Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo



This is a really cute drama that uses childhood friendship, but in a cute way.

Kim Bok Joo (Lee Sung Kyung) is a promising female weightlifter, who’s father has pushed her into working hard for her passion. While her father, Kim Chang Gul (Ahn Kil Kang), works hard at his restaurant and her uncle, Kim Dae Ho (Kang Ki Young), is trying to break into the entertainment industry. As the weightlifting team is not popular with boys, no one on the team has a boyfriend, well that is until Jung Joon Hyung (Nam Joo Hyuk) notices Bok Joo.

Joon Hyung is a swimmer in the same school as Bok Joo. One day, on campus, he bumps into Bok Joo and doesn’t recognize her until she comes back to give him back his handkerchief. When she falls into the pool and he saves her, the puzzle pieces starts to fall into place. As soon as they recognize each other Joon Hyung starts hanging out with Bok Joo and picks their relationship back up again.

The relationship in this drama is cute. Bok Joo is not the typical cute girl, or even a relatively thin girl. She very realistic that way. When she starts putting on weight to go up a weight group, Joon Hyung simply encourages her, as weightlifting is her passion. They show a very healthy relationship, where they talk openly and love each other even though they have their flaws. It also shows that even people who are not stereotypical pretty can find love and be happy. This drama just left me with a good feeling in general. This is definitely worth a watch as it’s a very happy go lucky drama.
