Whether as Park Ha or Bu Yong, her brains are always on display. No, not literally! As Bu Yong, she was clearly the smarter of the two sisters who could always answer the Crown Prince’s riddles and playfully banter with him in poetry. She had even saved her sister, Hong Hwa Yong, from shame and embarrassment on multiple occasions by engaging Lee Gak in distracting conversation when it was clear her sister had no idea how to respond to the Crown Prince’s apparent adoration for poetry and literature. In the present day as Park Ha, she has been independent practically her entire life and knows how to take care of herself. If something is fishy, Park Ha can usually tell.

It takes a lot of courage and guts to team up with Lee Gak in order to draw out criminals, Hong Se Na and Yong Tae Mu, but Park Ha does it with fierce determination. She willingly dives into danger to bring justice and help Lee Gak solve the mystery of why he was transported to the modern times and figure out what really happened to Yong Tae Yong, his present day self. As her past self, there is no better sign of inner strength than to willingly eat dried permissions that have been sprinkled with poison, knowing that she’s, not only saving her evil family, but the Crown Prince as well.

How much influential power does it take to make a Crown Prince lose his composure and participate in childish pranks? How much influence must he be under in order to squeal and prance around after realizing how fun the modern times can be? Enough said! Haha.
