MY NAME IS KIM SAM SOON
The Main Story goes around with Kim Sam Soon.Her main passion and skills are in baking, as she does not have much of a social life, dreams of changing her name (Sam-Soon is considered a very old-fashioned and embarrassing name) and owning a shop of her own. After her breakup with her boyfriend, she managed to land herself in a big French restaurant working as a patiesseur for a rude and angsty 27-year-old man called Cyrus. Both were in bad terms ever since they set eyes on each other. But one day, Sam-Soon finds herself in need of 50 million won (Korean currency, approximately $50,000) to pay for her mother's house. She agrees to be Cyrus girlfriend for that amount. During their pretend dating they slowly become more affectionate with each other. When things seem to go accordingly, Cyrus' ex-girlfriend, Hannah Kim enters the scene and life for Sam-Soon starts getting much worse. Cyrus then realizes that he is happier with Sam-Soon and can't stop thinking about her. He confesses his love to her after she tells him that she hates people who don't confess their feelings towards the person they like. Hannah asks Cyrus to accompany her on her return to the United States. Sam-Soon allows him to go, and he does not return within the promised duration. He soon arrives, and they find out that he has been sending postcards to the wrong address. Sam-Soon and Cyrus attempt to get her pregnant, in order to convince Cyrus' mother into allowing their marriage. The plan fails, but they remain together. Near the very end of the series, Sam-Soon reads a poem from a poster on a bus stop: "Dance like no one's watching. Sing like no one's listening. Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've never been hurt before. Live like there's no tomorrow.
