If you are into family drama you will like it, at-least to an extent. As described in the summary of the show, story is based on a middle aged woman. The script written is a story that actually happens in reality in many homes. When the woman is married, she gets occupied with all the household work at the in-laws home. All she do is work all day for the whole family and she is not treated well or no one thinks that she too can get tired of working for family, taking care of the family. Woman should always embrace herself even though she is married but, all with all the work whole day she doesn't get any time for herself. When both Han Jung Won and Kang Hae Jin found their husband cheating on they both tries their best to hold onto their husband but Jung Joon Hoo and Lee Jin sang don't care for their wife at all.
Finally Hae Jin give-up up on Jin Sang and divorces him. After some time she settles herself well with support of her family. And now she is all famous and dating Oh Dae Gu who is a scriptwriter. Same scriptwriter whose wife Bae Yu Ran was cheating on him with Joon Hoo. The story seems quite complicated from the listener's point of view but it is quite good while watching. Not all the episodes aree amazing but it's okay.
This drama also tells you that when you realize you have made a huge mistake and all you want now is a second chance. But, time has gone by which makes it difficult to have you second chance. That is why when things are still in your hand you should think carefully about it rather than regretting it later. It is true that person learns from his mistakes and needs another chance to prove himself. But life is not that fair always.
At the end it is shown that even if you realized your mistake and need a chance again but the best way to see that person happy is to let him go. At the end, the story of the three couples viz.. Hae Jin-Jin Sang, Dae Gu- Yu Ran, Joon Hoo-Jung Won takes different mode. Jin Sang has realized his mistake and is supporting Hae Jin and Dae Gu's relationship. Joon Hoo who refused to get on knees and beg to his wife before, has lost his position in the company. Bae Yu Ran who once again tried to gain her goal which was by wrong means has backfired on her and it has also revealed her affair with Joon Hoo due to which Joon Hoo's image is broken totally.
I think the story will get happy ending as Hae Jin has asked Dae Gu to make it. Well it be happy ending just for the couple and to an extent she is deserving for that happy ending. Since it is a drama it will ofcourse have a happy ending which doesn't happen in real life always. But nothing the less this drama tells that being a middle aged woman is okay. She can still get up and stand independently. When you are a house wife you are the support to your family and when you stand independently you are not just their support but a role model, strength to many women out their too stand independently.

I had enough after 106 episodes. I should've dropped it a lot earlier but had hope the writers knew what they were doing. They don't. Worst daily drama I ever seen. All you need to do is read the comments to see if it's going in the right direction. It's not. Even as the final episodes are being aired, the comments says it all. Nothing good happens. Just problem after problem even in its final weeks of airing. This writer doesn't know how to write a good plot at all. Heck, the daily drama "Unasked Family" ended last week but we got at least a good 25 to 30 episodes of good progress. That writer knew what they were doing. This writer for "Want A Taste" doesn't.

What this drama feature: CHEATING! And a whole lot of it. Also, a fake side couple believing their love is true after the girl slept and had sex with a drunken guy (Isn't this rape? No consent from the guy because he was drunk). Child abuse, lack of parental concern for their kids, good scenes for the main leads only last a week and then it's several more weeks of turmoil, very weak and pathetic main leads, stupid story plot that doesn't make sense at all, no good music out of this.

Overall, a bad message this drama sends out. So don't waste your time on this. You don't "WANT A TASTE" of this. It'll just leave you with that bitter nasty taste. I have never given a drama this low of a score before but if I could, I would give this a zero.
