The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince in Hongdae
‘The 1st shop of coffee prince in Hongdae’ is the cafe which is broadcasted in the MBC drama ‘The 1st shop of coffee prince’ by Gong Yoo, Yoon Eun-hye in 2007.
Choi Han-gyeol (Gong Yoo) in this drama was such a charming actor and the acting skill of other casts was also really great. At that time, when the drama was being broadcasted, in front of the café, it was always crowded with people. I was a big fan of this drama either and have watched over three times.
In the plot, ‘The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince’ is being managed by Choi Han-gyeol (Gong Yoo). So, this café was the main shooting location that conflict and reconciliation and even love story are all contained between Choi Han-gyeol and Go Eun-chan. Also, pretty boy staffs, who are working for, gave more fun.
