It’s a story of a woman who dreams of becaming a successful first-class cook.
The Italian restaurant-themed drama will be about marriage stories for women who are in their 30s and also about success stories on women who wants to be chefs. Alex's role will be a customer who has a specialty in foods (somewhat like food critics) called Kim San.
Lee Seon-kyun plays the prickly head chef, while Gong Hyo-jin is an assistant. Lee’s character (sigh) harbors a painful past that makes him unwilling to recognize the talents of women chefs (what a creative excuse for being a sexist?). This leads him to clash with Gong repeatedly in the kitchen as they get off to a rocky start. Gong says that although she has filmed with Lee for a month, there have been so many scenes with him tormenting her that she still can’t quite look him in the eye.
