genre: TV, Drama, Comedy

Introduction
Broadcast: May 31, 2005 ~ July 21, 2005
Total 16 episodes

She's 29 years old, single, and overweight. She doesn't have a college degree, a boyfriend, or a job. She's outspoken, obstinate, and fed up with society's expectations of her. Her name is Kim Sam-Soon, and she's Korea's unlikely sweetheart!

Thanks to its everywoman protagonist, My Lovely Sam-Soon has been billed as Korea's answer to Bridget Jones. Kim Sam-Soon (Kim Seon-Ah, who gained 15 pounds for the role) is a Cordon Bleu-trained pastry chef who doesn't conform to the stereotype of the typical K-Drama Cinderella. Sam-Soon won't let men push her around, will eat and sleep her way out of a depression, and could care less how other people see her. But the unthinkable occurs: Kim Sam-Soon meets a Prince Charming named Hyeon Jin-Heon (Hyeon Bin). He's a rich restaurant owner who hires Sam-Soon, not only to be a chef, but also to be his pretend girlfriend! So begins a series of surprising and touching events that would try the emotions of any normal woman. But this is no normal woman - this is Kim Sam-Soon!

When My Lovely Sam-Soon first aired, audiences immediately identified with Kim Sam-Soon's stereotype-breaking character. With her "unladylike" behavior, Sam-Soon challenges traditional ideas of what Korean women are like by providing a glimpse of what a Korean woman is really like! Audiences responded by making My Lovely Sam-Soon the most watched K-Drama of the year, with a viewership rate of over 40 percent. Alternately hilarious, heartwarming, and heartbreaking, My Lovely Sam-Soon - and Kim Sam-Soon herself - will win you over!
Storyline
This is a refreshing romance comedy about Kim Sam-soon (Kim Sun-ah), who is a plain and chubby girl with a tendency to eat food when she becomes stressed. After getting dumped by her boyfriend, she meets Hyun Jin-heon (Hyun Bin) who owns a restaurant. He has a crippled leg due to a car accident three years ago. Not only did the accident leave him crippled, but he also lost his wife and older brother.

Despite the fact he has a "girl" friend, Yoo Hee-jin (Jung Ryu-won), he asks Sam-soon to be his girlfriend instead. When Hee-jin finds out that Jin-heon has fallen for chubby Kim Sam-soon, she is appalled. Hee-jin soon becomes Sam-soon's rival for Jin-heon's heart....
