My Princess is chugging along at just the right speed for me. The character interactions and plot developments feel perfectly paced. I’m neither chafing for the romantic relationship to heat up, nor bored that it’s six-episodes in and Hae Young and Seol aren’t making kissy kissy yet. For whatever reason, I feel like a content passenger on the MP train, enjoying the trip and not over-thinking the journey.
Written preview for episode 7 of MP:
“I will be a princess. There is no feeling of guilt.”
Preparations for the establishment of the Royal Foundation are almost complete, and will be managed by Yoon Joo. After receiving a direct challenge from Yoon Joo, Seol lets go of the feelings of guilt. Seol announces that she plans to live in the palace as a princess going forward. Seol declares war against Yoon Joo.
Before the press conference, Hae Young makes contact with someone who knew Lee An (Seol’s father). Hae Young and Seol go to meet the person who knew her father….
Yay, road trip for Seol and Hae Young! I hope they brought their overnight bags, tee hee. I do so adore this couple, and their little one step forward-two steps back-three steps forward, and so forth, flirting dance.
Double yay for Seol standing right back up to Yoon Joo, who can get eaten by alligators for all I care. MP continues to delight as long as they give me more Hae Young and Seol in each episode.
