Rooftop Prince is now my favorite Korean drama of all. The actors, story, music, and scenes are really great. All I can say is that you can be swept away by the emotions that the actors are portraying all throughout this drama.

You'll be definitely hooked once you started watching this and can't stop yourself until you've finished the 20 episodes of it. You'll love every moment watching this drama!!! I love it so much!!!

This drama was absolutely amazing.

I started watching this drama because a friend had told me so much about it. She knew I was a sucker for romance, and thought I'd enjoy this drama.

The music was mesmerizing, and fantasically helps display the different emotions portrayed in the drama. The cast was perfect. The two leading roles had sizzling chemistry. :D

The plot was very interesting. It kept me watching episode by read more episode...I didn't skip any parts!!

I especially loved how the plot of this super amazing drama makes the viewers think if there is a "fated" or "destined" person out in the world for them (if you watch the drama, you'll understand what I mean).

I honestly recommend this drama for viewers who are looking for a romantic, historical-modern, and comedic drama. Or, for viewers who are looking for dramas that could help the time past. This is also the perfect drama to cry and laugh to.

Also, in terms of the rewatch value, I gave it a 10, because the drama captures so much detail. The filiming was beautifully captured. :)

"The Rooftop Prince" is definitely one of my favourite dramas ever!! I finished this drama in three days. That's how great this is!

Both male leads end up living with the main female lead and that order the female lead around.
Both have a rich boy who doesn't know how to work and is attached to a different lady

Accidental time travel, love, and finding who you really are, theses are the themes that make these dramas irresistible! But this time its reverse! What happens when a king ends up in the future on a girls rooftop? Well hopefully you have seen splash splash love this time its the king's turn to be the pauper!

    ok done with this. a solid 9/10 .

    it could have been perfect for me if it was shorter. 16 episode is enough. i feel that it did get a bit draggy somewhere in the middle.

    this drama combines most of the Kdrama cliche you can think of :
    ☑ sibling rivalry
    ☑ love triangle
    ☑ revenge
    ☑ search for long lost daughter/mother
    ☑ family (in this case the grandma) trying to break up the main leads
    ☑ murder
    ☑ blackmailing
    ☑ hot villain (Lee Tae Sung)
    ☑ and of course, what Kdramas is well known for - AMNESIA (well sort off)

    there's a lot more cringe worthy cliches in here but still it will keep you watching it till the end. it was a wonderful journey for me. highly recommended! :)

    edit: if you can't stand mean characters, avoid this. i swear, Jung Yoo Mi takes the word bitch to a whole new level. if i could just get inside my laptop screen i will definitely pull all her hair out from her scalp and drown her in Han river. I hate her so much that i literally killed her in my mind a hundred times. (lol sorry need to vent that out)

    This was a great drama. Anyone who is wondering youshould just watch this drama. It really good and creative. Though the description above does not give a detailed enough description of the drama. It is way better than you think.

      I don't see it. :'O But now that I think of it, I think I had the same reaction once. Don't remember which MDL page I saw that on though.

      Hmmm, maybe it depends on the region or something?

    It was a good dramas with romance, comedy and a little bit of suspense. The ending was not what I was expecting, and it let me a little confused.

    I was in a drama slump and this drama got me out! So funny, good hearted, and dramalicious. Also I hadn't cried like this with a drama for a while. I don't think the ending is bad or too sad, it's actually really beautiful and definitely tugs at the heartstrings. Simply amazing!

    Whenever I think of this drama, it crosses my mind that I would have enjoyed it more if they just stuck with the love story in the past with the Crown Prince and Boo Yong.

    I'm not a violent person but there was an irresistible urge to knock Se Na's teeth in every time she smiled and slap the smirk off Tae Mu's lips. Thank heavens I don't know anyone like those two in real life lol.

    It's really worth watching to the end despite what some people are saying about it.
    I liked it :)
