SBS’s “Rooftop Prince” starring Park Yoochun has aired it’s first episode. It is presently on drama sites with partial subs. This has been a much anticipated drama, especially in light of the recent actual sasaeng drama and parental loss in the lives of Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu. This brings some sunshine in along with the sincere efforts of Junsu to cheer us up.. Congratulations Yoochun. I will write a review as soon as I have opportunity.
I just finished watching Episode One of Rooftop Prince with English subs at www.viki.com
This drama is considerably complicated and starts very tragically with the death of the Crown Princess. She is not what she appears to be, and is dearly loved by the Crown Prince (Yoochun). This story line has the feel of Cinderella minus the wicked stepmother. Why have a wicked stepmother when you can have a wicked step-sister? As is natural, the Crown Prince suspects foul play, and the instinctive viewer finger points to the wronged sister of the Crown Princess.
There is a huge amount of hopping back and forth between time. Yoochun’s modern character drowns (through actual foul play), and the Crown Prince and his royal band of vigilantes end up in the apartment of the modern-day wronged step-sister.
This drama is going to be complicated and will need intense direction in order to keep the viewer from being disoriented. Over-all it looks like a great storyline, humorous and not-so-humorous plot, and I am looking forward to Episode Two. Park Yoochun is doing an excellent job of acting and so are the other characters, especially the child actresses. Episode Two should help the plot to settle in and then we will be off on a Grand Adventure!!!
O.K. Episode Two is hilarious, especially the fire scene and teaching the Guys modern conveniences like ‘ahem’ toilets. The Crown Prince is getting the picture rapidly . He knows that they have time-traveled 300 years and this will prove interesting. BTW. What’s with the alcohol and whipped cream? This Momma must be behind the times. Absolutely funny!
Episode Three of Rooftop Prince is out. My Goodness. I laughed so hard my ribs hurt. This drama is proving to be a wonderfully hilarious ride full of quirky surprises and lots of emotional angst. Just what we all like, right? The elevator scene is so funny, funny, funny. Poor Guys, picturetakers, cameras, and all.
I wanted to cry with Micky at the palace. He can look so pathetic, can’t he? Crocodile Tears. TT
There is so much, how do you cover it all? I love everything about this drama. The characters, the plot, the colors, the situation…YAWWWW……… Momma Cha 😉 <3
Fighting Park Yoochun!!!! Momma Cha
