Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo is a classic romantic comedy, with great characters, an endearing story and some unforgettable moments. If you’ve watched this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:

What is Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo Season 1 about?

Weightlifting Fairy is a well written and simple K-drama that follows Kim Bok-joo, a promising female weightlifter in college. Her father and uncle run a small chicken restaurant, although the latter has big dreams of becoming an actor. Bok-joo has a bright personality and she’s certainly quirky, but her physical appearance and fierce determination, means she’s not all that popular with the guys. There’s also an ongoing rivalry between the gymnastic team for Bok-joo to contend with.

Meanwhile, Jung Joon-hyung is a swimmer plagued with haunting memories of the past. He’s a free-spirit, raised by his uncle and aunt. His cousin Jae-yi is like a brother to him and looks out for the guy. However, when Bok-joo ends up falling for Jae-yi, it entangles the three into an unforgettable adventure with plenty of drama, laughs and comedy

Has Weightlifting Fairy been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, MBC has not renewed Weightlifting Fairy for season 2,and it would seem unlikely that it will be. Despite how beloved this drama is, the story runs its course and ends on a really satisfying note with our two leads and all the other characters’ stories wrapped up.

The show is undeniably popular though and it’s one of those dramas that does remain in the cultural zeitgeist years after everything has wrapped up. However, as we’ve previously alluded to in this article, everything has been wrapped up and it seems unlikely that the cast will return for a follow-up. With that in mind, we predict that Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo will not be renewed for a second season

We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available.

What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 right now given it has not been green-lit. Given most Korean dramas are reserved to one season, with the rare exception of ongoing Netflix shows (Love ft. Marriage and Divorce, Hospital Playlist etc.) of course, it seems unlikely that this one will be renewed.

Having said that though, we could see a surprise in the future, should everyone decide to return for a crazy reunion episode or another season altogether. Considering all of this, we believe this will not be renewed.

We generally aim to update this page when more information becomes available.
