Coffee Prince: Twelfth Cup
by | August 7, 2007 | 261 Comments

I wish Coffee Prince were a man, so I could marry it. We’d be happy together making beautiful latte art and raising lots of musically inclined children.



……Coffee Prince is a GIRL?!?!

Eun Chan still comes to work despite being told to quit. She approaches the still-angry Han Gyul, who gives her three minutes to talk. After that, she’d better leave because she’s fired.

Eun Chan: “In the beginning, I never thought you’d like someone like me. It seemed like you liked Yu Ju. She’s so beautiful that I can’t compare with her, so I thought I was better off being seen as a man. When I asked how you would feel if I were a woman, you said you weren’t going to date around anymore, that you’d marry a nice woman from a nice background, someone your grandmother and mother approved of. I’m not womanly or pretty, but if we were sworn brothers, I could be with you all the time. When we goofed around, and you treated me so well… I liked it so much I couldn’t tell you the truth.”
Han Gyul: “I really hate this. Why am I always betrayed by loved ones? Why didn’t my father tell me about my birth mother? Why couldn’t you tell me the truth? I thought about it so much my head felt like it would burst — it was because you couldn’t trust me. My father and you both. And I loved you so much. But you couldn’t trust me.”
Eun Chan: “It’s not that I couldn’t trust you, I couldn’t trust myself.”


Han Gyul: “When I said I liked you even as a man, I didn’t care what the world would think of me, disregarding my friends, family. I went through a lot of pain getting to the point where I decided those things didn’t matter. Go Eun Chan, I need someone who trusts me. Even if everyone else curses at me for being useless, I needed someone who’d believe: ‘Choi Han Gyul just didn’t have the opportunity to show himself. He’s a guy who does what he puts his mind to. He’s just someone who hasn’t yet found what he wants to do in life, but he truly can accomplish what he sets out to do.’ I needed someone to have that kind of faith in me. Not like you, who deceived me even in love, worrying over being found out.”
Eun Chan: “I didn’t have the confidence. I didn’t want that to happen… I wanted to tell you, but I was afraid you’d wouldn’t see me anymore. But the reason I’m telling you this now… is because I want you to see me as a woman. If you hate me, I can’t do anything about it, but I’m so sorry, and I know I was so wrong… But I like you. I love you. If you tell me to quit, I will. If you don’t want to see me… couldn’t you still see me anyway?”
Han Gyul: “I don’t have the confidence to continue. I don’t know who you are. The Go Eun Chan I knew was always honest with me, who trusted and liked everyone, facing the world just as he was. I wanted to be like him. But you… You aren’t the Go Eun Chan I know. Let’s not meet again.”

Phew, way to reduce me to a sniveling mess in the first five minutes.

Han Gyul tells Mr. Hong that Eun Chan will be leaving, and Mr. Hong scolds him for his behavior. Yes, he gets that Han Gyul went through a harder time than Eun Chan, but why is he so angry? She’s a girl, and they like each other — that’s a cause for celebration. Mr. Hong can’t stand working there like this, so he leaves. Ha Rim tries to convince him to stay, and Han Gyul tells him he’ll be gone in a month anyway. Mr. Hong says, “Fine, then I guess I’ll be back in a month,” and walks out.

Eun Chan packs her things and leaves. Han Gyul watches her go.


Han Gyul has no desire to talk to his cousin, but Han Sung calls and says all he has to do is listen. He explains that he first met Eun Chan when she delivered milk to his house, and yes, she was the girl he took to Yu Ju’s exhibit.

Han Sung: “That day, she was really beautiful. But by the time I started to see her in that way, she already had feelings for you. She cried as she told me how much she liked you.”
Han Gyul: “This is annoying. How long do I have to listen to you?”
Han Sung: “She wanted to tell you, but she had no confidence in herself, because she felt like she wasn’t a woman or a man. She sobbed her heart out. I’ll be honest with you. I was swayed toward her. But since she liked you, I decided to just be friends. I’m not even sure why I wavered. That’s really all there was. The fact that Eun Chan told you the truth even at this late point is because she has faith in you.”


