Strong Woman Do Bong-soon becomes our very own neighborhood superhero
Already I have a good feeling about the upcoming JTBC rom-com Strong Woman Do Bong-soon — hopefully, it’ll satisfy my sweet tooth cravings! The latest teasers show off Do Bong-soon’s incredibly awesome strength, as she uses her powers for good. I can’t wait to see Park Hyung-shik (Hwarang) and Park Bo-young (Oh My Ghostess) fall in love, especially after these Elle photo shoot pictures were released. They look absolutely adorable together, and my oh my, doesn’t Park Hyung-shik’s smoldering gaze make your heart flutter?
In her highly anticipated new drama, Park Bo-young stars as the petite protagonist who was born with unexpectedly immense strength. Park Hyung-shik is a weirdo chaebol CEO who comes under her protection when he seeks her out to become his bodyguard, and Ji-soo (Fantastic) makes up the third leg of the love triangle, a righteous individual with strong moral principles.
Styled after the theme song of 1970s popular children’s TV show Astroganger (Korean Title: Jjang-Ga), the music for this recently released teaser was sung by comedic actors Kim Won-hae (Hwarang) and Kim Min-gyo (You Are the Only One), and the overall effect is laugh-out-loud hilarious.
Late one rainy night, in the Do-bong neighborhood of Do-bong City, a scream is heard, and immediately Do Bong-soon drops her umbrella and rushes to save the day. The anime-esque teaser features Do Bong-soon as an everyday superwoman who can’t stand injustice and fights on behalf of the weak.
When she witnesses a subway groper, comic fire shoots out of her eyes. Walls break when she brings a fist to them, and iron bars bend at her touch. Whenever she sees crime happen in her town, she uses her natural Hulk-like strength to beat up the bad guys and defend the helpless citizens.
In another promo clip, Park Bo-young carries a mountain of gift-wrapped presents, and they fly everywhere when she accidentally bumps into Park Hyung-shik. For a moment, he’s worried when she’s been buried under all the presents and looks around anxiously, but she’s right in front of him. With a determined smile and raised arms, she leans in for a hug, but he disappears into thin air. She pouts, disappointed, but then he pops up right beside her, and embraces her in a back hug.
Awww, so cute — I need this in my life ASAP but alas, it’s an entire month away… Strong Woman Do Bong-soon will air starting February 24 on Fridays and Saturdays.
