En 90-minuters makalöst underhållande monolog med Johan Rheborg, där han rannsakar sin hjärna för att svara på den klassiska frågan: Vad vill kvinnor egentligen?. Komedin "Hur tänker hon", med originaltitel "The Male Intellect" är en enmansshow där Rheborg spelar alla karaktärerna. Med en enkel axelryckning, en knyck på nacken eller med att himla med ögonen förvandlar Rheborg sig till någon av sina fem alter egos. "Hur tänker hon?" är en unik show, där kombinationen av teater och stå-upp-komik, som är både provokativ, manar till eftertanke och samtidigt får folk vrida sig av skratt, är oslagbar.

Hur Jun is a 2000 TV biographical drama broadcast by the South Korean TV channel MBC. It was aired by Taiwan Television in 2002 and Hong Kong's TVB in 2005, after the finale of "Dae Jang Geum".
