TV Review: Rooftop Prince (2012) (Rom-Com)

Rooftop Prince (옥탑방 왕세자)
16 episodes
Park Yu-chun, Han Ji-min, Lee Tae-sung

A crown prince is transported 300 years into the future, where he assumes a new identity to be near a woman who resembles his late wife. (Synopsis)

Rooftop Prince was an entertaining rom-com. The time travel element naturally allowed for a lot of humour as the crown prince and his companions adjusted to the modern world. Plus there was the interest in discovering what had happened to the crown princess back in Joseon and what had happened to the prince's reincarnation/counterpart in the modern world. The romance developed slowly and believably and both main actors gave good performances. At ten years old it feels a little dated here and there, but it's still really good fun and worth a watch if you are looking for something that's mostly lighthearted but also has an emotional punch or two along the way. It gets 4.5 stars from me.
