Hyun-woo’s pasta-themed photo shoot

Hyun-woo plays a lesser side character in MBC’s Pasta, but he’s one of the drama’s breakouts, winning viewers over with his comic touch (and curly mop) as one of the restaurant’s trio of “pretty boy chefs.” He recently shot a photo spread (with a pasta theme, of course) and gave an interview for Hello TV, a “premium TV magazine” that acts as an online digital cable service.

The photo shoot took place at the restaurant where Pasta films, Buona Sera (which goes by the name La Sfera in the drama). Hyun-woo says that thanks to playing a talented Italian cook, he’s developed some pasta-cooking skills of his own, and plans to throw a big pasta dinner party (featuring his own cooking) for his family once the drama’s over. His shoot and interview will be available on Hello TV through February.

Meanwhile, Pasta is steadily improving in the ratings, and even has producers eyeing an extension. It has not been finalized, but if so, the drama will gain four episodes. (Although I enjoy Pasta, I cringe at this news; I think an extension is a Very Bad Idea. I can see why MBC is eager to crown one of its series a success given its spotty last year or two, but four more episodes just might kill it — it’s cute and charming, but slow enough as it is.)

I totally agree with your point about the extension, it's going slow enough already so any extension will really kill the momentum. The plot is already starting to annoy me so I really hope they won't ruin things.

This kid is the only one I like out of the Italian team. I think they were trying to emulate the cuteness factor of the Coffee Prince trio but ended up with the 'uglier' twin (not that I think they are ugly, just not as cute as characters). But Hyun Woo seems really cute and cheerful, cutest out of the three, I suppose.

Rather than linguine, in that last pic, maybe Hyun-Woo should have been eating fusille to match his pama hair....

Anyone else think he looks like the Ratatouille character? An Asian version of course...the perm, the nose, the lankiness, the pasta...?

Is it really his hair? Or, is it a wig? I'm not sure.

He is cute. But, when he wears that bowler, he reminds me of Harpo Marx. Actually, in the 3rd photo, he reminds me of Annie, in "Little Orphan Annie".

Please, no extension. Extensions really don't add anything worthwhile to the drama. It's just fan service.

Cute kid!

BTW, JB, I see that you have Pasta under 'In Progress'. Does that mean there's still a chance you'll recap it or is there somebody else who picked up the task of recapping?

First of all, let me just say HYUN WOO IS MINE!!!!!!!! I've been a fan of his since "Dream", so I got dibs!

Also, @ Snikki: I can answer your question about pasta recaps. (I hope I'm not out of line answering this.) Myself along with skimmy will be taking on the recaps.

I like this guy. He's cute, and his acting's not bad... he reminds me of when I first saw Kim Dong-wook in Coffee Prince (well, he's less impressive than KDW but still). I like to see more of him in the future, without the curly hair he has now, of course.

For me it's more of a noona thing, aside from Song Joong-ki, who's only a year younger, that's totally legal, right? xD

When I read the word the word 'extension' I yelled: No don't do it!

I don't know what MBC is thinking with all its cutting the episodes when it doesn't have the ratings and extending when it does. A story is written for a certain amount of episodes, right? Pasta is pretty noneventful (though it is enjoyable), so what could they possible fill the extra episodes with, except dragging the story even more or adding some cliches to keep them apart (I already see the long separation ahead :( ).

Ok, enough ranting. The pictures are really cute. He's one of my fave characters ^^

I love the series, I think the series is not really slow compared to other dramas I have seen. I think he is cute (he looks like Gong) and Min Woo is very handsome the other guy is not so cute but he has a sexy voice. I agree adding episodes will ruin it.

No extension please! Much as I adore Pasta, an extension is simply not a great idea for a drama of this nature.
