Lee Seon-kyun presents Pasta staff with gifts
Lee Seon-kyun, who is headlining MBC’s Pasta, has given gifts to the drama staff, just as the show is about to go on the air this week. The presents of 70 jackets were given on January 1 and Lee explained, “This winter is especially cold and the staff is suffering through it as they film. As the lead actor, I prepared this gift to show that I’m thankful and also sorry.”
Meanwhile, the drama has added another cast member to act as a friend and support to Gong Hyo-jin’s character, Jung Da-hye of cable show Rude Miss Young-ae. She is fired only a day into her job as the kitchen’s fourth-ranked staffer by the main chef Choi Hyun-yeok (Lee Seon-kyun). This is a common occurrence with the bad-tempered chef, who has similarly fired three other women; Jung Da-hye joins them in forming a sort of club under the motto, “Kill Choi Hyun-yeok.”
Pasta premieres tomorrow, January 4.
