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’.

Cinderella and the Four Knights

Hello again, DramaSpot readers!

This week I am recommending the Romantic Comedy: Cinderella and the Four Knights.
Starring Jung Il Woo, Park So Dam, Ahn Jae Hyun, Lee Sung Shin, Choi Min Sung, Son Na Gun, and Kim Young Gun.

Eun Ha Won (Park So Dam) is a modern day Cinderella, having lost her mom as a young child she is forced to live with an evil step-mother and step-sister. The only difference between Ha Won and Cinderella is that Ha Won is not waiting for a ‘Prince’ to come rescue her. She is hardworking, tough, and fierce. One night while delivering a pizza she encounters Kang Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Hyun), a possible heir to the Kang Family Fortune, who is intrigued by her tough personality. The next night she meets Kang Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo), another heir, who is a loner and has a mystery behind his birth. When Ha Won is roped into living with the Kang family, she ends up in a romantic quad between the Kang cousins.

This drama seems like it’s going to be hilarious and heart-wrenching at the same time. I’ve never heard of a drama that has a ‘quadrangle’ between the main female lead and four leading men. But I think that it will be interesting to see how each boy makes their move and will either be rejected or accepted. Cinderella and the Four Knights while it has a similar plot to other drama (rich boy meets poor girl) I think adding the factor that Ha Won is a badass will make the storyline much more interesting.

Hong Seol (Kim Go Eun) is a hard working university student who is just trying to do the best that she can in school. After taking a year off from school to earn money for her tuition she comes back to find that Yoo Jung (Park Hae Jin), Hong Seoul’s senior, is being surprisingly nice to her. After witnessing a darker side to Yoo Jung, Hong Seoul is cautious around her senior and is also finding herself falling for him.

This seems like a really fun, yet intense, show. I was a bit confused in the beginning of how Hong Seol knew Yoo Jung, but I also find myself wanting to see how their relationship can grow and become something interesting.
