Rooftop Prince E8

How is it possible for a drama to be so good that it hurts. I think this is the first one to have such a packed episode each and every time. So much happened today that it goes at the speed of light. I love how we never have a moment to think and just keep swooning along with H. Even if the next two episodes are slower, this one makes up for everything. I actually wrote the words “omg – LOL” in the middle of the recap cuz I was ROFL. So many screencaps to choose from. I think I fell in love with this drama all over again tonight. 🙂

Thanks to Semi-fly and her fast torrents, I got a little trigger happy with the lovey dovey scenes.

Whether it’s Joseon or 2012, you can’t take the boy out of the man. This is him faking another attack so she will give him more mouth to mouth – doesn’t he get that he doesn’t need to go to such lengths. Just ask already – bet she is willing at this point. I about died during this scene from laughing so hard. Could he be more adorable?  🙂

Starts from the guys and H going to their new home. She says daebak and the 3 guys clap like crazy and M says let’s take pics to remember this by. H: me too. M was going to do a selca but he asks G take the pic. M: make sure the whole house comes out. H: take it big. G: will take the pic at the count of 3. he didnt count and just clicked when no one was ready. H: what is that. do it again.  Then C takes their pic. G asks if they like the house. H: it’s totally gorgeous. Y: it is really impressive. G says then let’s go to the supermarket to grocery shop.

H lists the stuff they need to buy and other 3 load the cart with them- green onions, carrots, spinach, mushrooms, lettuce, but G just got lots of yogurt drinks. The 3 guys taste the free samples.  G gives his credit card to pay for it all at one time instead of splitting up payments.

Y, C, and M look at a box of sugar cubes and C asks: wont it be nice if we chew and eat this. M reads that it’s “gak” (cubed) sugar so they look over at G cuz that’s his name and Y says let’s put some in the basket.

G sees something about lotus flowers and remembers how it’s H’s name bu yong. H comes over and looks at the fish -she says they are pretty and points to one saying it looks exactly like you – it looks funny. he looks too and points to each one saying it looks like Y, C, and M. she says it really does look like them. she waits for him to point to one fish that looks like her but he picks up a seed and says this is like you. he buys it and she asks if they can deliver the fish.

Chairman is with the aunt. Chairman asks if S went all the way to chongno to buy her rice cakes. S says I had to go there anyway for work. aunt says the chairman chose a great secretary – that S is better than a daughter. S: TY moves today so should I prepare something. chairman: they will have prepared on their own. aunt says should we go look at TY’s rooftop home today? S: if it’s ok with you should I prepare a simple housewarming party. T comes and says prepare the crab dish TY likes. chairman agrees and says our TY would wake up from his sleep if it’s crabs. Aunt offers to pick it up with S cuz she knows a place that makes it well. chairman compliments T for thinking of that.

T and G are playing squash. G: you said you were going to teach me so how could you hit this hard. T: a person can lose the memory in his head but he cant lose the memory his body holds. I never beat you at squash. I never once believed you were TY.

at the rooftop home, H cooks some food and S serves chairman, aunt, and T’s dad. S says how TY is late and aunt says how he went to work out with T. they should be here soon.  S: should I get you some beer? aunt is happy and says yes.  if only I had a son (to match S up with)  T’s dad clears his throat displeased.

T and G show up. T’s dad: elders are waiting so you should have come earlier.  T says sorry. you prepared a lot. S asks the chairman: should we start eating. Chairman says yes and invites G to sit next to her. T’s dad tells him to sit next to him. S brings in the crab. aunt says you are surprised aren’t you TY -it’s the crab you like. aunt invites S to sit and says you worked so hard today. Chairman tells G to eat a lot since it’s been a long time since he has had this. G stares at the crab.  T’s dad thinks G is waiting cuz elders haven’t eaten yet. H looks over and remembers how G cant eat crabs -how he almost died eating it. T offers some to G saying you like this so you should eat. G starts to reach for it and eats some. He says how it tastes good and he will eat it well. He keeps eating and H looks worried.

