I Spy: “Harry Potter” in “Princess Hours”

I am unable to write a long entry today, so following “Scoring the Book”, I decided to start another feature here called “I Spy”, where I post screenshots of books that I have spotted in TV shows that I am watching.

"Harry Potter" in Korean drama "Princess Hours"

Various “Harry Potter” books in Korean drama “Princess Hours”

I will cheat today, though, because I haven’t seen this drama myself. Fellow Korean drama enthusiast Rainecaphriel shared this screenshot she took of various “Harry Potter” books seen in episode 7 of “Princess Hours” a.k.a. “Goong (ꢁ)”, a 2006 drama which starred one of my favorite ladies, Yoon Eun-hye. In this scene, Prince Yul (Kim Jeong-hoon) was reading the books. It’s interesting to note that these are the English Bloomsbury editions. πŸ™‚

I chose this as my first entry for this feature because it’s my friend Leia’s favorite K-drama (and the only one she would gush about, LOL), and it’s her birthday today! Happy Birthday, dude!

    Thanks dude! If I still remember it right, Prince Yul went to London along with his mother when his dad, who happens to be the heir to the throne, died. He had a very British education before moving back to South Korea. He’s probably the first guy I experienced the second-lead syndrome. πŸ˜›

      Ah, so maybe that’s why he was reading the British editions. Lea also mentioned that they had a bit of a discussion about JKR, although she was never mentioned by name. πŸ™‚
