This drama is set in modern day where South Korea is governed by a constitutional monarchy. Lee Jae Ha is a handsome and materialistic crown prince that doesn’t care about politics.his life turns upside down when his brother forces him to join a hybrid team consisting of soldiers from north and south Korea. Kim Hang Ah is a tough special forces agent who doesn’t have any experience in love or dating though she wishes to get married and live peacfuly. when her comrade convinces her of joining the north-south team , she meets the cocky prince and they immediately start fighting but things change when they know they are arranged to be married.
As soon as the story was revealed, I knew it would be quite interesting, because of this Price of Korea concept with the North-South relation. Plus, Ha Ji Won and Lee Seungi Gi were leading. As soon as I saw the drama, I just fell in love. It’s a very complicated story with a lot of characters and twisted relationship. However, it was not difficult to understand… apart from the beginning, during their childhood time… that was a bit confusing…
Lee Jae Ha, the delinquent and charimatic prince starts as a little guy who wants to have noting to do with royalty. However, his brother wants him to show his utility to the country and he participates in a special team forces with will participate in a international military game. He meets agent Kim Hang Ah who is a North Korean girl and they hate each other at first sight. However, they will start getting closer and closer with each other and play the game with their teammates. This first part was amazing since I loved how the comrades became friends even with their opposite ideology. The actual game was a lot of fun and I never thought I could like watching people fight that much.
During the second part, you see more of the royal issues. The story get a lot more serious and we start seeing this John Mayer, who is very freaky… till the end. The plot gets very dramatic [spoiler] as the brother passes away and Jae Ha becames king [/spoiler] The relationship became Jae Ha and Hang Ah becomes stronger and we get to see their everyday life together. The princess also falls in love with one of Jae Ha’s close friend. Meanwhile, the King’s personal secretary is trying to hide his wrongdoings. Anyways, all those leads to the final part. Everybody seems to be seeking for revenge, and there is hate everywhere… However, the story stays very interesting. At the ending, I teared a bit and was disappointed because I had hoped a different ending. However, it was not because it was bad, in fact, it was A-Ma-Zing.
