Jo Soo-hyang to stir up trouble in Weightlifting Fairy

Actress Jo Soo-hyang (Who Are You–School 2015) has been cast in the new MBC Wednesday-Thursday drama Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju, joining the likes of Lee Sung-kyung (Doctors), Nam Joo-hyuk (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo), Kyung Su-jin (Bluebird’s House), and Lee Jae-yoon (Oh Hae-young Again). Inspired by Olympic gold medalist Jang Mi-ran, Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju is a new coming-of-age sports drama about a young and ambitious female weightlifter, played by Lee Sung-kyung, and her stormy first love.

Jo Soo-hyang will take on the role of Soo-bin, a rising star collegiate rhythmic gymnast. She’ll compete against her number-one ranked rhythmic gymnast rival Song Shi-ho (played by Kyung Su-jin), and lock horns in a chilling war with the heroine, weightlifter Bok-ju. Jo has been learning rhythmic gymnastics for the role.

She doesn’t need any lessons on how to be evil though. Her last drama was Who Are You–School 2015, where she played the terrifying resident mean girl with flair and raw talent, and became a young actress to watch out for. She most recently appeared in the dark supernatural thriller film The Priests. Her addition to the drama will mean a heaping dose of trouble for our leads, but hopefully only in the best love-to-hate-her way.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju is written by Yang Hee-seung (Oh My Ghostess, High School King of Savvy) and directed by PD Oh Hyun-joong (Level 7 Civil Servant). Co-starring are Kim Jae-hyun (Modern Farmer), Jo Hye-jung (Cinderella and the Four Knights), and Jang Young-nam (Dazzling Temptation).

It’ll air on Wednesdays and Thursdays in November after the end of Shopping King Louis, the followup to W–Two Worlds, which recently ended its run this week.

YES GIRL, GET THESE ROLES.
I can say I have zero patience for dramas at the moment (I don't see myself watching one for a looooong time), but it's nice to see girls like her and Chae Soo Bin being recognized for their brilliant portraits of hating-worth antagonists.

Who are you: school 2015 reunion with nam joo hyuk..... Well I hope they give her more back story than just being pure evil like in school 2015 where she just tormented kim so hyun for no very good reason. I just got more interested in this drama because of her.

Omo I just love this actress! I use to dislike her (not the person cz I m sure she is awesome!, but the evil roles she's playing) and I saw a mini drama special with her! Guys, I totally recommend it to u ! Its "What is the ghost doing" with Lee joon and her, it's so touching and beautiful and you have to watch through the end to understand it all :) The best drama special for me so far!
