As the Crown Prince and his three trustees are running for their lives, they reach a cliff and have no option but to jump. They are however transported 300 years into the future where they find themselves in the rooftop home of Park Ha.
The Prince encounters the reincarnated parts of his dear ones in this period and realises that he has been sent there in order to find out who is responsible for the death of the Crown Princess. He himself has been reincarnated as Tae Yong and assumes his identity for the time being.
But fate has other plans.
The Crown Prince starts to grow fond of Park Ha, which is something that he is sure that he is not supposed to do as this will not help his chances of returning home.
COMMENTS: Before I started this drama, there were some criticisms about the it being boring and what not, but I’ve found this drama to be very enjoyable and hilarious.
I really like the female lead as well. Her attitude isn’t the whiny damsel-in-distress kind, so I really liked her.
But the trio who were transported along with the Prince are the bomb.
They are so cute together and the bromance that the four share is adorable.
I recommend this drama to all who want to feel pure hatred and loathing towards a character because that is exactly how I felt… towards the sister…and it was awesome 😉 Lol.
A/N: *****SPOILER*****READ AT OWN RISK*****
One thing that I really want to mention though is that Park Ha… is Bo Young!!!!
Annnnnnd ….. I hate the sister. Both in the Joseon and the modern period.
