As a professional woman in my thirties I can identify with the premise of "Number Woman Gye Sook-ja". We are old enough to have seen a few things in our time, to have felt the pain of betrayal, and the rewards of a job well done with skills we've worked hard to acquire in positions we clawed our way up to. It seems as though Sook-ja is that sort of lady, but with a dark secret. She relies on her wits (yay for smart heroines!) and I'm looking forward to seeing where she goes. I'm also glad to see Jeon Hye-bin in a leading role. She's been working towards this and I think it'll be worth it to see her helm the drama.

After weeks of misguided comedy, meandering plot lines, and a misplaced prioritising of tone over characterisation, its finally a wrap for Strong Woman Do Bong-soon. This last quarter, especially the final episode, rights a few of its many wrongs. Perhaps its better late than never, but at the same time, its a sad reminder of how great the drama could have been if only it had remembered to focus on its heroine, her growth, and her relationships with the people around her.

The press conference for upcoming JTBC drama Man to Man took place on April 18 and the cast and crew of the drama talked about following in the footsteps of JTBCs popular drama, Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, which recently came to an end with impressive ratings.
Strong Woman Do Bong Soon consistently had strong ratings throughout its entire run and rewrote JTBC history by becoming the networks most watched drama of all time. The drama almost broke the 10% mark and has become the pride and joy of JTBC, as the network has previously always been pushed into second place by tvN in the Friday-Saturday time slot.
In an interview on April 18, Park Bo Young talked about why she thought Strong Woman Do Bong Soon was as popular as it was and revealed which line from the script she changed on set.
The actress said, For me, the script is the most important part when choosing a new project. The script [for Strong Woman Do Bong Soon] was fun and [Do Bong Soon] was a type of character that I wanted to take on; however, there were some difficulties at first because the environment at the time was not conducive to me taking on this project. There were many things that I wanted to do but only so many things that I could. At the time, I wondered if I was still too lacking to take on the role.
