YesAsia Editorial Description

Bae Du Na (The Host, Someday) returns as a quirky, fearless single mother in the romantic comedy Country Princess (a.k.a. The Funny Wild Girl). Bae's popularity and recognition as one of Korea's top young actresses comes from her effervescent, unpretentious charm and feisty attitude - all reflected in her works. Playing a sassy mother for the second time after her 2002 film Saving My Hubby, Bae pairs up with rocker-turned-actor Shin Sung Woo (Super Rookie Ranger, Tropical Night in December) in the 2003 MBC drama Country Princess. Shin plays a cold-blooded unflinching businessman bearing a painful past. But as the plot thickens, the handsome and composed actor undergoes a drastic transformation, taking part in some of the best belly-clinching, slapstick comedy moments in the drama. In addition, fans of Kang Dong Won (M, Magic) will be delighted as the heartthrob makes his acting debut playing Bae's first love and the one who holds the key to the secret revealed towards the drama's ending.

Eun Hee (Bae Du Na) never knew a mother's love growing up as her mother only showed affection to her sister Geum Hee (Kim Yoo Mi, Romance). Nevertheless, basking in her father's love, Eun Hee grows up to be a spunky go-getter. But on one fatal night, a fire kills her father, devastating the whole family. Soon after a tycoon appears in search of his long-lost granddaughter and to everyone's amazement, the mother points to Geum Hee. Dumbfounded but ecstatic that she is after all her mother's real daughter, Eun Hee bids farewell to Geum Hee. Five years later, Eun Hee is struggling to make ends meet for her one-year-old son, twin siblings, and ailing mother. Feeling overwhelmed, she proposes a business plan to In Woo (Shin Sung Woo) whom she meets at a factory quarter. Just then, her mother decides to spill the truth about her identity...

    미니시리즈 <위풍당당 그녀>는 ‘은희’라는 한 여성의 작지만 아름다운 성공스토리를 담은 드라마이다. 영화 <천국의 아이들>의 주인공 소년 ‘알리’가 오직 여동생의 새 운동화를 얻기 위해 제 운동화가 닳아터질 때까지 뛰고 또 뛰는 것처럼, '은희'도 간암에 걸린 엄마를 살리기 위해 달리고 또 달린다. 하지만 가난한 시골출신에 중졸의 학력, 싸움 빼고는 뭐 하나 잘 하는 게 없는, 게다가 빽빽 울어대는 갓난쟁이 아들까지 등에 업은, 미혼모 ‘은희’에게 세상은 온통 자갈에 가시밭길이다. 돌덩이에 채여 넘어지고 가시에 찔리고, 어떤 땐 자신의 어린 아이까지 넘어지고 찔려 여린 살에 생채기가 생겨도‘은희’는 달리기를 멈출 수가 없다. 죽어가는 엄마를 살려내야 하므로.

    말하자면 미니시리즈 <위풍당당 그녀>는 돈 없고 빽 없고 가방끈마저 짧은 시골 출신의 날라리 미혼모 ‘은희’가 펼치는 세상(가난)과의 싸움이고, 운명(뒤바뀐 운명)과의 분투기며, 생초보 철없는 엄마의 처절한 육아일기이며, 그녀의 눈물나는 가족사랑에 관한 드라마이다.

    은희에게 엄마는 세상에서 가장 가깝고도 먼 존재다. 뭐라고 딱 잘라 말할 순 없지만 이상하게도 엄마에게선 늘 벽 같은 게 느껴진다. 그녀의 아버진 누누이 엄마의 성격 탓이라고 했지만 쌍둥이언니 금희한테 대하는 걸 보면 그건 성격이 아니라 애정도의 문제였다. 자라면서 은희는 늘 엄마의 사랑이 고팠다. 언제나 언니 금희한테로만 향하고 있는 엄마의 시선. 어쩌면 그녀가 늘 문제를 일으키고 사고를 친 건 언니로부터 엄마의 관심을 빼앗아 오고 싶은 욕구 때문이었는지도 모른다. 하지만 엄마와는 갈수록 사이가 나빠졌고 이젠 눈만 마주쳐도 으르렁거리는 사이가 돼 버렸다. 그리고 아버지의 죽음...

