Even with bad hair and a small apparent weight gain (or is it just the clothes?), Lee Sung Kyung is still beautiful. The actress will star in her first leading role for the MBC drama “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Ju.”
The show is based on a true story of Olympic gold medalist Jang Mi Ran, who is weightlifter. The series will be set and take place on a college campus, and will tell a story of athletes who are trying to make it in the professional arena. I am not one for an athletic type of drama, but his one actually looks interesting.
This is a different type of role for Lee Sung Kyung. Aside from playing an entitled brat in most of her dramas, we have yet to see her in a role such as this. It will be entertaining at the very least to see what she does with this.
“Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Ju” wil premier November 23rd, after “Shopping King Louis” finishes its run.
