in IRIS still ended up with Hyun Jung--should've been with SeonHwa instead but I blame it mainly for the IRIS writers poor writing and character/romantic development between Hyun Jung & SeonHwa.

i'd rather watch Park Ye Jin in a lead role in a more interesting-sounding drama, but if she's in this drama, then it's worth trying it out. she'll surpass both KTH and SSH in acting no doubt....

also, why are there so many female characters "working in a museum"? i mean there are other jobs out there, you know. just sayin', is all.

well at least there's someone who could really act that's added in the production but still i hope that pyj's character would not be a waste in this prod... actually im more intrigued with the second lead actors (pyj and rsy which is reunited after many years since their last prod)...

the ratings will be very high, but i wonder if there will be any chemistry between SSH and KTH. Let's sure hope so *crosses fingers*
