    Really excited for this one! Torn between junho and jang Hyuk though… I love both of them… Jung ryeo won is just one of my all time fave, now I don’t know who I want her to pair with in this movie… sometimes seeing great casts all together in one drama can be difficult.

    One word to describe this drama was “hilarious”. I watched the first 5 minutes and saw the young chef cooking like he was performing in a circus. It was very funny.

    Will the writer will give us a twist? Because usually this writer pairing the lead woman with charmingly annoying guy. The woman can end up with one of the guy or may be they all will be best friends & co-worker in that restaurant. I love all the cast and lead cast, but i’ll cheer up for Mr. Gangster.
