The writer of 2009 runaway hit Shining Inheritance
(also known as Brilliant Legacy)
brings the same inimitable touch to this solidly written, sparkling drama. A romantic comedy take on the traditional Kdrama revenge story, Prosecutor Princess
stars Kim So Yeon, fresh off a charismatic turn as a spy in Iris
, and Park Shi Hoo, rapidly-rising star of Family Honor
. After a slightly uneven start, the story builds to a satisfying climax, hitting pitch-perfect emotional notes as it tells the story of a enigmatic lawyer with a dark secret and the high-maintenance, scarred prosecutor he reluctantly falls in love with.
Ma Hye Ri (Kim So Yeon), having graduated law school with little effort due to her superb memory and high intelligence, has little on her mind at her graduation ceremony but the high-end fashion show which is going on in the mountains at the same time. Escaping the ceremony in favor of skiing and shopping, she has no idea that her weekend of frivolity will set off a chain of events that will change her life forever. Forced to become a prosecutor at the insistence of her wealthy father, she appears as a knowledgeable but unsympathetic lawyer to the co-workers at the law firm she joins, who are scandalized by her fashionable outfits and high heels.
Meanwhile, mysterious lawyer Seo In Woo (Park Shi Hoo) appears to guide her through her first cases, and Hye Ri learns compassion as she struggles with difficult cases, needy clients, and scornful superiors. Dedicated prosecutor Yoon Se Joon (Han Jung Soo) begins to fall for her, but In Woo has always been beside her - until Hye Ri begins to question what his motives are...
Park Shi Hoo and Kim So Yeon bring electric chemistry to their portrayal of two people with secretive pasts who fall in love despite every reason not to.
