Aside from that, the drama showed the importance of self-love, having second chances and working smarter to achieve your goals as an athlete.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

Probably the most iconic and memorable among the dramas on the list, Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo is a gender-bender drama. It proved to the viewers that even the sport ‘Weightlifting’ can actually be done by powerful women. More so, it tacked numerous issues inside the campus including school bullying, violence, friendship, and love.

Aside from weightlifting, the drama also gave us a glimpse of the not-so-mainstream sports gymnastics and the popular water sport swimming.

The strength of athletes shouldn’t be used for violence and this comedy drama showed that to us. It gave us the story of Ko Dong Man, a man who avoids his previous sport Taekwondo and wishes to live a normal life after some incidence during the time that he is active in his career.

A drama mostly filmed in the countryside, Racket Boys showed us that motivation and hard work can help you reach your goals.

The Dreams, a professional baseball team places last in the league for four consecutive years. With close to no budget, lack of support and infighting between the coaching staff, their manager tries to uplift everyone’s morale and creates a new strategy to push them to the top.

    Oppa is Life is a fan page created in 2019 when I felt the need for another virtual space to pour out my feels, musings and fangirl experiences. It started as a Facebook fanpage but I later on decided to open other social media accounts because a single Facebook page just doesn’t feel enough.
