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 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.

I started watching this drama because I read the fantastic reviews people wrote here about it, so I started really exciting, expecting something like Coffee Prince meets the kitchen, but I got something really different.



This is a great drama, the characters are great and I loved that it actually did have a lot about food because a lot of dramas, like You're Beautiful, Only You and Heartstrings are about a certain subject but you never get to actually see the writers exploding that.



The thing that really bothered me about this one that made me not like this drama so much was the female lead. She had no personality whatsoever, always letting everyone push her around, even her love interest. I hate that she was alway "Yes, Chef. Yes, Chef. Chef, chef chef chef..." I mean she never even called him by his real name, no Hyuk Woon ah, or Hyuk Woon ssi, or even Choi Hyun Wook ssi.



Also, for the sake of not spoiling I'll really just say that I hated the REAL reason (not the generic, but the one he says) of why the chef broke up with his previous partner. I don't know of it is just because I'm a hardcore feminist, or simply because I thought he was dumb but I simply hated him.



On the other hand I loved all the kitchen drama, with the main line and the pasta line, Italian vs Korean! It was so funny to see them fight for the most minimum thing, I think all that made the drama funnier to watch and lighter.



In general I really enjoyed this drama, though it isn't one of my favorites
