It's Christmas-time and klutzy Kim Sam-Soon is nearly thirty years old, overweight, dumped by her cheating boyfriend, and out of work. After an embarrassing first meeting with arrogant restaurant-owner Hyeon Jin-Heon, she is employed as a pastry chef. Sam-Soon and her younger employer are equally stubborn and opinionated. The pair often argue, but Jin-Heon asks her to pretend to be his girlfriend when he wants to avoid his family's matchmaking. Things get more complicated when Yu Hee-Jin --the pretty ex-girlfriend Jin-Heon still pines for, returns from America with handsome Dr. Henry Kim in tow... Written by L. Hamre

One of the better KTV melodramas out there!
11 November 2012 | by cremeaSee all my reviews

My Lovely Sam-Soon aka Kim Sam-Soon.

Yay!...I see other people have already reviewed this show sufficiently enough, and fairly accurately in my opinion (except for that tool from India). Not much for me to add here, so I won't waste much time other than a few comments below.

SPOILERS AHEAD!

This show is really good overall for this genre, and, it features a nice mix of typical KTV melodrama fare combined with an otherwise straightforward adult drama. You do get your hunky doctor, beauty with cancer, various love angles, etc...But the main focus is on the life of the lead character; she's an overweight (by KTV drama standards), single, down on her luck, woman who's quickly approaching middle age.

I really like how this show portrays the main character as neither pitiable or without merit. Instead, she's quite "normal", well grounded, and really charming. This is an unusual and refreshing choice to be the focal point and main love interest of a KTV melodrama (as opposed to the status quo of some super thin young beauty who needs to be saved by, or take advantage of, some good looking rich dude).

Lead actress is terrific, and, she's deserves a lot of credit for taking this role on; she is actually a super thin beauty in real life who put on a lot of weight just to play the part, and, she absolutely nails this role!... The rest of the main cast is quite good too overall, and, I particularly enjoyed the performances of some of the secondary characters; the lead character's older sister being chief among them.

Bottom Line: 8 out of 10 stars!...I loved it!...VERY WELL RECOMMENDED!
