“Fated love is seeing your happy face in the eyes of the person you love”
And that’s how you tie up the loose ends, execute a heartfelt closure for a love that missed its timing, and celebrate how true love happens when you are patient enough to wait. If you are on a k-drama slump, this will hook you up back to oppa-land. The fast paced quirky rom-com promised an addictive run and delivered it in flying colors with a riveting thriller plot incorporated on the side.
It was a whimsical love ride with thugs, a psycho, a police, a gaming company CEO and a woman with extraordinary strength. The labyrinth was a whirlwind of cuteness and mirth and everything a fan would ask k-drama gods for a gift. Consistently endearing with amusing surprises along the way, “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” is a steady delightful drama that deserve all the raves and hype it has been getting from k-drama followers.
I was always in a trampoline of stimulating emotions while watching Do Bong Soon’s story. From thrills to laughter to poignant bliss to heart flutters and to sweet tears, I already placed it in my all-time k-drama favorites. What made this drama so endearing was the perfect blend of the engaging love couple/triangle chemistry, the warranted humor even the slapstick travesty, and lastly, the charming tale of the heroine who bloomed to become a woman who acknowledged her strengths and frailties. Hers is a story that any girl can relate to. From those love confusions, career-where-I-am-going-questions and finding her worth as a person. “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” might have been coated in chocolates and marshmallows, but it gave a tangible encouragement especially to women watching it.
Cast, Storyline and Conflict
I usually pick k-dramas to watch based on the history of the production team. There are a few that I chose because of the actors like how I signed up for “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon”. This is my no-reservations-i-just-love-parkhyungsik-so-im-going-to-watch-it drama. So, I was surprised that the premiere week gave me more than I expected and steadily raised my anticipation all throughout my devoted trailing. The energetic pacing, the charming CEO zooming on a hoverboard, the small framed heroine with herculean strength and the uptight hot detective, are some of the reasons why this drama has charmed and chained me in so many ways. Because of its intriguing plot, knee-weakening sweet moments and cute bickering, Bong-Bong and Min-Min’s love ride has been so invigorating.
We sure had a second lead syndrome with Ji Soo playing Bong Soon’s long running one-sided love, and it was a relief that the transition given to us so we can move on along with Bong Soon was well enacted in the narrative. Bong Soon’s one sided love to Gook Doo was cute as hell. Gook Doo’s line of how he was so overwhelmed with his emotions towards her that he missed knowing that she felt the same way made me sob and sigh as his pain attacked me in the finale episode. I liked how that scene properly sent off the alternate love pairing with a breathtaking moment which you rarely see from past rom-coms once they hit the culmination of the main love line. Usually the second lead will be disregarded like he never helped in highlighting the main love tale. The right love at the wrong time story of Bong Soon and Gook Doo was established well propelling an exciting race for the lead girl’s hand and perturbing heartache for the second lead that we also want to keep in our heart. The love triangle premise broke my heart when it has not even happened yet, so when we got to the steamier love plot it made everyone happy and confused at the same time since we have an equally adorable second lead.
My shameless noona romance with Park Hyung Sik was rewarded well, and I’m so happy for him landing a drama that was loved so much by the viewers. I love how our hero has figured out all the answers to his illustrious life and how he lives to his gaming company owner persona and treating every life setback as a challenge to overcome for him. Hyung Sik was awesome in projecting the same bread and butter rom-com element of bickering with the lead girl that seeing him caught in a love bug was quite a delightful watch. What’s amusing about his character was how he diverted from the lead man prototype by being soft-hearted and crazy over his girl dummy. It’s hard to put it in words but his interaction with Bong Soon cracked me up a lot because we got to see him hilarious without the love connection, so when we hit the romantic rope, he was a bundle of gaiety since he was drawn to rationalizing everything about their relationship and literally translating it to how his weird mind perceived it. Park Bo Young who has always been known for her brilliant portrayals owned her Bong Soon character by giving it a unique resonance even when her image was sketched with imperfections. And her stunning connection with Park Hyung Sik along with the ardent gazes and heart-stopping kisses has made me hug my pillow so hard while squealing like a highschool girl watching her crush shoot a basketball from afar.
The love progression turned so effective in inducing laughter fits because Min Hyuk’s one-of-a-kind hubris was always at lost, as his lady love knows what buttons to push to make him surrender at her fingertips. The dynamics of Bong Soon and Min Hyuk’s reversal of roles are clearly defined thanks to Park Couple’s committed portrayals. As a cushion for my weak heart, I did not give my all in trusting the production team, but I have a big faith to the awesome actors playing in the tv stage.
15 years of Korean drama following will give you a power to predict stories from its onset and a liability to easily give up on dramas showing no kick off promise. In a way, “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” resurrected my old fan girl spirit, and made me reminisce when I was at that stage of being so forbearing with any kind of drama given to me regardless if it was good or bad. I found myself watching the drama without subtitles and scavenging YouTube for any drama related uploads available to kill time while waiting for the next episode to happen.
I only have a minimal complaint on the narrative. There were scenes I wish did not linger more or were used as fillers like the excessive thug frames. But overall, I am mostly satisfied with its simple premise and gleeful romantic realization. On this note, the only 1% pout I will give the story was how the writer should have capitalized more to Bong Soon’s power’s back story anecdotes or how Min Hyuk established his company, or any love couple’s mushy moment, than placing those gangster scenes that I am already not interested about after the 1 vs 30 encounter with Bong Soon. Bong-Bong and Min-Min’s story gave us a hybrid of fantasy and reality characters that helped in making the vibrancy of the story conspicuous. I like how our creepy conflict functioned as a neutralizer to the witty love interlude and the satire comedy we were high on for the most part of the story. We had a solid love triangle, a vivacious main cast, a cute storyline, and an exciting pacing that encouraged my usually swaying heart into 8 weeks of faithfulness in this series. The uncomplicated resolution of the side conflicts and the gripping chase of the focal problem were achieved reasonably without giving us the run arounds. Strong Woman Do Bong Soon sprinted an amazing spectacle with the stunning and lively depictions and comical storytelling. It was technically bare, but the simplicity and the fascinating cast synergy accompanied by the palpable humor kept the viewers warmly sedated and feeling good after watching it. While providing the gist of the background of our characters, “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” presented the love premise and conflict in a smooth way. The ratings justified everything that we got from the narrative. Sometimes there are stories like Bong Soon’s that we all need a taste of each week to relieve life complications and uncertainties.
“Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” marked everything required on a k-drama rom-com checklist. It was also the brightest and most cheerful bulb that opened K-Dramaland 2017. The thing about first quarter k-dramas is that you tend to forget it if another beautiful drama comes in like what happened with “Descendants of the Sun” and “Goblin”. Both are equally amazing but we remember Goblin more. Now I don’t think it would happen to me. There were two points I know for sure I will still do after the finale. That it will stay on my phone to function as my cheering up pill and that I will rewatch it again this year and the next years to come joining my resident drama rejuvenating playlist. That’s what I did not do with the top two dramas last year. The hype was high while it was airing but the rewatch value is not that strong. That’s the advantage of feel-good rom-coms, you see it again because it is easy to watch and will just make you smile and giddy-ish even if you have seen the heart fluttering moments a lot of times already.
2017 K-DramaLand is so far not as explosive and busy compared to 2016 KDrama Parade so you have ample time to dive in this exceptional and amusing love tale. I rave on dramas that deserve to be praised, and that’s the case for me with Bong Soon and Min Hyuk’s story. I’m sure you will enjoy it the same way I did.
“Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” highlights the tale of Do Bong Soon who inherited a superhuman strength that is passed on from her maternal ancestors. Her incredible strength cannot be used for personal interest though, as it would cause an inevitable misfortune for her. An incident involving saving a bus driver bullied by thugs made her crossed paths with Ahn Min Hyuk, a pompous CEO of a gaming company who offered her a job to become his bodyguard. Bong Soon agreed considering the huge amount of money tied up with the job offer. The strange working agreement opened a connection for them, but he must wait for her to end a long running one-sided love with her police friend – Gook Doo. Complications arose when a neighborhood psycho abducted women and ended up taking Bong Soon’s best friend – Kyung Shim. She could rescue Kyung Shim, but the psycho’s failure triggered an obsession to punish Bong Soon. Min Hyuk promised Bong Soon that she will be transferred to Strategy Development Team if she will do a great job protecting him as well as uncovering his secret stalker. She managed to unravel the culprit and soon after she revealed to him her secret power. The thugs who cannot move on from the humiliation they got from Bong Soon’s hands tricked her to going to a place where they staged a 30 vs 1 combat with her. She pulverized the gangsters but failed to punish the big boss when a hiding thug zoomed to attack her with a knife but Min Hyuk ran to take the hit for her. From there, Min Hyuk who has been interested with her from the start escalated to being officially smitten as he recognized the girl from his dreams who once saved his life was Bong Soon. Bong Soon’s heart who has harbored a secret adoration with Gook Doo soon realized how her heart already changed who it beats for. Bong Soon’s friend was taken by the psycho again and in the process of saving her, she lost her power. During her most vulnerable moment, Min Hyuk stayed by her side. When he asked her to love him back she finally admits how she also have him in her heart. The villain who was chased by Gook Doo and fell on a cliff survived the fall and went to plan another revenge game with Bong Soon and Min Hyuk. He disguised as a reporter to enter the office and drugged Bong Soon who regained consciousness and a ticking bomb attached to her. Min Hyuk finds his girlfriend at the rooftop through the tracker necklace he gave her but was unable to open the door that separated them. Bong Soon begged with all the love she had for Min Hyuk and the heavens opened to give back her power enabling her to throw the bomb for an amazing firework display. Bong Soon who wanted to catch the psycho with her own hands asked Min Hyuk and Gook Doo to help her and they managed to trap him in a steel cage which Bong Soon threw in his escaping motion. Bong Soon who has been working on a game successfully got the nod for the first game she developed and officially entered the Strategy Development Team she so wanted to join. But working to save and help the weak people was causing her attendance issues at work so she ended up being sent back to Min Hyuk’s office as an intern. Min Hyuk proposed marriage when all the ruckus was settled and just when he thought that it will be an ever after, they got a twin daughter who took after their mother.
We had a lot squeezed in for this adorable and gripping episode. Let’s cut the chase and go straight to the story.

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon Episode 13 – “Nevertheless”
Because I remained faithful to the end, I decided to ruminate and write my thoughts about Hwarang before I fall asleep.
Hwarang is definitely at par in terms of performance compared to fusion sageuk favorites due to its struggling plot momentum. I’m not supposed to say this, but the pretty boys were really the reason why I stayed calm on my seat. hahaha If not really for their impeccable chemistry and gang fights ala Malfoy’s Gang and Dumbledore’s army, I would have not stayed afloat.
2017 is the year when a lot of cute oppas will serve their military calling so I’m glad that Hyung Sik came to my life to save me from that biting agony of missing those boys in kdramaland. It took me four episodes to fall for him in Hwarang and I started rummaging on his previous dramas to watch what I missed. Boy that smoldering gaze just peered straight to my heart and has made me fall in love again and dwell on my self-proclaimed imaginary noona romance. He has this countenance that can outshine the main lead actor like what happened in High Society and even in Hwarang. Not that Park Seo Joon was bad as a main lead, but his character lack depth and journey that is necessary to receive approval from the audience. Individually the main Hwarang cast has their own charms but sometimes it falls weak in aligning their roles to the storyline. But we can say that the inconsistent narrative made it impossible for the cast to grow in their roles. One thing notable though is how as a whole and when they went bickering and struggling with their belated forced youth camp, their interaction was cute and engrossing to watch.
Had they not dwell on that the-king-must-be-hidden plot, the story would have scored some promise. But until the culmination, that conflict was not explained reasonably. I would be okay with a straight answer from Queen Ji So that she is having a chronic PMS causing her senseless greed for the crown. Sadly though I got a charge it to kdrama experience shoulder tap.
The Hwarang training was actually a wasted story arc that would have salvaged the series if again they did not stop halfway to do another thing. That was the case for Hwarang, the production team suffered extreme hyperactivity making them want to incorporate a lot of things all at the same time without establishing a viable impetus. So many things were introduced and were left somewhere without any intention of getting back to it because the PD was also surprised to wake up one day realizing that the finale week is nearing.
It was kinda weird how the strengths and weaknesses of “Hwarang” were the same. It has an engaging protagonists but lethargic villain showing. The plot was lively at one point and when you leave it to do a quick errand, a misplaced conflict was again thrown without any warning. I did not even get a chance to grieve properly on Han Sung’s death.
The romance and the lack of it are something I want to be credited to Ah Ro’s shift of character from being adorably feisty to a vulnerable trouble sponge always waiting to be rescued by her lead men. I have enjoyed Ban Ryu and Soo Jin’s love story more to be honest because they were both dorky and unsure of their romeo-and-juliet situation, but then they just went with the flow and kiss each other like how they wanted to be love. I was so happy that Ji Dwi did not get the lead girl because he deserves more like me. *giggles While the boys are endearing to watch on screen, the girl cast will leave you a stoic feeling as you try to figure why they matter in the chronicle.
Notching superbly those climactic cliff-hangers and seamlessly presented the consistent timeline transitions and convergence, this drama would have mocked all the time-traveling stories last year. Halfway through 2013, story, directing and editing wise, I found my kdrama to beat.
My Sherlock veins was immensely gratified that I paid less attention to the romantic side which in all fairness was also a satisfying bliss. It was a balanced fusion of a character and plot-driven tale where its incredulous premise was chronicled unembellished and not leaning to injecting inconceivable trajectories due to its supernatural setting.
It was the story of a man who obtained 9 incense sticks that functioned as a time-trekking machine which helped him leave clues to his past self in escaping his looming death in the future. His time warping brought him to events of 20 years ago and divulged pieces of information that his future self utilized to change the course of time in the past to protect the people he loved and his soon to be taken away life.
The incomprehensible plot paraded a stunning picture closed to perfection where I was set into constant debate with my thoughts, but Nine Times Travel was always emerging victorious when I’m deconstructing the path and curves on where it was heading.
Park Sun-woo, a broadcast journalist, went to Nepal to validate the news of his brother’s passing and to propose a short-stint marriage to a junior at work, Joo Young-min. He retrieved his deceased brother’s possessions and was drawn to the incense stick his brother was holding when he died.
Min-young was boggled at the sudden love offer and unbeknownst to her, Sun-woo was actually dying of brain tumor thus he wanted to live the remaining moments of his life with her.
On his news program, Sun-woo was posed to interview Choi Jin Cheol about his stem cell therapy research breakthrough. All was going well until the journalist threw unscripted allegations of the unethical procedures and casualties done for the research.
Min-young learned from Sun-woo’s doctor bestfriend Young-hoon about his diminishing days and was upset knowing that it was his motivation to marry her. Sun-woo finally uncovered the mystery of the incense sticks as time portal and was sent back to his room of 20 years ago. He got his old beeper back to the present time.
Sun-woo appeased Min-young’s angered heart with his sweet convincing and when he went again to Nepal to prove his deductions on the stick mojos which his brother was in search before his death, he acquired not just the 9 magical incense sticks but also Min-young’s heart.
Sun-woo discussed with Young-hoon the impossible power he just obtained and told him that he will be using it to honor what his brother wanted to have. So off he went to meet the woman his brother loved so much. He rescued her from a suicide attempt and gave her daughter Shi Ah his brother’s number for her to call to make her mother feel better. Jung-woo bound to his filial duty broke up with her but softened when he got the call and decided against his father’s will.
Sun-woo didn’t know that the change he made to happen will affect the present time as Min-young who was with him vanished and became his niece since his brother in the past time line married her mother Yoo-jin.
Sun-woo and Young-hoon faced the dilemma of the altered memories as the former has to accept that his girlfriend became her niece overnight and that she will also be soon engaged.
Jin-cheol hinted how he owed nothing to his family and that he never killed his father and to uncover the events of his father’s murder, he leapt through time and got the biggest surprise of his life.
Sun-woo woke up his younger self and ordered him to prevent their father’s imminent death. The younger Sun-woo was asked to phone aboji to make him come home, he agreed half-way but blurted an intrusion. Worried aboji left office to go home as younger-Sun-woo was knocked down accidentally by his future self. Before his 30-minute time lapsed, Sun-woo told younger self that he will be saving another life and he has to meet him the next day if he wants to know who it was.
Back to present time, Sun-woo was almost done unriddling the connections but was afraid of his suspicions. Jin-cheol’s taunting was not helping too as he told him how his father has been dead even before the fire started. Sun-woo left his just starting news program and went back again to face the sad truth that it was his brother who killed their father.
Enraged at finding the truth, Sun-woo punched his brother in the current time and fainted afterwards. When he gained consciousness, he went back to the scene of his dead father. He saw the camera feeds he recorded and witness Jung-woo out of protecting their mother accidentally killed their father. It was also revealed that Jung-woo was Jin-cheol’s son. Sun-woo made it back to present time, collapsed in exhaustion and since his time-trekking took also his life span while doing it, an emergency surgery was set to save him.
In the midst of battling for his life, younger Young-hoon stumbled on the medicine pack that made them realize why Older Sun-woo didn’t show up. Having knowledge that he will soon suffer brain tumor, they have made adjustments on it to save future Sun-woo.
Sun-woo bought a Whitney Houston LP when he went to Nepal to get the sticks and Min-young. While he was asleep, Min-young wrote an “iloveyounote” on the record and accidentally discovered by her fiancé who jumped into assuming her infidelity.
Min-young sat to write again the text and the lost memories dawned on her. She confronted Sun-woo about it but he was left no choice but to deny it. Overnight Min-young reclaimed all her memories of her togetherness with Sun-woo and went missing trying to reconcile what was happening to her. She called Sun-woo who was frantically searching for her and told her that she was in the place where they shared their first kiss. Sun-woo showed up to Min-young’s wondering, and Sun-woo kissed her in the pouring rain. He reeled off the unearthly fate he unintentionally unfold and gave her an option for them to flee in a far place or stay as family.
While taking care of sick Min-young, younger Sun-woo sent a message to his future counterpart if he has received what he sent him. And presto! The remaining sticks were back in Sun-woo’s hands.
Sun-woo sought his brother’s opinion in using one of the two sticks by revealing all that has happened. They were intending to surrender evidence that would pin Jin-cheol but in the past time line, Jin-cheol has warned younger Jung-woo of the witness who might approach him. Sun-woo luckily escaped the record store after eavesdropping on Jung-woo and Jin-cheol’s conversation but was chased madly by the villain’s man Chang-min. He stabbed Sun-woo but he was able to speak again to Jung-woo to convince him to turn himself in. Sun-woo was cornered and in the dying seconds he jumped to the river and appeared fatally wounded in his dressing room.
Jung-woo from the past finally saw sense in his conflicted life and went to the police station but unfortunately he spoke with the detective who was also bribed by Jin-cheol. Jung-woo from the present informed Sun-woo that their plans failed.
Min-young’s fiancé also confirmed of her true relationship with Sun-woo and as Sun-woo wants to use the last stick to hope for making it right one last time, Min-young insisted on him not doing to protect him from the adverse effect of utilizing the unpredictable sticks.
They decided staying as family. Jung-woo visited his hermit-ing brother and blaming that he was the source of the problem attempted to kill himself. In the morning when Jung-woo died, Young-hoon and Sun-woo fought for the stick as the latter wanted to use it one last time. Young-hoon was in the brink of destroying it but it vanished.
Aware now of the mystifying trick Sun-woo has played Jin-cheol ordered his men to look for clues of what his secret was. The incense was highlighted from Sun-woo and Young-hoon’s conversation as Jin-cheol remembered it while waiting for the verdict of his crimes to be in his possession when the detective 20 years ago gave it to him. He feigned losing consciousness and commanded his right hand to get the incense stick in the archive.
Jin-cheol lit one of the two sticks but it transformed to ashes, so he lit the second one and landed him to his office. He called Chang-min not to stalk about the body of the man he stabbed and just kill younger Sun-woo. Older Sun-woo forced himself to Jin-cheol’s room and abated his time warping but he has already sent out the command for Chang-min to kill.
Young-hoon and Sun-woo delved to their memories but they can’t recall what errand Sun-woo did and in the past timeline, Chang-min found younger Sun-woo and they engaged to a fight. Younger Sun-woo was able to escape and went back to the store but the psychopath broke the lock, but just as he would swing the hammer to kill younger Sun-woo, future Sun-woo stopped it and knocked the killer down.
Older Sun-woo asked him to go to the police station with the evidence that will convict Jin-cheol and called younger Jung-woo who was about to get married. Deciding that he will atone the sin he committed, he walked away from the wedding. Sun-woo waited for his 30-minute time to end and hoped earnestly that he has made everyone happy in the future. The clock ticked to the end time but when he opened his eyes, he was still in the past time line.
In the present timeline, everything changed and people were getting ready for Sun-woo and Min-young’s wedding not realizing that the groom was suspended 20 years ago, to make it worse, Jin-cheol from past timeline saw Sun-woo inside the telephone booth and his character reeking of Darth Vader’s theme geared up to bump the telephone booth fatally wounding Sun-woo.
In the present time Young-hoon and Jung-woo got the police report about Sun-woo’s accident and death 20 years ago. In his dying moment, Shi Ah saw Sun-woo when she returned to get her favorite teddy bear before their flight abroad. Sun-woo summoned his strength and made the little girl promise that if she see someone who look like him in the future, she has to stay away from him.
Then we jump to Sun-woo working at a crime scene. He headed to new recruits party where he knocked out Min-young. Min-young was initially smitten by his pretty face but remembered the promise she had 20 years ago. Sun-woo learned of her stupid trauma story and promised her that them together will never happen but over the years, Min-young’s adoration grows stronger.
Sun-woo met up with his brother who was set to go to Nepal and when he arrived in the station, Min-young was waiting for him. She was also sent to cover an expedition. He played with her locked the door, kissed her sweetly and muttered that he will kiss her again in 5 years. Confused at how Sun-woo was playing with her emotion, she went back and ranted that what he’s doing was really what the dying man he met him 20 years ago meant.
The last piece of saving my life quest dawned on Sun-woo so he set off to Nepal to reach his hand to his brother lying down in the frosty land.
For a change, I witness this hindered love story not because of vengeance or inability of the couple to sit down and talk about the usual jumping into wrong conclusions. This time around there’s no trusting blindly, there’s no let’s leave it to fate or love something resolution but a pure, most of the time cute love tale fighting to survive 9 incense sticks. *giggles
For me it was a satisfying ending that fulfilled the hard work of all those time warpings. I stuck to my preconceived notion that it will be the couple’s love that will resolve everything so the dying part I thought didn’t make sense and even the lead man’s suspension in the past he doesn’t belong, but the finale explained that it was bound to happen for him to give an unrealized warning that he will be needing for him to survive and to make everything right.
The connection of the sticks and Sun-woo was not explained to the fullest and we can only conclude that when he used it, its binding power can be luck or curse depending on how his mind works to process the incidents presented to him.
The fluidity of the characters from past and present helping each other out to pin down the villain whose evilness transcended time was depicted efficiently even if the antagonist was a more contrived worker than the joint protagonists.
Sun-woo has always been leaving clues for his future self to pick up, so the last clue he left to Shi Ah enabled him to save his brother’s supposed frost accident which span his awareness of changing the past.
True, this was a hard to follow drama as the supernatural kicks bordered to beyond impossible but that’s also what made it strong. It was not afraid to push its limit without abusing the “this is metaphysical banner”.
The well linked conflicts and the focus on just one villain helped in drawing a clear flow on the main character’s battle. Instead of myriad problems coming from the usual meanies appearing most of the time with no basis, the hero-villain showdown here was solid except the part when the baneful old fiend’s does his habit of mouth twitching.
It was an exceptional labyrinth themed story where the enchanted incense sticks functioned like Ariadne showing proudly the coherent flow of events and the liaison of the past and present time.
With its smart characters, nifty writing and dexterous editing I fell in love with this drama big time. –jediprincess ^_^
