The story about Eun Ha Won, a bright but lonely girl abused by her stepmother and stepsister who, in order to pursue her dream, left home and ends up living in a big mansion together with three Kang cousins and their bodyguard.

My Point of View:

4895_CinderellaAndFourKnights_Nowplay_Small

This 16-episode drama is about a girl named Eun Ha won who were asked to live in the Sky House with the handsome Kang cousins by their grandfather. Each of them has their own grudge towards each other making it hard for them to stay in one roof. But everything changed as Ha Won goes on with her missions given by the Grandfather. She can stay in the house as long as she want but in one condition, she shouldn’t date anyone from the cousins.

Cinderella and the Four Knights is fun and easy to watch because of its light story plot. Seeing Ha Won as a modern Cinderella, who lives together with these handsome guys was already fun. It was on episode 3 on which the story begins. The plot is direct to the point, no heavy feelings nor big problems just purely light atmosphere even between with the characters. It deals with family, friendship and love. Behind its fun, you will see people who are looking for happiness and contentment in life.

Unlike other dramas, this story has a love square. They are not selfless to the point that they are the one who gives advice to each other’s feelings.

Though it was quite short, the ending justifies the means and I can’t ask for more.

THE CHARACTERS/CASTS:
Characters are perfectly chosen. Everyone is very suitable to the character they need to portray. They have their own reasons for you to love them and to be honest, seeing these handsome guys in one screen is already a hit!

  • Park So-Dam as Eun Ha-wonCinderella8 a sweet, charming, lovable and enthusiast girl who brought up the color in the story. She perfectly portrays her role and her smile brings up the light in every problems in the story. She has strong personal set of morals and has a bright personality. Also, she ha
    s this chemistry in all the guys she partnered with in the story. She acted comfortably in front of the camera and it seems that they are really close with each other.  I admire how easily she changed her mood in the story effortlessly.
  • Jung Il-Woo as Kang Ji-woon  “a total thug” – ff89e750de4b0b7a23e3db4f559838eba unique, bold, childish and very confident about himself is what I define him. Wild and rebellious but he is sensitive, soft and lonely inside. This is quite different from Il-woo’s previous roles and I absolutely love him more. He exceed my expectation and I can’t ask for more. From the way he move up to the way he talks, he’s totally a package. I’ve watched him on 49 Days which made me calls him, Scheduler. 

 

  • Ahn Jae-hyun as Kang Hyun-min Cinderella9“a total player”  the cocky playboy and the reason why Ha Won got involved in the family. Though he’s a playboy, he is protecting his first love from a distance. He is quite stiff at the first glance but when I see him with Ha-won, he has this soft and caring side. I even thought at first that she has some special feelings to wards Ha-won.

 

 

 

  • Lee Jung-Shin as Kang Seo-woo “a good for nothing” Cinderella11 a famous singer who has a funny and approachable attitude who is affectionate towards Ha-won. He was the one who get closer first to Ha-won and eventually becomes his first love. He choose to keep it to himself and just release it through writing some songs and supporting her with everything she do.

 

 

 

 

  • Cinderella12Choi Min as Lee Yoon-sung — he is the secretary of the Kang’s grandfather. However, he has this kind of attitude that makes everyone follow him. He is quite serious, an emotionless face and you will see him smile seldom. He had a hard time getting loose and enjoy life until Ha-won helped him to bring out the other side of him. I salute his loyalty to the Kang family even sacrificing his own sake for them. Though, I never thought that he will be the fourth knight.

 

 

To sum it all, Ha-won is the modern Cinderella who doesn’t need to leave her shoe to be considered as one. Living with the handsome Kang Cousins were already enough. I totally admire the lightness of the story and if you really need some refreshment form all the K-drama era, I highly recommend this one. No heavy scenes, just purely romance and comedy.

  1. This one has been on my list for sometime now. I thought it would lean more towards melodrama so im surprised to hear its more light then that. I’ll definitely have to put it higher on my list then. 😀
