Hail to the grandmother of kdramas with cross-dressing heroines. This is a follow up hit for Yoon Eun Hye and the drama that made me look at Gong Yoo as an oppa. *wink “Coffee Prince” developed in a feel good manner where the lead man battled out the possibility of his affection to a fellow guy not knowing that the heroine was a real woman in disguise.
Coffee Prince cemented my growing fondness towards Yoon Eun Hye. *giggles I liked her in Goong, and I like her even more here. The music was so refreshing and the cast interaction was also dynamic.
It was something new when it was aired hence the rave because we saw an unconventional romance between a strong-willed heroine who has to pretend she was a man to secure a job in a coffee shop for her family.
The scenes where Gong Yoo was trying to reconcile his feelings with a guy come what may were hilariously interpreted and will definitely put a smile on your face. It was so cute that Gong Yoo’s character disregarded everything and was okay to admit that he could possibly be a homosexual due to his growing feelings on his pretending-to-be-a-man lead girl.
This cross-dressing heroine and coffee shop owner’s love ride slayed the ratings with the unique premise on how their romance was imagined. It is also one of those dramas where the lead man was presented as someone who wanted to fulfill his woman’s dreams first because that’s one the best definitions of love a man can gift her woman.
This is a must-watch grandpa classic that will not lose its appeal even after a few years from go by. How the love grew between the lead characters was simply laid and yet so affecting and definitive. If you are currently having a bitter heart because of a failed relationship it can surely disarm you and walk you through appreciating love again.
