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.

It was not your perfect drama technical and script wise… read more 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…

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… -jediprincess ^_^

"There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment."

This is the story of an endless love. A love that transcend eras. A love so powerful, not even dead can take it apart. Add to that, comedy, mystery, intrigue and an entourage that are sweet as honey, though as metal, and lovely as a teddy bear!

All I have read more to say is...You would be with the person, you're destined to be and love, in this life...or the other.

Did you ever had that "ah, they're so twisted that they're perfect for each other" feeling while watching a couple?..if not, you'll have it watching both series.

In Rooftop Prince the evil woman is so good at playing her role that she convinces you to hate her with all your guts and pity her craziness, all at the same time. She gets you at the point where you love to hate her. Same goes with Gyo Chae Yeon, with the difference that she isn't as humane as Se Na.

    Not too sad but not happy (at all), not too heavy in story as well.
    But I loved it man!

    not really my favourite.. but this drama has good story, good twist, and realistic ending. the only thing that a little bother me is, i think the crown prince and co. a little too well in adapting to modern world. after 1/4 story, they act almost like "natives" modern people..
