The untold love story: Rooftop Fashion King
by | April 8, 2012 | 78 Comments

javabeans: New mashup! It’s Rooftop Prince meets Fashion King in… wait for it… Rooftop Fashion King.

girlfriday: Hahaha. So perfect. Is it the long-awaited sequel to Sungkyunkwan Scandal? I always knew those crazy kids were meant to be.

javabeans: So when they were fighting over sleeping positions, they really WERE just trying to get close to each other?

girlfriday: Yeah, they were like, what’s this girly other guy doing here? We were good just the two of us!

javabeans: It’s the age-old story of two kiddos from the opposite side of the tracks, one Noron, the other Soron…

girlfriday: Bickering hate turns into love…

javabeans: And transcends time, apparently. So in Rooftop Fashion King, old-timey Yoochun arrives in these suspicious new times…

girlfriday: Did he follow Ah-in to the future? Because he couldn’t live without his friend?

javabeans: I believe Yoochun accuses Ah-in of using his wicked sorcery to warp him into the present, and insists he set things to rights. Ah-in’s all, Whatever, dude, get away… until we see the flashback to when Ah-in was in Joseon times with him.

girlfriday: It’s kinda amusing that they’re the same personalities from the other drama, in their new ones. Ah-in is as surly as ever and Yoochun is still a haughty stick-in-the-mud.

javabeans: That’s what makes the mashup (which was done by the same person who did the awesome Hunter over Flowers) so great. It totally works, on all fronts — Rooftop, Fashion King, AND Sungkyunkwan. So now you have Yoochun running around Seoul trying to get Ah-in to reverse his spell, and they keep bickering back and forth all the time, which you know is just a prelude to the love part.

girlfriday: I love that there’s actually a fashion show sequence in both shows that fits perfectly.

javabeans: And the omurice feeding! How Ah-in kicks him out, then feels bad and feeds him. I love how Yoochun watches Ah-in eating and comments how pretty he looks eating. How appropriate that it’s Yoochun who breaks the gender taboo in both dramas, being up-front about his feelings…

girlfriday: And the look on his face when he sees him get into bed shirtless? Followed by the declaration that he’s going to live there now. Hee.

javabeans: Cheeky punk. Then Yoochun sees Ah-in being manhandled by that punk Lee Je-hoon, and gets all hot ‘n bothered.

girlfriday: All, that’s MY bickering-hate-manlove! Step away! This is like an entire 16-episode drama on speed. Yoochun finally melts Ah-in’s cold heart…

javabeans: And they live happily ever after? Or at least until they come out with Antique Miss Ripley Who Can’t Marry?

girlfriday: That one sounds less pleasant. I think I’ll stick to more episodes of Rooftop Fashion King.

javabeans: I’ll take its racier cousin, Rooftop Scandal.

girlfriday: Rawr! For that, we need Joong-ki.

javabeans: Well, he’s got the fashion design creds now. He can be the creative diva they fight over.

girlfriday: Or they could cut in his Tree With Deep Roots footage, to have two royals fighting for the throne.

javabeans: LOL: “You will be king! Toughen up!” “But I want to do what I want to do!… design hanboks!”

girlfriday: Cut to future, where Yoochun discovers that the real reason Ah-in came to the present was to make it so that Joong-ki could follow his dreams. Love triangle!

javabeans: Heartbreak! Well, I guess the prince can’t beat the two kings.

girlfriday: Two? Oh Joseon and Fashion? Aw, poor princey. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride.

    OH.MY.GOD i’m dying of happiness right now xD

    • 1.1 Mawiie

      that’s seriously the most coherent thing I could say right now

      • 1.1.1 M.D.

        I would be , probably as happy as you if it had subtitles. Probably the dialogues do change the situation a bit! I had lots of fun anyway only with the girls comments and my own Korean anguage knowledge… somewhat close to 0, but.. It is hilarious anyway!

  2. ryuu99

    can anyone tell me where i can download softsubs for TK2H for the HanREL version?

    • 2.1 jandoe

      go to asiasub.blogspot.com!

      • 2.1.1 ryuu99

        it may be late but thank you!

        also, Dramafever’s subs aren’t good at all. they miss out on a lot of words. wth..

  3. Koreandramasrock

    This is EPIC!!!

  4. Noelle

    The title is eye catching…off to read.

  5. nuri

    how funny. unfortunately that makes me just wish Sungkyunkwan 2 with original pairing. i keep imagining Song Joong Ki with Yoo Ah In.

    • 5.1 kungfupigeon

      Check this out then…


      • 5.1.1 Ani

        Aaaaaaaaaaw. *melt* If only if only….

      • 5.1.2 nuri

        aw.. thank you..

      • 5.1.3 diorama

        *fans self* More than a year later, and this is still my secret fave OTP.

        • kungfupigeon

          You know its an OTP when people who don’t even watch dramas (or anything like thev) comment on the chemistry

    • 5.2 lucertola

      I like Gullim’s pairing…but seeing this mashup is pretty hilarious. Love it. ^_^
      Here for all kdrama slash fans:

    • 5.3 Rovi

      적혈야화 (the user making this incredible mashup vids; s/he also did the mashup of “Cinderella Sister” and “Kim Tak-goo”, and also a fanservice-y one named “Cinderella Oppa”, I think the latter had already been discussed in here…)

      Seems troll is a fan of the Yummy (Yeorim-Moony) pairing…majority of user’s vids are dedicated to them…

  6. student viewer

    BUT JOONG KI was the one for AH IN. Stoooopid Yoochun…

    • 6.1 Rovi

      yes, me too…
      I’ll await the day when YAI & SJK will act alongside one drama…YAI had said he wanted to act in a drama alongside SJK, so he wouldn’t escape that one…XD

  7. jessly

    This is a fantastic and hilarious mashup. LOL

  8. ck1Oz

    Hahaha I can so feel the love. Love it.