Yu Ju apologizes for not telling Han Gyul about Eun Chan, and explains that she’s leaving. Han Gyul asks if it’s because of Eun Chan. Was the relationship between Han Sung and Eun Chan serious enough to drive Yu Ju away? Yu Ju explains: “Their relationship wasn’t a matter of how far they went. It’s just that Han Sung’s feelings swayed toward her, and even then it was just a short while. So forgive Eun Chan.”

Han Gyul asks why she’s leaving, and she answers they’ve got a lot of issues between them. Yu Ju was always the one depending on Han Sung, and he was the one to comfort and accept her. She’d thought his anger was something exclusive to her (born of love): “But I realized that’s not true. I know I’m not being mature about this, and I can’t be cool either. I’m really horrible, I know. But my feelings don’t listen.”

Han Gyul wonders how Han Sung felt, knowing how he liked Yu Ju all this while, and concludes that Han Sung didn’t worry about losing Yu Ju to his cousin because he trusted her — so much that he waited for her even after she left for another man. Yu Ju: “Then you don’t have faith in Eun Chan.”

Han Gyul says he’d always felt that Yu Ju and Han Sung were so rock-solid that he never had a shot of squeezing himself in between them. For Han Sung’s sake, he asks her not to go: “If you do, I think I’d hate you.”


Eun Chan and Han Gyul spend the next several days moping. Han Gyul recalls Eun Chan’s words from the first scene, and also thinks of Mr. Hong’s words: “Ask yourself carefully if you can live without Go Eun Chan.”


Han Sung drives Yu Ju to the airport, and tries to convince her one last time not to go. Their argument spills over onto the sidewalk when Yu Ju tells him to pull over. Han Sung yells: “You strayed too. Why is it okay for you, but not for me?!” He put up with so much — he knew she was lying about DK even before they broke up — but he forgave her.

Yu Ju counters — if he’d been so accepting all this time, why is it now that he faltered? She watched him lie to her face when he said Eun Chan was merely a cute little kid. Han Sung admits that he made a mistake, but it wasn’t love. Yu Ju can’t tell the difference.

As she turns and walks off, Han Sung begs her not to leave, shouting after her, “Don’t go. Don’t go!”

[Side note: The scene was okaaay, but felt a little… acted. Usually this series does amazing things with letting scenes breathe (like in Episode 7 when Yu Ju waited all day in Han Sung’s house, and Han Gyul dealt with the aftermath of his fight with Eun Chan), but this felt suffocated. The emotions seemed prepared, not in-the-moment (which is what I loved about their fights in Episode 11). And perhaps a little overacted. Okay, criticism over.]

At the airport, Yu Ju finds DK waiting for her — but stays at a distance. They have a wordless exchange — and, realizing Yu Ju’s not leaving, DK goes alone with a rueful wave. Han Sung races to the airport to find her, but he’s too late, and thinks that she’s already gone.


Now jobless, Eun Chan keeps herself occupied peeling chestnuts and sewing doll eyes. Taking a break to go to the convenience store, she runs into Han Sung, who can tell she hasn’t been doing so well.


Han Sung: “It’s because he likes you so much. That’s why he’s so angry. Although he doesn’t look like it, he’s someone with deep affections, and once he gives you his heart, he gives it all. So just wait a little.”

Han Sung assures her Han Gyul will understand, but tells her not to tell Han Gyul about their kiss — because he’s found that when you tell someone something to ease your own guilty conscience, sometimes it only brings the other person pain. She thanks him and tells him again that he’s like Santa, and Han Sung responds,

“I’m the one who should be thankful, for being able to be Santa to you. So even if it’s difficult, be strong. Han Gyul has really fallen for you.”


At the cafe, Han Gyul is confronted on all sides with appeals to forgive Eun Chan. No matter how mean Ha Rim was to Eun Chan, when talking to Han Gyul, he plays the part of pacifier, asking to hire her back. Min Yub has heard from Eun Sae how poorly Eun Chan is doing these days, eating badly, not sleeping well. Sun Ki tells him, “The way I see it, it was really hard on her too. She’s young. And don’t you think she was afraid things would end up like this?”


Han Gyul goes to see his cousin. At first, the mood is strained, as Han Sung asks Han Gyul to forgive him for having feelings for Eun Chan: “If you really don’t want me to see her anymore, I won’t. I’ll do my best so that we don’t even happen to meet by chance.”

