With now only less than a month before its premiere, JTBC’s new drama Run On has finally dropped the new character posters of lead stars Im Si-wan and Shin Se-kyung to excite anticipating viewers even more.
Run On follows the romantic story between Gi Sun-gyeom (Im Si-wan, Strangers from Hell), an aspiring professional sprinter who ended up on the sidelines as a sports agent due to an unfortunate incident in the past, and Oh Mi-joo (Shin Se-kyung, Rookie Historian Goo Hae-ryung), a cheerful writer of movie subtitle translations.
In his poster, Gi Sun-gyeom appears to have just come off from one of his regular morning runs. Traced across his sweaty yet still unbelievably attractive face is a smile that shines as bright as the sunny day. His head is slightly tilted to the side, as if someone has pleasantly caught his attention.
Based on the similar background of the posters, that someone is highly likely Oh Mi-joo. In her shot, Mi-joo’s long, wavy locks give her an extra youthful vibe, on top of a face that looks fresh and radiant. As seen by how her mouth opened, as if in faint surprise, the sight of Sun-gyeom has surely brought her ordinary stroll to a full stop. Both their eyes foretell, however, that nothing about the days they would soon spend together will feel ordinary.
Run On is helmed by Lee Jae-hoon, director of The Ghost Detective (2018), and penned by screenwriter Park Shi-hyun. It is slated to premiere on December 16 at 9:30 p.m. KST and air as a Wednesday-Thursday drama, replacing Private Lives.
