Positives:
(1.) Do not let the the beginning minutes of superficiality and extravagant glamness discourage you as it actually helps set the character of one of the film's main protagonists.
(2.) South Korean studios are fast joining their Indian, Japanese and Chinese counterparts in producing quality movies. As an aside, it's interesting to see the distinctive core personalities of each of these cultures revealed both in how they tell their stories and in what their cultures deem to be significant to showcase on film.
(3.) The actor's thought processes and dialogue showed intelligence unlike many Hollywood films where the actor's actions/decisions often make little common sense and are not well thought out. Also, surprising was that the acting by all participants was carried off with great nuanced and emotional skill.
(4.) The story itself showed intelligent complexity with layers of intrigue and suspense that reveal themselves in a fluid and timely fashion as the movie progressed thus kudos to the director and writers. The background research for the script was thoughtful and surprisingly accurate; in particular for the legal and investigative scenes.
(5.) The cinematography was also surprisingly well done with unusual camera angles to help convey more about the story e.g. the angles to show the holding of hands conveyed more emotion than words or more than the customary standard camera angle.

Negative:
Jenny's (Jeni) story should have been more complete; seemed scrambled and abruptly tossed in order to fill storyline holes. We're left hanging on what potentially could have been the most interesting character story.

Prosecutor Princess, was a delightfun light-hearted comedy about a rich, ditzy/fashion crazed woman who is forced by her rich father to become a prosecutor or face getting her credit cards canceled. Much like the American movie Legally Blonde the main character may come across as ditzy and dumb but actually has a brilliant mind when she actually decides to use it.

This is not a deep and thought provoking movie but it does have a splash of political conspiracys, corporate corruption, murder and revenge themes in addition to the usual romance elements.

What is interesting for Western audiences is the brief views into the Korean Judicial system. Being a Korean Prosecutor is very different from the American versions. I won't say more about it, you need to watch it for yourself.

I started watching this and I'm not fond of dingy female protagonists so it kind of lagged for the first couple episodes, but once she showed how smart she is, it became extremely engrossing and I finished this series rapidly. It's now one of my top favorites for several reasons: 1. So romantic!!! Great background music and so poignant. 2. Corruption and nepotism are fascinating in this. 3. Handsome leading guy. 4. Great happy ending. Don't miss out on this - get it now! It's great!

Be careful, you may become hooked on Korean romantic comedies after watching this series. I certainly did. Production values excellent. All characters likable. Romantic suspense. Lots of comic relief. I think Korean television dramas---and this one in particular---are a cut above anything we are accustomed to seeing. If you like the heroine, she later starred in Doctor Champ, a judo saga in which she plays the pretty Olympic Sports doctor.

goes with this series. The girl starts out so bizarre and crazy, but life changes her and makes her better. There is a little bit of everything here. Love, hate, romance, pain, loss, money, loss of money, and so on. This series has a wonderful loving mother and a nasty father. I enjoyed the entire cast. It is entertaining and certainly has many ups and downs.

This was a really good drama. Once you get past the first few episodes that set up the characters it starts to get even better thank you think it would be. It made me yell at the TV! LOL! To me that's a great indicator that it was a good series because it made me get emotionally invested in the characters and their storylines.

I get worried sometimes near the end of many Asian dramas and animae because they will kill off main characters at the drop of a hat, so you never know what will happen until the end credits are rolling. This is a funny and serious drama with a complicated plot line that you discover along the way. I really liked the two main lead actors. Excellent acting and great chemistry. One of the bosses is in the series TEN and I really enjoy the characters he plays.

Another thing about Asian shows is the clothing. Both the women and the men wear very interesting styles. The lead male had some runway worthy outfits for a lawyer. He doesn't wear just suits, but even then, they are a bit flashy. The lead female of course had some extremely cute clothes, but the shoes were awesome. Especially the pair named "Grace". They could have been a character all by themselves!

P.S. I loved they way she parked her car at the office everyday! I approve.

Bought for my wife, it is one of the best I have come across. The English subtitles are very well done. It was a very well prepared product. I hope there will be more of this caliber.

Don't be put off by the title - this is a wonderful romantic story with a fantastic musical score. The 2 stars have great chemistry together. Watching the development of of Hye Ri as a character is delightful. Kim So Yeon is excellent in the staring role. I wish more had been done to develop the romance between the secondary characters, because that would have added some nice weight to the story. This is my only real criticism. You won't regret getting this set if you love romantic KDramas. Video & audio quality are excellent, as is the packaging. Enjoy!!