Han Gyul apologizes for hitting him, for overreacting to learning the truth about Eun Chan, and also for passing off his feelings for Yu Ju as mere friendship. He invites Han Sung to hit him if it’ll make him feel better.

Han Sung informs him of Yu Ju’s departure: “But don’t worry too much about us. Yu Ju and I have ten years of history. There’s something between us that you wouldn’t even be able to imagine. We won’t just end like this.”

Han Gyul: “Yu Ju really loves you. She’ll come back to you. It was a really good thing it was you that she loved. If it were anyone else, I’d have stolen her away. I held back because it was you. I like you a whole lot more than you think I do, you know.”

(Aww for brotherly love! These cockles, they are warmed.)


(Somebody needs to give the writer a raise, because I love this next sequence like you wouldn’t believe. I love it so much it makes me sad I didn’t write it.)

That night, Han Gyul goes to Eun Chan’s home, looking up at her window. After staying there for a while, he drives away.

At the same time, Eun Chan waits outside Han Gyul’s apartment. It’s getting late, so she starts wheeling her bicycle away, unaware that her burlap sack is leaking chestnuts.


When Han Gyul arrives home, he finds the chesnuts on the ground, leading him like a trail of breadcrumbs. He follows the trail, and starts to pick them up, just as Eun Chan discovers the torn bag and starts collecting the chestnuts from her end.

And thus they meet in the middle.



Sitting side by side on a park bench, they remain silent for a while as they try to decide how to handle this. But Han Gyul’s anger has been slowly subsiding over the course of the episode, and he tells her to come to work tomorrow.

“I’m still angry, I still feel resentful and I can’t completely understand… And so, I asked myself if I could live without Go Eun Chan. Could I separate from her like this? And it turns out I can’t.”

He sees her tearing up and chides her for crying so much: “From now on, you’d better only cry in front of me. Don’t you dare cry like this in front of other men, or you’re dead.” He reaches over and wipes the tears from her eyes.

Eun Chan apologizes again:

“When we played around, when I acted as your dongsaeng, that must’ve been so awful for you. I only tried to keep myself from being hurt, and looked for a place to run away. I didn’t understand how you felt when you made me those toys, how much you were hurting. When you said let’s go as far as we could, I was just happy, and didn’t even think of your struggles. I’m sorry.”

Han Gyul apologizes too:

“When I kissed you at the cafe and said it meant nothing, I did that to hurt you. It was because I was angry — but I absolutely didn’t mean it. I’m immature for not thinking of how hard it was on you. I’m sorry. I apologize. Forgive me.”

Eun Chan tells him it was her mistake from the start, so it’s okay.


Han Gyul rests his head on her shoulder, saying:

“Go Eun Chan… I’m glad you’re a girl.”

Eun Chan quickly turns her head to kiss him, and they stay like that, together in silence.



The next day, Eun Chan’s back at the cafe, and Ha Rim, for all his bluster and aggravation, is genuinely happy to see her back. When Han Gyul arrives, they all watch with bated breath, not quite sure of the situation.

Han Gyul pretends to ignore Eun Chan, although he steals looks at her while the others are too busy speculating over the status of the relationship. They ask Eun Chan if something happened the night before to cause the change, and with a shy smile, she nods. The Princes whoop in glee.

They accost her for details, and Ha Rim jokes that they should use her phone to send Han Gyul lovey-dovey text messages. Ha Rim says they don’t even need her phone since they can send it with his, and starts typing a message. Eun Chan stops them — and hands over her phone: “Send it with mine.”


The Princes watch Han Gyul receive the message, which reads: “Thank you ♥.” He smiles (and the Princes are thrilled).


After going on their coffee bean deliveries, Han Gyul and Eun Chan enjoy a walk through the park, and Han Gyul is adorably playful. As he walks hand in hand with Eun Chan down the street, he excitedly turns to strangers to tell them, “She’s a girl. She’s a girl. A girl!”

Han Gyul: “See, you should’ve told the truth from the start, so we could’ve held hands like this.”
Eun Chan: “I really didn’t know you liked me.”
Han Gyul: “Are you kidding me? I even went to the hospital because of you. Are you a dummy?”
Eun Chan: “Hospital? I thought you just saw me as a cute younger brother. And I had nothing to assure me you’d like a girl like me.”

