Jung Jae Yi
In Weightlifting Fairy episode 5, the female lead convinced Joon Young to be silent about her feelings for Jung Jae Yi, an obesity doctor. However, their other friends began to get skeptical due to several clues.
A trailer for Weightlifting Fairy episode 6 teased at how her secret admiration might be revealed very soon. The clip began with Joon Hyung at a bus stop as Lee Jae Yoon’s character dropped off the female protagonist.
The star swimmer then explained to Kim Bok Joo that his brother is not interested in girls. She brushes him off by saying that guys usually do not prefer female weightlifters anyway.

In order to comfort her, Joon Young assured the female lead that there is “nothing wrong with female weightlifters. I think they are great,” he said.
They eventually decided to shrug off the issue and went out with Kim Bok Joo’s dad and uncle. However, the two seniors secretly observed the close friends.
The sequence hinted at the possible romance between Joon Jae and the main star.
Jung Nan Hee
Later on, the promo revealed a scene wherein Coach Choi Sung Eun instructed Kim Bok Joo about having to gain more weight. The clip ended with Jung Nan Hee discovering what happened to her friend and the obesity doctor.
Because of this, it is possible that Cho Hye Jung’s character will betray her friend. Viewers will get to see if she will spill the lead star’s secrets to everyone when episode 6 airs tonight.
