Sweet Buns (Hangul단팥빵; RRDan-pat-ppang) is a South Korean television series starring Choi Kang-hee, Park Gwang-hyun, Jung Chan and Jung So-young. It aired on MBC from July 4, 2004 to January 16, 2005 every Sunday at 8:55 a.m. for 26 episodes.


Ga-ran and Nam-joon were classmates in elementary school. Ga-ran is a tomboy who prefers trousers to skirts, and loves taekwondo more than her piano lessons. Nam-joon on the other hand is Mr. Perfect who's got good looks, a fine brain, and is the most popular guy in school, especially among the girls. One day, Ga-ran sees Nam-joon giving away the sweet bun which Ga-ran's friend gave him, to another girl. Ga-ran throws herself at Nam-joon and beats him up, and their rivalry lasts throughout high school. A few years after college, Ga-ran and Nam-joon meet again as adults, both recovering from recent break-ups. Despite their constant bickering, they gradually realize that they're meant to be.
