In Korea, White Day is a time of great anticipation for women who are waiting to see if their Valentine's Day efforts will produce a reciprocal gift from their special Valentine! This usually means flowers, chocolates, stuffed animals, and other romantic gestures for most women, however, this White Day was one to remember for some very lucky fans of Strong Woman Do Bong Soon's stars Park Hyung Sik and Kim Ji Soo! From free hugs to a personal escort home by these dashing leading men...read onto find out just how high of a bar Park Hyung Sik and Kim Ji Soo set for White Days to come!

White Day was a busy time for Strong Woman Do Bong Soon stars Park Hyung Sik and Kim Ji Soo! Both actors were busy making sure to keep their promises to fans who have made the drama a hit. This year's White Day fan extravaganza all began with a simple promise to fans that if the first broadcast of the drama broke 3 percent in viewership ratings, then the two male leads would give out free hugs and escort a few lucky fans home from school. Luckily, Strong Woman Do Bong Soon's first broadcast was rated at 4.04 according to Nielsen Korea.

True to their words, during the day Park Hyung Sik and Kim Ji Soo held a free hug event at Times Square in Yeongdeungpo District where 100 randomly pre-selected fans received hugs from the two actors. 

While the 100 fans who got hugs were lucky indeed, fortune smiled brightest upon three unbelievably blessed high school students! Being the chivalrous gentlemen that they are, Park Hyung Sik and Kim Ji Soo made an appearance at Incheon’s Hae Won High School in order to escort three High School students home who normally walk home alone at night.

If their company home was not enough, Hyung Sik and Ji Soo also presented each of the students with roses, gifts, and even took pictures with them to commemorate their time together!

While taking the students safely to their homes, hilarity ensued as they talked about their dream jobs, talents, and which Strong Woman Do Bong Soon character they liked best.  

Park Hyung Sik became a little distraught when two of the students said they liked Ji Soo's character (In Gook Doo) best because they thought he was good looking. However, while Ji Soo tried to hide his embarrassment, the final student stepped in and named Hyung Sik's character (Ahn Min Hyuk) as her favorite for being both cheerful and handsome.

It was a good thing that Hyung Sik and Ji Soo showed up to escort the young women as one of the three students admitted, "There are no streetlights leading up to my house so it’s scary at night.” She also went onto recount a time when she had found herself in a dangerous situation while walking home alone at night.
