Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (역도요정 김복주)

Starring and

Lee Sung Kyung (Doctor Crush, Cheese in the Trap) and Nam Joo Hyuk (Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, Cheese in the Trap) star in a school romantic comedy that runs laps across the heart and lifts the spirits high. When a sweet weightlifter comes across an ambitious but emotional swimmer, the two form a connection. Swimming across the ocean and lifting mountains, however, might prove easier than finding love.

Kim Bok Joo (Lee Sung Kyung) is a collegiate weightlifter. She is ambitious and always fights for what is right. But beneath her tough, weightlifter exterior is a soft and fragile heart. She grew up with her dad, a former weightlifter and a chicken restaurant owner, and her uncle, a wannabe actor. Her natural strength and confidence means that she, along with the rest of the girls of the weightlifting team, aren’t exactly popular with the boys, the gymnastics team, or anyone in general.

One day, our weightlifting gal bumps into Jung Joon Hyung (Nam Joo Hyuk). A talented swimmer, Jung Joon Hyung’s career seems to be stuck on the starting line. Raised by his aunt and uncle, his ambition and impulsiveness led to him starting a major race before the buzzer, and he was disqualified as a result. This had a traumatic impact on his ability to compete, and has thrown his free-spirited nature into a mess.

When Kim Bok Joo bumps into Jung Joon Hyung while riding her bike, he accidentally drops his handkerchief. She, being the sweetheart that she is, cleans and irons it before returning it to the swim team. Jung Joon Hyung snaps and starts yelling at her. In the ensuing chaos, Kim Bok Joo falls into the pool. When he rescues her, Jung Joon Hyung realizes where he first saw this girl: years ago, she had saved his life.

There is also Jung Jae Yi (Lee Jae Yoon from Another Oh Hae Young), Jung Joon Hyung’s cousin and essentially his older brother. He was once an athlete but, following an injury, became an obesity doctor. Jung Jae Yi’s kind nature leads to Kim Bok Joo falling in love with him. His gentle personality is in stark contrast to his hot-headed cousin’s.

Song Shi Ho (Kyung Soo Jin from Entourage) is the most graceful member of the gymnastics team. But her outside grace is perfectly opposite to the chaos inside her head. She has become worried about her growing stature, because gymnasts aren’t exactly allowed to be the size of healthy adults. As a result, she becomes insecure and leaves behind the lovable Jung Joon Hyung. Now reunited with the man who she once saved but also falling for his cousin and butting heads with his ex, can our weightlifting fairy shoulder the burden of emotion while also juggling a pair of dumbbells?

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo is directed by Oh Hyun Jong, who fans will remember for his work on A New Leaf and Level 7 Civil Servant. The drama is written by Yang Hee Soong, whose recent resume of successes includes Oh My Ghostess and High School King of Savvy. The story is loosely inspired by the life of actual South Korean weightlifter Jang Mi Ran.

The drama is a reunion for Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk, who both worked on Cheese in the Trap and are frequently found together in modeling assignments for the YG label. The drama debuted on MBC on November 16, 2016, and ran for 16 episodes with a finale on January 11, 2017. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo was a critical success, netting best actor and actress nominations for all four of its main cast members at the 35th MBC Drama Awards, and another for Ahn Gil Kang (Mirror of the Witch), who plays Kim Bok Joo’s father.
