weightlifting fairy kim bok joo@first script reading
Joo Hyukie!!! He goes from fair, cultured prince to tanned, hunky pro swimmer for MBC’s Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. The drama is centred on sports and youth, with Lee Sung Kyung taking on the titular role. They have worked together before a few times and are label mates at YG, so they should have some kind of rapport already in place. It’s good that Nam Joo Hyuk is gaining exposure at the various networks, getting involved in different productions. He has done turns at tvN, KBS and SBS – this is his second time featuring in a MBC production, the first being last year’s Glamorous Temptation with Kim Sae Ron. Joo Hyukie is already making me sigh in these stills…sooooo cute! The drama kicks off in December.