H comes out of the clinic with G. he got a shot so now he feels better. He says how effective that one shot was cuz he can breathe more comfortably and now he feels fine. if this was Joseon I would have died… he stops talking and says “let’s hurry and go home since guests are waiting.” She stares at him accusingly so he asks why are you like that. H: what is your plan/objective. You aren’t TY. Who are you?

T’s dad: what is he doing inviting elders for the housewarming and doing this. he shouldnt be doing this. aunt: did TY go somewhere with H? S: I think so aunt cuz awhile ago I saw them at the stairs together after we ate and I came back in but after that I didnt see them. chairman asks what the others are going to do. S offers to stay and clean up.

H and G are walking and she asks why he lied. Why did you deceive me. G: what would I deceive you about? H: that is what I want to ask. Whatever you said I just trusted you. from the start when you said you came from joseon I believed it. next when you said you were TY -the chairman’s grandson- I thought “ah so that is the truth” and believed you again. but now you are the prince from joseon again. after doing that you will say that you are TY again.  From now on I cant believe you anymore.

H goes up the stairs and crosses on the walkway above the street but G crosses the street and almost gets killed cuz he did it on purpose without looking. on the other side, she cries and asks if he is crazy cuz he could have died. G: now do you believe me? She kicks him and says don’t do this again. Say it with words cuz I will believe you.

S is doing dishes and T back hugs her and asks if she is still angry. She pushes him away and says I am not angry. He says this is the first time you did this to me. you never did this before. S: are you saying it’s my fault for changing my behavior. He says my father will acknowledge our relationship soon so wait a little bit. don’t do this to me. She says I will change if you change. T: i just need to do better right? ok. I wont disappoint you

H says to G: you could have died from not being able to breathe -you knew that and ate the crab. Is it more important than your life to pretend to be TY. G: it is that important. H: why? do you need that family’s money? or do you need access? you dont. G: that’s right – why would I need the money or access. H: but that family is happy thinking that the real TY came back. what are you going to do about that. G: I am going to pretend to be TY and do everything. H: why are you putting your life on the line to pretend to be TY. G: it’s the reason why I came from joseon. H: the reason why you came here from joseon? G: for the sake of meeting someone.  She asks person? who is that.  G: you are from here so you only need to know this much. but I will never lie to you.

G says a while ago I couldn’t breathe and wasnt focusing so I cant remember well but didnt you help me breathe? H: yes. G: how did you do it? H: I gave you mouth to mouth. G: how do you do that? H: put my mouth to yours and blow air in. [ It’s like a lightbulb goes off in his head. ] He suddenly pretends to be unable to breathe. H: what’s wrong. is your throat closing up again? should we go to the hospital? G: I need mouth-to-mouth. He opens one eye to peek at her reaction. She hits him repeatedly and says you are going to die. how can you kid. you scared me so much. G pretends again he cant breathe so she hits his mouth and says “dont breathe.” H: when I think about how much you scared me awhile ago, I could die from resentment. G teases: you were for sure a general in a former life. H: what?! A general! She hits him some more. S watches them being friendly with each other

She points to G without looking. G smiles pleased and says something like she needs to obey. G says to them- it’s late so let’s rest. the 3 say yes to him. C tells her to make warm omurice tm morning for breakfast and prepare plenty of ketchup. Y tells her to sleep comfortably.

Pyo meets with G. Pyo: you want to know about yourself? G: yes. right up to when I was missing I want to know what condition I was in. pyo: how can you trust me? G: cuz grandmother trusts you. Pyo: before you got into the accident in america, I am pretty sure you met up with T. G: I met T hyung in america? Pyo: even though T met you in NY, he has been lying until now. G remembers how T said I never once believed you were TY. Pyo: I dont know yet what the connection is between T lying and your disappearance, but what is certain is you have to be careful of T. either he knows something for sure or he did something to you himself. G remembers how T tried to feed G that crab

