K-netizens Ponder: If You Can Be an Iconic Female K-drama Character for One Month, Whose Life Would You Want to Live?

Oh this is a good one, and I totally know who would be just a blast to live as for one month! K-netizens have circulated a post that shares ten famous/popular/well-known K-drama female lead characters and asked “which female lead’s life would you want to life if its just for one month?” I love the one month qualified because it’s basically the best part of the character’s life before all the conflict, challenges, and tears/fears come into play. We get the good only, yay! In that case it’s totally Cheon Song Yi from You From Another Star. Top Hallyu actress life, swank apartment, lives across from cold, smexy Professor Do Min Joon, and of course the one month perfect life cuts off before she has to survive murder and live the rest of her life with an alien boyfriend who pops back to Earth unpredictably. Another I will consider is a month as Geum Jan Di in Boys Before Flowers, because hello rich high school, F4! and having a devoted tsundere boyfriend in Gu Jun Pyo to liven up a hardworking student life. Being Deok Sun in Answer Me 1988 is too ordinary even if she has both Jung Hwan and Taek around. Crash Landing on You as Yoon Se Ri is only fun if its the Seoul portion and not the North Korea time. Check out some options below and of course share any additional fun female lead life for one month character you would love to inhabit with no strings attached.
