Talented chefs Bong Joo and Sung Chan were raised like brothers after Sung Chan was orphaned and taken in by Bong Joo’s family. Bong Joo’s family owns a famous traditional Korean restaurant and claims descent from the last royal chef of the Joseon Dynasty. Bong Joo assumes that as the eldest, he will be the one to take over his family’s restaurant and marry Joo Hee when his father makes a surprising announcement about a special cooking contest!

Sung Chan is seen as a threat by some because of his youth, talent, creativity and non-conforming ways. Feeling sorry for him, Joo Hee tries to help him. Discovering the truth about their great-grandfather causes a crisis for Bong Joo, but he later becomes even more determined to be a success while Sung Chan decides to leave. Sung Chan becomes a food peddler, specializing in the freshest and best ingredients in traditional Korean cuisine. Will he ever become a chef again? Will they ever become united as “brothers”?

My Comment :

Despite the high ratings that this drama earned, it just does not really suit my taste. In my opinion, the first few episodes of this drama were really thrilling and fast paced, especially the parts when Sung Chan competed with Bong Joo. However, I felt that the storyline became slower from the episode where Sung Chan ran away to become food peddler across the country. As the result, I skipped some parts that I thought was boring by fast forwarding.

In the end, the only thing that made me keep on watching this drama was the cast. Kim Rae Won and the other supporting actors portrayed their characters really well. His chemistry with Nam Sang Mi was  also great. It’s nice to see Kim Rae Won again. I love him in Attic Cat. However, his dramas after that were really not that interesting for me to watch until GOURMET.

    The Synopsis:

    Kyung Min is an orphan who was raised by his grandparents. His parents died many years ago in an accident. Both his grandparents love him very much. His grandmother especially so and accords to everything he does. As a result he is spoiled and immature. He is a law student and lives in his own apartment funded by his rich grandparents money. Kyung Min likes a girl called Hye Ryun who is also rich and studying law with him. Hye Ryun pays Kyung Min no attention.

    Jung Eun comes from a humble background. Her father is a policeman and her mother a housewife. Jung Eun is self-proclaimed to be not very bright and has failed the employment examination repeatedly. As a result, it is difficult for her to find a job. However, she remains optimistic about her future.

    One day, Jung Eun’s family decides to move to another town, away from Seoul. Jung eun is shocked and disapproves of the idea, however, under the patriarchal society of Korea, she has no choice. She secretly rents an attic room in an old building, however, before she can pay the deposit her immature younger brother finds her bank account booklet and steals the hard-earned money she has earned from her daily paper deliveries. Jung Eun is outraged and worries that her desire to remain in Seoul is shattered.

    Jung Eun and Hye Ryun are friends from High School. One day Jung Eun borrowed Hye Ryun’s library card and used the university’s library’s facilities. She accidentally takes Kyung Min’s seat and drools over his books while she slept, tired from studying. Kyung Min returns to his seat disgusted at her actions. Jung Eun apologises and leaves. Later, Kyung Min’s friend accidentally takes his folder without informing Kyung Min. Kyung Min, believing that Jung Eun stole his folder, goes and chases Jung Eun down and demands she open her bag. Jung Eun defends herself by stating that she did not steal his folder. Their verbal disagreement turns in physical as Kyung Min grabs her bag and the contents are spilt out. KYung Min realises his mistake and quickly gathers the things back in her back. Jung Eun walks off in a huff.

    Soon, Jung Eun returns Hye Ryun’s card and they have lunch in the cafeteria. AS they chat, this was incidentally seen by KYung Min. Kyung Min forms an idea. A few days later, he sees Jung Eun in the University park and decides to befriend her in order for Jung Eun to whisper favourable words to Rye Hyun. Kyung Min deceptively slips that he is Hye Ryun’s friends. Knowing this, Jung Eun reasons that since he is HYe Ryun’s friend, then he cant be too harmful. Due to Kyung Min’s regrettable attitude, Jung Eun decides to trust Kyung Min and they become friends. As they get to know each other, Jung Eun pours out her finance woes to Kyung Min due to her brother’s theft and the resulting inability to pay the deposit for the attic house. Kyung Min, keen to be nice to Jung Eun, lends his money to Jung Eun.

    My Comment :

    One of my all-time favorite K-Dramas. Love the story, the characters the casts and the OSTs. I could not remember how many times I rewatched it. I became like Jung Da Bin and Kim Rae Won because of this drama, although the first drama of Kim Rae Won that I watched was My Love Patzzi. I tried to find other Jung Da Bin’s works after watched this drama.

    It was so sad that Jung Da Bin ended her life tragically in 2007.
