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 ^_^

This drama can make you excited episode per episode!!! ^_^?

It's a must watch drama and when you start to watch it, you'll want to finish it until the end. The story line is perfect as well as the characters. Each actor have portrayed their roles perfectly and every emotion is detailed and deeply felt.

This drama will make you laugh, cry and even nervous especially in the main twists. It's worth read more watching that you'll say to yourself "This is the best K-Drama ever!!"

The music is also perfect!! It matches every scenes and can make you even cry (Not to mention the great emotion of characters) you'll definitely love the OST!!

Actually, i've watched this drama for the 6th times and i'm still watching it! I'm sure you'll re-watch this over and over again!

I recommend this all the people who never experience true love, in love, wants to be in love, broken hearted, and even people who don't believe in love--what i mean is all the people!! ^_^\/

This drama shows the true meaning of L.O.V.E. ???

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..

    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
