K-movie Feels:
  • The Princess and the Matchmaker is fun to watch especially if you enjoy a good and a cute romance with a happily ever after.
  • It’s not your usual historical drama; it’s simple, very cheerful and heartwarming film.
  • Not many romantic scenes, but enough to keep you happy.
  • It’s the perfect romantic comedy setup full of mistaken identity and a hilarious mix-up.
  • Lee Seung Gi and his smile is good enough for me to enjoy this movie.
  • This isn’t a Lee Seung-gi showstopper role in terms of grand displays of acting but his charming performance and the film’s beautiful visuals make it a perfect choice for a relaxing movie night.
  • If you want to watch a historical drama with many funny moments and no tragedy then this is a good watch.
