MBC recently revealed new stills from the set of the upcoming drama “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.” However, this time the stills included shots of the gorgeous Nam Joo Hyuk displaying his toned abs in a shirtless scene.
The talented model-turned-actor plays a professional swimmer who begins a romantic relationship with a female weightlifter (played by actress Lee Sung Kyung). The drama is based on the true story of a former Olympic weightlifter from South Korea.
According to the crew on set, the staff members began cheering when Nam Joo Hyuk came out to bear his body for the scene. Evidently, he didn’t let it phase him though and only continued to focus on his preparations for the swimming scene.
There has been a lot of talk about this drama already, with many fans anticipating the unique story and the chemistry of the leads. It is set to begin airing on November 16th.
