Ban Ji Yeon gained the nickname "Witch", because of the way she works as a reporter. She gives it her all, lands many good news stories, is direct and doesn't try to look pretty to everyone. Her work is her life. And that only happened, because on the day of her wedding, her fiance disappeared on her and since then she decided she doesn't need any romance and can enjoy her life on her own. One day she is chasing after a news story and because she is in need of a vehicle, she steals a bike from Yun Dong Ha. He is one of those people, that love to spread love, works in every field that offers a job and is Mr. Nice. This first encounter was only the beginning of their love story, which gets spiced up by their age difference, their age and her character.

All in all, A Witch's Romance is that one drama, that you can watch without it needing to be amazing. The chemistry between the characters is enough to make it good, the story itself is not too new but still enjoyable. I loved the problems they had, because I felt like they were rather natural. Nobody went out of their way and got a new life after meeting the other. They just fit together so nicely.

Also, the acting was good and you could see, they probably had fun acting all the things out. Including the hot kissing scenes. Because wow, the gifs I watched from those kissing scenes actually made me watch this drama. That's how good their chemistry is.

Talking about chemistry, the male second lead did not have it. I still think he added a good part to the story, because I kept waiting to see why he actually left, but I enjoyed the times when he wasn't there a lot more.

Another thing I liked was how they unfold the whole "drama". Because it wasn't as dramatic as I thought it would get. It was fun and enjoyable. Sometimes a bit unrealistic, because of how desperate the Ban Ji Yeon was, but still all funny and understandable. What I liked a lot were also the side characters like Yong Su Cheol, the fortune teller, Jeong Eun Chae or Ji Yeons restaurant-friend.

I'd say, if you love romantic comedies and need something light, this will be your drama. The only warning I must give is, that the main couple is one, where the girl is a lot older than the guy. But it didn't do anything bad and the problems surrounding them wasn't solely their age difference.

Both are about a woman in her late thirties who dates a man in his early twenties. Both women are passionate journalists, and the men help both of them.
Both series involve a younger man who falls for an older woman, and the complications that arise from it. The main female lead is also stalked and tormented, and the younger man has to protect her.

A very cute, comedic romance. I wasn't a fan of the ending (a bit too cheesy for my taste). Enjoyed the story overall nonetheless!

After reading all those good comments my expectations were too high. I'm very disappointed with this drama. It was fine, but it was painfully cliche. A lot of people said it was one of the best romances in K-Dramas, but I think it was only because Park Seo Jun is so good he could create a chemistry with a broomstick. Enjoyable, but not the drama I will miss or would like to rewatch.

Easily one of the best romance dramas I've seen. Such a fantastic and adorable drama!

This drama was such an easy watch. One of those dramas with barely any misunderstandings, barely any love triangle melo, and barely any separation between the leads. I really liked it. Love noona romance, it has a good message. Also, I fell in love with Seojun ;A; and it was nice seeing Hyeonmin again after watching Discovery of Love.

I loved half of the drama, it was just what I was looking for to improve my mood - witty, funny, simple with amazing actors and their good chemistry. Not so sure about rest of the drama though, but to me it was exactly what I was looking for.
Until the world travelling man returned to SK, personally I would have preferred him hehe
