When her father suddenly dies, Yang Eun Bi sees herself confronted with an important decision: Does she want to inherit the ramyeon shop of her family, or is she going to give in the pleads of Cha Chi Su, the son of a rich company owner and the self-proclaimed prince of his school, who wants her back as a teacher after she resigned because of hitting him twice. If that was not enough, Eun Bi is pursued by Choe Gang Hyeok, who always claims that they are married. Maybe there is a chance to solve all the problems and find a solution?
This is basically a very simple, straight-forward romantic comedy. Pretty unusual loud young woman aspiring to become a teacher for the prestige meets arrogant teenage offspring of a pretty wealthy family, they have hilariously immature fights, another possible love interest of hers turns up and... well, that's basically how the story goes. In between they all work in a ramen shop hiring only handsome boys which is where the title comes from.
It was cute and had some touching moments but overall it was only fluff, nothing deep. But that's cool with me because that's what I was prepared for. Around the end I got a quite tired of it and skipped some scenes but that's what always happens when I watch romcom, so it didn't actually have so much to do the drama in particular.
The characters were all really loveable, the sole exception being that ballet girl. I really liked the part about the friendship between the runaway boy and the boy whose father was in debts.
I'd say that this drama is the right choice for everyone who just wants random, brainless hilarity and romance. I sure had fun enough, so I watched all the episodes straight without a break. In a few months I probably won't even remember exactly what it was about but I don't regret the time I spent watching it.
This story starts off with Yang Eun Bi - a teacher-to-be - and how she gets dumped by her boyfriend after waiting for two years for him to return from the army. While being all down and over with the world, she meets Cha Chi Su, who helps her a little bit to get revenge on her boyfriend and Choe Gang Hyeok, a friend from her father. It turns out Cha Chi Su is her student and that only after a lot of stupid things happened with him. Things get worse when her father dies and leaves his ramen shop in her care. Now the real fun can begin... She ends up living with four beautiful boys (one childhood friend, Cha Chi Su, Gang Hyeok and another student from her class) in the ramen shop.
My first impression from that drama was: Low budget. I saw a lot of gifs on tumblr and since Jeong Il U (Scheduler from 49 days) was in it, I finally decided to watch it, since the gifs were also pretty fun to look at. But still, it felt pretty low budget. One episode is only 45 minutes, some scenes really don't seem like they invested a lot of money - but still! I fell in love with the story instantly. It's a good romance story, nothing complicated. There isn't the regular villain girl you want to shoot on the moon and the side guy isn't overly dramatic when he realizes that he doesn't get the girl. Even though the storyline of rich-guy-loves-poor-girl-parent-doesn't-like-it didn't get boring. Because this parent was totally different from all the mighty, scheming parents we've seen in other shows. He was just a comedy-dad, but still very strict on who his son can marry or can't marry.
So, what makes this low budget drama so good? First of all, the lovely characters I mentioned above. Then the stereotypical story that still feels fresh. I feel like they used totally different things to create the atmosphere and tell a story, we all already know. It's like a good remake of any comedymovie we know.
And I also really like the chemistry between the characters. They feel like friends and they all have their own freaky-problem.
This drama is really good to relax, get a break and forget how awful the world can be. It's just funny and was made good. I even liked the ending. There are touching scenes and very funny scenes. I think anybody can enjoy it. For me, it was one of the best dramas from last year so far.
