Must watch i would say :) 10/10 *

I loved Lee Sun Gyun so much in this more than that in Coffee Prince. His character was simply superb though he was portrayed as an angry young chef, he has performed so well where i really did not feel irritated but loved the character more. His walking style - filled with attitude has no words to describe WOW !!!!! made me go crazy read more for him. especially when he punishes the cooks including his pair, was hilarious.

Before watching this series i thought that the lead pair may not get along with each other as Gong Hyo Jin gives me more of a calm and subtle feel - more like a noona/unnie. But she proved me wrong - the chemistry between the leads is simply superb and gives a feeling of a very young and matured love relationship. they have both made fall in for them as a couple too :). Besides his arrogant attitude towards others, his soft love towards Hyo Jin is adorable. Their love bond was quite different from the usual misunderstanding that happens with every other love story.

And also the Owner of La Safera - Alex is simply admirable. he's such a gentle man both in competing with Sun Gyun (Chef) to win Huo Jin's heart and as a supportive friend of Lee Ha Nui (F. Chef).

Choi Jae Hwan or no one else. he's the best for this kitchen assistant role. the scene where chef and him eat lollipops together was cute and pleasant. even guys eat lollipops ??? :) cute !

Last but never the least - No Min Woo (i love this guy). His hairstyle is WOW...!!! have no words to describe but jus to keep admiring it in all his scenes. he so handsome and watta complexion he's got... ;) so glowy... OMG !!!! don't take me wrong, but would definitely say that he was like an eye capturing element/MODEL in the kitchen; no wonder tat Alex's elder sis has a crush on him.

Talking about the plot, make me think how can a kitchen story have so many interesting episodes which were never boring. I really learn't lots of tips in cooking the dishes that they showed. Ain't the quantity of food/pasta served on the plates too less ????

Such a nice ROMEDY :) worth watching it more than once. i'm watching each episode 3 times a week - never got bored ans would never get tired in future too :) though i have watched only 17 episodes, the climax is quite predictable i'm eagerly looking forward to watch it till the end. but i don want this series to get over :(

In short, its worth watching more than once. i would recommend this to everyone who wants to have fun and enjoy the pleasant and strong love bond between lead couple.

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

Make a Recommendation More recs (10)Recommendations

Both dramas concentrate on a specific culinary area.
Both teach you a lot about their respective domain.
Both revolve around a master in his field that is forced to accept an unwanted disciple - a headstrong woman, who gives her all to learn.
Both dramas are rather slow and have a certain "Indie" feeling about them.
If you enjoyed one of them, you'd enjoy the other one too.
Recommended by Valier
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.

    Sun Gyun's character in this was just ansolutely awesome! Like, what else can you say about Choi Hyun Wook. Loved this drama, because one, food, and two, it's not all romance.

    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 ;)
