Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju: Episode 4

Bok-ju is at an interesting crossroads in her life — she’s got the potential to be a professional weightlifter, but she’s at an age where she wants things like love and romance. She’s young and new at all this, and her methods of gaining love may not be the best way to go about it, especially when those methods could jeopardize her career goals. What’s a girl to do when her lifelong dream clashes with her desire for something new?

EPISODE 4: “Her double life”

Bok-ju goes to sign up for Jae-yi’s weight loss program, though it looks painful to let go of that much cash all at once. She changes into a gown, and in her first meeting with Jae-yi, he says she’s already very healthy. He explains that her weight is mostly muscle, and that her weight is pretty normal.

He says that most people look at idols or skinny people, and think that anything else is “fat,” which makes him feel bad as a doctor. Bok-ju talks about a fad diet Nan-hee went on once, and Jae-yi says that those diets nearly always fail. He plans to get Bok-ju healthier slowly and carefully, and she agrees.

He holds out his hand to shake on it, but Bok-ju is self-conscious about the calluses on her hands, so she smacks his hand instead. Jae-yi suggests they move to the bed, which makes Bok-ju sit up in alarm, but he only means that he needs to do an ultrasound. Ha.

She lies on the table, shooting nervous glances at Jae-yi, and stiffens when he needs to touch her stomach. She eventually allows it, though she looks like she’s about to explode. He’s gentle, and even notices Bok-ju’s discomfort, and pulls the blanket up to cover her a little more.

Jae-yi walks Bok-ju out after her appointment, and tells her to change her diet slowly. She remembers that she still has his umbrella and promises to bring it to her next appointment.

Bok-ju walks home in a happy daze, and stops at a street vendor’s table to look at hair decorations. The vendor suggests she try on a red barrette which looks really pretty, so she buys it. She sees the vendor making beaded charms, and wonders if it would be appropriate to give Jae-yi a gift as thanks when she returns his umbrella.

During practice, the rhythmic gymnastic coach rakes Shi-ho over the coals for gaining weight. She despairs that Shi-ho isn’t committed, since she won’t go to Russia for training or maintain her weight, and Shi-ho bites back her frustration and just says that she’ll try harder.

Rival Soo-bin and her two cohorts are in the restroom sneaking candy, and Soo-bin mentions how Shi-ho is acting strange lately, and even barged into the boys’ dorm crying yesterday. They wonder if she’s cracking from not making the national team, and Soo-bin says that Shi-ho is getting too old for the sport and won’t ever return to top form.

She also tells her friends that Shi-ho’s parents can’t afford to support her, but before she can go into detail, Shi-ho comes out of a nearby stall. Whoops. Shi-ho says it’s true that she went to the boys’ dorm, but denies having cried. She tells Soo-bin in an ice-cold voice not to worry about her family business, and leaves Soo-bin shaking in her wake.

Shi-ho angrily buys a soft drink and starts to gulp it down, but stops and throws it away. She runs outside to throw up in the bushes, where Dr. Go sees her and offers her handkerchief. She recognizes Shi-ho and tells her that it’s okay she didn’t make the national team, but Shi-ho just excuses herself back to practice.

Bok-ju makes a wish in the fountain on her way back to the dorm that night, and Joon-hyung sneaks up behind her and scares ten years off her life. She nearly decks him, and he points out that most girls react by cringing, but she comes out fighting.

Joon-hyung sees the bag Bok-ju is carrying, the gift she’s thinking of making for Jae-yi, and she hides it behind her back. He gets a little handsy grabbing for it, then backs off when she yells at him for wanting to see it. He apologizes that he keeps forgetting she’s a woman. Dude, just stop talking.

He follows her back to the dorms, acting like he’s not trying to rile her up every time she whirls to glare at him. She finally tells him that a “friend” borrowed something from a guy, and is giving him a gift to thank him. She asks if that’s okay, and Joon-hyung says it’s fine as long as it’s not something the “friend” made.

Bok-ju asks what’s wrong with handmade gifts, and Joon-hyung explains that they mean the girl was thinking of the guy while she was making it. If the two aren’t close, that can make the guy uncomfortable.

Bok-ju goes home and opens the beading kit she bought, glad that she didn’t just make a huge mistake. So she keeps it simple, and just writes a note to include with the umbrella, per Joon-hyung’s suggestion.

Shi-ho comes into their room while Bok-ju gets a text confirming her next appointment, and notes that Bok-ju looks pretty happy. Shi-ho thinks Bok-ju must be dating someone, though Bok-ju denies it.

Bok-ju hears from her friends Nan-hee and Seon-ok that Shi-ho went to the boys’ dorm, but Bok-ju is more surprised to hear that Shi-ho used to date Joon-hyung. Her friends point out that he’s cute and popular, but Bok-ju says a guy should be mature.

Their sunbae Sang-chul yells at them for talking instead of working out, and for not cleaning the equipment after using it. Team captain Woon-ki breaks up the argument and takes responsibility for not training the girls better. Sang-chul takes offense to him letting them off so easily, and gets even angrier when Woon-ki runs off to take a call while he’s still talking.

Bok-ju scarfs down her lunch in order to make it to her appointment with Jae-yi in time, while her friends vent about the sunbaes cracking down on them. She runs to her room to look for something to wear that isn’t black or grey, and runs to the clinic excitedly. She stops and puts the red barrette in her hair, then goes in.

Bok-ju gives Jae-yi the umbrella back, and she’s thrilled when he notices her barrette and says it’s pretty. She’s disappointed when she hasn’t lost any weight yet, but Jae-yi assures her that it’s still early.

He asks her major, but she doesn’t want to tell him she’s a weightlifter for fear he’ll think her unfeminine. She sees a statue on his desk of a man holding a cello, and blurts out that she’s a cellist. Jae-yi guesses that’s how she got so muscular, carrying around such a heavy instrument.

