Based on a novel of the same name, ''The First Shop of Coffee Prince'' is a Korean drama that aired in 2007. Go Eun Chan is a tomboyish girl working multiple jobs to support her mother and sister. Choi Han Kyul is the charming son of a wealthy family, and has never held a job in his life. The two meet by chance and Han Kyul assumes Eun Chan is a boy (and a thief). He ends up hiring her to pose as his "gay lover" when he goes on blind dates set up by his mother and grandmother. His grandmother decides to take a different approach - he has to take over management of a failing coffee house the family owns. If he can triple her investment in three months, she will leave him alone to live his life as he chooses. Otherwise, he will have to submit to the blind dates and eventually settle down.
