YesAsia Editorial Description

Based on a popular comic book series, MBC's hit drama Palace fancifully re-imagines present-day Korea as a constitutional monarchy with a royal family. A beautiful palace, sitting in the heart of modern-day Seoul, becomes the home to a group of young royals pulled into the political rivalries, comical hijinks, and romantic entanglements of palace life. Sparks will fly when youth romance meets palace politics in this colorful romantic comedy!

Palace, a.k.a. Princess Hours, was hailed as "the future of Korea's TV drama industry" by Variety magazine. The innovative premise, vivid cinematography, elaborate sets and costume designs, and fresh young cast charmed the audience, pulling in ratings of nearly 30 percent during its broadcast in Korea. Starring breakout stars Ju Ji Hoon, Yoon Eun Hye of Baby V.O.X., and Kim Jung Hoon of UN, Palace was so popular the series was extended to 24 episodes from its original 20. In addition, a sequel is already in the works.

Shin (Ju Ji Hoon) may be the picture-perfect Crown Prince, but he is aloof and wary of his royal status. Commoner Chae Gyung (Yoon Eun Hye) is headstrong and outspoken, but fiercely loyal to her loved ones. Their worlds unexpectedly collide when an arranged marriage makes them husband and wife! It's not exactly "happily ever after" for this royal odd couple as they try to make sense of their relationship. Chae Gyung has trouble adjusting to palace life and Shin is still pining for his girlfriend Hyo Rin (Song Ji Hyo). Life gets even more complicated when Prince Yool (Kim Jung Hoon) returns to the Palace to compete for both Chae Gyung's affection and the throne.

Product Information


<<宮>>給我們講述了一個在君主制度下,皇子與平民聯姻的現代故事。

因皇帝病情越來越嚴重,皇太子李信(朱智勳飾演)答應太后會儘快和早已訂下婚約的女孩子結婚,而此時的皇太子信還只是一名高中生。他明白身為皇太子,這個特殊的身份自己不會有選擇個人喜好的權利。信在認可婚事之前,曾經秘密交往了一個女朋友閔孝琳(宋知孝飾演),但孝琳拒絕了信的求婚,事到如今這反而讓信感到慶倖,因為他明白一旦嫁入宮中,將不再會有自己的個性,每個人都會變成失去自我的人偶,與其讓自己所愛的人遭遇那樣的境況,還不如隨便找一個自己不認識的女孩子,更能讓他感到安心。

正當申彩靜(尹恩惠飾演)家境陷入困境時,意外地接到來自皇家的信函,此時她的家人才明白之前爺爺一直在吹牛同皇家有婚約一事竟然是真的。天上掉下來的這個“大餡餅”讓彩靜一家人歡呼雀躍,但還是高中生的彩靜卻嚴詞拒絕了這門突然到來的包辦婚姻。最終,身為長女的責任感和家庭的困境讓她無奈接受了這門婚事。

14年前孝列皇太子因車禍而喪生,他的兒子李律(金政勳飾演)受母親之命,回到皇宮爭奪原本屬於自己的王位。隨著這位同樣有著皇位繼承權的律的歸來,原本平靜的皇宮裏掀起了波瀾。包括太后、皇帝在內的所有人都認為單純的律對權利和皇位不會有任何野心,對他的到訪熱情有加,但皇后卻早已看穿了律母親的居心,自己丈夫和兒子的地位已經受到了威脅……

Princess Hours is a drama that starts with the interesting premise. What if modern Korea were a constitutional monarchy with a king? and offers two types of fun the romance arising between a noble prince and an ordinary girl, and the familiarity of all this happening in modern-day Korea. A perfect boy from a noble bloodline, with good looks and a sense of unpolished beauty has to marry against his will at the age of 17. An ordinary girl from an ordinary family, with a clumsy character, average grades and average looks oversteps the prejudice and barriers surrounding her. The process how they fall in love with each other unfolds with excitement.


Shin Chae-kyeong and Lee Shin, because they dont know each other well, go through numerous incidents in which they end up fighting. Chae-kyeong witnesses the scene where Lee Shin proposes to another woman to avoid their arranged marriage and this is how the two become fully aware of each other's feelings. The story evolves from the fact that Chae – kyoung's grandfather was very close to the former monarch, whose wish was for her and Shin to get married. This gives some impetus to the otherwise unrealistic union of the two. As the drama progresses, many other fine men, including Lee Yool, a cousin of the royal family, make their appearance. The story of the two characters, who keep quarreling about structural problems such as the rules of the royal household in the midst of the difficulties of being a prince and of the arranged marriage, will unfold in an interesting way. The show s fun lies in the episodes concerning the status gap that exists between a prince and an ordinary citizen. As more problems of status arise, the uniqueness of being a prince will be more greatly exposed, and doubling the fun of Princess Hours.

When the kings illness gets worse, Crown Prince Shin receives an order to get married his arranged marriage partner. Shin realizes that there have never been personal choices available in the life of a Crown Prince, though he’s only nineteen. Prince Shin proposes to his girlfriend Min Hyo-rin. Taking it as a joke, Hyo-rin shows her cute smile and takes off to practice for an international ballet competition. Shin doesnt hold onto her but just smiles faintly as she turns away and leaves….

