Kang Tae Young (Kim Jung Eun) is a cheerful and energetic young woman studying film in Paris. To make ends meet, she becomes a housekeeper for the suave millionaire Han Ki Joo (Park Shin Yang). Ki Joo soon fires her as a housekeeper, but hires her to pose as his girlfriend for business reasons. The two become unexpectedly attracted to each other, but the relationship falls through due to some misunderstandings. Soon, they both return to Korea. Meeting again by chance, the love that began in Paris finally has the chance to bloom in Korea. Unfortunately, though Ki Joo and Tae Young's love for each other is simple and sincere, the world around them is complicated. Ki Joo's laid-back nephew Yoon Soo Hyuk (Lee Dong Gun) has eyes for Tae Young, and tries hard to separate them. Ki Joo encounters many challenges with his business. In addition, Ki Joo's family greatly disapproves of Tae Young and her humble background. Can Tae Young and Ki Joo hold on to their love, or is it nothing more than a memory left behind in Paris?

A disappointing ending didn't kill it

Lovers in Paris sparked my interest for Korean dramas, and that says a lot about this drama. It's funny, romantic, engaging, and a definite must watch.

STORY - The story is the typical poor girl/rich guy love story that everyone has seen before, with a touch of comedy. Although the story may be typical, the way it was executed was refreshing, including the location. But honestly, with or without its wonderful location (Paris), this drama would have been successful anyway because the script was just well written. The "romantic" conversations between the two main leads are well... sweet and doesn't suffer from being too cheesy like others tend to do. But, like every other Korean dramas or every other dramas in general, Lovers in Paris suffers from being draggy at times. It feels like the episodes before the last episode dragged a bit even though it was the revelation part. The most disappointing part about this drama was the finale. You get excited to watch the final episode because of how good the drama is and how good it was built up to the ending, but when you finally you watch it, you'll end up being confused (atleast I did). I don't think it's a bad ending though, but it was disappointing and it could have been better.

CAST - At first I thought the two main leads looked too old for this kind of genre (romantic comedy), especially KJE with her clumsy self and her expressions, but surprisingly, it worked! The main lead (Park Shin Yang) may not be the best looking Korean actor out there, but this guy has what you call talent and charisma. And the lead actress (KJE) may not be the most elegant Korean actress, but she is really cute and funny. Together, they're made Lovers in Paris a MUST watch.

MUSIC - Fitting (not much I can comment about).

Overall, I truly enjoyed this drama. It made me laugh, sad, happy, and excited to watch the next episode. Although the ending disappointed me a little, I'd still say this is a must watch drama.