Pyo and G run into T and his dad. pyo speaks down to his dad and says how the dad is gaining weight the more he sees him. so his dad gets mad at pyo saying dont you know who is your superior – how dare you speak banmal (informally). Pyo calls him names and says why are you like this. did you get to your position through your abilities. T’s dad tells TY not to hang out with Pyo. Pyo tells him to be quiet. Pyo says to T: you take after your father and you arent giving me pleasant looks. T says to G: you are having a hard time huh. G: aren’t you having a harder time hyung. T: what does that mean. G: You know very well what we both mean. They glare at each other and pyo calls TY’s name and T’s dad call his son away. let’s go. Pyo calls the dad crazy.  Pyo asks if G was too bold suddenly. G says he only said that for the heck of it but T reacted to it.

chairman asks if T’s dad has something to reveal. he says yes but T tries to stop him but his dad tells the chairman how T is going on a blind date tm. aunt: really? that suddenly? chairman asks who the person is that T is going on the date with. his dad says some person high up’s 3rd daughter. Chairman: i see.  since we are already talking about this. she asks S to sit down for a minute. she asks if S is dating anyone now. His dad says to S: you dont have any guy you are dating now right? she only works every day so how could she have one. S: I am not dating anyone. T’s dad: of course. Chairman asks her what do you think of our TY. aunt says she thought that same thing that S looks good with TY. how could we have the same idea. they are perfect for each other. chairman says while you were showing TY around – you met him outside of work a few times didnt you. S: yes chairman. aunt: so how was it? aunt asks if S was interested in TY or not. chairman tells S to do well with TY. T’s dad says how his son is going to meet his blind date at at hotel at 5pm tm. chairman asks S for an answer. S says what answer can I give you. aunt says that means S doesn’t dislike TY and chairman says she will push for it so do well (with TY) T looks upset watching S smile.

* this makes no sense to me that the chairman would set up her secretary with her grandson. shouldnt his grandmother aim a little higher like T’s dad. but then again this is the same grandmother who is allowing her grandson to live with 3 other guys and a girl in the same home that she built for them. cant tell if she is a progressive grandmother or clueless

She asks isnt 5pm tm the time you are on the blind date at the hotel. he says yes that’s right. I reserved it for that time on purpose. you will know my heart when you see which place I go to tm.

H asks why you did you buy so much mother. the mom says you are living with boarders so you have to save on side dishes.  When she goes in the mom is startled to see the 4 guys standing there. she asks if these young guys are the boarders. H tells them -what are you doing- say hello- she is my mother. 3 of them bow and says hello. it’s the first time meeting you.  but G doesn’t. H gives him a look to say something so G just tells the mom to rest well and then go. He goes upstairs with the guys. the mom says I am thirsty so give me some water.

H: me? the mom says yes. you need to stop suffering alone and meet a good man, get married, have kids, and live with the guy as a family.  The guys repeat the words. G says marriage? Y says kids? C says husband? M says family? the mom says the guy’s father saw H a few times at the market and he chose her. he asked how about you meeting his son.  H tries to say she doesn’t want to yet  but the mom says be quiet. she says he is a teacher at an elementary school. you have to go no matter what. I already made the appointment for you so prepare. H: what? you already set it up? the mom says then should I have lost that chance. she compliments the rooftop home saying it’s so luxurious. the owner’s taste is unique. She sees the guys and asks H why are those young guys hanging around. H motions for them to go inside but G mouths back: what? this is my home. they don’t move. Y looks the most upset about her date so C points to M to look at Y

M asks why Y is sitting there. let’s go out.  but Y says I want to rest today. you two go. M: there are times when you want to rest? dont pout and come on and let’s go.  Y yells where is there a law that I cant be in pain. C jokes does your heart hurt here. is it love sickness?

He takes out his yogurt drink and asks : do you think you will meet a good guy. H: mother said he was a good guy so I should look forward to it. G: if you go on a blind date and like him, does it mean you get married.  H: after the date, if it goes quickly they say people get married within a month. G: then it will be good if it’s a good person.  She says she will pray a good guy shows up. G slurps his drink and crushes the plastic bottle in anger

He looks at her outfit and asks if she is going to the market to buy groceries now. buy a lot of sweet things. She asks if she looks like she is going to the market. G: werent you going grocery shopping? then were you going on your blind date looking like that. H: why? it’s clothes I saved away cuz it was special – it’s just cuz it’s the first time you saw these clothes. when i looked in the mirror it was pretty. he asks if she intends to shame her mother. how she has to look pretty for the guy. she says I will take care of it on my own so stop paying any attention. But he says as someone who lives in the same home I cant stand by and watch you be embarrassed and looked down on .

