A representative from JTBC confirmed that the cast and crew of the network’s currently popular drama Strong Woman Do Bong-soon will go on a reward vacation in Indonesia. “Towards the end of next month, the entire cast and crew will [be] staying in Bali for 3 nights and 5 days, 4 nights and 6 days as a reward vacation,” the representative stated as quoted in allkpop.
This confirms earlier reports on the possibility of the reward vacation for the cast and crew given the success of the drama. Strong Woman Do Bong-soon premiered on February 24, 2017 with 3.83 % nationwide viewership rating (from Nielsen Korea), the highest drama premiere rating in the history of JTBC. The drama continued to enjoy even higher ratings in the following weeks and reached its all-time high of 9.60 % on March 18. The average ratings of the eight episodes that have been aired so far is 7.03 %.
The drama is obviously receiving much appreciation from the Korean audience. To thank those who supported the show, the two male leads of the drama, Park Hyung-sik and Ji-soo, even gave out free hugs to 100 fans last week. Now, JTBC decided to acknowledge the efforts of the cast and crew by giving them a reward vacation they surely deserve.
The romantic comedy drama revolves around the life of Do Bong-soon (Park Bo-young), a woman born with extraordinary strength which she inherited from her family. She works as a bodyguard to An Min-hyuk (Park Hyung-sik), a chief executive officer of a video gaming company who hired her due to her superhuman strength. A murder case in their neighborhood forces them to live in one house together with In Guk-doo (Ji Soo), a police detective who is Bong-soon’s childhood friend and secret crush.
Strong Woman Do Bong-soon airs every Fridays and Saturdays at 11 pm on JTBC. It will be followed by Man to Man on April 21, 2017.
