[K-DRAMA] ROOFTOP PRINCE: MY THOUGHT
IF YOU'RE FOLLOWING THIS DRAMA VIA OneHD, YOU MIGHT WANT TO SKIP THIS POST AS THIS IS QUITE A SPOILER!
Rooftop Prince has ended its airing last week, and i have to say I'm kinda missed the drama. It is indeed one of my favourite k-drama. Since it started, I've always rooting for Pak Ha & Yi Gak, and I wish they will end up together instead of Yi Gak-Bu Yong or Pak Ha-Tae Yong.
But, the ending was a lil confusing to me, and to some other loyal followers of this drama coz we didn't know who was actually ended up together with Pak Ha. He looks like Tae Yong but his attitude seems like Yi Gak.
So, I've rewatched it again on OneHD, then did some research. Well, read reviews/comments of the drama on Dramabeans or Cadence. Then I started to realise the motive of this drama. It might not be the ending some of us want, but it is acceptable at least for me.
This drama was all about finding your DESTINED LOVE. If you remember, the 1st episode of RP, it started with the death of Crown Princess & the mystery death of Tae Yong. After first few episodes, I have made up my mind the body in the pond was Bu Yong instead of the Crown Princess. So, during Joseon era, the destined love should be Yi Gak-Bu Yong and in the modern era, it supposed to be Tae Yong-Pak Ha. But because of the death of Bu Yong (it was revealed during the final episode), Yi Gak can't find his destined love. This situation is repeated during the modern era, when Tae Yong was accidently 'murdered' by Tae Moo, and Pak Ha can't find her destined love too. But, Tae Yong is basically still alive, and Pak Ha still has a chance to meet her destined love.
So, this is the tricky part, why Yi Gak has to travel 300 years in the future to solve the murder of his Crown Princess? I think it is because, while he is solving the murder, he has to fix the destiny of Pak Ha & Tae Yong, so the 300 years ago event will not be repeated. It just a lil sad, coz to us Yi Gak & Tae Yong are still 2 different persons, and the one that Pak Ha was in love with was Yi Gak not Tae Yong. Same goes with Yi Gak. He might knew Bu Yong but he was never fall in love with Bu Yong, but he was in love with Pak Ha instead.
Yi Gak, is basically ended up with no one, once he went back to Joseon. Do you remember that Pak Ha read something in a history book on Joseon, and she was devastated reading it? RP's writer never reveal it, but i read somewhere, actually it was stated that Yi Gak passed away, 2 years after the death of his Crown Princess, and he never ends up with anyone else. I don't know how true was this, so, let's just assume here. LOL!
Then, who was with Pak Ha at the end of the drama. Yi Gak or Tae Yong? It was Tae Yong obviously TT.TT... Well, we can assume Tae Yong woke up from the coma but having a memory of Tae Yong & a lil of Yi Gak. He can draw, so he has to be Tae Yong. But when he stood, he put his 2 hands at the back, that is Yi Gak. So, Tae Yong might not know bout Yi Gak & Pak Ha's love story but he has feeling towards Pak Ha coz of Yi Gak's memory. Writer of RP has put it as an open ending: It's up to us to think whether it is Yi Gak or Tae Yong that ended up with Pak Ha. And as for dearie Yi Gak, his mission was accomplished, coz he managed to fix the destiny of Tae Yong & Pak Ha coz that is why after 300 years, their love never change.
ps: this drama was never a logic one, but i don't know why the writer has to make it as logic as it can be on the finale... LOL
