Warm and Cozy is nothing ground breaking when it comes to summer romantic comedies. There's the misunderstandings, the interfering second leads and twisted connections. But despite all that the show manages to stay pretty lighthearted.

The biggest flaw are the characters. Beak Geon U is both infuriating in how he treats Lee Jeong Ju and also sweet when he wants to be. Which leads to a rollercoaster that's not always fun. And while Hwang Uk is written- and acted- to keep you invested, Mok Ji Won feels like she was added in as an after thought, with little depth.

That being said, the acting is well done, capturing nuances and chemistry. And the directing captures the warm summer days and picturesque feel of Jeju Island.

Not the best out there, not the worst. And great if you're a fan of the main leads.

@sillysym Totally agree with you. Main characters was kinda annoying... forced and zero chemistry between them.

it's an old fashioned story type but the cast acting especially the main couple who has made up for all the cheesy sweet hilarious moments in this drama ..Warm yep !!! you feel the warmth of all those delicious yummy dishes and the love temperature on the island ^.+
Cozy and it's definitely yesss through communication and interdependence among all those ppl in such a small island ^.^

Like everyone says: the title says it all. This drama is the definition of "warm and cozy".

It is extremely cute and funny. I laughed a lot. Yoo Yeonseok is amazing as always. I never thought he'd made me laugh so much! Kang Sora is a goddess ♥

But, yes there is a big BUT here, this drama is nothing special. The script is a classic annoying and tiring korean drama. It's very colorful,yes, very positive and relaxing,yes, but i won't lie i didn't really liked it. Beside the laugh i had and the -some- good actors, i didn't like it. It kinda disappointed me and that made me sad.

I rated with 3 stars. If you like this kind of dramas i recommend you to watch it. If you understand though when a rom-com drama is annoying and tiring i do not recommend it.

Finished it, but had to force myself to do so. It was very old-fashioned, some of the actings were poor (Kang So Ra, Yu Yeon Seok and Kim Seong O were amazing though) and frustratingly stupid at times. What I liked about it was the warmth it brought every week, but I'm sure I will qucikly forget about this drama. Disappointed.
