I can't believe the season is already over! Losing two episodes due to Yoon Doo Joon's unexpected enlistment was definitely a major blow, and I do wish we'd gotten to experience the payoff of the story a bit more, but to be honest I'm still happy with the season overall.

I loved the framework of having the parallel storylines telling Ji Woo and Dae Yeong's college and present day experiences. Given the way their relationship unfolded, it was clever and appropriate to put equal weight on both, and they managed to paint both pictures enjoyably at the same time. The supporting characters were great too, especially the hilarious group of friends from their college days.

The plot did seem to lose its way a little bit in the middle, and I imagine if the creative team knew that they'd be losing two episodes at the end, they may have tightened things up a bit. I wish they had, because as much as I enjoyed the characters, there were too many loose ends and unanswered questions at the end of it all.

That said, the actors did a good job of salvaging the characters despite the issues and surprises happening with the plot. I saw a lot of criticism online of Baek Jin Hee as the female lead, but I really don't understand why. She was adorable, and if I compare the three seasons of this show altogether, to me she was the most relatable so far. And Yoon Doo Joon was perfect as Goo Dae Yeong, as usual. The role seems basically designed for him. (Was it? Probably? I don't know.)

My favorite performance, though, was Lee Joo Woo as Ji Woo's sister, Seo Yeon. At first I was kind of turned off by how similar the character felt to her role in Waikiki previously, but she quickly grew on me as the writing revealed more nuances of the character. She seems well suited to both dramatic and comedic elements. I'm looking forward to what she'll do next.

Anyway, for fans of the Let's Eat series and for anyone who wants to watch a lighthearted drama with a sweet storyline and mouthwatering food scenes, I do recommend this one.

If you enjoyed the Let's Eat shows or enjoy watching food you will most likely enjoy (the majority of) this season too. The characters and romance are so sweet. Dae Young, the main character in all 3 Let's Eat shows is cool and kind. The supporting characters are fun to watch. I love that we get to see Dae Young's past and find out how he became the foodie that he is. There is no mystery sub plot in this the as in the previous seasons. It focuses more on real life issues - both in current day and flashbacks to college life.

The food scenes are a step up from Season 2. Almost every food scene is mouthwatering and delightful. I love how they go on forever and that there is always sort of a second act to each scene. Just when you think it's winding down you find out there's more coming.

Of the 3 seasons, I enjoyed this about as much as Season 1 - which was a lot. The fact that the last 2 episodes were cut unexpectedly did hurt it. I waver about rating it 9 because, if being strictly objective, the ending really falls short. But I enjoyed it overall enough to rate it a 9. I can't be totally objective because I loved the characters and how this drama made me feel too much. This show is not one I watched for the plot. Each episode just makes me feel good - watching the college friendships and shenanigans, the crushes, and the enticing food scenes. It's cute and funny and warm. I liked seeing the characters interacting and having fun together. I could just watch any episode and enjoy it on it's own without worrying about what happens next.

But the ending will probably bother a lot of people because it is obvious they didn't have time to tie it all up. That is really my only complaint about it. The last episode was a let down. It is a shame because otherwise it was great.