He chatters excitedly about how much he loves classical music, and Bok-ju is saved from having to answer questions by her phone. It’s her dad, who says he’s bringing some chicken to her dorm, so Bok-ju quickly excuses herself and rushes out.

She runs as fast as she can, scared that her dad will run into her friends and find out where she’s been. She nearly collides with Joon-hyung on his bike, and begs him to give her a ride back to the dorm. He teases her about her barrette, pleased as punch to have her asking him for a favor, and agrees to take her.

He can barely pedal with Bok-ju flailing and whacking him in the back, and struggles to manage both their weights. He makes it to the dorm where she jumps off and runs inside, and from a little distance away, Shi-ho sees them together and looks surprised.

Bok-ju intercepts her dad in the dorm lobby and stops him, and he doesn’t understand why she’s so adamant that he doesn’t go to her room. She grabs the chicken and sends him on his way, relieved.

Joon-hyung has his first therapy session, and his therapist says his test results show that he’s under a lot of stress. He asks about the symptoms that Joon-hyung experiences on match days, and Joon-hyung says that his heart pounds, and everything around him gets muffled. Eventually he can’t hear anything, as if the world is muted.

He says that it usually happens during matches, but lately it’s happened during practice a few times. The therapist asks about any shocks or traumatic experiences, thinking it could be a panic disorder. Joon-hyung says that he can’t think of anything shocking, though something about his answer seems too casual.

The therapist notices too, and notes that Joon-hyung doesn’t like exposing his vulnerabilities. Joon-hyung says he’s not that complicated, but the therapist thinks that’s just denial, and says that patients like Joon-hyung are the hardest to treat.

Joon-hyung sits outside later, and thinks about what came to mind when the therapist asked about his first symptoms. He remembers being small and his mother drying his tears with her handkerchief, the postcards she sent from Canada, and then blank postcards he found in a drawer in his aunt’s desk. Awww, is his aunt sending the postcards?

Jae-yi joins him and asks how his session went. Joon-hyung says the doctor is very good, and Jae-yi gives him some encouragement and offers to give him a ride home. Joon-hyung sees the umbrella in a pretty bag in the car, and Jae-yi explains that he lent Joon-hyung’s umbrella to someone who returned it.

He says she’s just a patient, and swears he’s too professional to fall for a client. But Joon-hyung doesn’t believe him and asks if the girl is pretty, and Jae-yi admits that she is with a sheepish grin.

Joon-hyung’s roommate Tae-kwon notices the bag with the umbrella, and finds the card that Bok-ju included, unsigned. Joon-hyung reads it and sighs that Jae-yi has mesmerized another college girl.

Up in their room, Shi-ho tentatively asks Bok-ju how she knows Joon-hyung. Bok-ju says they went to the same elementary school, and confirms that she knows he and Shi-ho dated. Bok-ju sees Shi-ho stretching, and determinedly does her own exercises.

Team captain Woon-ki doesn’t show up for practice, so Sang-chul is instructed to lead the morning run. Coach Choi wonders what happened, and why Woon-ki would skip practice without calling her.

Bok-ju takes smaller portions than usual at lunch, then Joon-hyung swoops in and steals her lunch tray for himself. He makes a big deal out of her normal-sized portions, and plays keep-away with her tray, holding it up above her head while she jumps and screeches. He clearly enjoys the fact that she keeps bumping into him, but his fun stops abruptly when Shi-ho approaches them.

Shi-ho clamps onto Bok-ju’s arm as if they’re besties, and informs Joon-hyung that they’re roommates. She invites herself to eat with them, resulting in the most awkward meal ever. Shi-ho makes a show of putting food on Joon-hyung’s plate like a doting girlfriend, which annoys him so much that he leaves the table.

Shi-ho follows him outside, and asks why they can’t even share a civil meal. He says they can, he just doesn’t want to make the others uncomfortable. He calls her selfish and starts to walk away, but she stops him, saying, “Let’s get back together.”

Joon-hyung looks at Shi-ho like she’s lost her mind, and she agrees that it seems ridiculous since she broke up with him. She blames the pressure she was under at the time, with the national team trials coming up, and she wasn’t improving in her gymnastics.

In flashback we see that Shi-ho’s coach had berated her for her bad form and balance, and had yelled at her in front of the entire gymnastics team. She’d broken up with Joon-hyung that same day, saying that she wanted to focus on her training and didn’t have time for him.

Now Joon-hyung tells Shi-ho that she had her reasons, but he had just been disqualified from an important competition and was having a harder time than she was. He’d already felt like killing himself, then she’d broken up with him with no remorse.

Shi-ho admits that she was too impatient to comfort him and selfish, and apologizes. She promises that things will be different this time, but Joon-hyung says coldly that he’s not that easy, and walks away.

Bok-ju’s friends wonder what that was all about between Shi-ho and Joon-hyung, but Bok-ju’s too busy thinking about her next appointment with Jae-yi to pay attention. They spot Woon-ki heading back to the training room, and decide to lay low in case the coaches are angry with him.

It’s not the coaches that are upset, but the other sunbaes, especially Sang-chul. Woon-ki apologizes and asks them to let him talk to the coaches first, but Sang-chul accuses him of blowing them off, and yells that he owes them an explanation for skipping practice without notice.

Woon-ki says his reasons are personal, but Sang-chul thinks he’s been offered a spot on a semi-professional team, and his jealousy bubbles over. He calls Woon-ki a traitor, and grabs his phone away when it rings. Woon-ki finally explodes, and the argument escalates to shoving and yelling.

The coaches break up the fight, and force the entire team to hold push-up positions on the mat. Urgh, that looks painful. Coach Yoon is so furious that he has to leave the room, leaving Coach Choi to watch over them.

