Coffee Prince the 1st Shop

Coffee Prince the 1st Shop is another Korean popular drama series aired by MBC Channel from July 2 to August 27, 2007 which consists of 17 cups (episodes). The chemistry of the couple, Gong Yoo (as Choi Han Kyul) and Yoon Eun Hye (as Go Eun Chan), are fun to watch because their expression in their acting was so natural. “Later on they fight; later on they misses each other.”

Eun Chan's father died when she was a child and promised her father to be the breadwinner of the family. She had a numerous jobs and gave up her femininity just to do men’s work. Her gender was mistaken as a boy by Han Kyul, a happy go lucky rich guy who has been set into blind dates by her grandmother for he’s about to turn 30 years old. To keep away from those arranged blind dates, he decided to hire Eun Chan as his gay lover yet, she had no choice but to accept the job for she badly needed cash to pay her debt.

Han Kyul inherited a coffee shop that nearly leads to a bankruptcy from his grandmother. Female is not accepted to work in the shop but Eun Chan begged to be employed. Because Han Kyul mistaken her identity as a boy, he hired her. Feelings started to occur in the middle of the story. But, what if he finds out that she’s a girl? Will she be kicked out? Or will they fall in love and accept each other? It’s for you to find out on what will be the answer. It will be aired soon in the Philippines’ GMA network this coming New Year 2008, January 1.

I’ll be waiting for the Coffee Prince 2 and MBC were planning for it because both lead cast click well together including rating of the show. However, I’ve heard that Gong Yoo may not be around on the next sequel for signing up the army in one year. I guess no one can replace their perfect chemistry on the series.
