Hitting the 6th episode calls for the story to reassure and engross the audience by turns so I’m happy that love plots and conflicts are settling in and building to a more solid frame. Gook Doo and his team worked on the leads to pin the psycho. Bong Soon came to terms with how she can use her gift through Min Hyuk’s encouragement. Min Hyuk and Gook Do were starting to see her in a romantic kind of light. And we get a late frame surprise that I did not ask to arrive early.
Strong Woman Do Bong Soon Ep 6 Recap
Min Hyuk complains on Gook Doo’s appearance when they already agreed of the arrangement as Bong Soon goes to her usual Gook Doo love trance. The police meets Kyung Shim to check on the mask the culprit probably used, but she denies all the samples brought. Omma lectures them like a police profiler citing how the culprit is not confident of his appearance hence he uses mask to cover up his face.
Gook Doo comments how Min Hyuk’s place is big and he can just sleep on the sofa. Bong Soon refuses strongly at the thought of her one-sided love sleeping at her boss’ room ergo she blurts that he is gay that’s why she does not care staying in his house. She urges Min Hyuk to back up her claim, but he is perplexed on her supposition about him.
He responds to her request and voices out revealing the truth that she is her bodyguard which earned him a quick superpower girl attack. Gook Doo does not want to believe him citing how Bong Soon is a weak woman. Min Hyuk rolls his eyes and is about to battle it out, but Bong Soon is quick to reason out how she has to do the bodyguard job to protect his image and ward off the possible rumors about him being gay.
Gook Doo is forced to believe the nonsense they are talking about and requests if he can sleep in one of his rooms. Min Hyuk processes his thoughts and thinks of Bong Soon gazing at Gook Doo’s sleeping face. Gook Doo is having the same weird thought of Min Hyuk motioning to kiss Bong Soon. Bong Soon also thinks of Min Hyuk taking advantage of Gook Doo. The three shake their heads to dismiss the strange ideas. Gook Doo suggests not sleeping separately which the two acquiesce to.
Min Hyuk proposes staying up all night to kill time so they head to a pub and play pool and darts. Min Hyuk struts his billiards prowess and teases how Gook Doo was such a good student who studied well and never played around hence he cannot pocket the balls well in their game. Min Hyuk slays the game while Bong Soon fights to stay awake.
Next up the boys hit the dartboards and Min Hyuk struggles hitting the marks properly. Gook Doo smirks and clinches every pin to the center. The male ego contest between them is tied so they settle for a drinking game.
Bong Soon whines on their competitive streak and insists on joining the game, but the boys say no in unison. They pile up the glasses of alcohol they drunk as Bong Soon constantly urges for them to stop their stupid game to no avail. None of them wants to concede which ends in a draw as both of them collapse with intoxication facing each other on top of the billiards table.
Aboji nips at omma’s being hard on Bong Soon reminding her that no matter how strong she is, she won’t be able to protect herself if she will be attacked by weapons. Omma replies how she will be safe at CEO’s house. She shuts aboji’s whining of sending their daughter to a man’s house by reiterating that Min Hyuk is homosexual. Kyung Shim cuts to their conversation by voicing out how she thinks Min Hyuk is not a gay which delighted omma who thinks the same way. Aboji flares up but omma is quick to cool him down by assuring her that she knows what is best for their daughter.
Bong Soon stares at the two boys slumped sweetly on the pool table. She checks the pub attendant and quickly grabs the boys and carries them out. She throws Min Hyuk on a corner while carefully placing Gook Doo beside him. She tells Gook Doo that she will buy something to help him sober up and marches to leave.
Just then late night opportunists spot the drunk boys and grope on their wallets for their bounty. Bong Soon calls their attention but they spurn her protest. Bong Soon is left no choice but to teach them a lesson so she summons super powergirl bong soon and sends them flying in the air while the trailing thug boss and his right hand witness the commotion. They are perplexed seeing Bong Soon in action who fussed about her hard work that day thanks to the two alcohol battered men.
Bong Soon drives them home and sneers on their earlier vows of protecting her. She hoists them to Min Hyuk’s living room where she throws her boss carelessly while cushioning Gook Doo’s head and placing his legs on Min Hyuk’s body. Over at Dobong neighborhood the police and thug volunteers monitor and patrol the area from the psycho.
Min Hyuk crawls from the floor to the sofa and finds Gook Doo cozily sleeping with a blanket on. He gripes on how Bong Soon took care of her crush very well and disregards him at his very own house. He removes the blanket and pillow and sighs on almost seeing the face of the girl who saved the bus if only his dream lingered. He checks on sleeping Bong Soon and remembers the girl in pink sweater but dismisses the idea.
Omma wakes up aboji who was tending Kyung Shim and smiles brightly at the thought of her future son-in-law. When Kyung Shim spills that Gook Doo also stayed in the house, aboji is happy while omma complains on why he is working so hard instead of helping out catch the loose madman.
Bong Soon prepares a hangover breakfast for the boys and turns the stuck chopstick to a cute South Korean flag. Min Hyuk feeds his curiousity and explains that he thinks of the country while eating breakfast. Gook Doo pretends Min Hyuk is non-existent and thanks Bong Soon for the food.
