Flower Boy Ramyun Shop

Yang Eun Bi is a University student preparing for her civil service exam with the dream of being a high school teacher. She accidentally encounters Cha Chi Soo, the an arrogant son of the biggest food conglomerate in Korea. Both of them ends up working at a ramyun shop operated by the lazy Choi Kang Hyuk.

This romantic comedy deals with "pretty boys," who with good looks and individuality, operate a ramyun shop with lively college girls and experience the happenings of daily life.

Production Credits
Director: Jung Jung Hwa (정정화)
Screenwriter: Yoon Nan Joong (윤난중

A highly recommended drama. The story line had a bit of mixture of the hit dramas - Boys over flowers, Secret Garden and Biscuit Teacher. The recipe was well prepared and this drama turns out to be a tasteful bowl of Ramyun. Coincidentally this drama is linked to one of my favorite food (ramyun).

Tasty Base soup (Script)
This is a romantic comedy and I did not expect this drama to have a good storyline. To my surprise, the scriptwriter Yoon Nan Joong manage to sustain my interest in this drama. It was a fun journey to watch as the story unfolds. In every episode, they have a theme and the story will revolve around that theme.
