Park Hyung-shik arm-wrestles Strong Woman Do Bong-soon in new teaser
It’s like they’re trying to raise my expectations so high that I’ll have no choice but to love the drama. Strong Woman Do Bong-soon has just released its latest promo teaser and a few more still cuts. The adorkable-looking rom-com drama is about the love triangle between the title character who is a petite lady with immense strength, a quirky oddball CEO, and a righteous police officer.
Park Bo-young (Oh My Ghostess) plays the leading lady whose touch can crumble objects and bend metal. She’s a sunny character with an appetite that’s almost as great as her strength, whose first love is her elementary school friend, played by Ji-soo (Fantastic). Her greatest aspiration is to become his ideal woman, a dainty flower-type person.
The descendant of a family endowed with superhuman strength, Do Bong-soon is part of the latest generation of women who have inherited this X chromosome-linked gene. Her ancestors were renowned for their amazing fighting prowess during the Imjin War, and songs are still sung about Park Gae-boon, the original girl-crush heroine. There’s just one drawback: If she uses her powers for personal gain or for evil, they disappear and she’ll suffer from an unlucky jinx in karmic punishment.
Despite her not-so-stellar resume, she keeps her positive attitude while working multiple part-time jobs, dreaming of a day her fateful love will come true. Due to an unforeseen incident, she reunites with her childhood crush who has now become a policeman. She also meets another man, played by Park Hyung-shik (Hwarang), who is a devilishly charming game company CEO, and somehow becomes his personal bodyguard.
In the newest still cuts, Kim Won-hae, who’s currently starring in hit office comedy Chief Kim, lays on the floor astounded by Do Bong-soon’s strength after having his face slapped by her tiny hand. Park Bo-young shows that no one should mess with Do Bong-soon when she flattens Kim Won-hae to the ground after he attempts to take her cell phone.
The teaser shows Do Bong-soon telling Park Hyung-shik not to be too disappointed if he loses to a girl, as they engage in an arm-wrestling match. He tries with all his might to no effect — she doesn’t even budge. Then in the blink of an eye, his arm is on the table, and he stares in disbelief while she blinks up at him innocently. A montage of shots show Do Bong-soon defending the weak and the helpless with her great strength. At the end, there’s a lovely sunset scene of Park Hyung-shik and Do Bong-soon gazing into each other’s eyes. The chemistry between them is so palpable that I can’t wait to watch this romance unfold.
JTBC’s new Friday-Saturday drama Strong Woman Do Bong-soon starts airing on February 24.
