Synopsis

At 29, Kim Sam-Soon’s career and love life has hit a dead end. She is overweight, unmarried, saddled with an embarrassingly old-fashioned name, and has just lost her job. On Christmas Eve, she catches her boyfriend of three years cheating on her, and promptly breaks up with him. Something has got to give. Enter Hyun Jin-Heon (Hyun Bin), the arrogant 27-year old owner of a restaurant called Bon Appetit, who hires her to put her French-pastry-chef skills to work as the restaurant’s chief baker. Stubborn and opinionated, the two individuals rapidly go head to head, fighting over cooking styles and almost everything else under the sun, but in the midst of all the arguments and ingredients flying around, something warmer starts simmering. When Jin-Heon gets pressured by his family to get married and Sam-Soon needs 50 million won to redeem her mother’s house from debt, Jin-Heon decides to hire her to act as his girlfriend, and the two sign a dating contract. Things get complicated however when Jin-Heon’s ex-girlfriend returns from the U.S. with her sights set on getting him back, and when Sam-Soon’s ex-boyfriend and a new admirer appear in her life.