G grips the steering wheel nervously and she starts the engine. She tells him to take his feet off the brake slowly. He is driving on a school yard going like ten miles an hour. H: are we crawling along. step on the accelerator more. It would be faster to walk. Red light. So he brakes hard. She yells at him- I told you to step on it softly.  what is it – are you dumb. G says in a minute he is going to make her take her words back. She says look straight ahead. G: yes. H: go again.  Make a left. Turn the signal lights on. he turns on window wipers. H sighs. G: I did that on purpose cuz I cant see the front well. she says now parking – first reverse.  The car suddenly stalls and he asks why isnt this going. she makes a snarky comment that it’s on park/neutral.  it’s so frustrating I think I will go crazy. so he yells at her did you know how to drive from birth. She says you cant drive if you lose your temper. She says reverse. so he tries to park between two cars, but it’s hopeless. H: do you think you can park within today? should I go eat and come back? He says I will stop learning how to drive if I have to go through this. she says that’s good. Get out. He does and she parks the car easily.

He says if you were living in joseon do you think you would be able to ride horses right away when you’ve never ridden. H: horses? all you have to do is get on, put your butt on it, and just sit and the horse will know where to go on its own. if you yell “yeee” then it will go and when you say “whoah” it will stop.

G: didnt you say it would go if you say “yeee.” He makes the horse move so it scares her. she screams. G: you said it was easy. H: great for you. G tells the horse: you are a horse and I am a person and you are going to give me a ride. he tells her to sit comfortably. if you keep trembling if you were the horse would you like it? since you have this chance, dont be afraid and learn well.” He gets on back and they take off outside.

G: you have to answer. H: do I have to answer what you ask?  He says “answer when I ask.” She says no so he asks are you resisting/refusing to answer. H: yes. He makes the horse gallop to scare her more

H: I will be more careful. chairman: to be honest I dont like TY telling me to leave him alone. I dont like him living outside at the rooftop home but since TY was in an accident and cant remember so I am letting him live there in order for him to regain his memory. H: I know that well.  She asks if anything else is going on. are you dating TY. H: no I am not.

M and G are together at a café. M is showing him with a video game how to play squash. how to hit like this and that. the buzzer for letting you know your drink is ready buzzes so M says I will go and get the coffee. G says this is more important -rewind it and let’s watch it again. M says this keeps going off. G: just turn it off. M explains I cant turn this off. you have to give this buzzer back to that person or else it wont stop buzzing. G: you have to take it back to the one that’s calling for it. M: yes. G: give me that

She puts it down and says if you make this buzz one more time, I will turn your head. do you want your head to vibrate? he says she is coming on too threatening again. H: I am saying this clearly. At the office don’t act like you  know me. She leaves. He yells you have to take this with you. if you aren’t going to listen to me then you must move out

Chairman asks S to take TY’s sketchbooks of drawings he drew a long time ago. S: yes chairman. chairman says: I am not just asking you to go and give it to him. take this and look at it with him and talk. cuz he might remember his past when he sees this. maid comes over with some food. chairman tells S to take some side dishes TY likes. S: i will go and come back.

S goes to the rooftop home.

G is practicing squash.

S looks at TY’s sketches. She sees a drawing of the statue of liberty and the initials E.O. on it just like on H’s sketch with the butterfly. So S goes to H’s room to verify that and sees the same initials.

H comes home and S is in her room. H: what are you doing in someone else’s room. S: Why – is there something you cant be caught with. H: what are you doing in someone else’s room. S: you are more impudent the more I see you. H: dont say strange things and leave my room. S: should I tell you who is more strange. H says talking with you is tiring so leave. S: since when did you know TY. H: what? S: the chairman’s grandson TY -you knew it was him from the start. Pretending to not know him acting like you are nice helping someone who lost his memory. so you could get plenty of compensation. H: are you crazy. have you lost your mind. dont talk anymore nonsense and leave. leave my room. S says then you shouldn’t have impudently left this sketch out. she throws his book on the ground saying – this is  TY’s sketchbook. if you see the intials on the drawing then you cant say anything else. H looks at it and is shocked. S: why? do you feel indignant cuz you got caught in the middle of it? also cuz you were caught by me – does it upset you? the signature on Ty’s sketchbook and the signature on the drawing of you that you have -you cant say they are different can you? why? tell me it’s not true.

