'Wonder Woman', the first female superhero, is still used as a nickname for women who have powerful power and ability. Despite Wonder Woman's appearance, for a long time in various contexts, women were helped by men only because they are romantically involved with them, or even if they had special abilities, they only served as assistants. The proportion of women seen as heroes is now changing. Recently, more and more women have appeared as main characters, showing woman power. There are fewer women who fall in love with the prince on a white horse. Female heroes who are independent, and even strong inside, give courage to us.
At some age, love and protection are really needed, but not everyone gets it. -Eunyoung
<The School Nurse Ahn Eunyoung (2015)>
Ahn Eunyoung, a high school nurse, is not an ordinary school nurse. Her handbag always contains a BB gun and a funnel-type toy knife in rainbow colors. It's because she has the ability to see things that are invisible and fight them. And then there is Hong Inpyo, a teacher of Chinese characters who injured one leg while riding his motorcycle to school. One day, Eunyoung removes a thorn from the neck of a student named Seungkwon. To encourage Seungkwon to go to the hospital, she meets Inpyo, Seungkwon's homeroom teacher, and is surprised by the huge energy field protecting Inpyo. To find out the source of the thorn, Eunyoung goes to the school's basement. Inpyo goes looking for Seungkwon and goes down to the basement after seeing the open door. The two look around the basement and find a flat stone. When Inpyo overturns the stone, the basement shakes greatly and all the students in the hallway collapse and suddenly go up to the roof. Eunyoung follows to solve the chaos and finds Seungkwon, who has lost his mind, climbing up the rooftop barbed wire. Eunyoung grabs her BB gun and attacks a creature looking like something between a fish and a frog. However, the creature was so large that Eunyoung alone could not defeat it. Then, Inpyo comes to the roof. Will Inpyo be the key to fighting the creature?
