Drama Challenge, Day 18

Day 18: Your favorite second female lead in a drama.

Well, they won’t be a meany-pants, that’s for sure. I can’t stand it when our only option for the second female lead is a snarky, underhanded, childish woman who wants nothing more than to ruin our heroine’s life. That’s not cool, sister. Not cool. And so I usually go in more for the helpful, best-friend second leads. And my favorite one is…

Hwang Joo-Yeon, Marriage Contract. After looking the drama up to get her name again (I’m terrible with names, seriously) I do realize there was another second female lead in this drama, Seo Na-Yoon. But I honestly didn’t remember her as much (mostly because I’m not a super fan of the actress), and I absolutely loved Joo-Yeon. Marriage Contract, for me, is one of those dramas whose characters make it rise above the rest into something special. There’s a depth to them that I don’t find in many other dramas. And I absolutely loved the friendship between Joo-Yeon and Hye-soo, our lead. I loved her sacrifices to look after Hye-soo’s daughter, and her pep talks to her friend, and her budding romance with the store manager. I loved her defending Hye-soo to Ji-hoon and her at once cautious-but-go-for-it attitude. Everybody needs a friend like her. Thanks, Kim So-Jin, you made your character a favorite. ^^

  1. Love love loved her character. She was the definition of friendship.
    Mine is KIm Seul gi in oh my ghostess.
    And nobody likes mean second leads. K-dramas need to start making female second leads nice human beings, and not people you want to throw off your screen.

    • Seriously! I don’t need that much therapeutic anger.

      I’ve never seen Oh My Ghostess, but I’ve heard good things. I’m glad it has a good second lead–the only thing I dislike more than a hateable one is an underdeveloped one.
