Coffee Prince: Fifteenth Cup

(“Can you hear me now?”)

 
One thing I’ve noticed about the acting in Coffee Prince: Aside from the generally solid performances given by the main characters in any given scene, also worth pointing out are the reaction shots. By which I mean: the responses of those not performing the main action or dialogue in the scene, but rather reacting to it.

A lot of times, actors aren’t very conscious of their reaction shots (actors are vain; why act when I’m not “on”?), but when they do deliver a great reaction, it gives a scene that extra layer of completeness, three-dimensionality. Without that layer, it’s like you’re just an audience member watching something being performed in front of you. With it, though, the scene feels more like it’s unfolding around you, that you’ve witnessed a genuine moment, and that’s a lovely thing. Lee Seon Kyun (Han Sung) in particular has some great reaction shots this episode.

EPISODE 15 SUMMARY

It’s the day after the end of Episode 14, and Eun Chan asks Han Gyul repeatedly, happily, if he’s truly not going to leave for New York. Apparently she’s been asking nonstop since he first mentioned it.

Enjoying her response, Han Gyul asks if that makes her that happy, and she nods yes. She feels guilty for being the reason he’s staying, though, because toy designing was his dream. Han Gyul responds that he’d liked the idea of being a designer because it was something he could do all on his own, but he’s finding that managing a business, and working with others, is fun too.

Eun Chan tells him that after meeting his grandmother, she gained newfound motivation to become a cool, impressive woman worthy of him. Someone who doesn’t just receive support but also provides it, for him and also her family.

Han Gyul’s grandmother is still upset with Eun Chan, and complains to Mr. Hong about her. Mr. Hong matter-of-factly tells Granny that she should be thankful for Eun Chan, who’s not only a decent kid but a far better catch than even Han Gyul. Han Gyul shaped up and did a great job with the cafe because of her pushing him along and motivating him. Granny should count her lucky stars; Eun Chan’s perfect granddaughter-in-law material.

 

As for the Princes: Min Yub is in a dark mood, replaying Eun Sae’s goodbye kiss in his head and scowling at everyone. Sun Ki’s in a good mood, now that he’s a frequent visitor to the woman he’d been searching for, even if they’re not progressing into a romantic relationship (in fact, she’d rather he leave her alone, because she doesn’t want to keep being painted by his parents as the horrible married lady who ruined the life of their precious son).

Ha Rim, the most frank and sexual-minded of them all, doesn’t get Sun Ki’s whole platonic thing. He offers Eun Chan the benefit of his expertise, should she need it. (Uncomfortable with the subject, Eun Chan turns the tables on him by mentioning his butt tattoo, which effectively scares him away. Heh.)

 

That night, Han Gyul again vies for Eun Chan’s attention while she’s busy studying. Their playful mood turns into an argument when Eun Chan brings up the debt she’s still repaying — complete with interest. Han Gyul bristles — he never asked for interest, and he doesn’t want to take her money: “Would you accept it? Think about it from my position! What kind of guy would take money from his girl, knowing she was in a tough spot?”

Eun Chan doesn’t see things his way. It’s her debt, and it’s her responsibility to repay it, no matter their relationship. If she doesn’t, she won’t feel right. She opts out of the fight by leaving for the night, and Han Gyul shouts after her as she walks out the door: “Hey! Hey, where are you going? Stop right there! One, two, two and a half, three! Hey, you’re not really gone, right? I know you’re standing outside, come back in! Don’t go!”

After trying to resist calling, Han Gyul finally gives in — only to find her phone is turned off. He stews with impatience, worry, curiosity. She’s not really mad, but she’s making a point, and sends him a good-night text message (“See you tomorrow!”) — then shuts off her phone again. Hehe.

 

Yu Ju fills Han Sung in on meeting her mother (who’s on her fourth marriage), who initially warned her against marrying. (After seeing Yu Ju starting to consider the idea, her mother changed her mind and told her to go for it.) Her mother said Yu Ju would have a hard time finding a man willing to put up with her; Yu Ju looks at Han Sung and says, “Ah, but there’s one such guy right here.”

With the subject on the table, Han Sung digs through a bag of snack crackers, and places a ring-shaped one around her finger: “Let’s marry.” She doesn’t respond directly, and he entreats her to think about it. She says she will.

 

The Choi cousins discuss their woman troubles together (after Han Gyul congratulates Han Sung on the pregnancy); the underlying issue is similar for both. Han Sung: “Wouldn’t it be nice if the girl leaned on the guy just a bit? It’s a worry, when the girl’s too well-off on her own.”

Han Gyul says he envies Han Sung, who wonders why — wasn’t he happy being independent? Has he changed? Han Gyul tells him something that can be translated as a cross between “I’m crazy about Go Eun Chan” and “I adore her to bits.” He continues: “I want to live with her.”

The cousins don’t even pretend to listen to each other as they both ponder their respective concerns, aloud:

Han Gyul: “Would marriage be good?”
Han Sung: “Isn’t it better to regret getting married than regret not getting married?”
Han Gyul: “Seems like it could be a good idea.”
Han Sung: “Yeah, right?”
Han Gyul: “Huh? What?”
Han Sung: “Never mind.”
Han Gyul: “Marriage…”

 

Han Gyul’s mother calls Eun Chan out for lunch, and asks her kindly about the status of her relationship with Han Gyul. It seems Han Gyul’s thinking of marriage, but she worries that they’ve only known each other for three months. Eun Chan answers that she knows she’s lacking much; Han Gyul has much more going for him than she does: “Seeing him, I’ve gained a goal, too — to become an impressive person. So I can’t marry right now, because I haven’t accomplished anything as Go Eun Chan yet.” She assures Han Gyul’s mother that Han Gyul truly loves his family a lot; she won’t do anything to cause them trouble.

