Funny, romantic, and completely charming, MBC drama The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince features heartthrobs Gong Yoo (One Fine Day) and Lee Seon Gyun (The Great White Tower) and sassy starlet Yoon Eun Hye (Palace) at their best. Gong Yoo stars as Han Kyul, an aloof, hot-tempered young man who can't figure out what he wants to do in life, but he knows he's not interested in the family business or all these blind dates his grandmother keeps arranging. At his grandmother's prodding, he begins to run a coffee shop and, mistaking the boyish-looking Eun Chan (Yoon Eun Hye) for a guy, he hires her to work at the cafe…and pose as his boyfriend! It was just a ploy to scare off the blind dates, but the confused Han Kyul begins to fall for Eun Chan. Both a romantic comedy of errors and a sensitive urban drama about the dreams and confusions of modern young people, The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince has been a big audience hit in South Korea.
The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince OST is a delightful mix of sounds and sentiments, ranging from electronic to mainstream K-pop. Newcomer group The Melody leaves a deep impression with their two songs, "Lalala, It's Love!" (Track 1) and Polly (Track 10), while As One offer the romantic White Love Story (Track 2). For some electropop, there's Humming Urban Stereo's "How About a Cup of Coffee?" (Track 3) and Casker's Mocha and Double Shot (Track 13). Rounding out the selections is indie guitar pop act Tearliner with Go Go Chan!! (Track 4) and "Ocean Trip" (Track 12). "Ocean Trip" is Choi Han Sung's theme in the drama, and Lee Seon Gyun himself sings a softer, piano version (Track 15) of the song, also included in this soundtrack. – credits to YesAsia
