KANG-SOO’S DELIVERY APP: THE BIRTH
At long last! We finally saw developments to Choi Kang-soo’s (Go Kyung-pyo) delivery app business, which he has decided to name, yeah, Strongest Deliveryman.
I’m just a bit disappointed by this because why did this only happen now? Isn’t it a bit too late considering that this delivery app thing is supposed to be one of the main points of this K-Drama? I think this should’ve been introduced earlier, like in episode 4 or 5. But because it already turned out this way, what we can only do now is to hope it could still help the story pick up.
Kang-soo decided to launch his own business to give jobs to his fellow delivery boys who got fired after their respective bosses discovered their secret deliveries for Hanyang. Another thing that pushed Kang-soo to gamble on this venture is his desire to help Hyun-soo’s halmoni, who is currently facing a huge financial problem due to her grandson’s hospital bills and the impending closure of her restaurant following the Jung family’s acquisition of the building where she is renting.
Hmmm… just wondering. Can’t Oh Jin-gyu (Kim Seon-ho) help Hyun-soo’s family with his hospital expenses? Yeah, it’s true that everything is now alright after he personally apologized to Hyun-soo, but I think it would be much better if he would also help them financially. Do you agree?
KANG-SOO: EVERY GIRL’S DREAM GUY
Can somebody find me my own Kang-soo? I love everything about him, well, except for his hair style. HA HA HA. Like what I’ve said before, his kindness and righteousness set him apart from other guys, and now, his persistence makes him even more desirable.
His persistent efforts is surely winning our feisty heroine Lee Dan-ah (Chae Soo-bin) over, and no matter how much she denies it, her actions just don’t show the same. I agree with what Yeon-ji (Nam Ji-hyun) told her, she’s very transparent like a jellyfish! First, she treats Kang-soo differently. Then, she’s dead worried about him when he got jailed. Also, she accepts help from him when everyone knows that she wants to do things on her own.
With Kang-soo and Dan-ah’s blossoming feelings for each other, two hearts are set to be broken and those belong to Jin-gyu and Lee Ji-yoon (Ko Won-hee). But I hope they find their own happiness in each other because they also deserve it.
HELL JOSEON THAT IS KOREA
Though I’m quite disappointed by Strongest Deliveryman’s a little too draggy storytelling, I still want to applaud the team behind it for their bravery to tackle one sad truth that the modern-day Korea is facing.
Dan-ah, Kang-soo, Yeon-ji, Min-chan, and the delivery boys’ individual stories mirror ordinary Koreans’ struggles in getting stable jobs in their country nowadays. A situation that is actually happening not only in Korea but also in many parts of the world. This is why I really love these type of K-Dramas that fall under the slice-of-life genre because they are relatable, genuine, and most importantly, full of hope.
So, still kudos to Strongest Deliveryman!
