Strong Girl Nam-Soon became one of the most successful K-dramas on Netflix in 2023. With the series nearing its end, network JTBC confirmed that viewers can expect a third installment.
The two Strong Girl series have turned out to be box office hits. While Strong Girl Bong-Soon starred Park Bo-Young and Park Hyung-Sik, Strong Girl Nam-Soon features Lee Yoo-Mi, Ong Seong-Wu, and Byeon Woo-Seok in lead roles.
The reports of the franchise returning for Season 3 have been doing rounds for some time. Meanwhile, Strong Girl Nam-Soon has only two episodes left.
JTBC on Strong Girl series Season 3: ‘We have plans for another installment’
Strong Girl Bong-Soon premiered in 2017 and Strong Girl Nam-Soon arrived after six years. Both the K-dramas are available on Netflix.
Seeing the success rate of both series, making a third installment was reportedly in talks. Newsen’s Monday report released JTBC’s official statement. It reads, “We have plans for a follow-up series, but we are currently concentrating on writing other works.”
Hence, Season 3 is in the planning stage. The previous installment’s writer was Baek Mi-Kyeong and the director was Kim Jung-Sik.
