Do you see Ji An not bringing her own problems into work as well? I mean you can divest yourself of every little thing and be strictly a work robot now can you?
I didn't say Ji An is a saint. I am saying that being lonely and having family problems is not a good enough reason for me to forgive a rich girl who wants to kick a hardworking person out just to run daddy's company the minute she landed back in Korea.
I don't find her different from other backstabbing characters. In fact, I find her worse. Some of them have also worked hard to get a position or achieve something. She is a rich girl who wants everything and revenge, regardless if she has the right or not.
Also, Ji An never tried to set Tae Kang up with his personal life or kick him out without good reason. Na Ri is doing cowardly and immoral things. She is attacking a person's age, status and personal life and using her status just to get her way. She is plain bad.
I hate her type or character and I really don't see why there always needs to be a villain in shows. A lot of shows worked fine without someone being mean every second. Also, I really dislike the "excuses" they give such characters and twist.
What I mean is, they are pulling the "lonely girl" trick to get us to like her as a second female lead. If they want to make her "grey" as a character, then they better not have her be so eye-catchingly mean. Two extremes don't make a balance.
I can't be understanding of a character who murders people just because they like kittens. If she did not do such heavily mean things using such underhanded methods, I would care about her problems and drama. But not as she is.
Right now, she is just that annoying thorn that is placed there to cause drama, misunderstandings and problems and I feel kdramas rely on such characters too much because it's the easy way to cause conflict. I wish they'd try something new.
I know most people who watch this are caught up in it, but I'm just not. These characters don't annoy me to the point I want to watch to see them fail (which is what hooks audiences). They annoy me to the point they make the show annoying at times.
For such an otherwise nice series, I would have preferred a fair and equally talented and admirable competition. Not a cliche character like her. I still love it and will watch, but I just don't see her as something special or different. That's what I mean.
