The “Coffee Prince” cast is returning to the scene of their famous drama in a new documentary!

Last month, MBC confirmed that they were preparing for a documentary about “Coffee Prince.” The hit drama, which starred Gong Yoo, Yoon Eun Hye, Lee Sun Gyun, and more, aired in 2007 and became a phenomenon in South Korea, other parts of Asia, and beyond.

In the new teaser for the documentary, Gong Yoo, Yoon Eun Hye, Lee Sun Gyun, Kim Jae Wook, Kim Dong Wook, and Chae Jung An revisit the café from their drama and share their surprise at what they find inside. The caption for the teaser also reveals that the documentary will show the cast members reflecting on their 2007 drama from their new perspectives in 2020.

Airing dates of ‘Coffee Prince’ documentary revealed

Published September 18, 2020, 11:49 AM

by Jonathan Hicap 


The hit 2007 Korean drama “Coffee Prince” is getting some sort of a reboot through a documentary that will see the cast reunite after 13 years.

Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun-hye will join co-stars Kim Dong-wook, Lee Sun-gyun, Kim Jae-wook and Chae Jung-an for the TV documentary.

According to MBC, the documentary was filmed in the drama’s two iconic Seoul locations: a coffee shop in the Hongdae area, which was used as the coffee shop in the drama, and the Sanmotoonge Cafe in Jongno, which served as Lee Sun-gyun’s house.


“Coffee Prince” is a 17-episode drama that aired in South Korea from July to August 2007. It became popular and drew its highest nationwide Nielsen Korea rating of 27.8 percent for its last episode. The drama also became popular in Asia including the Philippines where the original was aired in 2008 and a remake was released in 2012.


The “Coffee Prince” special will air on MBC’s “Youth Documentary 20, Again” in two parts: Sept. 24 and Oct. 1 at 10:40 p.m. Korea time.
“In fact, although they are stars who are rarely seen other than in dramas and movies, they are all willing to join and share that getting together with the cast of ‘Coffee Prince’ is an exception,” said MBC, according to MyDaily.


MBC added, “Initially, after conducting personal interviews, the cast members watched each other’s recording in the ‘untact’ form and expressed support as well as empathy for this. In fact, the shooting period overlapped social distancing practice due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so we weren’t sure whether the meeting would be made possible or not. However, thanks to the support of two coffee shops located in Seogyo Ward and Buam Ward, which were once the filming locations of ‘Coffee Prince,’ a surprise and thrilling encounter happened,” the Korean TV station said.

The six stars revealed stories about their youth, watched scenes of “Coffee Prince” together and shared their behind-the-scenes stories.


“Coffee Prince” brought fame and awards to the cast. At the 2007 MBC Drama Awards, Yoon Eunh-hye and Gong Yoo took home acting awards. Yoon Eunh-hye also won best actress for TV at the 44th Baeksang Arts Awards and “Coffee Prince” won best drama at the 20th Korea PD Awards.

'Coffee Prince' stars reunite in old set for documentary

Published September 16, 2020 9:52am

That's because it's the exact same set from the classic K-drama "Coffee Prince." Even better: those are the exact same actors that won our hearts all the way back in 2007.



After 13 years, the beloved cast of "Coffee Prince" are reuniting for a documentary to talk about what it was like to work on the show all those years ago.


MBCLife released the teaser of the upcoming project, and it featured Gong Yoo, Yoon Eun-hye, Lee Sun-gyun, Lee Jae-wook, Kim Dong-wook, and Chae Jung-an returning to the two iconic coffee shops from the drama series.

Last month, Soompi reported that MBC confirmed that the documentary project was in the works.

"Coffee Prince" is about coffee shop owner Choi Han-kyul (Gong Yoo) who hires a hardworking young woman named Go Eun-Chan (Yoon Eun-hye), thinking that she's a guy. Han-kyul ends up having an emotional crisis as he develops feelings for his employee, all the while trying to prove he can take over his family's coffee business.

"Coffee Prince" is currently streaming on Netflix. —JCB, GMA News

Yoon Eun Hye’s Vlog Reveals Set Of “Coffee Prince” 13 Year Reunion Documentary

Check out Yoon Eun Hye’s vlog for a sneak peek of the Coffee Prince documentary.

15 hours ago

Actress Yoon Eun Hye shared a vlog on her YouTube channel yesterday titled, “Coffee Prince 13 Year Reunion?! Rainy Day Vlog”.

