The acting, story, and overall execution of everything else from props to cinematography are absolutely outstanding. This drama made me laugh, made me angry, and everything in between. The acting was superb, eliciting such a strong reaction from me at times I had to pause because my crying got too much that I could no longer see/read the subtitles. Absolutely wonderful and I would recommend this to ANYBODY. It was extremely well balanced and has all the factors a good drama needs. This was the first Taiwanese drama I did not skip through at all.
Well scripted, well acted and PERFECTLY casted. The cast and crew have done an amazing job to bring us such a wonderful drama. I cried, I laughed, I felt like I was there, suffering with the characters through it all and enjoying the moments of peace and joy. I absolutely LOVE this drama, best Romeo and Juliet story I've ever watched. The cinematography and costumes added to the high quality of this drama and I honestly can't complain! Even if the ending was the opposite of what it turned out to be, I would still love this drama. It was just so well put together. Recommend this as a MUST WATCH for any historical drama lover. Not only is the main love line so well done, but even side love lines and side plots and stories tied together so well! Even some of the greatest dramas out there had loose string when it came to side plots, but I don't think The Princess' Man did. Thank you for the show, and bravo! I will miss it dearly.
Before I get into the JapaneseVSKorean debate, as a stand alone, this drama was very enjoyable. The acting was not the best I've seen, but it was still of good quality. Chemistry was decent, and it was scripted well enough. PERSONALLY, I do prefer the Japanese version. It wins when it came to being well detailed, developed and produced. I also found the acting in the Japanese version to be much more deep and touching. That aside, both versions are a good watch. And the only thing I have to add is (because I've seen it countless times) just because there are better looking actors in one version, doesn't make it better. People are so naive and hormonal these days. Idiots. I would recommend both versions.