 

Blur’s “Sweet Song” ::

Dancing together as the sun sets, Han Sung prepares himself for bad news when Yu Ju tells him she has something she has to say. But he’s caught completely off-guard when Yu Ju kneels, takes out a ring box, and asks him, “Will you marry me?”

I love Han Sung’s shocked, hopeful reaction as Yu Ju tells him she can’t give him the stars and the moon or make other impossible promises: “But I’ll try hard.” She knows she isn’t the type of daughter-in-law his parents will like, but still, she’ll try her best at that too.

 

Rendered speechless, Han Sung attempts to say something.

Han Sung: “What do I say…? You’ve turned me in to a fool — my head’s completely empty.”
Yu Ju: “I want to have a baby like you. Thank you, for being by my side. I love you.”
Han Sung: “Love you too.”
Yu Ju: “I love you lots more.”
Han Sung: “Thank you.”

(Practically crazy with excitement, an ecstatic Han Sung calls Han Gyul to tell him the news, so thrilled he can hardly tell if it’s a dream or reality. Han Gyul: “You’re calling just to brag?!” Haha.)

 

Eun Chan’s mother seems to feel sorry toward the quieter, downspirited Mr. Gu, who’s decided to get over his feelings for her. She knows he’s a good man, and thanks him for allowing her to feel like a woman again — she’d thought that time of her life was over. She tells him that maybe, if after both her daughters are married and well settled, if he’s still available, they might give it a try then. She seems sincere, and he’s thrilled to have just even that tiny nod of encouragement.

 

Han Gyul tells Eun Chan about Han Sung and Yu Ju’s good news, which she’s happy to hear. She exhibits her naivete when she wonders for a moment how they can be pregnant already, then catches Han Gyul’s eye and half-embarrassedly says, “Ah, right.” He asks her how many children she wants, and she jokes ten, then amends that to three. He figures about the same. With his mind on the future, he asks if she likes cleaning (“Who likes cleaning?”) or dish-washing (“Can’t you see how I break dishes?”).

Han Gyul decides, “No, that won’t do.” Eun Chan asks what won’t do, and he answers: “Living together.”

Han Gyul lists all the reasons she wouldn’t be a good living partner (snoring, eating too much), and she retorts, “Who said I wanted to live together?” Han Gyul’s response: “Then what about marriage?” Surprised, she asks cautiously if he’s saying he wants to get married, and he tries not to act too serious, saying that he’s just bringing up the subject — it doesn’t mean he’s suggesting it.

Han Gyul asks, a little more seriously, what kind of proposal she’d like to receive. Playing along, Eun Chan lists a bunch of silly things, like a big diamond ring, 100 red roses, violins on a ferry boat, a blown-up picture of herself posted at the roof of a skyscraper… At her jokey response, Han Gyul tells her to forget it and go home… then drags her back for another hug. “Don’t go.”

 

The next day, while driving along, Han Gyul fantasizes what it would be like living with Eun Chan (the song is “Maiden Voyage” by Missing Island):

Everyone seems to be aware of Han Gyul’s marriage-minded feelings, because his father tells Grandma that his biggest life regret is allowing her to split him up from Han Gyul’s mother: “I’d like for Han Gyul not to go through the same.” Han Gyul’s mother mentions meeting Eun Chan, and tells Grandma: “At first, I thought she was completely wrong for Han Gyul, but looking at her, she’s cheerful and straightforward. I found her comfortable.” She compares her to Yu Ju, who has a few difficult points, whereas Eun Chan is pleasant and easy to be around.

 

Yu Ju invites Han Gyul to come with her and Han Sung while she tries on bridal gowns. Initially he declines, but hearing Eun Chan wistfully say she’d like to wear a nice dress too makes him change his mind. Again, his imagination takes off:

 

 
But alas, it’s Yu Ju wearing the dress, not Eun Chan.

 

 
Han Gyul watches the happy couple enviously, and suggests that Eun Chan try a dress on, too. It’s like Han Gyul is so bursting with the idea of marriage that he can’t stop himself, and he blurts:

Han Gyul: “Do you want to wear one of those and marry me?”
Eun Chan: “What?”
Han Gyul: “Marry me, Go Eun Chan.”
Eun Chan: “Are you… proposing?”

Han Sung (thoroughly enjoying the scene, particularly Han Gyul’s discomfort), breaks in to note that Han Gyul sure is in a hurry to get married, but this proposal is all wrong. Han Gyul tells Eun Chan not to answer right away; he’s just telling her to think about it. She starts to say, “What’s there to think about?” but he stops her from answering, most likely assuming her answer will be negative, and tells her to think it over carefully.

 

Eun Chan says she was gonna say yes, but then goes on (teasingly) that it’s a good thing he stopped her. He’s difficult to please, and it would be tiring marrying him: “Cancel that.” The happily engaged, ignored couple watch as Eun Chan runs out of the room, and Han Gyul chases her.

 

Han Sung and Yu Ju drop by the Choi residence to deliver their good news to the adults. The family suggests a nice, small wedding between close family and friends, which suits the couple. Furthermore, I love how when Han Sung drops news of Yu Ju’s pregnancy, everyone is happy to hear it (no moralistic preachiness about premarital blah-blah-blah).

Granny makes a jab at how she’s displeased with Han Gyul, and Han Gyul takes the opportunity to do a little reverse psychology. He grumbles about Eun Chan’s stubbornness over diligently repaying his loan (and insisting on giving him interest!), how she’s always hounding him to save money and not be so wasteful, how she won’t indulge him to go out and play because she’s so engrossed in her studies…

At Grandma’s continued disapproval, Han Gyul appeals to her to reconsider. Yu Ju praises Eun Chan, as does Han Sung, and Han Gyul counts all those in favor — Yu Ju, Han Sung, his father… and notes with excitement that his mother seems to have changed her mind. She admits she gives half her consent.

