Promo stills from MBC’s Pasta

Cute. I admit I haven’t been terribly intrigued about MBC’s new drama Pasta — it’s up against Jejoongwon and God of Study, while Chuno airs a few days later — but the promos featuring Lee Seon-kyun (Coffee Prince) and Gong Hyo-jin (Thank You) do look adorable, as does the preview clip below.

The Italian restaurant-themed drama shot its promo posters at a Kangnam restaurant on December 9. Lee Seon-kyun plays the prickly head chef, while Gong Hyo-jin is an assistant.

Lee’s character (sigh) harbors a painful past that makes him unwilling to recognize the talents of women chefs (what a creative excuse for being a sexist?). This leads him to clash with Gong repeatedly in the kitchen as they get off to a rocky start. Gong says that although she has filmed with Lee for a month, there have been so many scenes with him tormenting her that she still can’t quite look him in the eye.

Lee said, “People keep asking me these days whether I feel the pressure of following Queen Seon-deok. Because they keep asking, I’m starting to feel the pressure.” Laughingly, he added, “Our drama isn’t going up against Queen Seon-deok. I’ll work hard so I hope we’ll be as loved as them.”

The drama also stars Honey Lee (Partner) and Clazziquai’s Alex, and premieres on MBC on January 4.

I love Gong Hyo-jin.. but I'm not too intrigued about Lee Seon-kyun as a main lead... Hope he proves me wrong.

does this remind anyone else of kim sam soon?
I'm not sure if it is Gong Hyo-jin's hair style or Lee Seon-kyun's difficult past with women, or perhaps cuz' it is set in a restaurant.

It's Lee Seon-kyun, so I think we HAVE to watch this. Isn't it like a law or something? I think you get fined by the Kdrama police if you try to pass on The Voice. ;-)

@9 Lucille

Yeah it does, and Oishii Kankei before it. But I agree with dramabeans, Lee's character description doesn't sound too genius... At least in the TW version (never seen the J-drama version), Vic Zhou's character is difficult to begin with, so his distain for the female lead in the beginning does not stem from "hatred for women". Hopefully the actual way it's presented will prove me wrong.

i was going to say the same thing, sounds alot like sweet relationship with a korean twist to it. he was horrible to her at begining of that one, too.
who knows?
i really like gong hyo jin so i'll will add it to the overwhelming stack of things to be watched "sometime soon."
really, the pile always seems to build instead of going down!

Yay, this looks cute. Here's hoping for lots of food porn, and what the what about Lee Seon Kyu's painful past? What's wrong with just saying he's sexist? I'd much rather accept that than the typical painful past. People can change.

@ 11 langdon813

agreed. (he's no longer in my Ahjusshi list tho) but for me it depends on the female pair. i didnot agre with the Triple pairing so i drop it..

Gong Hyo-jin is OK in my book so I'll watch the first few eps & see how

I hope they all casts will doing so hard working and work it out together so well at this new drama "PASTA" but nobody mess it up, mm! ((winks))
Oooh, Sudden -- I am kinda confused because it really remind me of Gong Hye Jin -- from my best favorite 2005 drama "My Name Is Kim Sam Soon", Lolz.

Do your best! ** Fighting!!! **

Honey Lee is a beauty, but is she more than that? Maybe. Let's see if this drama will prove her worth. On the other hand, I simply adore Lee Seon Kyun and since he's in here as the lead, Pasta is already on my Must Watch list.

I miss GHJ... Thank You was awesome and I had yet to watch Crush & Blush... aish...

Keeping a lookout for the drama and Alex looks totally at home since he is such an awesome chef in real life! Except he don't seems to be cooking in this drama? Manager of the restaurant? Its the suit!

Finally! A romantic comedy with two leads who can act!

I have a massive girl crush on Gong Hyo Jin so I might just have to take a look at this one.

This one is high on my to-watch list. (I do not watch saguek and can't share the same fever as others for Chuno unfortunately.) The cast looks pretty good, epecially the pairing of LSK and GHJ, and Alex's debut!

@ Honey Lee - she is pretty decent as an actress after seeing her performance in Partner.

Oh man... another one to ad to the list of Must Watch.

@11. You're right. The fine is hefty for rejecting any drama showcasing The Voice. And is it just me or is he looking especially smexy in that preview?

yay, can't wait for this to air. gong hyo jin is one of my favorite actresses so i'm definitely catching the first couple episodes for her. plus, i'm in the mood for trendy dramas with prickly male leads.

chuno looks like it will be awesome but really depressing. a clip of Jejoongwon where characters perform a c-section was disappointingly awkward but the teaser stills are beautiful. and the cast (both older and young) for god of study is great. it's a good thing i don't have to choose between these dramas and can try all of them. so many dramas to look forward to!
