1) 국가대표 2 RUN OFF (2016)

Synopsis:
What does it take to form a women’s Olympic national ice hockey team? A few middle-aged women, a middle school student, and maybe even a North Korean defector? Kang DaeWoong (Oh Dal-Su) is tasked with pulling together a women’s national ice hockey team in the hopes representing South Korea in the Winter Olympics.

What he is able to assemble is a hodgepodge group of women — Lee Ji Won, Park Chae Kyung, Go Young Ja, Jo Mi Ran, Kim GaYeon, and Shin So Hyun — who can barely skate, let alone strike a hockey puck. Can this lackluster group form a team to even dream of making it to the Olympics?
