Let the battle for koreanovela supremacy begin between GMA’s Jumong and ABS-CBN’s Princess Hours.
ABS-CBN offers their viewers PRINCESS HOURS – the breakthrough in Korean love story/drama-comedy.
With elaborate costumes and historical locations, the ‘fairy tale’ unfolds with Gian, the crown prince of Korea, whose world unexpectedly collides with commoner, Janelle. Because of the emperor’s sickly state, the royalty hustles into finding the prince a bride, bringing out the long kept secret of an arranged marriage between the grandchildren of the former emperor and his best friend, who turns out to be Janelle’s grandfather. When Gian’s girlfriend, ballerina Monique rejects his marriage proposal, he accepts Janelle as his wife, to teach the royal family a lesson. Things get a bit more complicated though with the return of Gian’s cousin, former crown prince of Korea, Troy and his mother, to the country. With Gian’s father succeeding the throne after his older brother’s death, rules of the nobility sent Troy and his mom to exile in London. Upon his return, not only does he want his birthright back but his cousin’s bride as well.
