His name is Park Jae Hwan. He is sous chef on some high class restaurant. He said he only graduated from high school, maybe then he taking cooking class. He was approach Yoon Jin Myung first. I don’t know maybe he see Jin Myung when she taking order from kitchen. He know when Jin Myung feel tired, he give her a glass cold water when Jin Myung almost late to go to her part time job on the restaurant. He make some egg tart for the tired-little stress Jin Myung. He share umbrella with Jin Myung one day when rainy, and take Jin Myung to bus stop. But, Jin Myung said, “Please don’t be nice to me. If you be nice to me and then stop being nice to me, It will be even harder to me”.
Chef Jae Hwan go after her to take a bus and sit beside her and said, “Wouldn’t it be okay if i just continued being nice to you, then?. I can be nice to you, right?”. Then he take Jin Myung to her house still with his umbrella. Instead of say thanks, Jin Myung says you’re fool because the last bus already left. Jae Hwan said, “just go inside”.
Jin Myung hurry up take off her shoes to see Jae Hwan from the window,. Jae Hawn was there looking up to the window smiling to Jin Myung, still with his umbrella. So lovelyyyyy!!.
On the night when the staff celebrate Chef Jae Hwan who get an award, Jin Myung already left because she should do another part time job on convenient store. After the party, Jae Hwan go from one convenient store to another convenient store finding Jin Myung. Jin Myung little bit suprised but then they have a nice chit chat outside store.
The day after, Jin Myung give her congratulatory gift knife-sharpen, he so happy, smiling from ear to ear and his eyes are gone became a line 😀 *his smiling just like Jung Ji Woon 2 AM or DK Seventeen. He use that knife-sharpen to all day long even his boss scould him, he keep smiling.
One day when he waiting Jin Myung from the restaurant’s back door, Jin Myung not showing. Then he waiting in front of Jin Myung house, he saw Jin Myung go ut from Manager’s car. Rumors are spreading, Jin Myung moving to chashier spot. He asked Jin Myung about that rumors but she don him anything. In the day after Jae Hwan meet Jin Myung on the restaurant’s back door, Jin Myung suddenly leaning her head to his chest, but when Jae Hwan want to hold her, she back up and said, “Do you like me? Do you still like me? Dont like me!. When i think that someone may like me, i become weak. And if i become weak right know, it’ll really be the end for me”. Then Jin Myung just go.
Jae Hwan still waiting Jin Myung on the back door, but Jin Myung refuse to take to home with Ja Hwan. She said, “i said, don’t be nice to me”.
But, Jae Hwan can take it any longer he mad, “Do you think i’m totally fine being rejected?. Everytime you push me away like this, i hate it and feel humiliated!”
But Jin Myung said, “So..you shouldn’t”

I’m falling in love with Chef Park Jae Hwan character, he just humble person. He always respect her choices, even he not agree. He love Jin Myung as her self. He love Jin Myung even he know, she has a lot of problem family life. He wants involved in her problem. He know when Jin Myung not really well, what she feel, he is trying to approach her, he doing some effort to approach Jin Myung. His heart is manly but in the same time he is fragile, he broken heart when saw Jin Myung with another man. I wanna hug him, so tight!!.
I’m falling with his physic, tall, proporsional, actually not too handsome, his eyes are gone when he smilling, and wrinkle at corner in the eyes, smilling from ear to ear and nice tooth. I thougt i’m falling in love with Yoon Park the but no! I don’t like him at another drama, yes i fall only to this character.
