She dreams of being a Paris-Blanc owner of absolute taste although she is working in a rural area bakery and has been baking since she was five. She used to think that Tak Goo as her rival at first, she falls in love with Tak Goo due to his nice personality.Being the complete opposite of Yu Kyung, Mi Sun values her friendship, love and family above anything else and is willing to sacrifice herself for the sake of others. Although her kind virtues eventually captured the heart of Kim Tak Goo, she is also subjected to the bullying of Shin Yu Kyung.


Shin Yu Kyung (Eugene)

She is the first love of Tak Goo who had suffered extreme poverty and violence during her childhood because of her alcoholic father. Yu Kyung who has always wanted a better life, choose to marry Tak Goo's half-brother "Ma Jun" and got trapped into a loveless marriage after she threw away love in place of getting power after Tak Goo's inheritance was taken away. She later became known as the both ruthless and elegant lady to everyone who crosses path with her.

The Koo family

Koo Il Jong (Jeon Gwang Ryul) : Gae Seong Enterprise's President

Believing that being diligent can overcome everything and get the best results if anyone is willing to work hard, Il Jong is both conservative and strict to everyone around him. A legend in the baking industries, he chooses his eldest son, Tak Goo as his successor despite the fact that he is his illegitimate son due to his inborn baking talents. However, his decision causes a rift and hatred between Tak Goo and his other three half-siblings as his wife plots to take back everything that was given to Tak Goo. He ended up losing everything he owns as well due to the ploting of Han Seung Jae who has been waiting for the chance to get back at him.

Seo In Sook : Koo Il Jong's wife (Jeon In Hwa)

When she got rid of Kim Mi Sun 12 years ago for giving to her husband's illegitimate son, she wasn't planning for the boy to return and announce that he is the son of Koo In Jong at his birthday party in front of everyone.

Despite looking elegant and sophisticated, In Sook is actually a sly scheming woman who becomes the driving force behind Ma Jun to push him to the top.

Han Seung Jae (Jung Sung Mo)

Although he is the right-hand man of Koo Il Jong and stayed in the same house with the Koo family, he was once the first love of Seo In Sook before she got married to Koo In Jong.

Koo Ja Kyung (Choi Ja Hye) : Koo Il Jong's eldest daughter

Diligent, responsible and strong, she is most similar to Koo In Jong's character among all his children.

Although he is known as the bread plant manager where Tak Goo works at, he is actually a master in old-fashioned cakes making as he is also a student of Master Pal Bong.

Park Shin Hye has been confirmed? i haven't seen any piece of news about it?

will she act as the female leading role who always attend to the protagonist,Kim Tak Goo?

i know there is anthor female role who is Kim Tak Goo's first love,but she will dump him when he is in the most difficult situation.maybe she is a negative character.

i think the second female role is more challenging and attractive.

whoa - i'm amazed that this drama really is happening! i hadn't heard it anywhere else!

i had the same question as red_pansy - i'm really hoping PSH plays the positive female lead rather than the one who betrayed him. it would be interesting to see her play against type, but she did that in goong s already - and i was under the impression that she didn't do it THAT well... then again, it could have just been the writing and drama overall...

Lee Young A makes her comeback to KBS after 2 years as the female lead of Baker King, Kim Tak Goo.

She will be playing the character "Yang Mi Seon" who has a love-line with Kim Tak Goo played by Yoon Si Yoon.

Park Shin Hye's name was mentioned as the other female lead in DC.

Is PSH still on the cast list? Does that mean she will play the "first love who will betray him for her own interest" ?

Wow.. a negative role ?

appreciate any news update on the casting ~ thanks

Guest red_pansy

LYA act as Kim Tae Goo's first love?

as far as i know,who will act as first love hasn't been confirmed,and fans on DC said LYA doesn't play the first leading female role.

that means the one who will betray KTG is the first leading female role.

I'm quite confused!

I heard that Eugene was rumored to be in this drama but the netizens don't know whether Eugene or Lee Young-ah is the main female lead...
