“There is a reason why I like Baekhyun so much! At SM, there are a lot of pretty juniors… but Baekhyun never fails to contact me. He will always ask “Hyung, where are you? What are you doing?”. In our company there isn’t anybody like him! We became closer when I came back from the army, and felt like I was new to the company again, I felt different when meeting and greating people, but Baekhyun did the first move to talk to me about games, he said “Hyung, I play LOL too”. I remember till today. This is how we became closer and I hope our relationship will last long!“ // 161223 SM Super Celeb League
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.
for the record, every single cast member’s acting has been significantly better in season 12, too. prior to now, the characters have been morphing into bigger and more extreme caricatures of themselves. rcg wrote a larger proportion of the episodes this season and it’s clear they’re opting to change the direction of the show and i really like the idea that season 12 is the turning point from the theme of stagnation and “characters that will always disappoint you” to one that supports actual growth……!!!!
