Storyline

Go Eun Chan is a young woman who supports her mother and sister. Her short hair, boyish clothes, and manner often lead to her being mistaken for a young man. Laboring under this false impression, wealthy Choi Han Kyul hires her to pretend to be his "gay lover," to scare away the blind dates his grandmother has set up. Later, Han Kyul is asked to prove himself by managing a rundown coffee shop. Eun Chan maintains her false male identity to become a "Coffee Prince" employee. The charade becomes increasingly difficult as she falls in love with her boss. Han Kyul is both surprised and confused by his romantic feelings towards the "boy." Written by L. Hamre

Perfection !!
31 December 2018 | by vmtukwaSee all my reviews

I first watched this show in 2009 then again in 2010 and I am still so impressed by it .Not only is it a very good Kdrama ,its generally just a very good series/miniseries which can stand its own with any international series out there. Its a comedy (mostly of errors ,mixed up identity and confused emotions) but it has a lot of touching ,sad and heartfelt scenes. It also makes a pretty big statement about romantic love and its basis which had me thinking long after it was over
