We know you're in dire need of a new Korean drama to obsess about. If you need something lighter after watching the latest episodes of Tomorrow with You, then you've come to right place because we highly recommend JTBC's Strong Woman Do Bong Soon!

Obviously, we're a bit crazy about it and everyone seems to feel the same way, too. We really can't blame them because there are a ton of good reasons to love the show.

  1. Do Bong Soon is a strong woman.

And we love strong women! Instead of being the damsel in distress, Park Bo Young (Oh My Ghostess) plays the role of Bong Soon, a petite woman who was blessed with so much strength which she uses for good. She's hired as a bodyguard by weird CEO Min Hyuk (played by Hwarang's Park Hyung Sik, OMG!). How powerful!

  1. Ji Soo is here, too!

If you loved him as Soo Cheol on Doctor Crush or as Bok Joo's work friend on Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, you'll surely love seeing him more as a handsome police officer (hee hee!) on Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. Plus, he shares an incredible bromance with Bo Young, too. Aww!

  1. This K-Drama has everything!

It has romance, action, mystery, family drama, and even fantasy, too! We love how they were able to let each part of the story shine without it being all over the place. It's heartwarming and heart-stopping. But the best part is that at the end of the day, it's our female lead who saves the day. You go, Bong Soon!


  1. Bong Soon may be tough, but she's such a cutie, too.

Most of us think that girls are either made of sugar or spice when in reality, we're all made of both. Bong Soon may be tough and strong, but she's too cute for words, too. Not only physically, but in the way she carries herself. If you ask us, she sets a great example for all of us. That's why she won our hearts from the very start.

We won't spoil anything for you, but we're leaving you with a promise that this K-Drama is going to brighten your day. Hee hee! Here's hoping we're not yet so late for the party! ♥

You can stream Strong Woman Do Bong Soon via TRIBE.
