Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo is an upcoming coming-of-age romantic drama about athletes. It reminds me of Taerung National Village (which I loved) and I hope it somehow manages to carve out an audience given it’s competing against the star-driven Legend of the Blue Sea.
I am not going to say anything about how hard it is to buy Lee Sung Kyung as a weightlifter… well, I guess I just said something. LOL. But I will give them a chance. It’s a drama, after all.
The first episode premieres on November 16th on MBC.
