Coffee House

This series is the second drama of Full House series. It may not exactly be a sequel to the supposedly epic Full House Kdrama, but it is just as good in its own way.  Even though Coffee House did not receive as much attention as Full House, it’s a great series to watch and I love it anyway.

  • Title: 커피하우스 / Coffee House
  • Genre: Comedy, Romance
  • Episodes: 18
  • Broadcast network: SBS
  • Synopsis: Lee Jin Soo made it big after writing several thriller novels and establishing himself as a talented novelist. He works for Seo Eun Young, the owner of the biggest publishing company in Korea, and has a long-time friendship with her. Jin Soo has lots of fans, especially female ones, and he seems to be the perfect match for any woman… but what no one knows is that he is actually a bit weird and sarcastic, has lots of strange habits, and holds a dark secret. The one who has to cope with him and his habits is his secretary, Kang Seung Yeon, who begged him for this job to become a pro instead of the below-average girl that she really is. On top of that, there is also the return of Han Ji Won, Eun Young’s ex-fiance, whom she despises. Ji Won tries to win Eun Young back, but she has her eyes set on Jin Soo.

This series is not your typical kdrama, although, yes, it does have a love triangle.  However, believe me when I say that this drama had me guessing throughout.  I’m pretty good at predicting kdramas, especially love triangles.  However with this series I could not figure out who the male lead would end up with until I cheated and did a little research.  Honestly, I didn’t care who he ended up with because both female characters are awesome.

By the way, this drama is funny hilarious.  It’s laugh out loud funny, although it’s not really supposed to be all comedy all the time.  There are a whole lot of moments that make you smile and the ever so occasional moment that will make you crack up no matter how hard you you try to hold it in.

There may have been a few people who complained about the ending, but I don’t know what they are talking about.  It was not disappointing and, in my opinion, was rather satisfactory.  What I’m trying to say is that a lot of events are shown during the ending, so chances are you will at least like something from the many things that happen.

Anyways, this series is different.  I absolutely love it and highly recommend it.

My Rating: (4.5/5)

–Mini SpoilerYou actually get to see the house from Full House in this series, but only once.  They probably did it to tease the fans of the first drama.
