    Ma Hye Ri Says:

    I only began to watch this drama because she has my name!!!
    Hye Ri is just like me, but I am a cooperative lawyer.
    I think she is a perfect example of how people cannot notice whether they are being unique and just full or rude and pathetic

    NOT TRYING TO BE RUDE IN ANY WAY

    Cr: Jinsight Reviews

    Extracts of PP’s review in link above

    “Drama ratings and reviews are often led more by the heart than the mind, a fact that I’m well-aware of, considering my many rants and raves here. While rants tend to be more satisfying, sometimes it’s just magical to find a drama that makes you go do exactly the opposite – to post because it’s SO GOOD rather than because it pissed you off. Prosecutor Princess is that drama for me.

    I understand intellectually that it’s not the best production I’ve ever seen – the beginning was slow, the music at times overbearing, and the awful hair Hye-Ri sported in the first 4 episodes (before production got sensible and pulled it into a ponytail for the rest of the run). But it was a drama that captured my heart, in a way that no drama before or since has so completely.

    I got a hold of the DVD set last week, and figured it was time for a rewatch. With my newly raised drama standards and existent knowledge of the plot, I wanted to test if I’d still love it as much now as I did almost two years ago, or if new and intolerable flaws come to light.

    Having recently completed the marathon, I’m happy to say it still stands as my all-time favorite drama :) The acting just wows me in every scene, and the storyline so tightly written and beautifully presented that it never once skewed irredeemably towards the unbelievable or inconsistent. Certainly, some elements such as make-up and clothing could have been toned down (i.e. fat Hye Ri and early Hye Ri), but the plot, dialogue, and characters remained continually solid.

    I can understand why some people were turned off to our heroine, Ma Hye Ri, at the start. The first two episodes do a terrible job of introducing her, making her seem selfish, naive, and ridiculous in both mannerisms and appearance. It’s only due to Kim So Yeon’s sensible and grounded performance that I actually didn’t mind Hye Ri then, who came across as more spoiled but good-natured than bratty. Hye Ri of course, ended up being one of the most endearing, realistic, intelligent heroines I’ve ever watched.

    I’m sad that the first couple of episodes don’t do her justice, but I’ll accept that in a way it was necessary to paint her poorly, because much of the joy of her character came from watching her transform and really grow as a person from the first to the last scene. What I loved here is that unlike other drama “character development,” Hye Ri always remained Hye Ri. She continues her quirkiness and open-heartedness, believably maturing without losing her charm or personality. Probably one of the best-drawn lead girls in all of dramaland – if you haven’t watched PP yet, just bear through the first few episodes and I guarantee that she’ll grow on you.

    Jinsight Review of PP (cont’d)

    Filling out our central couple is the deeply conflicted and complex Seo In Woo. I never understood the shipping wars. I mean, clearly In Woo was our man from the very beginning – that “chance” hotel meeting? I still recall it as my first exposure to Park Shi-hoo, and what an absolute swoon moment it was.

    How could anyone not be charmed immediately by that smile, that brilliant charisma and the understated-yet-essential presence of his character? While second lead Se Joon was out running with a mountain coat and some who-cares guys, In Woo was standing there in white-decked magnificence, looking puzzled yet mysterious as he is introduced to to the audience and our heroine.

    Admittedly, he was stalkerish for much of the drama, but it didn’t come across as creepy so much as intriguing and oddly sweet (here’s a guy with great timing for everything). It also added a new dimension to the plot – the writers never had to rely on “random” encounters in order to get our leads in close proximity

    Instead, every meeting was pre-orchestrated by our guy, all for a believable and understandable secret cause that justifies and ties it all together at the end. Sounds weird, but was fascinating to watch, especially this second time around, when I already knew and understood In Woo’s inner motivations. And a wonderfully unique premise in a land where “fate” and cliches abound onscreen. In Woo’s actions, while a bit extreme, perfectly exemplify the idea of creating one’s own destiny. If he hadn’t gone through with his plan for justice, or if the source situation had never emerged, these two people would likely have remained strangers for the rest of their lives. Instead, they are forced to know and comprehend one another, and unwittingly fall in love along the way.

    For In Woo, the gradual lingering gazes, the layered uncertainty in eyes at wondering if she’ll go to Japan, even the eating from her ramen bowl (so fitting for the scene!) just killed me. PSH nailed In Woo’s pain and inner conflict, tied with his reluctant affection for Hye Ri. This, after all, was the drama that started my (and many other girls I’m sure) fancraze for PSH. No one else could have brought such depth and likeability to a controversial character like In Woo.

    And yes, this was the drama that sparked my love for Korean ramyun. Who wouldn’t want to eat a nice warm bowl after watching the episode 8 cooking scene? It made me sad that we didn’t get so many cute OTP moments post-episode 9, because this was a pair that had some of the best dialogue and actions ever. Give me the direct, upfront store-trips and piggybacks, not the multitude of almost-touching-but-not scenes that crop up later. I can understand why the drama had to go serious, but I sure missed the good old happy Hye Ri – In Woo days.

    Production-wise, this drama just nailed it. It was a bit shaky at the start, with unnecessary dressiness and loud, obnoxious music. But this was a crew that definitely improved – after the first few episodes, the music transformed from refrains of Fly High to soft ballads and moody instrumental pieces. To this day Goodbye My Princess is my favorite kdrama song. It plays quite a bit, but not to the point where I ever got tired of it. It was so perfectly fitting for the drama’s story and presence- in fact, I suspect it’s one of the reasons why PP underwent a title change to include “Princess.”

    Also, the scenes were shot with such focus and clarity. People and items are positioned purposefully on the screen, never haphazardly. Even better, there’s almost none of that “present one scene shot from three different angles” crap. Instead, the director sticks to one angle and only presents that to show any moment in time. He may move the camera around during the scene, such as when Hye-Ri and In Woo kiss the first time – they only show one angle of the actual moving-in-for-the-kiss, even though it’s followed by different shots of the kiss itself. Similarly, the walking past one another scene in late episodes, the camera slows and the angle shifts from them to their hands, but the actual passing moment isn’t repeated. I like that- it shows careful thought and decision-making by the PD on how to present the shot rather than just mangling a bunch of views together (as Taiwan dramas tend to do).

    I wish the ending had been longer – in fact, this is one show that I honestly feel could have benefitted rather than suffered from one. Not so much for the trial portion, since we all know where that was going, but for more OTP fluff. There was so much jammed into the eventful 16th episode that I felt our reunion wasn’t fully fleshed out. And wow, that departure in the pale-blue morning scene just ripped my heart out. So beautiful, so tragic, it was like saying goodbye to the drama itself.

    I highly recommend that you watch this gem of a show if you haven’t, and if you have, consider a rewatch on a rainy day, as there’s so much to analyze and appreciate each time.