  9. stars4u

  10. 10 furansizuka

    • 10.1 furansizuka

      • 10.1.1 Kiara

  11. 11 TE

    My Sun Joon/ Guh-ro/ Yeorim bromance

    I hope they keep the real life bromance alive

    Thank You JB/GF


    I hope we find out GF’s thoughts on rooftop prince and JB’s thoughts on K2H and JB/GF’s thoughts on FK in the next podcast

    I’m so glad to see all three of them (and Park Min Young) do so well after sungkyunkwan scandal
    I cant watch FK even for Ah In but Wandeuki was wonderful
    and i am loving RTP and loved TWDR

    p.s have some cute Joong KI


    • 11.1 Ani

      Hrm. Joongki’s lips. Yum. XD

  12. 12 birdscout

    I never fail to be amazed by the creativity of those who produce these mashups. The music, the editing, everything is so well done! And I never fail to enjoy these conversation posts! Thanks javabeans and girlfriday! 🙂

  13. 13 xiaoSxin

    완전…. 대박 ~ !!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. 14 chewywon

    I heard news that SBS Representative also commented about the mash-up of “Rooftop Fashion King” mv, which could only mean one thing……that eventually Yoochun & Yoo Ah-in will get to see the MV as well.

    I want my tri-SKKS gang member season 2 for real this time!!!

  15. 15 Ace

    Noooo!!! Yeorim loves Jae-shin! Although that’s a really funny mashup, hehe. I thought at first that it was gonna be a written mashup (remember PTB+NewGisaeng?), but was relieved it was not that kind of mashup. 😉

  16. 16 JYDY

    These mashups are so genius!
    And look what I found http://tvpot.daum.net/clip/ClipView.do?clipid=40887189

    • 16.1 anotheraddict

      OMG!!! An SKKS/RP mashup and a SeGa/K2H mashup?! *squees, prays for subs*

    • 16.2 ricky trh

      Gil Ra-im got lost in the forest and returns with Princey as a North Korean soldier while Joo-won tries to get her memory back. Oooh, I’d watch that!

    • 16.3 WickedBiccie

      Oh my God!! That SeGa/K2H mashup is sheer genius!! And Lee Sun Gi’s ‘chincha?’ at the end? I laughed so loud I probably startled the neighbours!

      Now if I can only find subs for these I may just survive the election preemptions……..

  17. 17 anotheraddict

    I love drama mashups. I think my fave is still the Cha Seung Won + Lee Seon Kyun one:


    A year and a half ago when I was caught up in the SKKS fervor, I commented that for the good of humanity, it should be mandated that Yoo Ah In and Song Joong Ki continue on as Moon Jae Shin and Gu Yong Ha, and that I would love to see them as time travelers in a modern-day drama. Ever since I first heard about YAI being cast as the Fashion King, I’ve wished this were about Guhro and Yeorim as The Fashion Kings. Little did I know that time-traveling would become all the rage in K-dramaland and that Yoochun would be the one making the jump.

  18. 18 djes

    really really creative work.

    Thank you, Dramabeans, for bringing to me a new source of entertainment (translate to: a new way for me to procrastinate, yippee! — because let’s be serious, I’m going to fail all my exams anyway) that will temporarily satisfy my hunger for Korean media.

  21. 21 cingdoc

    BRAVO….for the great job…

    hehe…it’s always good to see Smarty & Horsey reunite 🙂

    • 21.1 Alli

      always thought it was swoony and moony

      but IA its great to see them reunite

  22. 22 Laya

    omg roflmao this is awesome!

  23. 23 conan

    So… this Rooftop Scandal that you were talking about. I’m listening.

    I’ve been wanting a Yoochun-Ain-Joongki project again for ever. Mostly the Ain-Joongki bit. They have the best three-way bromance ever in the history of universe. No contest. I hope the writers, directors, and producers are listening now. I don’t care what it is. Just bring them back together.

    • 23.1 nuri

      Yup. backing you up. Something with three of them and shirtless YAI (ups, did I say it out loud?).

  24. 24 shin mi rae

    epic. i wish joong ki has something showing too. that will make it super epic.

  25. 25 Endroine

    OMG WANT!!! XD

  26. 26 myra

  27. 27 missmanderley

  32. 32 sweetooth

    awww. but this ain’t a scandal with no Gu Yong Ha in it. 😀

    but i’ll take anything from Jalgeum Quartet, they’re certainly the best creation ever made from Joseon era.

    • 32.1 Rovi

      please, I just 적혈야화 doesn’t make up a mashup of “Shitty Hunter” & “SKK Scandal” then make it to “SKK Hunter” I don’t want het.PMY-LMH, pls…

  41. 41 Schmazel

    Speaking of mash-ups, I watched this just the other day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZYEcqGo-lk

    It’s not a bromancey one, but rather one featuring Park Yoo Chun and Han Ji Min.

    Here’s another:
