Bossam: Steal the Fate (보쌈-운명을 훔치다, Bossam — Unmyeongeul Humchida, literally "Bossam — Steal Fate") is a 2021 Korean historical romance drama starring Jung Il-woo, Kwon Yu-ri, Shin Hyun-soo and Kim Tae-woo. It aired for 20 episodes on channel MBN.
Ba Woo is a rough peasant and single father with a mysterious past who pretty much does anything for money. One of those things is performing Bossam (a medieval Korean practice in which widows forbidden to marry under the law are kidnapped and brought to eligible men for money and thus can remarry). During one Bossam he accidentally kidnaps widowed Royal Princess Soo Kyung and ends up having to protect her from her in-laws, who are trying to murder her so the king won’t find out they let her get abducted.
The series can be watched on Viki with English subtitles.
Bossam: Steal the Fate includes examples of:
- Feminine Women Can Cook: Averted. While the Princess is most definitely a Proper Lady, her domestic skills are nonexistent obviously.
- Winning Over the Kids: Ba Woo's motherless young son is instantly smitten with the beautiful, kind Soo Kyung (and the feeling is mutual) and against his will Ba is touched.