She tells him when she first saw him, she thought he was incredibly good-looking. He’s pleased to hear it, until she clarifies that their first meeting wasn’t at the purse-snatching, but when she delivered food to his apartment. Han Gyul exhibits a belated sense of modesty.

Han Sung finds out about Yu Ju not going to New York from DK: “I thought work was the most important thing to her, but it seems there’s something you have that’s more important.”

Worried, Han Sung tells Han Gyul that he hasn’t been able to locate her. Far from being angry, Han Sung realizes he didn’t know as much about her as he should have: “I don’t know where her mother’s house is, or have phone numbers of her close friends.”


Later that night, Eun Chan and Han Gyul talk on the phone, and he wonders why she’s so interested in Han Sung’s business. He tells her Han Sung had liked her — and she, remembering Han Sung’s caution, pretends not to know: “No, that can’t be.” He asks if she’d had feelings for him, and she admits that at first, she did like Han Sung, but then she started liking Han Gyul more.

Han Gyul pretends to be miffed, asking why she picked him over his cousin, who’s nicer and warmer: “Be honest. You like both of us, right?” Eun Chan takes his teasing for real and insists, “Han Sung is just a nice ajusshi, and you — I don’t really know the reason, but I just… like you.”

Han Gyul enjoys her reaction while carrying on his mock indignation, telling her he’s still upset: “My anger just won’t go away.” Left with nothing else to say, Eun Chan says, almost defiantly: “I love you. I love you! I really love you!”

That catches Han Gyul totally off guard, and in an instant, he goes from playfully happy to completely stunned. His legs give out and he sinks down on the couch, catching his breath. (The song is “Coffee Is” by Cloud Cuckoo Land”.)

He covers, accusing her (in bluster) of playing with words and being a smooth talker:

“Hey, you jerk! You could’ve said so openly, comfortably, and we could’ve been insanely happy together. Why didn’t you tell me, and put me through all that suffering? Bad Go Eun Chan! You punk!”

Eun Chan smiles in relief, and then he tells her sternly, gruffly:

“Listen to me carefully. I love you more.”

Both are stunned at their mutual admissions — you can almost feel their visceral reactions to their words — and then, overcome with giddy happiness. Eun Chan jumps around her room, yelling, “He says he loves me! He loves me!”

  8. nana

  11. 11 diana

  15. 15 wizie

    i knew the end was the clincher… i just had to start half way. Thanks, i love it… im still all smiles and my heart won’t just calm down. Again its almost midnight here, good luck tom. I’m betting you’ll surpass the 140+ posts you had in ep 11 in less than 24 hours.

  16. 16 w

    thank you so much for your summaries! i would’ve DIED waiting for the subtitles to come out. this episode was awesome, i’m so in love with gong yoo right now it’s ridiculous.

  17. 17 gggiiinnnaaaaaaaa

  18. 18 rtan

    thanks, javabeans! been refreshing all day. great summary!
    i wonder what will happen next. i just hope they’ll have more happy and funny scenes before the sad ones again. =p

  19. 19 glo

    i adore the new gorgeous banner!

    im wondering what the next 4 [or has it really been extended to 8] more episodes are going to be about. why can’t this cute love just go on forever?~

    i especially loved the princes in this episode, like when they discuss their inappropriately revealing moments with eun chan. ha rims crazy little monologue cracked me up. :)))

  20. 20 S

    Thanks for the wonderful summary, Javabeans! You’re an angel.

    I find myself irritated with Yu Ju’s double-standards though. She cheated on Han Sung with DK and expected him to take her back. But when HS wavered just a little over Eun Chan, she gave no quarter. YJ and HS should split for good, like in the novel. 🙂

  21. 21 Gigi

    SQUEEEEEE!!!!! I am seriously grinning like a freak right now. That was so sweet.

