Calling all Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo fans: Rumor has it that Nam Joo Hyuk and Lee Sung Kyung *might* reunite in an upcoming webtoon-based drama!

Last month, Management SOOP—the agency of Joo Hyuk—announced that the actor is positively reviewing the offer to star in Vigilante. The series is about a police university student whose hobby is looking for criminals on Saturdays and Sundays. If Joo Hyuk accepts the role, he will portray the lead character, Ji Yong.

For those who are new in the Hallyu world, Joo Hyuk and Sung Kyung led the coming-of-age series Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo in 2016. They soon developed feelings for each other and started dating the following year. The two called it quits after a few months but in 2021, they were caught in dating rumors again. Eagle-eyed fans have noticed some hints, like their photos that are still on their Instagram accounts.
