“My Strange Hero” is about Kang Bok Soo (Yoo Seung Ho), a man who returns to his old school to enact revenge after he was expelled as a student due to false accusations. However, he soon becomes entangled again with his first love from that time, Son Soo Jung (Jo Bo Ah).
In the released stills, Kang Bok Soo and Son Soo Jung participate in an athletic competition. They end up in the same team for a three-legged race, but Kang Bok Soo merely stares off into the distance, disinterested by the events. Son Soo Jung has a different attitude as she charges forward with determination blazing in her eyes.
In another set of photos, Son Soo Jung ends up carrying Kang Bok Soo on her back after both of them fall over. She clenches her teeth and squeezes her eyes shut as she carries him towards the finish line. The previously disinterested Kang Bok Soo is surprised by this turn of events.
Yoo Seung Ho and Jo Bo Ah filmed this scene at a high school in Incheon, Seoul. The two actors were professional this day as they rehearsed their scene and checked each detail. As soon as the cameras stopped rolling, Yoo Seung Ho and Jo Bo Ah burst into laughter as they looked at each other.
The production staff stated, “Because the drama itself is [about] a school, there are many scenes we [filmed] with students. Yoo Seung Ho and Jo Bo Ah naturally blended in with the teenage students as they put on their performance. The atmosphere on set full of endless laughter that matches the youthful and warm atmosphere of the drama will be transferred directly to the camera. Please look forward to the show.”
“My Strange Hero” will air its first episode on December 10 after “Death Song,” and will be available on Viki!
