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.
