This drama is inspired by the life of South Korean Olympic weightlifter gold-medalist Jang Mi Ran and it’s about college athletes who fighting for their dreams and finding love.

Kim Bok Joo (Lee Sung Kyung) is a student in Hanwool College of Physical Education. She has shown strength like no other since she was a child as influenced by her former weight lifter father. She looks thoughtless at a first glance, but inside she’s as fragile as glass and has deep recognition.

Jung Joon Hyung (Nam Joo Hyuk) is Kim Bok Joo’s best friend. He is a born swimmer but ever since he was disqualified from his first international event, he suffers from ‘start trauma’. Along with Kim Bok Joo, he overcomes his troubles and finds his dream and love.

Song Shi Ho (Kyung Soo Jin) is a rhythm gymnast who also attends Hanwool College of Physical Education. She started gymnastics since she was 5 and won the Asian Games at the age of 18. She’s always been the best since then but mental pressure caused her to break up with Jung Joon Hyung and regret it.

  1. 1 : Simon K Says:

    Lee Song Kyung is tall and skinny, totally wrong body type for a weightlifter. It is interesting to see how she do weight lifting with her pogo stick body 🙂

  2. 2 : tigerb Says:

    @Simon K: yeah, at the picture above, her arms are so thin! maybe the weights are one-pounders. opppss, sorry!

  3. 3 : Ponder Says:

    Lee sung kyung as weightlifter????? She is a great uprising actress… But her physical built is the skinny side…

  4. 4 : ayeng Says:

    fighting lee sung kyung

  5. 5 : Hye Joo Says:

    I thought Nam Joo Hyuk as JUNG JOON YUNG

  6. 6 : Dee Dee Says:

    Watchin roommates n seeing the female kickboxer’s body this actress isn’t cutting it when representing a weightlifter but hey most of the actresses r super thin anyway.

  7. 7 : AbbyHanabia Abdullah Says:

    yeeyy…good combination..Na Joo Hyuk & Lee SUng kyung..love both of them….

  8. 8 : yeng Says:

  10. 10 : Hannah Says:

    I’m far more excited to watch this drama than Lee Min Ho’s drama! Love Nam Joo Hyuk and Lee Sung Kyung. Hope this drama will get high ratings!

  11. 11 : Simon K Says:

    Unfortunate for the two lead actors, they go head to head against Lee Mon Ho and Jun Ji Hyun, it will be hard to get good TV rating but if the drama is good, internet following should be there, good luck.

  12. 12 : Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, novo drama de romance da MBC Says:

    […] Fonte: KoreanDrama […]

  13. 13 : san Says:

    Waiting to watch this. Love Nam Joo Hyuk. And I’m so glad Lee Sung Kyung got a lead role finally. She’s a really good actress. When she do a hateful character we really hate her. And the opposite as well. Fighting 🙂

  14. 14 : AlphaGirl Says:

    I know most people must be eagerly waiting for The Legend of the Blue Sea but I am excited for this show too. I loved Nam Joo Hyuk in Scarlet Heart Ryeo and I am looking forward to see him in a completely different avatar.

  15. 15 : freedomdemon Says:

    wish that this drama can be more long~!!!!!
    also wish that it have much season~!!!!! ^^Y
    had watch the 1st episode without subtitle, so nice~!!!!!! (**O **)
    exciting for the next episode~!!!!!

    also love the main characters so much~!!!!!! (>v <)

    thank you~!!!!!

  16. 16 : Susy indrayanti Says:

    Sorry…but the line is so predictable.

  17. 17 : Hannah Says:

    Watched the 1st episode and love it so much! It’s such a waste that this drama has low rating because it airs the same time as LMH’s drama. I watched both and I don’t mean to compare, but I feel like I love this drama more!

  18. 18 : lala Says:

    @Hannah I agree with you this drama is way better than the other one.

  19. 19 : Hannah Says:

    I like how Nam Joo Hyuk’s character here is so cheeky!! Love all the cast here except for the second heroin. She seems too old to be a college student in a Junior year.

    Nevertheless, WFKBJ fighting!!! I hope people would realize how this drama is actually a good drama though underrated.

  20. 20 : prittee Says:

    wow! i enjoyed watching the 1st two episodes… very entertaining…chubs so funny and reverse so cute… the lead stars look good together… looking forward for the next episodes…

  21. 21 : prittee Says:

    @hannah i agree with you… i think weightlifter is more interesting than legend but what can we do.. lmh is such a big star.. but i bet this drama going to be very interesting to watch…

  22. 22 : Hannah Says:

    @prittee Well it’s find if Nam Joo Hyuk is not that popular. Less competition from fan girls. Lol. Lee Min Hoo is kinda overrated tho. Haha

  23. 23 : nohiredkimchi Says:

    Why is finding love always required for a drama.

