Pasta is a South Korean romantic comedy television series that aired in 2010 on MBC America. The show revolves around Seo Yoo-kyung (played by Kong Hjodzsin), a young woman who dreams of becoming a chef. Despite having no formal culinary education, she lands a job at La Sfera, a high-end Italian restaurant in Seoul.

At La Sfera, Yoo-kyung meets Chef Choi Hyun-wook (played by Lee Sun-gyun), who is both talented and temperamental. Hyun-wook is initially resistant to having Yoo-kyung on his team, but as he sees her passion and determination, he starts to warm up to her. Meanwhile, La Sfera's general manager, Kim San (played by Byun Jung Soo), has her sights set on Hyun-wook, creating a love triangle that drives the plot of the show.

As Yoo-kyung navigates the competitive and cutthroat world of professional cooking, she also grapples with romantic feelings for both Hyun-wook and a rookie chef named Kim San (played by Choi Min). Along the way, she learns valuable lessons about perseverance, teamwork, and the importance of staying true to oneself.

One of the unique aspects of Pasta is its focus on Italian cuisine. Throughout the show, viewers are treated to mouthwatering shots of pasta dishes, pizzas, and other Italian specialties. The show even employs a local Italian consultant to ensure authenticity in its culinary scenes.

The characters in Pasta are well-drawn and engaging, each with their own distinct strengths and weaknesses. Hyun-wook, for example, is a brilliant chef but struggles with interpersonal relationships. Kim San, on the other hand, is a bit of a clueless goofball but has a natural talent for cooking. Yoo-kyung is the heart of the show, a warm and determined young woman who brings out the best in those around her.

The acting in Pasta is top-notch, with standout performances from Kong Hjodzsin, Lee Sun-gyun, and Byun Jung Soo. The chemistry between the actors is palpable, particularly in the scenes where Yoo-kyung and Hyun-wook share quiet moments in the restaurant's kitchen.

The show's production values are also excellent. The cinematography is slick and polished, with an emphasis on bright colors and mouthwatering food shots. The editing is sharp and energetic, keeping the pacing brisk and engaging.

Overall, Pasta is an enjoyable and heartwarming show that will leave audiences hungry for more. Whether you're a fan of romantic comedies or Italian cuisine (or both!), this show is sure to delight. With its charming characters, snappy dialogue, and delicious food porn, it's the perfect comfort watch for a rainy weekend.

Pasta is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (20 episodes). The series first aired on January 4, 2010.
