After the first episode, it isn't looking too good for this drama and me. While the leading male is pretty adorable, the woman is driving me absolutely up a tree. It's been a pretty long while since I hated a lead character this much. "Witch" doesn't cover it; she's the kind of woman that I would personally like to (W)itch slap upside the head once or twice to make a point. She has: (1) stolen a child's bicycle, (2) ruined a charity event, (3) been sharp and generally witchy to her co-workers, (4) refused to apologize or see her wrongdoing, and (5) completely ruined a dream event for orphaned students and deliberately destroyed their belief in Santa. All in the first episode ~ I kind of understand why her co-workers have it out for her so badly. And the little "I'm so lonely, I could die because a guy *** years ago broke up with me right before the wedding" scene leave MUCH to be desired. In fact "Get Over It" comes to mind. Yep, not feeling the pity for her; someone needs to take her down.
That said, revenge dramas aren't really my thing, especially when it involves the humiliation or devastation of someone. And that is what her co-workers appear to be setting her up for ~ total public meltdown. I just don't find that funny; it seems more tragic or sad. What a depressing life and what a horrible fall! While I want her to be taken down a peg, I don't particularly want to watch it happen.
This drama and I just aren't meshing right now; I don't like anyone here except the male lead, and he's barely appeared. Plus, I'm not rooting for the "witch" to have romance; right now she doesn't deserve it. I don't want her to carry on in her pride, but I don't want to watch her fall. Yep, everything is pretty much set on "don't". Unless it pulls in a desire for the "I do," this drama is getting skimmed.
