I LOVED Pasta. It was beautiful and funny and just aDORKable. The main female lead is very determined and very stubborn but she doesn't do it with an intention to be difficult or impairing and is actually very sweet. The main male lead (eee!!! I love this guy!!) is just awesome by nature. He's hot-tempered and controlling and likes to see things his way but has a soft spot for those around read more him. The acting was straight on and VERY cute and VERY natural.

I found myself singing along with the OSTs so much my mom got so annoyed and threatened to unplug the computer if I didn't stop said singing. The music flowed to the scenes, but i will say you;ll get distracted by the story more so than the OST, however it's still really awesome.

This story has awesome side characters and very attention grabbing side stories. The nonchalant AND aggressive jealousy was a sight to see. You grow an attachment to all the characters and you really take a feel for them whether you love, hate, whether want to throttle them, stuff them neatly into a bag of cotton balls, or pinch their cheeks just hug them! :)

In Conclusion: This drama has become one of my ForeverFavorites

I loved this. I was 1/2 in love with Lee Sun Gyun after Coffee Prince but Pasta has sealed my fate. He is such a great actor. I love it when a facial expression can say more than words and he's really perfect at that skill. Chef Choi is a complex man and at times, very tough to take. Lee Sun Gyun made him lovable as well. Gong Hyo Jin did a read more great job. Her character is strong, talented and ready to break out. I liked how their romance brought out the best in each other. Pasta is great fun to watch. For me, it's up there among my favorites. I give it an 8 because the plot was lacking but I think the chemisty between the leads more than makes up for the loss.

Both dramas have the same director, screen writer and lead actor, so while watching you might get the same feeling.

But that's not it. Both dramas don't focus on the romance directly. In "Pasta" it is about working in a restaurant, while in "Miss Korea" it is about working out to be Miss Korea and managing a cosmetic company.

Beside the lead actor, Lee Sun Gyun, actors Lee Sung Min and Choi Jae Hwan also acted in both dramas as supporting roles.

they have the same background story. The head chef/boss doesn't permit office/kitchen romance and in the end the boss falls for an employee. :)

    I started watching this because I'm a Lee Sun Gyun fan, however I hate dramas where the male lead domineers over the female lead so...end of story.

    I do not particularly like Gong Hyo Jin & Lee Sun Gyun who I understand are the lead roles in this drama.

    I would like to watch for the supporting cast. Can anyone who has seen it let me know if the supporting actors have adequate screen time or is it predominantly the leads focused on. No spoilers please.

      If you want GHJ-Awesomeness you should rather watch Greatest Love or Crush and Blush or Biscuit Teacher and Star Candy but Pasta is okay as well xD

    I decided to watch it because of Lee Sun Gyun who seemed very good in Coffee Prince, but what I don't understand is how come this drama got such low rates than Coffee Prince. Such a shame!
    I loved this drama, probably because I am a food lover and I like to dump curbs in my stomach and I like Pasta a lottt.... and the romance part, working in a restaurant, environment in a working place, lives of chefs, lives of others were portrayed in a very meaningful way. Love it!! The OSTs are amazing!!
    One of the most favorite moment of the drama was in the last part of episode 15 when the chef threw in the towel for what he had done. So many favorite moments... finished the series in 2 days :D. This is so getting all the 5stars from me ;)

    For anyone hesitant to watch this drama: The male lead is not a chauvinist. Yes, he is an egotistical control freak, but he isn't a sexist jerk. The reason he initially fires all of the women is because he is terrified of falling in love as he was once hurt very badly in a relationship. His actions were most definitely wrong, (and I really don't get why the women didn't just sue him) but don't let the first 2 eps fool you; he knows women are most definitely capable of being awesome chefs ;)
