Rooftop Prince 5

The Cute: it's getting predictable, but the JF4 is still CUTE. When it's just about them, eating steak, cutting hair, getting into buildings with security guards, I still chuckle a little, less than the last eps, but my tickle buttons r still pushed.  And it's a nice progression seeing their strange family of oddballs coming together, and  ParkHa is concerned about them as naturally as breathing air now having them around has become a less troublesome habit.

Thoughts on RP4


[credit: @麦兜白 fr weibo]
I dun think Chun can be not cute throughout the run of RP, a bit out of character and being a bit too Chun as a panda, but it's too d'awwwwwwwwww for words and I'll be like hitting a puppy to nitpick.  The other 3 teletubbies r giving me a laugh or 2 each.   Can't ask for more ….or can I?! *mild spoilers*

Waitin for Rooftop Prince 3: *tapping fingers nonstop*

I was so swarmed today and hurriedly got my arse off the moment I can.  As soon as I stepped into my frontdoor, I literally kicked off my muddy boots and coat, hopped to my laptop, starting my dl.

haha RP is not crack status (yet), I survive hours after it's out for grabs, without too much of a thought, but it's guaranteed mindless fun, I don't need it asap, but I'm going to dunk into a bowl of icecream if it's there.  You know what sugar high u'll be getting, there won't be 'surprises' or any twists of fate, but oh so satisfying the Fun.

So yes, 30 mins I have to wait. What's better than Spoilerish gifs stolen @ weibo?  All by the lovely and talented 3hree_voice and ichigojj 

I'm biased and I only follow hardcore 6002 fans, they r still nursing their split sides!

it's not chronological, but I don't care, do you?!! ^^

gifs galore!

Spending quality time with Rooftop Prince 2

I'm 10 min into the ep, and I'm loling like the crzy woman I am.   If you were twelve and ur folks took you to some movie starring Oscar the Grouch , THEN after the movie, the revelation hit,  you've seen sth funny but you don't know what, why and how, that would be me, and it's not really Oscar the Grouch but Stephen Chow.  In many ways Stephen is like a visualization of a 2D OTT manga character crossing the dimension into our movies, oblivious to it all.  Any HK boy can connect with his every dirty joke, fr its conception to the execution.  The fishes out of water in RP feel real enough to me in the same manga-ish strokes, it's what I expect and go 'Ah-ha!' at every joke they play on the time-leapers, u see it forming, see it coming and you'll laugh like the lab rat you r programmed to.  I've tried to hold it, once(at that hitting glass door scene), just to be the rebel against the power of 6002 the crown prince, majorFAIL!

A min into RP2, my teenhood eye-opening experience is rushing back.  YC's characterization is pitch perfect convincing, the ignorance naivete r delicately written and acted out fluidly and so in character every min of this sitcom, those wide-eyed shock is on and in perfect comical timing every single time.  It's not a fluke, he should keep doing this, and I will never get tired of drama after drama of his perfection.

I'm loling my behind off with every gesture of those 4 Joseon teletubbies.  Esp YooChun, there won't be a cuter thing that can do those faces better in my eyes, ok maybe E.T. but now I'm seeing ET with YC's face…and it's still muahahahaha.  And there's not a gesture, or a face he makes that I dun think it's not a combo of pretty+cute+hilarious yet still so convincingly in character, our persimmon. 

*back to loling every second at those pretty primary color 'ahjusshis' on ma screen*

Wanna do a 1 sec test IF this is for you?

If you think this is:
A: what a pretty girl! *hair envy*  -> go watch
B. lolz -> go watch
C. roflamobbq muahahahaha, and pretty -> pst, watcha donig here?!  I'm sure u've been watching already u 6002 fangirl! *hug*

But if I may, though HJM is having sweet chemistry with YC, she's also trying wayyyy too hard and clearly uncomfy playing up the aegyo + plucky.  I wanna shake her and tell her to just relax, exhale! and be herself even.  This is not PadamPadam no more.  Her character needs not have every minute thought spelled out, it's not advance Calculus we r dealin with here, and be having all these exaggerated cutesy 16 yo expressions.  I saw some YC in BlackSmith CFs/stills with KTH, I can't help but wonder if she'll be a better fit here. *kekeke I know 6002 will approve!*

Rooftop Prince1 and bits of 2 *spoilers!*

I like it, most of it!  Do you?

