I wasn’t thrilled with the first stills from this drama but these latest ones are making me more enthusiastic!
WHO am I kidding? I can’t waittttt!!!! Prince Hyukie looks delicious!
Plot? What plot? Ah you guys whatch for the… Ok ,ok, here is the plot according to asianwiki:
Synopsis – Wang So (Jang Hyuk) is the Prince of Goryeo. He had a lonely childhood, due to his cursed fate. As he grew up, he realized his talent to become a King. Wang So looks bright, but he has a wounded mind. One day, he meets Shin Yool (Oh Yeon-Seo), who is the Last Princess of Balhae. She was born with the fate of becoming the light for another country. Because of her fate, she faces death. Through a one night marriage, Wang So and Shin Yool become connected and grow to love each other.

So I have the usual fears: Will this be well written? It is based on a romance web-novel “Bitnageona Michigeona” by Hyun Go-Woon which was a success. Based on the web-novel we shouldn’t expect it to be historically accurate or focused on much more than romance. Definitely not a “serious” sageuk so my hope is that it will be fun and have heart. We are expecting to park the brain for this one but who knows? It might surprise us (like FTLY did by having much more depth than I would’ve expected from a rom com)
Another worry is, will Hyuk have chemistry with his leading lady played by Oh Yeon Seo (Jang Bo Ri is here)? I already like how they look together so I’m feeling hopeful, but I haven’t seen her in anything so she is definitely a mystery that I can’t wait to unveil (ironically most of the stills show her wearing a veil :p). I’m excited but scared! You know the feeling?
Shine or Go Crazy will air on Mondays and Tuesdays on MBC approximately in mid January after Pride and Prejudice
