Nam Joo Hyuk has been offered the lead male role in upcoming MBC drama series “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo.” Actress Lee Sung Kyung has already been offered the lead female role in the drama series. Both performers are currently “positively considering” their offers.
If Nam Joo Hyuk accepts, he will play Jung Joon Hyung. His character is an excellent, but unlucky swimmer. Jung Joon Hyung and weightlifter Bok Joo (Lee Sung Kyung if she accepts) graduated from the same school. Interesting to note, Nam Joo Hyuk’s character in KBS2 drama series “Who Are You: School 2015” was also a swimmer.
“Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo” will first air this November in South Korea.
