A long official title for the comeback drama of Song Joong-Ki, also known as Nice Guy or Innocent Man. Finally…seeing him in a drama is like a dream come true for me. But this one isn’t full of fluff or cuteness like a rom-com drama; Nice Guy is a pure melodrama, centered around a man who’s out for a revenge after his life was destroyed by his ex-girlfriend. Some might have doubts whether Joong-Ki can pull off a cold, evil role like this…but if you’ve seen him in Tree with Deep Roots, you’ll know it’s possible for him to get into the character as a cold playboy Kang Maru.
The last episode’s credit rolled out, and without me myself realizing it, I’m already sobbing between tears, watching each and every character’s smiles flashed in front of my eyes. I have never thought that I would become so attached with this sageuk, moreover I aimed to watch it until the end in the shortest time possible. Without any warning, it entered my heart, little by little, and that had me crying at the sight of any touching moments. That’s what I experienced while I watched a drama with heart, called The Princess’ Man.
Words travelled, and the love people had for this show was and still immense. I am fortunate to be able to indulge into it, though my journey started quite late than others. The effects are the same to me as what other people experienced. To me, this sageuk keeps lingering in my mind, whether when I’m asleep or awake.
Treat this not as a review, but as an afterthought of a viewer about her favourite show. Then, should there be anyone who hasn’t seen this, stay away, for this might contain spoilers.