 

Eun Chan tells her sister about her proposal, and figures they can get married in another five years. Or maybe four, if five is too long. Eun Sae sighs in frustration — four years? Is he going to wait for her for so long?: “How is it you know less of the world than I do?”

Meanwhile, Han Gyul goes ring shopping.

 

 

 

 
Arriving for Han Sung and Yu Ju’s wedding, Han Gyul works up his nerve and fumbles, flustered, as he puts a ring on Eun Chan’s finger (in a hilarious bit, he panics when it doesn’t fit right, upset that he got the wrong size, until Eun Chan corrects him — he’s got the wrong finger).

Eun Chan assumes it’s a couple ring, but Han Gyul asks: “Will you be my bride?”

 

Eun Chan smiles and nods shyly, and he smiles in relief. They walk along happily together — for about a second. Because Eun Chan alludes to a wedding in four or five years, stopping Han Gyul short, confused: “Four, five years? But I’m going to get married this year.”

Eun Chan can’t imagine getting married so soon — she has things to do with her life, she’s too young. Wasn’t he intending to marry later?

 

Inside the hall, Han Gyul’s grandmother finally falters under the pains that have been plaguing her all episode long…

 

Unaware of this, Han Gyul and Eun Chan continue their discussion. He suggests talking through each point thoughtfully. Why does she want to wait five years?

Eun Chan answers that she’d only ever worked to make money to support her family, but now she finally has a dream of her own, and that’s to become a good barista. Han Gyul tells her she can still do those things after getting married — and if she’s worried about her family, he’ll take responsibility for them.

Eun Chan: “Responsibility? How? For how long? It’s better not to make promises you can’t keep. Will you live forever, and never die?”
Han Gyul: “What?”
Eun Chan: “My father said he’d take responsibility for our family forever. But he couldn’t do that. A person can’t take responsibility over another person. You can only take responsibility for yourself. Until I can accomplish things on my own, I won’t marry.”

She starts to walk off, and he holds her back, telling her:

Han Gyul: “I’ve already talked to my family, and gotten the adults’ consent. All you have to do is agree, and we can get married right now, with no problems.”
Eun Chan: “You already told your family? Marry right now? How can you do that to me, without even telling me? This is unbelievable.”
Han Gyul: “Unbelievable? You said yourself that you would marry me. Was that an empty promise?”
Eun Chan: “That didn’t mean I’d marry you right now. How can you decide that on your own? Is my family that laughable to you?”

Eun Chan storms off, leaving Han Gyul to yell after her, “Hey! Stop right there!”

 

Additional thoughts:

Here’s what I think of this latest development. I’ve seen comments from people who are gradually starting to “bore” or tire of the recent plot turns, because the fact that Eun Chan and Han Gyul are happily dating reduces the angst of the prior episodes. Yes, that’s true, but I will heartily disagree with the stance that “they got together too early” or “they’re running out of story,” because that supposes that there’s no story worth telling after a couple’s initial realization of their feelings for each other. That argument would also force Coffee Prince into a story mold that I’ve seen before (couple meets, struggles as they develop feelings for each other, realizes they’re in love, happy end). I’ve already grown tired of that version of boy meets girl. I wanted Coffee Prince to do something different, and they’re doing it.

What I particularly dislike is when a series does the opposite and ends entirely too abruptly. There’s a lot more to love than the declaration thereof, and stories that crescendo suddenly with a tearful reunion and avowal of adoration belittle the stuff that comes afterward. What I enjoy about this development is that Eun Chan and Han Gyul have to now work through a very real conflict, one with no winner and no right answer. Despite the fact that they clearly love each other, they’re at different points in their lives right now, with different priorities. Heck, it took Yu Ju and Han Sung ten years to finally get on the same page about their future together.

I don’t doubt that we’ll get a satisfactorily happy ending. I have my own ideas about how that’ll come about, but frankly I’m satisfied not speculating, and would rather just see how things play out. But I do appreciate that I’m not being shortchanged on the relationship developments that occur after a couple falls for each other, because that’s a part of their love story, too.

Of course, you’re all free to disagree.

at 5 min. 30 sec. did you notice what a resonant singing voice SunKi has? and his english (singing Coffee and Tea) was effortless. i wanted him to sing more.
The series has already peaked for me- a few episodes - however, having said this - i continue to enjoy my time with these characters, and watch enthusiastically. (and a great deal of this pleasure has to do with your episodic recaps.) thanks again!
I keep looping SunKi's singing. sultry singing grabs my heart everytime.

Wow Javabeans... you're getting faster and faster!! Thanks so much!! I totally agree - I looooove Han Gyul's reactions in this episode.
When he was first yelling at Eun Chan on the phone after she leaves his house he's like ONE! TWO! TWO AND A HALF! [Eun Chan hangs up] HEY! YOU! [suddenly realising she's no longer on the line] he suddenly becomes quiet and subdued, testing the line - hello?

Also he has the most awesomely expressive face ever (especially love the fantasising look ;)) that should be made into mood icons.

And in the cafe when he responds to Eun Chan's jokey reply to his proposal question he's like fine. Be like that. Go. And after a kiss he seems satisfied and tells her again - go. But then he pulls her back!! Into a full body hug! And says Don't go~~!.

And I suppose more to Han Gyul's reactions is the couple's dynamics - because Eun Chan totally knows how to provoke those reactions in him, and he knows how to respond to her teasing too. It was soooo cute in the bridal shop when he was like, aren't you shy at all? And Eun Chan's like... aww boss... of course I'm shy too hahahaha and he was like think about it! Where else are you gonna find a guy as great as me! And she's like... *barf* And strolls out. And he gets so mad he chases her out and even slips on the way out - and she immediately turns back, sees he's ok, and continues on her way. Heee I LOVE seeing them bicker it drives me nuts.

