Pasta is a Korean television series that follows the experiences, obstacles and successes of Seo Yoo-kyung, a young woman achieving her dream of being a top chef at La Sfera. In the opening scenes of the show, Yoo-kyung, played by Gong Hyo-jin, is portrayed as the "youngest one," a lowly kitchen assistant who must work quickly and diligently to accommodate all the different demands of the chefs employed at the upscale urban restaurant. On the very same day she is finally given chef duties, the executive chef is fired and Chef Choi Hyun Wook, who gained his culinary experience in Italy as a chef's assistant and later became a nationally renowned chef in Korea, replaces him. Under Hyun Wook's management, all the female chefs are fired, with Yoo-kyung as the exception. Although she is fired several times thereafter, she continually invents reasons to be rehired by Hyun Wook. After she takes a blind taste test, the judges are so impressed with her results that they decide to rehire her permanently. Restaurant president Kim San hires on celebrity chef Sae-young as co-chef to Hyun Wook, but it is soon after revealed that the two dated before while attending culinary school, and broke up because of the sabotage Sae-young wreaked on one of his recipes in order to win a grand prix cooking contest. Yoo-kyung eventually realizes she has feelings for Hyun Wook, but Kim San's feelings for her create a love triangle. Pasta was broadcast on MBC with 20 episodes in 2010 and won in two categories at the 2010 MBC Drama Awards, with the Top Excellence Award for actress Gong Hyo Jin's portrayal and the Best Couple Award for Lee Sun Gyun and Gong Hyo Jin's believable onscreen chemistry.
