Kdramas has always been engaged with so many different ways, like this series.
I enjoyed watching how to cook Chinese food but my favourite part is in this series when the gang group appears. Jo Jae Yoon as Oh Maeng Dal plays the boss’s right hand. He is very funny and authentic as a thug. Jang Hyuk is always superb!
If you want to watch a rom-com with a lot of fun, a lovely couple and amazing thugs you definitely have to watch this series.
This drama tells a story of love, survival with a focus on a star chef who fell from the top chef in the best Chinese restaurant in Korea to a tiny kitchen of a local diner down on its luck.
Chef Seo Poong (Lee Joon Ho) was once a star chef and worked at the best Chinese restaurant. His popularity faded and he eventually wound up working at a small, failing Chinese restaurant. Meanwhile, Doo Chil Sung (Jang Hyuk) is the owner of a building. He is an ex-gang member and he was in jail for 5 years.
