Watch: Kim So Hye Is A Boxing Prodigy Who Disappeared Without A Trace In Upcoming Sports Drama

KBS2’s upcoming drama “Pure Boxer” (literal title) has shared stills of Kim So Hye!

“Pure Boxer” is a sports drama based on the novel “Pure Boxer Lee Kwon Sook” written by Choo Jong Nam, the winner of the second Kyobo Bookstore Story Contest. It is a story about genius boxer Lee Kwon Sook (Kim So Hye) and a cold-blooded agent who doesn’t feel guilty of match-fixing for money and the success of his athletes.

Kim So Hye stars as Lee Kwon Sook, a genius boxer who emerged as a boxing star at the age of 17. Lee Kwon Sook, who disappeared right before achieving the Grand Slam, was living a new life, but when she meets the evil agent Kim Tae Young (Lee Sang Yeob), she faces a new turning point.

The released stills show Lee Kwon Sook as an athlete and also her current life as a preschool teacher.

With a fierce facial expression and eyes, Kim So Hye perfectly transforms into Lee Kwon Sook, a genius boxer with a nuclear bomb for a fist and a bold fighting spirit.

Another still depicts Lee Kwon Sook as a preschool teacher. She is dressed in a simple modified hanbok and smiling gently at the preschoolers. Viewers are curious about the reason why Lee Kwon Sook, a genius boxer, ended up living as a preschool teacher.

The production team of ‘Pure Boxer’ commented, “Kim So Hye was Lee Kwon Sook, a boxing star who ran fiercely toward the top, from the first filming. Kim So Hye devoted a long time to exercise and boxing training for the character of Lee Kwon Sook and has made extraordinary efforts. You can look forward to Kim So Hye’s ever-changing portrayal of the complex and nuanced emotions of Lee Kwon Sook, a genius boxer who disappeared in an instant.”

A newly released teaser also features a news snippet reporting on the disappearance of boxer Lee Kwon Sook, who went missing right before an important match.

Another teaser has Lee Kwon Sook narrating, “I’m afraid of boxing, but I will come back after winning today.”

“Pure Boxer” will premiere in August 2023.
