1st Shop of Coffee Prince

Everyone is talking about Gong Yoo starring in the current drama Big, but some people might or might not know he starred in a drama called 1st   Shop of Coffee Prince ( on a side note Gong Yoo is beyond delicious and can act like it’s no one’s business).
Anyways, Gong Yoo plays as Choi Han-gyul. Then we have Yoon Eun-hye as Go Eun-chan (anything that this girl is in she pretty much owns it). I love her as an actress and she is really wonderful as this character.
For a synopsis, here you go

You.Are. Fuckin.Welcome

What makes this drama work:

·         FREAKIN GONG YOO!  Besides being an awesome Asian man candy, he really played his role phenomenally. I really enjoyed his character because he didn’t come across as the typical rich man arrogant douchebag attitude. He wanted to excel and reach his goal to go back to America and tried to handle it like an owner of a business.
·         Yoon Eun-hye really plays Go Chan so well. You can’t help but empathize about her problems, her triumphs and her heartbreak.
·         The coffee boys are very entertaining and endearing. It's wonderful that the writer was able to incorporate their back story and their happy endings.
·         Lee Sun-gyun as Choi Han-seong. I enjoyed watching him. I loved his character. I’m actually trying to find more of his work.
·         Chae Jung-an as Han Yoo-joo. I never encountered a character like her and I think she handled her character very well.

I like the premise of this show. A rich guy who rather build at legoland than take over the coffee business. I love his affection for his family and friends. When we are first introduced to him he really appears to be spoiled because he rather hang out with his friends when he gets back from the states. Grandma wants him to be responsible and due to her circumstance she wants it to happen soon.  Yoon Hye is the hard working girl who works her ass off to provide for her mother and sister who don’t really do much to help out. Strike that, mom does help but rather spend the money than be frugal. Young sis is going to school and trying to make it as an idol singer. Anyone who is introduced to Yoon Hye can’t help but smile at her presence and admire her strong work ethic. She really is endearing and a wonderful compliment to Gong Yoo’s character. All in all if you are looking for a funny, hot as hell kiss scenes, meaningful moments and scenes that make you jump your seat and say HOT DAMN! That right there is fucking LOVE!

 I give it 10 of 10 woo woos. Seriously people its freakin Gong Yoo.
