I watched this show at the recommendation of my friend, B Nice and she didn’t steer me wrong at all. This was a great recommendation as I enjoyed this show from beginning to end. The characters, the main couple, and the second lead were all wonderfully entertaining and I couldn’t get enough of this entire show.
Do Bong-soon (Park Bo-young) was born with superhuman strength. Her strength is hereditary and passed along only to the women in her family. Her dream is to create a video game with herself as the main character. She desperately wants to become a willowy and elegant woman, which is the ideal type of her crush, In Gook-du (Ji Soo), a police officer. Thanks to her strength, she gets the job of a bodyguard, to a rich heir Ahn Min-hyuk (Park Hyung-Sik), the CEO of a gaming company, Ainsoft.
Contrary to Gook-du, Min-hyuk is an odd man who is playful, a little spoiled, and has no regard for rules, and dislikes policemen. He has recently received anonymous threats, blackmails, and has even been stalked on an occasion. One day, a series of kidnapping cases break in Dobong-dong, the district Bong-soon lives in, and she is determined to catch the culprit after her friend was targeted.
This show was my introduction to Park Bo Young, Park Hyung Sik, and Ji Soo. All three of these actors wormed their way into my heart and I’ve added all of their stuff to my watch list because I want to support their careers…all because of their work on this show. I really enjoyed all aspects of this show. The characters were well rounded and even though you have to suspend belief at times, I didn’t even care. I was entertained in every single episode and I even shed tears at different parts. I especially shed tears during this scene…
I waited so damn long for Do Bong Soon to finally notice my guy Ahn Min Hyuk. She was so blinded by Gook-Du that she never gave the guy that loved the real her all along. I mean, I don’t blame her for being blinded by Gook Du because that guy was fine as hell too but he wasn’t Min Min.
There was much to love about this show. The humor for one had me cracking up at every turn. When Min pretends to be gay because that’s what Bong Soon thought and how extra she got whenever Gook Du and Min Hyuk were together had me dying. I also loved the friendship between Bong Soon and her friends and her brother. She had a great relationship with her family (even her extra ass Mom) and it was fun to see their relationship in action on the small screen. This was a fun show with sweet moments and characters that will charm the socks right off of you. What more could you want? If you’re looking for a fun show with a cute romance, check this one out. It’s super good!
