ASIAN DRAMA CHALLENGE: DAY 13

DAY 13 - A drama you looked forward to but disappointed you in the end?

Rooftop Prince (PLOT) -
When Crown Prince Lee Gak is transported 300 years into the future to present day Seoul along with his three retainers, they believe that it is their duty to solve the murder case of the Crown Princess in order to return to Joseon. They land in the rooftop apartment of Park Ha, a cheerful woman in her mid-20s, who eventually believes the odd quartet's predicament and becomes their guardian. As Park Ha educates the four on life in the 21st century, Lee Gak comes across Hong Se Na, who seems to be the reincarnation of his wife. Taking on the identity of Yong Tae Yong, Lee Gak slowly begins to unravel the murder of Yong Tae Yong and in turn moves closer to solving the murder case of the Crown Princess. As he finds himself in love with Park Ha, he figures that maybe the Crown Princess was not as he expected after all...

WHY ROOFTOP PRINCE?

This was actually a drama I really looked forward too but held it off for awhile because of the thought of the drama being part historical but I didn't care about that what made me want to watch was I heard it was extremely funny and cute.Don't get me wrong, I loved everything about this drama. It was super hilarious probably the funniest drama I've ever seen and was cute as well but the ending was a little disappointing. I wanted more, I wanted the couple to be together now not years later as a new reincarnation of themselves.
But, no that's what they had to do. They had to send Prince Gak back to Joseon Dynasty and never send him back to present day to stay Park Ha. They both had to suffer the lose of the love of their lives during this lifetime and have to wait to meet again in another life which is devastating. Yeah, they end up together in another life but still. I wanted them together. The chemistry was so great between the main leads and they just split them apart like that and we all question it.
OK, I'm done ranting....

HONORABLE MENTION?

Blood (PLOT) -
Park Ji Sang (Ahn Jae Hyun) is the son of a vampire, who becomes inherited with the same abilities and desire for blood. Though he was initially terrified of his identity as a teenager, Ji Sang grows up embracing that side of him and becomes a surgeon. His hunger and crave for blood is suppressed with a special pill he takes before he goes in for an operation, otherwise, he would quickly transform when he encounters blood.
He later gets a job at a hospital and becomes the team manager for the Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery team. On his very first day, Ji Sang meets Yoo Ri Ta (Koo Hye Sun), a Doctor who is arrogant of her academic achievements. Due to his age in comparison to the others, some of the Doctors are reluctant to have a 'kid' as a team manager, but Ji Sung quickly gains their trust when he was given permission by Ri Ta's own uncle to take over her in the middle of an operation. His success only leads to her envy, and the two's rivalry quickly ignites as a result, all while Ji Sang starts to uncover secrets about his family.

WHY BLOOD?

Blood in my opinion wasn't the greatest drama but it wasn't even close to the worst either. It was just okay. But the ending is what really got me, it was just so disappointing. It was the kind of ending that tells you "Think whatever you want the ending to be like. If you want to think that the male lead didn't die, GO AHEAD! If you want to think that, it could be a different vampire that looks exactly like the male lead. OK. Or if this is a different generation and they were both reincarnated to meet again, then cool." Because you can only believe what you want to believe. You will never be told what really happened. It was cut off like that, the female lead is walking in an ally and a few vampire's are about to attack her when "the male lead" suddenly comes out to save her. But we don't know if that is really him because they play it off as if he died. So, we have no clue and are thrown into oblivion as to what the actual outcome of the ending is.

I encourage all of you to play along by making your own cards or answer in the comments, what drama disappointed YOU in the end is!

Let me know! ^.^~

@VIPforever123 I think the male lead is from My Princess and yeah he's fine but still, I don't want to waste my time on a bad drama when I can watch a great one and there are plenty of those. @RedChord I love Rooftop Prince too, it's just the ending... But yes Blood had some boring scenes.

@biancadanica98 I was so sad when the prince was sent back and I was even sadder when she went back to the palace and took the letter he left under there. I mean, he sent a letter to her but she couldn't send one back馃様.

@Mavis2478 I know right, she could only receive and not respond to him. It's so sad.
