Would You Like a Cup of Coffee? (2021) Review



“Would you like a cup of coffee?” A character poster with the warmth of Ong Seong-wu and Park Ho-san has been released.

In the poster, Ong Seong-wu, standing in front of the espresso machine, transformed into a pure beginner barista, Kang Go-bi. In particular, the phrase ‘a cup of coffee from the president changed my life’ stimulates curiosity about what caused Gobi Kang to change from an ordinary public servant to becoming a disciple of famous coffee master Park Seok.

Park Ho-San also looks like he is thinking good thoughts with his eyes closed. Although he looks blunt, the character of Park Seok, a coffee master who has a warm heart for coffee and people, and the president of ‘second coffee’ is revealed as it is. The phrase ‘the taste of coffee and the attitude towards people should be the same’ shows Park Seok’s respectful and serious attitude towards life in dealing with coffee and people.

It is an emotional human drama depicting. Previously, it was known that Ong Seong-wu would take on the role of ‘Kang Go-bi’, a barista with pure passion, and expectations were raised on who would take the role of ‘Park Seok’, who will work with Ong Seong-wu as a priest.

‘Park Seok’, played by Park Ho-San, is a barista master who runs ‘Second Coffee’, a cafe with only three tables, with one pride in coffee. A true teacher who recognizes Kang Gobi (played by Seongwu Ong)’s pure passion for coffee and accepts him as a disciple, leads Kang Gobi, who makes mistakes and makes mistakes, into the world of coffee, helping them learn and grow about coffee and people. Although he looks cold on the outside, he is a person with a warmth that understands and embraces people deep in his heart more than anyone else. Park Ho-San, who has captured the hearts of viewers through various works such as ‘Wise Prison Life’, ‘My Mister’, ‘Human Class’, and ‘Hush’, is different from the original by applying his own color to the character ‘Park Seok’. With charm and luxury acting, he will take center stage of the play and deliver calm emotion and healing to viewers.

Park Ho-san said, “I will try to draw a story that smells of people through the subject of coffee, which everyone likes,” and said, “I will learn coffee techniques and knowledge about coffee as much as it is based on the work of artist Heo Young-man, which was created through solid data research and historical research. I will do my best to transform into a true ‘coffee craftsman’ and provide a variety of attractions.”

‘Kim Joo-hee’, played by Seo Young-hee, is a music columnist who fills in the gaps of ‘Park Seok (Park Ho-san)’, a lover like a friend. Boasting an in-depth coffee knowledge comparable to that of the famous barista ‘Park Seok’, she plans to show off her unique charm as ‘Kim Joo-hee’, a regular customer of the ‘Second Coffee’ cafe and head of the house. Watching how the relationship between Joo-hee Kim and Seok Park, who supports each other without getting married in order not to be tied up with each other, and is a support for each other, is expected to be a major point of observation for “Would You Like a Cup of Coffee?” As Seo Young-hee has shown excellent acting in numerous works such as dramas, movies, and plays, as well as dramas, in this work, she is expected to capture the hearts of viewers with ‘Kim Joo-hee’, sometimes with a soft charisma and sometimes with an infinitely warm charm.

Seo Young-hee said, “Even I am looking forward to how the warm and lyrical emotions contained in coffee will be born into a video.” “I think that ‘Kim Joo-hee’ is a character who is strong and courageous on the outside, but has various depths of life. I will work hard in acting to convey the emotions that I can relate to that much.”

Kakao TV’s original ‘Shall we have a cup of coffee?’ is based on the original comic artist Heo Young-man of the same name drawn to commemorate the 40th anniversary of his debut. The warm healing emotions will be captured in the video.
