Reviewer Joel Keller of Decider wrote, "The plot of Love To Hate You is definitely contrived, but the story of Mi-ran and the performance of Kim Ok-vin makes the series very watchable."[22] Jonathon Wilson of Ready Steady Cut gave the series 3 stars out of 5, writing: "Contrived and overlong, Love to Hate You is nonetheless watchable thanks to committed performances, light but effective comedy, and some interesting characterization."[23]