And Eun Chan's reaction when she first finds out Yu Ju's pregnant? Priceless, the way she was like O_O and her hands went straight to her face was hilarious, super adorable, extremely rewindable, and shoots my vocab to pieeeces.

And Han Sung too. Crap I'm practically narrating the show and I just can't stop grinning at it in my head... He was such an adorable DORK in this episode - his reaction to his colleague's baby (whatever song was playing there, it was awesome!), his reaction to Yu Ju's proposal - both before her and in the call to Han Gyul. And in the bridal shop - he was literally AGOG staring at Yu Ju..

Javabeans you always hit the nail on the head - this entire episode was about reactions (not that previous ones weren't eg when Han Gyul's dad found out about Eun Chan but it's especially prevalent in this one) I don't see how any mother can not be satisfied by Eun Chan's response. And I think it's very sensible of her, and certainly reflects her character, that's used to thinking about her family. When Han Gyul swore to take care of them forever and she's like yeah? That's what my dad said too? And I was like... oh yeah. .__. Love how the mothers's first reaction to Yu Ju's pregnancy is excitement, and she knows grandma well enough to zoom straight into the positive - you're going to be a great-grandma! And granny lives up to expectations and just in quiet approval asks after her health.

Loveitloveitloveit. Love you!!!! Thanks so much Javabeans. Waaah can't wait to get the DVD

who's losing interest? who's getting bored?
me? no way... in fact i am much more excited as before..can't wait for the next episodes...
i agree with those who said.. there is no such thing as "happily ever after"
i think we all know that isn't true.. even the real Prince and Princesses know it..
.. what's good with the plot right know, the writer actually tells us what happens next ..after the kiss.. after the revelation.. after the make up..
what keeps me addicted... the natural build up of a mature relationship...
both emotionally and physically...the fight over money , pride , self esteem, priorities

my major concern though... now we know both HG and Ec have diffrenet priorities ryt now.. how will they compromise each other...
i'm a bit worried about EC's priorities though... we all know she's independent and all that but i actually get HG's point too... it seems to me he was just saying..
in my own words..."you have your priorities, where do i fit in"
i don't know if it is because of my age but i HG has shown us how far he would go for loving EC ...
but so far we haven't seen EC take the risk.... we know she's got a family to support and all that .. but then again... what's the point of having someone to share evrything with?

i am all for empowerment and independence esp for women but makes me think sometimes .. in case of EC , does this mean HG will always be no 2 with regards to EC's ambition and family?

oh welll so much for drama...

Thanks for the summary! I can't believe we're down to just two more episodes (three if you'll include the special). Eun Chan is so pretty wearing skirt. Hope she'll wear more girly clothes.

P.S. If Eun Chan doesn't want to get married, Han Kyul oppa, I'm very much willing to marry you! LOL! =p

Oh oh oh!! I forgot to say! I love the way Eun Chan disrupts Han Gyul's pretty-bride fantasy at the shop, by peeking her head out of the curtains (in a very cartoonish kinda way) and going in typically Eun Chan-ish fashion omg!!!! Unni is soo gorgeous!! Hahahaha

I love it that we see past the initial revelation and actually see how a 'smooth-sailing' relationship progresses.. I mean in other somewhat satisfying dramas eg Delightful Girl Chun Hyang, yeah we get our happy ending, but we see their marriage though we don't really know if they've got what it takes to make a relationship work (since we barely saw them at it, between the denials and the disapprovals) and in My Girl - well they just got together after overcoming opposition, but I think there must be more possible problems in a relationship that parental disapproval. I think (I HOPE!!) this will be a drama that can live forever that won't stop awkwardly where we'll be convinced that whatever happens - they know how to handle it together!! Instead of just making the assumption that once together - or even married - it'll all be A-OK.

again, thank u so much javabeans.. only 2 more episodes to go and i'm already feeling sad that it's ending soon :(

i love how Coffe Prince has taken us to the "and they live happily ever after" theme after the 1st declaration of love. to be honest, that doesn't work for me anymore as i got older coz i know what reality is.. i understand Ec and HK but i think they'll be able to resolve the issue by the word "compromise".. i feel it will be best if they wait perhaps a year (for EC to accomplish what she feels she needs to do for herself and her family and for HK to completely commit to managing the coffee shop and letting go of his dream as a toy designer) then get married.. after that none of them would feel cheated of any opportunity :) then we can really say "and they live happily ever after"

Great Job Coffee Prince!

i don't get what the fuss is about - in the next episode preview - you can clearly see EC and HG hugging so that must mean they've come to some kind of compromise.
as for this cup, i was a bit let down when she accused HG of not being able to keep his promises cuz of what happened with her dad. it seemed a bit ridiculous and forced - said only to convince the viewers of her stance. it's like she forgot what this guy gave up for her in the previous episode. why cant she just become a barista right after marriage? - i just dont see the problem. it's not like HG is gonna hold her back from her dreams. it's just not fair for him to make a huge sacrifice and she doesnt even make allowances for one...
and those 2 fantasy scenes were cute but i really hate when previews mislead you and you think it's gonna happen for real and then it's a daydream......gaaawwdddd....
i swear this drama better end well without any loose ends....i want definitive closure for this story.
one other thing - you would think a drama that began with some progressive intent would carry it through and have a more realistic outcome - i mean seriously - who in this day and age would actually believe that EC would be so naive about life at 24? of course people have intimacy and children before marriage...her sister seems to know more for pete's sake....ok i need to snap out of it and remind myself this is FICTION
anyway looked forward to what you would say about this cup last night and as expected - you are very supportive and i admire you for that -not letting arbitrary relationship glitches get in the way is something i need to work on.

