Mentioned this a few months back and now production will be in full gear as the whole cast has been assembled and introduced during the press conference yesterday. I wonder who gave the Chinese remake its English name because if you can’t make it better, keep it simple! Coffee Prince Lab (王子咖啡店)? WHAT? Anyway, I’m both excited and worried for them because Yoon Eun Hye and Gong Yoo set the bar…somewhere…outside the roof in terms of chemistry and Eun Hye nailed her role adorkably.
Press Conference 4/12/16: The Cast
Our lead couple – Xu Lu and Yang Le. Don’t worry, Xu Lu will cut her hair short because after contemplating and reading fan responses, it is worth it. Girl, if you don’t, they will go after you. Lol.
Xu Lu wall-smacking Yang Le. 😛 Honestly, I don’t know why this … is a trend even. Who likes to be cornered to a wall?
You like? XD
This cute girl below is Malaysian singer, Joyce Chu. She plays the hero’s first love. Such an adorable aura around her. Man, I can’t keep track of all the female crushes I have!

Guy to the far left is Lin Cheng Jun.
Posters and Scenes from the original 1st Shop of A Coffee Prince. Story of the original; a cool rich guy who doesn’t care much for responsibilities and lives life freely, until his grandmother gives him an ultimatum by forcing him to take over a small run-down coffee shop to show her that he’s an adult. He does and hires good-looking young men to charge the place and lure in customers. Our female lead, a tomboy and the sole breadwinner of her family, accepts the job offer and keeps her gender a secret. Thinking that she’s really a male, our hero hires her to play his gay lover to ward off the numerous blind dates his grandma sets him up with. Bickering soon develops into something more and our hero begins to question his sexuality.
Co-directed by Korean PD Kang Shin Hyo (The Heirs, Midas) and Kim Hyeong Sik (Second Time Twenty Years Old), Coffee Prince Lab hopes to bring new ideas to the story and plans to have 30 episodes.
