Storyline

It's Christmas-time and klutzy Kim Sam-Soon is nearly thirty years old, overweight, dumped by her cheating boyfriend, and out of work. After an embarrassing first meeting with arrogant restaurant-owner Hyeon Jin-Heon, she is employed as a pastry chef. Sam-Soon and her younger employer are equally stubborn and opinionated. The pair often argue, but Jin-Heon asks her to pretend to be his girlfriend when he wants to avoid his family's matchmaking. Things get more complicated when Yu Hee-Jin --the pretty ex-girlfriend Jin-Heon still pines for, returns from America with handsome Dr. Henry Kim in tow... Written by L. Hamre

Something different, something familiar...
16 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How do you know if the series is doing well? For "My Lovely Samsoon", critics did not have to look far with the increase of inquiries on pastry-chefs, bakeries finding themselves running out of stock exponentially faster and even bookstores selling the German children's book "MOMO" caught off guard. When the locations of filming also because guided tour-sites, there was little left to wonder.

Such was the craze that swept South Korea and eventually many other Southeast Asian countries with the release of this koreanovella.

I was not a fan prior to watching "My lovely Samsoon". In fact, I was quite the skeptic. Knowing how Asia's film/series industry cater to unrealistic love stories I was actually getting ready to thrash this series to pieces.

Yet it was such a wonderful surprise as I finished the 16 episodes and now re-watching every single one for the umpteenth times! I don't want to bore you with big words and exaggerations.

Realistic dialogs, direct yet layered storytelling and cinematography, superb acting are only some of the delightful quirks and twists one will find this series.

I don't understand a word of Korean but it didn't matter.

Enjoy! ;-)
