The Awesomeness of the Female Characters in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

I realize that this is a departure from my usual *Asian male centric* posts, but I couldn’t help it, sorry guys!  I promise to come at you with more of my normal posts soon!

Can we just pause and appreciate how awesome the female characters in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind are?  I realize this is an old film, and many points like this may have been brought up already, but as I’m now rewatching (for probably about the 60th time) this film, I just have to talk about the female characters and how awesome they are.  In a shockingly large amount of romantic films, comedic films, hell films in general, women are portrayed as one dimensional, love-struck idiots who are ‘completed’ by their male counterparts and have nothing better to do than search for love.  This film is an ‘indie’ romance film.  Obviously, romance is centric.  However, depicted within this romance, there is a depth to the female characters that is shockingly unique compared to most films nowadays.

First, GTO 2012 (a.k.a. Great Teacher Onizuka 2012).

Asians and their inexplicable ability to pull off any fashion

So this is going to be a short but *hopefully* sweet post.  Today I was organizing my images folder (it’s a form of procrastination, and it makes me happy to re-look at pics of shirtless men… don’t judge me) and I stumbled on this great picture from Queen Inhyun’s Man, of Ji Hyun Woo (playing Kim Boong Do).
