Two neighbors spend their lives in relative isolation, only finding true love in the form of delicious kimchi.
Lee Soo Kyung (Loving You a Thousand Times) and BEAST’s Yoon Doo Joon (IRIS 2) star in a foodie romantic comedy where the truest love is on a dinner plate. Lee Soo Kyung (Lee Soo Kyung) is a 33-year old paralegal divorcee who regrets her decision to marry before she was ready for it, and for that reason, attempts to carry herself with poise and dignity. Unfortunately, she is also an incurable gourmand, and can’t help herself around great food. Her close neighbor at her home, the Royal Family Condominium, is the mysterious Goo Dae Young (Yoon Do Joon), another food fanatic who paradoxically loves eating at fancy restaurants but hates being asked why he is eating alone. He also lies a lot, but is nothing but truthful in his colorful, forthright descriptions of food. Together, both neighbors spend their lives in relative isolation, only finding true love in the form of delicious kimchi. But when there is a mysterious murder in their area, can both these culinary soul mates continue the search that will invariably lead them to each other and, more importantly, to the perfect meal?
Adding to the drama are Kim Hak Moon (A Divorce Lawyer in Love and Brain alum Shim Hyung Tak), a petty lawyer who is also obsessed with food and prefers to dine alone, and Yoon Jin Yi (Big Man and My Love Eun Dong actress Yoon So Hee), a former rich girl who actually suggests that the crew start eating out together and taking a greater interest in each others’ lives.
Let’s Eat is directed by Park Joon Hwa, who fans will know for his work on Let’s Fight Ghost, and written by Lim Soo Mi. The immense popularity of the series spawned a direct sequel, the Goo Dae Young-centric Let’s Eat 2, and a spin-off, Let’s Drink (Drinking Solo). The show also garnered a strong and popular pairing of the lead characters with the director, with Lee Soo Kyung, Yoon Do Joon and Shim Hyung Tak all returning to collaborate with Park Joon Hwa on his 2016 hit, Let’s Fight Ghost. The first script reading for Let’s Eat took place on October 22, 2013 at CJ E&M; Center in Seoul, with the series debuting on November 28, 2013. Let’s Eat aired every Thursday on tvN in the 11:00PM timeslot, for a total duration of sixteen episodes, and a series finale airing on March 3, 2014.
