Update: Im Siwan, Shin Se Kyung, Sooyoung, And Kang Tae Oh Confirm For Upcoming Romance Drama
Updated June 24 KST:
Im Siwan will be starring as Ki Sun Kyum, a popular short-distance track and field athlete of the national team who retires after a life-changing event. When he meets Shin Se Kyung’s character Oh Mi Joo, he opens his eyes to a new world he has never known as a runner. Oh Mi Joo also finds herself relying on Ki Sun Kyum, who fatefully appears in front of her.
Sooyoung will play sports agency CEO Seo Dan Ah, while Kang Tae Oh will be the art student Lee Young Hwa. Though Seo Dan Ah was the only child of Seomyung Group, she was pushed down the order of successors for being female. To regain what is rightfully hers, she does everything she can to become perfect. While living her competitive life, she meets Lee Young Hwa, a charming art student who is popular at school. Lee Young Hwa’s hobbies are to go out on the streets to draw or to watch movies in a comfortable place and draw croquis. One day, he runs into Seo Dan Ah, a strange woman who asks him to draw for her, and he becomes intrigued by her.
The producers shared, “‘Run On’ will tell the story of two characters, who previously lived in completely different worlds, as they meet each other and grow, break the mold they had confined themselves to, and influence and love one another. I hope that the drama will provide viewers with some time to think about the language and method of communication through which we convey our sincere thoughts. Popular actors Im Siwan, Shin Se Kyung, Sooyoung, Kang Tae Oh, and more, who have acting skills as well as an impressive presence, will communicate with the viewers through this unique romance drama during the latter half of the year. We ask for your interest and anticipation.”
“Run On” is set to air in the second half of this year on JTBC.

Actress Shin Se Kyung has confirmed for the upcoming JTBC drama “Run On” (literal title).
The drama follows the story of a former track and field athlete named Ki Sun Kyum who becomes a sports agent.
Shin Se Kyung will be playing Oh Mi Joo, an adventurous foreign film translator who’s grounded and true to her emotions, although she finds it difficult to open her heart. While Ki Sun Kyum is fated to keep running while looking forward, Oh Mi Joo is accustomed to looking back and replaying the same scenes over and over again.
