both food related, birth twists, disorientated family. Both leads are talented and work their way up to become great chefs/bakers. King of baking is more inspirational whereas Feast of the gods focus on revenge a little more.

Some actors in King of Baking also in feast of the gods.

Both are dramas about a young man that endures many hardships and setbacks as he pursues his dreams, but always remains optimistic and never gives up.

Deals with the same plot of an illegitimate child brought home to a rich family. Also includes the rivalry of two brothers and an evil mother who favors one of the brothers. The main character takes revenge against his brother and mother, like Five Fingers. Overall, the plot is the same, but I personally liked Baker King, Kim Tak Goo a little bit more.

They both tell the story of a man that faces allot of pain to reach their dreams. The feeling of the drama is also the same. But Kim Tak Goo is a better drama imo.

Yoon Shi Yoon who plays Enrique is a wonderful actor. He is able to emit such a range and variety of emotions. Both dramas have fun parts, but deal with serious themes in life. One deals with a young lady who had emotionally and physically withdrawn after unfair hardships from others, while another deals with a young man who continues to persevere and fight on despite unfair treatment from others.

Both dramas are about a child who was separated from his wealthy family. Only the circumstances are different. And eventually this main character happens to come back to his real parents..

Both dramas have love triangle at first. And also after looking all those fancy cakes/pasteries, you might be interested to see the different types of bread brought to you in Baker King.

They both have very likeable main characters who capture your heart, and the side characters are well developed. They're both well rounded, and invoke a spectrum of emotions - happiness, tears, laughter, etc. They're both amazing dramas. While they're both long, they're also entertaining from the first episode to the last.

Both theme about food. Bread love and dream is more focus on relationship and drama than Tenno no Ryoriban. But both also has a strong theme about family.
Recommended by Dandelion
Both are about baking and pursuing a dream. This drama has a more heavy conflict with the main character being an illegitimate child of a Bread company CEO.