They hear chairman asking where is H. H goes out to meet her. the aunt and chairman are there. chairman asks where the drawing is. S gives her the sketch. Chairman: it really is what TY drew. aunt: this is your face park ha. it really is true.  chairman asks asks H: where and when did you get this picture. H: I got it 2 yrs ago in america. chairman asks : you knew he was TY two years ago and said you didn’t know. H: I dont know who gave that sketch. aunt: does that make sense. then who drew your face. of course the person who drew it gave it to you. H: it’s really true – I dont know. Chairman: even with that, you said you didnt know who TY was and rescued him at your rooftop home. you made his family suffer for two years and make TY suffer when he didnt know how to find his way home. H: it’s really true – I didnt know anything. Chairman slaps her and says “you awful girl.” S smirks.

H lost his handkerchief so G yells at her. how many times did I tell you that it’s the only one in this world. how many time?! H: all I have to do is find it. H digs through a huge pile of recycled clothes to look for it.

G kneels and says I like her – I like park Ha.

T says that Jang is about to give all her shares of the company to her daughter

S says to H: you are something else.

T’s dad tells S to quit

S tells G: I hid one product item.

G shows S the handkerchief with the butterfly and asks: doesn’t it look like you’ve seen the handkerchief with the butterfly somewhere before.

T says to someone ( maybe S): dont pay any attention to that guy – he isnt TY. I will reveal that guy’s objective (goal)

S asks H: what is your proof? what proof do you know

G tries to check the message H sent him but she says you cant and takes it away from him

Fanderay’s comments

It absolutely kills me that we didn’t get to see what H read in that book. Why are you so cruel, Show? I wonder if it’s one of those things that will remain a mystery until the last episode, or if G will think to check the history books himself. I also wonder if G has the ability to change that history when he goes back.  In a way, I don’t want him to go back. Wouldn’t it be nice if that book said that G just disappeared after his wife’s death? Besides all the potential butterfly effects of a return to the past, I just love all the relationships that are forming in modern times. It’s not just G and H, but also M and Mimi, and even Y and H (his one-sided crush is oh-so-cute). The only issue is that I don’t want to see H’s counterpart in the past end up alone either, but both girls can’t have G! Can’t the real TY just get booted to the past? It’s a whole other spin-off drama in the making!

At any rate, since this a comedy I have my fingers crossed for a happy ending, and I don’t care if they have to bend the laws of space and time to give it to us. Despite this drama’s light-hearted side, I’m finding myself very attached to the characters, and I have no doubt that I’ll shed buckets of tears if I have to watch everyone part (I better get my buckets ready).

T and S were in fine form this week, wreaking havoc on the lives of their nemeses. I’m not sure how much more screen time we’ll get of life in the past, but I wonder if T existed in that time too. Is it possible that he was involved with the murder? Since this drama opened with that scene, it would be strange if that whole scenario never got solved. It’s hard to believe that there are enough episodes to sort out the present and the past, but this show crams so much into every episode that it might just be possible.

Despite all the big events that are always happening, I love that we’re never denied all the amusing little moments that keep us smiling, like M playing Go Stop, the boys staring down H’s date (he looks way better than he did in Moon/Sun, don’t you think?), and H’s makeover (finally!). I was seriously annoyed when I saw G “driving” (I couldn’t believe that he just magically knew how) so it was all the funnier when I saw that he was towed. I always like watching learning-to-drive scenes because they always seem so true to life. Has anyone learned to drive and had it go 100% peacefully?

When H wondered about G’s reasons for being in the present, I was surprised to realize that she doesn’t know about his princess. He ranted so much about her in the first episodes that I just assumed that H knew about it all. I’m sure she could get the truth out Y in a heartbeat if she wanted to (so hopefully she wants to!).

