Real Drama Talk: Strong Female Characters
In Korean dramas, women are often weak and pitiful. They can't take care of themselves and constantly need a man to come to their rescue.

I think its about time to change celebrate the ladies that DON'T need a man's help!

Go Eun-chan (Coffee Prince)

She's a hard worker who is juggling a billion part time jobs to support her family. She takes a job at a coffee shop because she wants to help her loved ones and she's not going to let anyone stand in her way.
Even throughout the drama she's tough and doesn't let anyone push her around. She's true to herself and is just plain awesome.

Gil Ra-im (Secret Garden)

First off, she's a stunt woman so you know she's tough. She doesn't require any help from anyone and never lets anyone baby her. She's by far one of my favorite female leads ever!

So who is your favorite female lead? Make your own card about it!

Do you think women are too weak in K-dramas or are dramas getting better at making the ladies as awesome as they should be?!

I think lady characters are starting to get better from what they were so that's encouraging!
Ha Ji Won is an actress i adore... She pretty much acts in mostly bad ass female roles like king 2 hearts, Damo, huntress and secret garden.... I adore her and her skills..
I think women roles in kdrama nowadays are getting better. Women are portrayed more strong even if their roles aren't the major ones. It's nice to see that cause it encourages other women or girls to become independent and give them strength just like me :D
@kpopandkimchi i watched in huntress n i started following her up but my fave part for her was secret garden as well... especially because of the chemistry between her and hyun bin...
