Dear Blogger,

For the past 2 weeks, our evenings have been spent doing nothing but watch several episodes of Korean drama, Pasta. It was my fault really. I rented the series out of curiosity.

Synopsis: Pasta tells the story of a spunky kitchen assistant, Seo Yoo Kyung who was just promoted to a cook at fancy Italian restaurant, La Sfera. When a new head chef, Choi Hyun Wook, joined the restaurant, all hell breaks loose as he has a "No women in my kitchen" policy.

Korean dramas featuring food have always been popular. Pasta is no different. If my husband makes me wait for him every night so we can watch this romantic comedy drama together, then it must be a good one to watch.

At first, Pasta felt like a B-grade drama because it didn't have the gloss and sleek production of a KBS drama. It was produced by MBC. It also didn't have unbelievably gorgeous and handsome leads unlike other K-dramas. The last K-drama we watched, The Fugitive: Plan B had 3 handsome leads! My husband had a major crush on Daniel Henney.

How Yoo Kyung and Hyun Wook met at a pedestrian crossing when he saved her goldfish was also unbelievable. But it works! Somehow the attraction just works! Just like Yoo Kyung, for some unknown reason, I became more attracted to Hyun Wook episode after episode. He's arrogant, sexist and he shouts a lot but maybe those are his magnetic factors.

He became even more dreamy when he showed his tender side somewhere in the middle of the series. He also wore scarves better than any man I've seen. Who doesn't like a confident, sensitive and fashionable man?

Yoo Kyung wasn't much of a beauty either but her plain jane appeal made her romance with Hyun Wook real. They were enduring and cute as a couple. I got a fuzzy feeling every time I watched them together, whether they were bickering or just conversing aimlessly.

What about the food? I am craving for pasta as we speak. Either carbonara or alfredo. The dishes served in the series looked as good as those served by Catherine Zeta Jones in No Reservations. I must say that chefs' uniforms must be one of the smartest uniforms because both Hyun Wook and Zeta Jones looked damn good in them.

Doesn't he look good in a chef's uniform?

Also watch the bittersweet, unrequited love of Yoo Kyung's secret admirer, her boss Kim San. He's rich, handsome and sweet yet he couldn't get the girl he wanted after 3 years of watching her from afar.

Altogether now, awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww~
