I’ll say one thing for this drama – they sure do show a lot in the previews and this episode went so fast I had a hard time catching up- it went as fast as the last episode of MSOAN-bam bam bam- one scene right after another- person cant catch her breath here…whew…but I like this episode ten times more than the first one. No yawns this time cuz I didnt have time – they dont give you a second to be bored. They made every scene count – that was pretty smart cuz that is how they got to me 🙂 — I’m pretty sure they chose to watch Roman Holiday since it is a story about a princess who escapes her life for a brief time to fall in love. No one should even like Roman Holiday’s ending cuz it’s not happy. She has to say goodbye and go back to her royal duties and the man who fell in love with her has to learn to live without her. They both exist separately, but we know the time they shared will live on in them forever. No matter how this drama ends, I already sense that connection that lasts a lifetime has already begun between HY and LS. Though they have only met a few times, she is getting to him. You can tell from watching his amusement over her antics and letting her take the reins and pretend to be his gf says a lot. Now all she has to do is abandon her school girl crush on J and catch up to HY.That moment is the hook for me and I am going to hang on-not tightly-but just enough to give it a fair chance. Just in case that wasnt clear enough – I am going to continue transcaps for both My Princess and Dream High (but in this format – not like SG’s -that one takes over 9hrs to do- this style takes less than 5) — forget the great grandpa scene-sageuk just is not my thing- just cant translate that – go read dramabeans tm will try to fill in more translations tm but if it doesnt happen by tm night it is not gonna happen at all —— My Princess E2 —– It starts from LS calling HY back on her cell phone. when LS asks why he wants to stay here he reminds her she wanted to make money while her mom was away after they go in, she asks what style of room he prefers and shows two rooms and gives them names like royal grand presidential suite and the room next door is the royal ambassader suite but they are like tiny rooms-he chooses the first one She tells him how much the rooms are per night/day it is usually $150 for i night two days but since he is staying for two nights, she’ll settle for $295 she tells him to pay in advance he tries to pay with credit card she says the card machine broke 5 mins ago before he came he gives her $1000 and asks for $705 in change but she says he can make a direct deposit online and gives him the bank info and wishes him happy banking and leaves him alone to do it the way she calculates and stuff HY remarks she takes after his grandpa completely HY looks at pic of LS’s mom and says she is not his grandpa’s style at all HY calls G and says he found her but he cant leave right now he is calling to say he cant come right now and didnt want them to worry he says he is going to watch her and if it looks like she really cant be it then he is going back alone She makes the smell of bacon waft upstairs HY comes down and asks if there is a restaurant (she says it takes an hour and a half to get there and is closer to Seoul), mart (supermarket- there isnt one she says), or convenient store nearby and she says it is by the highway HY rubs his tummy in hunger LS: you must be really hungry I dont have that much set but would you like to have some of this at least? and invites him to eat there instead she charges basic meal $30 and a bit more $50 and she pushes for the $50 but he wants the basic she makes him settle for the more expensive one by waving around the bacon — Y gets interviewed she is honest and says rumors are that she got chosen by looks and not her talent he asks how she got started she mentions it was her first love and talks about whose son someone was and stuff flashback scene of J and Y J promises to find those scrolls I am guessing (this part of the story is where they always lose me cuz the language gets super hard) they went thru a lot begging for info here and then going to a temple place and finding out the scroll was a fake the last question the reporter asks is the rumor about how expensive it was she says she cant put a price on it with her own mouth (meaning she cant say the price) she wants to keep that a secret — Y meets J and says she thought he wouldnt call her for a long time J;if I do that a day is too long Y says she is sorry and knows how he feels J: you knew and did it? Y says she didnt run away and came to beg for forgiveness so she asks for some leniency/understanding he asks why she did it she doesnt want to say and he says she should since he needs to understand she did it cuz the chairman wanted it and she and G cant go against his wishes he says she must have had a hard time but he isnt that sympathetic when he says that —- president’s staff gets mad that all of korea knew what he doesnt chairman is meeting the president in secret there are two people in there so he cant listen in so he tells his aid to go listen in the aid says how can I when it is just the two of them in there the old guy tells him he should do it like in