A great number of TV and film stars also owe their current popularity to the success of TV dramas. This page is devoted to providing some subjective reviews of the better-known dramas.

Coffee Prince is pure fun, and its popularity shows that many Koreans agree with me. The premise is that Go Eun Chan Yoon Eun-hye, Palaceby default the head of her family after her father died when she was 16, is often mistaken for a boy.
She wears her hair fairly short, dresses ambiguously, knows Tae Kwon Do, does delivery work, and eats like a horse. He hires Eun Chan, whom he takes for male, to pretend to be his gay lover. Behaving outrageously in various hotel lobbies, the two scare off all the women his grandmother sends him.
Grandmother then raises the stakes.
If Han Gyeol won't marry or go to work for the family company, he'll have to support himself; she takes away his care and gives him notice of eviction for his expensive rooftop apartment before he agrees to manage Coffee Prince, a rundown coffee shop in a student district, and increase its profits.
Eun Chan wheedles him into hiring "him," and before long they find themselves powerfully drawn to each other. His interest in a cute boy understandably disturbs Han Gyeol, who reacts as if he were a closeted gay man: Why is Han Gyeol so reluctant to marry?
Several online articles I've seen describe him as a "playboy," but he's never shown dating women. As the series begins, Yoo Joo has just returned from a long stay in New York, where she was involved professionally and romantically with a man called DK.
Now she's back and wants to start over with Han Seong, who reasonably enough doesn't quite trust her.
But she's not in love with Han Gyeol either. As usual in a series, Coffee Prince includes a constellation of secondary characters, ranging from Eun Chan's feckless mother Park Won-sook, Tomato and the wacky butcher, Mr.
Han Gyeol's old friend Chin Ha Rim Kim Dong-wookwho fancies himself a ladies' man but also seems interested in Eun Chan; the hunky but slow Hwang Min Yeop Lee Eon, who tragically died in a motorcycle accident inwho's in love with Eun Chan's sister and pursues her doggedly despite her best efforts to drive him away; the mysterious Master of Waffles No Jeon Ki Kim Jae-wookwho keeps muttering in Japanese; and Manager Hong, the slovenly manager of the shop, whom Grandmother keeps on as co-manager to keep Han Gyeol on his toes.
Writers Lee Jeong-ah and Jang Hyeon-joo keep things steaming along entertainingly, and for the most part they keep the comedy in character, without much of the pointless slapstick or asides that disrupt some comedy-dramas.
I'm also forever grateful that they never resort to a car or other accident to engender a crisis and permit tearful reconciliations and confessions, as in so many dramas. Some early plot points, like Eun Chan's supersensitive nose for smells, are introduced early on and then forgotten; on first meeting Eun Chan, Ha Rim calls "him" My Chan and exclaims over "his" cuteness, but after a few episodes he's chasing after young women and trying to give Eun Chan advice on handling the babes.
The story doesn't really come together until Han Gyeol and Eun Chan begin to fall in love. Most writers would, I think, have let Han Gyeol know that Eun Chan was a girl after no more than one episode of homosexual panic, but Lee and Jang stretch it over several episodes, and make Han Gyeol's anxiety wholly convincing.
He sees a clueless old doctor, who gives him medicine to cure him of his tendencies. So stop seducing me. She refuses his evasion at first, then gives in.
In voice over, each then tells us that even if it only means being a brother, he won't have to leave the other's side. But still Han Gyeol runs hot and cold, firing Eun Chan and then running to get "him" back.
Han Gyeol tells Eun Chan a major family secret. Sitting behind him, where he can't see her, she stretches out her hands and mimes embracing him, comforting him, because she doesn't dare to touch him.
Yoon puts immense longing into that gesture. As more and more of the other characters are let in on the secret of Eun Chan's real sex, the tension builds.Misc thoughts, memories, proto-essays, musings, etc. And on that dread day, the Ineffable One will summon the artificers and makers of graven images, and He will command them to give life to their creations, and failing, they and their creations will be dedicated to the flames.
