Korean dramas may be famous for their catchy storylines and handsome characters, but there is no doubt that heroines also play a big part in terms of popularity and content.
This year's drama lineup boasts various female characters, following last year's femme fatale Mi-shil from "Queen Seon-deok" and secret agent Choi Seung-hee from "IRIS".
Lee Da-hae stars in the new drama "The Slave Hunters" as the captive Eon-nyeun who receives a new name, Kim Hye-won, upon rising in social status to the high-rank of "yangban". Actress Han Go-eun, 34, will journey back in time as the partner of Choi Guk-sun, a member of one of the noblest families in Korea, played by Cha In-pyo, in the drama "The Reputable Family".
Meanwhile, model-turned-actress Bae Doona will appear as a high school English teacher in the new soap "Master of Study" airing every Mondays and Tuesdays at 9:55 p.m. Bae, one of the most successful model-turned-actresses in the business, recently won an award for best actress for her role in the Japanese film "Air Doll" at the Japan Academy Awards last year. Meanwhile, fellow actress Kong Hyo-jin returns as an aspiring chef, Seo Yoo-gyeong, in the television series "Pasta".
Last but not least, Han Hye-jin appears in the medical drama "Jejoongwon" on SBS. The actress shot to stardom thanks to the period drama "Jumong' (MBC), but failed to garner fans with more modern works, including her most recent television series "Terroir" (SBS).
