Historical K-Dramas tend to be exciting. They’re usually filled with drama and action and palace intrigue.

Released way back in 2012, Rooftop Prince is an oldie but a goodie. Crown Prince Lee Gak gets transported 300 years into the future. While most of the scenes take place in 21st century Seoul, the historical aspect is still strong in this one. Just like Mr. Queen, the main character has to adjust to a world he knows nothing about.

Just like the movie, the story starts with the female lead, who is a princess, getting drunk. It’s not soon after that a Joseon scholar’s life is turned upside down when she accuses him of something.