They hold the position for what looks like hours, until Coach Yoon comes back and releases them. They’re told to come outside, where they find that Coach Yoon has set up a huge picnic and is cooking mountains of meat for them.

Coach Yoon tells the team that he has diabetes, and isn’t supposed to eat meat. He does anyway, because he’d rather live a happy life than a healthy one. He tells the team to live that way too — do what makes them happy, rather than what will win a gold medal.

His words land solidly with the team, and both captain Woon-ki and sunbae Sang-chul humbly apologize. Coach Yoon adds that he knows the seniors are worried they won’t be offered spots on semi-professional teams when they graduate, but reminds them that the game isn’t over yet.

Later Woon-ki approaches the coaches in private, and says that he needs to leave again. Coach Yoon tells him to go, asking if everything is okay. Woon-ki assures them that things are fine, and Coach Yoon tells Coach Choi that they have to trust their team members.

All this makes Bok-ju late for her appointment with Jae-yi, and she rushes over as fast as she can. It’s pouring down rain, but she gave back the umbrella, so she’s soaked to the skin by the time she arrives at the clinic.

Jae-yi is playing classical music in his office, and he congratulates Bok-ju on losing a little weight since last time. He leans over her to explain her test results, and she goes starry-eyed to have him so close. He eventually notices that she’s not paying attention to what he’s saying, and Bok-ju fibs that she was listening to the music.

That gets Jae-yi yammering excitedly about music, and Bok-ju somehow manages to sound as if she knows what he’s talking about. She dries her face with a tissue, and Jae-yi leans in very close to pluck a piece of wet tissue off her face, flustering Bok-ju all over again.

Nan-hee and Seon-ok walk home in the rain, assuming that Bok-ju is out doing deliveries for her father. Seon-ok feels bad for eating so much fried chicken at Bok-ju’s father’s expense over the years, so they decide to head over to the restaurant and help out for a while.

Business is slow tonight, and Uncle Dae-ho is also wondering where Bok-ju is these days. Dad says that she’s training for a competition coming up, so he’s surprised when Nan-hee and Seon-ok show up without Bok-ju. At Dad’s confusion, Nan-hee fibs that Bok-ju said she was going to a sauna. She drags Seon-ok out, calling Bok-ju a sly fox.

They’re waiting when Bok-ju tries to sneak into her dorm room, and they demand to know where she’s been sneaking off to lately. Bok-ju stammers that it’s embarrassing, and Nan-hee stares at Bok-ju’s butt as she asks if she went to see a doctor for “it.”

They think her hemorrhoid has flared up again, HAHA, and Bok-ju decides to let them think that. They reassure her that it will get better soon, and Bok-ju cringes to herself, noting how easily the lies are coming to her now.

Safe in her dorm room, she pulls up the song Jae-yi was listening to in his office, and Shi-ho expresses surprise that Bok-ju likes classical music. She abruptly mentions Joon-hyung, saying that he’s charming and caring, but Bok-ju says she hasn’t noticed those things about him.

Shi-ho says that she wants to get back together with him, but that she broke his heart so he’s not open to the idea. She asks for Bok-ju’s help, saying that she seems close to Joon-hyung. Bok-ju insists that she isn’t, but by Shi-ho’s calculating expression, I don’t think she believes her.

Coach Yoon admits to Coach Choi that his speech to the kids was mostly bluff — he’s actually very worried they won’t get any offers to join semi-professional teams after graduation, and will end up unemployed. Coach Choi says that there are only a few competitions left for them to prove themselves, and tells Coach Yoon that she has an idea.

Aww, as it turns out, the reason Woon-ki missed practice is because his wife had a baby. Coach Yoon calls him with Coach Choi’s idea, which is to increase his muscle mass and compete in a higher weight class. Woon-ki says he’ll think about it, and Coach Choi has another idea.

They go to see Bok-ju’s dad with the idea that Bok-ju should also increase her weight class. It would make it easier for her to win a medal since there isn’t much competition in the higher weight class, and also allow the older girls in her current weight class a chance at medaling. Dad sighs, knowing that increasing weight is hard.

What Dad doesn’t know is that Bok-ju is trying to do the opposite and lose weight instead of gain it. Jae-yi offers her a reward for losing more weight, and tells her to think about what she wants as her reward. Bok-ju giddily runs out to change, and as she’s smiling at herself in a mirror, she hears from behind, “What are you doing here, Chubs?”

She turns in horror to see Joon-hyung standing there glaring at her accusingly. He realizes by her clothing that she’s a patient, but before he can get a coherent sentence out, Jae-yi joins them. Joon-hyung calls him “hyung,” and Bok-ju’s eyes grow huge as she realizes that her crush and her tormentor are related.

COMMENTS

Oh, this is about to get very complicated. Bok-ju likes Jae-yi, who does seem to at least acknowledge that she’s pretty and interesting. But as her doctor it would be highly unethical for him to date her, at least while she’s enrolled in his program, which I’m sure Bok-ju doesn’t realize. Plus, he’s about to find out that this is the girl his cousin likes, and I have a feeling that Jae-yi is the sort of man who would never go after the girl Joon-hyung likes in a million years. He feels badly enough about Joon-hyung’s difficult life, and I know he’d never do anything to cause Joon-hyung pain. He’s a good guy that way.

And poor Joon-hyung is going to be crushed to realize that Bok-ju likes Jae-yi. I still don’t think he even knows that he has feelings for her, because the way he reacts to her is so different than his relationship with Shi-ho. It’s like Bok-ju throws him back to his elementary school days and he can’t stop teasing her like a kid with his first crush. But as cute as Joon-hyung is when he’s giving her a hard time, Bok-ju clearly doesn’t appreciate it, and for that reason alone I’m ready for him to grow up a little when it comes to her. So maybe this will be the wake-up call Joon-hyung needs to start treating Bok-ju like the girl he cares for, instead of the “Chubs” he feels comfortable tormenting.

