Relationships are finally starting to evolve (and dare I say unravel) on “Run On.
The romantic JTBC drama follows former national team sprinter, Ki Seon Gyeom, as he attempts to follow his own path after film translator Oh Mi Joo, runs into his life. His sports agent, Seo Dan Ah, is less than thrilled with Ki Seon Gyeom’s departure from the sports industry, but she has her own problems to deal with including reclaiming what is rightfully hers when she falls in love with a painting with a deeper meaning. Lee Young Hwa, a university art major and painter, is commissioned by Seo Dan Ah for a custom piece, however, their relationship is anything but professional.
#1. DOES KI SEON GYEOM FINALLY STAND UP TO HIS FATHER AND CHOOSE LOVE?
Ki Seon Gyeom’s father Ki Jung Do, a powerful assemblyman, has been keeping close tabs on his son. From using his status to keep officials quiet about his son’s assault and bribing Oh Mi Joo to stay away from his son to manipulating his family for selfish purposes and more, there is nothing he won’t do. Ki Seon Gyeom has defied his father on multiple occasions but always bends the knee when the time comes. Will he finally say enough is enough and choose Oh Mi Joo over his sense of duty?
#2. WILL YEONG HWA HELP SEO DAN AH OVERCOME HER FAMILY'S OPPRESSION AND PROTECT HER YOUNGER BROTHER SEO TAE WOONG?
Seo Dan Ah is the only legitimate daughter of the chairman of Seomyung Group, but she is constantly competing with her illegitimate brother Seo Myeong Min for inheritance and illegitimate brother Seo Tae Woong for space when all he wants is her love. To make matters worse her father plans to quietly marry her off while she struggles to keep her health, family's past, and love life a secret when rumors circulate that about a K-Pop idol being an illegitimate son - blatantly pointing to Seo Tae Woong. As Yeong Hwa has begun to get a better glimpse at her family’s volatile dynamic can he help her overcome oppression and protect Seo Tae Woong from public opinion while finding love together?
#3. CAN YOOK JI WOO ESCAPE THE CLUTCHES OF KI JUNG DO?
It’s no secret that Ki Seon Gyeom’s parents, actress Yook Ji Woo and assemblyman Ki Jung Do and a marriage of convenience. Whether he’s ushering her off to Sunday church service, demanding her attendance at a political event, or using her to keep their children in line, Ki Jung Do has expertly leveraged Yook Ji Woo’s celebrity status to his benefit. After thirty-four years of marriage, Yook Ji Woo has started to see the error of her ways in allowing herself to be his pawn. Will she attempt to reclaim her life as her own and escape his clutches once and for all?
