A parody of SBS’s “Fashion King” and “Rooftop Prince”, “Rooftop Fashion King”, has become a topic of discussion online.
On 9 April, a video titled “Rooftop Fashion King”, made by a netizen (ID JukHyulYah), was uploaded onto various online communities, receiving much popularity.
The netizen uploaded an edited video, saying, “I was confused as to whether to make a parody of “Rooftop Prince” of “Fashion King”. I made this video as I was curious what it would be like if Park Yoochun and Yoo Ah In’s two characters, which are overflowing with individuality, were to meet.”
In the video, the crown prince Lee Gak (played by Park Yoochun), who is dressed in the imperial robe, shouts “You demon, hurry and undo this spell you have cast on us.” To this, Young Geol (played by Yoo Ah In) replies, “What do you think you’re doing?”
Following this, the drama OST “Happy Ending”, sung by Park Jae Bum is played, when the duo suddenly transform into Seon Joon and Geol Oh from the KBS drama “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”. With this, the affinity of Park Yoochun and Yoo Ah In from 300 years ago is introduced.
Later, Yoo Ah In is seen making omlette rice for Park Yoochun and his 3-man consort (played by Lee Min Ho, Choi Woo Shik and Jung Suk Won) in the rooftop house, and they begin bickering as usual.
Park Yoochun also looks up Jae Hyuk (played by Lee Jae Hoon), who had insulted Yoo Ah In, and says “Your business is sure to fail”, before saying to Yoo Ah In, “It’s sweet and refreshing, such an interesting taste,” the popular lines from the drama.
This video has currently recorded over tens of thousands of views. Netizens expressed, “As the video flows very well, it feels like a movie,” “It would be great if this could be done for the entire series of ‘Fashion King’ and ‘Rooftop Prince’,” and “The editor’s skills are really amazing,” among other responses.
In response to this, SBS Drama representatives said, “When we first watched the “Rooftop Fashion King” video, it was like watching a movie. It made one suspect if you were seeing or hearing things.”
