Strong Girl follows the story of a former war photographer named Rayna, who finds out about her incredible strength that renders her indestructible. Although she has potentially become the strongest woman in the world, she ends up being ghosted by her Special Operations fiancé when she reveals her newfound power to him.

Rayna is then hired as a bodyguard by a billionaire named Oliver, who sees her true potential. Rayna’s character is modeled after Park Bo Young’s rock-hard lead Do Bong Soon. Meanwhile, Oliver is inspired by Park Hyung Sik’s character – top gaming company Ainsoft’s CEO – in the original drama named Ahn Min Hyuk.

Rousey will also take over the title role as well, pitching in a different take of Bo Young’s original role, with her experience as a wrestler and mixed martial arts fighter.
