Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Ju is essentially the perfect youth romance show - filled with heart and encapsulating what it's like to live through your first crush.

For as much as the show is said to be about professional athletes, it's really more an ode to youth, friendships and struggling to find your feet while balancing crushes. The cast is amazing, filled with great friendships and chemistry. Lee Seong Gyeong, while a little hard to view as a weightlifter, nails her role as Kim Bok Ju. There's no concern about looking pretty and she fully embraces all the awkwardness that makes Bok Ju loveable. Nam Ju Hyeok isn't as great, but he plays Jun Hyeong as a lovable puppy - bolstered by a greatly written character. The entire show, from the directing to the writing, is whimsical but heartening, funny but filled with emotional beats that make for a story everyone knows and has lived through.

A definite recommend for any fan of youth and romance.

I m so freaking angry with her teachers and her father right now!!
They practically FORCED her to
up her weight class!

It s her body and she should be able to do whatever she wants with it

why is no one concerned that Bok Ju just spent $600 for something she didn't even need?
for me 600 dollars is quite a lot of money and she literally had to empty her bank account and use the money her father gave her to find that money. Doesn't she need that money to idk? live??? pay her tuition??? smth????
and I can't find it in myself to like her or any of the characters really.
I expected more of this drama than it being a high school drama where everyone just drinks.
i'll keep watching in case it gets better magically, but i'll prbbly drop it. *sigh*

I love it so very much!!! <3 It's just the ending that's got me disappointed, you know, it was no big deal at all.

O dorama mais fofa que já vi em toda a minha vida. De verdade, eu devorei ele em 3 dias e eu estou apaixonada loucamente pelos protagonista além de ter os personagens secundários mais divertidos e amáveis, que foi um ponto que achei super positivo, tem doramas que não exploram os personagens secundários como deveriam ):
Eu surto totalmente com o romance da Bok joo e do Joon Hyung, ah eu queria ter um namorado como ele ;;;;;

A trilha sonora bem leve para combinar com o clima perfeito do dorama.
Eu super recomendo para todos, é um amorzinho. Sem palavras <3
5/5 <3
