Tak Gu was born as the son of Gu Il Jung, chairman of Geoseong Foods, before his father knew he had a son. Il Jung’s mistress, Seo In Suk, drove Tak Gu’s mother, Mi Sun, and her son away. In Suk and Seung Jae, Il Jung’s secretary, both conceived a son named Ma Jun. By covering up the truth, they make sure he is the first son of the Geoseong family. Born with a heightened sense of smell along with a pure heart, Tak Gu receives training under Il Jung’s teacher, Mr. Pal Bong, and begins to show signs of a talent as a baker. On the other hand, Ma Jun develops an inferiority complex after realizing the secret behind his birth and the existence of Tak Gu, who was very similar to Il Jung. The men soon develop a deep rivalry to become a better baker than the other. 'Bread, Love and Dreams' is the story of Tak Gu’s many trials and tribulations as he works to become the best baker the world has ever known.
