Strong Girls are our favorite and their stories are absolutely fun to watch. Sadly, Strong Girl Nam Soon, the 2023 K-drama has come to an end. The show was released earlier this year on 7th October and like all the other k-dramas, it featured sixteen swoon-worthy episodes.
The show ended on 26th November 2023, and it hasn’t even been that long yet all of our feeds are filled with spoilers and edits for this show. The show which served as a spin-off to Strong Girl Bong-Soon stars Lee Yoo-mi as Gang Nam-soon, our new strong girl. Other main leads of this drama are Kim Jung-eun, Kim Hae-sook, Ong Seong-wu, and Byeon Woo-seok.
Just like the previous drama, Strong Girl Nam Soon follows a strong girl who is born with supernatural strength. Nam Soon inherited this power from her mother and grandmother but this power brings problems in her life as well.
The show began with Gang Nam-soon who disappeared in Mongolia as a child and arrived in South Korea in search of her family. Somehow, she ends up meeting her billionaire businesswoman mom and her grandmother in South Korea. As the three get closer, they also get involved in a drug case that upends their normal lives.
Fans were enjoying the show perfectly well as new episodes got aired. We even got a surprise appearance from the main cast of Strong Girl Bong-soon, Park Bo-Young, and Park Hyung-sik. It’s safe to say that the show was raising our expectations but the way this season ended, some fans feel disappointed.
Spoilers alert, if you have watched the show, then we get your interest but if you are still planning on watching the show, then we suggest you leave ASAP!
Strong Girl Nam Soon Ending Explained
Throughout the show, all of us had been leaning toward the not-so-bad guy, Ryu Shi-oh. The antagonist stole our hearts and we couldn’t help but feel for his tragic backstory. As a person who has been abandoned, Ryu Shi-oh deserved better. Or was the end perfect for him?
In the final episodes, we see Ryu Shi-oh grabbing the gun and choosing to take a major step. With a final decision, he takes his life, breaking several hearts along with his death. Nobody had guessed it coming and seeing him die, fans were disheartened.
However, with this death and the appearance of a new character, fans are speculating that there might be a new season.
Ryu Shi-oh was handed a gun by his friend he trusted the most but he still had a choice. Ryu chose to die with dignity, taking matters into his own hands.
Nam Soon discovers the man she’d been meeting wasn’t who she thought he’d be and is shocked to learn his true identity.
The Bread Song manages to flee, Ryu decides to take his own life, and other women in the family recover and everyone involved with the drug distribution goes to prison.
While there were some sad scenes, we also got some happy moments during the final episode. Gang Hee Sik proposes to Nam Soon and shares his dream of having a baby girl together. Gang Hee Sik also expressed his wish for their daughter to inherit this superpower from Nam Soon’s bloodline. Later, both the families were seen discussing their plans for their upcoming wedding.
A New Beginning For Nam Soon?
The ending of Strong Girl Nam Soon also raises the question of a possible new season. Although it’s unlikely for a K-drama to continue for two seasons, we might get a new season exploring another character born with supernatural abilities. It’s expected that Jang Chung Dong will be the male lead in the possible new season.
Nothing has been confirmed officially so we can’t be sure. In the meantime, Strong Girl Nam Soon is available for streaming on Netflix so press on that play button now!
