Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo Season 2 Release Date: Is It Renewed Or Canceled?

Since MBC aired the series’ final episode, fans of the cult favorite K-drama Weightlifting Kim Bok Joo have been wondering if there will be any news or updates for Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo Season 2. Why wouldn’t they, considering the show was a groundbreaking innovation in the romantic comedy genre by placing its protagonists in a modern environment (a sports academy) and received widespread critical acclaim and fan devotion from audiences around the world?

Weightlifting Kim Book Joo isn’t just a love story; it’s also an examination of the lives of young, ambitious athletes as they navigate the pitfalls of first and unrequited love, the shadows of eating disorders, and the difficulties of dealing with absent parents, all wrapped up in viral moments of comedy (thanks to this show, every fan of Korean dramas knows the line “Do you like Messi?”). Kim Bok Joo, starring Lee Sung Kyung, concluded on a high note, with the protagonist finding true love with Nam Joo Hyuk. However, in this article, we will reveal all the information and fan theories on Season 2 of Weightlifting Kim Bok Joo.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo Season 2 Renewal Status

It seems unlikely that MBC will pick up Weightlifting Fairy for a second season at this time. The plot reaches its natural conclusion and concludes on a very gratifying note, despite the drama’s widespread acclaim.

However, the show’s popularity cannot be denied, and it is one of those dramas that continues to resonate with audiences long after its final episode airs. But as we’ve mentioned before, this article’s story arc is complete, and it appears unlikely that any of the original cast members will be back for a sequel. Given this, we feel confident in saying that Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo will not be given a second season.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo Season 2 Release Date

MBC aired the first season, which consisted of 16 episodes. Beginning with its debut on November 16, 2016, new episodes have been consistently released every week. Season 2 of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo, if it happens, will premiere in the winter of 2023–2024.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo Storyline

Angel of Muscle Gain Kim Bok-Joo is a good college weightlifter, and we meet him in Kim Bok-Joo. Her dad runs a little chicken joint, and her uncle has acting aspirations. She has a powerful personality and a deep commitment to fairness, traits that have earned her and her fellow female weightlifters a bad reputation among the male students. That’s why they’re single: no lovers. There is also tension between the weightlifting and rhythmic gymnastics squads.

Talented swimmer Jung Joon-Hyung, who also goes to this university, has been disqualified from many meets for making an illegal start. He is 21 years old and has a lot of independence after being brought up by his uncle and aunt with his cousin Jung Jae-Yi. Kim Bok-Joo encounters Jung Joon-Hyung riding his bicycle one day. Her appearance is recognizable to Jung Joon-Hyung, but he is unable to place her. He walks away, leaving his handkerchief behind, which Kim Bok-Joo later retrieves. Joon-Hyung decides to go on a search for the missing handkerchief because of how much significance it holds for him.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo Season 2 Plot

This conclusion to Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo had two purposes: it gratified viewers by tying up most of the story’s loose ends, but it also left them feeling sad because their beloved characters’ adventures were over. Since our favorite couple and everyone in their friend circle has settled down, presumably with marriage, fans of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo have been guessing as to the challenges and journeys of their middle-aged life. Since the players in Weightlifting Kim Bok Joo Season 1 discussed the effects of the Corona pandemic on the Tokyo Olympics, this could be another potential plot point to investigate in Season 2.
