Kim Sam Soon LogoMy Name is Kim Sam Soon or My Lovely Sam Soon is a South Korean drama series and soon will a Pinoy version to be aired on GMA-7. Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez was chosen to play the lead role. The leading man is not yet decided.

The story of Kim Sam Soon 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-Heon'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 convince Jin-Heon's mother into allowing 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."
