Can you time-travel again and go straight to my room?
So here’s my official Rooftop Prince ramblings… *sniff *sniff
Joseon Era – All was doing well with Prince Yi-gak. The empire is smooth sailing and he enjoys afternoon walks with his princess and riddle games with his sister-in-law. Until a morning of surprise when the Crown Princess laid dead on the lake. Determined to catch the culprit on the Princess’ death, he gathered 3 of the most useful Joseon men he could find and off they go to uncover the mystery.
In their pursuit to unveil the cause of the Princess’ death, they were transported 300 years after to modern Korea and landed to Park Ha’s rooftop house. From there the real adventure began. They have to face the difference brought about by the time and villains with equally pathetic motivations who failed miserably to their evilness act. I guess they didn’t complete Voldemort’s workshop.
The finale episodes were heartbreaking for me, but I at least got the closure I deserved. I’m particularly stern with this drama but the refreshing soul won me over. So even if I have to absorb a lot partuclarly in the last episode, I have no regrets. Bu-yong eating all those persimmons because of her secret love to the Prince, who has the right to argue?!
This was the first drama I saw with reincarnation plot in full swing (memory searching… really no other drama with reincarnation plot yet). The adorable 3 Musketeers were a bundle of bliss, a sight to behold, a manna from Heaven. The laughter I got from their modern transformation supplied enough happiness pills to cover the recent job nausea I’m getting at work.
The cute lead couple exhibited on screen chemistry. Lead couple for rom-coms has a tendency to be so tiring to watch if they get either super-insensitivity attack or overly-loving complex. Yi Gak and Park Ha were smooth as a couple. The romance was not rushed, and with that love-transcending-time premise, excuse me Romeo and Juliet here’s the couple to beat.
It was not your perfect drama technical and script wise… in fact there were a few labyrinth-bound story plots and out of place conflicts, but then again the sweet moments and the laughter were all so worth it, so you would hardly notice the lapses… It’s that love tale that I don’t want to end and I can’t get enough of, and the reincarnation storyline somewhat helped me to move on…
Well actually Tom oppa was praying that Prince Yi Gak gets reincarnated, I yearn the same but I’m wishing he will end up straight to my room, if that will not happen, let he be reincarnated as a cat and lose his way until he is left no choice but to agree to be with me. *giggles
Tom Oppa and I will miss the squabbling blockhead couple and their loyal power ranger ducklings… Heck we will even miss the one-sided villain who can’t even kill a mobile phone or his same confused facial expression all throughout the series. I wonder what’s wrong with him not being able to successfully execute his vile prowess. Is it him or the writer of the story?
I begged that the drama will not end. Honestly, I felt that they could still have made it longer. It made me feel so insatiable watching it. Rooftop Prince is breezy, blithe and beautiful… It’s my romcom of choice so far this year. ^_^
