Just two weeks after its premiere, JTBC’s new drama “Run On” is already giving viewers interested in its two swoon-worthy pairings!
- Sooyoung, Jeon Hye Jin, Ahn Jae Wook, And Park Sung Hoon Confirmed For New Family Comedy Drama
- Here Are The 8 Idols-Turned-Actors Chosen As The Present And Future Of The Korean Film Industry
- 10 Female Idols You Never Knew Had Such Beautiful Sisters
In the latest episode of “Run On,” Seo Dan Ah (played by Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung) and Lee Young Hwa (played by Kang Tae Oh) met each other for the very first time in the movie. Straight out of the gate, the two shared chemistry and dynamic that was nothing like the blossoming romance between Ki Sun Kyum (Im Siwan) and Oh Mi Joo (Shin Se Kyung).
As Seo Dan Ah and Lee Young Hwa get to know each other better, here are three reasons to keep an eye on the seemingly unlikely couple:
1. The nonstop bickering
From their eventful first meeting at the swimming pool, sparks flew between Seo Dan Ah and Lee Young Hwa as they butted heads. Lee Young Hwa responded to Seo Dan Ah’s arrogant, commanding tone by retorting, “What if I refuse? What if I don’t want to paint for you?” The two characters’ rapid-fire banter throughout the rest of the scene had viewers looking forward to seeing more of the chemistry between the fiery duo.
2. Seeing two unstoppable forces fall in love
As a chaebol heiress who heads her own sports agency, Seo Dan Ah is a sharp and practical realist who keeps her emotions out of the picture when she makes decisions. In contrast, Lee Young Hwa is a sentimental free spirit who puts his emotions first whenever choosing anything, though he says he has never yet been in love before.
Although the two characters couldn’t be more different on the surface, they do have one thing in common: they are both straightforward and stubbornly unyielding. Their strong personalities have viewers wondering what a romance between these two passionate souls might look like once they fall in love.
3. Their entanglements with other characters
Although Seo Dan Ah and Lee Young Hwa had never met each other before, they share some acquaintances links that could take their story in unexpected directions. In the latest episode, Seo Dan Ah’s idol younger brother Seo Tae Woong (played by Choi Jae Hyun) lost his cool after running into Lee Young Hwa outside her office and suspecting a relationship between the artist and his sister.
Meanwhile, Seo Dan Ah’s dependable colleague Dong Kyung (played by Seo Eun Kyung) turned out to be the mother of Lee Young Hwa’s childhood friend Go Ye Joon (played by Kim Dong Young) and his younger sister Go Ye Chan (played by Kim Si Eun), creating another unexpected link between the two characters.
“Run On” airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 9 p.m. KST.