The writing have glitches, the editing can be slicker and there must be a better way than doing those every 5 min time-jumps.  There r little things I wish better, nth major.  I'm surprised they covered a lot of backstory and plot and it's very light on the slapstick ( I demand more!).

The obvious: PYC is carrying the show,  we can sigh sighs of relief and be genuinely proud of our 6002.  I don't have to worry about a slight wince here or there seeing him stressing, tensing and showing his uncomfy ever so slightly as I did in Ripley.  I think he has questionable chemistry with LDH in Ripley, I like his rapport with KHJ much better there but she's completely wasted.  Here he's so much believable sparks flying with both the ladies.  That scene he shared with wifey he loves, poems, lotsa flowers and a veiled HJM/SiL, their eyes have a sizzle btn them when they crossed while brainromancing over poetry, it's sweet and lovely.   And he nails the right amount of flirty there with his SiL, his Princesswifey a feet away!
I love those little surprises in plot. What's the deal with the Joseon FiL? I now need to patch up my own clues of the murder mystery unfolding.  I love the little riddle.  I'm interested in all the J4 boys. In a strange way they remind me of ep1 of Strange Hero Ijimae.

My tweaks:

1. HJM and JYM should do some switcheroo.  Either have them be closer apart age-wise than the younger versions r telling us.   IF it's the HJM during Resurrection, she doesn't need any effort to do this angelic to a fault goody2shoes.  Now, it's like I can see her laboriously trying to rem how she was like in 2005 and ape it with too much smiling.  I know it's just ep1, but IF say at the funeral, she's faking not remembering a thing and give us a telling cunning little glance of Revenge! instead of 'oh I got a convenient lobotomy fr a lorry hit, u know, the happier AiMH way! ^^'

2.  Is it necessary for the evil sibling be this E.V.I.L!!?  Because we see them struggling a bit in doing those awful deeds.  The Joseon SYJ lookalike (so pretty!) baby bigsis had her ideas, but it was honestly an unintentional trip.  It would be more interesting keeping her a human IF she really felt terrible afterwards, even for as long as a passing look of guilt.  And I missed why the parents chose the younger plainer looking baby as bride if the criteria was as shallow.  The truck thing when they were the young modern versions was too much.  I can take that shoplifting plot, but really dumping a child in a garbage truck with her kicking and screaming?!?! And why is the block deserted?  Why is she napping INSIDE a garbage truck in the first place??  Is everyone in the block Deaf?! We can still have the separate them by Fate!+EvilSib! effect  with babysis still napping, her walking away but regretting it, dashes back as truck speeds on out of her reach…and not manning up to it later on.

3. The whole NYC TSq arc.   It's short and relatively painless considering we can make fun of it to death, with love and it's still cute regardless.  BUT why not transport EvilSis + StepMom to say JeJu Island a strait apart fr mainland and have FilthyRichChaebols+Cinderella in Seoul?  Then we don't have to deal with bloody Korglish, silliest fruit stand and Black and White little thieves ENTIRELY!  I suspect the writer is trying to cram in as many folklore and fairytale references.  But can we have more Wicked, less CinderellaCandyCandy?!?!?!  It's to the point if the girls have been watching them half of ONE Kdrama their whole life (I bet it's more a necessity to rent some living in NYC, considering how fluent her Korean, and she's not fooling me, she must learn her some Korglish watching, oh SnowQueen?!), they can sniff the EvilSis/Girl2PsychoBitch an ocean away and know the suck of being one in a Kdrama.  Butterflies = Butterfly lovers, weaving in SnowWhite (our pretty prince) -> badapple ( in Big Apple!) -> stupor (physically hit, premonition of the later Hit!)  But oh, can't we be smugger and have her throwing an apple martini at his face while he's checking her cute behind with a little pinch?!?!  We can have a soaked PYC + apple + intoxicating substance all in one! It's too unintentionally funny in the age of DrawSth to still be having postcard+charcoal at hand even for an Artist (and an empty bench for u to sit pretty in, while sketching ur masterpiece of ur fruit goddess?! in the middle of TSq?!??! muahhahahhahah)

