    I started watching this drama because I read the fantastic reviews people wrote here about it, so I started really exciting, expecting something like Coffee Prince meets the kitchen, but I got something really different.

    This is a great drama, the characters are great and I loved that it actually did have a lot about food because a lot of dramas, like You're Beautiful, Only You and Heartstrings are about a certain subject but you never get to actually see the writers exploding that.

    The thing that really bothered me about this one that made me not like this drama so much was the female lead. She had no personality whatsoever, always letting everyone push her around, even her love

    I loved this. I was 1/2 in love with Lee Sun Gyun after Coffee Prince but Pasta has sealed my fate. He is such a great actor. I love it when a facial expression can say more than words and he's really perfect at that skill. Chef Choi is a complex man and at times, very tough to take. Lee Sun Gyun made him lovable as well. Gong Hyo Jin did a great job. Her character is strong, talented and ready to break out. I liked how their romance brought out the best in each other. Pasta is great fun to watch. For me, it's up there among my favorites. I give it an 8 because the plot was lacking but I think the chemisty between read more

  • Both stories are about a young girl who is inexperienced and is tutored by someone who is a master at the craft and then she falls for him. Both dramas have the same feel although one is about food and the other about writing.

  • In both dramas they deal with food and romance.

    I started watching this because I'm a Lee Sun Gyun fan, however I hate dramas where the male lead domineers over the female lead so...end of story.

    I do not particularly like Gong Hyo Jin & Lee Sun Gyun who I understand are the lead roles in this drama.

    I would like to watch for the supporting cast. Can anyone who has seen it let me know if the supporting actors have adequate screen time or is it predominantly the leads focused on. No spoilers please.

      If you want GHJ-Awesomeness you should rather watch Greatest Love or Crush and Blush or Biscuit Teacher and Star Candy but Pasta is okay as well xD

    I decided to watch it because of Lee Sun Gyun who seemed very good in Coffee Prince, but what I don't understand is how come this drama got such low rates than Coffee Prince. Such a shame!
    I loved this drama, probably because I am a food lover and I like to dump curbs in my stomach and I like Pasta a lottt.... and the romance part, working in a restaurant, environment in a working place, lives of chefs, lives of others were portrayed in a very meaningful way. Love it!! The OSTs are amazing!!
    One of the most favorite moment of the drama was in the last part of episode 15 when the chef threw in the towel for what he had done. So many favorite moments... finished the series in 2 days :D. This is so getting all the 5stars from me ;)
    • Es01 Sep 10, 2013

    I really loved this drama it was very very good and I loved that the 2 leads got together pretty early on and stayed together and that there wasn't really any crazy rivals. the only thing that I had a small problem with was that there were soooo many side characters so none of them really got developed but since this story mostly focused on the 2 leads it didn't take anything away from the story

    For anyone hesitant to watch this drama: The male lead is not a chauvinist. Yes, he is an egotistical control freak, but he isn't a sexist jerk. The reason he initially fires all of the women is because he is terrified of falling in love as he was once hurt very badly in a relationship. His actions were most definitely wrong, (and I really don't get why the women didn't just sue him) but don't let the first 2 eps fool you; he knows women are most definitely capable of being awesome chefs ;)

    I recently discovered this series again and just loved it. I absolutely love the chemistry between the main couple, comical but sweet and refreshing. I just adore them for being together. <3