In her vlog, Yoon Eun Hye visits the cafe where Coffee Prince was filmed and says, “I’m going to see Gong Yoo ‘oppa’ today too, but he doesn’t know about it. They told me it’s a secret. I’m excited to see him. I’m actually really excited about seeing Choi Han Gyul again”. She clearly misses Coffee Prince just as much as we do.


Yoon Eun Hye walks around the cafe to look at the places where she filmed the kiss scene and the painting scene. The areas shown in her vlog bring back memories of Coffee Prince and the memories from the year it aired. It’s surprising to think it’s been 13 years already because Yoon Eun Hye looks exactly the same, sweet and beautiful.



It was apparent that fans had been waiting for an update like this from the comments explaining they watched Coffee Prince every summer and thanking Yoon Eun Hye for the good memories.

Hello, everyone!


I've been hype about the Coffee Prince Reunion and see that many others are too.  I'm happy to see how excited she is with the reunion.  She used to seem a bit regretful before for starring in such a great show but now, she seems really happy.  I hope that reminiscing will help her become happier and love acting again.  :hooray2:


I also think that opening up a youtube channel was good for her.  She seems happier and more confident.  Hopefully it'll help her see that she still has many fans who are waiting for her.  Maybe it'll help her choose a project soon...

Hard to say. She was in a movie/ and a few sitcoms back when she was part of Baby VOX. As an actress actress then it’s probably during Goong in year 2006.

Watch: “Coffee Prince” Cast Reminisces About The Joy They Felt On Set + Gong Yoo And Yoon Eun Hye Reunite

The stars of “Coffee Prince” shared their love for the show as fans eagerly await their upcoming documentary!

The cast returns to the café of their hit drama in MBC’s documentary “My Dear Youth – Coffee Prince.” Ahead of its broadcast, some photos and quotes from the cast were shared!

It’s said that while fans around the world are passionate about the drama, the cast loves the show more than anyone. Gong Yoo, who played Choi Han Gyul in “Coffee Prince,” showed how much he loves the show while they were filming the documentary.

When asked why he briefly hesitated when he was contacted by the crew at first, Gong Yoo explained, “I wanted to continue to treasure ‘Coffee Prince’ with the same feelings I had back then. I have such great memories of ‘Coffee Prince,’ and I was worried that something might change or become distorted…”

He likened his feelings about “Coffee Prince” to a “first love” and said, “I usually can’t stand watching myself acting in my old projects, but Choi Han Gyul is a character that doesn’t make me feel very embarrassed. I’m not sure why that is.” He joked with a big smile, “Maybe my acting was really good?”



Lee Sun Gyun reminisced as he said he thinks the “Coffee Prince” team was one-of-a-kind. He shared, “I always wanted to get to the ‘Coffee Prince’ set early and leave late too. I’d go watch the filming even when I wasn’t in the scene.” He said that despite their tiring schedule, they’d go out after work for drinks, spending the night laughing and chatting together.



Yoon Eun Hye said, “I still miss the sound of the director’s laugh. The ‘Coffee Prince’ set was a really exciting playground to me.” Chae Jung An shared, “Everyone coming together and working hard was the reason ‘Coffee Prince’ was a success.”





Kim Dong Wook commented, “It was a time when I did it because it was so enjoyable to do it. I was passionate and ambitious.” Kim Jae Wook said, “The ‘Coffee Prince’ members are a family to me, and I smile whenever I think of them.”





It’s said that the six cast members had so many memories to share that they couldn’t even all be fit in the documentary’s two parts.

A pre-release clip has also been shared from the first episode! It includes Gong Yoo at the café as he’s interviewed and he shares some of the comments above. While he’s sitting at the counter, Yoon Eun Hye arrives and surprises him. He says, “But I heard you’d already finished filming and left!” He asks if this is a surprise for him, and she replies, “Yes, they said they’re surprising you.”

“It’s been so long!” he says to her. “How long has it been? What a surprise!” She replies, “You’re exactly the same” and he tells her the same.


Watch the clip below!



“My Dear Youth – Coffee Prince” airs at 10:40 p.m. KST on September 24 and October 1, and it will be available on Viki.

“Coffee Prince” Cast Take A Trip Down Memory Lane As They Share Untold Stories In Documentary

Sep 24, 2020

On September 24, MBC aired its highly anticipated “Coffee Prince” documentary!

