My Lovely Sam-Soon (2005)

My Lovely Sam-soon (2005) [Nae ireumeun Kim Sam-soon] is a South Korean television series based on the internet novel of the same title by Ji Soo-hyun, which was published on March 9, 2004. Called the Korean version of Bridget Jones’s Diary, star Kim Sun-a had to gain 15 pounds for the role. The series also stars Hyun Bin, Jung Ryeo-won and Daniel Henney. The series aired on MBC from June 1, 2005 to July 21, 2005.

The romantic comedy-drama series, My Lovely Sam-soon (2005), was a big hit, and one of the highest rated Korean drama of all time. It also won numerous awards, including the Baeksang Arts Awards Grand Prize for TV, and the Grand Prize at the MBC Drama Awards for Kim Sun-ah.

“Sam-soon” is an old-fashioned name in Korean culture. It is translated as “3rd daughter” (sam (삼) is three, soon (순) is meek or feminine).

My Lovely Sam-Soon (2005) is about the misadventures and romantic entanglements of Kim Sam-Soon, a passionate, stubborn, klutzy and almost thirty year old pastry chef.

Kim Sam-soon (Kim Sun-a) is loud and brash, but she is really very insecure because of her weight. She has always been embarrassed by her old-fashioned first name, and now that she is nearing her 30th birthday, she is determined to change it. She is an excellent baker with a fervent passion for making desserts. On Christmas Eve, Sam-soon gets dumped by her cheating boyfriend Min Hyun-woo (Lee Kyu-han) and she loses her job. One of the witnesses to her public humiliation is Hyun Jin-heon (Hyun Bin), the owner of upscale French restaurant Bon Appetit. Upon recognizing her talent, Jin-heon hires her as Bon Appetit’s new pastry chef. From their first meeting, the two have an antagonistic relationship. She even calls him the equally old-fashioned name of “Sam-shik” and sparks fly.