the movies and try to find a way to eavesdrop — the president and the chairman are meeting and talking about what the chairman is doing the president wishes the chairman good health and asks if it is going well they seem to have a great relationship — HY comes running out in a towel complaining HY: ya – no hot water is coming out here! she says it’s $5 extra for hot water HY: what? you’re really …..hurry and turn the radiator on – I cant even shower with cold water in the summer LS: you’re trying to save $5 like this? I’m going out for a second to the store- should I buy you something on my way back like bread… HY: no just hurry and turn the boiler…ya- bread? where are you going to buy something like that? you said there were no nearby convenient stores LS: there are no convenient stores so that is why I am going to a corner store (one of those tiny stores in korea that isnt so nice and pretty) HY: what? LS: a while ago you should have asked me if there were any corner stores- i thought since you bought an expensive ring in a dept store- i didnt think you would go to places like a corner store wanna go together – it wont even take 5 mins to get there HY: what?! — he sits in his room and hears the movie roman holiday he goes out and blocks the screen so she tells him to sit down he says it is cold outside so what is she doing LS says something about a one of a kind fantastic theater he makes fun of her pronunciation so she tells him to spit out her butter popcorn he shoves some in her mouth playfully HY: just watch the movie – when you watch Hepburn do you feel anything? he marvels how good she is no matter how much you see her they watch the scene where the princess sticks her hand inside the mouth in the wall the window suddenly opens so she goes to close it he asks: is this neighborhood your hometown she says she has lived here since she was 6 so it’s like that HY: where were you before that? LS: here and there then in the orphanage for ten months-I was adopted when I first came to this house – on the first night i didnt cry or laugh like a baby in a mother’s womb -I just slept a lot he asks if she remembers anything about her real parents LS: what if I do? will you find them? HY: eh? LS: dont have to be afraid not sure if i remember, if i dreampt it, or if I made it all up he says he can help find them -it would be better than you finding them alone LS: said he would be right back HY: who? your dad? she says she cant remember his face but I remember what he said : I will come right back dad will be right back but “right back” is really long she says the way I smile is really pretty huh?every time I missed my father I practiced when my father comes back and finds me- i’m gonna smile for him [didnt understand what they said here but it was something like how he felt bad she had to go through that and she says dont most kids go thru that with their parents] HY: by some chance – if you find your real parent tm what do you think it will be like? LS: she says she has to go by the situation -see how much inheritance there is HY: say that there is an inheritance LS: do some family tree research to see how many siblings there are HY: how can a small girl like you think like that she gets a call it is from the woman in the office that works with the professor the woman wants the professor to come here tm and asks for LS’s help LS welcomes the idea of having him come there — LS cleans and makes the place pretty the woman narrates J will be uncomfortable if he knows it is her place so to pretend they met here – all by chance LS: I’m begging you HY: there are a lot of empty rooms so why are you asking me to move from a room I am using LS: my room is right in front so when we go back and forth we can naturally run into each other and …blossom HY repeats blossom? LS: so what I am saying is….changes her tone to more demanding just move -it’s not that hard to do HY: who is coming for you to do this? a guy? what does this guy do? LS: my professor is not someone who should here stuff like that from you fine- just know there is no food today for you car pulls up omo – he must be here already what should I do holds onto HY’s arm while I change clothes stall some time for me huh? friendly and warmly ok? (or maybe the word was welcomingly) she runs up HY: ya – ya – why should I…. he gets an idea and calls up :ok – take your time and come J shows up with another guy and there is a sign she had put up (i’m assuming to welcome guests) which makes J smile J asks HY if he is the owner J wonders where the proprietor is and HY says that person is changing clothes HY asks which one is the professor nam J says he is and HY says you look like you would from first glance (the other guy is not attractive is why) HY mutters to himself that J since J is a professor he should be lecturing not being at a place like this (LOL) LS comes out and acts all surprised to seeJ-saying how shocked she is J asks what she is doing here and she says it is her home LS: this is so amazing how could there be such a coincidence J asks who HY is HY puts his arm around her and says “for the time being we are living in the same house'” and kisses her cheek J says to LS: so you were dating? i didnt know – congratulations