I DON'T THINK HAN GYUL'S HORMONE IS THE REASON WHY HE WANTS TO MARRY EUN CHAN -- IT'S JUST THAT HE REALLY LOVES HER AND THE URGE OF BEING WITH HER TOGETHER NOT JUST AT WORK BUT AT HOME AS WELL --TALK ABOUT 24/7. AS FOR EUN CHAN'S HESITATION IN MARRYING HIM RIGHT AWAY -- IT IS NORMAL ESPECIALLY WITH HER SITUATION TO HAVE THOSE THOUGHTS OF NOT MARRYING YET AND TO PURSUE HER DREAM.... THIS IS NOT JUST AN OPINION BUT I'M BASING IT FROM EXPERIENCE -- PURSUING & ACCOMPLISHING YOUR GOAL WHILE SINGLE AND AS A MARRIED WOMAN ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS. AS A SINGLE WOMAN OTHER THAN YOUR PRESENT RESPONSIBILITY OR PRIORITY, YOUR TIME IS ALL YOURS TO COMPLETE WHATEVER YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH... BUT AS A MARRIED WOMAN, YOUR PRIORITIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES WILL BOTH CHANGE. IF YOU TRULY WANT TO PURSUE YOUR DREAM, YOU WILL ALSO HAVE TO CONSIDER NOW YOUR PARTNER NOT JUST YOUR OWN OR ELSE IF YOU GO ON YOUR OWN WAY -- THE RELATIONSHIP WILL NOT FLOURISH. WITH EUN CHAN'S INSTANT REACTION -- FOR HER IT IS A DISTRACTION.... IF HAN GYUL IS TRULY SINCERE TO SUPPORT HER IN PURSUING IT ALL THE WAY THEN THERE WILL BE NO PROBLEM ALL EUN CHAN NEEDS TO DO IS TO OPENLY ACCEPTS HIS SINCERITY AND WILLINGNESS TO SUPPORT HER.... I REALLY ADORE THE WRITER COZ SHE DOESN'T JUST WRITE IT LIKE OTHER'S WOULD DO -- SHE OBVIOUSLY THOUGHT A LOT ABOUT ALL THIS -- REALISTICALLY!

Thanks much javabeans!
What I like in this series is that it's very close to reality.
One thing though, I was hoping Eun Chan would wear a very feminine dress (with her boyish attitude and cute face, it would have been adorable hehe). She looked very pretty in that dress Han Sung bought for her in one of the earlier episodes.

This is my first comment about CP. I only started watching last week because I'm an avid fan of Sarah and she seemed to love it so. I definitely like it and waited for today's episode with great anticipation like others.

Having said that, like all kdramas and American TV shows, it is just entertainment - it's not a documentary for heaven's sake. People have commented how much more "realistic" CP is because it is showing struggles of a relationship after confirmation of love, etc. Yet, really, it's not more realistic but rather mroe entertaining in a very different way than your typical kdrama.

I agree with many things stated by #59 jk as well.

I totally agree with you! I really hate cliché endings - this drama is by far the best unique storyline that deals with real life issues. They might seem unhappy now, but the issue with Eun Chan and Han Gyul will definitely be resolved, especially at the pace its going.
~~I know that all korean dramas have a protagonist but what I don't understand is why HK grandma is? She like EC before she knew she was a girl, why now? She is stubborn and will probably realize they should be together on her deathbed( if this part falls into the cliche category) I wish for the best out of all characters and can't wait for the following episodes. Thanks Javabeans!! =D

If I were in Eun Chan's shoes, and I can relate to her a little bit, I'd do the same thing. Eun Chan has never been weak. She's been vulnerable at times, but she's grown up strong, focused, and practical. Her character never deviates from these qualities. All of her issues right now...that he could make a decision like that without asking her first, without talking to her family too, without considering her dreams...are so valid. I can't say how much I love her character...there's parts of every strong woman I admire in her! And the point about her father is so important too...she's already been left once with nothing...how could she not prepare herself when life has no guarantee? Eun Chan dreams, loves, flirts, romanticizes...but deep down she knows how to keep it real :)
And if I were a guy in HG's shoes, I'd get him too. After his strange life of secrets and betrayal, when he's found someone he loves and trusts and who makes him feel comfortable and satisfied, who wouldn't want to rush in and start married life? He's almost 30, after all, and his family's responsibility is on him too. HG has never really been a playboy, he was kind of lost at one point but now he's found himself and wants to stay there. So I can see his excitement...but then its only been a few months!
I'm not sure how the PD will take it from here, since like you said there's no real right answer. That interests me a lot. I'm thinking time will play a role, but I want to see how that's brought about. Like the time pull in Sam Soon was the one thing that didn't go down right with me, as much as I still love the show. I'm going to be watching with bated breath to see how this talented woman designs the end.

One more side note: I love how there are so many small stories in parallel that seem to weave in and out and are significant in other places...everything comes together very beautifully and sensibly, with just small things. Like we never meet Yu Ju's mom, but from the small snippets we know we can immediately understand why Yu Ju is wary of marriage, even with a great guy like HS who's been with her so long. If you've seen your parental unit fail so many times, you'd definitely lose hope in the institution of marriage. Yu Ju and Han Sung finally cross that final line after ten years, and their love story, filled with its own trials, is standing next to HG and EC's one month relationship. The PD makes all these wonderful, subtle, lovely points about life, and love and making and maintaining relationships. Its amazing.

Sorry, me again.
With all these comments and fussing coming from all of you, this shows that the write of CP and Javabeans have done a great job in writing. Like #59, jk said it's just a friction. So enjoy and love the drama. Once again, thank you Javabeans.

