Hwa Yong, the older sister wants to marry Crown Prince Lee Gak, but her father makes it clear that younger sister Bu Yong will marry the Crown Prince. Hwa Yong is so upset, she uses an an iron to burn Bu Yong’s face, pretending it was an accident. Now, Bu Yong carries a big scar on her face. Eventually, older sister Hwa Yong marries Crown Prince Lee Gak. Time passes and are now adults. Younger sister Bu Yong is now a smart woman, good with needlework. Older sister Hwa Yong is uneasy that her husband, Crown Prince Lee Gak, and Bu Young get along well. One day, Crown Prince Lee Gak wakes up in the early morning. He finds that Hwa Yong is not next to him. He feels something strange about the situation and calls for an eunuch. At this time, an eunuch comes running to the Crown Prince and informs him that Hwa Yong is found dead in a pond. Lee Gak suspects that his wife’s death is not by accident. He puts together a team to investigate his wife’s death. When the team awaits to interview a witness, a group of assassins appears and chases them. Crown Prince Lee Gak and his men are chased to the edge of a cliff. The group jumps off the cliff. The Prince from the Joseon era travels to the future with his entourage Song Man Bo (Lee Min Ho), Woo Yong Sul (Jung Suk Won) and Do Chi San (Choi Woo Shik).

Seoul 2012

When Park Ha (Han Ji Min) was young, her father remarried and Park Ha gained older step-sister Se Na (Jung Yoo Mi). When their parents left for work, older step-sister Se Na despised having to take care of her younger sister. One day, while younger sister Park Ha sleeps inside a truck, the truck suddenly departs. Even though Se Na sees the truck leaving, she turns around and pretends that it isn’t happening. Time passes, younger sister Park Ha is now living in America. While, Park Ha sells fruits as a sidewalk vendor, Yong Tae Yong (Micky Yoochun) sees her and feels a connection with Park Ha. Yong Tae Moo (Lee Tae Sung) appears in front of Yong Tae Young. They are cousins. The following day, the two men boards a yacht. While the boat is sailing, they have a small fight and Yong Tae Yong falls into the water. His cousin doesn’t attempt to save Yong Tae Yong and actually attempts to hide evidence that he was there. He then jumps into the water and swims away. At this time, younger sister Park Ha receives a phone call that her family has been located in South Korea. Park Ha travels to South Korea and learns that her father has just passed away. At her father’s funeral, Park Ha meets her step-mother and older step-sister Se Na. Park Ha has no memory of how she was separated from her family. Park Ha settles down in Seoul. One night, when she comes back to her rooftop room, she discovers four men, in Korean traditional clothing, sitting in her room…..

    Candy came Says:

    Se na is such a bitch. Why is there always a scheming bitchy character in every Korean drama? It’ s like Koreans are not allowed to enjoy life but need to suffer. Even the rich ones are unhappy. Wanted to see a dra that has Park Yoo Chun in it. Never heard of him until I started watching I Miss You. Now, that one is the best drama I have seen in this last year.

    Candy came Says:

    I dislike Se Na so much! How come her sister is not mean to her. She is despicable!

    Tin Says:

    I was hesitating to watch this drama at first, and I actually even asked why this one is a top-rater. Hmm. This drama is great. It actually answered my question as I started to watch it. It has the same effect as Secret Garden did to me. I love Yoochun. Adorbs until his next drama, Missing You. :)

    lee hye ae Says:

    Rooftop prince is very different from all the Korean dramas I have watched. Even if it has only 20 episodes, I felt like I have watched so many. What is nice about RTP is that every question or problem that they included in the story were given answers and solutions. They did not end the drama hanging or lacking in any aspect. I laughed and cried while watching it. I super love the GakHa couple! <3 They really deserve the best couple award. Yoo chun's acting skills has also greatly improved in this drama, and I think this is his best performance so far. Han ji min is also a good actress and had a very great chemistry with Yoo chun that i even wished they date in real life. ^^ All in all, RTP is a very touching and memorable drama. It is a drama that I will never ever forget. ^^

    French viewer Says:

    I agree with the 2265th comment. Rooftop Prince has a very different storyline compared to the others korean dramas. I really enjoy watching it (even if it was english subtitled). Soon it will be subtitled in french, I’ll watch again.
    This drama merit to be the best. Well done for all the actors actresses, and producer…