fighting off HY’s arm around her shoulder the whole time LS: no professor – I’m not – dont congratulate me…that’s not it…. HY tells J :I’ll show you around – the room you are staying in is the royal grand executive presidential suite and the room right in front is our room you can knock on it comfortably when you need us and the rate is 1night two days is $150 and of course it has to be in cash to LS: should we go in first? —- LS starts beating him up when they get inside LS: are you crazy? one house what? HY: why? dont you remember what you did grabbing her arm like she did when she met Y: I heard a lot about you from oppa LS: i did that so things would go well with you The curator you like is someone I dont like HY: isnt that perfectly natural- girls usually dislikes girls who are more popular than them LS: it’s not cuz she is popular she knows everything but acts like she doesnt know -she acts innocent so guys fall for that HY: Y doesnt even know the word “acts like” exists in the korean language LS: she is going to marry someone else but ….but you sure have no clue you really like her that much? ah-he must really like her it’s a little touching let’s make up again she orders HY to bring all that outside or no food for him HY complains she always threatens with food HY gets a call from his grandpa he tells him that she seemed to have grown up well HY says he didnt tell her yet grandpa tells him to hurry up and bring her there after he hangs up the grandpa say she should have the satchel with her —————- Y takes coffee for J and his friend and HY takes one (he took hers) she sees the pic of the small royal satchel when the two guys are talking (think this is the princess one) she asks J what it is J: during class you just looked at my face huh? I covered this in my lecture already YS; no wonder I thought I saw it in my house the other guy thinks she is cute and they talk about the satchel then the other guy talks about Y and how he saw her on the news Y is really impressive – without any fear she became curator before she succeeds even more shouldnt she get married first J: dont talk nonsense the guy: this is why you shouldnt date for a long time HY overheard all that and LS is nervous the whole time HY was glaring at J so J asks do you have something to say to me? LS lies and says she forgot to turn off the gas she asks HY to go in with her for a sec —- HY asks if they are talking about the same Y he knows LS pretends she didnt know the curator’s name was Y HY: you better tell me the truth why are they talking about marrying Y or not she tries to change subject and asks if he likes bean soup or kimchi stew HY: are you going to keep changing subjects? you knew from the very start huh? she owns up she says there was a rumor Y is J’s first love but now that she heard all that it must be true LS to HY:do you have the confidence to win a first love he says he isnt the kind of guy who needs to do that she says he is already lost to the daehan grandchild she said she kept it a secret cuz she doesnt want J to know about HY she would prefer if J got dumped by Y she asks HY to help her so that she can follow J to egypt and make him hers she wants HY to help make J jealous but he doesnt even listen to her plan —- she tells him to hold her arm so she can yell she wants to pretend she needs J’s help HY guesses what she is up to and wont play along HY takes her up and says to pack her stuff so they can leave he says they are going to Seoul she rattles on and he interrupts he thinks she is his aunt (LOL) LS: what? HY: i think you are my aunt LS: aunt? what aunt? HY: you dont know what an aunt is i think you are my grandfather’s daughter it is upsetting isnt it? I feel that way too LS: so you’re saying I am (someone’s girl who) has a great car, can buy expensive rings on a whim, your older than me but I am your aunt? HY: yes LS: you have proof it’s strange if you want to find your lost daughter- a parent should come-or another relative how could they send her nephew who is older to come get her if I was the real daughter – either show a picture or birth certificate or personal item and ask if this yours or not do you remember it or not – shouldnt you ask something like that HY says the grandpa is ill right now she thinks they want her liver or an organ or something and that is why he is saying these things he speaks down to her so she says how can you talk to your aunt like that she asks if the grandpa’s health isnt too serious she asks if he lives well she insinuates that they might be tricking her so he points out didnt you watch how I behave? she says just cuz you charge a lot on your card doesnt mean much but he says after you make sure later dont like it and fall for it he tells her to hurry and pack she tells him there are customers so stop joking he gets serious and says he isnt kidding — HY goes outside to J- you said you were her professor since you know each other I hope you will be understanding her life is going to turn upside down so she needs to be gone from the house for a while LS says HY is surprising the professor saying it like that and she aplogizes to J HY to LS: you just stand still – what else is more important than this in your life-why are you sorry?

