Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Kim Sam Soon (Kim Sun Ah) is a baker who has a talent in making pastries and cakes. On Christmas Eve, she caught her boyfriend, Min Hyun Woo (Lee Kyu Han), cheating on her and breaks up on the same night. On that same night, she accidentally went into the men's restroom and met Hyun Jin Hun (Hyun Bin), a somewhat callous fellow but sometimes considerate guy. By sheer coincidence, Jin Hun needs a baker for his restaurant Bon Appetit and Sam Soon is unemployed. Sam Soon is hired as the restaurant's chief baker and the two fights like cat and dog. Nevertheless, they started to have feeling for each other and Sam Soon agreed to post as Jin Hun's girlfriend so his mother would leave him alone. Things got complicated when Jin Hun's ex-girlfriend Yoo Hee Jin came back from the States intending to win him back.
I like my drama’s with a happy ending. Honestly, the ending is not really a fairy tale happy ever after ending but is a realistic one ... still a happy one. I am very averse to tragic endings. I quite accept tear jerkers but the ending must have hope if not immediate happiness.
Of all the drama’s I’ve watched, I really enjoyed this because it is grounded in reality. Particularly with the main character not being glamorous and super sexy. With the main male lead trying to realize his affection and the animosity between the new and the old girlfriend. I particularly like it when Sam-soong stated from the start that she don’t like the ex-gf to her face.
To summarize, this is the story of a man who has been waiting for the return of his old girlfriend who promised return in 5 years but have yet to contact him since she left. On the 3rd year of his wait, through a series of contrived situations, he met an Sam Soon and fell for her. Unfortunately ... his old girlfriend returned and both women would not give up the man.
This drama has the right balance of comedy, drama and romance. The only thing I didn’t like about it is the use of toilet humor. I literally cringe during bathroom scenes. Fortunately those scenes are not important and can be safely skipped over.