And 2: let the funnies begin!  XDDD (all fr weibo)

TGIF: Rooftop Prince and HongShi

Rooftop Prince Teaser #(I've lost count):  The one where YooChun is in a half pony + red tracksuit. (seriously this, crazy fangirls, we so can do at home and hack a CP look out of it EVERY NITE!  I'll go order myself a red a-di-dos #, a red sharpie to color one of the strips off and the shuttlecock….and I'll only have halfpony do the whole duration of RP.  And our token munching:dried persimmons: crowned prince = ShiZi = persimmons in mandarin and we all want a bite of him).  Oh and he grabs his OTP's face (yeah while we scream our 'kissu! kissu!' perfectly knowing it wont happen, but some of us still vv want, the rest have their beach shovels ready to scoop HJM off the platform and swing her to Mars).  Yeah, most probably he'll get a big giant slap fr thumbelina the sec it's cut off, but our prince will do wrist grabs! (yayaya the self-respecting lady in us say we hate our wristgrabs, but I've locked her in her little study with her Austens+Brontes every time I watch me some Kdrama).  Wristgrabs will lead into bodies inching closer, UST sparkling like fireworks…skinship with a few thin mms btn them tracksuits and what underneath.   And our prince was a married guy,  I trust he knows what to do with zippers EARLY after timetraveling. *duh…he put on his very own track suit #, silly! Wait…did his minions dress him still? need to see that*  And thumbelina will be ANGRY! HOW DARE YOUU~~~! while flushed and red like the tracksuit, and be hitting…whatever that tiny hand of a tiny HJM can do damage on our Persimmon's gorgeous cute face…but I do think she can do a tonne of pain if she really has the heart in her to hit him, considering his face is not much bigger than her tiny hand.

Most of that is not visually depicted, but all there, trust me.


more cuteness!

MORE Rooftop Prince!!!!

will be the death of me.  I dont know whyyyyyy every little thing about it is like my catnip. MEOWWW~PURRR~RAWRRR~!
I bet I'm the last one to get to these, I'm just dumping it all here so I can come back and re-lick it after my errands r done for today.

The drama can now be crappy and I'll still love these trailers to bits.  Does the production make the BEST trailers or what?!  A taste of the fluffy romance in all the lovely spring pinkblossoms, then hit us in our guts with all the funnies and dramatics. All in 30~s this time.

Another preview:

All fr weibo, thanks to the lovely original posters/Cassies!^^

That kind of Monday….

EVERYTHING is screaming for me to either just quit or fake sick and curl up at home laughing my ass off and keep touching and squeezing my scrn.

What's this the best boxing day/Monday or what?!?!?


fr@3hree_voice weibo

every tiny gestures of these 4 Joseon Derps r KILLING me!  Or if I am being the pure PYC fanahjumma I can be, he deserves some SBS acting award keeping his arms behind him in his impractical royalprune way fleeing down steps in fear of their lives on what they would compute as alien/demon abduction about to happen.  And who's the green Joseon teletubbie who falls so cute?! Lee MinHo? ahhhhh *back to lulzing and trying to make it noiseless*
And…I can't.  Give the cutie all the ramyuns!!

fr@3hree_voice weibo

I dun even know the context, I don't need it, but the world is giving me Roy Chiu outcute-ing the bebe he's holding in the midst of shelves of books/mangas/papers.  Should I be worried rocks will start falling nonstop after all this greatest fangirl luck?! Yeah, it's telling me to stay home and be safe yet sick fr flailing ASDFGAFHDGFJFSASDLKGG.

Sorry this will be RooftopPrince/PYC silly fangirling lj for next few months.  Please unfriend me if this will bother, no hard feelings.  *hug*
