Seo Yu Gyeong is an aspiring pasta chef who has worked as an assistant in the kitchen of La Sfera for three years. Upon her promotion to a chef, the head chef changes and she -- along with all the other female chefs -- find themselves fired by Choe Hyeon Uk. Unable to accept the fact that only the women were fired, Yu Gyeong convinces Hyeon Uk to rehire her. As they clash heads over everything, life becomes complicated in the kitchen and in their personal lives.
This drama starts funny, with a head chef, who likes the heroine and wants to date her on the one hand, but on the other hand fires her, because he is her new boss and has the policy to only have male assistants in the kitchen.
This drama was entertaining and nice to watch and not a tiny bit dramatic. And that's one of my main points of criticism. The way they got together (and how their relationship developed) didn't convince me of their love for each other, like other dramas did. It looked a bit random and like something, that could break apart at any random point as well. And I didn't like Yeo Yu Kyeong. She never got any of chef's jokes, was not even half supporting him like he was supporting her and she behaved like a 13-year-old shy girl with a ball of yarn in her mouth. Sometimes she even said smart things, but due to her character she gave me always the impression she was dull. I think the president would have been a better match, since he was a bit dull as well xD
But I looooved the chef. He is the coolest and toughest guy ever. You probably are surprised, since I detested Full House because of the yelling guy, but the chef isn't like him. He doesn't yell because of some sort of complex, but because he knows his place and wants his people to get something done. And he has a really sweet side. So most of the four stars go to Lee Seon Gyeon. He made this drama so enjoyable!
