Current Information

LSG plays a character who is schooled in the arts-music and movies and traditional yet has somewhat of a temper/attitude. This will be yet another transformation for the actor who has previously captured the hearts of the viewers through his role as
a warm and caring doctor in

In this drama, Eunhye will be a saleslady 'Go Eun-chan' of the Coffee Shop, who used to be a master of Teakwondo. In this drama, she will be a matriarch with masculine charms. Eunhye will show her tough charm as a 'Young Girl warrior'.

"The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince" is about a tomboyish girl (Eunhye) who has taken up just about every single job there is to take. She is an independant strong willed personality. On one of her part-time jobs (delivering midnight snacks) she meets the male character. Also, she will develop a love triangle with the male character and his younger cousin,
who is the boss of the coffee shop that she works at.

MANGA information :

With a foolish mother and the need to look after her younger sister, flower boy Go Eun Chan has had to give up the feminine image. It's a love story with Choi Han Kyul, who knows women well and thinks of himself as a great guy.

After accidentally being mistaken for a man, she starts working at Coffee Prince, and falls in love with the hot-tempered owner Choi Han Kyul. But Choi Han Kyul thinks she's a man, and furthermore doesn't believe in love. So she can't confess that she's a woman, and he continues thinking that the agonized Go Eun Chan is a man. Choi Han Kyul thinks he's experiencing feelings of homosexuality towards her, and gets heartsick laugh.gif . This side of him was drawn in a risky but fun way.

The part when he discovers that Go Eun Chan is a woman is shown in an undemanding way, and the story doesn't concentrate on just these two people, but also on the other people who frequent Coffee Prince. These people are shown one by one in a natural way, and since the story isn't just about romance, I think that if you're able to read the first volume, then you'll naturally be able to read the rest of the volumes until the end.

I was expecting her to become a dream girl and have a glamorous ending.But was disappointed she was still tomboyish when she returned from Italy.
Could the 'last-cup' be altered to make me happy?
