cory Although I don't speak Korean I absolutely loved this show. American shows, to me, have become a little predictable. The plot was exciting and new. I hope everyone watches this show.

kinnika Wow. I can't believe Im reading "hate" reviews about the lead character, who was JOKING about all the boys in her life which she and her lover obviously shared the same humor and was okay about it! And how "DARE" she live out her dreams (which obviously became her aspiration early on in the series when she started working in the coffee shop) rather than live off men for the rest of her life! That's offensive to even think of think of! Way to send a woman back in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant!

If anyone was manipulative, mean, taunting, sadistic, entitled and bitchy, it was Yoo-Joo! I know they were trying to "turn he around" at the end bit it didn't work with me. My only disappointment was that he didn't dump her butt in the end!

And if course, ya can't ever so living Jae-Wook! Tall and sexy as always!

Great cast! Great series! Sorry for the defensive nose-bleed!

Kim I've seen many Korean dramas by Eun Hye and I think she has been very good with her roles. This is not my #1 favorite drama but it has spontaneous moments. Its worth watching!

Lu Ann I've seen my fair share of kdramas and this was my absolute favorite! (If anyone knows how/where to purchase this series made for DVD players in the US please inform) The characters, script and the way in which it was filmed all drew me. However, they're way too addictive - I actually have to restrain myself between series. Otherwise, I'm watching every available minute I've got! My husband says they're like my own personal brand of "crack". - I say there are worse things.

Anna Marie Fualo I love watching this drama series over and over. I love gong yoo and eun hye together, i hope they will be given the chance to be together again in a drama series. Love them both

sowtha I love lee sun kyun, gong yoo

Aarthy I love gong yoo...........

Chinna Hi Coffee prince, Awesome acting, super performance, i'm from India, I love this series and i like Shami, Harry's character very much. I'm expecting some more episodes of Coffee Prince from the director Lee Yoon Jung, I love "Yoon Eun-Hye" (Shami)... all the best keep going the

Blessings My all time fav k-drama!

ace Decent enough romcom, I suppose. But if I am to be honest I kind of really started to dislike the Yoon Eun-Hye character towards the end. I felt they passed the natural ending point when they then suddenly had her take off to pursue her new dreams. To me it was out of character.

Personally, after all he'd went through for her I was thinking why bother take her back. Abandoned for 2 years while the main communication from her seems to be taunting him about all the men with her. Then twisting his heart out of shape for a joke at the end? She kinda turned into an sadistic entitled b!tch. If they'd wrapped it up without that pointless last attempt at audience manipulation I could have loved this series. The bane of Korean dramas. Never seeming to be able to write a good ending.

But aside from that, it was a pleasant enough show with a good cast.

love-kdrama I will always love this drama... it will always be my number 1

Doreas_13 I love this movie and can watch over and over again. I think Gong Yoo is very sexy in this movie. I hope they make a coffee prince season 2.

mehrnoosh This drama is my first korean drama and of course the best... i can wach this more and more... this move gave me a new view of love i really want to have a guy like gong yoo he is amazing in loving ...

tina I love this drama a lot. Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun Hye are the best couple in Coffe Prince. I am falling love GYEH. I hope Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun Hye will act together on another drama in the future.

Coffee Prince is the most successful drama .I love Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun Hye ( Coffee Prince) so much.

Dammy Wow! I cldnt have asked for more,this drama gave me a new definition of love and tot me how to love again! I love you guys,ure d best!

panda One of the best kdramas of all time. Definitely worth the watch. The plot and acting is just great!

pouff head over heels, kim jae wook you sooooooooo rock in this drama..i watched this and wondered when you'd appear..and the scene with that waffle girl was sweet

Jasmine It's my all time favourite drama. YEH was so great in acting in here. No wonder she had won an excellent award in this drama. I really love the chemistry of YEH and GY. They are still my favourite couple.

boneafor rania I really enjoy this drama .... but I'm kind of chocked about Lee Eon he is died i can't believe am really sorry  :'(

Kevin I watched Lie To Me before watching Coffee Prince. Surprised how so similar how the two shows are. In the end, I think I prefer Lie To Me, but this was a good one too.

Asalah 92 Kim jay wook oppa .. you are amazing actor , you realy confused me in who are you .. I got tired cuz I wana you to stay with your love, at the same time I dont like to see taeceyon oppa broken heart !! But happy ending for the drama .. love you oppa ♥

Asalah 92 I've just started watching this drama .. ita amazing drama .. my fav actress yoon eun hye is the best .. love her persobality in this drama hato watch it

ssyannelf I just came here because of kim jae wook and a parody made by suju loollll hope its a good show ((or i'll just watch cut of my cutie jae wook xD

Imane This is one of my best kdramas ever!! it's so great ! actors are just awesome !! from this drama i felt in love with Yoon Eun Hye and Gong Yoo <33 I don't understand why there are people who don't like it..

real estate investor education And, of course, the hiring of a multiple Realtor's to set up search criteria is now completely eliminated as well. According to World Bank, global economy is likely to expand by 2. Instead put it back into your investment portfolio and let it continue to work for you.

stuffs I don't like this one either. I just wanted to watch Kim Jae Wook and I wish I knew which eps he was in so I could have gone through it easier.