G: chairman waited all these years for this moment HY: how can that person inside be a princess? what princess? how can an aunt be a princess? G: I was hoping that person inside wouldnt show up for you, me and Y for daehan group for all our sake all my life -before what I wanted- I respected and folllowed the chairman’s orders and even this time it is the same HY is angry cuz G wont move out of the way — chairman tells LS to sit down he opens a pretty box and takes out an old pic she recognizes him as (no clue what royalty titles are) he says he is going to tell a story from a long time ago flashback a little boy with his dad little boy is the chairman and the man next to him is his dad and the king looking guy gives the boy’s father something *The king looking guy is LS’s great grandfather-Joseon’s last emperor Sunjong he had an unknown legitimate son and LS is descended from that lineage only part of conversation I caught was something about a father with no strength the boy echoes what is said -cute kid the chairman says the guy ran away with the last child end flashback so the chairman is asking for her forgiveness LS says so you are saying I am Royalty she says she dreamt of being a princess as a kid hw says it is for real she really is one she cant believe someone from joseon time is still alive (meaning the grandpa is old) but she changes her statement since it is rude to “of course someone from joseon time should be alive he shows a pic of a man she doesnt know him she explains she doesnt remember before 5yrs old he asks her to remember-she has to remember LS: I have to remember to remember – I really dont have any memory she remembers crying alot in an alley, was there ever a girl who didnt cry in an alley? strawberry hair tie, and a helicopter i dont know if all of this is my memory if I dreamt it or if I made it up she wants to know why she has to remember he gives her a pouch and asks her to open it there is a strawberry hair tie (this means she really was there ) he looks at the pic and tells the man in the pic that he found the princess she remembers the construction site from 20 yrs ago she finds out the guy in the pic is her dad chairman: you really dont remember? she asks where her dad is now chairman tells her he has passed away and begs her to forgive him (chairman) she runs off — [*do not know one word of what they are saying – it has been over a month since SKKS ended so i am rusty with this sageuk talk -not helping the confusion is the king guy is played by professor jung and the boy’s father is played by the king from SKKS-this time professor jung is standing and the king guy is kneeling- how funny is that?] ——- HY is pacing outside he asks if the talk is over he asks if she is running away she says he told me my father is dead and that I am a princess something is wrong with your grandpa huh? dont restrain me and she walks off he drives up and pulls over and says he will take her they can talk on the way she cries and says it isnt my father my father promised me-he would be back soon so he cant do this to me I waited so long he cant die on me he cant throw me away again she keeps crying he hugs her — from crying so much LS has raccoon eyes from her running mascara she goes home but the house code is still different HY asks why she doesnt have a key she said it is her sister’s house and not hers HY asks if they dont get along she says they fight a lot she is afraid to call cuz she will get yelled at he asks if her older sister is the parents real daughter LS: no my older sister was adopted too we are the same age too but mom said even twins have older and younger sister she told us to do rock paper scissors [to see who would be the older one] and I lost she tells him to go cuz she has lots of places to go… he said he knows and he wants to be included as one of those places and tells her to follow him [was that real snow?] —– he takes her home to his place he shows her his guest room and where the bathroom is and calls the room the presidential suite and the rate is $150 she says she is going to wash up and he says it will be $5 extra for hot water she looks at her face and washes her face saying My father is not dead he will return — the mom is buying LD a new outfit LD feels bad about LS the mom says when LS graduates she will buy her an outfit later LD says you think she will graduate? the mom says she thinks the same way that LS wont that is why she keeps calling her down to the pension to give her lessons in working — Hy makes a nice dinner with steak and everything [how long was she in that bathroom?????] she asks you know how to cook?

LS is trying to keep it in Y asks if by any chance the chairman….. HY gets a call [this is hard to translate cuz she says something but he says something in response that doesnt sound like direct answers to her comments cuz he has to pretend this call is about anything but the bathroom issue] LS says it is urgent and she needs to go to the bathroom and he tells her to take care of problems like that herself-in your opinion – what should I do LS: if you dont want to be caught tell her to leave quickly HY I get that you are frustrated but you have to think carefully and answer it’s an important problem right now-isnt it? she says she is going to die [ you can see that she cant even breathe properly] HY: why are you like this all of a sudden?
