Wow…!! ‘Rooftop Prince’ is starting to hit hard on my emotions. The ‘wicked stepsister’ is getting more wicked every day. She has this uncanny ability to turn everything around to her own advantage including just literally grabbing Yi Gak/Tae Yong around the neck just at the opportune time to convince her sister [Park Ha/Bu Yong] that she, Se Na, has his utmost affection, even though Yi Gak has specifically requested Park Ha’s company. As is typical of dramas, the victim hangs her head and retires from the game, leaving Se-Na with the prize. . or, to put it succinctly, Park Ha plays basketball with Man-bo, Chi-san, and Yong-sool as a diversion to feeling her broken heart.
Yi Gak is, of course, totally innocent, and oblivious to the fact that Park Ha has been emotionally wounded–so he persists in asking her why she is avoiding him. This makes Park Ha avoid him even more, and after she disappears from a ‘family’ barbeque, Yi Gak pursues her, overtakes her, and tries to get to the bottom of the problem. His attempt at peace is rejected, so…in a huff, Yi Gak hops on his trusty bike and pedals furiously away.
Convinced that their relationship is now truly over, Park Ha picks up her cellphone and tweets a message to Yi Gak. “I like You, I love You”, never intending to send it. Of course she accidentally hits the button and, Voila!, the message is sent.
Horrified, Park Ha sees Yi Gak coming back. He approaches her in a way that helps her to realize that he has yet to access the message, so while he is getting them something to drink, she grabs his cell phone from his jacket and buries it. That would have been that–except that a dog belonging to a nearby couple starts digging the cellphone up which attracts Yi Gak’s attention, and …well,he gets the message…
Park Ha, totally humiliated, hops on her bike and leads Yi Gak for a chase. As the scene and Episode 10 closes, he has cut her off with his bike, and we have a week to wait for what comes next. Well, sorta, because what came next was my tears. TTTTTTTTTT’s Lots of tears. My heart is hurting for this warm, giving, girl who has never had a chance at true love or at being in a stable family. As the drama continues to unfold–I am rooting for Yi Gak and Park Ha as a couple. I also have my own concept of how this ends and who was responsible for the death of the Crown Princess in Joseon. I think I shall keep it to myself.
Fighting!!! Momma Cha @jyjfantalk.com
