Synopsis

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.

    Bingsu 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……

    I like it. The chemistry is good.

  27. 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

  32. 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.

  33. 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!
