Since the first report on long-term durable perovskite solar cell in 2012, a surge of interest in perovskite solar cell has been received due to its superb photovoltaic performance exceeding 20%. $MAPbI_3$ ($MA=CH_3NH_3$) perovskite film is able to be prepared simply by solution processesof either sequential two-step or single step procedure. Since $MAPbI_3$ shows balanced charge transport property with micrometer scale charge diffusion length, it can be applied to any kind of junction structures. Mostly studied structure is mesoscopic structure employing mesoporous oxide layer in perovskite film. Photovoltaic performance is primarilyin fluenced by the quality of perovskite film but interfaces are equally important. In this mini review, emergence and evolution of perovskite solar cell are described.
