Merry Christmas from Strong Woman Do Bong-soon to you
Details and promos for JTBC’s upcoming drama Strong Woman Do Bong-soon have been rather scarce, but a short and sweet promo has been released just in time for the holidays featuring the main couple: Park Bo-young (Oh My Ghostess) and Park Hyung-shik (Hwarang).
Strong Woman Do Bong-soon is a fully pre-produced drama written by Baek Mi-kyung (Beloved Eun-dong) and directed by PD Lee Hyung-min (Ms. Temper and Nam Jung-ki). Park Bo-young takes on the titular role and plays a woman born with Herculean strength; anything she touches with too much force crumbles in her hands. Park Hyung-shik plays her love interest, Ahn Min-hyuk, an extraordinary second-generation chaebol with crazy tendencies, and a rollicking romance sparks between the two eccentric characters.
Ji-soo (Fantastic) plays Gook Du, the guy who’s harbored a one-sided crush on the heroine, and in her first drama role, gag woman Park Bo-mi will play Na Kyung-shim, the trusty childhood friend who’s aware of the heroine’s secret and dutifully helps her out.
The festive promo teaser shows Park Hyung-shik glued to his phone, not looking where he’s walking. Park Bo-young spots him and surprises him with glowing silver baubles floating in the air, but he just walks past them, only mildly interested, until she yanks him back with her strong arms and makes him wish us a merry Christmas, heh.
This promo probably has little to do with the actual story, but who would object to an adorable holiday greeting from Park Bo-young? The idea of her as a tiny, mighty heroine sounds pitch perfect and delightful, and though I wish Ji-soo were playing the male lead instead, she and Park Hyung-shik do make a cute pair.
Strong Woman Do Bong-soon will premiere on JTBC sometime in February 2017.
