So you mean a woman can be strong, get into sports, have two successful careers she can juggle without any problem and still be very womanly and cute and attractive? In Barbie-Land (what certain people would like it to be) Korea? Yep. I love this woman. I think this whole "pure" image from celebrities is getting tiring and it's highly unrealistic. Women are not pretty kittens or butterflies. You can be many things and still be a nice person or someone to look up to. An overly coy exterior does not make a person. I love how she also uses that in her roles. Much like her public persona, they seem like the most adorable women ever, and they are, but they'll give you bruises if they need to.

Cannot overstate how much I admire her. An actress, a popular one at that, decides she wants to try something else and works very hard to achieve it.