Finally, the drama is taking a real turn. I was starting to think the last few episodes were getting too sweet and unreal. I love the fact that they touch on the issues of differing priorities. It's real and I want to see how they are going to work through this.

Love this show, sweet, subtle but real enough :)

Thanks Javabeans for your insightful and in-depth breakdown of this episode. I also agree and like how the thread is going for coffee prince (EC finding herself first before getting married). Speaking from experience, it's better to know oneself before marriage otherwise marriage can sometimes swallow you up. I love coffee prince because it is one of the most realistic and eloquently writen K-drama I have seen. Of course having actors who look incredible and can actually act does help.

I have been reading your recaps and love the comments that comes with it. I have really enjoyed the journey with you for Coffee Prince. It's going to be sad when all this ends. Keep up the great work and love your writing.

lol... there's realism in the story i.e. in how characters interact but how's this story so realistic? Isn't it chock full of all kdrama cliches from brothers/cousins in love with the same girl (twice!), fairy tale story of a rich prince falling in love with a poor-ish girl, parental disapproval (grandma) and a host of others? In addition, it's the story of a tomboy who's mistaken for a boy but still manages to bag the rich, straight prince.

It's a nice story and I'm enjoying it but it's really not that realistic. Even their so-called huge conflict... what's so big about it? They both want to get married (after a very short courtship) but are yet to agree on a time. It happens, sure, but what's so special about this situation? Hore often than not, one wants marriage and the other doesn't so they break up. Even the couple with the unplanned pregnancy are getting married (as many do). If you want conflict, how about one wanting to keep the baby and the other wanting an abortion?

The show has been done in a nice, refreshing way but it's really not showing the struggles of a relationship. It's gone from A to Z in a matter of minutes, after all, there are so many more issues couples deal with before even thinking about marriage. Just because a seemingly saccharine sweet couple has a fight doesn't mean they are showing some great struggles or anything.

Han kyul's reaction after finding out yu joo was pregnant was just too cute! does anyone know what phone han kyul has?

ok...how in the world can anyone get bored with this series. i can barely stop giggling...my bro was like SHUT THE EFFERS UP!!!! goodness, that little bed scene was the cutest little scene in all of kdrama history...in my opinion. and the actors are so amazing, this show should win lots and lots of awards.

without you dramabeans, i would be lying on the ground whimpering because i have no idea what they're saying. haha thanks for the summary :)

Anonymous @ 77:
I kinda see where you're coming from, but the sad thing about cliches is everything that was once clever and original attains this status eventually from misuse. Even the one for abortion, one for keeping the baby scenario you offered has been tackled several times in Korean dramas.

As more and more Korean dramas are produced creating one that is fresh enough that captures attention gets more and more difficult given the greater likelihood that something's been done before. I admit that the premise of this drama seems gimmicky and preposterous and it does appear to use the same stock k-drama materials. But the devil's in the details (another cliche) and what makes this drama stand out is the way the material was handled. For example, I thought the gay angle was handled very maturely, giving real insight into the character's struggles, instead of going for the camp/quasi-homophobic reaction that I've seen from many asian productions, assuming that that's the kind of fare the mainstream audience would identify with.

I think this drama gives the audience enough credit to appreciate the painstaking touches it includes to make the plot while not entirely plausible (given the rarity of chaebols and all, suspension of reality is a necessity) certainly possible and fathomable. In k-drama terms, 'fresh' is probably relative - to the other dramas that've been there, done that. And while the marriage issue is not new, as you said more often than not one's for, one's against, so they end up breaking up. Thus leaving thousands of audience members irritated/baffled/confused/etc.

While it may seem as though Han Gyul's taking this kinda fast, I think in his situation it's not unrealistic, and it looks as if they're both gonna be mature enough NOT to discount their mutual respect and affection, and to find an acceptable compromise.

And the great struggles is not in their fighting... I think we've seen much greater emotional turmoil in earlier episodes when Han Gyul was struggling with being possibly gay, and Eun Chan was debating whether or not to tell him she's a girl. I think their history to this point has been woven into their relationship, and are part of the issues in the relationship they've tackled together before considering marriage. It's not in the epic fights but in the reasoning I think if that makes sense? They're not exactly making a mountain out of a molehill here. Han Gyul and Eun Chan both have their own understandable points of view, and they just want each other to know it. They'll work it out from there.

Err. Just my two cents though ^^; or maybe twenty .__. conciseness is a virtue I need to pick up soon

Thanks for your recaps which are a godsend for nonKoreans like me. If the drama ended with no HG/EC wedding, I'd be ok with that. Like MNIKSS drama ending without the walk down the aisle I didn't feel let down. I'm adoring the display of love by the men in this drama HG , HS, Sun Ki and even Mr. Gu.
I've been a kdrama addict since March 07 and have bought out YA's available DVDs w/Eng subs for my region. You've helped me with the music too as I like your choices. Your speedy summaries (and, today you outdid yourself) are appreciated particularly your take on what's happening and, of course, I can't help but enjoy the posted comments! Can't wait until tomorrow am to see just how many more posts there will be.

i totally agree with java beans analysis. a love story doesn't have to end in finally revealing their emotions to each other and being all too happy after that.
in real life, it's not "and they live happily ever after" all the time, there is always the conflict and the "realities" that everyone has to face after professing love to each other.
in fact this is what make a "genuine love story", not just how it all started but the journey while inside the relationship. the reall challenge is how to sustain the love after the first beat (if you know what i mean).
i do hope the writers will do something to interest and not bore the viewers in the "treatment" they are making with the drama.
thanks javabeans for all the summary. you just make people happy with all your efforts.
keep it up.

first thing i did this morning (at least it is morning where i am right now), was check your summary as i know subtitles aren't available - yet. and i was sorely disappointed upon seeing there wasn't any. then i recalled how you go about the process of mounting your summaries and told myself to have a little patience. alas! after just about 20 minutes, i checked your site again... and there it is - the 15th cup... ha!

anyway... i completely agree with your take on the story's development. and it is nice to "watch" the guy getting so worked up about their relationship for a change. as it is in real life and in most shows/stories, it is always the girl worrying - about the status of their relationship, marriage, choosing the man over a career if not having any altogether. and in most cases , a girl seem to always be readily available for marriage. i just love how the writer turned the table this time. with yu ju being indecisive about marriage and all while han sung was all for it.as are ec and hg. it really is sweet how the guys are doing all the worrying this time. hhmmm!

