He’s played Prince Charming types before (the noble aristocrat in Sungkyunkwan Scandaland the chaebol in Miss Ripley), but now Park Yoochun is going to play an actual prince for Rooftop Prince, a new SBS drama to air in March.
The story sounds like a fantasy fusion piece, unfolding around a Joseon-era crown prince who loses his beloved princess. He and his trusty vassals skip forward 300 years into the 21st century. How that happens we don’t yet know, but that gives him the chance to meet a woman in Seoul bearing the same face as the dead princess. Insert joke here about how they all look alike?
No info yet on whether this will be a comedy or a melo (or, heck, a horror-action-thriller), but picturing a noble Joseon prince (basically Yoochun’s appearance in Sungkyunkwan, but even more regal) living in a tiny rooftop box of a room brings me an automatic chuckle. That’s prime comedy stuff, no? Forget how he’ll win the girl — how will he navigate the city? Figure out technology? Manage the newfangled bathrooms? If he’s literally time-jumping (rather than being reborn in a new life), then he’ll be a fish out of water, a nobody, a poor jobless dude. HEE. It’s like Vampire Idol meets Jeon Woo Chi meets Encino Man. Bring it on.
Quite a pedigree on the producers of Rooftop Prince: writing is Lee Hee-myung ofTomato, Success Story of a Bright Girl, and Bad Family, while directing is PD Shin Yoon-sub of KAIST, Love in Heaven, and Why Did You Come To Our House.

YAY, Prince JYJ’s Park Yoochun strikes again, and he’s such a superman, why does his drama always coincide with a World Tour!
Congrats Chunnie, another venue to showcase your talent and charisma.
We are so lucky fans that our artists are giving us a variety of activities, music, acting, and other random stuffs including the famous slash-slushy video, we’ll never get bored of them!
i was like not same time again while he was resting but see like is the way supposed to be. Hope he will stay healthy and show how handsome he is on drama
I know Yoochun is very fit to be a prince , and it’s always my dream he gonna be a true prince and MY DREAM COMES TRUE! Prince Yoochun!!! Oh my god, to see Chunnie in hanbok + as a crown prince *drooling in happiness*
I’m soooooooooooo excited! This drama looks interesting!! Wohoooo.. Yes prince Chunnie, I’m gonna watch it xD
*go to heaven*
I think you need a pail too! 😀
@gigi it will be better if he is mischievous wild prince rather than perfect prince
I hope he gonna be a clumsy and funny prince, just like he did in Tio. It will bring a new fresh aura of Chunnie <333
LOL, Chunnie as clumsy and funny prince, just like he did in Tio with a hint of a seductive mischivious Kiss Me … that ramyun CF, then all fangirling will flood JYJ3 in three month that the drama will be shown. Mac, come quickly….
I’ll take any kind of prince so far as he tickles my fanny bone in the drama. Wohoooo!
waiting list in march : Park Yuchun new drama+eng sub!!! XD
maybe its just me or somebody else thinking like me, but, they try really hard for fans because they have to work with their upcoming concert, their upcoming album (yaaii!!!) and their new drama and musical… but the happy side : they can choose everything they want!!! and be more–more experience and more–more fly to the sky!!!
I have the same feeling too.. The boys know that fans miss them already, so they tried their best to give what fans want.
Musical, drama, new album and world tour ..I just hope they won’t be worn out. JYJ fighting <333
yaaiii… youre rite. the “cant-appear-on-music-program-thing” is a “uuggghhhh” (cant describe in words)–that make our boys sooo in disadvantage situation..
but I really happy.. THEY CAN IMPROVE MORE OF THEIR TALENT!! aahh~~~ still happy fans…
JYJ—fighting!!! *I always support you!!*
yes TV appearence blocking is truly suck but their unique improvement is advantage
“we will try harder” they always say it and truly mean it but I am really worry for them. May be fans should hire a person to follow them and stuff them with food while they are doing superman
aahh~~~ maybe thats a good idea!! but…is it a stalker fans??? kekeke… dont mind me.. my imagination goes super fast to imagine that!! XD
then we should request stalker fans to change into stalker feeding in charge
*Raise my hands* I will volunteer for that job.. Its ok, u dont have to pay me.. FOC.. Choose me, PLEASE ZAN….
@Nandar ok u have follow him around and feed on time.if he lose wt ,we will come and get u
*jumping around excitedly in my room*
LOL.. be careful with the wall…jump with you!!^___^
So it’s confirmed right? right? Hurray!!!! So looking forward to march.
Me too ! Me too! Me too!
Is it confirmed?? I see a lot of news about it but till now they are still saying that “not confirmed yet” … It really pissed me off!!! Pls confirm, please..
MY God!!! I still cannot believe it.. Yoochun for crown prince!! How life gonna be more beautiful than this?! Oooh Chunnie, you’ll be a very smexy hot crown prince! 😀 😀 😀

How exciting? Loving it already.
Manse! Manse! Manse!
Looking forward to watch you in a drama again, PYC
JYJ is spoiling us rotten! And I’m loving it!
is this a historical drama?
This is where history meets modern-city.
wow! sounds fun.. i hope there will be no kissing scene… like MISS RIPLEY…
honestly .. i want a lot of kissing scene like PTB..
come on the guy looks like a kisser.. need to put that talent to a good use.. it’s not as if we’ll be able to get a chance to kiss him anyways.. an idea/reference of how hot he can kiss is what i want to see.. I have enough data for Jaejoong and Junsu.. I need a real one from the original ladies’ man squeee!
PTB..? wow.. when the 1st time i saw jaejoong kiss scene, i think he is really a good kisser..hahaha..
but yuchun.. yup, i like yuchun’s kiss scene with park min young.. my god! i cries like hell… i donno what happen to me if yuchun do the the kiss scene like jaejoong did in PTB.. i think im gonna crazy.. if there is a hot kiss scene, i hope yuchun will do with Kim Tae Hee.. hihi
I know it sounds funny, but I’m actually very glad that there’s no kissing scene in MR, haha.
But I’m also very glad that there are kissing scenes in SKKS, kkeke.
So my take is, depending on who’s the lead. I like PYC/PMY couple more than PYC/LDH couple, hihi^^
No kiss scene like PTB please
Kissing scene is fine, but I hope not the one like in ptb >.<
@gigikusakit yup.. i agree..and please i hope no bed scene too.. coz i’m going to imagine when he with me..LOL.. =p (bad gurl)
The storyline sounds cute and fun! Can’t wait to see Prince Yoochun ❤
yay!!! new drama for chunie
hmmm no female lead yet???
*praying hard for a lot of (and hot!) kiss scenes*
AMEN to the hot kiss scene!
Well, am I for or against? 😉 .. this very much depends on who’s the female lead, haha^^ seriously!
hoooray! so looking forward to this. i want a rom com but whatever it may be i’m happy that it’s Chunnie. ^^
sounds great 😀
I hope if YC accepts this role, Mon Chae Won will be the princess ^^
I dont know who she is and never watched her before .. So i googled her.. She is very pretty… I think i dont mind pairing her with chunie… 🙂
NO, sissy .. I prefer a new face, new face pleasssseeeee! Not that MCW is not pretty, but she looks too “familiar” which might not be good for the “chemistry department”, if you know what I mean, hhaha^^
Oh, she is not new??? LOL 😀 To me , she is new… 😛 never watched her dramas before… 😉 sorry, no offence..
No sistah, she’s not new. She’s the lead actress in the drama “The Princess’ Man” which was aired on KBS not long ago.
wow!! excitedly waiting for this drama! yoochun ❤ ❤ ❤
@bubbly. I agree with you that Moon Chae Won should not be the female lead. She has just just finished “The Princess Man” and won 3 awards including “Top Excellence” . So if she appears here, viewers will tend to compare with her last drama and this is not necessarily good for YC’s new drama.
I like YC’s chemistry wih Park Min Young in SKKS.They look a sweet couple. Not so much Lee Da Hae in Miss Ripley.
Honestly, I don’t mind PMY again.
I’m so glad somebody’s with me on this issue. I agree with every word you said here. You took the words right out of my mouth! 🙂
Moon Chae Won, her being in a very recent drama “The Princess Man” which happens to be quite popular amongst viewers, just WON’T help the new drama! People will tend to compare PYC/MCW couple to Park Shi Hoo/MCW couple because it’s still VERY fresh in viewers’ mind. Even in Ms Ripley, viewers tend to compare PYC/LDH couple to Lee Dong Wook/LDH couple (in My Girl, which was aired back in 2005 if I’ve not mistaken). Viewers just have the tendency to compare. If they can compare a current drama to a drama like 6 years ago? .. let alone to a drama that’s just being aired like less than 6 mths ago?
“So if she appears here, viewers will tend to compare with her last drama and this is not necessarily good for YC’s new drama.” ~~ BINGO!!!
“I like YC’s chemistry wih Park Min Young in SKKS.They look a sweet couple. Not so much Lee Da Hae in Miss Ripley.” ~~ again BINGO!!!. I’m with you, I don’t mind PMY again too. They are such a cute match!
Again, if there’s indeed such offer and should PYC accepts the offer .. I’m rooting for a new face for the lead actress, yes.
Looks like we have similar taste when it comes to dramas. Yes, I like Lee Da Hae in “My Girl” In 2005. I could be wrong but I had that feeling LDH tended to outshine YC in Miss Ripley whereas Park Min Young tried to blend in and work with YC in SKKS although he was a rookie and she was more experienced. I read from reports that PMY gave a lot of help to YC in SKKS but I am not sure why there was nothing mention about the rapport of the actors in Miss Ripley. If you watch the NGs of SKKS, you can see PMY taking care of YC in quite a few shots. It’s a shame they didn’t end up together. She acted in City Hunter , the drama after SKKS and ended up falling in love with the male lead Lee Min Ho instead..
I can’t overemphasise the importance of on screen chemistry. The Princess Man was so popular, due in part to the chemistry between Park Si Hoo and Moon Chae Won besides the powerful performances by the lead actor and actress.
So I really hope they get someone sweet and younger looking like KSE from Boys Over Flowers. I think someone here suggested her.
The story line looks so nice and pretty^^ Can’t wait to see Yoochun sign a contract and cast with in that drama.
I can imagine how all the cast will be very pretty
From the title itself,i believe this is definitely gonna be a romantic-comedy drama and Yoochun’s gonna portray a prideful( joseon princes’ usual character) yet clueless prince to the modern world that would appear to be a weird guy to every modern man and he,as the arrogant prince would later be force to live in the attic??. HAha i’m not sure but that would be a funny plot..YOOCHUN<3
@jin … “clueless prince” ~~ I would LOVE to see a clueless Yoochunnie, hihi^^
I can’t understand why MCW’s agent says it is more a sageuk when the story is about a Joseon prince in modern Korea.
the story reminded me of “Enchanted”, a disney movie in few years back… 🙂 anyhow, good luck yoochun for your new cast. we are looking forward…
