Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk are probably this generations ideal onscreen couple that has come to life. Thanks to the success of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, they were able to take their popularity to the next level. Many fans were quick to notice the pairs obvious chemistry, so much so that their lingering stares, sweet kisses, and adorable hugs on camera seemed pretty real.
Before their stint as the swag couple, both of them worked in Cheese in the Trap, though their characters had little to no interaction. And even before that, they were paired in several modeling projects as YG K-Plus agencys golden couple.
