Coffee + Prince = ? - Coffee Prince (Korean Drama)

Because of Yoon Eun Hye i watched this drama. She is the lead actress in 'Coffee Prince' and before she been acting in 'Princess Hour/Goong'. I like her, she really a cute girl. So this is 1st time i watched some series because the girl not the guy..^_^ .
For me it's look like a cliche drama from normal plot manhwa/manga. (This drama is adaptation from the novel with the same name). With the girl cross dressing and the hero fall in love with him while thinking he might be a gay. The different because the director make a gay plot to attract viewer. 1 of the cast was been acting in gay series title 'Antique Bakery' a long with the lead actor from 'Princess hour/Goong' and now he acting in 'Marry stayed out all night' as a main supporting role. He is Kim Jae Wook. In some way it's look fun and pleases the fan girl of the actors in this series. Other than that it just a simple drama, easy to understand the plot, the character not strong enough and can be develop more to make this drama better. Even the acting from the cast almost the same not much improvement.
But don't make my comment as your guideline, maybe this drama is not up to my taste (i watched it because Yoon Eun Hye) but still this drama had a lot of fan and has quite a good rating when is aired in TV also the series has received several awards including the actor and actress from MBC. Please do enjoy and let see the review for this drama...let's roleeeee

Choi Han Kyul, played by Gong Yoo, is the cocky son of a very rich family who runs a damaged food corporation. He doesn't believe in love and certainly doesn't want to get married despite his family's requests. On the other hand, Go Eun Chan, played by Yoon Eun Hye, is a 24-year old tomboyish female who gets mistaken for a guy quite often. She takes up every job possible — waitress, food deliverer, etc — and has the responsibility of taking care of her mother and younger sister.
Eun Chan accidentally meets Han Kyul twice, once on a delivery and once during a robbery. During the robbery, Eun Chan's delivery motorcycle ends up being damaged. Han Kyul, not knowing that Eun Chan is actually a girl, decides to hire Eun Chan as a false "lover" so that he can escape the blind dates arranged by his grandmother. Meanwhile, Han Kyul's cousin, Choi Han Seong, is an established music producer and his ex-girlfriend Han Yoo Joo, who Han Kyul secretly loved for nine years, is a famous artist who studied in New York. The two were lovers for about 8 years but their relationship ended when Yoo Joo broke up with Han Seong. Two years after they separated their paths cross again when Yoo Joo returns to Seoul.
After getting an ultimatum from his grandmother, Han Kyul takes over a run-down severely damaged old coffee shop, later renamed Coffee Prince, to prove his ability, both to his grandmother and Yoo Joo. In order to attract female customers, he only hires good looking male employees. In a struggle with money, Eun Chan, whom Han Kyul has already mistaken as a boy, hides her gender to get a job at Coffee Prince.
Soon feelings start to spark between Eun Chan and Han Kyul. Because he's unaware that Eun Chan is a girl, Han Kyul starts to question his sexuality.
Like i said this drama had the strength you still can enjoy and like the plot and the actor/actress but it's not up to my expectation or in other way not my taste type K-Drama. For those who want to try watch it ..let me take your there...
