CW planning "Strong Girl Do Bong Soon" remake

Writer Melissa Scrivner-Love (Fear the Walking Dead) has set up a project in development: an action one-hour Strong Girl at the CW, with Ronda Rousey and Ben Silverman executive producing and Scrivner-Love writing and executive producing.

The CW’s Strong Girl, from CBS TV Studios, is an adaptation of a Korean format. It follows a former war photographer named Rayna who discovers she is indestructible and potentially the strongest woman in the world. Ghosted by her Spec Ops fiance when she reveals her newfound power to him, Rayna is hired as a bodyguard by a billionaire named Oliver, who sees her true potential.

Wrestler, MMA fighter and actress Rousey executive produces in her first foray into scripted television, alongside Jane the Virgin exec producer Silverman of Propagate Content.

That sounds like it will take out everything cute and charming about the drama and make it the same as every other CW show.

Give me a break the original was already so good! Why can't people just read subs??

honestly i watched 2 eps of the drama when it was airing then dropped it. not for me, hopefully they make it better

So all the humor gone and more about a man didn't love me, let me change my whole life.


Strong woman do bong soon was so good because it balanced drama and humor well, the lead male was the one chasing the girl, and the chemistry between Hyungsik and Park Bo Young.

I didn't realize people liked the original so much; I hated all the homophobic jokes and making light of domestic violence/the abusive mom. I also fastforwarded through all the gang stuff because it was so dumb and slapstick and such a tonal shift from the main serial killer plot (which was excessively violent imo). idk of all the kdramas to remake, I wouldn't have picked this one. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Same. Peopl kept recommending it to me but I couldn't get into it at all
u_know 13th-Nov-2018 03:54 am (UTC)
Same tbh, there were a lot of things about the original that I did not like

it was AWFUL. i am a huge park boyoung fan but even she couldn't save it. it was just plain bad

god the gang sideplot(?) was the worst??? The pacing really went to shit after like the first few episodes. I only got through it because I enjoyed seeing Hyungsik's face.
vintage_boom 13th-Nov-2018 12:50 am (UTC)
will they remove the homophobia, domestic abuse, and transphobia tho??

Keep it.

This does not seem anything like the same story
weneedmedicine 13th-Nov-2018 01:47 am (UTC)
I'm sure it'll be just as bad as the original
kcaomei 13th-Nov-2018 01:59 am (UTC)
it's gonna be a no from me

well, if they can keep actors with chemistry but create a storyline that isn't a mishmash of cliched, offensive, tripe then maybe it'll be worthwhile.

I was a WB/CW type of girls for decades, but shit is not so fun the last few years on that channel.

That.... doesn't sounds like the original plot at all? That said, the CW is trash anyway, I'm glad Jane the Virgin is ending with its next series before it could be fucked up too badly.

Lmfao this drama was hot garbage and a mess of racist, homophobic and domestic violence jokes with terrible writing. I say go ahead and remake it,they'll probably be able to do a better job
