For me, The Princess’ Man is one The Best Drama in 2011. The storyline is fresh and interesting because it based on original story with a little bit of fiction. Every episode was narrated and played so well that makes me excited to watch the next one. The tragic but beautiful love story between Kim Seung Yoo and Seryeong also makes me hooked to this drama. We can’t predict what will happen to them until the end. Kudos the the writer, director, cast and crew for this valuable piece. I would suggest to all KDrama fans to watch The Princess’ Man ^^
