The plot involves Kumiko Yamaguchi, the granddaughter of a Yakuza boss. Her parents died when she was younger, and her grandfather has no other descendants, so Kumiko is next in line to head the family business with the title of Ojou. However, her lifelong dream has been to become a teacher. While her grandfather approves of her choice, others in the family want her to become the next boss, especially Tetsu, who is secretly in love with her.
Kumiko (known by her students as "Yankumi") becomes a teacher at an all-boys private high school. Her class is full of delinquents, but she tries her hardest to teach them not just about academics, but about lessons of life, much like any "dedicated teacher" story. Though she's forced to keep her family a secret from the public, her Yakuza upbringing gives her the strength and the experience to reach out to her students, while also providing comedic relief



Han Ki-joo (CARLO) is the President (and the son of the CEO) of GD Motors (which is based on the successful Korean motor company GM Daewoo). He has been living in Paris for two years after his failed marriage to Baek Seung-kyung. He is a charismatic and smart man who has been groomed all his life to take over the position of the Chairman of the company, the next commander of GD Motors.
Kang Tae-young (VIVIAN) is the beloved daughter of a film director. She is carrying on her father’s wish and is studying film in Paris. To make ends meet, she works as a housekeeper for Han Ki-joo. She is a simple yet spunky girl with an optimistic outlook on life, she may be goofy at times but her warm, spontaneous personality makes everyone gravitate towards her.
Yoon Soo-hyuk (MARTIN) is the free-spirited vagabond nephew of Han Ki-joo who dropped out of design school in the United States to live with him in Paris. He shares a close and intimate relationship with Han Ki-joo, although Han Ki-joo being the uncle is not much older than him. Han Ki-joo gives the freedom that he yearns for and supports him monetarily to pursue the kind of life he wishes.
Being a man with high standards, Kang Tae-young is quickly fired by Han Ki-joo as a housekeeper. However, when he realises that she is from the same hometown as the wife of a potential business partner, he is quick to capitalise on that and hires her to be his girlfriend to warm up to his business partner. She agrees in exchange for getting back her job as a housekeeper. During the two dates that he takes her out, she is smitten by the entire fairy tale of the event. In turn he finds himself unexpectedly captivated by the chatty, unpretentious girl.
However, the fake girlfriend plan backfires on him, and both part ways on bad terms in Paris.

Against the better judgment of all around them, Han Ki-joo and Kang Tae-young open their hearts to each other. But their union will not be smooth sailing with a scheming Moon Yoon Ah and an emotionally wounded Yoon Soo-hyuk plotting to split them up. Meanwhile, a Director at GD Motors tries to bring Ki-joo down and created a scheme with the designer for GD Motors, Yoon Soo-hyuk to spill the latest car design to the rival of GD Motors. The new car is announced and GD Motors is petrified by the fact that the latest and the best design was stolen. Later, Ki-joo figures out that his beloved nephew, Soo-hyuk did this, but forgives him. The fact that Ki-joo forgave him so easily and lovingly drives Soo-hyuk crazy. After getting into a car accident while blazing through the streets of Seoul to attempt to erase his guilt, he gets amnesia and loses his recent memories. (He only pretends he does not remember anything to let go of Tae-young so she can go after her true love, Ki-joo.) Moon Yoon Ah, after all those times, decides to let go of Ki-joo and throws her engagement ring into Han-River. With two "obstacles" out of the way, Ki-joo and Tae-young can finally get together. Unfortunately because of Ki-joo's families' dislike for Tae-kyung, the couple decides to be separated temporarily. Tae-young goes back to Paris and Ki-joo stays in Korea and overlook a new car development. After 2 years, the new car is announced and is a success. Ki-joo, immediately after the ceremony, catches a flight to Paris. For some time, they do not know where each other is and go on with their lives. Then one day, just as the series started, but this time instead of Tae-young, it's Ki-joo who throws a coin into a fountain and wishes to see Tae-young again. As he turns and put his leg around his bike, he sees Tae-young standing there. They both are stunned. The next scene shows the couple sitting by a river. Tae-young breaks the silence and asks, "If we had not met in Paris, do you think we still would have ended up together?" Ki-joo answers, "Most likely we would have." The scene suddenly switches to an outdoor coffee house and Tae-young with her old hair style is sitting on a chair sipping coffee. There are Ki-joo and probably a potential client in the back. Tae-young's voice over narrates a story. "Behind Tae-young sat the lover she always has dreamed of, but of course, she did not have the slightest idea." The next scene shows Tae-young in Korea, busily typing the same story on a computer. She looks at the clock and busily organize her stuff and leaves. (She is a housekeeper for an unknown person just like in Paris, but this time in Korea.) On her way out, she sees a newspaper with large headline that tells of a "cinderella" girl who got engaged to a rich guy (Picture of Tae-young and Ki-joo). She scoffs and says that that kind of romance never happens to a normal person. She leaves the house she keeps. As it turns out, the housekeeper Tae-young is selling stuffed dolls on a street of Seoul. When she leaves her cart unattended for some time, a lady (about 40-50) comes up to Tae-young's cart and sabotages it for being it her "spot." When Tae-young comes back, she is shocked to find her cart totally destroyed and automatically assumes that the car parked next to her cart is responsible. She kicks the car until the alarm goes off. Surprised Ki-joo comes up and asks her what she thinks she is doing. Tae-young asks for a compensation. When she asks for a sum beyond the reasonable amount, Ki-joo realizes that he had forgotten to bring his wallet says he will go to his house and bring back the money. Tae-young does not like the idea for he can just take off. So she snatches up Ki-joo's key and gets into the car. She and Ki-joo drives off and Tae-young asks if she can make a stop at an apartment. Ki-joo is surprised because the apartment she want to make a stop at is his. They both stare at each other and Tae-young asks if she had seen him somewhere. The series ends with the scene of the couple driving away from the camera above.