13 years after the drama originally aired, the main cast of Gong Yoo, Yoon Eun Hye, Lee Sun Gyun, Chae Jung An, Kim Dong Wook, and Kim Jae Wook met up in pairs to discuss their memories from set for the documentary “My Dear Youth – Coffee Prince.”

“Coffee Prince” tells a love story between cafe manager Choi Han Gyul (played by Gong Yoo) and his employee Go Eun Chan (played by Yoon Eun Hye), who pretends to be a man in order to work at the coffee shop. During its run, “Coffee Prince” was an incredible hit, reaching viewership ratings of 27.8 percent nationwide.

In the documentary, Gong Yoo revisited the cafe where they filmed and sat down for an interview. Regarding the drama, he shared, “It feels like my first love. It feels like I’m confronting something that I planned to just leave as a memory.” He went on to explain that he’d hesitated at first over joining the documentary because he wanted to cherish his great memories as they were, fearing they might change.

Gong Yoo reunited with Yoon Eun Hye, who surprised him at the cafe. The two immediately told one another, “You look exactly the same” and they got their coffee made by someone who had become a barista after watching “Coffee Prince.”

Yoon Eun Hye abruptly asked Gong Yoo, “Do you have any plans to get married?” Gong Yoo replied, “It’s not that I don’t want to but I’ve kind of missed that period.” When asked the same question, Yoon Eun Hye answered, “I think that I want to focus on my work a little more and then do that.”




The two carefully explored their past set as Gong Yoo commented, “I remember everything we did. We kissed a lot. Since I’ve aged, I can talk about it without feeling shy.” Yoon Eun Hye adorably added, “I’m shy.”

At a different location, Chae Jung An and Lee Sun Gyun excitedly greeted each other with a big hug. The last pair was Kim Dong Wook and Kim Jae Wook, who immediately looked very comfortable with one another.






The three pairs then began watching clips from “Coffee Prince.” Yoon Eun Hye revealed, “After I cut my hair, I didn’t even put on makeup and just applied sunscreen.” Regarding his character, Gong Yoo shared, “He looked like he had no manners but he was different from other chaebols.

While discussing what Gong Yoo was like on set, Chae Jung An commented, “He was more serious than I thought and took care of himself well. He showed so much ambition that it made me think that he was someone who had prepared for a long time.”

Kim Dong Wook seemed confused that only Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun Hye were appearing in the clips and Kim Jae Wook jokingly commented, “He’s only interested when he’s on screen.”

Chae Jung An shared, “Han Gyul looks like such a baby. Gong Yoo has become so much cooler. He must take care of himself really well.” She made everyone crack up by adding, “He looks luxurious now.”

When Kim Dong Wook finally appeared, Kim Jae Wook commented, “Back then, your eyes were so innocent.” Kim Dong Wook replied, “Now they’re sexy.”

After watching the scene where they all fall into the fountain, Gong Yoo confessed, “I tried using tricks so I wouldn’t have to go into the water but I went because you guys pulled me in.”




While watching a kiss scene between Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun Hye, Lee Sun Gyun let out a high-pitched squeal, making Chae Jung An remark, “You just sounded a bit like a little girl.” He replied, “I guess I’m old.”




Chae Jung An also asked Lee Sun Gyun, “When’s the last time you kissed like that?” Lee Sun Gyun jokingly responded, “‘Coffee Prince.'” Chae Jung An played along, replying, “Well, I guess because there is social distancing.”




While watching her own kiss scene, Yoon Eun Hye averted her eyes and commented, “It’s hot in here.” Gong Yoo embarrassed her even more by adding, “Eun Chan was a very motivated girl. She was not passive. I didn’t know what Eun Hye’s hands were doing but after watching the broadcast, her hands were pulling up my T-shirt.”




They wrapped up their viewing session as Kim Dong Wook and Kim Jae Wook remarked, “The memories are all coming back. They’re more vivid than what we had initially thought of.” Chae Jung An shared, “There’s a prettiness that makes my heart flutter. The fact that I didn’t know that then is also part of being young.”

Gong Yoo commented, “It feels like Choi Han Gyul and Eun Chan got married and are looking back on their past together. It’s like our kids are playing over there. I think people imagine that a lot. Thinking, ‘They’re probably living well somewhere, right?'”

Lee Sun Gyun shared, “Choi Han Gyul is Gong Yoo. Didn’t it suit him better than any other role?” However, Gong Yoo revealed that he hesitated to join the production, explaining, “It was a time when I had a bit of opposition against romantic comedies. After becoming an actor, it was the first time I had experienced that ‘puberty.’ I wanted to grow while fulfilling my sense of achievement but the vibe around me was, ‘You have to do this. That’s how you’ll become a star, get advertisements, and get main roles.'”

