Script Reading and First Teaser for Strong Woman Do Bong Soon with Park Bo Young, Park Hyung Sik, and Ji Soo

It’s an all-around strong production team and cast for upcoming cable network jTBC drama Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, one that bodes well for the network delivering something bright and funny rather than it’s usual serious fare. Starring Park Hyung Sik and Park Bo Young, perpetual second male lead and scene-stealer in the right role Ji Soo adds a strong third wheel option to the proceedings. I love all three and the thought of teeny tiny Park Bo Young as a woman with super strength who becomes a bodyguard and then love interest to spoiled Park Hyung Sik’s second generation chaebol sounds super entertaining. Directing is PD Lee who early in his career did a slew of beautifully filmed K-dramas like The Snow Queen, I’m Sorry I Love You, Sangdoo Let’s Go to School, and Winter Sonata, and more recently directed Ms Temper and Nam Jung Gi for jTBC. Writing the screenplay is also a jTBC veteran writer Baek who did My Love Eun Dong and this year also wrote the script for Woman of Dignity with Kim Hae Sun and Kim Sun Ah. Strong Woman Do Bong Soon premieres in February after Solomon’s Perjury. Continue reading
