The story, my god. It was amazing. There are twists and turns around every corner. YOU'LL THINK YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT YOU'RE WRONG. The writers have crafted this story so well.

The cast----they stick onto you. Even when the drama's over, you'll have their faces and obsession over omourice engraved into your head. I LOVED LOVED LOVED the acting. I sat in the corner of my room and read more cried my butt off. When Lee Gak and Park Ha cry, it's so sincere that I get goosebumps.

The music---it's very catchy. But they keep replaying it over and over again. There was a part in Episode 20 that the music was abruptly cut off. Other than that, everything was A-OK.

Many people can get confused by the storyline.
So it's a definite MUST, to rewatch the drama. You might catch things that you've missed. ;D

Overall, I definitely recommend this drama to those who can handle mood swings. One episode and you'll be hooked. Dare to test my theory?

Okay Micky Yoochun, Lee Min Ho-I, Choi Woo Sik, and Jeong Seok-won, can I tell you these guys with their hair, really, really cute without the hair, what more can I say?
One of the best really rated above 10.
The story about the Chosen dynasty, evil sister, evil wanna be heir.
Love is in the mix which makes it all worthwhile.
the story line is filled with history, romance, comedy, action, read more (really), tears, you'll be crying and laughing at the antics of these 4 at the same time.
Not boring at all, a must watch, you'll be hooked from the first episode and the OST is amazing.
And oh yeah, kiss scene!!

IT ENDS THE SAME EXACT WAY FOR SOME CRAZY REASON. Except Gu Family Book doesn't have a sequel, neither does Rooftop Prince, BUT GFB NEEDS A SEQUEL. It kills me even now..

Just like 49 Days, the main theme surrounding Rooftop Prince involved scheming, greed and theft of property/money.

Both shows focuses on the struggle of the MC in terms of finding out that the people closest to them were the ones who hated them the most. However, they each don't find it out directly as themselves.

I think it's really enjoyable just as 49 Days and it both captures the theme powerfully in a sense.

    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..

    Still my favorite drama. Idk but this is the only drama that manages to be sad and funny at the same time. And with sad I mean so sad that it makes you cry and sob out loud and with funny I mean you can't help but laugh until your stomach hurts. And all that in every single episode. Definitely not boring but mustwatch drama! Go and watch it already lol

    I cry everytime I see that ending. And I'm not talking about tears falling silently I'm talking about REALLY CRYING AND SOBBING.
    I don't have words to describe how much I love Rooftop Prince.
