Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo is an unconventional name for a Korean drama. In an industry filled with romance and subtle heroines, fairy weightlifting is something unique, isn’t it? Well, the show is about a group of college friends. The show is a sports genre and is inspired by the Korean weightlifter Jang Mi-ran. It aired in November of 2016; every Wednesday and Thursday. The series caught up well with the younger audience but has a lower viewership with only 4.6%. It, however, has some great reviews by the young and old. This was one of the few shows to gain much popularity but not enough attention. It also got popular overseas, like in the Philippines. Will there be Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo Season 2?
