Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo will be back with episode 3, next Wednesday, November 23, at 10pm KST on MBC. The sequel could focus on the blossoming romance between Kim Bok-joo and Jang Joon-hyung.
The mini-series opened to positive reviews with its interesting campus romance and the stunning performance of the cast members. While some of the viewers described it as a refreshing drama, some have commented about the eye-catching performances of Lee Sung-kyung and Nam Joo-hyuk.
The fans messages ranged from, "The drama is entertaining and the actors are all refreshing, I hope that it goes well" to "The drama is more fun than I thought. The main characters' dad, mom, the profs... they are all good actors..."
The period drama opened up by introducing the lead characters and focused on their relationships. The show concluded its second episode by teasing a love triangle between Lee Jae-yoon and the two young athletes.
The swimmer started to develop some feelings for his childhood friend after realising about her hardships. In the meantime, the weightlifter falls for obesity doctor after he helped her in keeping back the dressing table.
The trailer suggests that Lee Sung-kyung's character will be disappointed after her first meeting with the doctor, but she might fall in love with her childhood friend. In the video, the two are seen fighting with an elderly man at a restaurant.
Later on, while they are alone at the rooftop, the female lead asks her friend, "Did you fight because of me?" and he just smiles in return. Are they falling in love with each other? If so, then things are likely to turn for the worst, since his former lover rhythmic gymnast Kyung Soo-jin is now the roommate of his childhood friend.
