Sahmyook University [삼육대학교]

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo (2016-17)

This university’s entrance appears as that of ‘Haneol Sport University’ in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (역도요정 김복주) (MBC, 2016-17). This is also where the first encounter between Jung Joon Hyung (Nam Joo-Hyuk) and Kim Bok Joo (Lee Sung-Kyung) takes place, when he nearly runs her over with his bike in the first episode.

  1. dorms

    where is the place that bok joo’s hostel (dorm or their rooms) situated?

    1. Hi there! Do you mean the rooftop hang-out? Than it’s right here. 🙂

  2. Weightlifting fairy location

    Hi. How about the weightlifting team area, swimmer’s area and the dormitories?

    1. Hi! Very good questions. I really wanted to find the swimming pool. But didn’t. And believe me, I searched. A lot. They probably filmed still at another place (there is also a campus with a park with weightlifting sculptures – which I haven’t found). If you stumble over any of these places, please let us know!
