On September 28, the production team of the upcoming JTBC weekend series Strong Girl Kang Namsoon released the first stills of Ryu Shi Oh (Byeon Woo Seok), the villain in the K-drama. Expectations are running high as viewers eagerly anticipate the intense showdown between him and the three superpowered women Kang Nam Soon (Lee You Mi), Hwang Geum Joo (Kim Jung Eun), and Gil Joong Gan (Kim Hae Sook). 

Ryu Shi Oh is the CEO of the distribution company Dugo and an ambitious figure, unafraid of anything. The newly released images further intensify the anticipation surrounding his character.

Ryu Shi Oh's dark charisma is attention-demanding. Even when he sits quietly, his presence sends a chill. Hidden behind a stoic poker face, viewers can catch glimpses of his enigmatic complexity.

Ryu Sio's explosive anger is also showcased. He seems to be raging over something that has provoked him. The audience's attention is focused on how the charismatic villain Ryu Shi Oh, who possesses both power and charisma, will clash with the three heroic women Kang Nam Soon (Lee You Mi), Hwang Geum Joo (Kim Jung Eun), and Gil Joong Gan (Kim Hae Sook). 

Actor Byeon Woo Seok said, "I liked the works of writer Baek Mi Kyung and director Kim Jung Shik and was attracted to the charismatic villain Ryu Shi Oh". He also shared that he felt excitement and fear as it was his first time playing a villain. "I communicated with the director and prepared for the filming with determination", he said.

Commenting on his character Ryu Shi Oh, Byeon Woo Seok said, "He has a cool-headedness and toughness which makes him unhesitant to use any means to achieve his goals". He added, "As it is a villain role, I made an effort to express my gaze and gestures coldly. It was challenging to naturally portray an unusual situation and character, but I put great effort into ensuring that viewers could accept Ryu Shi Oh without feeling uncomfortable". 

Strong Woman Kang Nam Soon is set to premiere on October 7.
