‘Lovely Runner’ actor Byeon Woo Seok thanks co-star Kim Hye Yoon for looking out for him

Actor Byeon Woo Seok recently expressed his deep affection for the drama ‘Lovely Runner‘ and his co-star Kim Hye Yoon.

Appearing on the May 22nd episode of tvN’s variety show ‘You Quiz on the Block,’ Byeon Woo Seok shared his experiences and feelings about the hit drama. He described being on the show as a sign of his success, saying, “I often wondered, ‘Is this really for me?’ When I received the invitation, I was surprised and thrilled.”

Lovely Runner‘ has had a massive impact on Byeon Woo Seok‘s life. Each episode garners significant attention, and he shared his excitement about it. “On the days the show airs, I wake up at 7:30 AM no matter how late I went to bed. The ratings come out at 8 AM. “

He added, “I check the news for mentions of ‘Lovely Runner’ and myself. Reading the comments makes my heart race. I can’t go back to sleep because I’m so excited. After working hard for 8 or 9 years, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude.”

He also spoke warmly about his co-star Kim Hye Yoon, saying, “I couldn’t have expressed Sun Jae’s emotions without Hye Yoon. Her genuine emotions helped me immerse in my character. Initially, I had visible energy on set, but it waned over time..”

He added, “People noticed and called me ‘weak.’ Hye Yoon took care of me, bringing snacks and jellies during winter shoots when we had to work in cold water. It felt like we shared a bond similar to being in the military”.

The production of ‘Lovely Runner‘ took three years, and Byeon Woo Seok expressed his gratitude for the opportunity. “Even though I was a new lead, the script came to me. I knew right away I wanted to do it.”

He concluded by reflecting on his role and the future, “Sun Jae came to me after three years, and I’m so thankful. It’s rare to find a character you love so much. This role is incredibly special, and now it feels like another new beginning. I want to meet the love I’ve received with even better performances. It feels like a new start.”
