All right, maknae here. Please take care of me and don’t mock me too ruthlessly for the following confession: Once upon a time, I wrote an academic paper defending Bella Swan from Twilight as a strong character. True story! And I still stand by that paper because I think that the character of the distressed damsel has gotten picked on long enough.
Please note, I said distressed damsel, NOT damsel in distress. There’s a huge difference, one that I’d like to demonstrate using Ha Won and Hye Ji from Cinderella and Four Knights.