  24. 24 : AhYoona Says:


  25. 25 : glizt&glamour Says:

    this is a fun drama but there are fans who ruins it by such comparing this to other drama and worst they still manage to keep bragging it up here… @Hannah can you just talk about this drama without talking about the other. can’t you see this is Weightlifing fairy kim bok joo you Idk why you ca’t just focus here without mentioning about the other.

  26. 26 : glizt&glamour Says:

    people like you are the reason why fanwars are existing. sigh!

  27. 27 : Hannah Says:

    Did you read my previous comment?
    Let me re-write for you: I watched both, and I don’t mean to compare, but I feel like I love this drama more!

    How is it watching both dramas, but loving this drama more would create fanwars? When is it in here, I can’t express which drama I like better? It’s an open place, everyone can say whatever they want. *peace*

  28. 28 : Hannah Says:

    Excited for ep 5 since the preview looks interesting!

  45. 45 : Gina Says:

    Bless for the troll above. Im crying 😂😂😂

  46. 46 : Dennis Says:

    AMAZING Love it, its so fluffy and light.

  47. 47 : Gina Says:

    Lee Sung Kyung is so pretty! Of course she’s the weightlifting fairy! I respect her as an actress bcause she actually gained 5kg, cut her long hair and goes to weightlifting training for months to make the character real. Coming from a slender model, it’s respectable how she’s done her best to become a good actress. Love her since CITT. She & Kang Joon were like power siblings in CITT!

  48. 48 : san Says:

    This drama is my weekly happy pill!! 🙂
    Love it. 🙂
    Whenever I see Nam Joo Hyuk, one thing comes to my mind “Wow, that guy is so handsome” 😀

  49. 49 : Hannah Says:

    Ugh Si Ho is getting more and more annoying. Hate her so much!

  50. 50 : Gina Says:

    The scene in ep 7 when Bok Joo and Joon Hyung dance at the club is so cute! Love them both together!!

    Bok Joo is so pretty. LSK is so pretty, can’t help having a girl crush on her.

  55. 55 : Rya Says:

    Joon Hyung & Bok Joo are so cute 🤗 this drama is definitely ma happy pill every week. 😆

  56. 56 : Eyin Says:

    Hahaha, laughing at all this comments. More hilarious than this drama. Looking at the lowest rates, make me much LOL-LOL-LOL. They should make it short episodes cause nothing much to tell about their melo and does everyone notice Weightlifting athletics not well selected expect Kim Bok Joo who tall and only fake body plump, others not even to the standard of athlete images, skinny, fat and short are been trained in Weightliftting sport no different from street-kids. Huhuhu……

  76. 76 : Peyutnduy Says:

    Sooooo hillariously entertaining!
    I like it. The chemistry is good.

  77. 77 : Lampein Says:

    @bingsu true i totally agree to your opinion…they are a good actors but there is only one mistake in actress body shes so skinny the athletes that i know as a body builder are not the same….maybe they should find.another actress whose body build just lika a body builder so that this drama gonna look like a real one.so hilarious to watch in other ways not convincing….just my opinion also

  78. 78 : anne Says:

    i prefer watching this than the legend of ..

  79. 79 : Lampein Says:

    So enjoy watching it up to last episode just dont compare to.other dramas…were are all have different opinions and likes.

  81. 81 : lala Says:

    They’re such a cute couple ehh i’m even jealous.

  82. 82 : Lala Says:

    I don’t care about this drama being not realistic as bok joo doesn’t look like a weightlifter. I mean come on, it’s called drama anyway. I love the storyline. Bok Joo and Joon Hyung couple is so cute! Like people said here, it’s my weekly happy pill as well.

  83. 83 : Hannah Says:

    Two thumbs up for Nam Joo Hyuk’s acting in here! The way Joon Hyung burst out to his aunt is way too sad. I cried watching that scene. I also love how KBJ and JJH relationship works both ways. It’s time for Bok Joo to support Joon Hyung. Kim Bok Joo and Jung Joon Hyung is my current favorite OTP!

  84. 84 : amber Says:

    so many cute and sweet scenes 🙂

  85. 85 : pritteecy Says:

  96. 96 : 크리스 Says:

    Don’t care ’bout the ratings. This drama is really nice to watch. At first I thought that it’s just a waste of time. Well that was when I saw the ratings, but It’s not. It’s worth watching even though It’s my first time seeing the lead actor and actress. If you want to relax and have some fun you must try this one.

  97. 97 : May Says:

    Every week I’d wait for the eps to be released impatiently ,, every week I was super excited ,, every episode was cheerful , heartfelt , amazing as the previous ! I totally loved this show I adored it with all my heart!! I can’t see why the ratings are so low comparing to the low quality story with famous actors …EVERYONE WATCH THIS SHOW YOU WON’T REGRET IT!!

