Review – Cinderella and the Four Knights
I love Korean fairy tale dramas. Shining Inheritance, anyone? They always follow the same rules – basically some good-hearted young lady is brought in to “save” rich people from their own miserable natures. Unhappy rich people become happy rich people, and as a reward… the young lady gets married off to one of the rich boys and becomes rich too. Happy Ever After. This show didn’t even try to deny it… just look at the title!
Unlike most Korean drama fairy tales, however, this show differentiated itself by focusing on character development, almost exclusively as a plot device (through various missions our Cinderella is tasked to accomplish), so that our knights became real people instead of cliches. Cute and romantic, it’s a feel-good drama that’s perfect when you’re in the mood for some cheesy charm. Lots of laughs and heart. Highly recommended.
Overall Rating – 8.5/10. Prince Charming’s Castle Courtesy of Mass Studies Architecture.
