11 Reasons you should re-watch Coffee Prince right now
There are so many great dramas airing right now (like Blood or Fool's Love), but what do you do for the rest of the week as you wait for new episodes to be released? You could go outside and enjoy the beginning of spring...or you could re-watch one of you favorite classic dramas! And what better drama to re-watch first than Coffee Prince?
Below you'll find 10 reasons you should re-watch Coffee Prince right now! And if you haven't watched Coffee Prince, click here and watch it before reading this article! There are spoilers below!
1. Yoon Eun Hye makes an awesome boy
There was a stretch of time when girl-disguised-as-a-guy dramas were really popular. But Coffee Prince did it the best (in my opinion at least). It is a fantastic mistaken identity romantic drama, and Yoon Eun Hye plays her tomboyish character perfectly. Even as a viewer, you sometimes forget she is a girl! Yoon Eun Hye is an amazing actress and pulls off the deception to the very end.
2. This dog
Choi Han Sung’s adorable, fluffy dog Terry is reason enough to re-watch Coffee Prince. The way he waits every morning for his “girlfriend” Eun Chan to deliver milk so he can play with her is beyond cute. This is one dog I would love to snuggle.
3. Major momentary second lead syndrome
There were definitely times in Coffee Prince when it seems like Choi Han Sung (Lee Sun Gyun) would be a better choice for Eun Chan. He's so nice and sweet to her and really wants her to be happy. They make fantastic friends and would have been great together if things had turned out differently.
4. Han Kyul’s awesome car
Only Han Kyul (played by the handsome Gong Yoo) can make a little Mini Cooper with checkered mirrors look manly. Some of my favorite scenes from the show were when Han Kyul and Eun Chan were driving around. I think they really started to fall in love in that car.
5. The waffle guy
Handsome, mysterious, and he cooks delicious waffles? It’s obvious why all the girls fawn over Sun Ki, played by the gorgeous Kim Jae Wook. I love when he mumbles in Japanese and rolls his eyes at the antics of the other guys in the cafe. And his backstory gives his character a lot of depth — something you usually don’t get with periphery characters in dramas.
6. Coffee “Princes”
The cafe name “Coffee Prince” comes from the adorable young men, princes, who work at the shop. These guys certainly are as mouthwatering as the drinks! And they are also hilarious! Besides Sun Ki, who already made it on this list on his own merit, the unstoppable team also includes the doofy Hwang Min Yeop (played by Lee Un, who unfortunately passed away in 2008) and sharp-tongued Jin Ha Rim (Kim Dong Wook).
7. So many love triangles!
It seems like every character in this show is involved in some sort of love triangle. (1) Eun Chan, Han Kyul, and Han Sung, (2) Han Kyul, Han Sung, and Yoo Joo, (3) Han Sung, Yoo Joo, Eun Chan, (4) Han Sung, Yoo Joo, and DK (Yoo Joo's ex-boyfriend she originally left Han Sun for). Even Eun Chan's mother has a love triangle! There is so much relationship drama that you are bound to be simultaneously entertained and frustrated (in the best way).
The chestnuts scene is one of my favorite scenes in the whole show. Only Eun Chan would walk for as long as she did before noticing the hole in her chestnuts sack. And when Eun Chan and Han Kyul both follow the trail of chestnuts from opposite directions and meet in the middle...don’t lie; you loved it. The couple ends up talking on a park bench and taking the first steps towards reconciling.
9. This scene
This is probably one of my favorite scenes of all time. Of any drama. When Han Kyul carries Eun Chan out of his apartment and then she refuses to leave and pushes herself back inside...and then that kiss?? Wow. This is such an honest, loving scene.
10. And this scene
When Han Kyul shoves both of his legs into one pant leg and then tries to play it cool, I almost died laughing. And Eun Chan is embarrassed and nervous that her mom will be mad at her for spending the night and won’t get out of the comforter. Such a funny and down-to-earth interpretation of the morning after.
11. The message: Love conquers all
Enough said. Han Kyul’s and Eun Chan’s love beats the odds and overcomes all obstacles, including the heart-wrenching aftermath of Eun Chan’s gender reveal and a disapproving grandmother. They are the ultimate K-drama couple, and their relationship always keeps me coming back to re-watch Coffee Prince!
