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.

quite an overhyped drama!! i had some issue with it.. found some parts boring!! but it's good and have its moments.

Cute! Nam Joo Hyuk was flawless and there is enough sweetness here to give you cavities. It’s a lighthearted youth drama and it serves its purpose as such...nothing too substantial although we do get a bit of character growth and development. To be honest, the character of Bok Joo annoyed me a bit...she was quite immature, even for a sheltered, inexperienced college student (I constantly felt like she was maybe 16) which is the reason this drama didn’t quite own my heart and soul. Definitely go watch it though, if you haven’t already.

Some of the comedic bits were hilarious, but overall I didn't find this series worthy to write home about.

It did feel to me something was bit off with this show at times and it felt bit childish but it was cute and fun drama still and overall feelings it delivered were positive. In retrospect it seems even more nice I think, easy to overlook some issues drama might have had.

Bok Ju and Jun Hyeong are one of the cutest couple in kdramaland :D It's a solid drama with a lot of adorable scenes. I liked the fact that the writer let viewers better know not only main couple but also supporting cast.

This drama, sadly, had a lot of issues, the main couple NOT being one of them. Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk are really cute and all, but the filler stories were boring and didn't contribute much to the story so I ended up skipping a lot of them.
In addition, I started feeling bad for Shi Ho
because she was slowly dying throughout most of the drama and no one cared
. WTF.
And Bok Joo getting beat with a mop handle by her coach because she was embarassed/didn't want to share private information? More WTF.
Let's not ignore the fact that the writers nearly forgot about Jung Joon Hyung's problems. Overall, not a drama I will be recommending to others, unless they just want to skip past scenes like I did.

(It was nice that Nam Joo Hyuk's co-stars from Scarlet Heart guest starred on the show though.)
