Rooftop Prince (RTP) or 옥탑방왕세자 in Hanguk (Pronounced as ‘oktabbang hwangseja’) is truly…the best, clear, smoothest drama I ever watch. Maybe to some people, I declared this too early, but..as far as I know, this drama keep me on my toes and eagerly anticipate on what happened next. And make me wish everyday is Wednesday & Thursday. bwahahahaha~
I have watched too many Korean drama… Most of the dramas are predictable, become cheesy after 10th episode & got messy storyline. Transition from one scene to another scene…always..not making any sense at all. BUT! It is different with this drama. I am talking here not based on my bias towards JYJ.. truly from my passion on Korean drama. 🙂 *yeah, please believe me* LOL
On this part 1, I would like to babbling about the characters… Without revealing too many information/spoiler. Just my thought on the RTP’s characters. Which I am so amazed about.
Now, let’s see, in most Korean drama, must have PROTAGONIST & ANTAGONIST right? In our daily life & in any drama all over the world too, I assume.Yes, I can accept that fact . The only things that bug me about Korean drama is..why the antagonist characters, they must be real evil bitches/bastards? Always makes me want to smack my lappy while watching them or make me want to throw towel to the screen. Grrrr…
I think..the only Korean Drama that the antagonist characters are not so evil is none other than…drama Protect The Boss. (Jaejoongieeeee my love!!! LOL).Seriously, this drama, the antagonist roles are less intimidating and not typical.
Anyway, there are no difference with this RTP drama, the antagonist actor & actress are really evil. EVIL like nobody’s business. I really…really…really hate it! I do mean it. Grrrrr…. I am gritting my teeth every time I watched the evil splashing scene..GRRRRRRR~ I hate u, Se Na. I can hate you forever! Arrggghhhh!!!
My main point here is, in RTP, they got the characters right in the places, fitting with each other perfectly like custom glove & the characters’ development are also quite smooth. You can guess each characters while watching it without saying much or showed it too much, just to make sure that the viewers got the message right. Yeah. We do not need that. A simple gestures, message, dialogues, we can pretty guess it, alright. Not dragging, over-exposed or anything. It is just simply right. I love it! LOL.
Apparently, we can think & analyzed it on ourselves, thank you very much. We definitely can READ BETWEEN THE LINES. That is what I love about RTP. The scriptwriter treat us, like adult and smart people. I am kind of like..that facts. I feel like genius. LOL.
Below are the main casts:-
1st..Micky Yoochun. The gorgeous man, the cutiepie, adorable dorky Yoochunnie.. As Crown Prince Lee Gak/Yong Tae Yong
2nd..lead actress..Han Ji Min..The noona. As Pak Ha/Bu Yong.
3rd..the evil sister..Jung Yoo Mi..As Se Na/Hwa Yong
4th..the evil cousin of Yong Tae Yong, the irritating Joon Gu from Playful Kisses, Lee Tae Sung. As Tae Mu
Han Ji Min & Yoochun..not awkward pair at all. I love them! Please get married & have children! Palli! Palli! Unlike, Yoochun & Lee Da Hae in Miss Ripley. Damn AWKWARD. Both are noona to our dear Yoochun.
Below are my favorites supporting actor..the minions/the Crown Prince’s entourage:-
1st..the eldest and the strongest of the pack..Jung Suk Won. As Wong Yong Sul. I known him before as Baek Ji Young’s boyfriend. He just got that seriousness face ever that never failed to make me laugh.
2nd.. Do Chi San. The adorable eunuch. Played by Choi Woo Shik. I really like him. He is cute as button. I even followed him on twitter too.
3rd..the maknae, & the wise one, Song Man Bo. Played by Lee Min Ho. Yeah..the other Lee Min Ho, not that drop dead gorgeous Lee Min Ho. Still, he is cute. The scrubby kiddo from Sungkyunkwan Scandal Drama. This is his 2nd appearance in drama with Micky Yoochun.

As I am now learning Korean as my 3rd language, I learned a lot from this drama on how to talk & pronounced correctly words or phrases in Hanguk. Which I am so thankful for. Thank you to Crown Prince Lee Gak who speaks sangeuk. I love you for that.
Cracked me up whenever he tried to speak proper modern Korean language. Please..Yoochun..& the scriptwriter too, please (with cherry on top) sustain this good momentum. Do not ever make me bored with this drama.
I am rooting for you, Lee Gak. & the scriptwriter too.
Dae Han Min Geuk!!!! (not relevant with any of this, I just want to shout this)
My calculations of this drama for today before I end my post:-
Lee Gak + Pak Ha = Explosive Cuteness
Lee Gak + 3 Adorable Minions = Explosive Laughter
Lee Gak + Se Na = Never-Ending Puke
Se Na + Tae Mu = Match Made From Hell
Pyo Taek Su + Aunt Seol Hee = ?
That’s all. I love you guys!
Byeoooommmm!!! *aegyo explosiveness*
