Winner of the 2005 Baeksang Awards Grand Prize for TV Drama.
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 (a.k.a. My Name is Kim Sam Soon) has been billed as Korea's answer to Bridget Jones. Kim Sam Soon (Kim Sun 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.
When Sam-Soon loses her job on Christmas Eve, her problems are just beginning. She spots her boyfriend going into a hotel with another woman. At first she wants to charge right in there and confront him, but instead decides to wait for him to come out. She plans on dumping him in front of everybody, but when he finally does materialize, Sam-Soon breaks down and begs him not to leave her for the other woman.
Realizing she has made a fool of herself in public she runs to the bathroom, but accidentally goes into the men's room. Hyun Jin Hun (Hyun Bin), on a blind date he has no desire to go through with, walks in on Sam-Soon, embarrassing her even more! But Jin-Hun turns out to be Sam Soon's future employer - in more ways than one. 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!