    딸기농사를 짓던 비닐하우스에 불이 났다. 아니 결과적으론 은희가 불을 낸 셈이었다. 집안형편 때문에 대학진학이 좌절돼 방황하던 금희를 위로해주기 위해 은희는 부모님 몰래 비닐하우스에서 술 파티를 벌였는데, 자매가 술에 취해 잠이 든 새 그만 비닐하우스에 불이 난 것이다. 딸을 구하기 위해 불길 속으로 뛰어든 아버지는 가까스로 두 딸을 살려낼 수 있었지만 당신 몸까진 화염으로부터 구하지 못했다.

    5년 후... 엄마가 간암이란다. 그것도 말기로 접어든 상태라 수술은 해보겠지만 마음의 준비를 하는 게 좋겠다고 병원에선 사실상 사형선고를 내렸다. 평생을 가난에 끌려다니며 진탕 고생만 한 그녀의 엄마다. 무슨 수를 써서든 엄마를 살려내고야 말겠다고 결심하는 은희. 문제는 돈이었다. 빠른 시간 안에 많은 돈을 벌어야만 했다. 그러나 월급도 안나오는 망한 공장의 경리사원인 은희에게 은행은 단돈 십만원도 빌려주지 않는다. 마침내 그녀의 전 재산인 월세집 보증금을 빼서 엄마의 병원비를 마련하고 1살짜리 아들과 9살난 쌍둥이 동생들을 데리고 인우가 기거하는 공장숙소로 쳐들어가 그에게 떼로 기생하기에 이른다. 그리고 남은 보증금으로 말도 안되게도 동업을 하자며 인우와 쇼부를 보는 은희. 이제 멈춰져 있던 인우의 기계가 은희의 손에 의해 돌아가고, 은희는 죽어가는 엄마를 살리기 위해 거리의 분식집으로 대형 할인마트들로 뛰어다닌다. 오직 엄마를 살리겠다는 일념 하나로 맨땅에 헤딩을 하며 손발이 부르트도록 뛰어다니는 은희.
    한데...그런데... 엄마가 고백을 한다. 언니 금희의 장래를 위해 은희의 인생을 훔쳤다고! 사실은 그녀가 아니라 금희가 엄마의 친딸이며 은희가 태성그룹의 손녀딸이라고!

    funny wild girl Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    This movie is a geat movie it is an emotional rollercoaster ride movie. It has you crying throughout the movie. I love Eun Hee because she struggle to provide for her family and still finds time to be happy no matter what her mother through at her. I hated the mother and sister for what they have done to Eun Hee but in the end the mother fest up to her responsibility. The business man was cold at first but he end up making the right decision just love that guy. I've been looking and searching for this movie as I know it on azn as Funny Wild Girl but could not find it until later as country princess that was the best thing that they have done because I finally found my movie and I can't wait to buy it is a must see and a must have movie to have in your library and share with your family

    A Charming Funny Wild Girl Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    What's a girl to do when she has to choose between the man she loves (who's company is failing) and the rich doctor who loves her? And what's she supposed to do when her "evil step-sister" of sorts takes her only known family member away? This comedic drama has a typical Cinderella-like setup. It's very original, however! I watched this a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it (especially because of Kang Dong Won...) It seemed a bit "draggy" towards the end, but it was still a really good drama. It's definitely worth buying!

    I'm so excited! Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
    I watched this drama about two years ago on the Interntional Channel (now AZN). I always thought it was titled Funny Wild Girl, since that is what the channel referred to it as. Its a very good drama, and humorous as well. The ending is great! I can't wait to buy it! :]