I’m very happy to see the show handling Bok-ju’s weight loss in a healthy manner, and that Jae-yi isn’t treating her as if she’s just overweight. A weightlifter would be mostly muscle, and require a very personally-tailored weight loss program, and it’s good that the show isn’t just acting as if Bok-ju is unhealthy and unattractive. Jae-yi repeatedly stressed that she’s already very healthy, and I loved how he even said that he hates that people see models and think that’s how they should look. The show is taking a very realistic but open-minded approach to the issues of weight and health, which I really appreciate.

In that vein, I do think that we’ll soon find out that Shi-ho probably has, or will develop, an eating disorder. Rhythmic gymnasts are universally very thin, and it’s a reality of the sport that athletes are often pressured about their weight to an unhealthy degree. We’ve already seen Shi-ho respond to stress by eating in an unhealthy way more than once, so I won’t be surprised if she goes off the deep end. It should be interesting to watch the contrast between Shi-ho and Bok-ju, as Shi-ho turns to unhealthy eating while Bok-ju is learning to eat and exercise in a balanced and safe environment.

I do think Shi-ho is starting to show her claws, now that she’s seen Joon-hyung and Bok-ju together. I still think that she doesn’t so much want Joon-hyung back for himself, but because he reminds her of a time when she was the queen of all she surveys — top gymnast at school, on the fast track to the national team, dating the popular hotshot swimming star. She seems as though she’s unraveling, and grasping for anything to bring back those days when everything was right in her world. Getting Joon-hyung back is one of those things. So it’s bad enough that he’s drawing a pretty clear line of refusal without any outside influences, but when Shi-ho sees that he actually likes someone else… well, it ain’t going to be pretty.

It was pretty brilliant of her to ask for Bok-ju’s help getting back with Joon-hyung — she simultaneously staked her claim, and put Bok-ju in a position where she’s helping Shi-ho rather than trying to get together with Joon-hyung herself. It would be a pretty effective way to stifle Bok-ju if she were interested in Joon-hyung, because now she’s sworn that she doesn’t see him that way. Later on, if Bok-ju does realize she likes Joon-hyung, she’ll remember that Shi-ho likes him and (Shi-ho hopes) not act on her feelings.

But right now I’m most worried about the conflict of interest that Bok-ju is about to face in regards to her personal and professional goals. It makes perfect sense to have her increase her muscle mass and move to a higher weight class, so that both she and the smaller girls have a better chance at winning. But she’s trying to lose weight for personal reasons, and she’s going to have to make a choice between her career, and her goals as a young woman who wants a guy to like her. It’s not going to be an easy choice, and everyone is going to pressure her to make the decision they feel is best. But it’s Bok-ju’s decision, and at this point I have no idea what to expect.

Bokju in love is awesomely cute. Watching her complicated first love is weirdly addicting haha.

Meanwhile shiho. This girl clearly has issues. She's so self centered and it's annoying how she thinks that she's the most pitiful in the world and other should follow what she wants. Come on, girl. Wake up.

Her character is just... I pity her with all her situation of gymnastic, maybe it's her willing to keep at least something she wants to have (i.e Joonhyung), but I can't help it, she's annoyingly selfish.

Me too - the actress is doing a good job. She could be coming off as a real bitch as written, but instead she seems like a kind girl at root who's become depressed and desperate.

I feel really bad for Shi Ho. Bok Ju's experience of a supportive family and coach is the opposite of Shi Ho's; if Bok Ju was having a hard time she'd get lots of help, but Shi Ho is being not just abandoned but humiliated by her coach, while her family has gambled on her to a crazy extent. Joon Hyung may have been the most normal, balanced relationship in her life and she didn't know it until she'd ruined it and he was gone.

I'm really enjoying Joon Hyung, unexpectedly. Yes, he's an immature hyper nutcase who plagues Bok Joo, but he does genuinely like her and try to modify his behavior when he realizes she really doesn't like it. He's a pain in the neck the same way a puppy would be - can't control himself and accidentally nips because he's just so excited to see Bok Joo.

+1 This is such an apt description of Joon Young.
Poor little puppy, all his defensive mechanisms fly to the
air when he sees BK, and he ends up casing and circling around her whenever he sees he sees her.

I'm surprised at how angry I felt about Bok Joo being pressured to give up one of her dreams to compete. Particularly since she will feel the pressure mostly to give her friends the chance of competing for medals not to increase her own chances necessarily. It's so hard to commit to losing weight but BJ has started.

Oh thank goodness Doc Hyung addressed the weight issues here. Weight isn't just fat. It's muscle mass as well. Unfortunately, Bok Joo pretended to be a cellist instead of a weightlifter, and Doc Hyung is going to assume it's okay to lose some muscle weight.... uh-oh...

Yes, if JY knew that BJ is a weightlifter then refunding her money would have been his first step but sadly he's into her lies. The next episode might be all about JH threatening BJ that he would reveal to his hyung that she is a weightlifter.

This drama is such a breath of fresh air - so light and fluffy and squee-worthy. I am starting to see the cracks in NJH's acting when he's with KSJ who is meant to be his painful first love, but he is sooo cute when with LSK who just brings back good memories that I can overlook it.

I love, love, love that this drama is so much about Bok Joo and her journey as much as it is about the romance. We get to know Bok Joo not only as a young woman in love, but as a daughter, a friend and a young adult with her own aspirations. LSK is killing it in this role, she is so freaking endearing which is a far cry from all her chic roles and pictorials. I am sooo impressed by her and cannot wait to see how her career grows.

