  • Kim Myung-soo as Hong-jo

  • Genre : Fantasy / Romantic comedy

  • Based on the 2009–2010 Naver webtoon of the same name by Go A-ra, it aired on KBS2 from March 25 to April 30, 2020.
  • During its run, Welcome recorded a lowest single-episode rating of 0.8% and an average rating of 1.7%, beating the previous record lows set by Lovely Horribly and Manhole to become the lowest rated drama airing in a primetime slot on a free-to-air network in history.
  • Early working title of the series is Man Who Bakes Bread.
  • It was originally planned to air on cable channel tvN in the first half of 2019, and the lead roles were offered to Yook Sung-jae and Park Eun-bin, but both declined.


  • This series is simply an average show — not too bad but not exceptionally good either.
  • I like the cute romance between our secondary couple Ji Eun and Do Shik.
  • The OST was cute, it suited the atmosphere of the show well. My favorite : Better To Be You by Drew Ryan Scott.
  • Kim Myung Soo did a nice job at portraying Hong Jo and I think he suited this role very well. Hong Jo is the cutest and L is perfect for this role!
  • It is still worth the watch, it’s an enjoyable ride with some funny moments and some cute romance in it.

My Rating – 8/10
