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!

The acting of the casts were great. Worth to watch. Storyline is beautiful. One of the evidence to say that the acting was amazing will be the winner of Daesang 2015 of MBC: Ji Sung. Funny, Romantic and hot. FASTER WATCH IT......

Both of them have Joseon kings falling in love with girls from the future and both of them have time traveling elements. The big difference, however, is that in Rooftop Prince, the king gets to travel to the future while in Splash Splash Love, the girl gets to travel to the past (Joseon). They are also similar because of the reincarnation/past life elements (people from the past are also in the present time but have different identity).

    The ending left me a bit confused, but it was an overall solid series. I prefer Queen In Hyun's Man as far as time travelling romances go. Glad I finally watched this one though.

    I didn't like the first episode, it was really boring, and the second one was funny but didn't intrigue me. I already hate the sister and the cousin (?) of the guy who was killed in the beginning. So far, the other supporting characters also don't seem very special. I only like the heroine so far. Is it really worth watching if I didn't enjoy the first two episodes? :( It has such good ratings but I just can't seem to get into it.

      Ikr! I hate the sister and the cousin too, that's why I don't know should I continue watching or not.
