This Review of Cinderella and Four Knights Contains Some Spoilers in the Form of Fangirl Squees

I didn’t go into this drama with exceptionally high expectations.  I wanted something bubbly and fun with lots of cutesy romantic moments.  I didn’t think that was too much to ask for.  Plus I have enjoyed Jung Il Woo in everything I’ve watched of his.  Also, I adore Lee Jung Shin, CNBLUE is one of my favorite bands.  It had potential to be a fun bit of brain candy.  There was so much potential in this show, loads of it.  Sadly, it never took advantage of any of the story opportunities.  Combined with the flat writing and cliche plot points I was disappointed, even with my low expectations.   Don’t get me wrong, there were things to like with this drama, but the things I could live without overwhelmed what could have been a fun drama.

Ha Won wakes up in bed with Ja Yeong and then she remembers the night before!  The kisses!  She sneaks past a passed out Ji Woon outside of her room and heads to the bathroom and then starts to sigh happily as she remembers the kisses again.  Then scolds herself and as she has a mini freak out about the kisses she slips on the soap and knocks herself out.  Yoon Sung whisks her off to the ER and then calls to send the others home.  Ji Woon is remembering the kisses too and have his own mini freak out.  Hyun Min is having trouble dealing with the moment that he and Hye Ji shared.  Ha Won wakes up in the hospital and is shocked that she didn’t sleep through a week at least or lose her memories.  Yoon Sung has her transferred to the hospital in Seoul because she’s also sprained her ankle badly and needs a cast.  During the drive to Seoul, Ha Won teases Yoon Sung about not being able to hold his alcohol.  He kindly and bashfully asks her to forget that.  Then asks if she was drunk too.  She stutters and says she doesn’t remember anything which of course makes it obvious that something occurred.

Episode 7

The confession and rejection are filmed by the school cameras along with being live cast to the whole school.  Hye Ji and Ji Woon watch Ha Won and Hyun Min together, she’s upset yet again. I really want her to grow a backbone or grow at least a little.  She is such a static character caught in a really bad place mentally, her whole identity is based on her former relationship with Hyun Min.  Ha Won tells Hyun Min that he needs to think, really think about if he likes or not and how he treats his family and women in his life.  Hyun Min is very shook up over that.  Seo Woo is stuck at the school, the fangirls won’t let him leave.  He bluffs and says he sees CNBLUE!  I laughed a lot at that.  He gets away and Ha Won’s BFF, Hong Ja Yeong, yanks him into a room to hide from the hoard.  To get away they devise a plan, Seo Woo will wear Hong Ja Yeong’s uniform and run away.  This scene was flipping hilarious!  I ship these two so much!  I really hope they end up together in the end!
