Kim Seul-gi reunites with Oh My Ghostess crew on Weightlifting Fairy
by | January 3, 2017 | 56 Comments

A cameo from Kim Seul-gi (Second to Last Love) is just the thing to lift my mood and distract me from the fact that MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday drama Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju is soon coming to an end. *SNIFF* The delightful little underdog drama about weightlifting heroine Lee Sung-kyung and her adorable friends-to-lovers romance with Nam Joo-hyuk comes from writer Yang Seung-hee of last year’s hit tvN rom-com Oh My Ghostess, which starred Kim Seul-gi as a lusty virgin ghost who inhabited Park Bo-young’s body (and kept trying to jump Jo Jung-seok’s bones).

That connection led Kim Seul-gi to film a cameo for Weightlifting Fairy, in which she also reunites with Oh My Ghostess co-star Kang Ki-young, who plays Bok-ju’s hapless Uncle Dae-ho. Kim Seul-gi will play an employee at the local supermarket in Bok-ju’s neighborhood, and her character will end up on a soju date with Uncle Dae-ho. Aw, but does that mean he gets dumped by Coach Choi? Or has he already been dumped and I’m just in denial about it?

Maybe if they use her cameo the same way they used Ji-soo’s or Seohyun’s in previous weeksβ€”to incite jealousy in the pairs of friends who had lopsided feelingsβ€”it’ll be a way for Uncle Dae-ho to get Coach Choi back. Not that riding off into the sunset with the cute supermarket clerk wouldn’t be a good consolation prize. I don’t know if anything will top the hilarity of Nam Joo-hyuk flipping out in a jealous fit over Ji-soo being called “oppa” by his crush, but if anyone can be trusted to make the most out of a short comedic scene, it’s Kim Seul-gi.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju will end its run next Wednesday, January 11, after which MBC will air a special preview of its follow-up drama Missing 9 on January 12.

    I need more Kim Seul Gi in my life. She needs to be in everything because she’s just the cutest and she’s hysterical.

    • 1.1 Rose

      Me TOO !!!! For the life of me, I could not name another actress that I love seeing on screen as much as her!

      She is my spirit animal !

      YES! I love her. Always brightens my mood.

    • 1.5 Ma. Selena

      YES, Kim Seul-gi will certainly add sparkle to this already bright and beautiful drama.

      It is one of the best I’ve seen in 2016! The two in the lead roles LEE SUNG-kyung and NAM JOO-hyuk, whose other dramas I’ve seen, are already there on my list of actors to watch out for. πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

      To be sure I will miss it when it ends next week BUT like I always do with dramas that I love, I will binge watch it again after a weekend alnd savor its highlights with a bag of popcorn and sparking blueberry grape juice. πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜πŸ€—

      Thank you Dramabeans for the recaps. πŸ˜πŸ˜ŽπŸ€—

    When you ask drama gods, “Can this drama be anymore adorable?” and they answer you with, “Yes. Yes, it can.”

    • 2.1 pogo

      and also when you ask the drama gods ‘please pair her up with Yoon Doo-joon as first leads again, and in a good project!’ …..

      • 2.1.1 Keishira

        Still no answer from Drama God πŸ™

    I say, is there massive love for this drama on DB?

    I don’t recall seeing preview stills of ongoing dramas on DB normally.

    This is a seriously cute drama and I am so looking forward to the cameo.

    • 3.1 pogo

      is there massive love for this drama on DB?

      • 3.1.1 nomad

    • 3.2 stuffed

      No words. Just lots of ❀❀❀❀❀❀

      • 3.2.1 Dongwookie

        that’s prolly because you can’t put a good drama down…

        looking forward to KSG’s cameo. I really loved her in Splash Splash Love.

    • 3.3 Waiting

      Yes, yes, YESSSSSSSSSS!

    • 3.4 ricenoodle

      Omo! Yes yes yes. I just came from watching Surplus Princess just for her and here she is making a cameo in Weightlifting Fairy. So excited!

  4. Sharreb

    Awwn she was even Nam joo hyuk’s love interest in Surplus Princess/ Idle Mermaid.
    Love her in Oh My Ghost too

    • 4.1 Lei

      All the guest appearances seem to be Nam Joo Hyuk’s past girlfriends from other dramas. Seohyun from Scarlet Heart and now Kim Seul gi from Surplus Princess.

    • 4.2 blnmom

      They were SO CUTE together. Plus Seulgi is like 2 feet shorter than NJH which made it even cuter.

    • 4.3 ricenoodle

      oops. I just saw your comment and had commented about Surplus Princess too. lol. They are too cute!

  5. Alert

    And she’s also Nam Joo Hyuk’s girlfriend in Surplus Princess!

  6. neener

    Looking forward to her cameo! And also looking forward to the next episode. One episode last week was just not that good of an experience.

  7. Martin J Simwaba

    Okey, now iam gonna look up “Oh my Ghostess” because of her cameo in this beautifull drama.
    As much as i enjoy uncle Dae Ho, i’d like it if her cameo lasted until the drama’s finale and become Dae Ho’s permanent girlfriend.

    • 7.1 Edgepee

      You have to catch Oh My Ghostess. It made its way to my Top 5 and is still staying there. This was SO GOOD.

    • 7.2 Rachel

      It took me 2 years to pick up and watch Oh My Ghostess, and it also took me pretty long to finish it, and now that I’ve completed it I ask myself why in the world it took me so long to watch it?!! You will not regret watching Oh My Ghostess, it is just THAT good.

    • 7.3 Boomboompow

      Same! In fact, Oh Mh Ghostess and Splish Splash Love are both in my top 5 favorite Kdrama.

      (Now, can we get a Jo Jung Suk cameo please?)

