review Cinderella and the Four Knights Korean Drama
Cinderella and the Four Knights is about a young woman (Park So Dam) who is given the opportunity to live at the mansion of a rich chaebol and make some money to go to college. And if that isn’t lucky enough, the chaebol’s three handsome grandsons (Jung Il Woo, Ahn Jae Hyun, & Lee Jung Shin) also live there as well a handsome bodyguard (Choi Min) who is to look after her.
Cinderella and the Four Knights was such a fun and easy watch. On the surface, it’s more of a fluff piece where we just get to enjoy watching the poor Cinderella girl get to live in a fancy house and draw the affections of multiple handsome guys. And all of that was definitely fun!
But it’s also a story of people finding happiness by coming to terms with who they are and reconciling past hurts in order to finally become a family. One girl is tasked with helping this fractured family come together. And while she helps them, she also goes on her own journey.
Park So Dam was fantastic as our leading lady Eun Ha Won. She is the absolute perfect mixture of sweet, cheerful, and strong. She takes no grief from any of the guys and can completely hold her own in any situation.
And Park So Dam is absolutely beautiful and adorable in this role. Her smile just completely lights up every scene, and I always can’t help but smile right along with her.
I also give a lot of credit to Park So Dam for having this effortless chemistry with all of the guys. She just comes off so natural and comfortable with each guy that it really helped bring out the best in each of them.
Jung Il Woo was very solid in the role of Kang Ji Woon. This role is very different from other roles I have seen him in. His characters are frequently loud, unique, and overly confident. Whereas Ji Woon is really a very normal character.
He’s that quiet, tortured, rebel who really needs some happiness in life. It took a while for him to really begin opening up, but it was great to see. I really enjoyed Jung Il Woo in this, and it’s definitely my favorite character of his.
We have Ahn Jae Hyun in the second lead role of Kang Hyun Min. He’s the cocky playboy of the group, and he’s the one who gets Ha Won involved with his family. I always find Ahn Jae Hyun a bit stiff and awkward, but I think his interactions with Park So Dam helped make him pleasant enough to watch since he got to spend a lot of time with her in the beginning.
Lee Jung Shin plays Kang Seo Woo. He’s the sweet and fun one of the group. As a popular singer, he keeps busy. It doesn’t take long for him to fall for Ha Won, and the two of them certainly had a cute dynamic.
