Iron Ladies closely resembles the Korean series ‘I Need Romance’ in which they both feel like the American television show Sex in the City. You have your versions Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York, and Samantha Jones. The only person that is missing is Miranda Hobbes. Oh, and our male lead, Su Can played by Wu Ben is no Big. Iron Ladies is a good entertaining drama that is just missing some key ingredients in order for it to be a great drama.

Iron Ladies is about three women who work for the same company dealing with their careers as women and also juggling their love lives. Our female lead Kai Ting is a marketer and is engaged to her long-term boyfriend. Her close friend Li-Sha who works with her is our Samantha Jones who doesn’t believe in love. While, the married Ching Ching is a woman in a seemingly perfect marriage that is not-so-perfect. The story isn’t anything new but it’s very entertaining to watch. In the beginning, I was entertained by all of the ladies’ stories and their relationships, particularly the romance between Kai Ting and Su Can. That’s probably the best thing about this drama, especially if you like noona romances. But though Kai Ting and Su Can are obviously our leads, Li Sha and Ching Ching’s storylines are just as good.

The flaws with Iron Ladies is it’s pacing and story. Oddly enough, I think it suffers from a lack of story and not enough episodes, or more so, it’s ending was very abrupt and the ending could have been fleshed out more properly to have a better satisfying conclusion. The story of these girls feels like they ran their course towards the latter half and the only thing that was keeping it going was the back and forth problems with their romantic relationships. Conflict is always a good thing, but when your conflict is somewhat repetitive and drawn out because it’s clear that you have nowhere else to take these relationships, then it’s a problem. Which is a shame considering that I think all of the girls’ stories were very interesting in the first half and the middle. But despite these flaws, I still guarantee an extremely enjoyable watch.

The cast is great. I think everyone played their roles very well, but the star here is Wu Ben who plays our male lead Su Can. I think he has a natural charisma that shines every time on the screen and he brought his character to life. I look forward to seeing him in other dramas hopefully in the future. All of our ladies were great here too and I think they all played their roles well.

Overall, Iron Ladies is a lot of fun. The romances are fun and flirty. The stories of our ladies are very juicy. It makes you want to grab a glass of wine as you watch. It has a few flaws here and there, but nonetheless is an enjoyable watch and one you won’t regret.

If you like a sweet charming male lead, and fierce women at work, then you’ll enjoy or love Iron Ladies.
