Drama review: Rooftop Prince

I've just finished watching Rooftop Prince a couple days ago and what I can say is GREAT. I love how fate is playing with them and you cant guess what is happening till the end. Their romance is sweet in their own way. I think this is the first drama with time-slip-thing and then follow up with Queen In Hyun's Man and now Time Slip Dr. Jin. This is the probably Yoochun best dramas so far which I rank: Rooftop Prince > Sungkyunkwan Scandal > Miss Ripley. Han Ji Min is really cute and she suits Yoochun much. They make simple things become unique. Omurice (오무라이스) = omelet + rice. Besides this main lead, Yoochun's what-you-call-friends are also handsome and goodlooking. They are Joseon F4: Song Man Bo (Lee Min Ho), Do Chi San (Choi Woo Sik), and Woo Yong Sul (Jung Suk Won).

When Crown Prince Lee Gak is transported 300 years into the future to present day Seoul along with his three retainers, they believe that it is their duty to solve the murder case of the Crown Princess in order to return to Joseon.
They land in the rooftop apartment of Park Ha, a cheerful woman in her mid-20s, who eventually believes the odd quartet's predicament and becomes their guardian.
As Park Ha educates the four on life in the 21st century, Lee Gak comes across Hong Se Na, who seems to be the reincarnation of his wife.
Taking on the identity of Yong Tae Yong, Lee Gak slowly begins to unravel the murder of Yong Tae Yong and in turn moves closer to solving the murder case of the Crown Princess.
As he finds himself in love with Park Ha, he figures that maybe the Crown Princess was not so perfect after all...
