KDrama | The 1st Shop Of Coffee Prince 커피프린스 1호점

(Coffee Prince) 
Korean Drama | 2007 | 17 Episodes
Romance | Comedy | Gender Bending

Go Eun Chan (Yoon Eun Hye) is the breadwinner of her family ever since her father passed away when she was young. Her life has been very hard for she had to work multiple jobs to support her mother and her younger sister. And because she has no time to spare for herself, people often mistook her for a boy because of her tomboyish image and mannerisms.

Choi Han Kyul (Gong Yoo) is the heir of a big food company. He is handsome, charming and very laid-back. And because his grandmother wants him to take his life more seriously and settle down, she forced him to go on many blind dates.

The two met because of an attempted robbery where Eun Chan actually saved the day but Han Kyul suspected her to be an accomplice as well as mistook her for a boy. To get his grandmother's matchmaking attempts off his back, Han Kyul offered to pay Eun Chan to pretend as his gay lover. Desperate to earn more money, Eun Chan had no choice but to accept this "job". They succeeded in driving off any potential brides of Han Kyul but his grandmother retaliated by taking away his spending privileges and forced him to manage a "pigsty" of a coffee shop that is also in danger of going bankrupt. 

After taking over the old coffee shop, Han Kyul named it "Coffee Prince" and decided to hire only male baristas or "princes". Eun Chan decided to continue to hiding her true gender to get a job at the shop. As they worked together at the shop, Eun Chan and Han Kyul started to develop feelings for each other. The couple tried to deny their true feelings. Eun Chan feared that if her secret is revealed, not only will she lose her job but she would also have to leave her beloved boss' side while Han Kyul struggled to accept that he is attracted to someone of the same gender.
