Lee Jin Soo made it big after writing several thriller novels and establishing himself as a talented novelist. He works for Seo Eun Young, the owner of the biggest publishing company in Korea, and has a long-time friendship with her. Jin Soo has lots of fans, especially female ones, and he seems to be the perfect match for any woman... but what no one knows is that he is actually a bit weird and sarcastic, has lots of strange habits, and holds a dark secret. The one who has to cope with him and his habits is his secretary, Kang Seung Yeon, who begged him for this job to become a pro instead of the below-average girl that she really is. On top of that, there is also the return of Han Ji Won, Eun Young's ex-fiance, whom she despises. Ji Won tries to win Eun Young back, but she has her eyes set on Jin Soo.

My comment :
If you think this series will tell you about coffee and coffee making, you are wrong ...
So Eun Young, the publisher, does have a coffee house and library at the same place, since she has the idea that coffee and book is a perfect match.
This series is a comedy about Lee Jin Soo, a handsome, talented, but peculiar novel writer. It's about how he writes his psychological thriller novel, does his research, and his living habits. No romance no fun. What makes this series fun to watch are his love life and friendship, and his being a mentor to his secretary who aims to become a writer someday. What coffee has to do in this series? He drinks coffee while writing his novel, and he is a good barista, who knows how to make a delicious coffee in a special way.
If you feel like watching a light, hilarious, and entertaining series, I recommend you this series. Great casting, too. Kang Ji Hwan and Park Si Yeon is a perfect match ... just like book and coffee.
