Every time I start a old drama I do it following the path of an actress or actor that catches my attention. In this case, The Princess’ Man has two wonderful main leads, one from Cheongdam Dong Alice and the other from Nice Guy. Since I liked their performances so much I decided to give this one a try.
Synopsis of The Princess’ Man

Everything is going to change in a matter of minutes. Their families, confronted by power and ambition of the Great Prince Su Yang, will rapidly become enemies.