Bong Soon responds that they walk to the house last night when Gook Doo asks how they got home. Bong Soon cutely pretends having a hard time opening a jar so Gook Doo reaches for it and helps her. Min Hyuk rolls his eyes at her sly girl crush move and just tackle the food in front of them.
The two resumes their bickering on who won the male ego bout last time. Gook Doo reminds the two of them to stay of limits as Min Hyuk says the same between them. Bong Soon heaves a sigh and straightens them up by narrating the events of last night when they were drunk and chummy like hobbits. She lets them know how Gook Doo went on a quick Magic Mike session, and how the two of them were cuddly and mushy like real lovers if not for her intervention.
Bong Soon munches on some chocolates as Min Hyuk is attacked by her spicy hangover soup. Gook Doo pretends how the soup is okay as Bong Soon takes away her chocolates from Min Hyuk. She coaxes them to eat a lot and offers a piece of chocs to Gook Doo who just want to pass on the food by claiming he normally does not eat breakfast.
Just then Min Hyuk’s stalker calls for his morning death threat and orders him to denounce his successor agreement on the upcoming board meeting or he will destroy him and Ainsoft. Min Hyuk counters for him to try shooting him with a gun, but he will sure catch him first.
Gook Doo urges Min Hyuk to seek help from the police regarding his blackmailer and not get a bodyguard, but he politely declines. Gook Doo receives a call from the station to proceed somewhere for a lead in the case. He turns to Min Hyuk and humbly requests to protect “his Bong Soon” which made our heroine feel blissful. Bong Soon taps Min Hyuk as soon as her friend leaves and assures him to not worry as she will be by his side for his protection.
Min Hyuk grouches on how she just committed a breach of contract with the extremely spicy soup she made by attacking his tummy, but she counters that it was not her fault they drank a lot last night. He continuously grumps on how ever since he met her he has been to all sorts of pain, but he stops when Bong Soon threatens him of where else she can induce a new pain for him.
Gook Doo and his team locates the burner phone owner that was used by the psycho when he abducted the third victim. They secure the suspect and brings him in the station, but he appears not to be the man they are looking for. Gook Doo and team leader deduce how the psycho must have stalked the victim and learned that she booked for an on-call driver. Another team member arrives and reports that the doctor-suspect and the on-call driver are the same as reflected on the CCTV they just analyzed.
Secretary Gong reveals to Min Hyuk that the company suffered a blow in the stock market because of a rumor of him being homosexual. Bong Soon cheers him up by saying her video scandal was wiped out completely last time so the tabloid write ups will disappear too. Min Hyuk ignores her and calls someone to have his name be cleared in the world wide web just like how the drunk girl video vanished.
Bong Soon finally learns what he did for her and thanks him for it. Min Hyuk tells him that the motorcycle thief was found and introduces a website where you can buy motor or car parts. The dumb thief did not destroy the license plate so his men were able to track him. It turns out he works in thug boss company who used to work under his father’s company. Bong Soon gets up determined to catch the thief so Min Hyuk is left no choice but to follow her.
Bong Soon drives steadily but suddenly halts because of the cars in front. They see a man arrogantly bullying a woman and demanding her to step out of the car. The woman profusely apologized and promises to have everything be settled by her insurance to no avail. When the jerk forces the woman out of her car and throws a tantrum, Min Hyuk can’t hold up any longer and as he motions to tell Bong Soon to stay, he finds her already walking towards the man and the woman.
Bong Soon stops the ajussi from his bullying but he carries on his foul mouth blabbling spiteful words to the ladies. Min Hyuk shoves him out of the way and tells him that it was his fault that he braked suddenly that’s why she collided. The bad ajussi backs off as Min Hyuk lectures the woman to close her window and call the police when something like that happens in the future.
Min Hyuk walks back to the car and finds his bodyguard missing at the front seat. Bong Soon’s small head appears behind the still screaming foul words ajussi who brags his martial arts abilities. She tells him to pull over somewhere quiet so they can have a quick chat to which he agrees.
Min Hyuk nervously trails them and sees Bong Soon leaves the car and scolds ajussi nicely of how he took advantage of the weak girl in front of her. She walks in front of the car holds it and pushes it for a spin dropping Min Hyuk’s jaw at her incredible strength. Bong Soon gives a useless pep talk to the ajussi whose brain already fled in outer space to work on his bad atitude and foul mouth. Min Hyuk who witnessed power girl Bong Soon gropes on how he will respond when she notices his presence and acts like she did not spite a man and ruin his car to pieces just a few seconds ago.
Min Hyuk and Bong Soon goes to see the sunset and the former narrates how there is a scene in the movie King Kong where the heroine and Kong see a sunset and they both say it was “beautiful”.

Episode Quick 6 Quick Thoughts
There were a lot of things that happened this episode, but I am not complaining since the story places the humor and the sweets well so far. Just like I am thankful for the big blessing and small ones, like my family to chocolates, I would embrace the fillers intention in the drama so far. I think their purpose is for me to miss Hyung Sik and Ji Soo for a minute or two. So I think I will just buy the side character scenes as long as it won’t drag longer. If worse gets to worst, my contingency plan is to call Detective Jin Hyuk and Golden Time team to help out in pinning down the psycho. But so far, I think we are moving steadily and excitingly while dealing with the romance and thrilling concerns of the story.
