‘How Are U Bread‘ is a South Korean-Chinese web drama released in 2020. It has a total of 5 episodes and the main genre of the drama is romance, fantasy, and food! The main cast includes EXO’s Suho (Kim Jun-myeon) as Han Do-woo and Lee Se-young as Noh Mi-rae.
Han Do-woo is a genius Patisserie in the world of Pastries. He is also the master-chef of his own bakery named ‘Aurora Bakery’. It’s said in the drama that if anyone is lucky enough to enjoy his mysterious and magical pastry, their wishes will come true for sure! So, as a result, within a small interval of time, Do-woo and his bakery becomes the talk of the town. No Mi-rae is a scriptwriter for a variety show, ‘Top 3 Bakery King’. It’s her first show as the main writer so she is very much determined to complete it successfully as a top-rated variety show, but it would only possible if she would be able to convince Han Do-woo to take part in this show which won’t be easy as Do-woo is a total introvert and doesn’t like attention. But Mi-rae’s tenacity doesn’t allow her to give up and continuously tries any and every method to get his consent. As time flies, her desperation and attempts towards Do-woo leads her heart to flutter for him. But they are not the destined couple per God’s choice so they have to be apart always. We can see this when Mi-rae loses her memories of the relationship between Do-woo and her, after the accident in France. Han Do-woo tries hard not to get close for Mi-rae’s sake. Through this variety show, she regains the memories of their past and for the second time, they fall in love with each other without God’s will. But they are apart again and reunited again and so on and so forth.
Why I liked this drama and why everyone should watch it?
Firstly, the two amazing soundtracks, ‘Sedansogu’ by Suho and ‘Loved’ by Elaine, are still lingering in my ear! Secondly, romance and fantasy in the drama have such a great balance and are fun to watch. K-drama lovers who are crazy about romantic and fantasy dramas, must watch this 5-episode series which narrates a beautiful story of love.
This short drama also tells us how important confidence is for everyone, whether it’s for loving someone or fulfilling our own dreams. If we have a strong determination in our hearts, we can even change God’s will!
