Now that YG Entertainment has officially revealed Nam Joo Hyuk and Lee Sung Kyung’s relationship, let’s go back to the moments where we can prove they’ve been a couple for a long, looooong time. The Weightlifting Fairy stars have been very close since they started filming and finally after months of waiting, they are official.
Nam Joo Hyuk, who plays Joon Jun Hyung in the hit Korean drama Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, usually gets paired up with his best friend Kim Ji Soo. They have been filming together since Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo and they’re bromance is really something else.
However, Joo Hyuk has been very clear about his love for Lee Sung Kyung ever since as seen in this video.

Although Joo Hyuk and Sung Kyung starred in another Korean drama before this called Cheese in the Trap (great coming-of-age drama by the way), their characters weren’t able to interact much then. It’s a good thing Weightlifting Fairy started where they were able to really show their chemistry.
Let’s throwback to that really kilig-worthy scene that was apparently just the actors’ ad lib!
Their relationship has really bloomed since the drama and it looks like they’ve been taking it to the ‘outside world’ ever since.
Remember that time Lee Sung Kyung attended Nam Joo Hyuk’s fan meet event? It was everything we’ve ever lived for.
Going back to the drama, we absolutely love their behind the scenes because it just goes to show they are really good friends even behind camera. It’s hard to not think they’re meant for each other!
Just take a look at this WFKBJ first date scene!
This gorgeous couple had the honor of presenting awards at the MBC Drama Awards.
Before they announced the nominees, Nam Joo Hyuk spontaneously referred to Sung Kyung as “Bok Joo” and you can genuinely see how surprised but really kilig Sung Kyung was!
HEART REACTS ONLY
Our ship has sailed, everyone. #NamLeeCouple
