'Personal Taste' is my 2nd Korean drama. I read its synopsis and felt it was worth giving this series a try. It was pretty enjoyable. The comedy is light and not exaggerated. A few remarkable scenes made me giggle, and I clearly remember, I cried twice. The cast is good. Son Ye Jin, Lee Min Ho, Kim Ji Suk and Wang Ji Hye fit their respective roles. Han Chang Ryul (Kim Ji read more Suk) is supposed to be hated as he is the antagonist but I liked him instead as towards the end, I developed a soft spot for him regardless of the fact that he made the protagonists suffer. I liked the character Park Gae In (Son Ye Jin) because I could somewhat relate myself to her- clumsy and being taken advantage of. Lee Min Ho's good looks are a treat for the girls. Initially, the drama kept me hooked and I was like 'I wanna watch the next episode NOW' but midway, it lost its charm though not completely. But basically, I didn't feel the urge to move on to the next episode and complete it in one single day if I could as I felt during the first few episodes. I wanted to see the ending (though I somewhat had an idea as to how the ending would be) and that's why continued watching it despite feeling utterly bored and annoyed during some parts. I would say I was not completely satisfied with how the drama ended. There were many things I expected to happen in the concluding episode but they didn't happen.

This drama series has a few good soundtracks. I like 'Can't Believe It' by Younha the most.

On a side note, I would like to say a few things regarding the outfits of the actors. The ladies were well dressed as per their character. I especially liked Wang Ji Hye's hairstyle. But the problem seemed to lie with the men- Lee Min Ho's slightly-above-the-knee length coat looked kind of weird if you ask me. I don't know if that's the fashion among the men in Korea but whatever; I didn't like it. Also he carried this handbag while going to his office which made him look girly. I couldn't help but notice this. Talking about Kim Ji Suk, his coat and pants occasionally had funny color combination. Like in one episode, he wore a black coat and red pants!

Overall, this is a good watch if you are a rom-com fan. It has a good story line, a bunch of funny moments to make you smile and moments which will make you go 'awww'. However, I don't think I will re-watch it.

when I first read the plot of this it sounded great and I wasn't dissapointed! Ah I love this drama! The interaction between the two characters is really funny and I just love the transformation of Kae In's character thoughout the drama. I felt I could relate to Kae In quite a bit, so the experience was even more enjoyable. The set, the house is soo cool I want one! ><
I read more made sure I got a copy of this drama so I could watch it over and over, I hardly ever do this but this drama was one of the few that I have!

It has most of the same comedy vibe. In one they're pretending to be a couple, in the other one, one of them pretends he is gay.
They both have the main couple living together in personal taste the guy is pretending to be gay and in just you it is a secret from the people at work.

    The drama was rather draggy but I continue to watch it as I am a fan of Lee Min Ho. The last 2 episodes were the most interesting whereby every loose end was tied up nicely.

    It's not a MUST WATCH drama but I love it, I think Lee Min Hoo is a good reason to watch it.

    I really enjoyed this drama, I watched it because I am a fan of Lee Min Ho and I also thought the premise about him pretending to be gay and the second guy as the lead were good. However, there is too much drama in the middle, I prefer the comedy in the beginning and the ending. I liked the acting in it too.

    The first 9 - 10 episodes were hilarious, but then it started to drag and nothing really happened. I have two episodes left, they seem promising, so I am looking forward to them,

    The first time I watched this drama was a bit after it aired and I couldn't make it through. I'm really glad I returned this year to watch it because it's really good! I think the first time life got in the way or something. I miss 2010 dramas.
