I started watching this drama because of the great reviews and the story sounded interesting. However I was disappointed with almost everything about this drama. It was annoying and choppy. There wasn't much flow to this drama. One moment everything would be good and then all hell would break loose, it was like there wasn't any inbetween. The naivety and stupidity of the main girl Park Kae In annoyed me to no read more end. I constantly wanted to punch her. Although I didn't like the main guy either, I will say that I enjoyed seeing Lee Min Ho playing a more mature character. He has come along way since BBF.
Even though I didn't like this drama, I can see how it has appeal to others. Especially if you're into the whole 'love can happen in any situation' kind of story.

I can't say I will recommend this to anyone based on my experience but you're more then welcome to give it a shot and see for yourself if you agree or disagree with me.

Happy Watching Everyone :)

Personal Taste was my first drama and it’s the reason why I’m still watching dramas and also the reason of my interest in Korean music. It was very enjoyable and fun to watch. After watching many (not actually) it’s still my favorite one.

It’s mixing of romantic comedy and melodrama. I laughed a lot while watching it and I felt very sad too. First few episodes are incredibly funny and after that read more it becomes sadder and more mature. I enjoyed every moments of it.

Acting/Casting is the best thing about this drama. Before starting this drama I didn't know who is Lee Min Ho, I knew only about Son Ye Jin and actor performing Director Choi. Son Ye Jin is great as always. I expected great performance from her and she gave it!! Who said she is annoying?? I didn’t find her annoying a bit or maybe I don’t know the meaning of annoying. In my view Park Kae In was the best character of the drama; she is heart of the drama. Without her this drama is nothing.
I loved friendship between Jo Eun Ji and Jung Sung Hwa, it was great fun to watch them. Other supporting cast is also good especially Kim In Hee, her character is really powerful and makes you to hate her.
And finally Lee Min Ho, he was very good.

Music of Personal Taste is the reason, why I started watching it. Music is really great!! It fits this drama very well. Almost every track is great and instrumentals are in my favorite playlist.

I’ve already seen this drama twice and one of two dramas that I watched again.

I admit some parts are boring but overall it was a great drama, a must watch!!

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.

    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.