Regarding this situation, producing director (PD) Lee Yoon Jung explained, “Some actors may feel apprehensive about idol-turned-actors. However, Gong Yoo said, ‘I am the problem for myself.’ He said he wasn’t in the position to discuss his co-stars’ acting and that made me think, ‘This person is cool.'”




For Yoon Eun Hye, transitioning from an idol to an actress gave rise to many concerns. She shared, “I had just started to slowly take my first few steps but then I found myself in a situation where I had to run. If I didn’t do this, I felt like I wouldn’t become an actress and the public wouldn’t wait for me. While filming ‘Princess Hours,’ I felt so frustrated. I needed change.”

Chae Jung An, who also promoted as a singer, commented, “I know being in a girl group isn’t easy, and she was even the youngest. I thought she’d experience some difficulties. The adults she worked with likely gave her work without any explanations and she probably tried her best. Then she got to work on a drama. I think the environment that allowed her to live as Eun Chan must have been so freeing.” Hearing this, Yoon Eun Hye began to shed tears.






Chae Jung An touched on her own concerns at the time, revealing, “Back then, I didn’t want to do the project, or anything at all. I was having a hard time because of my personal issues, so I didn’t want to do work. They brought me the synopsis but I didn’t even want to see it so I pushed it aside.”

When asked why she chose to cast Chae Jung An, PD Lee Yoon Jung explained, “There are so many pretty female actresses. I received a recommendation and met up with Chae Jung An but she was such a tomboy. She looked like a girl whom other girls would like. She said that because she’s lazy, she wears the same clothes for a week.” After learning this, Chae Jung An expressed her surprise as she commented, “Really? I thought I was picked because I was feminine.”




When he was cast, Lee Sun Gyun was already well-known to the public due to the success of his other dramas. The PD explained, “I saw his brief appearance on KBS’s ‘Drama City’ and thought he was good at acting, so I looked him up, contacted him, and cast him for a different project. Since I had already experienced his acting and personality once, I thought he would fit well with the role.”

PD Lee Yoon Jung also mentioned the risk she took with this drama, sharing, “There was some apprehension.” Gong Yoo admitted that he also thought “Coffee Prince” was a bit silly, explaining, “I thought, ‘What is this?’ Reading the script was like reading fiction on the internet. It was like a cartoon. But she made that feel electric.”

The PD also shared a time when Gong Yoo had made her tilt her head in confusion. Lee Yoon Jung shared, “I took Gong Yoo to the studio and showed him his outtakes. But within seconds, he said, ‘I understand. Can I go now?’ It was like he figured it out himself.”

Gong Yoo praised his co-star, sharing, “The reason I was able to become Choi Han Gyul was Go Eun Chan and Yoon Eun Hye. Yoon Eun Hye’s passion made me feel embarrassed and helped me grow. It made me wake up.”






Yoon Eun Hye expressed her admiration for the drama, saying, “After appearing on ‘Coffee Prince,’ I no longer heard the term ‘idol-turned-actress.’ It’s the project that made me into an actress.”

Kim Jae Wook commented, “This was a time where I could really positively express my individuality.” Kim Dong Wook added, “During this time, my passion and ambition were overflowing. Acting was just fun then.”




Regarding the popularity of “Coffee Prince,” Gong Yoo shared, “Every day was crazy. People around me would ask what was going to happen next and say it was so hard to wait.” Chae Jung An added, “Back then, our chemistry was very good. I think the energy of everyone and the universe was all brought together.”




Gong Yoo, who won an acting award for his performance in “Coffee Prince,” touched on the meaning of this drama to him, sharing, “‘Coffee Prince’ is the project that revived my dying passion. I think I was healed through the drama. We became brighter and hotter together. That’s why I think it’s that much harder to forget everyone, and that’s what makes this project that much more meaningful.”


The full documentary will be available on Viki soon. In the meantime, watch “Coffee Prince” below!

just watched the Eng Sub on Viu. 

What to do the more I see YEH the more I miss her. But it's refreshing to watch her again on screen looking relaxed and a bit happier. I feel as if the last few years must have been hard on her. I pray that 2020 will be her jump point to 2021 when she can run again and achieve her goals and dreams as an actor. Fighting!