Also, shout out to LJY because I've always liked him or had a good impression from him.. that even though he was the ex-bf in OHYA, I still felt for him. I'm glad he gets to play the good guy here. Looking forward to more cute scenes of him and Bok Joo. I'm curious though in terms of his profession - is it more like a nutritionist or doctor? Because if he's a nutritionist, does the whole doctor-patient conflict still apply?

This is exactly the kind of ship I needed in my life. I love that she has a crush on someone else and thinks he's annoying and I love that he obviously has a crush on her but has yet to realize it. I'm so excited to see how he'll realize it, how she'll fall for him and how they'll eventually get together. It's been a long time a drama made ship the main leads this hard. I definitely have a new otp.

Love the interactions between Bok-ju and Joon-hyung! They are so funny together especially that bicycle scene. The way he was struggling to pedal, it'd have been faster for Bok-ju to just run the rest of the way back to the dorm.

Can't wait to see the hijinks that ensue once Joon young realizes that Bok joo has a crush on his brother and becomes jealous, haha.

Also, I love how this show is handling issues about weight- from Jae-yi's analysis about Bok joo's weight to Shi ho's eating disorders (which I presume will be addressed very soon).

Sometimes love makes you become brave. Sometimes, it makes you do all stupid stuff, just to get the attention of that person.

Sometimes, it makes you want to pursue something different from your dreams. Sometimes love makes you make choices, which will change all the variables in the future.

Sometimes, it makes a person change so much, that it really is hard to live without. Some love last longer for eternity. Some love is fleeting.

Love is of different kinds, comes in different colors. It either brings out the best in them, or it maybe a lesson, or it may destroys your inner soul and fills with darkness and obsession. Sometimes love is so innocent, so pure. Sometimes it is so dark, and terrifying.

Bok Ju is really going towards a heartbreak in the coming future episodes. Her heart is going to be crushed badly, when she knows about the truth.

What i love about this cute bundle is that, she never experienced love in her life,and all the cute things she does, asking awkward questions and stuff, does really relate it to our first love , just like us. She is proud of being a weightlifter, and doesnt have that low self -esteem about her weight and is ready to fight with anyone who belittles weightlifters. That is one true quality i admire about her. She is tough at the same time a softie.

She really is pretty inside and out. She is so brave, like a moth to a flame, she is going towards fire which will burn her,but atleast she will be remember that he was the first man in her life to refer to as a ladyy/woman, which she might have never really gave it a thought, until this guy came along.

All i want for her is to enjoy the best out from her first love/first crush. Enjoy while it last. Love is bittersweet sometimes.

Coming back to Shi-ho, she is showing her true colors. I felt pity for her situation she is in, her family matters, her health etc. But how come she can easily without any shame at all, ask Joon-hyung to get back together, when she was the one who broke up first. I am sure, she is going to become so much obsessive about Joon-hyang, she is just sharpening her claws from now on.

I think it is so incredibly unfair that this show was released at the same time as Legend of the Blue Sea. Did it even have a chance? This show has heart. The bumbling girl, the awkward boy, first crush, friendship and loyalty, and the struggles with weight and self acceptance are all real themes that anyone can relate to. As international viewers we are blessed that we don't have to chose which one to watch on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Bok joo's character is relatable. I love how she figures things out all by herself. I'm already hooked with this drama! It's very light but satisfying. The story is on point. I'm excited to see also on how Joon Hyung will face the conflicts of his love interest! Thanks dramabeans for a very well precise explanation of the drama, i get to appreciate it more!

I am loving this drama more and more. Though, it was wrong that bok ju lied to the doctor, I can totally understand where she is coming from, considering this is her first love and you desperately want the other person to like you back. So, you do things that you think will impress them and will result in a high probability of them liking us back. I have faith in her that she will soon realize that she is amazing as she is now and extremely likeable. But I am really worried about her, she is losing weight but her coaches are planning on her gaining weight. Maybe once she tells the doctor the truth, he will help her in increasing her muscle mass.

Also, even though shi ho is self centered, I can't help but feel bad for her. Her circumstances are not really helping her. And I don't like her coach, why talk about a student's financial situation before her peer. Shouldn't she feel empathetic to her student's situation and help her become better with the given facilities instead of keep telling her off for not going to russia. Exact opposite of our adorable weightlifting coaches.

It's because Gymnastics Coach doesn't have enough sugar to power her heart. The last time she felt full... was maybe when she was 5. So she's being a hungry grouch. Being hungry is a terrible feeling you know.

On the other hand, our weightlifting coaches happily munch on meat to their heart's content. Despite him having diabetes. (What's up with that? Diabetes doesn't mean you can't eat meat. Exercise more, coach!)

Ha ha.. love your explanation, Peeps! :)

I know, I was curious about the coach saying he shouldn't eat meat because he has diabetes. I have always thought you should cut down on carbohydrates (like rice, potatoes etc) and obviously sweets but not meat because its mostly protein.
Maybe he has high cholesterol levels too. :P

Tbh, I've stopped with the slice-of-life, shoujo-esque kind of dramas a long time ago but this one just sucked me in. I usually watch a drama, like, half way until the main girl pisses me off but — although it may be too early to say so — so far, I really like Book Joo's cringe-worthy developmeny as a person. She's awkward in a way that's not the acceptable awkward; she's more of the facepalm and secondhand-embarrassment-inducing-kind that I really appreciate.

Also, while Joon Hyung is really adorable, his teasing of Bok Joo crosses the line at times and I'm glad that she calls him out on it and puts him in his place. However, I do like how he's just absolutely happy around Bok Joo and how being around her probably brings him back to a happier time. Much like how Shi Ho wants him back becuase of how he reminds her of her own past happiness, I do wish that he would realize how Bok Joo is the same for him and that in realizing this he would be made aware of his childishness towards her and that this would lead him to becoming mature in his interactions with her. Of course being jelous over her crush on his hyung would be a nice trigger too.

