Her reactions and antics made the drama all the funnier. This role is a stark difference from her past characters in Cheese in the Trap and Doctors.

  1. There are cameos from many amazing actors!

Right from the first episode, there is a cameo from Madtown Jota. Following episodes we have appearances from Lee Jong Suk, Jisoo, Girls’ Generation Seohyun and recently it has also been reported that Kim Seul Gi would be making an appearance!

  1. The supporting characters are really funny!!

Not only are the chemistry between Joo Hyuk and Sung Kyung fun to watch, the friendship of the whole cast is pretty cute to watch too! From the girly Nan Hee (played by Cho Hye Jung) to the tough Seon Ok (played by Lee Joo Young) and the clingy Tae Kwon (played by Ji Il Joo), you will have a fun time watching their hilarious antics!

  1. Their love story is simple

One thing I really hate about dramas is the complicated love story between the two main characters. But in this drama, the development of their relationship is really easy to watch. From friends to more than friends, it will definitely leave you wanting more.

  1. No evil characters

Sure there are a few annoying characters, but none that are blood-boiling evil. Everyone is generally very human in this drama.

  1. Kim Bok Joo and Jeong Joon Hyung are just too cute together!!!

I am glad that I started the drama pretty late because I would probably die inside waiting for each episode each week. It is just that addictive!! The friendship between them initially leaves everyone wanting to have a close guy/girl friend like theirs. When their friendship eventually blossomed, it’ll have you cringing (in a good way) at their every move!

I’d definitely recommend this drama to those that love school romance drama! Not only is the show hilarious, it touches on issues like future career, achieving your dreams, overcoming challenges and the importance of friendship!

You guys have 1 week to catch up on the drama as the last episode will air next Wednesday. So hurry up and get on the Weightlifting Fairy, Kim Bok Joo bandwagon so we can start spazzing and go crazy together!
