Kdramawomensweek Day#5 Femininity and Her

King2hearts will always hold a special place in my drama heart. It is a story of the transformative growth of a king, and the epicenter of that change is occupied by Kim Hang Ah, a north Korean soldier who becomes his queen.

Sigh….It’s a beautiful love story!

I worshipped her character in this drama. She completely owned her prowess as a (badass) soldier saving her men left and right, yet was as invested in being a good daughter to her father. For me she embodies all aspects of femininity.

I chose this scene because it gives Lee Jae-ha an inkling of what is to come. Hang-ah is all courage, unafraid to own her feelings, completely throwing him and his plans to the side.

Hemos acordado no hablar de amor a partir de hoy. Hemos decido beber alcohol todos los días. A partir de ahora, hablaremos de cosas dignas. Política, economía, filosofía, las religiones, las guerras. Cosas importantes como esas que dejamos de lado por estar hablando de problemas simples que nos vuelven más débiles. ¡Bebamos! A partir de hoy, no hay tal cosa como el amor o algo que se le parezca. Así es como tendremos vidas dignas y sin sufrimiento.

This is my crowning achievement. It is the list of Korean dramas that I have watched or am watching. The VVIP list is in order of my love for them while the other lists are in no particular order. These dramas are all Korean unless noted otherwise, and the shows with X I have watched more than once. Of course this is a work in progress, so please stayed tuned. My list of things I’m currently watching is basically shows that I have started and want to finish. I also listed the dramas I want to watch in the future at the bottom.
