This is a time-travel drama which also involves reincarnations.
Joseon Era (18th Century) – Crown Prince Lee Gak lost his Crown Princess Hwa Young and he believes that she was murdered. He gathered 3 warriors (Song Man Bo, Woo Yong Sool, Do Chi San) to help him investigate the case. During the investigation, they were hunted by a group of bandits and ended up disappearing.
Seoul (2012) – The Prince and his 3 warriors appeared on the rooftop apartment of Park Ha. After they realized that they jumped 300 years to the future, they concluded that they were sent there so that they can investigate the death of the Princess. They attached themselves to Park Ha because they don’t know anyone except her since she’s the first person they met and she is very nice.
Park Ha grew up in the US because she was adopted after she lost her memory due to an accident when she was only 9 years old. She came back to South Korea because she found her biological father after searching for a long time. She reunited with her dad’s 2nd family but her step sister Se Na didn’t like her at all. She took care of the 4 strangers that appeared on her rooftop apartment and thought them how to survive the present. They became great friends and she believed that they came from the Joseon Era.
This drama is awesome ! Rooftop Prince is one of my favorite Korean drama ever ! I really enjoy watching all the characters here, especially the 2 main characters, Lee Gak and Park Ha. Han Jim Min and Micky Yoochun’s chemistry are so great! Micky has an amazing and unique ability as an actor/comedian. Wow! What a delightful experience it is to watch him. His body language and expressions are so endearing. This drama will not be forgotten because of his talent. Also I cannot speak well enough of Han Ji Mins’ talent. She is lovely and combines strength and vulnerability, seriousness and cuteness perfectly. Often actresses are either too cute or too serious. The dynamic between hers and Mickys’ character is so much fun to watch. I have never been so delighted by a couple before. I hope they do more parts together.
The best part of Rooftop Prince was Prince Lee Gak’s royal entourage Song Man-bo, Do Chi-san, and Woo Yong-sul. They provided much of the laughs they tried to navigate through the daily life of modern-day society. It was a fun ride watching them evolve from their roles as Prince Lee Gak’s underlings to developing their own personalities and opinions. Yong Sul is the most funny character that can makes me laugh so hard. Crown Prince, Yong Sul, Man Bo, and Chi San are called Joseon Rangers by viewers. Seriously, i love the scenes when they’re coming out.
Overall, I really love this drama a lot ! ^^ This drama builds me up, yet it breaks me down too. Laughed hard, cried harder. Love the story, every single episode. Every single scene. Every single second. Good job !
