Synopsis

Goong is a story about young love in face of tradition, politics, and intrigue. In the imaginary world, modern-day Korea is a constitutional monarchy and the Royal Family lives in a grand Palace, the Goong. Story opens with the sudden death of the reigning the King. Faced with the decreasing popularity among the public for the Royalty, a grand wedding for the Crown Prince, Lee Shin, is decided to be the best publicity move to improve the image of the Royalty and at the same time prepare Shin for immediate succession. The intended bride? The headstrong, awkward, and sweet spirited Shin Chae Kyung that just happens to go to the same exclusive art school. Chae Kyung was betrothed to become the next Crown Princess by her grandfather and Shin’s grandfather.

After 14 years of living in England with his mom, Lee Yul appears all of a sudden. He is Shin’s cousin as well as the former Crown Prince. Everything seemed to be going normally until Chae Kyung’s optimistic spirit wins the heart of internally lonely, Yul. As the Crown Prince Shin and simple-minded Chae Kyung’s relationship appear to developing deeper feelings, a series of scandals are exposed to the public right after the pair were officially announced married. Will love prevail all in a world of political pressures and martial hardships? Or will being in the spotlight of the public be too much for the young newlyweds to endure?

    It kind of drags at times. Then you have Prince Yul with the lipstick and the Femenine prndant. His mother with that stupid wig on once she is back on the palace. Yoon Eun Hye acts like a stupid kid all the time and she does active an airhead do why would the prince fall in love with her, not that I like the ballerina pone

    remarkably, this drama is still among my favorite korean dramas of all time. ^^ i still get excited to watch it even after 2 or 3 times it was first shown here in the philippines. it still makes me laugh, cry and get pulled at the heartstrings whenever i watch it. it is like a timeless classic that never goes out of style. i also think this is yoon eun hye’s best drama performance, and the character suits her very well. i do agree that she and joo ji hoon look good together as a couple. ^^ hoping for another good royal drama like this one.

    SHIN GOON! SHIN GOON! SHIN GOON! Chaegyung really loved him so much. She cried nonstop and the scene where she ran behind the car was so heartbreaking. The last episode is full of cries. After the solving the problems they had, they met again. That meeting should be filled with hugs and kisses. Hahaha. Awkward moment for the two. Aigoo! They got married again. It’s not really satisfying because they should show the couple’s life after they had a child. I’m just imagining it and it makes me feel that the two are really very sweet and at a young age, they already had a cute family! Ashishi. :) I feel sad because I can’t imagine that I already finished watching this drama. I will never forget this. I was not able to watch this last 2006 but this really made me love Korean dramas more and more. I’m currently watching Ju Ji-hoon in “Medical Top Team” and he changed a lot after the controversies he faced. His face got slimmer than the way he looked during “Princess Hours”. Despite that, I like him. :)

    Princess hours is great! I want to watch it again and again. Shin chaegyung was the best in terms of loving. She is very cheerful and happy. I wish princess hours have a part 2. Please please. I want to see their lives after they got married again and have many childrens. I really love this show.