Ooh, lastly, I'm shipping Seon Ok and Tae Kwon because I think they would be an interestinf couple. <3

I can't put to words how much I admire Bok ju as a drama heroine. Her quirky, kind, brave spirit is just showers of vitamin C!!!! This show is so heartening and full of warmth and vibrant energy I feel like I'm falling in love for the first time. I just wished Shi-Ho wouldn't be portrayed so much as the self-pitying, selfish bitch because it's just so friggin hard to watch. I get her but she's getting so cringe-worthy that I'm like, please, PLEASE, don't go down the 2nd lead jealous, selfish bitch hole. I mean the show makes it pretty clear: Bokju, is in no way, an easier financial situation than Si-Ho. If anything, Bokju is the one who juggles helping out her dad alongside school/training. Indeed, perhaps what I find to be masterfully done by the show is that never once did the show try to portray Bokju's unique femininity as unattractive or weird. Perhaps the flipside of the same coin is that contrary to Joon Hyoung, there is no explicit attention drawn to Bokju's absent mother, or JH's absent father, for that matter. I will pray to the drama gods to let Si-Ho not use her claws against Bokju. If anything, she needs to wake up and face her inner demons like a grown-up woman and not manipulate some innocent girl she is jealous of.

Joon Hyung, I don't know what to do with that boy. When he tried to find out what was in her bag at the fountain, and admitted, "whoops, sometimes I forget you're a girl." Ouch. I'm glad Bok Joo didn't react too much to that comment, as it's the truth, but still not the truth. He does treat Bok Joo in much the same way as he treats Tae Kwon, because when he sees her he goes straight back to his 10 year old self- back to a time when it wasn't about boys and girls and male/female and it was just friends and kindred spirits. He sees her as someone he wants to be friends with, or is friends with. But as nice as friends are, what Bok Joo needs is for guys to see her as a girl right now. She's subconsciously craving just the acknowledgment that she's a woman, which is why she's so drawn to Jae Yi's chivalry. And it makes me wonder: Jae Yi admitted that she was pretty, at this point in the story, would Joon Hyung?

Yes, that line on joon hyung's part was a big no-no. I felt like lollypip too, "just shut up now". But What you said about joon hyung's point of view makes total sense too. So, I guess we can't fault him too much for being this way. Glad bok ju doesn't take him seriously. Otherwise I am sure it would have hurt her because she doesn't really consider herself feminine as of now and hence she lies to jae yi since he was the first guy to acknowledge her as female, she wants to maintain it with him.

But it just makes me sad that we are living in a soceity where a girl feels like she has to hide or lie about her physical strength for guys to acknowledge her as female.

I think bok ju liking jae yi is going to spur joon hyung Into action and be the guy that bok ju could like, because we all know he has that side to him.

This drama keeps me grinning, it is so freaking cute. Just what I needed after the end of Shopping King Louis.

I just love the faces that Lee Sung Kyung makes. She really is adorable, and to have someone who is naturally pretty make so many silly faces in such a unselfconscious way is refreshing. I like her more and more in each drama of hers that I watch.

The bicycle scene was so hilarious I was howling with laughter.

And yet, this drama has moments where Bok Joo's vulnerability just breaks my heart:

- The doctor offers a handshake and Bok Joo opens her reddened palm to reveal the calluses...I was not expecting that at all, and I was floored by how touched I was.

- She clips her red clip on her sodden hair...this totally unexpected gesture took me by surprise, and I was oddly moved.

That calluses part touched me too. I felt sad that she didn't have the confidence to shake his hand despite that (I guess for fear of being considered unfeminine? Because females are usually supposed to have soft hands? Pfft.). I want her to be proud of her calluses someday because it shows her hard work amd her commitment to being an athlete. But, I am sure she will get there. This girl is just so adorable and all episode she was either blushing or smiling, it was heart tugging.

"Coach Yoon tells the team that he has diabetes, and isn’t supposed to eat meat. He does anyway, because he’d rather live a happy life than a healthy one."

Did anyone else think this was super problematic?

Diabetes is no joke. And considering that the intended audience for this show is young people, should they really be teaching young diabetics to ignore their doctor's advice about their health to be "happy" in the moment? I mean, a sugar spree or drinking binge might make you happy for 5 minutes, but in the long term, that kind of behavior can lead to an early death, especially for people with diabetes.

The diabetes thing was so poorly handled. Actually you can eat meat (mostly lean meat) since it is protein and won't really affect your body's glucose level. I think they could have worded it better and used a better example. Cutting out bread (pastries) and rice would make more sense for a diabetic.

thank you for the recap!! :)
I love this drama SO much!! I love how it shows the characters inners feers and straggles at that age and I really love the weightlifting coaches for caring for them and supporting them!!
Joon Hyung!! oh my... what to do with that kid?!! he's hilariously silly and pain in the neck but he's SO cute and sweet that you can't really get mad at him!! I can see him digging his grave with Bok Joo and he'll realise how he was acting on ruining his chance with her when he'll realise his feelings for her, which will be soon apparently!! :D I actually love that we're seeing more to him than the cutie puppy that he is around Bok Joo, and I felt really sad for him when he kept the trigger of his panic/stress desorder from his therapist!! he always act as if he's fine and happy but he's having alot of stress and sadness behind his smiles and to see that the trigger was his mother leaving and realising that her assumely postcards were actually from his aunt, OH, that was so heartbreaking and he kept it to himself all that time so they won't worry about him and that shows how he's really a sweet and caring kid!! and hopefully he'll allow himself to get treated properly by allowing the people around him to see his vurnablity without masking his sadness behind those cute smiles all the time in front of them!!
Bok Joo is super cute while in love!! I feel sorry for her that she feels the need to lie about who she really is to look more feminine in front of her cush which I understand but I can see that it won't lead her anywhere and worst now she'll be forced to make a desicion to either pursue her career or her crush which sucks!! I hope she'll come in terme whith who she is and believe in what she always said "inner beauty is what really matters" and it's not like she's not pretty to beging with!! being thin like the gymnastic girls isn't really what makes a girl pretty, other than for shallow men and who cares about these kind of men?!!
Shi Ho, I'm sorry for her career straggles but I hated how she acted around Bok Joo and Joon Hyung!! I get that she needs him to keep believing that everything will go back as it used to be but that's not true and she can't break his heart in the worst timing ever only to go back one day and ask him to date again!! that was shameless!! if she really wants to have a chance with him she needs to show her remorse 1st which she doesn't have apparently!! I loved how Joon Hyung called her out for her selfishness and remorselless actions!!
things looks to go into a more complicated roads and more funny moments and I can't wait to see how things will go with Joon Hyung and Bok Joo crushes and careers!! :D

