bonjour ~ I'm just going to share quick review about a korean drama named "Rooftop Prince". this movie is hilarious. recommended. although in the beginning it's quite complicated but then it's addicted. lol

Rooftop Prince (Hangul : 옥탑방 왕세자) is a 2012 SBS television series.

Lee Gak, the crown prince of Joseon dynasty is investigating the death of the crown princess, Hwa Yong when he and his entourage Song Man-bo, Woo Yong-soo, and Do Chi-san are mysteriously teleported 300 years into the future. They appear on the rooftop home of Park-Ha , a hard working young woman living in modern day Seoul, who also resembles his sister-in law Bu Yong from the Joseon era. The four undergo a hilarious transformation, adapting to the modern culture under the strict mentoring of Park-Ha. Lee Gak decides to co-operate with Park-Ha so that he can solve the mystery behind the murder of the crown princess.
The reincarnation of Lee Gak, Tae-Yong, the rich heir to a multimillion dollar company, is accidentally thrown overboard from his private cruise in New York and is left for dead by his cousin Tae-mu.  Tae-mu returns to Seoul and schemes with his father Yong Dong Man to inherit all of Tae-Yong's riches. He has a secret affair with the company's secretary Se-Na, who happens to be the step-sister of Park-Ha. Se-Na dislikes Park-Ha and always gets her in trouble. Lee Gak encounters Se-Na, who is the spitting image of his dead wife and tries to get her attention.
President Yeo of the Company, mistakes Lee Gak for her grandson Tae Yong and believes that her long lost grandson had finally returned. In order to befriend Se-Na, Lee Gak starts pretending to be Tae-Yong. Se-Na initially discourages Lee Gak’s advances but soon accepts his friendship after her break-up with Tae-mu. Se-Na believes that Park-ha is behind her break-up with Tae-mu and vows to steal everything that Park-ha holds valuable. Before long, Park-ha realizes that she is in love with Lee Gak, and is saddened when he and Se-Na gets engaged. To complicate matters Lee Gak starts developing feelings for Park-Ha and soon breaks up his engagement with Se-na.
Tae-mu, convinced that his cousin is dead, tries to sabotage the Lee Gak's campaign to become the Company's next CEO. However, under the guidance of Director Pyo Taek Soo, Lee Gak and his faithful friends prove themselves capable of running the business. Tae-mu finds out that the real Tae-Yong is alive but in a coma, at a hospital, in Chicago. He tries to frame Lee Gak as a cheat who is after President Yeo’s money. But his plan backfires when Lee Gak switch places with Tae Yong and acts as though Tae Yong has recovered from coma.  
Meanwhile it is revealed that Se-Na and Park-Ha are both daughters of President Jang and are thus entitled to inherit half of the Company’s shares. This gives a clue to Lee Gak as to how their lives have been entwined spanning centuries. His suspicions are confirmed when he finds evidences suggesting that Tae-Mu was behind Tae-Yong's "accident". Se-Na joins forces with Tae-Mu to ruin Park-Ha and get rid of Lee Gak. When she tries to steal Lee Gak's evidences, she accidentally sends President Yeo to her death down a flight of stairs. Lee Gak swears vengeance after discovering Tae-Mu's treachery. Tae-Mu kidnaps Park-Ha and threatens to kill her. Lee Gak is forced to give up his fight in exchange of Park-Ha’s life. Park-Ha learns the truth about their biological mother and is hurt by Se-Na's betrayal. 
Evidences keep mounting against Tae-Mu and in a final ditch effort to save himself Tae-Mu tries to kill Lee Gak with the help of Se-Na. But Park Ha throws herself in front of his car and is seriously injured. Lee Gak realizes the significance of Park Ha’s love and how it has affected his past and the present. He convinces Se-Na to save Park-Ha’s life by donating part of her liver and make amends for all her mistakes. Tae-Mu tries to flee the country on a cargo ship but is captured by the police after a final confrontation with Lee Gak. 
Once all the truth is revealed the crown prince Lee Gak and his loyal courtesans are teleported back to the Joseon era. However before disappearing Lee Gak and Park-Ha swear their eternal love for each other and get married in a private rooftop ceremony. Back in the Joseon era, the Prince exposes the plot of the Crown princess’s father and General Moo Chang (Lee Gak’s illegitimate brother/ Tae-Moo in his previous birth) to poison him and sentences them to death. It turns out that Bu-Yong has sacrificed herself in order to save her family’s honor as well as the Crown Prince’s life. The drama ends in the current era, where a recuperated Tae-Yong embraces Park-Ha and consummates their long last love. The image of Tae-Yong then transforms into Lee Gak, perhaps symbolising that their love is continued by the reincarnation of Lee Gak.
