(C)offee Prince or The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince

Coffee Prince Gong Yoo

Starring: Gong Yoo, Yoon Eun-Hye, Lee Sun-Kyun

The series is from 2007, so you might find Gong Yoo a little raw, but it also means he is young and so much meatier, excuse my language.

Choi Han-Kyul is a rich, spoilt brat (chaebol) who will someday own the big and successful family coffee business, however, he is interested in neither working nor getting married. His grandmother puts a challenge before him – he needs to run a café successfully all by himself. For the café, Han-Kyul hires only good looking men, and in the process inadvertently hires Koh Eun-chan, an androgynous girl who often gets mistaken for a man. Han-Kyul feels this inexplicable strong pull towards Eun-chan and starts believing himself to be gay.

Gong Yoo carries the show, however, the first lady is not be discounted; Yoon Eun-Hye as a head strong, street smart and responsible girl matches the acting prowess of Gong Yoo. I have watched this show multiple times and still watch if from time to time.

Watch the show for the handsome Gong Yoo, and the unmistakable and endearing chemistry between the lead actors.

    1. True Manali. It’s such a cute plot, the girl mistaken for a boy, and the lead male actor having doubts on his sexual orientation because of the strong pull he feels towards this boy. 🙂
