Ban Ji Yeon is a 39-year-old reporter who takes her work a bit too seriously, earning herself the nickname witch. Yun Dong Ha is a 25-year-old who will do any kind of job to make money. After a twist of events that leads Ji Yeon to steal a bike from Dong Ha's job, they continuously run into each other creating more problems in one another's lives.
Because of their past romantic endeavors, both Ji Yeon and Dong Ha have a hard time accepting love. But as fate would have it, Dong Ha becomes Ji Yeon's assistant, and it seems as if they were meant for each other.
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.
