SBS Drama My Strange Hero with Yoo Seung Ho and Jo Boa Holds Press Conference

A bit lost in the recent high profile K-drama premieres is a chance for SBS to win the time slot of Mon-Tues with second chance drama My Strange Hero (Bok Soo is Back). Right now it’s not a very competitive time slot and previous drama Where Stars Land (Fox Star Bride) led the ratings despite a narratively that reportedly went to pot at the end.

Yoo Seung Ho and Jo Boa are the leads with Kwak Dong Yeon as the second male lead, a solid trio with lots of charisma and acting chops.
