Moments that Get You in the Feels

Pardon the slightly cliche title for this post, but it is actually quite fitting.  I realize that in my last post I said I’d do a review of Rich Man Poor Woman, but I’ve decided to put that off at present.  Why, you ask me?  Well, for the simple reason that this morning, I finished watching Answer Me 1997 (also known as Reply 1997).  I briefly discussed that drama in my last post as well, but after finishing it, I  need to discuss it and something its perfection made me start thinking about.

Your Favorite Female Third Wheel!

Ok, so to be completely honest, I’m a little stuck on this one.  I have one or two characters in mind, but overwhelmingly I find female third wheels to be annoying, ridiculous creatures who do nothing but dumb down the narrative of the drama.  I don’t know why male third wheels are written as depressing heart throbs whereas the girls are portrayed as backstabbing freaks with no conscience, but for some reason, a huge majority of female third wheels are borderline evil psychopaths or completely one dimensional with no personality whatsoever.  Look at Sprout, for example.  I enjoy the love story, love the third wheel boy (ok, let’s be honest, they’re the OTP), but I friggin hate the third wheel girl.  Honestly half the time I watch the drama I’m imagining throwing darts at her forehead, and if I wasn’t so concerned about the screen of my laptop, I might actually be trying to inflict damage to her 2D face.

I HATE her. Not the actress, the character (fanboys please don’t kill me I’m sure she’s lovely in real life). I would be so happy if her character “accidentally fell” (*cough* I didn’t push her I swear *cough*) off a cliff

Therefore, I will write this post with the small amount of female third wheels I like, as well as including a few secondary females who weren’t in awkward love triangles but still deserve appreciation, because they were awesome and lovely, and did not try to destroy any of my favorite OTPs.