  98. 98 : RUBY PLACHETA Says:


  99. 99 : Ica Says:

    I think this drama is interesting, very entertain. Chemistry between lead actor and actress very good. Happy, exciting to watch them. Watch this drama make me happy. Romance happyness sadness in this story teach how to be adult with personal problem in life. I think this drama is worth to watch. I dont understand why this drama have low rating. I came from outside korea. Nam joo hyuk become popular. He so tall, handsome, sweet smile, and his acting are growing better than in moon lovers. I think he can become more popular in the future

  100. 100 : Shayne Says:

    May I know which amusement park they went to? I tried to search for it but cannot find.

    Thank you.

  101. 101 : Sirk19 Says:

    Gaaad! Im watching it for the 3RD TIME ALREADY!! can’t get over with this drama! Dont care wether it has low ratings in sokor but it is soooooo popular in international fans like me.. LEE SUNG KYUNG IS VERY VERSATILE! (she’s one of my fav k-actress now) I’d never imagined any other actress who fit the role as Bok Joo, same as Nam Joo Hyuk.. #swagcouple please be real! 😍😍😍😍😍😍 VERY VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  102. 102 : Rose Says:

    This show is sooo good. Loved it. The story line was not complicated, easy going and fun. I loved Nam Joo-Hyuk’s character. He did a great job with his role. He deserved the Best New Actor’s Award. He is a very nice looking young man.

    It is so nice to see a fun and pleasant show without all the revenge plotting that goes on in most of the dramas. Congratulations to the writer, the entire production crew and all the actors.

    This show was so fun to watch, enjoyable and looked forward to each episode. It was so funny in Ep 8 when he gave Jae-Yi the speaker for his birthday and he moved Bok-Joo’s plant out of the way to put the speaker in the same spot. And he was running to the school’s dr.’s office to protect Bok-Joo as his brother was bringing food to the dr. etc. etc. And he says “his feet were going to burn off” as he was doing so much running around, The writer’s came up with some really funny lines.

    Unfortunately all good things come to an end.

  103. 103 : David Says:

    Thought this was a great show. Funny and good cast. Easy going show to watch, no dramatic revenge scenes, nothing like the typical K-drama.

    I noticed some comments about the weightlifting team with their sizes. There are not very many people in Korea, or at least from the shows I have seen, that are heavy. Most of them are on the extreme thin size, both men and women. I don’t know of too many women actresses that are heavy. I can think of two or three at the most. Maybe they did not fit the personality of what the writer/production team were looking for.

    The only thing the writer could have come up with was maybe a different sport where the athletes did not have to be heavy.

    Bok Joo as a young child was on the plump side. But Kim Ye Joon who played Jung Joo Hyung as a little boy was extremely thin. I noticed in the scene where he gave Bok Joo candy in the school room on her desk, and he had such a cute smile on his face when he was watching her eat the candy, his little arms were so thin. Kim Ye Joon is an adorable cute little boy.

  104. 104 : hazel song Says:

    As of this writing, I already plan to re-watch the entire series simply because I haven’t gotten over it yet. It was such a feel-good story with adorable leads that left me with all the feels of being young and being in love. Nam joo hyuk and Lee sung kyung really look good together and upon knowing that they are also close friends in real life, I joined the group of people shipping for them. 🙂 The OST is also one of my favorites, and I’ve lost count of the times I ‘ve listened to it. I’m looking forward to their next projects, and if the rumor is true that Nam joo hyuk was chosen as lead for the Bride of the water god, then it’s obviously next on my to-watch list. :))))

  105. 105 : OK OK OK Says:

    Just started watching after finishing Seo In Guk dramas I remember you, Shopping King Louie, 38 Squad.

    Now at ep 3
    I agree this drama also very nice to watch. 😛

  106. 106 : Rose Says:

    I found this on the web when you put the drama title in — it shows scenes from his episode. And one behind the scenes which is not subbed

    More Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo videos

    Sorry to see this show end. It was very enjoyable and so funny. Just a very nice show to watch.

    Congratulations to the entire cast and the production team. Job well done.

    I had no expectation when I started watching this. I usually get bored after 4-6 episodes but I love this drama. It’s not the usual kdrama and the characters and conflicts are so real, it became my fave drama. Love the chemistry between LSK and NJH and how they developed Book Joo and Joon Hyung’s relationship, too. I’ll have a hard time finding a new fave drama because of this.

    One of the best kdrama I’ve watched even if its underrated in Korea. It’s very light and refreshing. romance + sports = daebak

    Best drama ever for me,it’s realistic,simple and memorable.. The Main Characters have truly the chemistry. It’s really entertaining. I am expecting more film that Lee sung kyung and Nam joo Hyuk will work together their chemistry is really different among others actors,

    Vote Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo for the top 8.

  126. 126 : Kay Says:

    This is a simple and low key sort of drama. At little slow at times, but Nam Joo Hyuk and Lee Sung Kyung are all kinds of cute together. So it has a sweet romance and an inspirational story.
