Does this drama fit MY "Personal Preference"?

Honestly right now, I don't even know why I'm at this point of writing a review for this, or even why I started watching and finished this drama. Perhaps because it's been so long since I've watched one, or written a review for one i felt a bit of an itch to jump back into it. Regardless, the drama i ended up jumping back in, even if only temporarily, to review is this one. I had heard of it, but honestly the reason i never watched and reviewed it to begin with was it never really struck me as a stand out drama that I would be much interested in.

Regardless of any prior sentiments, I ended up watching it and being the type I am, i had my moments with this drama. After having watched more than a few, of course it quickly began to just follow and fit in with a pre-set and proven plot line, so the story in itself is good, but predictable. I enjoyed it, for the most part, because many things kept me in it, like the music, and Son Ye Jin. Son Ye Jin basically sold this drama to me. I'm a immense fan of her, love her to death, but for good reason and confirmed in this drama when she basically carried the drama through in my opinion. Lee Min Ho did his fair share to be honest, and of course it takes two to sell a romance, but put their acting side by side and honestly, Lee Min Ho, while his acting was decent, Son Ye Jin was just great. Disclaimer that my previous sentence might be biased a bit for Son Ye Jin and against Lee Min Ho, but i stand by my opinion.

Either way, I didn't end this drama thinking "well that was a waste of 3 days", which is a success in my book tbh. It's not a top 10 in my opinion, but it certainly was a successful drama.

A Fair Drama with a Kitsch Romantic Flair

A fair drama with a different romantic flair can be found in Personal Taste. Park Kae In is the trusting and foolish daughter of a famous architect though she is a failure as a furniture maker. Following an emotionally tragic event Kae In sublets a room in her private home to Jeon Jin Ho, who she believes to be gay. But the reasons for Jin Ho seeking boarding are dishonest; he is only masquerading as a gay man as a means to further his own career in an architect bid.

But despite both characters' personal failings and some hilarious and upsetting circumstances Kae In and Jin Ho soon find themselves falling for each other. Whether or not they can turn their tumultuous relationship to a romantic affair is the core element of this mildly entertaining drama.

Characterization is strong and the acting believable, but the love rival for Jin Ho's affections is a stereotypical witch whom is not engaging in the least and weakened subplots by being too unbelievable and not being used effectively.

The plot itself is strong but relying too much upon Jin Ho's pretense as a gay man to carry the story. Without that added bit the drama would have been too run of the mill for most to care about checking out. But despite Jin Ho's sexual orientation being “important” it was never the strong conflict viewers would expect, and not enough funny and tragic moments resulting from it.

Execution of Personal Taste left something to be desired. Overall this drama is lacking; too many missing components or pieces weak.

But drama fiends should still check it out and see if it works as a storyline they could get involved in. While viewers may not re-watch it many times or buy it on DVD most will enjoy the first time. This drama is a bit different and may provide 16 odd hours of fair entertainment. Overall, I'd recommend someone to check Personal Taste out but I would not say it is a must watch despite the promising premise.
