That Time Nam Joo Hyuk Became A Heartthrob

In Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, that’s when.

Episode 1 of the sports-themed drama premiered today, and Nam Joo Hyuk, the actor most recently seen in Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, was the biggest surprise. I’m sure I’m not alone.

He’s gone from kid to lingering adolescent awkwardness, and has been in that tricky zone for quite some time. You can get a little blasé about these things.

I can now confirm that it is a place at which he no longer resides.
