"My Strange Hero" is an odd but warm romance about a character named Kang Bok-soo, played by Yoo Seung Ho, whose name “Bok-soo” means “revenge” in Korean. In his high school years, he is wrongfully accused of committing assault and is expelled. Years later, he comes back to school to take his revenge on all the people who wronged him, including Jo Bo Ah’s character. Jo Bo Ah plays Sohn Soo-jung, Kang Bok-soo’s first love, who ends up at their old high school in a temporary teaching position in their adult years.
Kwak Dong Yeon plays Oh Se-ho who is described as having a smiling face and a gentle personality. However, the character develops an inferiority complex and a love-hate relationship with Kang Bok-soo. In their youth, Se-ho struggled as a student, but Bok-soo always seemed to be happy and without problems. In his adult years, Se-ho joins the story as a member of the school board. Kim Dong Young will play Kang Bok Soo’s best friend of nine years and the CEO of “Your Request,” and Park Ah In will be Kang Bok Soo’s friend Yang Min Ji.
"My Strange Hero", also known as "Revenge Returns", premieres Monday, December 10 on SBS.