      • 7.3.1 Wayer

        JJS as cameo will literally brings the drama thru the roof πŸ˜€

        I love Kim Seul Gi. She’s so… happy all the time! I love her so much in OMG I’m so sad when she left for good ( yeah i know she’s a ghostess but… i believed that JJS fell for her, not PBY )

  8. brightsept

    wow she’s getting prettier each time i saw her! kyaa

  9. gogo

    aw man i hate seeing cameo news i wanted to be surprised

    • 9.1 Martin J Simwaba

      Aaw too bad. The solution is simple, just unsee it.

      I tell you, this is not mockery.

      • 9.1.1 gogo

        trust me i try to with every cameo but its always in the back of my mind when i watch the episode its so frustrating

  10. 10 Sera The Ms Temper

    I really need more of Kim Seul Gi in my life.

  11. 11 Seoulice

    WLFKBJ is my favorite 2016 drama. It’s been a long time since I wished a drama would never end. How do I now survive every Wednesday and Thursday knowing there won’t be new episodes ever again?!? Otoke?!!! I Cannot!!! I need more SOOWEEGGG in my life!!!

  12. 12 Lisa_wackycashew

    Super excited about this cameo! Love KSG!! Will definitely sad when this show comes to an end next week.

  13. 13 ohmyaegyo

    Kim Seul Gi is the cutest little thing. Now, I want her to work with the same cast and crew (again!) but this time with her and Yoon Do Joon as lead because we fans deserve it. Please drama gods, hear us! Goblin, help us!

    • 13.1 elric

      The members of the Kim Seul-gi and Dojoon reunion prayer circle will never stop!!! Hear our prayers, dear drama gods!

      • 13.1.1 monchers

        Oh, part of this prayer circle! Drama gods, please hear us for a reunion between Kim Seul Gi and Yoon Do Joon! They deserve itβ€”and we do too. Hee.

  14. 14 SLVR

    I loved Oh My Ghostess, and seriously wished for Jo Jung Seok’s character to fall in love with the Ghost instead of the real-life woman, because honestly, it was the lusty ghost that changed her personality and attracted him. πŸ˜›

    I want Seul Gi and Yoon Do Joon in a comedy sageuk. I always thought that those two would be a great fit for My Sassy Girl. πŸ˜›

  15. 15 John

    Drinking with Kim Seul-gi, I think that would be fun. Hope to see her in something soon.

  16. 16 Bazu

    When I saw “Kim Seul Gi” + “reunites”, my mind went “Yoon Doo Joon.” Somebody need to cast them together again already! πŸ’˜β€πŸ’“πŸ’•πŸ’–πŸ’—πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’πŸ’žπŸ’Ÿ

    • 16.1 Light

      My heart skipped a beat at the word reunite! But does Kdrama Land ever have couple reunions? Like Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan?

      • 16.1.1 Boomboompow

        Does Kdrama Land ever have couple reunions?

        – Lee dong wook + Lee da hae
        – Jang hyuk + Jang na ra
        – Song jae rim + Kim So Eun

      • 16.1.2 ohmyaegyo

        Ji Sung + Hwang Jung Eum

      • 16.1.3 Bazu

        Kwon Sang Woo + Choi Ji Woo

      • 16.1.4 raks86

        I sincerely hope and pray that someday in the future, NJK and LSK end up in the list *fingers crossed*

  17. 17 Light

    Awww Kim Seulgi! Such a pretty cutie. Looking forward!

  18. 18 leilaa

    aw man it would have been cute for her to interact with nam joo hyuk!!!

  19. 19 jodie

    nooo kim bok joo please dont end!! but.. yes kim seul gi! you hilarious and adorable!!

  20. 20 Aigoooo

    As soon as I saw the title of this article, I actually had a sound effect moment “Whaaattt?!?” lol

  21. 21 Yuki

    I love how generous they are being with cameos in WF. KSG is so cute, I can’t wait to see her scenes. Can I hope that they will bring Jo Jung Suk or Seo Kang Joon before the end of the series? More Oh My ghostess or CITT reunions would make my day. πŸ™‚

    Btw, have you guys noticed the awesome use of colors in this show? It’s simply amazing, a very personal style, I like so much the color palette. And the clothes are always matching the scenery. I know that so many coats are unrealistic, but the visuals are stunning, haha!
    There has to be a great professional team behind it. Just another detail to love this show.

    • 21.1 Captain3104


      As much as it is unrealistic, the color coordination in this series is just so aesthetically pleasing and compliments the respective scenes so well.

      That’s one of the reason I love this drama. Because I know the team producing this gem loves it just as much, through their attention to the smallest details.

      • 21.1.1 GedSkaiKru

        True, I love the team of this show, everything just seems so perfect (albeit the glaring coats, heh) and the music scoring…flawless.. πŸ‘Œ

  22. 22 Nanee

    Yay so excited for Episode 14 and her cameo! I’m literally counting down the hours. As much as I love her I can’t but help still ship Uncle Dae-ho and Coach Choi. They are just hilarious and cute together, hopefully the appearance of Kim Seul-gi will wake up coach and stir up her feelings for samchoon! I want a happy closure for the two soon, and more importantly so the remaining episodes can focus on closing out the main storylines.

  23. 23 Van

    I’m not even watching (yes, I know… idk what I’m thinking…), but maybe he asked Kim Seul-gi’s character for a favor to make the lady coach jealous? Would’ve never guessed that lady couch would be paired up with the uncle. I thought she’d be together with the main coach (Taeki’s appa!)… I should just pick it back up again, huh?

    • 23.1 GedSkaiKru

      Nah, I don’t think so, Kim Dae Ho is not that shallow. He must’ve been just pretty heartbroken.
