There were lots of bright tones here and there which I can say compensated to some dry moments and knots that were loosely conspicuous in a kdrama addict’s eye. The doting scenes melted me and made me craved for more so some scenes that are really unnecessary were left forgotten and forgiven. Your typical I’m-here-to-protect-you-love-story but with a twist.
We had a vulnerable lead girl who was betrayed by her bestfriend after seducing her ex-boyfriend and an architect lead man on a mission to redeem his father’s lost glory by analyzing a house designed by a legendary architect who is the lead girl’s father. Our lead girl mistook her hero as homosexual and let him board in her house but then later on, they both developed feelings toward each other.
The cute twist of the heroine misconceiving her lead man to be homosexual plus the cohabitation ride that slowly but surely built up the romance, this is the drama that secured Lee Min Ho a slot on my radar as I enjoyed their story immensely.
There are a lot of love and life lessons for women to learn on this drama as Gae In provided her insights on how focusing on personal dreams should come first before frustrations. A must watch Lee Min Ho drama to add on your plate if you have just recently started liking him.
Why it made my favorite list is because even if I refrain from weak heroines, the romance was sweet and fulfilling in the sense that the lead girl redeemed herself through her hero’s encouragement to become a better version of herself, while the hero learned to step back and appreciate the people around him instead of keeping all his woes alone.
“Personal Taste” is a melo-romcom hybrid that ran heartfelt scenes through the lead girl’s personal issues and yet her sojourn to overcome her struggles were pieces of comic picture frames and sassy interactions shared with her hero. It is a tale that I watched over and over again and I still get to enjoy leering at their romance bloomed at my very eyes. A classic romcom prototype with adorable love couple, easy storyline and a box full of sweetness. –jediprincess♡♡♡
