Many K-dramas have characters who are the perfect girl! Sometimes k-drama writers incorporate common themes that give birth to a dream person in everyone’s mind. Looks don’t matter when you have the right personality traits that everyone loves. Here is a look at some of the traits that can be seen in a K-drama girl.
Sacrifice for relationships
The K-drama girl has the right balance in her life. Not only does she value her romantic relationship, but she also finds her friendships priceless. K-drama girls have at least one or two friendships that have lasted for decades. Her ability to maintain long-lasting friendships is what makes her a gem.
In “Miracle”, Lee So Rin (Kang Min Ah) loves his best friends! Lee So Rin is a K-pop fan who meets her idol twice in her life, and despite the fact that his presence complicates her love life, So Rin and her friends live together at work and in their free time. In her opinion, romantic relationships will never break the unbreakable bond they formed at school.

Determination to succeed
Failure never breaks a K-drama girl. Career becomes the focal point and K-drama main characters often want to be as successful as their lovers. If they cannot achieve the ultimate success, they do everything to make their other half stand out in the professions of their choice.
“Today’s Webtoon” draws viewers’ attention to the character On Ma Eum (Kim Sejeong) who wants to save his webtoon division. The drama follows the lives of webtoon artists and the team that professionally produces their work. At Ma Eum, she works long hours, genuinely cares about the lives and work of her webtoon artists, and spends time with co-worker and potential love interest Goo Jun Young (Nam Yoon Su), who appreciates her for her passion for her work. On Ma Eum deserves an award!

Best friends forever
Being best friends in a relationship is one trait that also makes a great K-drama girlfriend! She is the most reliable person for the one she loves. Through it all, her significant other knows she’s their greatest cheerleader, and they can be their true selves around them.
Although judoka Lee Eun Yeong (Yang Seo Woo) in “Today’s Webtoon” is not the female lead, she is On Ma Eum’s best friend imaginable. Judo connects them, and Lee Eun Yeong is her number one confidante. There is no judgment from her and she listens and supports On Ma Eum in her decisions. Lee Eun Yeong has the right skills to be a loving K-drama girl for everyone.
He takes the initiative
Anyone interested in dating someone should take the initiative and ask them out on a date. Women in typical K-dramas often didn’t approach guys first, but in recent years it’s been an empowering move that viewers can’t help but love. The perfect K-drama girl knows who she’s interested in, approaches them first, and never plays mind games. Honesty in love is absolutely the best!
In “School 2021”, Kang Seo Young (Hwang Bo Reum Byeol) experiences love at first sight when he sees Jung Young Joo (Chu Young Woo). “School 2021” tells the story of the life and evolution of vocational high school students, and the series is the latest chapter in the popular “School” series. Kang Seo Young bravely asks Jung Young Joo for a date and accepts the result, and the way he does it will amaze you. They start with a contractual relationship, but her feelings are still real!

A girl in distress
Sometimes a K-drama girl gives her lover a chance to save them. Bullying, surroundings and love rivals threaten the safety of a K-drama girl, and her loved one must make her current situation as pleasant as possible. Sometimes it’s nice to have a k-drama knight!
Go Dok Mi (Park Shin Hye) is the perfect example of a damsel in distress in Flower Boy Next Door, which tells the story of a single woman living in an apartment complex full of handsome neighbors. A freelance editor becomes afraid of people and open spaces, but video game designer Enrique Keum (Yoon Shi Yoon) discovers her and helps her out of the shadows. He lives across the street from him so it’s easy to commute to work to start a real friendship and Enrique Keum is definitely a sweet male protagonist!
