King of Baking, Kim Tak Goo

King of Baking, Kim Tak Goo/ 제빵왕 김탁구/ Jeppangwang Kim Tak Goo/ Bread, Love and Dreams *** (Korean)
30 episodes

Oh Jae Moo as Kim Tak Goo

Rather long romance series but the adventure and complication keeps rolling right along. Even the time transitions were smoothly felt, without having to put in the annoying '2 years later' message. I really enjoyed the involving and evolving storyline and the part each of the characters played in it. Fav character(s): Grandfather/Teacher and the Windmill tattoo guy. Fav scene(s): working together for the competition, and the ending happiness.

A well-to-do Baker looking for an heir, receives two sons, one from his wife, (with the baker's best friend) and one from a mistress. The wife becomes enraged and tries to do in the mistress and her child... which results in failure. 12 years later, the mistress gives her son into the keeping of the baker.. but the hateful jealousy of his family, gives the poor boy a lot of grief... and then there is the mysterious death of the grandmother.
After hearing of his mother's kidnapping, the boy runs off in search of her.
Years again pass and the boy, now grown, makes his way to a small bakery, where he has heard the man who kidnapped his mom, might be hiding out. After meeting the owner/master baker, he joins the bakery.. and is quickly issued a challenge to gain the title of approval from the master baker.
