Noona lovin' perfection. Yes, indeed.

I made jokes about this one in the comments when I first read the synopsis. I was expecting to be force-fed some BS attraction between a young guy and a woman 14yrs older than him. After the first episode, I felt like I was dead on with my expectations, but kept watching since it was entertaining enough. It didn't take long for me to see that I read more was actually dead wrong.

This show was so well-executed that even the cliche parts came off as normal occurrence. You feel like this story is somehow familiar, like you know some people who have experienced the same regardless of how far-fetched that would be. What I love most is each hurdle is a real growing experience. Not just an "Oh, I messed up and apologized, now forgive immediately." There's depth in each situation.

The chemistry between all the characters is spectacular. Yes, I said all. Each person fits into their role snugly and works so well with anyone else that's on-screen with them. Enemies, friends, lovers, family... you'd think you were made privy to the lives of actual people, it all feels so natural.

Best part: Uhm Jung Hwa's acting. None of that typical stuff actresses do to mimic falling in love. She brings those real reactions that women usually can't prevent from doing and endearing qualities of an enamored woman to her character. All of this while still maintaining a strong no-nonsense personality. She portrayed a woman that can be an axe-grinder, and cutely fall in love without compromising her strength. She also is able to grow to learn from her lessons and change only what needs changing.

For me, this is the second best drama I've ever watched and I'm a harsh critic. I'd highly recommend it.

First review, here I go!

Witch's Romance was the light and fluffy romcom I hoped for!

At first, I read the synopsis of this drama and was unsure about it. It seemed like a plain story line, but the show was a clear example of why some shows do not need to have a over-the-top plot to be outstanding! The first episode automatically drew me in.

In regards to characters: To be read more honest, I did not mind the age difference between the characters because I have seen some noona dramas/movies in the past, but I wondered if the characters would have good chemistry. Thankfully, the leads had fantastic chemistry which had me coming back for a new episode each time! Not only did the leads get me hooked on the series, but the other characters got me hooked as well. There were so many likable characters in this show and many of them were well developed; it was definitely hard to hate them! The acting was also great, I am surprised many of these actors have not done many major roles yet! The humor was another great component of this show as well. Literally, I would laugh out loud every episode (sorry to my family for this reason! haha!)!

The music in this show was pretty great. The main male lead (Yoon Dong Ha or Park Seo Joon in real life) actually sang a song for the Ost and I was honestly amazed when I realized it. Great actor and singer? Jackpot. As well, the other songs were also catchy and suited the show. The music is something I would actually listen outside of the show. As for rewatch value: I would for sure rewatch it, although I dont usually rewatch shows. I will definitely be recommending this to anyone who asks for drama suggestions.

10/10, Give it a try!

While both plots are completely different, the feeling the shows invoke is highly similar. Both have absolutely adorable couple scenes and extremely nice refreshing male leads
Recommended by twinsizedmattress
1. Both are older woman and younger man love.
2. Gong Yoo
3. Gong Hyo Jin

Even though this one is a little slow and if you like age difference kdrama and Gong Yoo you can watch this. He is too cute!

    Uhm Jung Hwa and Park Seo Joon are great actors, but Han Jae Suk is so bad in this (I only watched him in this drama). Really bad acting. They should've chosen someone else.

    I don't know why but there is just something about Uhm Jung-Hwa face that is purposelessy distracting to me. No matter how sexy the male lead or how great the plot I just can't seem to bear through another episode. It sucks because I do love the plot (I read all recaps) but I just can't seem to get over the oddity I find within her face. Ugh, I can be so frustrating at times lol.

    Dong ha falls in love with his noona boss Ji Yeon and how their relationship progresses is what this drama is all about. Loved the passionate beginning.

      I would recommend it. It starts off really nicely. Somewhere around the middle it gets kinda suffocating for few episodes, but it picks ups toward the end.

      Right now I'm at the middle and it is indeed suffocating. Could you tell me where things start to "fix"?

      sweetpotatocat May 17, 2016

      Maybe around ep 11 or 12. But to tell you the truth, I got stuck again around 14. Not sure if it will pick up again, but it's not definitely as good as the beginning was

    It's so funny. Why didn't I watch it earlier? Park Seo Joon is the best.