For the first time, this episode reflects Ms. Lee Sun Mi's personal opinion on the expectations society placed on a woman in a relationship. It has been said before that by penning the script for the drama, she was given the opportunity for more in-depth developments on the characters as well as their relationships. It is refreshing to see that the adaptation of the novel ends early (around episode 12) to make room for a more mature discussion on the love/marriage tandem. We have been appreciating how progressive CP is in dealing with the homosexuality issue, i am equally as impressed on how the writer is exploring the real difficulties women are facing in the 21st century in deciding between career and marriage. This is where i believe these two women (director and scriptwriter) are subtly and indeed intelligently encouraging the discussion of these issues.

Personally, i sided with Eun Chan in this episode. Since the beginning, we have seen how Eun Chan has been financially and emotionally supporting her family. She did not have time to spend on herself. Now, she finally has the opportunity to establish her own self worth and identity. She needs time to find herself and to grow as a person before committing to another human being. I just love that Eun Chan strongly feels that she (and no one else) is ultimately responsible for herself. It is out of respect for Han-Gyul as well as the institution of marriage in general that Eun Chan is seriously considering her decision. Unfortunately, we are once again reminded of how fragile love can be and that we must enter marriage on an independent and equal footing with our partner.

Javabeans, agree with you wholeheartedly... but on the other hand, i would not mind an UNhappy ending if it is going to be treated as intelligently and maturely as the last 15 episodes. Thank you so much for your thoughtful synopsis and analysis.

i've been a lurker for a while...and i gotta say kudos to you javabeans for all your hardwork and insightful thoughts and analysis...

This drama continues to amaze me! As a certified korean drama addict, I can attest that this drama is as real as it can get. I've never watched any drama where I feel like I am part of their daily lives. This drama possesses the complete package: star studded cast, superb acting, awesome awesome storyline, enough said!

I love how Coffee Prince tackles all aspects of a relationship. After watching almost 40 korean dramas, I've noticed that usually after the two leads have professed theor feeling for one another they will have that very blissful episode. After that you can bet that, the leads will encounter "unrealistic challenges" and of course parental disapproval. I mean most kdrama storylines are full of cliches and are already very passe. I'm just glad that finally Coffee Prince has broken the curse.hehe

What i love about this episode is, it shows that marriage is really a serious matter for a couple to really take things slow and not rush anything. Gotta give credit to EC's fortitude and not accept HK's proposal because she still have many obligations and goals in life. I really think that in a relationship, especially when you are getting into marriage, it's very important that before you get into that big commitment that, as an individual you are already complete. I really believe that you enter a relationship not because your partner completes you but because your partner makes you a better a person. I think this is what EC is going through. She does not feel like she is "complete" yet, eventhough she really loves HK, she still can't fully commit to him, since part of her is still missing. She even pointed out that "she wants to become worthy of him." I mean, HK can for sure fill her empty heart but he can't fulfill her dreams for her.

I dont think that Eun Chan is playing difficult to Han Gyul's idea of early marriage, proving one's self-worth is not a bad idea either. Anyway, with barely a few more episodes left, let's just wait and see how the ending will turn out... I'm pretty sure it will be worthwhile. Thank you JAVABEANS... it's been worthwhile too reading your recap/summary.

Those of us who want to make an issue about what gets called "realism" or "truth to reality" in this drama aren't naively mistaking it for, let alone comparing it to, something called "real life". This is art and, whatever "culture" snobs may think, it's art of a high order (as are also the interpretations and reflections javabeans weaves around the production's achievements). Yes: it's invention. But the key point about artistic invention, as contrasted to random "making things up", is that it has an element of discovery as well as construction. It helps us make more sense of our "real" lives by condensing out and celebrating aspects of our ordinary experience that, in "reality", are more fragmented, dispersed, and pretty often messy. So in a way, when we praise CP for "realism" we are in the same breath saying that it isn't "realistic" in a prosaic sense and is all the better for that.

One way narrative and dramatic art has always worked its refining magic is by resuming and modifying the patterns of earlier art. Set any selection of Kdramas against Shakespeare's plays, and on a hackneyed-plot-motif-count competition the Bard of Avon will win hands down. To clichés, add rampant plagiarism. He appropriated whole chunks, not only of familiar stories, but also of works by now long-forgotten contemporaries playing in theatres just down the street. He would have been scorned in Soompi forums for that. But unjustly, because in art it doesn't matter what you borrow, or even steal: it's what you make out of your materials and what you show through your making that counts. And it's the ability to pinpoint with acute perception and apparent ease just what has been made, and to tease out eloquently and with lightness of touch just what that making shows us, that explains why this blog and its marvellously gited author bring so much delight to so many people all over the world.

Ditto, beautifully put! We should never live or realize our partner's dreams and forget our own. We are after all individuals before we were wives, mothers, drivers and housekeepers!

