I started to watch this drama because of Lee Min Ho who's my favourite actor but I needed to watch only one episode to come to like Park Gae In a lot. Maybe the story wasn't a masterpiece but I think it wasn't bad- I had a lot of fun while I was watching this drama. The actors were good- especially Lee Min Ho. I must admit I do not pay attention read more to music in films and dramas- I can't recall even a fragment of any song from this drama so it makes me feel sure the music wasn't outstanding but on the other hand I remember it wasn't annoying. I like this drama quite a lot so maybe I'll watch it again although I'm not a person who re-watches films or dramas really often. In general 9- ?? ?? :D

Good Drama! The lead male Jeon Jin Ho (Lee Min Ho; skip Boys over Flowers and watch this) is not only gorgeous but also acts honerably, for the most part, with the people in his life and mostly with Park Gae In. I like how their friendship develops over time into love. I can not give this a higher rating because there were some boring parts. There was also some choppy editing/directing read more but mostly it is enjoyable and fun! Its a drama to watch after a heavy melodrama when you want something lighter.

Warm and Cozy reminded me of Personal Taste because the leads have a situation of living together and they take care of each other.
I think they have a similar aura of becoming friends before, and then, romance.

In both dramas lead female character is quite unsexual (at the beggining) and is trying to find her womanhood with a help from a guy.
In 'Personal...' the lady is clumsy, soft and cute while in 'Witch...' the lady is cold, dark and arrogant.

    I watched it because I wanted to see Min Ho act like a normal person and not a creepy rapist (like in Boys Over Flowers, bleck). Was not disappointed, however after episode 10 the plot goes way downhill and the characters becomes aggravating.

    just rewatched this and I forgot how much I loved the first 10 episodes, they were really good but the last few were a little boring

    There's a line In Hee says about Gae In, "You pretend to be so nice and caring, but in the end, you only see what you want to see." Honestly, even though the line was purely there to show how mean In Hee is, as the series progressed, I felt like that's exactly the way Gae In is.

    I loved it for Lee Min Ho. He can bring out best chemistry with any actress, seriously! It was good watch not great though. No much surprising or that interesting story line.

    Huge fan of Lee Min Ho, so I will continue to watch even if he acts in dramas like this. Looking at his acting itself is everything to me! I know, Am crazy like that.

    It was pretty descent and smooth going drama for me. 7/10

    Me encanta pues me gusta mucho Lee Min Ho, entretanto, lo es el mejor dorama que ya he visto. Es bueno, pero es mas como agua y azucar.

    Contrary to most people here, I enjoyed the first half much more than the second. The second leads started to really get on my nerves, In Hee and Chang Ryul just didn't know when to stop.I really enjoyed the beginning of the drama, it was so funny and refreshing, compared to many other romantic comedies. But then the clichés started to pile up and I just wanted to curse at the screen. It's a nice watch over-all, but there are definitely better dramas out there. The story was too simple over all. Good acting though, and fun comedy. A score of 7 in my books.

      I agree with u completely! I didn't even realize most ppl enjoyed the second half more until i read some of the comments. In fact, I was so annoyed during the second half of the drama tht i never finished it.. I just started rewatching it now. And my feelings are exactly the same as before smh, but I'm gonna finish it this time. So far it's a 7 for me too, and I don't think tht will change lol.

    Great getting towards the end..and it feels like I just wanna scream at.the top of my lungs...But I had to remind myself it's a kdrama. need to just let it go but....sometimes i just to need to ask why are women characters in mostly all kdramas I have seen either complete lunatics, obssessors, or just plain clueless and walked on like some point it is neither funny or cute...just saying sigh.
