Weightlifting Fairy Dating Costars Nam Joo Hyuk and Lee Sung Kyung Confirm Breakup

Sigh, it sucks to have one happy dating news followed by one sad breakup news in the same week, especially since both sets of romances were the on set reel to real drama fan shipping types. Cult favorite K-drama Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo leads Nam Joo Hyuk and Lee Sung Kyung have confirmed their breakup after about 6 months of dating, not terribly surprising since they are both still quite young and also quite busy with their acting careers to juggle an early stage relationship that requires a lot of nurturing to maintain.
