New stills from the set of My Princess

More stills are out from next year’s romantic comedy drama My Princess, starring the very very pretty pairing of Kim Tae-hee (IRIS) and Mr. Hand Towel himself, Song Seung-heon (East of Eden).

The top three images are from the drama’s December 1 outdoor shoot, where the two leads watch a movie together out in the front yard of a vacation home. Since she’s a cheapskate commoner and he’s the rich one (of course!), I’m guessing it’s his place.

The second set of stills are from an earlier shoot, which took place last month. That scene will be seen in the first episode and depicts the couple’s first meeting.

Despite the amount of snark this drama (easily) generates, I have to say I’m looking forward to seeing how it pulls off its premise (or doesn’t): that an ordinary university student suddenly discovers she’s a princess. Will the drama employ some fantasy element, like Goong, that allows modern-day Korea to have a princess? Or are we in for a Princess Diaries setup where she discovers she’s the daughter of some other country’s royal family?

Plus, making her a princess puts her on somewhat more equal footing with the Prince Charming hero, which saves it from being a total Cinderella cliche. Song plays the chaebol businessman diplomat (not even making that up — what, they couldn’t just pick ONE stereotypical character and had to cram three in one?) who falls for her. (Technically, he’s a diplomat who works with foreign royalty, who is also a second-generation chaebol and the sole heir to a major corporation.)

The drama takes up the dreaded Wednesday-Thursday MBC timeslot in January, following the currenly airing Home Sweet Home.

Hahaha I was going to say the same thing about the pink cup. I want one too. And I'm now looking forward to this drama. Although I'm not so fond of the two leads, I like the title and the premise of this drama. Yup, I'm a sucker for such cliche stories.

"He’s a diplomat who works with foreign royalty, who is also a second-generation chaebol and the sole heir to a major corporation" ---> I could not ask for more, seriously. I bet he has some hurting childhood story behind and the cliche will be complete.

Really excited about this drama. I kinda want it to be January so we can see it already. Since it's the same writer as Secret Garden I'm thinking we might have something there. Tae-Hee and Seung Heon in their first ever rom-com-looking forward to it!

Hahaha I'm sorry but looking at the 2nd and 3rd pic again, instead of being mesmerized by SSH's looks (which I never really find attractive, I have no idea why), my eyes fell on his chest, and noticed his manboobs on those pics. He's obviously wearing a white tank, but it emphasizes his man boobs more, making him look like wearing a bra (but he's not). I tried comparing it to Hyun Bin's header (since it was the one featured), but Binnie emits sexiness in that pic with the tattered shirt, while SSH's exudes.. manliness in a girly kind of way? LOL.

Before these picture are leaked, I don't have any intentions to watch this drama. I don't like Autumn Story and IRIS because of them.
But now, I'm so awe to their prettiness, so I definitely put this drama on my 2011 calender. I just hope they can bring this drama just like Song Hye Kyo and Rain in Full House.

from the stills, KTH seems to show some promise - she's got different facial expressions in each photo. not so SSH - he has the same facial expression in all the photos - his eyes still has no life, no spark in them.

LOL at the man-boobs, and yes - he's wearing a bra!

"chaebol businessman diplomat"-- i know there are chaebols in real life (though never as young and goodlooking in kdramas), does such a triple combination exist in real life? How would your regular work week go like? Mondays-FRidays at the office and weekends diplomating around the world?

Call me a Hater, but I freaking Loathe Her! I don't like anything about her except her Eyes.. She's so.... unlikable. (not sure if it's a word but that's how I perceive it).

as for SSH.... I hope he'll not kill it like East of Eden with the abhorrent coldness and immovability! What a Drag. They're called stars for their physical appearance only.

I'm (obviously) in the minority here, but I don't find either attractive in the least. However, after sitting through the first episode of Playful Kiss, I know I can handle anything so I'll at least give this drama a try.

Think it would flop in Korea? so what? KTH and SSH's got a huge following in other Asian countries. I'm not a fan of both..but i like them together, and yes finally, in a comedy drama. Just like to see them in a light role, rather than heavy..way too heavy dramas ...
