Drama review: The King 2 Hearts

I love this promotion poster! This is the 3rd drama I finished in this 3 weeks. A new accomplishment for me. Compared to Rooftop Prince and Queen In Hyun's Man, this one is not better than them. I dont think they got the chemistry like what those leads had, maybe because their ages are too far different. Lee Seung Gi who acted as Prince Lee Jae Ha is only 25 yet Ha Ji Won acted as Kim Hang Ah is 34 now. I dont mind if they displayed noona-dongsaeng relationship but this is just less chemistry. The main point in this drama is about north and south korea relationship. I like how they maintained a nice and peaceful relationship. Besides, the second lead couple is so cute. Eun Shi Kyung (Jo Jung Seok) and Princess Lee Jae Shin (Lee Yoon Ji) have contrast personalities. She is so lively and playful while Eun Shi Kyung is a boring person and strict to rules. At the end, there is something that pissed me off in this drama. We also got King Lee Jae Kang and John Mayer as the other important roles here. Joh Mayer as the villain while King Jae Kang is a kindhearted king who is willing to do everything to protect his family and country. I prefer to watch Rooftop prince or Queen In Hyun's Man first and then follow up with this drama because I hate John Mayer that much. He's not the ordinary villain we get to see in dramas but he is crazy psycho man who will do everything to get what he wants.

Lee Jae Ha, the supposed 2nd Prince of South Korea marries the thirty-something army instructor, Kim Hang Ah who is also the daughter of an influential family from the north korea through an arranged marriage after both of them were being caught in a "special situation". The once carefree and frank, Lee Jae Ha began to walk his road of revenge as the king after his older brother was killed in a bombing attack during his engagement. And as both of Jae Ha and Hang Ah slowly falls in love with each other despite of clashing and fighting at first, they finds themselves once again at the mercy of the political factors which had brought them together at first but now wants them to be apart.
