Guh, how come I’m just finding out now that Park Shi Hoo presented with Moon Chae Won at the Blue Dragon Film Awards two weeks ago? I literally gasped out loud and had to shield my eyes from the pretty. This reunion of The Princess’s Man OTP is both thrilling and incongruous, since the last I saw of them was in sageuk garb at the end of the drama. Those of you who haven’t seen TPM I won’t spoil it the ending here. I loved TPM but it wasn’t for the OTP, who was really down the list and probably the third reason I was hooked on the drama. My favorite story line was the father-daughter rebellion and dynamics between Princess Se Ryung and her daddy King Sejo, followed up with the so moving love story between Princess Kyung Hye and Jung Jong. I didn’t dislike the OTP, but their Romeo and Juliet love story was very standard romance fare and I felt the drama actually had more compelling other narratives that meant more to me. Nevertheless I found Park Shi Hoo and Moon Chae Won a ridiculously gorgeous couple with wonderful onscreen chemistry. It’s funny because Moon Chae Won and Moon Geun Young are very good friends in real life since they made Painter of the Wind together, and Moon Chae Won recently said in an interview that she’s planning to visit the set of Cheongdamdong Alice to support her good friend Moon Geun Young and former co-star Park Shi Hoo. She even expressed a willingness to make a cameo, and HOMG that would be all sorts of perfect and totally cute. Lately there have been lots of onscreen pairings that have created memorable couples leading to what is surely an explosion in real life shipping. I think Moon Geun Young is well on her way in matching Moon Chae Won’s chemistry with Park Shi Hoo. Dude is one lucky lucky actor.
You know, I don’t particularly love Moon Chae Won’s dress but she definitely wears it with confidence and star power. I feel like Park Shi Hoo raided his CA character Cha Seung Jo’s closet with the blue velvet suit jacket paired with a black shirt (didn’t momma tell you no black with blue?), but for some reason I still think he looks so handsome up there. Sigh, they are adorable together, yes?