  22. 22 tippie

    i’m in LOVE…i’m in LOVE… hehe

  23. 23 Vickstar*

    Awww – so many kawaii moments …… I loved the chestnut scene soooo much and the Princes were hilarious. Thank you for giving me a much better idea of what’s going on/being said as I am completely Korean-deficient! LOL! ^-^

  24. 24 repjans

    Ah seems like the ending~
    I wonder whats in store for them both. They have overcome one of the biggest obstacle and now…. gaaaah, why MBC didnt show the 13th cup preview?! dang! At least it will not spoil the lovely feeling we have right now.
    As always, thank you javabeans^^

  25. 25 centurionsunfire

    oh man… my heart is racing. this is the best show ever. by far my biggest obsession.

    and i cried after that first conversation too…

  26. 26 R

    THank you for the wonderful recap.. I was waiting desperately for it.. Yeah the drama is turning out to be very good (and not in a draggy way).. Everything seems to be just right.. Like a perfect food dish, with just the right amount of ingredients.. I wonder what will happen next (other than the family and HS and YJ issue)..

    PS: Can anyone tell me which song was playing during the chestnut picking scene..

  27. 27 joey

    YES! I’ve been waiting for this all day! well for 4 hours since I woke up… but it feels like ages. Mad Props to you, for consistently writing Coffee Prince summaries.

    THANK YOU!! Now I can’t wait to dl the ep.

  28. 28 krnzzang05

    i feel that the drama has climaxed and has had some sort of resolve…there was no preview for the next episode, and i know that the drama is at least supposed to go up to 16 and supposedly extended to 18 episodes

    i just wonder where they will go in the next 4 to 6 episodes, because this episode has already almost reached where the book ended, when it comes to the relationship between eun chan and han gyul. maybe how han sung and yu ju resolve things? maybe the kiss that han sung told eun chan not to tell han gyul may anger han gyul? i mean i like the fact they had no preview to keep the people interested, but i just dont see how much further they can stretch the story, now that han gyul and eun chan are a couple. well hopefully i will be pleasantly surprised and not massively disappointed at how this drama ends.

  29. 29 doremi02

    just simply awesome this episode!!!!!!1Thanks Sarah!Gal, you make my day!

  30. 30 wandergirl

    Oh dear God.
    What a wonderful episode. I love the trail of chestnuts. Seriously, I am squeeing in glee. Btw, great choice of screencap (main page, before the cut). Makes me want to just hug Han Gyul. Also, there’s a tiny part of me that’s still holding out for Han Sung-Eun Chan. *sigh*

  31. 31 apple

    even though at times it felt like they were just packing everything in.. this episodes was really good, specially the Han Gyul and Eun Chan moments.

    thank you.

  32. 32 MinMey

    aww, a made up episode from such a pain they had before . really sweet made up… but things are ok now, something juicy will happen..or maybe bad thing (who knows! today ep had no preview , so the cliffhanger is still there(or here) hehe ^_^

    thank u so much Javabeans 🙂

  33. 33 Suzy

    Oh, I was so hoping it wasn’t going to be angst and tears and moping from here on out – the same turn so many k-dramas suddenly make. I’m SO GLAD HK & EC are back to the same playful-sparring-chemistry but with a different twist – she’s a woman now!

    “I wish Coffee Prince were a man, so I could marry it.” What a crack-up opening line!
    Thanks again, javabeans.

  34. 34 Dwi

    I like it when you provide song in every post. I used to read it and play the song together.. it feels really nice and good!! Thank you for your summary .. i really love this episode. i can watch it million times!

  35. 35 glo

    i just wanna say thank u so much…..i enjoy reading it more then watching it, cause of all the inside stuff u put in…..keep up the good work

  36. 36 obivia

    Thanks, Javabeans!!!

    As much as I love CP, I almost wish they’d end it here. It was perfect. (Even more so b/c of your eloquent summary) I feel like they’re gonna go through a really bumpy patch and as close to reality as that’d be, I dread it.

    6 more, people. Sigh. What to do.

    P.S. I love that screencap where HK covers his bits. So cute! I’m gonna go reread the whole summary for kicks!

  37. 37 april

    Wow, I love how this drama keeps things going, instead of DRAGGING like crazy like typical dramas do. But I’m a bit scared for episodes 13-16 because SO much can happen between them. It’ll be interesting to see where it’ll go, but MAN this episode was SO good. I was literally squealing as I was watching it. The chesnut scene was SO good. haha I want to see Han Gyul and Eun Chan get married and have lots of babies…..

