Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

This drama is a mixture of fantasy, Thriller, Action and romantic-comedy. The chemistry between the two leads is very interesting. As-usual I felt bad for the second hero. Do Bong-soon was born with superhuman strength. Her strength is hereditary and passed only to the women in her family and her dream is to create a video game with herself as the main character.

Bong-soon has a forever crush on Gook Doo, her beloved guy friend from childhood. In Gook Doo is a police-man. Sadly, he likes elegant, overly feminine girls. Because of this reason she wants to become a willowy and elegant woman, which is the ideal type of her crush.

One day, Bong-soon helps out a bus driver who is being attacked by a thug. Soon, a small gang of thugs attack Bong-soon, with her power she could easily defeat them. During this time, Min-Hyuk sees the scene of Bong-soon beating up the mob.

Min-Hyuk is an odd man who is playful, little spoiled has no regard for rules and he dislikes policemen. He is a second-generation chaebol and CEO of a gaming company, Ainsoft. He is being threatened by an unknown enemy and he is determined to solve the problem by himself out of his distrust of the police. Finally with her strength she gets hired as the bodyguard of Min-Hyuk. Besides offering bong-soon high pay, he even offers her the chance of working in the planning department of his gaming company if she does well.

Meanwhile, a series of kidnappings occur in Bong soon’s small,quiet neighborhood Dobong-dong, their little community is thrown into chaos. Beside, protecting her boss life, she wanted to catch the culprit after her friend was targeted. Under the help and training from Min-Hyuk, she manages to control her strength because if she misuses her strength, she could lose the power. Meanwhile, Min-Hyuk wins the heart of Bong-soon. Finally, She catches the kidnapper and saves her friend and other women. From that moment she uses her strength to punish bad people.

The ending is awesome as she gets married to Min-hyuk and gives birth to two girls from there on-wards Min-Hyuk gets into trouble as the woman in the family flows with superhuman strength.
