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!

but seriously this show had everything. It made me cry, it made me angry (haha soo angry can't tell you how many times I wanted to strangle people) and it made me laugh really hard, especially when you watch this on viki and see people's comments. It's great the ending made me feel sad but it was a realistic ending to a magical story

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.

Both dramas have themes of reincarnation and who you are fated to meet. In Next the main part of the story is set in modern times with long flashbacks to several historical settings. We're talking 2-episodes for each flashback; they're like mini-movies within the drama. Seriously, it's worth watching just for the flashbacks.

    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.

    Halfway through the series.. & I Must say, I love how RP manages to be a romantic and semi-tearjerking drama without loosing it's comedy. Undoubtedly one of the funniest drama's I've ever watched and definitely the best romcom drama!!

    This is my best favorite drama and I always re-watch this drama every VALENTINE's DAY :') So, this drama will never gets old for me. Think about all your Valentine's Day movies list and this drama has all of them in just one drama. Funny, thriller, spionage, horror, family, and melodrama. I mean if you really smart, all of twist plots in this drama will excite you! ^^ ...and seriously, I cried since the early episodes, realizing for this twist plot, this is really amazed me. A masterpiece! :')
