Behind the scenes of Lovely Runner makes fans’ hearts melt

Though the drama had a rocky start, with concerns over it possibly borrowing inappropriately from a real K-pop star’s life or being an idol-fan relationship, the storyline has managed to dispel these worries by offering something entirely different and heartwarming. 

It showcases a story of true love between two people that transcends time and manages to stay the same in every timeline. The lead actors have also won over audiences with their performances, resulting in a steady increase in the drama’s viewership. As much as fans love seeing Byeon Woo Seok and Kim Hye Yoon's fiery chemistry in the drama, the two also have an irresistible appeal as a couple, even when the cameras are not rolling.

Recently, a making-of video for the recent episodes of Lovely Runner has gone viral. The particular scene being shot is from episode 12, where the two main characters lie side by side in each other’s arms. Even though the shot was not ready, the behind-the-scenes interactions between the two actors in that setting were enough to make fans’ hearts flutter. Many were especially captivated by Byeon Woo Seok's gentle gestures toward his co-star, sparkling gaze, and heart eyes towards her.


Fans adored how Byeon Woo Seok and Kim Hye Yoon stayed lying beside each other, with Hye Yoon fully immersing herself in the emotion of her character, Im Sol, while Woo Seok attentively checked on her, refusing to move unless she did. 

The way he tenderly wiped a tear from her cheek and even teared up himself upon seeing his co-star Hye Yoon cry deeply moved viewers. After the director called cut, his first instinct was to glance at her, ensuring she was all right, warming hearts. In this scene where they weren't supposed to cry, both actors ended up shedding tears together, prompting viewers to do the same while watching the behind-the-scenes footage. Fans cherish this BTS moment as much as the scene itself, considering it just as precious.
