The leads of drama ‘Strong Woman Do Bong Soon (힘쎈여자도봉순)’, Park Hyungsik and Park Boyoung were in Singapore last weekend to grace the official opening ceremony of the Korea Travel Organisation organised by the Korean Tourism Organisation (Singapore). They were greeted by a huge crowd that occupied every level of the mall and were visibly quite shocked to see the immense support!
The pair proved their chemistry when Boyoung was having trouble maneuvering on top of the higher chair and Hyungsik instinctively let her have his lower chair instead. Seems like the pair really looks out for each other!
While Hyungsik admitted that he has not been to Singapore a lot, Boyoung said that she loved Singapore so much she came on a holiday with her sister and thoroughly enjoyed it so she was glad to be back again.
Both of them expressed their content with the drama and agreed that there was never a dull moment on set. One incident in particular was when they had to draw a heart on the beach but both of them had different opinions on how a heart should be drawn and ended up bickering on set. While presenting both sides of their arguments, they cutely bickered on stage too!
Hyungsik personally likes spicy food so he recommends Kimchi stew (김치찌개) as a dish he wants everyone to try while Boyoung feels that Korean beef (한우) paired with cold noodles (냉면) is something she would recommend.
Boyoung says that while Myeongdong is a popular shopping destination for tourists, she likes the charm of Samcheong-dong and would like tourists to visit it more often. Hyungsik on the other hand wants to recommend Hongdae, where there is a younger crowd and occasionally, buskers. He also said that Hongdae is somewhere he frequents and he enjoys going to.
‘Strong Woman Do Bong Soon’ was extremely well received both in Korea and internationally. While both stars are thankful for the support, Boyoung said that she’s recovering from filming the drama and Hyungsik also said that he has not decided on his next appearance and will be taking a break from the screen for a while. So I guess we won’t be seeing Minmin and Bongbong on screen again any time soon!
