The way to the heart is through the stomach in the scrumptious 2010 MBC romantic comedy Pasta. Quirky actress Kong Hyo Jin (Thank You) brings new meaning to the word "chef" in this romantic hit, while Lee Seon Gyun (Coffee Prince) acts up a charismatic storm as the head chef with a chip on his shoulder. Pasta co-stars Miss Korea Honey Lee (Partner) as the ex-girlfriend, and Alex of Clazziquai as the restaurant owner with eyes for Kong Hyo Jin. The drama's chefs also include Lee Hyung Chul (City Hall), Kim Tae Ho (My Precious Child), and No Min Woo and Hyun Woo from the band 24/7.
Spunky aspiring pasta chef Yoo Kyung (Kong Hyo Jin) has finally worked her way up from kitchen assistant to junior chef at a high-end Italian restaurant. Her happiness doesn't last long though as the demanding new head chef Hyun Woo (Lee Seon Gyun) comes in and fires Yoo Kyung and all the other female chefs on his first day of work. Yoo Kyung manages to get her job back, but the drama is far from over. Hyun Woo brings in his own team of Italy-trained chefs to work opposite the original Korea-trained staff, inciting a heated rivalry. Sparks are flying left and right in the kitchen, but feuding soon leads to romance!
