A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Themes of family, motherhood, classism, relationships, and gender roles are explored.
Positive Role Models
The Hwang family has used their strength to make themselves a comfortable life, and above all else want to preserve their legacy. Some characters have ulterior motives and take advantage of others. Nam-soon is very determined, and good-natured, and uses her powers for her community and to help others.
This series subverts the typical nuclear family structure and gender roles. Women hold superhuman strength in this lineage, and men usually raise children and care for the home. Yet there is also a balance of female characters still desiring marriage and male partners. Writer Baek Mi-kyung is notable for her past series centering female characters who are powerful, flawed, and complex.
