How to describe my love for this series in words? How? Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo was a breath of fresh air. It was refreshing, comfortable, adorable, heartwarming, hilarious, and I just felt myself get so attached to the characters and story.
It has so many lovely messages and takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions staying consistently good each episode. The acting was beautiful and the characters are extremely relatable. The read more story focused on a variety of things without being overdramatic or all over the place. It also really delved into the characters background stories without focusing too much on one lead over the other.
You will not only adore main leads Kim Bok Joo and Joonhyung but also sob over their amazing chemistry. You will love the weightlifting team, family, and friends. You will find yourself laughing so hard, smiling over fluff, and getting upset all in the right scenes.
I would find myself watching this drama over again for sure it just made me smile through every single episode ;_;
