Romantic Princess 公主小妹 has finished airing, with the last episode 13 shown on TV last sunday. Starring princess-idol Angela Chang 張韶涵, and currently Asia hottest boy-band Fahrenheit main lead Wu chun 吳尊 as its main male and female leads. Its no wonder that 公主小妹 has been the most highly anticipated idol drama this year, and the results have not let it down.

With an average episode rating of 3.40 nationwide in Taiwan, Romantic Princess has ranked first for all the 13 episodes, and beaten the likes Sweet Relationship 美味關係 featuring Vic Zhou and Patty Hou, which was aired at the same time.

Romantic Princess 公主小妹 previously was supposed to be 10 episodes, but due to overwhelming responses, the director decided to extend the show to 13 episodes, much to the delight of fans who felt that 10 episodes were way too short for such a good show. Here are some reasons why 公主小妹 is the idol drama for the year:

The script is fantasy, fairy-tale like

Don’t we all love to have a fantasy and fairy-tale like life? Well in Romantic Princess 公主小妹, they provide exactly that. Despite this fairy-tale story being a old-and-used formula for many shows and movies, it works doesn’t it? From a poor girl, one day the dream to be rich become true, and the girl turns into a princess.

Didn’t we all see this formula many times? Think Goong where a normal girl (Yoon Eun Hye) turns into the Crown Princess, and Full House where a normal girl (Song Hye Kyo) get together with a famous idol (Rain). It works, really.

The leads display perfect chemistry

This is usually one of the most important factors to determine whethet the show is a success or failure. In 公主小妹, although Angela Chang 張韶涵 and Wu chun 吳尊, and they admitted feeling strange at first, however they instantly warmed up to each other.

In the show, Angela character 小麥 and Wu chun character 南風瑾  disliked each other, but slowly hatred turns to love as their relationship starts to unravel. The couple when fighting against each other display humourous scenes, and when they are in love, its romance all over with a Big R.  

The Splendid, Prince and Princess costumes 

Since the show is about princess 公主, you can’t expect a princess to dress too sloppy can you? Well actually Angela did wear some commoners cloth at the start and somewhere middle of the show, but thats when she is not rich. 

Other than that, fanciful and Princess costumes, with Princess-like hairstyle and lifestyle, it is what every girls want. Even the 4 male characters are always out in nice nice clothes. Clothes does make or break a person.

The ever-present twist in the show

From the start where Angela turns into a princess from a poor girl, to the middle where she attends school and start to fall for Wu Chun, and when her grandpa finds another girl Gong Mo Li (Genie Zhuo) to pretend as the real grand daughter, to the end where grandpa fall deeply ill, there is suspense all over which keep us hook thinking what’s coming up next. Many tricks used by grandpa to make Angela admit that she is in love with Wu chun.

The happily-ever-after ending

Well this is a bit more tricky, the ending is not really what i expected, too abrupt, with so much things left to explain. Mayb its done on purpose for the continuation of Romantic princess 公主小妹2. Nevertheless, the ending is still a happy ending, with the male and female leads being together, and grandpa giving them their freedom to pursue their happiness and dreams. Kudos to the director.

Romantic princess 公主小妹 is the must-watch Taiwan idol drama for the year, if you have not watch it yet, please do so immediately. The next shows to watch will be Hebe’s new drama, Bull Fighting 鬥牛。要不要.
