I am so happy with this new Miss A song/video.
The title translates to “I Can Live Well Without a Man” and the chorus repeats “I don’t need a man.”
It may be a simple message, but it’s one that I feel is not prominent enough, especially in a country where women are still expected to marry as soon as possible and, often, give up on careers to raise a family. According to a Wall Street Journal article this spring, only 50 percent of South Korea’s women are in the workforce, one of the lowest rates among industrialized nations.
Anyway, I’m just glad to hear such a positive message from such a famous group.
