Hello, DramaSpot readers!
This week I am recommending the romantic comedy: Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.
Starring Lee Sung Kyung, Nam Joo Hyuk, Kyung Soo Jin, Lee Jae Yoo, and Cho Hye Jung.
Written by Yang Hee Soong, this 16 episode series aired in 2016.
Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, and KissAsian.
Kim Bok Joo (Lee Sung Kyung) is a college athlete, specifically a weightlifter. Even though she can lift heavy weights, she is kind and ambitious, only wanting people to do the good thing. Jung Joon Hyung (Nam Joo Hyuk) is a competitive swimmer, who because of a traumatic past competition has become less free spirited and serious when it comes to swimming. When Bok Joo and Joon Hyung meet after she returns his lost handkerchief, Joon Hyung remembers meeting Bok Joo years ago after she saved his life.
Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo has been a hit drama these past few months. With its hilarious cast and witnessing Lee Sung Kyung lifting so many heavy objects but having awkward moments around boys, this drama is not only cute but also inspirational for young girls who look up to a ‘weightlifting fairy’.
