Coffee House (korean drama)

Lee Jin Soo is a talented novelist who shot to stardom at a young age after writing a series of bestsellers. He finds two potential love interests in Seo Eun Young, a publishing executive, and Kang Seung Yeon, the daughter of the Page One Coffee Shop who is studying for the civil service examination and later becomes Jin Soo's secretary.
After so long, i've come out of my lazy shell (just for a while) to write about this drama that got me hooked for a few days. there were so many twists and turns, and it was so complex with all the relationship problems. and i usually don't go for that, but i was attracted to this series because of the leads as well.
the cast was superb in my opinion, all did a wonderful job here, i was frustrated at times though, as i felt that maybe it was getting a little slow occassionally but other than that, it was great. and i was really satisfied with the ending, because of my bias i guess. heehe i like this particular actress so he ended up with her, although i'm not gonna let the cat out of the bag. it was sad at times too, and hilarious at others. this is more a comedy romance, i feel, but at the same time, it makes me think it's realistic too. jin soo was fabulous, his role so eccentric and kang ji hwan managed to pull it off. that role suited him perfectly hehe
for a while, around ep 12, i thought the series had ended and i thought it was like an open end and that made me really frustrated as i thought i had seen 18 eps so i confirmed and voila, it was 18 eps. so i sat down again to watch the rest of the eps hehehe
well i was quite engrossed and enjoyed it myself. it's all online and complete with english subs. i watched on dramacrazy, it has links there. hope you enjoy it.
