Passive, soft and delicate female leads were common in Korean dramas for a long time. Usually, there are two handsome, rich and almighty guys, fighting over a tiny weak woman and helping her with all her problems. All she does is to cry every time she faces a problem, waiting for someone to solve it for her. But not anymore.
For past few years, we have seen several inspiring and strong female leads, who can easily solve all her problems. It is very inspiring that Korean filmmakers are trying to develop more sophisticated characters, with an increasing number of strong female leads at the center of the genre. Women who are resilient and strong, who are intelligent and excel in their fields.These are the characters who are not only strong and inspiring, but also beautiful and stylish.
