Episode 7 Quick Thoughts
Strong Woman Do Bong Soon is raking ratings because we get to taste a simple storyline with 2-3 major and side conflicts. The uncomplicated and yet lively tone along with the endearing characters drives us the followers a moment of weeklong sadness while waiting for the next episodes to air. We closed one side conflict this episode as Min Hyuk learns the covert grudge his favorite brother has with him. He started rearing Bong Soon to optimize her abilities while making us melt with the almost kisses and furtive love he is already manifesting towards her, but Gook Doo is also in the brink of finally admitting the love that has been there all along. sigh About the psycho conflict, it is inevitably going to the direction where he would want to collect Bong Soon to wrap up the story. I am curious how Bong Soon’s men will rise to the occasion whe she will be hindered to protect herself.
