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!
