For avid Korean drama watchers, “Strong Girl Nam-Soon” may sound very familiar. It’s a spinoff to the massively popular romantic K-drama “Strong Girl Bong-Soon,” released in 2017.

The new installment takes a slightly different route and focuses more on action rather than romance. The famous Squid Game actress, Lee Yoo-mi, plays the titular role of Gang Nam-soon.

Gang Nam-soon is a girl with superhuman strength who went missing in Mongolia as a kid. As an adult, Nam-soon returns to Korea to look for her family. To her surprise, both her mother, a rich businesswoman, and her grandmother possess the same superhuman strength as her. They somehow end up getting tangled in a drug case and now have to work with the police to solve it.

The show maintains its comedy from “Strong Girl Bong-soon” and blends elements of action, family, and crime in a well-rounded watching experience.
