August 5 is the airing date of the latest kdrama remake coming to lakornland, Chun Cheu Bussaba (2020) is a remake of the ‘My Lovely Sam Soon (2005)’. It stars Bee Namthip (Aruna 2019) and Film Thanapat (Mia 2018). This is a GMM One lakorn, so hopefully it should be English subbed.
Synopsis from original kdrama: Kim Sam Soon is a baker who has a talent in making pastries and cakes. On Christmas Eve, she caught her boyfriend, Min Hyun Woo, cheating on her and breaks up. On that same night, she accidentally went into the men’s restroom and met Hyun Jin Hun. By sheer coincidence, Jin Hun needs a baker for his restaurant Bon Appetit and Sam Soon is unemployed. Sam Soon is hired as the restaurant’s chief baker and the two fight like cat and dog.(Source: mydramalist.com)
This is an older woman, younger man theme that we’re seeing more and more of in lakornland. Bee Namthip and Film Thanapat were also both in Mia 2018 and Aruna 2019. I do like how Bee is styled, she looks quite natural except for that hair in some shots, but overall I think they did a good job of just making her look normal, not particularly dowdy.
