Strong Girl Nam-soon Episode 3 Review

The cameo by Park Hyung-sik and Park Bo-young was so unexpected! They hardly got 10 minutes but with just that they made the entire episode wholesome. The Park-Park couple’s chemistry is still off the chart and both of them looked stunning as usual. It’s clever how they pulled in the main leads of Strong Woman Do Bong-soon to successfully captivate the viewers.

Nam-soon is such a cute character and it’s nice that she finally found her family. Hee-sik is already in love with Nam-soon and it’s going to be a lovely journey to watch them both spend their time together. More of Geum-ju and Bong-go’s romance must be explored because their comedic nature is one of the series’ highlights.
