KBS Wed-Thurs Rom-com Dali and the Cocky Prince Delivers Surprisingly Sincere and Funny Premiere Episode with Ratings of 4.4%

This Wed-Thurs saw the return of the KBS time slot after the network took a summer hiatus post Sell Your Haunted House. This fall the time slot will be filled with the shenanigans of Dali and the Cocky Prince (Dalri and Gamjatang), which combines a plethora of things I love – European paintings, opposites attract OTP, and gamjatang (pork bone potato soup). Seriously, I love those three things. That doesn’t meant the drama would be good or that I would love it but lo and behold, I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode. I LOL’d multiple times, the most being with male lead Kim Min Jae as gamjatang empire heir Jin Moo Hak encountered his disapproving dad and they had a revolving door showdown. Park Kyu Young as refined and art loving Kim Dal Ri is so warm, lovely, funny, and her English is exquisite not perfect but so good it doesn’t take one out of her dialogue during the art scenes. The two leads also have immediate chemistry, the drama storyline mandates it with their mistaken identity meet cute but it’s palpable in the air between then and the ending scene for the episode even has him naked falling on top of her in her underwear. Like, could this drama move even faster, and really do I even care? It was such a fun first episode I just adored it for all the things that I had no expectation for and unexpectedly delivered.

  2. LOVED IT! I laughed out loud several times too but my personal favorite had to be the scene where he described the pig painting in excruciating and disgusting detail while she translated. I almost choked I laughed so hard! I always LOVE Kim Min Jae but I wasn’t sure about Park Kyu Young. However, she is perfectly cast for this role and even her weird hair is cute when coupled with her character. I hope that we don’t get too bogged down in whatever mystery is going on with her father because I would happily watch a whole show of these two being cute and funny!

  4. Wow, this sounds awesome thanks for the write up, can’t wait to watch it. I’m really glad we are getting good kdrama rom-coms now, it’s good to have a watchable variety of shows to choose from.

  5. I was going to wait but decided to check out episode 1 after reading about it. Episode 1 are usually boring as all heck.

    Not this, I laughed more in episode 1 than in more 16 episode dramas combined. The comic timing and chemistry between those 2 are so good. KMJ can really deliver and she is just so believable when swears. She is adorable.

  6. I like this so far. Upbeat, fast-paced and good chemistry between the leads. You’re right, PKY’s English is good, it’s not distracting to the flow/scene. Not to say that every K-ent actor/actress should speak English well, but some dramas insert a scene where the characters are supposed to be proficient in English to impress but it just becomes distracting. It’s a plus point for PKY that she carried those scenes well.
