Currently one of the most talked-about K-dramas, tvN’s “Marry My Husband” continues to gain viewers’ attention as the webtoon-based series delivers an interesting storyline.

Headlined by Park Min Young, she plays the role of the doting wife and true friend but was betrayed by people around her while at the lowest point of her life.

In the story, Song Ha Yoon takes on the role of Jung Soo Min, a manipulator who betrayed Ji Won by having an affair with her husband, Park Min Hwan (Lee Yi Kyung).

Interestingly, netizens are bringing back Jo Woo Ri’s character in the 2018 webtoon-based series “My ID Is Gangnam Beauty.” Fans are comparing the two K-drama characters in a debate about who is the better “pick me girl.”

‘Pick Me’ Girl Battle: Jung Soo Min Vs. Hyun Soo Ah

In Gen Z and millennial slang, “pick me girl” means a woman who obsessively desires approval and validation from men. Unfortunately, there are times when people look for ways to put other girls down. That is to make themselves look better.

To spot this, “pick me girls” often gossip or publicly shame other women.

Another warning sign that a person is a “pick me girl” is when she becomes overly obsessed with the interest of her male target for the sake of attracting attention.

The definition perfectly describes Hyun Soo Ah of “My ID Is Gangnam Beauty” and Jung Soo Min of “Marry My Husband,” but netizens have a different take on them.

In a TikTok post, netizens debated who is the perfect “pick me girl” between the two characters.

Portraying the main antagonist, Hyun Soo Ah, depicts a realistic character of a campus queen bee who always wants all the attention towards her. She may seem nice to everyone, but it was all just a show to make people around her love her.

However, deep inside, Soo Ah is someone who is full of jealousy and a girl with low self-esteem.

In the story, she always looks at her batchmate, Kang Mi Rae, played by Im Soo Hyan, as her competitor. Soo Ah thinks that one way to beat her is by making Do Kyung Seok, the most handsome and popular student in school, fall for her.

On the other hand, “Marry My Husband” has Jung Soo Min.

She envies her best friend, Kang Ji Won, who is loved by the people around her. From having a loving father to having a boyfriend, Soo Min feels like Ji Won has everything in life. This is where she feels jealousy for her and secretly plots to ruin her life.

She spreads fake gossip around the campus to make Kang Ji Won the target of bullies. In addition, she seduces Kang Ji Won’s longtime boyfriend, Park Min Hwan, and even plots to take her insurance claims.

Song Ha Yoon’s role in “Marry My Husband” is dubbed one of the most hated villains so far in K-drama.

On the other hand, it only shows that these actresses are so good that they are able to garner attention because of their portrayal.

So, who do you think is the better “pick me”?
