Sinopsis/Synopsis:

“Bagi wanita berusia 30 tahun, lebih mungkin terkena ledakan bom atom daripada menemukan pria yang tepat.”

Meski beratku naik 12 kg setelah pacarku memutuskanku malam Natal tahun lalu, namun wajahku tidak jelek. Pekerjaanku juga cukup baik. Dan yang terpenting, aku masih berumur 29 tahun! Aku harus semakin banyak mengikuti acara perjodohan. Sore ini aku akan bertemu seorang pria di sebuah kedai kopi hotel. Benar, jika sudah 30 tahun, putus sudah harapan untuk mendapat kekasih!

Kim Sam Soon

Wanita itu benar-benar jorok. Ia juga tampak sangat menyedihkan. Dan coba tebak apa yang ia lakukan sejak ditinggal teman kencannya sore tadi? Wanita itu berjalan tak tentu arah selama tiga jam ̶ ̶ memakai sepatu hak tingginya dengan terpincang-pincang, lalu duduk sendirian di pojangmacha dan memakan apa saja seperti binatang kelaparan.
—Jang Do Young (less)

Isn’t it that when you’re in love, cakes begin to be filled with all the things you could possibly know off? Things such as sweetness, softness, lightness, bitterness, and depth?

The third daughter of a mill owner, Sam Soon is a patissier who aspires to bake cakes that are as delicious as her father’s rice cakes. She’s the kind of woman who despite feeling restless and heartbroken would wake up at dawn, stand in front of the oven, and bake sweet-smelling bread. She’s relieved and amazed that her heart has not turned stone cold yet in spite of her heartaches and sadness.

Meanwhile, Do Yeong is the worst guy to be on a blind date with. Although he’s a good piano player and a good kisser, he’s a pessimist when it comes to love. He thinks he’ll never be happy again after his brother died and his first love left him (although he still patiently waits for the latter’s return).

After a chance encounter, Sam Soon and Do Yeong end up working together and striking an unlikely deal that involves him pretending to be her date. He’s far from being attracted to her while she can’t stand him. But why does Do Yeong feel totally uneasy whenever Sam soon’s not around?

Aku tertarik membaca novel ini karena sudah menonton versi K-dramanya. Selain itu, covernya adorable! 😍😍 Ternyata versi novelnya juga seru!
Novel my name is Kim Sam Soon adalah salah satu novel yang berhasil membuatku begadang demi menyelesaikan membaca novel ini. Saking seru dan penasarannya! ✨✨ Sebenarnya ceritanya mudah ditebak karena sudah nonton dramanya tapi aku tetap suka 💕💕

I was interested to read this novel because I had watched K-drama version and like it so I was curious about the novel. In addition, the cover is adorable! 😍😍 I am glad the novel version is also exciting!
My Mame is Kim Sam Soon is a novel that managed to make me stay up late in order to finish reading this novel. It was so intriguing! ✨✨
Actually the story is quite predictable because I have been watching the drama but I still like it 💕💕

Aku suka karakter Kim Sam Soon. Awalnya aku agak sebal dengan Kim Sam Soon karena dia seperti mengasihani dirinya sendiri karena belum menikah di usia 29 tahun. Namun lama-lama, penulis mengungkap sisi-sisi positifnya sehingga aku berubah menjadi suka pada Kim Sam Soon.

Aku suka fakta bahwa Kim Sam Soon tahu skala prioritas dan apa yang penting. “Setahun ke depan, umurku 30 tahun.  Jika memungkinkan, sebelum saat itu tiba,aku ingin bertemu dengan pria sehat dan menjadi seorang wanita yang berumah tangga. Aku tidak punya waktu untuk melakukan penipuan dan berbincang-bincang sambil tertawa bersamamu.”

I like  Kim Sam Soon’s character. Initially, I was a bit annoyed with Kim Sam Soon as she engrossed in pitying herself for not married at the age of 29. But after several pages, the authors reveal the good side of Kim Sam Soon so her character become more likeable.

I love the fact that Kim Sam Soon knew what is important and her priorities are. “A year into the future, my age will be 30 years old. If possible, before the time comes, I want to meet with a healthy man and being a married woman. I do not have time to pretend dating  you, or chatting, and laughing with you.”

Ada banyak kalimat yang quotables yang membuatku mengganguk-ngangguk dan merenung ketika membacanya. Misalnya:

Mengapa kau harus menunggu wanita itu selama lima tahun?
Aku juga tidak tahu. Apakah hal itu disebut tolol atau pantang menyerah, aku pun tidak mengerti.

3.5 bintang untuk My Name is Kim Sam Soon!

There are many sentences that made nod and reflect my behavior when I read the novel. For example:

Why do you have to wait for her for five years?
I also do not know. Whether it is called stupid or unyielding, I did not understand.


3.5 stars My Name is Kim Sam Soon!
