Upcoming MBC youth sports drama “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo” has confirmed leads Nam Joo Hyuk and Lee Sung Kyung.

The drama is a college campus coming-of-age story that focuses on athletes, and their struggles while pursuing their dreams. The plot is inspired by the real life story of Olympic weightlifting champion Jang Mi Ran, about an awkward girl’s growth after only known weightlifting her entire life.

Both leads are currently popular rookie actors, and while they look amazing visually and have already posed together as a couple in pictorial shoot, it’s hard to imagine tall and thin Lee Sung Kyung passing as a national weightlifter, but I’m staying positively optimistic.

“Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo” comes from writer of “High School King of Savvy” and “Oh My Ghostess“, and will be directed by PD Oh who did “7th Grade Civil Servant“.It is expected to premiere in November.
