Delicious Proposal was directed by Park Sung Soo of the masterpiece Ruler of Your Own World, and written by Kim In Young of The Secret Lovers.
Hyo Dong (Jung Joon, Strange Man, Strange Woman) treats his customers like kings and serves the best Chinese food in the area, but his restaurant has been struggling for some time. Built on dedication and decades of hard works by his father(veteran Park Geun Hyung), the restaurant has been declining due to the aggressive techniques of their rivals. In the midst of this competition, Hyo Dong gets to know Hee Ae (Son Ye Jin), a charming young girl who frequents the same cooking class. They also meet Shin Ae (So Yu Jin, Seoul 1945), a poor student with a big dream and lots of determination. Hyo Dong falls for Hee Ae, but when he finds out who her father is and how he's connected to his recent troubles, things start to get a little more complicated.
