alternatively: a week and one day to talk about and make things for women you appreciate in celebration of International Women’s Day (8th March)
Day One: Least Typecast Fave
An actress you appreciate who manages to not get boxed into industry stereotypes (re: roles), someone who constantly surprises you.
Day Two: Rent’s Due
A character whose journey through adulthood you identify with, from job searches to daily upkeep, to bills etc. Someone who you feel reflects to some degree the struggle of either blazing through life or falling and getting back up again.
Day Three: 40 + up, women in stories you adored
This is self explanatory, no? Female characters in dramas over the age of 40 that blew you away.
Day Four: Work X3
A character with a job or a relationship with work that you found either interesting/was merged well with the show/was unexpected etc.
Day Five: Femininity + Her
A character who dealt with being a woman in a way that interested you. Either in the way she behaved, or the way she dealt with the way she was percieved or the way she dealt with her existence ‘as a woman’. Am I being clear enough? Forgive me if I’m not.
Day Six: Strong Foundations
Wax lyrical about a character who was supported either her friends or/and her family. Female characters supported in life throughout, called out when they should and loved for who they are.
Day Seven: So Goodbye
Female characters with the best disappearances (no death, never death unless it’s fake death) and gap years, off to better themselves, or leaving for whatever heroic dramatic reasons. I’ll be incredibly impressed if you can do one on a character that never comes back.
Day Eight: Age of Youth Love-fest/Happy International Women’s Day
News about Season Two dropped and even though the tag is still active, it could be a little bit more active. Tell me about your favourite girl (it can be all of them), favourite scene, favourite prop, favourite line, draw parallels between Park Yun Sun’s previous work and Age of Youth! Do it all.
As always should you not like the categories, there are always
2015 + 2016 prompts, although it would please me if you could stick to these ones.
Please tag your posts#kdramawomensweek and/or @ us so they are easier to find, admire and reblog.
Someone explain to me how the hell underground didn’t score any nominations for the Emmys 2016. Btw the only explanation I’m accepting is that it aired after the period of time considered, everything else is bullshit.
ROSE: I’m not going. ZACH: Rose, there’s space for you. ROSE: No, I’m going to wait for the Doctor. Just like he waited for me. ZACH: I’m sorry, but he’s dead. ROSE: You don’t know him. ‘Cause he’s not. I’m telling you, he’s not. And even if he was, how could I leave him all on his own, all the way down there? No, I’m going to stay.
