[27 - 29 years old; Kim Rae Won] Descendant of “Dae Ryung Sook Soo” who was in the king's grace in the late Chosun period. However, at the time the “Dae Ryung Sook Soo” met an unjust death and as that truth became unrevealed, the upturned family continues its line in a mountainside living a normal and poor life. In the year when Sung Chan turns ten years old, Oh-Sook Soo comes to him, claiming that he is Sung Chan’s grandfather’s friend’s son and Sung Chan goes to Seoul to be raised together with Oh’s son, Bong Joo.


Jin Soo

[24 – 26 years old; Nam Sang Mi] She is outgoing, emotional, and a tomboy so she may seem annoying, but she also has a childlike and lovable nature. After she graduated from college in the country, she went to Seoul to take a qualifying exam to get into a Seoul newspaper agency. When she first arrived at the Seoul station, the first place she went to while dragging her large suitcase was “Un Ahm Jung (운암정)”. As a gourmand, she possesses an extraordinary interest and eye for food, and so her dream is to become a food columnist.


Bong Joo

[29 – 32 years old; Kwon Oh Joong] Mr. Oh’s son. As a child, he couldn’t understand why his father treated the mischievous Sung Chan with so much hospitality, but he acted the older brother part well. As Sung Chan turned to cooking and became more serious, his father’s worry lessened, but inversely, the Don Quixote of the kitchen Sung Chan became Bong Joo’s worry. As he watches Sung Chan who has zero level of skill or emotion to deserve to be “Dae Ryung Sook Soo” (royal chef) descendant, he starts to feel rivalry and jealousy.


Min Woo

[27 – 29 years old; Won Ki Joon] He is a top cook along with Sung Chan and Bong Joo in “Un Ahm Jung (운암정)”. He managed to go through that difficult and picky barrier into “Un Ahm Jung” (ah, I guess it’s the name of their restaurant place?) and as he heads for the best, he has become a sturdy pillar of support of Un Ahm Jung today. However he ends up meeting Sung Chan who he had problems with in high school at Un Ahm Jung and as he is forced to be in closer range with Sung Chan, he doesn’t know what to do.


Joo Hee

[28 – 30 years old; Kim So Yeon] Mr. Oh’s personal assistant. She is Mr. Oh’s right arm as he plays a central role in planning Un Ahm Jung’s future. She is a woman who understands and knows Mr. Oh’s intentions the best. She is the daughter of Mr. Oh’s friend who runs Un Ahm Jung’s branch in LA, and when Bong Joo was studying abroad in America, the two spent time like siblings. From a long time ago, Bong Joo liked Joo Hee but when he reveals that she is already in love with Sung Chan.


Mr. Oh

[Late 60s; Choi Bul Ahm] He is Bong Joo’s father and the current head of Un Ahm Jung. He is the only person who knows the buried secrets regarding Bong Joo and Sung Chan. In order to wash his past sins, he takes in Sung Chan and treats him better than his real son, but all Sung Chan gives him is one disappointment after another. However, when Sung Chan picks up cooking and shows skills, he reconfirms that in fact the blood of “Dae Ryung Sook Soo” runs in him.

The following is posted by a korean fan beam at fanmir, early June, 2007

(In the fan's own words, not my translation)

Where does 식객 ('Sik Gaek' / 'Gourmet') come from?

Hi, guys!

I think you are more and more curious about 식객 after seeing the trailer.

The TV show is based on a comic book series with the same title.

They have been created by Huh Young-Man who has been actively producing his works for over 30 years.

15 series of 식객, which of the first series came out first in 2002, have been published so far and still are being made.

식객 has achieved a position called to be the first epic cartoons of traditional Korean food.

Mr. Huh had thought about the ideas of 식객 for 4 years and he gathered data himself all over korea for over 2 years.

The collecting materials cost over 10 thousand of paper in size A4 and the pictures related to data fill 3 boxes in size about 50X30X20 (roughly ^^; ).

식객 made a new record of 30 thousand of visiters a day when it was on the internet.

Readers can not only get absorbed into interesting episodes but also appreciate vivid records and pictures of authentic traditional Korean food and even recipes of those Korean dishes. 'Sung-Chan', the main character is wandering around Korea to learn and revive authentic taste of Korean food.

The title comes from his adventures. 식 means food in Chinese character and 객 means here chivalrous man.

Sung-Chan goes through adventures, competitions, and of course hardships.

He has an arch rival and his destined love like other knights do~ ^^ Jin-Soo is a reporter of a newspaper, and she falls in love with him while she is meeting him for news articles.

