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. Written by L. Hamre

Good Enough
17 August 2019 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

Although an oldie, my name is sam soon is a goodie.

The story is simple and you know where it is heading. Sure, there were some cliches, that, fortunately, didn't take over the drama, thus, the story was more upbeat and fresh.

The comedy part, however, was the main star of the drama. The two characters, although they didn't overflow chemistry as a couple, were great as the two opposites that kept colliding.

In addition, a big part of the main drama was good, as it was closer to a slice of life than the romantic comedy genre.

Finally, the performances were really good.

So, overall, seven out of ten.
