Not excited about Rhonda being cast as Bong Soon. What on earth were they thinking? They need to cast a petite, cute girl. Bong Soon is small and cute. Rhonda is a lot of things, but trust me "small and cute" is not one of them

I know right! The whole point of the show was that no one would expect that character of having the power that she had.

Also, the character had superpowers, which was the whole point of the plot. This is just going to be an angry buff woman actually fighting people.

Sure. It might reach a new peak in the realm of uselessness.

Lol its gonna be sooo censored. We arent even gonna recognize it. Spousal abuse? homophobia? a character who thinks all women are weak?? Yeaaaah Americans are gonna hate that shit. Americans get so triggered by this stuff, and easily forget that its just for entertainment and not to take it personally.

Casting is off. Can't get a strong woman to play the part. Someone pettite and small, maybe not like Ariana Grande small.

Think Kristen Bell can do well, combination of small, cute, strong but on the older side.

If you want quirky sassy and small then Anna Kendrick.

No hate to Ronda Roussey, but she doesn't quite fit the character sketch of Do Bong Soon, a tiny, petite girl, who "looks" harmless.

If you realy want to have a wrestler in the series take Aleaxa Bliss..... She is small... And she may fit the character

They should cast someone from Teen wolf actress like they are famous and after the series ended they are also free my guess or maybe Nina Dobrev can make a comeback but this lead is big no no
