Coffee Prince Episodes

Coffee Prince episodes are all coffee prince episodes of the Coffee Prince drama, a South Korean drama called Coffee Prince that represents the real potential of the 10th anniversary of Gao Yu. Fans have called for a second season with Gong Yu and Eun Yu Hai for years, but will this milestone anniversary finally trigger the much-awaited “Coffee Prince episode. 

Coffee prince also was known as “The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince,” this drama follows the life of Go Eun Chan (Yoon Eun Hye), a resilient tomboy who acts as the breadwinner for her family. She works multiple part-time jobs to make ends meet, including food delivery via motorbike and teaching Taekwondo. Because of her androgynous looks and her baggy clothing, Eun Chan is often mistaken as a boy. But she doesn’t mind; she’s got a family to feed and has no time for gender normativity.

On the other hand, we have Choi Han Kyul (Gong Yoo), the heir of his family’s food company and irresponsible troublemaker. After seeing some of Han Kyul’s pictures while he was abroad in America, Han Kyul’s family cracks down on his careless behavior and sets him up on blind dates. Han Kyul, however, is pining over his first love, Han Yoo-Joo (Chae Jung-an), who also happens to be the ex-girlfriend of his cousin Choi Han-sung (Lee Sun-Kyun).

If you think that’s confusing, you haven’t heard half of it! After bumping to Eun Chan and mistaking her for a boy, Han Kyul hires Eun Chan to be his gay lover to avoid the arranged dates. Considering her financial situation and the large pay, Eun Chan swallows her pride and chooses to accept… without mentioning that she is, in fact, a girl. After receiving an ultimatum from his grandmother, Han Kyul takes over a rundown coffee shop to prove that he is capable. Eun Chan, desperate for money, begs Han Kyul for a job and continues to hide her gender. Sparks start to fly and things start to get… well, dramatic.

For those of you new to K-dramas, I will be clear with you: this show is a heartbreaker

Coffee Prince is well known for its complicated love triangle, which is exacerbated by the cross-dressing elements. Pseudo-homosexuality is explored through the drama and reveals a powerful and true message that “love is love.” As a contender and straight female, I do not feel it is my place to say whether the use of the pseudo-homosexuality trope is or not. I will say that Korean society is generally less progressive on sexual orientation and, I think, this drama offers a healthy portrayal of love regardless of gender. As far as I am aware, this was the first gender bender drama to really take off in Korea and many others followed in its wake. 

We can’t go wrong with liking anything that Gong Yoo is in, especially with this break out hit. If it weren’t for Coffee Prince, the world may have never been graced with his beautiful eye smiles and that is not a world that I want to live in.

If it wasn’t obvious yet, I love the leading lady of this drama. She’s not only the bread-winner of her family but also a Taekwondo master — she literally kicks butt! She’s also responsible, incredibly hardworking, and eats like it’s nobody’s business (which it isn’t). You can’t help but root for her throughout the drama. When Eun Chan hurts, you hurt; when she smiles, you smile; and when she cries, you cry. This girl has an infectious personality and if you have ever dealt with self-confidence issues before, you will relate to this girl and will feel every bump of her emotional roller coaster.

In true host club fashion, there’s a character in this drama who’s bound to tickle your fancy: you’ve got the lovable idiot, the sociable player, and the quiet, mysterious guy. You also can’t beat the owner who is not too bad to look at himself.

I have recommended this drama to new viewers of Korean dramas various times and it has consistently been a favorite. The first couple episodes are slow and the “coffee shop” plot doesn’t kick in until around episode four, but once you get to this point the drama really starts to come alive.

If you’re not a fan of the “girl pretends to be a guy and guy doesn’t know” plot, then this may not be your cup of tea. If you are a fan of realistic characters and authentic emotional scenes, memorable and colorful characters, and beautifully written dialogue that stands the test of time then this is the drama for you.
