It is interesting to note how hot this topic was in the Korean entertainment news when the episode aired. The producers of the show knew it would be and made sure to advertise that this information would be revealed before they aired the episode. There is a lot of pressure for females in Korea to be skinny, with the pressure even higher for those that appear on TV. The measurements shown on Real Men were all higher for weight and lower for height than what their public profiles, available on Naver, state.

While the show didnt air all the post-examination interviews, it showed through the interviews of Hyeri and Kim So Yeon and through the expressions on the casts faces that none of them welcomed such revelation. In fact, they were embarrassed and Kim So Yeon and Hyeri made excuses for weighing more than what people expected them to. Even at those measurements displayed in the show, Hyeri and Kim So Yeon are underweight.

[HanCinema"s Drama Review] "Drama Special - Hwapyeong Princess"s Weight Loss"

News via hancinema.net

Its deeper thematic elements aren"t quite so unique. Whereas "200 Pounds Beauty" had obvious satirical elements at play regarding the way perception plays with the way we treat other people, "Drama Special - Hwapyeong Princess"s Weight Loss" is a much more straightforward tale of how true beauty is on the inside, and the people who can"t recognize that are jerks who aren"t worth your time. Obviously Yoo Jin looks a lot better without the fat suit but the ending at least pays lip service to the idea that Princess Hwapyeong deserves dignity regardless of the way she looks.

In a really stretched interpretation, the drama"s also saying that what"s really important in love is to have someone who can directly inspire change via direct encouragement rather than just sneaking around surreptitiously. Once Princess Hwapyeong starts to look like Yoo Jin, her attitude also changes markedly. She decides to pick better battles, and live for something more noble than the love of a man, even if that"s at least a partial motivation.

Also there"s jokes. It"s a romantic comedy- what did you expect? "Drama Special - Hwapyeong Princess"s Weight Loss" mostly coasts by on strength of its concept along with various visual flourishes to give the impression of a mildly adult fairy tale. It"s not really that objectively impressively, and some of the plot points linger on a bit too long when the story direction is pretty predictable. Regardless, the drama succeeds in its basic goals, and should not be faulted for that.