  38. 38 honeycino

    oh i absolutely love coffee prince! han gyul and eun chan are so sweet! hoping for more of these heartwarming moments to come in the next 4 (or 6?) episodes ^^

    i’m in agony right now because i can’t download or watch the episodes online since my internet connection got throttled back to 56kps. so thank you so so SO much javabeans, you write so eloquently and describe the scenes so well it’s like i’m watching the actual drama!

  39. 39 Marisse

    Thaknk You soooo much for the summary!!!
    I cant wait every week to read your blog!!

  40. 40 Vanessa

    First, thank you so much javabeans for another wonderful summary. I read your summaries over and over again, never getting tired of it.

    This episode brought me back to my highschool days, watching this episode brought me back to the feelings of first love, first kiss and those times when I would feel really giddy just by talking on the phone.

    **possible spoiler** (dont read if you dont want to)
    I am not sure if this is true, rumour has it that there will be a Hotel scene between EC and HK in eopisode 13. I wonder if it’s true.

  41. 41 tuesdhei

    ….for me this is the best episode so far aside from episode 10 of course ha ha — i love the chesnut part especially when he smiled and realized that the chestnuts are probably from eun chan — WOW! one hell of a twist! the writer’s imagination was awesome!!! good thing i was able to watch it on-line last night eventhough i have to refresh it everynow and then coz my connection through MBC drops all the time and i don’t see any uploads yet of episode 12 anywhere even at VEOH… i trully love this drama! YEH and GY looks really good together! thanks again javabeans and i love your new header — the coffee prince header… Have a great week ahead! Till next monday!

  42. 42 jinkzzmec


    just finished reading your summary…this drama has taken me through all sorts of emotions since i started watching it…it went from a totally heartbreaking 11th episode( which really disturbed me so much so that i only had less than 3 hours of sleep this am ) to a 360 degree turn of making me giddy and silly with hapiness. I was so sad watching the first part of the episode that i was crying from frustration but then it was replaced by elation. GY is really a versatile actor…he has the ability to convey different emotions using just facial expressions but he can carry acting silly as well…i love the part where he was getting weak in the knee as well as his silly expression laying on the couch after he hangs up the phone…it was so funny..hahahaha…Im glad that they did not show any preview for next week’s episode because i dont want to let go of this happiness that i am feeling right now…this is more than enough to tide me over til next week

  43. 43 nixxochick

    once more, thank you so much for posting this so quickly!

    i really loved this episode, i guess my only concern is that the drama has 4 more episodes to go and im not sure where they will take this story since EC and HG are pretty much a couple now. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens next week.

    i especially loved the chestnut scene, there was something about it that just made me really happy. I guess it might of been just seeing how even though HG is so hurt he admits he cant live without EC, theres just something about it that makes me all warm inside.
    and the end, what can i say about that…only that it made me really happy!

  44. 44 christy

    Thank You! Now I have to wait until next week! Soooo sweet! I also love the book ending.

    ohh yesss!!! episode 12, as usual i’ve been refreshing your page since this morning as if i didn’t know that they just televised it in korea this 5:55am (my time).
    wow… really javabeans you never ceased to amaze me on how fast you can make your summary and i really really enjoy reading your piece. well about episode 12, it’s a cute episode so much different from yesterday’s tear jerker i almost feel like a teen ager once more hehe. actually i’ve watched the raw prior to reading your summary & as usual i only understand a bit but their actions speak louder than words but your summary is the best especially for us who’s so addicted to CP who don’t mind watching without sub just to follow through with the series. THANKS A LOT JAVABEANS.
    See you next week for CP 13th & 14th cups…….take care & God bless you!

    ……Coffee Prince is a GIRL?!?!”

    Lol… according to the drama, even if CP is a girl, you can still love and try to marry it, no?

    Sorry if this kills everyone’s happy mood, but I can’t be worried about what will happen in the future. The rest is probably going to go into Han Gyul’s family problems and the kiss Eun Chan didn’t tell Han Gyul about. I’m scared, but they’ll be together in the end anyways!

    Thank you Dear Javabeans
    12 cup is really beautiful, indeed simply and beautiful, but because this drama has a politic that it says “Don’t trust on your eyes and your feelings (one ep sad, one ep happy)” I’m afraid of what’s that going to happen in the next episodes. Now the storm calms down but what is happen in the future?…. this is the problem…..(if the relation between EC and HS is that critical point?)
    Thank you again daer javabaeans.
