Pasta – Final Review

Finally I got some time to write my review. So busy and exhausted in last few days (T.T)

Pasta starts rather slow-paced, and like I said on my first impression, I don’t like the story telling style. It killing me to watch this “light” drama with “close attention”. Each characters’ background was neither explained clearly, nor their relationship.

Brief Summary

Seo Yoo Kyung is a newly promoted cook assistant in La Sfera. She finds herself being fired by the new chef, Choi Hyun Wook, only because she is a female cook. Persistent of going back to the kitchen, she practices hard making the most simplest pasta, aglio e olio (pasta with garlic and olive oil). She gets her job back after successfully auditioned by the Chef (blind-foldedly, of course).

Meanwhile, the new Chef is bringing his team from Italy. He tries to change the kitchen values / menus with his Italian ways. This pissed off the Korean cooks, who have been working longer than him. The kitchen is divided to 2 faction, Italian team and Korean team (although all of them are Koreans), and brings dispute to the kitchen. More

Pasta – 1st Impression

I watched Pasta simply because I like pasta, and I thought that a drama which won Best Couple Award  (2010 MBC Drama Award) couldn’t be that bad. On the first episode, I love the idea about saving-a-goldfish-although-it-only-has-2-seconds-memory-long scene. I also like the atmosphere they build when all the chef are busy preparing foods. (Never imagine that a high-class restaurant kitchen is really like a high-speed-dish-maker-factory kind of thing).

The female lead character, Seo Yoo Kyung (Gong Hyo Jin) is somewhat typical, slow but diligent and persistent kind of girl. And the guy lead character, Choi Hyun Wook (Lee Sun Gyun) is not that special either (except for the saving goldfish part, I don’t know why I impressed with that), he’s good at his job and always looks down at his underlings (omo, but I love his sexy voice <3).

For those of you who are a fan of Playful Kiss series… you don’t want to miss these!!

Lately I found these Playful Kiss Special Episodes on Youtube, and… you can guess…. I’m totally a big fan of it!! 😀

The two of them are alone in one autumn Sunday morning, and Oh Ha Ni just want it to be special. So she arranges English breakfast for her husband, which turns out to be “unrecognizable” (says Baek Seung Jo).

But Baek Seung Jo appreciates what his wife had done for him, and praise her for “nice coffee”.

Playful Kiss, my personal review

Recently I was watching Playful Kiss (a.k.a Mischievous Kiss or Naughty Kiss), starred by Kim Hyun Joong and Jung So Min. This is a Korean adaptation drama of really famous manga by Tada Kaoru, Itazura na Kiss. As you can see I get hooked to it as they made really lovely couple 🙂

The story plot itself is so Japanese, about an ordinary high school girl Oh Ha Ni, who falls in love head-over-heels with the perfect guy who excels in everything, Baek Seung Jo. Sounds like a cliché, but once you watch it, you will love Oh Ha Ni character so much – she is cute and adorable, though she has to struggle in everything she does. Also, cool guy like Baek Seung Jo is my all time favorite ^_^ Pair them together, and you’ll be addicted for sure 🙂 More
