8 Reasons to Watch: Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo
Im so sad that this k-drama ended and so in love with it that i needed to make a 8 reasons to watch post. First things first, sorry for any english mistakes. Hope you enjoy this post! :)
There are some spoilers in this post, especially in item #3, but nothing too revealing.
1. The Main character
When you see a strong female character in a k-drama, she’s often faking her personality or just being rude. Kim Bok Joo is a strong character and she’s still a human being. She lifts wheight, dedicating herself and putting her strenght on it and then she goes home to have fun and drink with her best friends. The main character show us that you can be strong and empowered and still live normally. That’s why we like her so much: she’s a female symbol of strength and still a young women who wants to enjoy her life and have some fun.
2. The swag couple
This is one of the cutest couples I’ve ever seen. In the end of the drama you’ll just be thinking “Omg, I wish I had a relationship like this!”. Bok Joo and Joon Hyung discover their first love in the peak of their lives, when they can do anything, like Bok Joo said in the last episode. That’s what makes this couple so special: their relationship is full of love, youth and affection.
3. Portrays Serious Issues
When I got to know the girls from Rythmic Gymnastics, I got really sad. They had to private themselves from eating in order to achieve perfection. Look at that: Song Si Ho even developed eating disorders. The scene which some girls break a scale in the middle of the night might seem fun to some, but to me it was really sad. We need to give more attention to Song Si Ho: to me, she’s one of the best characters in this drama.
4. It makes you laugh
Sun Ok, Nan Hee and Bok Joo = FRIENDSHIP GOALS! I died watching their moments together, not to mention the question “Do you like Messi?” who make me laugh loud. This drama is surrounded by funny scenes (like when they go to the amusement park) and the sound effects in the background, like the guy saying WHAT? just make them even funnier, don’t ask me why.
5. And even cry!
The whole thing with Joon Hyung and his mom are so sad. Family bonds make a great presence in this drama: you most certainly will get emotional seeing how much Joon Hyung’s uncles and Book Joo’s father try hard to provide everything to their children.
6. Lovely soundtrack
Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo doesn’t have a big soundtrack, but it’s lovely and pleasing to listen from the first song to the last. The theme to all songs is “First Love”, and they’re going to make you remember the main couple’s sweet moments together. My favorite song is From Now On! What’s yours?
7. Amazing cast
This drama’s cast is amazing! They are not only good actors: they had lots of fun recording Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo and became close to each other. Nam Joo Hyuk even said he want’s to play a main couple with Lee Sung Kyung again! Isn’t that cute?
8. It is unique.
Weightlifting Kim Bok Joo is not only about love: it shows us the power of true friendship, working hard to achieve your goals in life and a family who always tries to keep you happy. You’ll end this drama missing all the characters, and I’m not even kidding. This drama also teaches us that we need to enjoy our youth, the most beautiful phase of our lives. Kim Bok Joo is a young girl, and she’s just like us in various points. That’s the story portrayed in this k-drama: a young life, lived with lots of swag.

You are awakened by the sound of coughing filling the room. Fluttering your eyes open, you shut them tight again when the sunlight shines into your eyes. Inching them open again, you get yourself adjusted to the brightness of the day. The sound of coughing fills your ears once more, reminding yourself why you’re awake to begin with. Sitting up, you turn to him only to see that he’s already awake and sitting on the edge of the bed.
“Babe, what’s wrong?” You ask, your hand resting on his shoulder. The thinness of the white tee he’s wearing isn’t enough to conceal the excessive heat radiating from his body. Your hand flinches away at the sudden contact. It makes its way to his head, confirming your suspicions.
“You’re coming down with a fever,” you say, your face scrunching up. He takes hold of your hand and moves it towards his cheek before bringing it to his lips as he kisses your palm. With half-lidded eyes, he turns to look at you.
