In a June 3 interview with Sports Kyunghyang, held after the drama's finale, Byeon Woo Seok had the chance to discuss various aspects of the show Lovely Runner and what the future has in hold for him.

However, adjusting to life after the drama has been a bit unfamiliar for him. During the interview, he reflected on the experience of encountering the first Monday without his character, Sun Jae. Byeon Woo Seok shared that during the broadcast period, his routine typically involved exercising at 8 PM.

When he returned home, it would be around the end of the latest episode of Lovely Runner, so he would watch the live broadcast until the end, and then rewatch it on OTT when it was uploaded later.

As for his plans for June 3, Byeon Woo Seok mentioned that since he can't follow his usual routine anymore, he anticipates feeling like "Sun Jae isn't coming" while enjoying some delicious fruit. He expressed that he might just sit on the couch and absentmindedly indulge in fruit.


Additionally, he revealed his fondness for revisiting his past works, admitting that personally, he doesn't want to bid farewell to Sun Jae too quickly. If he has the time, he would like to binge-watch the series from the very first episode.
