A bonus post today! I had a little time on hand and needed a break from my work, so sharing my thoughts and opinion on Cinderella and Four Knights (신데렐라와 네 명의 기사).
Its been a while since I last watch any K-Drama purely because of the limited personal time on hand. I finally found a little time on hand and thanks to some very good reviews online, I started watching Cinderella and Four Knights (신데렐라와 네 명의 기사). A truly entertaining drama. I definitely enjoyed the drama and managed to finished the entire 16 episodes within 3 days.
Starring Park So Dam as Eun Ha Won and Jung Il Woo as Kang Ji Woon, Cinderella and Four Knights (신데렐라와 네 명의 기사) is a story of a bright student who dreams of becoming teacher. Unhappy at home, she was mistreated by her step-mother and step-sister while her father is just ignoring her.
Ha Won (starring Park So Dam), at the Anniversary of her mother’s death, while visiting her, found out that her mother’s ashes was removed because of unpaid bills. To make matters worst, she was chased out of her own house just after her father drop a bombshell on her: she is actually not his real daughter but born from a scandal that her mother had with another guy.
Spoiled cousins with different personalities staying together in a huge yet cold mansion called Sky House. Kang Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo) – a tough guy whom grew up under the name of Han Ji Woon. He was brought back into the Kang family and got his name change against his wishes.
Kang Hyun Min (starring Ahn Jae Hyeon) is the heir to the company whom is also a playboy. After meeting Eun Ha Won, he ‘hired’ her to be his fiancee for 3 hours to attend his Grandfather’s 5th Wedding Ceremony with the plan to upstage his grandfather’s wedding ceremony with the surprise appearance of a fiancee, Eun Ha Won.
Kang Seo Woo (starring Lee Jung Shin) is a sweet musician whom eventually started falling for Eun Ha Won.
Hye Ji (starring Son Na Eun) grew up together with Hyun Min. A love triangle indeed with Ji Woon liking her while her heart is with Hyun Min. Fate as it is, Hyun Min avoided her despite knowing his heart because of an incident causing the death of Hye Ji’s brother whom is also a good friend of Hyun Min. Would both Hyun Min and Hye Ji get back together?
Grandfather Kang (starring Kim Yong Geon) is a control freak whom hires Ha Won after witnessing her no-nonsense attitude towards Hyun Min when he brought her to the wedding. So he decided to hire her as a live-in butler at Sky House with the hopes that she is able bring all his grandsons together as a family. And to change their way of living for the better.
Rounding out the ‘chaebol’ lifestyle of Sky House, Lee Yoon Sung (starring Choi Min Sung) is the boys handsome bodyguard and butler. He took great care of Ha Won when she moved into the mansion. He knew about her family issues and protected her from her ‘blood-sucking’ and irritating step-mother and step-sister.
What I like and enjoyed while watching Cinderella and Four Knights (신데렐라와 네 명의 기사) is how light and fun it was. Entertaining with many funny moments although can’t deny that there were also frustrating and sad moments. Especially the part where Ji Hoon let Ha Won go in episode 16 when he woke up from his coma. His heart broke when he had to do it, but he wants her happiness more than anything else. Am so glad that Grandfather Kang eventually realized that it is not the best choice to force them apart, hence agreed to let them get back together.
My favorite Knights among the four of them…. Definitely the cool, charming, caring and sweet Lee Yoon Sung (Choi Min Sung).
Oh… Did I mention about the beautiful OST from Cinderella and Four Knights (신데렐라와 네 명의 기사)? My top 3 selection of the OST from this drama would be as below:

So, if you need a break and looking for something light and entertaining, Cinderella and Four Knights (신데렐라와 네 명의 기사) is indeed the drama to watch. After all, what could go wrong when it is director Kwon Hyuk Chan, the genius whose always-expanding list of blockbusters includes A Gentleman’s Dignity, Lie to Me, and Secret Garden whom directed this drama.
