My Princess is exceedingly breezy. I find that its winsome OST really goes a long way in elevating its ordinary script and serviceable acting. Other than the early part of episode 1, I find the drama has settled into its groove and doesn’t try too hard to convince me that I must love it.
This week looks to be more plot set-up, but I think that it’ll be done in a tongue-in-cheek way. What I love the most is that the script and the actors are not afraid of mocking their own characters. MP is definitely not pretentious drivel.
