Cast Character
coffee-cast-1Lee Jinsoo (32years old/Author)/Kang  Ji Hwan

A successful writer who writes several best-selling books in his early ages.
Everybody loves him because he’s good looking and has good manner. Of course, he has good manner, kind, humorous. But, just a few people know that he makes more smile if he feels bad, shows more courtesy if he doesn’t like some person, spends more money if he wants to leave a place more early. Actually, he is very hard to please, for example even a cup of coffee, there is no café to make him satisfied with. So, he studies himself how to make coffee, then, he only drinks his own coffee.
Why this kind of difficult person keep contracts with just one publishing company?
The reason is Eunyoung who is difficult to deal with just like him. When Eunyoung, who is workaholic and perfectionist, pushs him to finish the job early, though he shows temper, he still believes her ability. That’s why their relation can continue.

By chance, he happens to enter some shabby coffee shop in suburb. The name of coffee shop ”Caffee Palace” also makes him uncomfortable. It’s amateur name. Surely, the coffee shop is far from professionalism including the barista. The barista looks like a jobless person at first sight.
But, by some absurd reason, Jinsoo happens to hire her as a secretary. Frankly speaking, he doesn’t need secretary. At first time, he doesn’t expect anything from her. One thing he want:  she doesn’t bother him. But, this stupid naive girl want to be his real secretary. Do you want to be real professional person? Then, I will make you.

coffee-cast-2Kang Seungyun (25 years old. Daughter of coffee shop “Caffee Palace” )
Ham Eun Jung

She says modestly “ I am a average Korean woman in twenties”. But, to say frankly, she is under average. There is no sign that her life turns to be bright. But, she still doesn’t know the real world. So, she doesn’t know there will be no sign of good news to her life. But she lives positively while dreaming that some day she will pass the governmental official test.

She has spent life like that before Jinsoo appear in front of her at the her coffee shop , “Caffee Palace” which is falling down. She happens to feel attractiveness to Jinsoo’s kindness, then without deep thinking, directly become a Jinsoo’s secretary by friend’s recommendation.
At the first time, she taught she can start her career as a right hand of famous author, but, Jinsoo has extra-ordinary personality which she never met before.
“If you can’t, devote yourself to the last energy. That’s the way of professional” That is Jinsoo’s sophistry. But, anyway, why I must do this? Without any chance of protest, her life already involved with Jinsoo. Get into the mud together with me, it’s not my fault. It’s you who hired me. She thinks she is academic girl, but actually, it is not. She acts first before thinking. She always regrets after accident happen. One good thing for her is that she catches the meaning of happening after she takes hard time.

coffee-cast-3Seo Eunyoung (31 years old, President of publishing company/Owner of “Café Bene”)/Park Si Yeon

President of best publishing company in Korea.
The publishing company which was established by her grandfather inherited to her after her father died. She enlarged the company size, and entered book-café business, then made it to nation-wide franchise. Indeed, she is now on the way of success. She is sexy also and frequently visits foreign country. She smiles herself while dreaming her picture is showed in Time magazine cover page as one of  most success
woman in the country. She has a few things to hate : cat, exercise, ex-fiance and Jinsoo. Jinsoo is representative author of her company. Then, they work together. Both have same thinking, that is, only kind but incapable person is most hatred. So, even though they don’t like each other, they believe each other’s ability.
But, Eunyoung always think this is unfair – both has bad personality, then why other person think Jinsoo is good man while Eunyoung is some kind of bad witch.

Now, their uncertain relation-friends or enemy? – faces extra ordinary situation.
The first thing, the ex-fiance of her whom she hates more than Jinsoo moved to next building to her office. Then he talks non sense ‘ Let’s start our love again” The second thing, Jinsoo’s new secretary, something strange, her presence make Eunyoung uncomfortable. Now, Jinsoo’s boring humor sounds funny and his working style becomes curious to her.

coffee-cast-4Han Jiwon (36 years old, Consulting company director / Ex-fiance of Eunyoung) / Jung Woong In.

He thinks himself that , though bad fate disturbed their relation, his soul partner is Eunyoung. Fatal love between them must be finished as a happy ending.
As a born rich  but a  single minded person , he feels the world move around him. He left Eunyoung for Eunyoung’s friend.
But, he still thinks that Eunyoung is too jealousy and doesn’t understand male’s inner feeling. So, after break-off, he stayed Hongkong to earn time to smooth his wounded mind, then, he decided to forgive Eunyoung, then back to Seoul.

    I love this drama, i’m getting interested by each episode. I love Kang Ji Hwan and Park Si Yeon. What a romantic drama. They so match together, what a lovely couple. And please tell me that in the end they’ll became couple (i only watch till epsd 10). I hate Eun Yeong’s ex. I don’t hate Kang Seung Yeon but just feel bored at her careless scene. At first to 4 episode it almost all talk about Seung Yeon, and i almost decided to stop watching it. But next episode which is more focus on Ji Hwan and Si Yeon’s relationship makes me stay still.

    This is a great drama, I can’t wait for the ninth episode to come out next week and be subbed. Kang Ji Hwan, Park Si Yeon, Eun Jung from T-ara, and the rest of the cast are doing a good job presenting the drama. I was hooked after watching the first episode. I can’t until to see what happens next in Coffee House. =)
