‘Start-Up’s’ Kim Seon-ho to make cameo appearance in ‘Run On’

Start-Up’s very own “Good Boy” will be appearing in JTBC’s Run On!

On January 20, an official from SALT Entertainment, Kim Seon-ho’s agency, confirmed that the actor will be making a special appearance in the drama and shared, “Kim Seon-ho will be appearing as a film director in Run On.”

Run On features Im Si-wan (Strangers from Hell), Shin Se-kyung (Rookie Historian Goo Hae-ryung), Girls’ Generation’s Choi Soo-young (Tell Me What You Saw), and Kang Tae-oh (The Tale of Nokdu). It follows a track and field athlete who quits the national team after challenging the unfair system of the sports industry and goes to become a sports agent and his odd relationship with a film subtitle translator who becomes his temporary translator for foreign interviews.

Kim has reportedly finished filming his scenes. The production crew of Run On said, “Please check the details [of his special appearance] through the broadcast.”

Kim Seon-ho’s special appearance is said to have been made possible by his good relationship with the drama’s director, PD Lee Jae-hoon, whom Kim worked with during his debut drama in 2017, KBS2’s Good Manager. Kim has then gone on to star in many popular dramas, such as 100 Days My Prince (2018), Welcome to Waikiki 2 (2019), and Catch the Ghost (2019). He recently received a lot of support and attention for his role in tvN’s Start-Up as the second love interest of Bae Suzy’s character. The said series immensely boosted Kim’s popularity locally and internationally, making him one of the rising stars of 2020 and establishing his career as an actor. Currently, he is in talks to reunite with Welcome to Waikiki 2 co-star Moon Ga-young as potential lead stars of a new romance-fantasy drama.

Run On airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 9:00 p.m. KST on JTBC and is available for streaming in over 190 countries via Netflix.

It was Princess Lulu who first introduced her to Korean dramas but it was Yoon Ji-hoo from Boys Over Flowers who enticed her to stay in K-dramaland. She writes news and features for Kdramapal, which combines two of her most favorite things in the world—writing and K-dramas (look who's living the dream). The name Luna literally translates to "moon" and nothing special; she just likes writing at night.
