Nine years is a long time particularly in drama land when merely a few years can date a drama in both story content and visuals. With that said, newbies to K-dramas are still able to slurp up the 2007 now classic Coffee Prince, a huge hit when it aired and still the favorite of many drama fans the world over. It cemented Yoon Eun Hye‘s post Goong career as a top drama leading lady and launched Gong Yoo into Hallyu consciousness.
So it’s no surprise that in China’s rush to remake popular K-dramas Coffee Prince will be in the queue, and in this case filming has already started on Prince Coffee starring Yang Le and Xu Lu. The remake and cast are about as yawn inducing as it gets for me until news broke that Yoon Eun Hye flew to Beijing this week to film a barista cameo for the drama. First look above at her pulling coffee and darn it now I totally have to watch for her scene alone.