Actually Jin-Soo-Sung- Chan has a double meaning. It means various kinds of delicious dishes full of the dining table.

This is what I gathered here and there over the internet. I wish I could explain more details.

I read 식객 with big interest a few years ago, but I hardly remember the story...^^;

Hope you guys will get official information soon. It would be my big pleasure if you get a glimpse of 식객 with my humble writing... ^^;

News of this drama appeared way back in January, 2006!!!

2006/1/13 Seoul Sports News

Kim Rae Won Transformed into a Gourmet

There’s report that Kim Rae Won will do the MBC mini series “Gourmet” to be aired in the second half of the year. According to a spokesperson of the production company JS Picture, KRW is the first choice actor to play the lead role “SengChong”. And Kim Rae Won knows that very well. The drama is preliminarily scheduled to be aired in the second half of the year. The comic book comic 'Gourmet' by Hur Young Man is a story focusing on the main character, SengChong, a gourmet. Therefore, a project plan with KRW as the lead role has started, but the whole staff has not been confirmed.

It’s well known that KRW is very good at cooking. He’s been cooking for himself for 14 years. He can make Korean, Chinese and Japanese food of high qualities. When he has no filming to do, he’ll go to the seafood market to choose seafood to cook for people near to him.

The role he’s going to play is also a young man who cooks for himself. He knows a lot about food and also likes to cook for people around him. The similarities between them makes one feel that SengChong is a role made up based on KRW.

And a person around KRW reveals, “KRW is doing serious preparation for the fact that he’s the first choice of the lead role of “Gourmet”. When the drama is aired, TV viewers will be able to see the cooking skills of KRW.”

Whether KRW’s “Gourmet” will create another trend of dramas related to food as Lee Young Ae’s “Dae Jang Keum” has drawn much attention.

NB I translated it long ago... will try to find out the original news link later.

제이에스픽처스, '식객' 등 드라마제작 [머니투데이 2006-03-24 14:14]

[머니투데이 원정호 기자]제이에스픽처스는 MBC 사전기획 미니시리즈 '식객'(가제)과 SBS '내겐 너무도 완벽한 그녀'(가제) 등 2편을 제작한다고 24일 공시했다. '식객'은 허영만 원작 김래원 주연의 사전제작HD드라마로 오는 11~12월 방영할 예정이다.



'식객 vs 대물' 인기만화 내년 초 드라마로 격돌

[스포츠월드 2006.04.25 22:40:23]


2007년 초 인기 만화를 원작으로 한 ‘식객’과 ‘대물’이 TV드라마로 격돌한다.

‘식객’은 이르면 내년 초, ‘대물’은 내년 3월쯤 전파를 탈 예정이고, 원작 만화가 신문 연재와 단행본 발매 등으로 인기를 얻은지라 두 작품에 대한 방송가의 관심도 비상하다.

우선 허영만 원작의 ‘식객’은 트럭에 야채와 건어물 등을 싣고 전국을 떠돌며 장사하는 성찬의 이야기를 그린 작품으로 우리 먹거리에 얽힌 다양한 드라마를 녹여낼 예정이다.

‘식객’의 외주제작사인 JS픽처스의 한 관계자는 25일 “현재 대본 작업 중인 ‘식객’은 올 하반기 촬영에 들어가 내년 초 방송될 예정이다”고 밝혔다. 남자 주인공으로는 김래원과 긍정적으로 얘기되고 있다.

‘대물’은 박인권 원작으로 제비 하류가 한국 최초의 여자 대통령을 꿈꾸는 서혜림을 만나면서 벌어지는 이야기를 그릴 드라마.

‘대물’의 외주제작사인 이김프로덕션측은 “2007년은 대선이 있는 해다. 여자 대통령을 만든다는 이야기는 시대적 상황과 맞물려 많은 공감을 얻을 걸로 예상된다”며 “현재 대본 작업이 진행 중이고, 주인공은 한류 스타로 기용할 생각이다”고 밝혔다.이길상 기자 juna@sportsworldi.com

김래원 VS 김강우 '식객' 맞대결


[English translation by CindyW88 of soompi]

Kim Rae Won and Kim Kang Woo are each selected to lead the drama and movie “Trencherman (식객)” respectively. Both drama and movie are adapted from a comic bearing the same title. It portrays that a wandering man discovers the place selling the best and precious traditional Korean cuisines. KRW and KKW play the role Sung Chan (성찬), a “sweet man”.

