[KDrama – The Princess’ Man] An Introduction and Preview

My favorite boy toy Park Shi Hoo is back on TV with a period drama, The Princess’ Man starring opposite Moon Chae Won, Hong Soo Hyun and Song Jong Ho. The drama is the Korean version of Romeo & Juliet and will take the time slot vacated by Romance Town.

I am not a huge fan of the sageuk-period type of drama (except for Sungkyunkwan Scandal and Seoul’s Scandal) but since Shi Hoo’s the male lead that I’ve decided to give it a try. I hope it doesn’t disappoint me because I loved all his projects. So here’s the synopsis, character description and teasers.
