Backhugs and schoolgirl crushes on Strong Woman Do Bong-soon
Someone’s getting handsy. I didn’t think Park Hyung-shik (Hwarang) would be training tiny Hulk Park Bo-young (Oh My Ghostess) when she’s the one hired to be his muscle, but apparently he’ll be teaching her to control her massive strength and harness it into self-defense moves (better to protect him with, I’m sure). Though judging from the latest teaser, she’s not going to need much coaching to wrestle him to the ground and turn him into a human pretzel.
Park Bo-young stars in the new rom-com as a woman born with superhuman strength, who harbors a secret crush on her childhood friend Ji-soo (Fantastic), a rookie detective. He has no idea that she’s liked him all these years, and she’s very careful to hide her strength around him too, so he has no idea that she can crush things with just a slight touch. Chaebol CEO Park Hyung-shik, on the other hand, will put her strength to good use when he hires her as his bodyguard, to protect him against a dangerous unknown threat.
At the same time, when a serial kidnapper starts taking women off the streets, Park Bo-young becomes a key witness in the case, and Ji-soo runs to his friend’s side to become her bodyguard. So then he guards her while she guards Park Hyung-shik, and they’re forced to move into one house together for safety reasons (it’s for safety!). The love triangle will be further complicated when Ji-soo misreads Park Hyung-shik’s flirty ways as a sign that he has a crush on him, hee.
In the latest teaser, Kim Won-hae (Chief Kim, Hwarang) and Kim Min-gyo (SNL Korea) return to do another song parody, this time for Fly Superboard with Do Bong-soon as the heroine who keeps the riffraff in line in her neighborhood. We also get an introduction to the heroine’s family in a set of stills: Mom Shim Hye-jin (Kill Me, Heal Me) is a former weightlifter and the head of their household. The strong woman gene gets passed down through the women in their family, and though Mom is no longer crazy strong, she still wields all the power, and will fixate on trying to marry her daughter off to Park Hyung-shik.
Dad Yoo Jae-myung (currently playing Park Hyung-shik’s adorable bodyguard in Hwarang) is a former wrestler and a bit of a sad sack who just tries to keep Mom happy. He’ll have a sweet relationship with his daughter that makes them seem more like friends than father-daughter. And Ahn Woo-yeon (who played Dae-gu in Jealousy Incarnate) is the heroine’s twin brother, who got all the brains while she got all the brawn. He’s a first-year resident doctor and a sweet, dependable guy who’s more like an oppa to his big sister. So basically they’re all going to be adorable? I think I can deal with that.
