I’ve finally finish watching
I’m delayed for about an hour compared to all of you
But I’ve just finished watching it [Rooftop Prince]
Earlier, I wrote I’ll support the three of them for 100 years, but
I’d be happy if I wrote I’ll support them for 300 years (⌒∇⌒)
Then, that’s all

Really experienced painful love through the role of Lee Gak
Since Yuchun debuted in the drama world in 2010 with ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’, every piece of work has left solid results, giving off a unique sense of presence as an actor. In the drama ‘Rooftop Prince’, the ease of acting from historical drama to comedy, mournful and moist eyes, cute look of surprise with big round eyes, and more, the 20-episode drama showed all of Yuchun’s charms at one go. And this work is by far the best interpretation of a role, bringing to everyone a fantasy-like realism. “I really experienced painful love, even the atmosphere during the shoot became strange,” Yuchun recalled those times.
Felt it was very interesting upon first reading of the script.
Q: When choosing a work, we heard that you will select it if the story attracts you when you first read the script. Is it the same for ‘Rooftop Prince’?
A: If I want to really compare, out of the 3 works that I have done to-date, ‘Rooftop Prince’ attracted me the most. When reading the script for Sungkyunkwan Scandal, there were 4 episodes, ‘Miss Ripley’ was also about the same, ‘Rooftop Prince’ had only 2 episodes of script, but I decided I have to act in it after reading these 2 episodes.
Q: Which parts did you especially like?
A: Time travel and one person acting 2 roles were great, and the role of Lee Gak was very attractive. In the 1st episode, he is a very dignified Crown Prince (first in line to the throne), but when he came to 21st century Seoul, that stance completely collapsed, this is what I really liked. And on the script, it was written that it will not be a simple comedy ending, so I decided to take it on.
Q: From the first broadcast, it was evaluated as a very interesting drama, did you expect that?
A: When I first read the script, I already felt that it was very interesting and it would be very popular. But when practising, I started to feel it would be bad if I was the only one who thought it was interesting. There is a big difference between the script and the image, isn’t it? Not only me, the director and the 3 servants also worried over this. So when Lee Gak time traveled from Joseon period to 21st century Seoul, I was careful not to look too exaggerated. As much as I could, I acted serious and so viewers felt it was interesting. Even in a funny situation, Lee Gak has a serious look on his face, so I think that made viewers laugh.