The drama is scheduled to be aired by MBC around February of 2007. The production companies “JS Pictures (JS픽처스)” and “Show East (쇼이스트)” have secured KRW to film the drama as soon as he finishes his new movie “Sunflower”. The filming of the movie led by KKW is scheduled to start in August, and the debut will be around early next year. It is planned to capture the beautiful autumn and winter scenery into both the drama and movie. Also, the process of searching for real taste resulting in joyfulness would be depicted in both projects.

This is not the first production making both drama and movie at the same time. There are movie and drama productions for “Hwang Jin Yi (황진이)” of which the movie is led by Song Hye Gyo while the drama is scheduled to be broadcasted by KBS2 around September. For the time being, Ha Ji Won is considered as the candidate to lead the drama “Hwang Jin Yi”.

[K-Film News & Box Office] June 19 (Posted In Asia Box Office Film News TV ) Heo Young-Man continues to be the favourite manhwa artist in Chungmuro, as after 다모 (Damo) and 형사 (Duelist), along with Choi Dong-Hoon's upcoming 타짜 (War of Flowers), two other projects have appeared on the radar. And, just like for the two Sageuk on TV and the big screen, we're getting two adaptations of the same source, one on TV, the other in theaters. I'm talking about Heo's popular 식객 (Freeloader), which will be produced by JS Pictures for a TV Drama starring Kim Rae-Won, and adapted for the big screen in a film starring 태풍태양 (The Aggressives)'s Kim Gang-Woo. The Drama will be the first to see the light of the day, for a February 2007 broadcast on MBC, but Show East's film version also plans to release in Early 2007, so we'll be dealing with the unique situation of a movie and TV Drama about the same thing competing against each other. The Drama will start shooting once Kim finishes the shoot of his upcoming film 해바라기 (Sunflower), while the film version will start shooting in August. A similar situation is happening with the film and TV versions of 황진이 (Hwang Jin-Yi), the former still looking for a leading lady after Ha Ji-Won seems to have turned down the role, the second about to start shooting with Song Hye-Gyo as Joseon's most famous concubine.

Well, even though Seo Ji Hye is cute, she needs improvement in her acting. She's a bit stiff, especially in kissing scenes :blush: (judging from Over the rainbow). I wonder if she can deal with KRW, one of the best kissers :lol:

It’s well known that KRW is very good at cooking. He’s been cooking for himself for 14 years. He can make Korean, Chinese and Japanese food of high qualities. When he has no filming to do, he’ll go to the seafood market to choose seafood to cook for people near to him.

Wah! I didn't know KRW is such a good cook! ^^

It'll be really nice to see him 'working' and acting, doing what he loves to do :)

Thanks for the great news, PChoi! and for making this thread too...

I've been waiting for this drama since I read the news months ago ^___^

This drama is definitely the get-go of 2007 for MBC. Can't hardly wait!

[Partly translated by PChoi]


Cho Seung Woo-Kim Rae Won-Kim Kang Woo, "Heo Young-Man's Guys"



Charismatic Cho Seung Woo, Kim Rae Won and Kim Kang Woo are highly acclaimed among the young actors. They will be in dramas and movies based on comic book stories by Heo Young-Man to show off their acting skills to viewers.




Kim Rae Won and Kim Kang Woo will be in the drama and movie versions of 'Gourmet'.

(PChoi: there's another English translation of the comic book title - 'Epicure')

包含許英滿畫家30年心血的'食客'一直都非常暢銷,現在將被同時改編為電影和電視劇,而演員金來沅和金康宇將分別出演電視版和電影版'食客'的男主角'成燦'.'成燦'是一個出廚藝高超的料理高手.兩位演員之間將會有一場不可部避免的演技 大對決.漫畫中的'成燦'有著圓嘟嘟的外貌,性格非常果斷,善良卻又大方過度.長相比較現代的兩位演員儘管飾演'成燦'一角但在外表上不會有太大改變.為了準確地刻畫出劇中人物,因此演員的個性和外貌都十分重要.就讓我們共同期待金來沅和金康宇的優異表現吧!

'Gourmet' contains the 30 years of experience and hardwork of the comic book writer Heo Young-Man and has always been very popular. Actors Kim Rae Won and Kim Kang Woo will play the lead 'Sung Chan' in the drama and movie versions respectively. Sung Chan is a cook with great skills and the two actors will have an unavoidable competition of their acting skills. Sung Chan in the comic book has a chubby appearance and a decisive character. He's a nice person but too kind most of the time. Both actors have modern looks and may not change their looks a lot in the works. But to accurately portray the role, actors' personality and appearance are both important. So let's look forward to their great performances!
