Come for Lee Yoo Mi, stay for 3 generations of women living their best lives

Look, this drama won't be for everyone. It's an unapologetically over the top fairy tale/comic book mashup with a barely coherent plot that requires a generous suspension of disbelief, and much like its predecessor, the writing and character development are mediocre and the treatment of the men in the family feels mean-spirited at best and downright abusive at worst.

And yet, I enjoyed it so much more than I expected because, for all its faults, this drama absolutely nails it with Lee Yoo Mi as Nam-soon. She is utterly incandescent as our titular strong girl and I know not everyone is a fan of the bubbly and naive female lead, but I loved her and her cheeky grin and her unwavering sense of justice SO much. Lee Yoo Mi truly carried this drama on her back (pun intended) and she was an absolute delight to watch and I can't wait to what she does next.

The rest of the main cast is a total hoot as well, Kim Jung Eun and Kim Hae Sook are both fabulously campy, chewing every scene they're in with aplomb, and I genuinely love that we got to see a 60+ year old woman with a romance subplot and doing more than just being a granny. Ong Seong Woo is endearingly earnest as the long-suffering good guy cop getting bridal-carried all over the place by his super strong girlfriend, and Byeon Woo Seok took "if evil why sexy" and dialed it all the way up to 11 and we thank him for his service (somebody needs to create a mafia bromance drama with him and Lee Hong Nae ASAP).

In short, this is not a drama you watch for the plot, this is a drama you watch for the actors hamming it up in the silliest situations. It's deeply unserious but pretty fun if you throw logic out the window, and above all else, I love that we got to see these 3 generations of brash, bold women who fearlessly pursued their dreams, protected their loved ones, and used their powers to do good with reckless abandon.