Luckily, however, it seems like G’s denial should come to an end soon. He’s clearly head over heals for H, and after breaking off her date and questioning her about her type during some romantic horseback riding, the truth should be fairly obvious even to someone as emotionally clueless as him. It was fun watching him struggle with his feelings for H, but I think it will be even more interesting watching what he does once he’s aware of those feelings. Just how deep is his loyalty for S?

However deep, I’m guessing that any loyalty will start to disintegrate the second G sees S being cruel towards H. She doesn’t seem like the type to get caught in front of him though, and it seems like the two of them are about to be shoved together by the family. How ironic is it that S wasn’t good enough for T, but she’s good enough for TY?

Tomorrow should be very interesting (as usual) and I imagine that two episodes will fly by almost as quickly as one.

    In the preview to the 9th episode, the three stooges look like children. It’s as if, H is the mom, G the dad and they are the children. They feel and look frightened because “dad” is upset and is yelling at “mom.” They indeed have become a family, a non biological one, but a family nonetheless tied to one another. The preview to episode 9 looks great!
    They must be having a lot of fun filming!


  2. ck1Oz says:

    Thanks I came back for the recap. I was watching it raw and was in absolute fits.
    Oh man the car scene was daebak. I swear all I was doing was idly wondering ‘ did I miss the driving lessons part of the drama?” Then wham, saw the car being towed. I died laughed so much that I was too loud.
    This show keeps surprising me. Thank you for the recap. Make sure you get enough sleep now. It’s going to be a long night tomorrow.


  3. m86680 says:

    Thanks so much to Softy. I couldn’t really watch the drama and it’s great to have your recap!

    I think PH cries because she realizes that LG is looking for his wife and it is quite obvious that she is not the one.

    With Grandma’s warning, LG’s yeahing, his forever attention to SN, I think PH will not express her feelings to LG. May be she will have to suffer for another 2~3 eps.

    If SN is showing the postcard which TY drew 2 years ago, TM will notice that something is going on. I wonder when SN will also take away the photo from PH and announces that she is Chairman Jang’s missing daughter.


  4. wanzhaf says:

    Aigoo grandma, why dont you listen to Park Ha’s explanation before you hit her? At the least you will know TY’s last movement before he disappeared.
    And you prince! how ungrateful that you are you boasting that the rooftop is your house now? Tsk.. tsk.. tsk.. Though i miss the J3… they have so little scene. Can we skip the sena and Temu part and concentrate the storyline on J5 instead?
    Cant wait for tomorrow. Wow, 2 episode.LOL.


  5. jennlo says:

    softy… it is so cute tat u put the three pic of kisses on top of ur post… look like u keep on watching the part or the pics all over n over again…n can imagine u keep on hafing some illusion n giggling behind… lolz…


  6. Ivoire says:

    So funny that the first caption is the “mouth to mouth” and we get 3 pictures, all shots, all angles, including a close one :-). Softy, you sneaky you!!!!


  7. nonski says:

    softy love love your screencaps 🙂


  8. deedee810 says:

    Se Na cant say that she is the missing daughter that CEO Jang is looking for 1. Se Na would have recognize herself in that picture. 2. CEO Jang knows that Se Na is her daughter and not the daughter that is missing so that would not work, but if Se Na tries that she will get caught. 3. Everyone will know that she has been lying all this time about her mother being in England. RTP does not have any dull moments……at all


    • chunyenz says:

      @deedee801 Ahhh you really right, if Sena admit that CEO Jang is her Mother than everybody will know that she was lied about her mother being in England, so she can’t do that trick to manipulate TM. But I don’t think she has to manipulate TM anymore coz now she has backup from Grandma to be TY’s wife, so I think she will leave TM completely and after TY now. And it seems that Grandma hate H as she think H already manipulate and lied to her about when the first time she met TY. That’s really good for Sena, but I hope TY can make right decision, coz in preview it looks like he admit that he likes H but he still look confuse.
      Can’t wait for tonight….

    thank you!

    waiting for 2 episodes tm.

    yay thank you such great recap! seriously Se-na is just so . . . sheesh!


