The Reasons Why You Should Watch My Sassy Girl!
- A remake of the movie My Sassy Girl from 2001!
The title of this drama is definitely familiar to the ear. This drama is a remake of the film My Sassy Girl from 2001, which was very successful. Although it is an adaptation, the background of time and place are made differently. It’s time to take a historical setting, in the Joseon Dynasty era. So it must be very different.
- Joo Won’s last drama before military service!
For Joo Won fans, you really must watch this drama. Aside from the exciting story and Joo Won’s acting, this drama is Joo Won’s last drama before going to the military. The drama itself finished filming on March 7th, 2017, which is Joo Won’s last appearance before leaving for military service on May 16th, 2017.
- It has an exciting and hilarious story!
The story offered by this drama is fresh and hilarious. If we usually watch the story of the royal princess in the Joseon era who are all very graceful and polite, it’s really different here. Princess Hye-myung comes with a funny and eccentric disposition. A daughter who is rude and likes to say whatever she wants. The funny thing was the confusion Gyun-woo had to face because he fell in love with Hye-myung. Surely we are also treated to many funny scenes in each episode.
