Drama Kisses review: "Touch Your Heart is basic in its formula, but it did what a romantic comedy needs to do most by completely selling our main couple. Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na’s fantastic chemistry coupled with an adorable relationship journey made the drama quite enjoyable. Then add in that little bit of angst and a dash of thrills, and everything balanced out well."

The Drama Corner review: "I do think after the couple confessed its feelings, as per the usual dramaland tradition, it felt kind of repetitive and lost some bit of steam, but not to the point where I got bored. Also, there is surely unnecessary noble idiocy but thankfully it lasts for a very short time. ... Lee Dong Wook is perfect in the drama, showing the sincerity and maturity of the character effectively. Yoo In Na is like sunshine — so pretty, delightful and loveable. Oh Jung Se is fantastic as always. The office crew formed by Shim Hyung Tak, Park Kyung Hye, Park Ji Hwan, Jang So Yun is excellent. Lee Sang Woo is great as well! Touch Your Heart is definitely an eye candy but also has an adorable heart, full of charming characters and a lovely lead couple. A pleasant ride indeed!

The Fangirl Verdict review: "Light, frothy, and easy on the drama palate, Touch Your Heart is a fun little watch that ought to add a nice amount of cute to your viewing schedule. Yoo In Na is the star of this show, with her personal charm making our protagonist earnest, adorable and very likable, pretty much regardless of the situation. Lee Dong Wook’s straitlaced lawyer is a great foil for Yoo In Na’s sparkly enthusiasm, and together, they lit up my screen as they bickered, talked and stumbled their way to True Love. Our drama world is filled with secondary characters who are mostly fun, and even the less fun ones grow on you by the end. A breezy, groovy OST that’s nicely employed to amp up the feels, is what ties this little ragtag package together. Sometimes the plot goes off on a case-related tangent, but Show always brings it back to what’s important – the heartfelt, and the cute."

I agree about the show losing steam a bit towards the end -- I don't know how it is that some kdramas seem to spend the last few episodes feeling like they're filling for time, and then still end up at a finale that feels rushed or abrupt somehow. But overall, this was adorable and sweet.

Yoo In Na reenacting her commercials on her first day in the office was peak comedy to me and Lee Dong Wook is always a joy to watch. Overall I liked it as light entertainment (though there were some moments in the stalker plotline that spooked me)

I also really enjoyed the supporting cast.

At least some of the filler/noble idiocy led to that reveal with the billboard. That was well done.

In ep. 1, we were not sure if we'd like Oh Yoon-seo at all. But she grew on us. Small character "flaws" were overshadowed by a pure heart.

The supporting cast was great, especially Park Kyung-hye as Dan Mun-hui. Very expressive face, and set up as Hollywood Homely even though pretty. Glad to see her (sorry for spoiling) find romantic happiness, through a roundabout route!
