Strong Girl is in the works of getting a new installment

JTBC announced that thanks to the ongoing success of the original 2017 K-drama and Strong Girl Nam-soon, a Season 3 installment could happen.

According to Soompi, JTBC commented, “We have plans for another installment, but we are currently concentrating on writing another project.”

The K-drama has done considerably well in ratings, but some fans have had mixed reactions to its storyline and overall concept. Fans were originally hoping Season 2 to pick up where the 2017 K-drama left off as Bong-soon, now married to An Min-hyuk (Park), gave birth to twin daughters. They inadvertently inherited her powers. Instead, the two actors made a well-received cameo appearance in Strong Girl Nam-soon.

With very few details about Season 3 of the Strong Girl series, fans can likely speculate it will focus on another family member with the same powers. So far, fans are not 100% on board with JTBC’s decision of a third installment.

One fan on X (Twitter) commented, “Makers it’s a request please take same cast of season 1.”

Another said, “Do bong soon? YES! gang nam soon? NO!”

Many fans have similar thoughts that the first season was the best, with the second not being a fan favorite due to its heavy drug storyline. Others felt Season 2 didn’t focus enough on the main couple compared to Strong Woman Do Bong-soon.