Chae-kyeong has a dad who stays at home as a full time house-husband after his business failed and a mom who works as an insurance consultant.

Chae-kyeong's family, which was able to create happiness in the midst of difficult times, suddenly becomes in-laws with the royal household. To Chae-kyeongs parents everything seems much more like a dream, as they see that the arranged marriage grandfather always boasted of become realized. Chae-kyeong cries out loud, not willing to accept the fact that she has to get married at the age of nineteen, but Shin accepts the marriage, not caring about who becomes the queen.

To him, shes not a person he ll ever love anyways and she ll just live in the palace like a doll. Meanwhile, Hyo-rin engages herself only in her ballet practice abroad without knowing about her boyfriend s marriage. Yool, second – in – line to the crown and the son of Crown Prince Hyo – yeol, who abandoned his position 15 years ago and left with his wife for England, comes back to his motherland. Upon hearing this news, the king instinctively senses the danger of Crown Prince Shin losing the crown and orders Shin to be careful of Yool. Shin just laughs at the fight over the crown and ignores the king s words. Chae-kyeong enters the Oon-hyeon palace, the palace of the new queen - bride, to get educated as the future queen. Shin, who visits the detached palace, is stunned by the beautiful presence of Chae-kyeong in her ceremonial dress…

Royally Entertaining
To state the obvious, Palace (a.k.a. Princess Hours) wins on concept. This lighthearted drama re-imagines modern-day South Korea as a constitutional monarchy complete with a royal family, fancy palace, feuding queens, teenage princes, and a plentitude of archaic traditions. Just the novel premise alone warrants a watch, and the drama brilliantly follows through with its lofty concept in execution. From the dialogue and set to the wardrobe and even food, it is clear that significant time, research, and budget was put into making the drama convincingly royal in an updated, modern setting. These interesting royal details keep coming in casually throughout the drama, so there's a lot to see and absorb. Once the novel becomes normal though, what keeps the audience engaged to the drama are the characters and actors.

Palace feels a bit different from the get-go due to its rookie cast, youthful story, and colorful manga-like atmosphere. Starting off on the side of comedically juvenile and overboard, the drama's tone and design seem a lot more like the Nonstop series or Taiwanese idol dramas than the typical Korean mini series, with some scenes and details that flat out beg comparison to Hana Yori Dango (Meteor Garden). Once things settle down though, the story veers into familiar territory with tried-and-true genre tropes like love triangle, arranged marriage, and plotting mothers coming into play in the angsty, adorable development of the protagonists' unbelievably chaste romance. It's all been done before, but the typical romance storyline becomes fresh and innovative thanks to the not-done-before royal setting. There may be plenty of poor girl meets Prince Charming set-ups, but this time he really is a prince, and that brings a world of different problems and experiences to the story.

The drama paints the monarchy as the closeted face of reservation and tradition in a modern society, from the elaborate hanbok and traditional architecture of Gyeongbokgung to fancy wedding rituals and classical speech, all of which are very interesting to see on screen. The stylized tradition and palace politics contrast starkly with the less disciplined lives and personalities of the Crown Prince and Princess who must eventually inherit the palace and its many rules and regulations. The drama jumps tone, language, and pace completely as it navigates between the older and younger generations, and the effect is quite amusing, with Yoon Eun Hye's bumbling Crown Princess providing plenty of laughs and some compelling tears as she adjusts to the rigid palace environment. Palace even makes a point to discuss the role and value of an essentially outdated monarchy in a modern democratic nation, and the heavy baggage that comes with the label of royalty.

In the end, of course, the most important part is the romance, and Palace has that essential combination of photogenic protagonists in cute, yet heartwrenching relationships. With all the leads being newcomers to drama, the acting and romance play second banana to the concept and visuals in the earlier episodes. But as the drama progresses, the actors find their groove and chemistry and the characters begin to come alive - Yoon Eun Hye's brassy commoner-turned-Crown Princess Chae Gyung, Ju Ji Hoon's aloof and misunderstood Crown Prince Lee Shin, and Kim Jung Hoon's sad puppy Prince Yool all grew on me over the 24 episodes. Yoon Eun Hye is especially hilarious as the loud and tomboyish princess, and Ju Ji Hoon and Kim Jung Hoon certainly go easy on the eyes. For me, Palace also tips the scale with the pure unintentional comedy gold that is Ju Ji Hoon's wardrobe - pink polka dot sweaters, mint green shirts, deep-V tees, kerchiefs, wrap ties. You name it, he wears it.

Good Drama Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I finally received it after about 3 weeks wait but I'm not complaining since I didn't mind how long, atleast it arrived I'm happy :). The packaging was simple but protected extremely well.

The DVD was region code 3 which I thought wasn't going to work on my DVD player since I previously had some region code 3 DVDs and they were invalid region codes for my DVD player. I guess they were little cheap ones sold on the streets to be honest ^^.

The Drama is extremely good and fun to watch again. The chemistry between Shin and Chae-kyung is extremely good and I hope that they would have a chance to cast in the same Drama in the future ^^.

I really felt that this Drama was worth the purchase to keep for life rather than watching it on Youtube or Video before but now it's been licenced :p.

As a previous reviewer said, the subtitles may not be the best in the world but they are extremely good in my opinion. Better than my previous purchase, Full House's subtitles.
