Review – Witch’s Court
God, I hated this show. I’m usually a big fan of characters that break that mold – and our leading female certainly did – but unfortunately all that emerged from the mold was a jerk. I found the lead female to be annoying and groan inducing. I’ve read a lot of praise for this show for having a strong female protagonist… and I feel like they were watching a different show than I was. This is exactly the kind of person I can’t stand in real life, so it’s no wonder I didn’t care for this show. Even with the handsome Yoon Hyun Min playing the altruistic shrink turned prosecutor. Even with the much needed social commentary on sexual assault, misogyny, and personal responsibilities. Even with the pretty compelling mini-plots, aka the cases that were being solved as we waited for the “big case” to be solved. Even with all this going for it… I just couldn’t get past episode six.
Hey, not every show is for everyone. That’s why there’s so many of them. Something for everyone. This one just wasn’t for me.
You wanna see a show with a strong female protagonist? They’re out there. Remember. City Hall. Let’s Eat. Queen Seon Duk. Healer. It’s Okay, That’s Love. Sungkyunkwan Scandal. Signal. The K2 (the evil queen, not the princess). There are plenty! I usually don’t even bother writing “reviews” for shows I’ve abandoned, but this one compelled me to complain.
Witch’s Court final verdict: Abandoned to the Graveyard.
