"A first love comedy about a woman who has been weightlifting all her life after watching her father train at the gym, when throwing old furniture out she bumps into a man she is smitten with. Worth watching as she starts to strive to get the man’s attention, while meeting a former school mate who maybe able to help her!"
"Most of the time I end up having a love hate relationship with dramas by the time I’m finishing them. While I did enjoy this one I hated how they used Bok-Joo’s weight as an issue. Nothing else in the show bothered me as much as the weight issue. I thought it was a cute drama and I loved the supporting characters. Spoilers The main part of the show is Bok-Joo being a weightlifter and Joon-Hyung being a swimmer. All throughout the show Joon-Hyung calls Bok-Joo “Chubs” and would bring up her weight even though she looked healthy. It was her childhood nickname but it was so overused throughout the show. Even when the two started dating he still called her that which was weird to me. "
"It’s a classic kdrama for a reason. I love that this drama focuses on a sport that isn’t considered “feminine” and explores how difficult it is for a young woman who isn’t confident in her femininity. I think we tend to romanticize masculine, emotionless women in the West so it was a new concept that I hadn’t seen before. The male lead also has a good backstory that plays well into the romance between the female lead. Cutest kdrama couple other than Strong Woman DBS!! "