  13. Maidenelle says:

    Thanks, Softy! Doesn’t Mickey look like JW, particularly in the first photo? Many times when I see pictures of him in the recaps, I feel like I am experiencing JW overload between those pics, the headers from Ojakgyo, and the shots from 1n2d!


  14. Hikary25 says:

    Thanks so much for the recap!! I was so furious when Halmoni slap park Ha, and the smirk from sena didn’t do any good either, also that that slap and smirk was the last scene, I’m so glad that E08 wasn’t air last week since that means that awful scene That I hate so much POOR PARK HA, was going to be the cliffhanger, THANKS SBS to decide to aired just E07 ^^

    I hope LEE GAEK will begin to see Park Ha as who she is and not just a maid or guardian, lett’s hope tht confession in preview indeed is him figuring out what he really feels for PARK HA!
    But maybe that will not change LG and he will keep chasing sena since he is the CROWN PRINCE right? He thinks he can have more than one woman rigth? Aigoo poor PARK HA!!

    And I want Park Ha to know the truth about her Rich Mother, I think the writter will let behind that plot cuz the loveline!!


    PD Sorry for my bad english!! T_T


  15. marvz6002 says:

    you are amazing so fast …thank you very much for the recap..I luv RTP and yoochun very much..


  16. tessieroo says:

    Thanks for the recaps! But what’s wrong with the Chairman thinking it’s okay to set up Sena with her grandson? She believes Sena is sweet, hard-working, caring, warm, efficient…or is this a class thing? (She believes this but we know it’s not true) Is the whole family a buncha snobs excluding the Chairman? Today’s episode was my favorite!


  17. cherry says:

    i dont know why grandmother slapped Bakha… how would she knew that he was her grandson? its not like they have his picture posted alll over the place saying “know this face – he is my rich grandson!!” even if he was the real TY – makes no sense, ur grandson has amnesia – even he doesnt know who he is, its not like he would tell her I’m a rich guy plz take me back to my family in korea. but since this is a drama where the reality is time warp, and reincarnation, and butterfly coming to life from a scarf – i’ll let grandma’s slip of judgement go. i will go and continue to squeeel with such happiness that our otp is getting along!!
    oh, and i think BakHa cried because what she read in the book was that the Crown prince died. why she cried? bc in that way she thinks he lied to her again, even when he said he wont ever lie to her. That and the fact that she know thinks he is a true looneybin, an adorable, and lovable looneybin.


  18. ck1Oz says:

    I just wanted to say the scene where Bak Ha yells at Yi Gak about lying and his CPR. The way he jumps? Oh man it’s so funny. Think I watched it like 10 times because it was so cute and funny.


    • chunyenz says:

      @ck1Oz Agree with you, I really love this episode coz there’s a lot cute scene between G and PH, even they’re quarrel and bully each other, but they looked really cute. Chun’s expression really perfect, yes, I watched it too for IDK how many times^^


  19. chunyenz says:

    Waaaa…. so happy watching this episode, so many Chun’s cool face, when he saw H tried all the dresses, when he pretend drove a car (LoL), when he rode the horse with H (very romantic), when he played squash with his left hand (even Prince from Joseon era never used left hand because in that era using left hand was impolite ^^). But Yoochun is an ambidextrous, so he can use his both hands ^^

    H read the history book in library so fast, is that mean Crown Prince’s history written so short? May be it written that the Crown Prince just missing and regarded dead? Why H so sad after he read it? I hope after H read the history she will more understand about G and help him to fulfill his mission, not come back with his princess (Sena) but make all the destiny back to it suppose to be.

    Waiting for tonight, fasten our seat belts, the story moves so so fast. From the preview, G already admit that he likes H, woow… is that too fast? so what he’ll gonna do? stick with his princes or change his direction to H? I hope the story become more more interesting, but please no more problem to be solve, coz there’s still a lot of questions not answered yet.

    Thank you Fand, Softy and everybody here. I only can support you coz tonight you have to make 2 eps recaps. Don’t feel burden dear, I’ll be waiting patiently ^^


  20. jennlo says:
