allkpop TV Guide: Rooftop Prince Ep. 13-14

Official Synopsis: A prince from the Chosun era, Yi Gak (JYJ‘s Yoochun), along with his entourage, which includes Song Man Bo (Lee Min Ho), Do Chi San (Choi Woo Shik) and Woo Young Sul (Jung Seok Won), are catapulted 300 years into the future. As he attempts to investigate the suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of the princess he loved, he unexpectedly finds himself in the city of Seoul in the year 2012, where he comes across a woman who looks exactly like his beloved crown princess…

Ratings: KBSs Equator Man was still able to keep its first place position, while SBSs Rooftop Prince and MBCs King 2 Hearts battled for second place. While Equator Man maintained its strong ratings with a 14.7% and 13.9%. Meanwhile, Rooftop Prince and King 2 Hearts have been switching positions with King 2 Hearts achieving second place with a 11.3% rating (Rooftop Prince: 10.2%), but lost its position on Thursday with Rooftop Prince earning an 11.6% rating (King 2 Hearts: 11.1%). As all the ratings are very close, the first place position is still left to speculation.

Recap of Ep. 13: Although Yi Gak and Park Ha (Han Ji Min) finally acknowledge their romantic feelings for each other, the short time they have with each other is only underlined when the boys images begin flickering. Meanwhile, Tae Mu (Lee Tae Sung) hears news of the real Tae Young in Chicago, which is confirmed later when he sees the actual Tae Young in a coma in a hospital.

Park Ha still decides to leave with her luggage packed, urging Yi Gak to follow through the engagement. She decides to take up a tourist job, far from Seoul, while Yi Gak finds an apartment for her. Meanwhile, Tae Mu urges Se Na (Jung Yumi) to send Park Ha to New York with a plane ticket, to help accelerate his plans for Se Na to take over Chairman Jangs stocks.

Se Na meets up with Chi San, who has an envelope for Park Ha with the apartment contracts from Yi Gak. Se Na switches the apartment contract papers with the airplane ticket in the envelope. Park Ha receives the plane ticket and assumes the worst as she believes that Yi Gak is sending her away.

With a time skip, Yi Gak visits Jinan for a business trip, coincidentally having Park Ha as his tour guide. Their time together tense, Yi Gak begins to have suspicions about the envelope that he had sent to Park Ha. Learning about Chi Sans meeting with Se Na, he meets up with Se Na who lies her way through the situation by saying that Chi San and her had accidentally switched envelopes. The pieces dont fit for Yi Gak though he realizes that the envelopes are stamped, cracking his trust in Se Nas kind facade.

Recap of Ep. 14: Se Na squeezes herself through a loophole as she complains that Grandmother was the one who had planted Park Has plane ticket. Although Yi Gak seems to believe her, he follows her discreetly to Grandmothers house, where Se Na enlists Grandmothers support as Grandmother agrees to cover up for Se Na. Later, Yi Gak also realizes that Se Na and Park Ha were sisters as Se Na visits her mother.

Shocked at the deceitful Se Na, Yi Gak begins to wonder what to do next as he speculates that the Hwa Young he had known in the Joseon era might also not be kind as he had thought she was.

The engagement is canceled, and Park Ha is brought into the picture by the boys. Tae Mu also begins his plan to take Chairman Jangs shares as he asks Se Na to bring in Park Has hair strands for forged DNA. Se Na  poses as Park Ha, the lost daughter Chairman Jang has no trace of, and the Chairman actually signs off her inheritance to Se Na. While Chairman Jang knows that Se Na is trying to fool her, she begins to doubt herself as Se Na brings in Park Has past as her own.

Meanwhile, while Yi Gak and Park Ha are enjoying doing laundry together, Yi Gak begins to put the puzzle pieces together that Park Ha is Bu Young, helped by the fluttering white sheets covering Park Has lower face.

kdramacrazy’s Thoughts:

[Note : This post reflects the opinions of the author, and not necessarily those of allkpop.]

In the midst of throwing confetti in the air for having Yi Gak finally realize the [wench] that Se Na is, I was back again at square one with her new revenge plans and methods to ruin Park Has life. The whole Chairman Jang-is-my-mother-no-shes-mine arc seems like an unnecessary addendum and only drags down the plot. When the drama focuses too much on the makjang elements with the long lost mothers and sisters being evil, it loses the comedic or fantasy element of the plot, in addition to not being fully cohesive and sewn in with the main plot of the time travel. While the rest of the plots of Yi Gak piecing together the time travel and murder mystery, the funny moments between the three boys, and even Tae Mus discovery of Tae Young, make the moments enjoyable and tense, when they just capitulate the evilness of Se Na it only makes me want to punch something.

However, I do love how finally Park Ha and Tae Young finally admit their feelings for each other, although I do feel the time skip and Park Has escape was unnecessary. I thought episodes 11 and 12 had done that plot justice with Se Nas engagement, but after the kiss, it was back to the original spot. But, I know Ive gotta enjoy this moment because we all know were going back to the melodrama once the dilemma of returning to the Joseon era creeps up. And thank you writers for giving us a smart hero! For finally piecing together the pieces and yelling at Se Na.
