The characters of “Grand Prince” may hail from the bygone Joseon Dynasty, but that doesn’t stop them from being super relatable, even amid all the dramatic palace politics and romantic strife. Here are seven times from this week’s episodes when we related hard to these princes and ladies — see which ones you identify with!
Warning: very light spoilers for Episodes 9 and 10 ahead!
1. When you meet someone who’s weirder than you are
If you’ve ever felt like as much of a crazy person as Roo Shi Gae (Son Ji Hyun) among the prim palace court ladies, then you know the surprise of finding someone just as wonderfully odd as you are.
2. When you’re just done with everyone
Sung Ja Hyeon (Jin Se Yeon) tries to cling desperately to the hope that Prince Hwi (Yoon Shi Yoon) is alive while everyone from her parents to the royal family (looking at you, Prince Kang) pressures her to marry someone else. But even if you don’t have all that working against you, you’ve probably empathized with this sentiment before:
3. When you’re entirely food-motivated
Because sometimes you just see no reason to do something…
Unless there’s a tasty incentive to make it worth your while.
4. When you don’t have time for stupidity
Sometimes you just have to give people a reality check, like Kkeut Dan (Moon Ji In) does when she makes Ja Hyun’s brother see the shallowness of his crush on her.
5. When you see an annoyingly cute couple
And other people are all:
But you’re just like:
6. When you’re bad at hiding your true thoughts
It’s not always easy to be nice when you’re not feeling very nice… but hopefully we don’t all come across as obviously unenthusiastic as Prince Kang (Joo Sang Wook)’s halfhearted attempt at being fake-polite to his brother Hwi.
7. When you watch too many emotional K-dramas
And everyone around you is concerned.
So you have to play it off like you’re fine.
We’re fine, “Grand Prince” is just wrecking our hearts with its cliffhangers and drama!
