During a wrap-up interview for the drama “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” on January 12, Lee Sung Kyung said, “Until now, I’ve been playing characters that were scarred due to lack of love, like Baek In Ha (‘Cheese in the Trap‘) and Oh So Nyeo (‘It’s Okay, That’s Love‘).”
This time however, Lee Sung Kyung’s character Kim Bok Joo had many friends around her that gave her lots of love.
She explained, “I was happy and since Bok Joo is the main character, I was able to express emotions that were built up. The script revolved around Bok Joo.”
Lee Sung Kyung continued, “After expressing hurtful emotions all the time with my past characters, it felt nice to act a character that the script revolved around. I was thankful towards Kyung Soo Jin because I’ve been through her situation. It’s hard for actors to express emotions, too. [Second leads] have to express emotions that don’t necessarily connect, or sometimes we just can’t express them at all. I felt sorry towards her.”
Meanwhile, “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” finished its run on January 11.