Choi Han Kyul, played by Gong Yoo (ARTHUR), is the cocky son of a rich family who runs a food corporation. He doesn't believe in love and certainly doesn't want to get married despite his family's requests. On the other hand, Go Eun Chan, played by Yoon Eun Hye(ANDIE), is a 24-year old tomboyish female who gets mistaken as a guy quite often. She takes up every job possible - waitress, food deliverer, etc - and has the responsibility of taking care of her mother and younger sister. Eun Chan accidentally meets Han Kyul twice, once on a delivery and once during a robbery. During the robbery, Eun Chan's delivery motorcycle ends up being damaged. Han Kyul, not knowing that Eun Chan is actually a girl, decides to hire Eun Chan as a false "lover" so that he can escape the blind dates arranged by his grandmother. Meanwhile, Han Kyul's cousin, Choi Han Seong, is an established music producer and his ex-girlfriend Han Yoo Joo, who Han Kyul secretly loved for nine years, is a famous artist who studied in New York.

After getting an ultimatum from his grandmother, Han Kyul takes over a run-down old coffee shop, later renamed Coffee Prince, to prove his ability, both to his grandmother and Yoo Joo. In order to attract female customers, he only hires good looking male employees. In a struggle with money, Eun Chan, whom Han Kyul has already mistaken as a boy, hides her gender identity to get a job at Coffee Prince. Soon feelings start to spark between Eun Chan and Han Kyul. Because he's unaware that Eun Chan is a girl, Han Kyul starts to question his sexuality.

The story revolves around a 29 to 30 year old girl called Kim Sam Soon, single and overweight, who is the third daughter of a rice mill owner. She doesn't have a college degree although she is a patissier with a Le Cordon Bleu certification.
Her main passion and skills are in baking, as she does not have much of a social life, dreams of changing her name (Sam Soon is considered a very old-fashioned and embarrassing name) and owning a shop of her own. After her breakup with her boyfriend, she managed to land herself in a big French restaurant working as a patiesseur for a rude and angsty 27-year-old man called Hyun Jin Heon. Both were in bad terms ever since they set eyes on each other. But one day, Sam Soon finds herself in need of 50 million won (Korean currency, approximately $50,000) to pay for her mother's house. She agrees to be Hyun Jin's girlfriend for that amount. During their pretend dating they slowly become more affectionate with each other. When things seem to go accordingly, Hyun Jin Heon's ex-girlfriend, Yoo Hee-Jin, enters the scene and life for Sam Soon starts getting much worse. Jin-heon then realizes that he is happier with Sam Soon and can't stop thinking about her. He confesses his love to her after she tells him that she hates people who don't confess their feelings towards the person they like. Hee Jin asks Jin Heon to accompany her on her return to the United States. Sam Soon allows him to go, and he does not return within the promised duration. He soon arrives, and they find out that he has been sending postcards to the wrong address. Sam Soon and Jin Heon attempt to get pregnant, in order to make Jin Heon's mother to allow their marriage. The plan fails, but they remain together.
Near the very end of the series, Sam Soon reads a poem from a poster on a bus stop: "Dance like no one's watching. Sing like no one's listening. Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've never been hurt before. Live like there's no tomorrow."
