Dan Byul asks for concession but Gang Hyun rejects. Finally Dan Byul decides to pay him and get over with Gang Hyun whom she calls heartless.

Geum Young saves her by knocking director down but seeing Dan Byul dressed like bar girl,he misunderstands her odd jobs and says he does not want her dirty money.

Shana’s few cents

Dan Byul and Geum Young always seem to wake up on wrong side of bed,whenever they meet. Dan Byul is so busy with her problems that she always keeps Geum Young waiting.

I can see how harsh Geum Young would be to Dan Byul if ever she ends up working with him. Poor Dan Byul will have to really work hard to come in his good books.

I also feel sorry for Han Dyuk for having such a worthless daughter as Se Sil who sees nothing but money and comfort and always keeps taking money from naive and innocent Dan Byul.

Shana’s Few Cents

Witch’s Castle is about Ho Dyuk Se Sill and Dan Byul  who end up living together  marred by misfortunes. But I find these ladies nowhere witches.  Instead Mil Rae and Hee Jae are the real witches. Mil Rae enticed Ho Dyuk’s husband Nam Soo into love just to pay her bills. Hee Jae love was unfulfilled but the ways she is using to get it back is witch’s way not an angel’s.
