Normally, I don't like Dramas with more than 30 Episodes, because I am not very patient when I am watching a Drama. But if the Plot sounds interesting (like What Happens to my family? or Warrior Baek Dong Soo, ...) I give Dramas with more Episodes a chance and watch them.
Legendary Witch was one of the Dramas I didn't want to watch because I didn't like the Plot at first. My reason to change my mind was because of the positive feedback from other viewers.

Story:
Like written before, I didn't like the plot at first, but when I watched this Drama I realized that the story is about more than the four women and the Ma Family. The story gets exciting with every Episode and some of the Cliffhengers are exciting, too.

Actors/Cast:
Most of the Actors I didn't know before. I liked Ha SeokJin before and I know Han JiHye for a while now. Both of them are very good actors. HSJ played the role of a widower who loves to bake very well. I think the role suits him. His acting is wonderful. In some Scenes I wanted to cry because his acting was very realistic. HJH acts very well, too. Sometimes I was annoyed by her character which she played. How could be a woman so naive??? But with every Episode I realized the development of her Role. The other 3 (or 4 when Kim SooMi count, too) acts very well, too. What I liked very much were the different characters. The woman who wants to find out, why his husband and son died. The Woman who is naive at first but develop a powerful character. The Woman who can talk very much and the mother of a son, who she loves the most. The three younger Woman sees the older Woman (plaeyd by Go DooShim) as their mother ans themself as sisters. Then their is the woman who is played by Kim SooMi. At first I didn't like her, but after a few Episode I thought that she is very funny :). The father-in-Law of HSJ is nice. He acts very well and shows his interest in his 'Love' openly. The Members of the 'Ma Family' playes very well, too. Most of them I didn't like but Joohee was nice...sometimes. Dohyun was my favourite in his family^^. DooJin and Driver Tak were well, too.

Music:
My favourite Song was by Gunji of Gavy NJ. This Song and another Song was played often and I think that both of them suits the plot and story.

Rewatch Value:
Normally, I would say 'yes, of course', but because of the many Episodes I give 9 out of 10. That means, that I would watch it again but it is not so important like other Dramas (Althogh I want to watch Ha SeokJin again *-*)

Because of the 40 Episodes and some other minor things I give this Drama 9.5 out of 10^^. But I would like to recommend :)

When I read the synopsis of Legendary Witch, it reminded me a bit of Harmony (movie). And to some extent it was a drama-adaptation of the film. Except that Legendary Witch is hell makjang. The show has a melodramatic start and by some ridiculous fate the four prison cellmates end up being related to each other in some way or the other. The characters, especially, the negative characters are hell exaggerated (but then what is makjang without exaggerations? lol). So plot-wise it is very predictable and annoying even. But at the same time, there are some really funny incidences and pairings that make you want to come back for just a bit more.

My personal favorites were Young Ok, and that halapati who kept trying to date her. God I loved Young Ok. She was hilarious throughout and her song is totally stuck in my mind. Gen-Gen-Gen-Gentleman-ida XD I liked Pung Geum and the driver dude. They were so cool and I loved their ending. The main couple was a little stiff at times. I don't really like their acting but their scenes together were sweet. I liked the OST.

Overall it's not the best drama out there but in terms of makjang it's pretty average and watchable and Young Ok definitely makes it more worth it.