Kim Bok Joo!
I just want to hug this girl. I have always been a broad sholdered girl who has done strength sports(discuss and shortput) since middle school. Nothing serious enough but just interschool level. So i totally relate to her in such a personal level, she brings happy tears to my eyes. Some instances, i hesitated shaking hands with my crush, then again i used to be proud of my height and strength. Adolesence is so tough!!! Sometimes you want to fit in and be cherished, then again you want to do what makes you happy without caring about anything. I just love seeing how independent she is but at the same how utterly clueless and awkward. I totally adore this girl.??

I am loving this drama! I always scream whenever something cute happens and I love that Bok Joo falls in love with the second lead first, mainly because he's so nice to her. I love the main guy, because he's so cute but so annoying.... I just feel bad that behind that pretty smile, he's in pain and I think Bok Joo can help resolve his feelings out without burdening her.. also am I the only one curious about her mom or did I miss something?

Anyways, after seeing Shi Ho on this episode, I can really see her becoming the stereotypical second lead and is gonna end up asking Bok Joo not to like Joon Hyung when the time comes for it.. I CAN SEE IT HAPPENING ALREADY. I understand that she wants to go back to the days her life was "great" but she really shouldn't always think about herself. I know she's having a hard time and I feel for her, but her actions just make me not feel sympathy for her.

Quite expected if it go that way.. Was expecting something different, but seems like its progressing the way LollyPip mentions..

so this also means that eventually at the end she will come to realize her love for joon hyung isnt what she perceive to be or really want.. she want him back, just like she want her glamorous days back.. to her, probably he is just a trophy? and she would give her blessing to the main leads..

I'm confused about something here... bokju is only doing the losing weight program to be close to her crush, right?! I know the drama hints at her being a bit down when other people talked about women weightlifters not looking like girls, but I don't think she really wants to be thin or like the models. her sole reason to go through the program is to get close of him, right?!

but then, she's also the rising star of her sport and she really seems to enjoy it. she wants to be a champion not only to help her team, but also for her own ambition. so I assume she knows that her weight plays a big role on her perfomance so she can't really lose it?! not with a doctor that doesn't know that she's an athlete? but she's still doing it. idk how to explain properly, but something about this whole thing rubs me in the wrong way. at best, it seems like she's being really irresponsible, messing with something that it's so vital for her sports career.

actually, this drama is walking on a really thin line for me. it can be really amazing or a mess with how they show bokju as an athlete. I know this is a romantic comedy and the first love/romantic aspects is the bigger picture, but they can't ignore her sports background and everything that comes with it.

idk if I even made sense with all of this.

Yes, Bok Ju is only doing the weight loss program to get close to her crush. And if I recall correctly, she's only lost about a kg so far. The show also points out that she's already healthy, with a lot of muscle mass, but that she's carrying some fat around her middle. She's not in any danger zone with her sport yet; she's not losing any muscle mass, probably just water weight with all her running back and forth from the clinic. ;) The problem will come when she has to start gaining weight for her sport and face "looking bad" in front of Jae Yi. Right now she's a model patient, what happens when the scale goes up instead of down? How long will she keep her secret?

Required fields are marked *

Well, think that Bok Ju is a teenager, so of course she could think of the crazy idea of losing one or two kilos in exchange of seducing the man she is daydreaming about. :)
A different thing will be the moment when she has to face reality and choose what to do with the competition. I'm expecting her to be mature enough to leave the clinic at some point...but we will see how her relationship with the doctor goes. She already put herself in a difficult position saying that she is a cellist, and maybe Joon Hyung is going to help to end the situation sooner than expected...

I get that she might be a bit naive, but she's not a teenager. they're college students and she's not even a freshman. of course no one matures in the same speed and the drama will exaggerate a few things to keep its story interesting, but her character is someone who attends a university that is focused on training athletes for national team. they're basicallty the elite of university athletes. she is not a beginer. if the drama had a high school setup, maybe it wouldn't be this weird for me how she doesn't even question what she's doing (she only questioned because of money).

I'll wait and see how she will go from now on, esp with the news that she might change her weight class.

I completely get why she would lie about being a athlete. the drama made it clear that a lot of people thinks being a weightlifter makes her ""less girly"". and I would assume that she also knows that if she reveals that she's a athlete, the doc wouldn't take her as a patient because he knows that it's a complete different story re: weigh loss in her case. the latter is just me expecting the best from the drama though.. lol

maybe I expected more motivation from her coming from her relationship to her sport and, until now, I'm seeing more motivation for her loveline. which is not necessarily the drama's fault. just me with wrong expectations lol

Everybody's talking how they feel for Sh or By, but in this episode my heart went to JH. He went through many really terrible things in short period of time. He found out that it's not his mom that's sending him letters, but his aunt, he got disqualified from competition for something he couldn't control, and then his girlfriend broke up with him.

