Kim Tae-hee dresses as a fake Korean princess

In these stills for MBC’s My Princess, the costuming of series star Kim Tae-hee is really just a sly wink at the audience, because this has nothing to do with her rags-to-riches Cinderella turn after her character, Lee Seol, is discovered to be a real princess.

Instead, the scene depicts Seol in a princess costume as a part-time gig, before she makes the discovery of her true identity as lost royalty. Seol’s a penny-pincher who’ll do just about anything (legal, one assumes) to earn some spare cash, which is how she ends up wearing all this traditional royal finery. It’s here that she happens to meet a Western princess, and they end up taking a photo together.

What I really want to find out, and what remains to be seen, is what kind of setting leads to this whole commoner-to-princess storyline. Will the drama employ a fantasy twist that revives the old monarchy? Will it create an alternate reality where the monarchy never ended, a la Goong? Or will it do something else altogether? I’m itching to know.

She looks more refined, but I think Kim Tae Hee looks really attractive, especially in the first photo.

Going to have to disagree here.

W/ KTH there, barely notice the white actress (but then again, as white actresses go, she's not that attractive).

I think they both look very beautiful. KTH looks much more animated (haha, couldn't resist) than her blond counterpart, but maybe blondie is supposed to look bored off her gourd (?)

Oh, and I covet blondie's hat.

this plot reminds me a of the taiwanese drama "romantic princess" [Starring Barbie chu+Wu chun] + some of "Goong S" [not goong because lee hoo was found out to be a real prince while chae kyung was the prince's bride-to-be]

Hope this drama will come ou well ^^

Even in that main picture you used, she looked one-dimensional. I just don't understand the popularity that surrounds Kim Tae Hee. She was VERY dissappointing in IRIS.

The more I see on this, the more interested I am in it. Honestly GoonG is my third favorite drama of all time and I can honestly say that if this is anything like it , I will more and likely love it to bits.

I suppose that the idea of a character turning into a real princess isn't completely exciting for me, but I do want to see how, like JB mentioned, the setting will be.

I think after Goong, a fresher aproach to this whole monarchy needs to be done. Which is why I'm hoping that after it's found out that KTH is a princess, that results in plans for the monarchy to be re-established (though she's a princess, and not really a prince......).

On a side note, I'd like another Goong 2.0. Except more closely following the actualy manhwa and the ENTIRE story.

First picture that got me interested. I like these rags to riches story but unless it can match up or at least be comparable to Goong/Princess Hours, it's not going to hold my interest considering the feedback i'm hearing about the two leads' acting.

oh Goong, so nostalgic. It remains one of my top 2? top? top 3? Kdramas ever.

behold, a rare unicorn shows up: a good-looking, believable western extra. Haven't seen a lot of them this year.

This screams cliche and overused storyline, but who knows. It might turn out sweet and fresh and engaging.

I know!!
I always get the impression that they go to the nearest bar to cast these extras.

It is as if all the talented people are out really earning money, so all they get are the dregs.
They all look "rode hard and put away wet."

No disrespect intended...;)

javabeans, now you've got me itching to know how the drama is going to address the issue of a monarchy in modern korea.
personally i'd like the monarchy to be revived with the discovery of the 'long-lost princess' rather than there be an alternate reality in which the monarchy still exists a la goong.
looking forward to finding out :)

Wow, I have yet to be wowed by KTH's acting, but you have to admit the girl is seriously beautiful. And her hanbok is so refined and elegant! I think hanboks are more beautiful than any other national costume in the world (although being korean might make me biased). :)

I think the reason why one notices Kim Tae Hee first is because of the colorful clothes and hair. The blond is washed out because of the drab color of her clothes. Although both are very pretty, I think the blond edges out KTH in looks.

maybe it's so that they can show off their power and status through their magnificent hair style?

or... maybe they twisted and twirled their hair so big that their face would look smaller...:P

Because typical Korean girls are mostly fatty fatty one, that's why the tradtional clothing has a small cutting above the breast, and long dress down to cover the butts and elephant legs.

The girls need to put up Micky hats to make them look more proportionally correct. Otherwise, most of them will look like baby elephant or a koala inside a meatball. just imagine that for a minute!! hehe...

That's the conclusion my brother and I drawn after observing so many gores walking on the street in Korea. I know I deserve to be smacked!!

Korean women did their hair like that (note: it's a wig, mind you; made from long hair extensions...) since having thicker hair means you're lucky & gonna be prosperous (altho on what terms, that I don't know), according to oldy in-laws...
...and also it's a part of aestheticism; larger & more outrageous wigs the better (try to remember Marie Antoinette's various "poufs au sentiment")

Now, it doesn't have to be a wig all the time; it can be all natural (meaning your hair), since Confucianism had that belief that it is improper to harm/damage your body, and that includes cutting off your hair (from all parts).
(other no-nos of the same thing include no earrings)

(sorry it's incomplete)

about the no-cutting-the-hair: since it was like that during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), it is quite possible to assemble those hairstyles using only your all-natural long hair...

...now if Rapunzel were only Korean, it would be easy for her...and it would be the perfect example for anyone interested...(not unlike someone up there...*cough*)

now about the accessory anyone (without offense) calls "Micky Mouse ears"...
...well, from my deduction, I think it's based on Chinese hairstyles...if anyone remembers "Fushigi Yuugi", visualize Miaka in her Suzaku priestess attire...and visualize her hairstyle; I think it's based on that...
...and it's called "tteoguji" (the accessory looking like Mickey Mouse), and was once made from braided hair also...but since any wigs of hair were heavy, they made it wooden instead...as seen from Goong and other historical dramas...

At first..I'm not really interested in this drama but I do love the story that rags to turn rich...after so much stills posted and the short trailer about this drama..I think I will check this drama. I think we need to watch the first 2 episode then we can follow it through if the storyline and acting interesting.

Well, when I saw Kim Tae-hee in that outfit, suddenly I'm reminded of Goong, tho there the semblance ends, since:
*Goong's Shin Chae-gyeong in the traditional apparel was meant for the wangsejabins (princess consort for the royal crown prince), and is therefore more darker in the greenish hue.
*While this one's green wonsam is kinda normal (normal in the sense that green wonsam was used for the concubines, the other ladies of the Internal Ministry (sang-goongs included), the ladies of the External Ministry (including the wives of the ministers), and for the commoners' weddings)

I saw the similar article in allkpop telling that Kim Tae-hee's a bit lucky since the outfit she wore was less than the traditional outfit reserved for the royal princesses (may they be the royal daughters by the Queen Consort or by the concubines), which I'm assuming is quite much heavy (in terms of the silk and the wig)...
