It’s always interesting to speculate on the global reach of South Korean dramas. With their ever-growing fan bases, it’s clear that these shows are here to stay. Many popular Korean dramas have had their audiences begging for more installments. One of them is Strong Girl Bong Soon, aka Strong Woman Do Bong Soon.
This Korean drama, directed by Lee Hyung-min, is definitely worth your time. After the success of the first season, viewers have been eagerly awaiting news of the premiere date for Strong Girl Bong Soon Season 2.
Strong Girl Bong Soon Season 2 Renewal Status
Anybody who has been hoping for more from the ‘Strong Girl Do Bong Soon’ franchise may rejoice: it’s getting one. The second season of ‘Strong Girl Do Bong Soon’ has finally been greenlit, although it took five years. The cast has also been finalized. There was a lot of room for a continuation after the ‘Strong Girl Do Bong Soon’ finish. Strong Woman Kang Nam Soon will be the title of the follow-up film. The protagonist is a distant relative of Bong Soon’s who shares her abilities.
Strong Girl Bong Soon Season 2 Release Date
The first season of Strong Girl Bong Soon premiered on February 24, 2017. There were 16 episodes total, plus a bonus episode, to tell the complete story. The series finale made its debut on JTBC on April 15, 2017. Netflix subscribers can watch it too.
There was a happy conclusion, and everyone in the show got what they wanted out of the story. Furthermore, the producers have not left any sort of cliffhanger that may be used to justify a Season 2 renewal. If the tale was successful, then there is less likelihood of a second season of Strong Girl Bong Soon.
Unfortunately for the fans, the likelihood of a season occurring is low. The producers, however, have not announced either the premiere date for Season 2 or the show’s cancellation., Therefore, there is yet a glimmer of optimism. We anticipate a 2023 or 2024 premiere for Strong Girl Bong Soon Season 2 if the show is revived.
