JYJ Yoochun’s “Rooftop Prince” Overwhelming Favorite Among Japanese Fans

JYJ Yoochun’s upcoming TV drama series, “Rooftop Prince,” has been voted the overwhelming top pick among Japanese fans for “2012’s Most Anticipated Korean Drama.”

According to “Innolife.net,” a Japanese website specializing in Hallyu content, SBS “Rooftop Prince” received 59.2% of the total votes in a survey that asked which TV drama series would be the most anticipated once the currently airing MBC “The Moon That Embraces the Sun” comes to an end. The second place went to Jang Geun Suk and Girls’ Generation’s YoonA’s KBS drama “Love Rain.” But the KBS drama only attracted 447 votes, or 14.6% of the total votes, which is nearly a 44.6% difference with “Rooftop Prince.”

“We knew fans were interested in ‘Rooftop Prince,’ but had no idea it was this popular overseas. I’d like to thank all the fans and we’ll do our best to make sure we satisfy their expectations,” Kim Na Young, the main producer of “Rooftop Prince” said.

SBS “Rooftop Prince” will air its first episode on March 14 at 10PM KST. So far, JYJ’s Yoochun and Han Ji Min have been cast as the two lead roles. They will appear alongside Jung Yoo Mi, Lee Min Ho, and Jung Suk Won, among many others.