CW This drama is still one of the best K dramas out there. I still love this drama and I've seen many, many K dramas. I love how the storyline follows a group of people, instead of JUST the two main leads, it encompasses everyone involved. This stands out in all areas, the cinematography, directing, writing, acting, etc....all very seamless and very well done. Also, great songs. Just an all around good show. Much Love~

bahar I hate this drama

Je t'aime Finally watched Coffee Prince over the weekend. Not a big fan of long and drawn out dramas, but the characters were funny and engaging. Love the bro-mance and romance of the show. Glad I watched it...sad to see it end :( Super romantic and sweet.

Cogliani All the happy emotions came to me when whatcing this movie so incredibly great to watch both young and old :)

nadia I loved watchn ths so much,I cnt get enuf f t,sooo loving t,t jst makes me laugh over nd over,wish ther was season 2

Lizzy Seriously, this drama touched my heart... deeply ! Ive always loved movies, dramas about some girl who crossdresses as a man, but this drama is simply adorable. And I really love the fact that they made Yoon Eun-Hye and Gong Yoo a couple ! Sweet <3

princess Best series ever. I wish it was a true story. i really enjoyed watching it and I was sad when it ended. Everyone was amazing (all played their parts well). This drama made me want to watch more Korean dramas.

dewa mas i like this Kdrama, so interested..

sama i love this drama .... also i love gong yoo and yoon eun hye ... they are great ......... kisssssssssssss

Ronaldo I agreed with most of the comments. This drama is real good except for the episode which is open ending. Like watching if particularly how those co-workers bonding, supporting and doing their things....I better say that this more on friendship drama. more bubbly less entertaining to watch

Maria Yoon Eun Hye was such a great actress, she portrays her role pretty well, so convincing, that's why she is my no. 1 idol among korean actresses, she did great to all her dramas... I've watched all her dramas except the newest one "I Miss you", and i'll gonna watch it tomorrow.

santino the most romantic drama of YEH ... love her all the way...

Satochi I have just finished watching this and I love the chemistry between the coffee prince staffs, the warm ambience, the friendship, and how they have fun. I also like the relationship between Han Gyul and Eun Chan. Han Gyul (IMHO) is not 100% handsome but very charming in his own way, esp when he teases and protects Eun Chan. I like this drama. Love it a lot :)

Gasenadi The chemistry and tension between the leads in this drama was awesome given the issue of sexual identity, attraction and love that it raises. Very beautifully done.

Anna To answer E Pshlakai, the series was not left up in the air at all. Did she pass the barista exam? Yes, that's why she went home. Did they get married? Yes, again why she went home. Did Han Yoo Joo have a miscarriage? Yes, which is why the reference about not going back to the hospital was made. Presumably she couldn't conceive anymore, but they were both moving on with their lives anyway. Was there a 2nd coffee shop? Yes, Ko Eun Chan asked if it was all going to be ready by September. All the questions were answered in the last 15 minutes of eps 17. Personally, I loved it, and thought the ending was just right.

mayeth g. Would love to see Part 2 of this series .. . . Been a fan of Yoon Eun hye ever since. (though this drama series was shown a few years later than in South Korea. If it can be done it would be a treat to a lot of their fans

SOMEONE @E.Peshlakai I AGREE 100%

E.Peshlakai So how does it end? I spent watching 17 episodes and felt like I was left up in the air? Is the series still continuing? Did she pass the barista exam? Did they get married? Did the cousin who was a music producer, did the wife have a miscarriage? Was there a 2nd coffee shop? Feels like I was teased toward some conclusion but nothing. If the 17th episode is really the last episode, I am going to be so regretful of watching it. I'm not watching anymore asian dramas, I don't have the time to be teased. You need to hire better subtitle translaters, their company flashes up on the screen so much, at least it will be a name that a smart film producer/director will stay away from.

kiddyOmalley It's a must! my top fave!

karlita I just finished watching this drama, the story is good and original, i like Gong Yoo a lot but the last 4 episodes are so boring.

adriana i love this, its cute and funny

love all the cast members especially Seon-gyun Lee you are so cute...=^.^=

NightLizard One of the best stories! It is very funny and just interesting, Eun-hye Yun was really like a boy and her acting was great, but Yu Kong was simply marvelous!!! His acting was soooo real...and the moment he started singing in the morning to Eun-hye Yun.... I fell in love, seriously... ^______^