Thank you for your summary. Those are lifesavers until the English subs come along. I've tried watching with Chinese subs but ended up missing more of the show, so I've given that up.
Re your "additional thoughts" - Very well said (if only I could be so eloquent... sigh...). Your words expressed my thoughts exactly. My Mom stopped watching because the storyline is not deep enough, and my sister thinks there's not enough drama. I disagree. Not every moment of one's life has to be deep, meaningful, or full of drama (don't know about you guys, but I'd expire from the emotional roller-coaster if that was so). Sometimes, it's nice to have some lighthearted and fun moments, no more meaning to that. As for EC's and HG's relationship, it's so refreshing to see that playfulness and affection - esp. in a touchy-feely way - in k-drama. Often times, I've gotten frustrated waiting for the k-drama couples to just hold hands (what era are we in?)! Sure, I love happy-endings. But as I've gotten older, I've realized that the story doesn't just end there. And that's one of the reasons why CP is a great drama. Oh... I could go on and on...
Anyhow, thank you again, Javabeans!

thanks for the summary.
i just got done watching the episode, it's really hard to understand korean but after watching too much of it you kind of learn to pick up words and by the time you realize it, you can practically understand somewhat sixty percent of what they are saying, plus the fact that their acting can just tell you so much of the story already.
thanks again. now i can understand some of the scene that i didn't quite catch.
i really find korean drama really interesting, so interesting that i want to learn the language. though i find most korean drama to have the same story it is still fun to watch. between watching korean, japanese, taiwanese, and philippine drama i find korean drama more appealing.
and ever since i accidentally stumble into your sight i find it entertaining to be reading summary, reviews and your opinion about kdrama everyday or atleast everytime you post a new one. hope to read more of your reviews and kdrama recommendation in the future. thanks again

HI EVERYONE...
JUST THINKING HOW THE PREVIEWS FOR EPISODE 15 GOT ME (AND OTHERS OUT THERE) CRAZY ON WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT --> I'M REFERRING TO THE BED SCENE.. HEHE. I SORT OF HAD THE INSTINCT THAT IT WILL JUST NOT HAPPEN YET... AND IT REALLY DIDN'T -- THAT IT WERE ALL JUST HANKYUL'S IMAGINATION.. SIGH!!! THEY REALLY KNOW HOW TO KEEP VIEWERS GLUED TO WATCHING COFFEE PRINCE THRU THOSE PREVIEWS AND GOT US ALL EXPECTING.. HEHE.
ANYWAYS, FAST FORWARD... THIS EPISODE IS ACTUALLY OKAY WITH ME.. ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT AS HYPER AS THE PREVIOUS ONES, IT STILL GOT ME GLUED ON IT. THIS EPISODE SAYS JUST LIKE "HEY, LET'S GET TO THE REALITY OKAY" --> LIFE & LOVE S NOT ABOUT BEING ALWAYS MUSHY MUSHY SWEET --> THE COUPLE ALSO NEEDS TO EXPERIENCE TOUGH MOMENTS AND FACE THE ISSUES OF THEIR DIFFERENCES.
EUN CHAN POINTS IT OUT ON HAN KYUL (WHO IS TOO EXCITED AND ANXIOUS TO MARRY EUN CHAN) ABOUT HER SITUATION. SHE'S TALKING ABOUT RESPONSIBILITY HERE -- AND GIVING HER FATHER AS AN EXAMPLE, IT'S NOT REALLY EASY TO JUST TAKE HER FAMILY FOR GRANTED. HAN KYUL SURE CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT SHE'S BEEN THINKING SINCE HE GREW UP WITHOUT MUCH OF WHAT EUN CHAN HAD GONE THRU FOR HER FAMILY. AT SOME POINT TOO, SHE IS AT THE AGE OF SELF DISCOVERY, ON WHAT SHE WANTED TO DO FOR HER LIFE AND FOR HER FUTURE. THEIR AGE GAP IS ALSO AN ISSUE HERE SINCE HAN GYUL IS MUCH OLDER THAN HER AND IS IN THE RIGHTFUL AGE TO MARRY YET TO HER, IT SEEMS KIND OF LITTLE BIT EARLY.
FOR HAN GYUL'S RESCUE, I SOMEWHAT SEE THE POINT OF HAN SUNG: "IF ONLY A GIRL CAN LEAN ON A GUY A LITTLE BIT". SURE EUN CHAN HAD BEEN INDEPENDENTLY TOUGH ALL HER LIFE AND IT'S NOT EASY TO CHANGE THAT. IT'S ALREADY IN HER CHARACTER. THE TOPIC OF BEING SUBMISSIVE IS BEING POINTED OUT HERE SOMEHOW. BY LOOKING INTO HAN KYUL'S (ADOPTIVE) MOTHER, SHE IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM EUN CHAN. IT'S LIKE "WELCOME TO THE NEW AGE -- WHERE WOMEN CAN ALSO BE THE SAME STATUS/THINKING AS GUYS WOULD".
WELL... I SURE AM BABBLING HERE NOW.. LET'S SEE WHAT THE NEXT EPIS WILL BRING US.

by the way, i was just thinking though, there is this picture of all the casts (all in one pile), where i saw 1 more character that haven't appeared yet (or maybe i haven't seen yet - Correct me if i'm wrong)...
check this link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/582421281/
she's in the bottom right corner (beside the girl that always pestered Han Kyul from the early episodes -- and below mr hong)...

i like this story simply because it's realistic! A couple can't always be having arguments right??? unlike other dramas that always have conflicts after conflicts, arguments and never ending misunderstandings, this drama is different. it shows the developments of a couple in a realistic way, there are arguments and conflicts but it does not cross the line of too much because in the real world if a couple have too much problems, conflicts and misunderstanding might as well break up rather than torture each other... what i also like about this drama is that it gives every character a time to shine... the story does not revolve only on the two main characters....

thanks for the wonderful summary! i agree with your thoughts about this drama....
it is superb! actually, i'm really addicted to this drama!
