Again... Late, but FROG PRINCE!!!!

a.k.a. Prince Who Turn Into A Frog...
This time, it's Taiwanese! XD
This review was made about 8 months ago... XD


Prince Who Turns Into A Frog, simply known as Frog Prince, is the #1 mostly highly rated show in Korea, with a highest peak of 69.3%, and I'm not surprised why. This series is about a poor schemer named Ye Tian Yu. She dreams of marrying a handsome, rich prince in order to give her family a better life. In a series of events, Tian Yu "accidentally" runs Shan Jun Hao, a rich and handsome but ruthless and spoiled CEO to a hotel chain, over. Now with amnesia, Jun Hao is given a name: Dang Ou, is said by Tian Yu that he is his illegal cousin, and lives with Tian Yu and her family. Eventually, love starts to blossom between the two. And just when they were falling for each other, Jun Hao's fiancee Yun Xi, and the sweet guy who likes her, Zi Quan,comes back to get Jun Hao back. And after an accident, Jun Hao' memory as Dango erases and he is back as his old coldhearted self. Tian Yu tries to give him his memory of Dang Ou back, but he just thinks she is lying. Meanwhile, Zi Quan, brokenhearted since Jun Hao is back with Yun Xi, gets close to Tian Yu as he believes her words. The two agreed to fight for their love, but if the fail, they try dating each other. Meanwhile, Jun Hao, seeing the two close, gets pretty confused for his feelings for Tian Yu and starts to get his memory back. See what happens next in this charming modern Taiwanese remake of the classic fairytale.

What I Think:

This is the first Taiwanese series I've ever watched in Taiwanese (most of Tdramas I've watched were dubbed). I understood it through English subtitles. As I may have already typed, this is the highest rated show in Taiwan (as of now). Anyways, I think this drama is outstanding. The cast is great, and the OST, which contains songs from 183 Club and 7 Flowers, the4 main characters' groups, is good, too. I love the scenes whereDang Ou/Jun hao is fighting for Tian Yu, but what I hate about this is there is too much drama sometime, like when Yun Xi gets paranoid after her divorce with Jun Hao, I mean I know you love him, but isn't it a bit too much to get so crazy about it that you need to see a doctor? But overall, I think this is a fantastic show, and I do recommend it.
