Imagine a grown-up young lady who went to Paris to fulfill her late father's wishes by taking up film studies over there, a businessman who is not afraid of anything except love and a free-spirited man who had always knew that he is the nephew of the businessman but maybe not as the series goes along...
This is the story of this romantic Korean drama series. Dubbed as 'Lovers In Paris' in its English translation of the title, the first episode brought its viewers to the very lovely Paris where we meet all those main characters. Tae-young first met Ki-Ju when she saw that the latter's car was not being parked correctly on the streets of Paris. As Ki-Ju needed a maid who can speak Korean to tidy his house in Paris, this was where Tae-young came in. But misunderstandings soon came about. Till Ki-Ju realises his client's wife is a Korean and he remembered about Tae-young and asked her to pretend to his girlfriend.
But the plan soon backfired after the meeting with Ki-Ju's client and the two went back to Korea without realising that they are on the same flight home. For Tae-young, it's to pay her late father a respect at his altar and settling domestic matters. For Ki-Ju, he has become the chairman of the company his father has set up a long time ago. What the two did not realised that they will meet each other again, even back home in Korea. Slowly Ki-Ju realised he may have affections for Tae-young.
But when his free-spirited nephew Soo-Hyuk did even went back home to Korea as well who also likes Tae-young and even a congressman's daughter who determined that he should marry her, things start to become complicated for everyone. Even the seniors themselves. For there is a secret that actually Ki-Ju and Soo-Hyuk never knew all along, but the seniors do. Tae-young soon knew what was the secret and Yoon-ah (the one who determined that Ki-Ju's future wife should be her), who also happened to know Tae-young back in their high school days, asked the former to leave them alone.
As it is often being said that the true love never runs smooth, it is the case here. So, did Tae-young and Ki-Ju ended up together in the end? What will happen to everyone else? The ending, well, it's up to the viewers to decide how to go on from there. Everyone will surely have different opinions on how it might be ended.
I like just about all the songs used in the drama serial. This was actually shown on television here like late last year to early this year. A very light-hearted drama serial. I had depended on the Mandarin dubbing and the subtitles to get me by. Hope those who may be interested in this can find the suitable dubbing and/or subtitles, whichever may be comfortable to them.
