I love the dynamics that played between the main character. I love, love, love Lee Sun Gyun's portrayal of Chef Choi. The scenes with food preparation is also a visual feast. Watching the drama, I've actually learned a trick or two about cooking.
My only caveat about this particular DVD is that the subtitles were poorly edited by the time you get to the 15th episode. Also, there were occasional streaming of news alert or something on the bottom of the screen. I wish this DVD's subtitle was at par with Netflix or Crunchyroll. Having watched this drama before, I felt I was a little bit cheated of the translation.
I would highly recommend this Drama, but if you are thinking of buying a DVD I would suggest others to get a different version, one whose subtitles are gramatically correct and well-edited.
I'll just warn you about this DVD edition. This DVD is in 4:3 format, but the show was filmed for widescreen. Both sides of the image is chopped off and every shot looks too close up. It's horrible. How we could be still getting this old format in this day and age is beyond me. Not only that, but the picture quality is terrible. There are artifacts all over the place, making everything slightly blurry.
The only reason that I will keep this DVD set is in case the show ever gets taken off of Netflix and is becomes hard to find. It's for archive purposes only, or if you want a convenient way to show Pasta to a friend.
But other than that, versions on the internet are in the original wider screen and have higher image quality. This isn't the first time I've seen similar things with Korean shows on DVD. What's the deal Korea?
If you've watched any episodes before, you should know that the episodes are broken up differently on this DVD set. On Hulu the complete series spans 20 episodes; on the DVD, 30. Rather than end credits, the DVD set has a sort of slide show of moments throughout the entire series, so be aware that it includes major spoilers. It also omits the preview of the next episode. Occasionally the subtitles are a line early or late, having a response to a question with the question, for example, so it might not be immediately obvious who said what. Overall though, these things are minor and don't impact enjoyment of this series.