As much I am super enjoying the drama, I have the same questions regarding BJ's decision to lose weight. As a dedicated athlete who have spent years in the sport, she should be aware about how her muscle mass contributes to her abilities as a weightlifter. I'm still chalking it up to her crush on JY temporarily blinding her. I hope her being a weightlifter gets cleared up soon as I'm sure JY will feel bad for giving her a misinformed advice. I think BJ should own up to it since its her lie in the first place.

On Shi Ho, I was feeling a bit bad for her but after the last 2 episodes I think she is too caught up in her own woes and carelessly use other people for her benefit. Now she wants JH back to use him as a crutch to escape from the stuff in her life that is not doing well instead of confronting it.

BJ is so cute with her crush. The note was so direct, BJ definitely wears her heart on her sleeve. Am so thankful, doc - hyung did not see it cos that was so cringeworthy...lol. LSK is just outdoing herself here.

The bicycle scene with Joon-hyung was so cute. Can't wait to see him teasing her next week now that he knows about her crush on his brother. At the same time, I see him getting super jealous over her crush. These two are too cute.

Shi Ho - Wow, like how selfish can you be? Breaking up with him when he was at his lowest and now wanting to get back together to help her self-esteem or whatever. So happy with the way Joon-hyung turned her down. Still, her character is so pitiful...I want to hug her.

How do I wait for next week? I just started watching Shopping King Louis while I wait for Wednesday.

SH is annoyingly self-centered but i pity her.she have nobody.i guess that's why she wants JH back.while BJ have good friends,nice coaches and great family.BJ got lots of support from everybody cause she's a great person to be with.

I didnt foresee that i lose weight for my crush and to feel more attractive vs i gain weight and increase chances of success in tournament and for the good of the team. Such a great and diff subject. I feel for Bokju once she hears of her coaches suggestion. What a dilemma to be in.
I love the sensitivy the production team tackled regarding weight and weight loss. Weighing more isnt just fats. Theres muscle mass, bone density and for some water retention. Also i love how they all find Bokjoo attractive in her own ways. And that point has been highlighted. She may be bigger than petite girls and a lil rough and tough in her demeanor but she also has alot of plusses.
Im sorry and not sorry i fastforward shiho bits. Shes clearly down a self destructive part. And the selfish elements in her wouldnt reach for help and probably quick to blame others for her issue. It will be hard for someone to love her when she doesnt love herself and her body. Which brings to weightlifting coach's pep talk of wanting them to love weightlifting, the sport dor itself instead of destroying their body for the sake of medal.
Im really loving the content in the drama. Highlights some of struggles athletes and student athletes face.
I wouldnt mind seeing more development in bokjoo and her dad plus uncle. And also joonhyung and his mom issues.
Thankyou show for managing to stay light and easy watch but with substance and heart.
Grateful there's some improvement in the ratings too.

I'm actually a bit disappointed with the direction they seem to be taking SH to, which is bitchy second lead, and hope they will turn it back up and make SH and BJ real friends instead. Because God knows they could be! I mean, BJ has a good, supportive community behind her in her life and I feel SH really needs that, considering she also doesn't seem very close to the other girls in RG. She needs friends, this girl. I'm worried about what she'll do to hurt herself and other people soon if she doesn't get some.

I just marathoned a whole bunch of current dramas during Thanksgiving and I have to say, WLFKBJ is my favorite among the light dramas and Oh My Geum Bi among the heavy dramas.

1. LSK has really transformed herself into Bok Joo and I love how she has taken a complete departure from the usual roles she has done so far.

2. I was a bit shocked at Kyung Soo Jin's weight loss since Plus Nine Boys.

3. It's a relief to see Jo Soo Hyang playing a more funny villain here. I was worried for Bok Joo if Jo Soo Hyang's character was full evil. She's scary good at that.

4. They should give LJH the official title of Rom-com's Token Second Lead.

I was really apprehensive to watch this drama because I wasn't a huge fan of Lee SungKyung in Doctors and the fact that I couldn't possibly imagine her being able to accurately protray a weightlifter but she's proven me wrong and doing a pretty solid job in this drama, I love it.

Also, Nam JooHyuk is such an adorable puppy here that it's hard not to like this drama despite the btchy second female lead trope. Add Lee JaeYoon as the most endearing second lead ever and Ji IlJoo who is an adorable friend to NJH's character and that's a drama I'll definitely be looking forward to watch!

I just cannot wait for JH & BJ to realize that they like each other. Well, at least on JH's side, it has been evident since episode 1 that he has a 'thing-he-does-not-know-yet' for BJ. But it is much more exciting on BJ's side since she's only had her eyes on Hyung. Gaaah. I wouldn't mind if there's a little bit of heartbreak at first, so long as the show will give as ~NJH-LSK skinship~.

Thanks for the recap, LP!

I also like the way the topics of weight and health are discussed. It sends the correct message that not everyone is gonna look like a model. There is a healthy way to go about a diet to lose weight, and being large doesn't mean that you look unpretty or that you're unhealthy.

I already anticipated when JH and JY would finally be in the same space as BJ... That was bound to happen sometime and it's funny to see that it's at the clinic. No doubt JH is gonna put two and two together and figure out that BJ was the one who returned the umbrella to JY. I agree that I hope this would be a wake-up call to JH to mature and stop teasing BJ like a little kid.

As for JH's childhood trauma, I hope he can overcome it and he will be less on guard during the therapy sessions. It's sweet that his aunt has been sending those postcards in hopes of easing JH's pain and heartache.

SH is such a pitiful character. I find her purposely talking to BJ about JH very sly, and I agree that she's setting things up so that BJ will not get together with JH later. I just hope that she will deal with her own demons, whether it'd be eating disorder or reaching a plateau in her rhythmic gymnastics, and don't turn to an evil character.
