Can you believe it's been 10 years since My Princess first aired?! (10 years, 9 months, 17 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did My Princess end?
When My Princess came to an end after 1 year in February 2011, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Lee Seol (Kim Tae-hee), Oh Yoon-joo (Park Ye-jin), Nam Jung-woo (Ryu Soo-young) and Park Hae-young (Song Seung-heon). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a My Princess reunion disappoint people?
My Princess aired from 2011-2011 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Park said she's not sure if My Princess would work today. “I don't want to see old Oh Yoon-joo,” she told a journalist (Park turned 40 in April). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for a My Princess movie?
In a recent interview, Kim Tae-hee said she can't imagine a My Princess reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Song Seung-heon has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a My Princess movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a My Princess film, Ryu Soo-young stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a My Princess reboot?
Recasting My Princess for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a My Princess reunion, a My Princess movie, or a My Princess reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
