[ 이성경 ]
Before she was known as the Weightlifting Fairy, Kim Bok Joo, she was a top model and actress who is very outgoing, crazy and very fun to be with. She is under YG Entertainment [for acting] and YGK-Plus [for modeling]. Before we move on, here are the basic facts about Lee Sung Kyung:
Birthday: August 10, 1990
Zodiac sign: Leo
Height: 5'9" ft
Blood type: B
Education: Dongduk Woman's University
'Sung Kyung' in English means 'Bible' and that's the reason behind her Instagram username. Other than her nickname 'Bible Lee', her other nickname is also 'Kkapkyung' because of her bright personality. She is very talented not just in modeling and acting, but in singing and playing piano as well.

If you want to see more of Lee Sung Kyung, try watching her other dramas if you haven't yet while waiting for her next project. Here's a list where you can watch videos and dramas of Lee Sung Kyung:
1. It's Okay, That's Love (2014)
Sung Kyung's character here brings fun in the drama because of her feisty attitude as a high schooler who works at a coffee shop to earn money. You'll definitely like her here because her craziness will make you laugh and see her other side [well, more like her real side].
She was also famous as one of Lee Kwang Soo's [from Running Man] favorite leading actress because of their kissing scene in this drama. They are very close until now and you'll love their friendship as well!
2. Flower of the Queen / Queen's Flower (2015)
She plays the daughter of the main character here. Her name in this drama is Kang Yi Sol, who was abandoned by her mother when she was still a baby but was later adopted. Another side of Sung Kyung was revealed in this drama so if you have time, go watch it. It has 50 episodes all in all. It's worth the watch! This was her first drama in MBC before Weightlifting Fairy, Kim Bok Joo.
3. Cheese in the Trap (2016)
The famous Baek In Ha was born in this drama because of her craziness and obsession towards Yoo Jung [Park Hae Jin's character]. She is the twin sister of Baek In Ho [Seo Kang Joon's character]. She is very obsessed with shopping as well and would do everything to get some money on her hands to satisfy her craving for shopping.
Also, Nam Joo Hyuk was in this drama too! Oh, destined to be together indeed! HAHA.
4. Doctors (2016)
From being a top high school student to a doctor, it is the role Sung Kyung partakes in this drama. She was the Jin Seo Woo who had so many grudges towards Yoo Hye Jung [Park Shin Hye's character] for getting everything she wanted. Her acting in here was superb and everyone complimented her, so I suggest, you better watch now if you haven't or else you're missing out.
5. Weightlifting Fairy, Kim Bok Joo (2016-2017)
I bet you know who she is and what her character is in this drama. What else can I say? Chemistry: 1000/10, Story: 10000/10 and everything else was perfection. This was Sung Kyung's break out as the main character in a drama after being mostly a lead/supporting actress. This was the drama where Sung Kyung shined and everyone knew about her. Her popularity boosted up domestically and internationally.
And thus, the famous line "Do you like Messi?" was born.
