Series Review: Run-On

Lindsey Recinos, Reporter

The Netflix Korean drama series Run-On is about a national track athlete named Ki Seon-Gyeom (played by Si-wan Yim) who falls in love with Oh Mi-Joo, a subtitle translator played by Shin Se-Kyung. When Ki finds out there is abuse going on in the team and his friend is nearly beaten to death, Ki is told it’s for discipline. Therefore, Ki makes a big decision that could change his career. Also, his family is so broken up that they rarely talk with each other.┬áPlus, Ki has been physically and mentally hurt by his father.

As for cinematography, you will see beautiful backgrounds that coordinate to each character. For example, Ki is seen on track fields and Mi-Joo is often in a theater or her bedroom where she writes subtitles for movies. The plot of this K-drama is highly relatable because it has to do with family, love, abuse, and being selfless, which is why I would rate Run-On a 5 out of 5. It is binge-worthy because of how some scenes are heart warming and make you feel connected and amazed. Yim, Se-Kyung, and the actors who play sports agency CEO Seo Dan Ah (Sooyoung Choi) and university student Lee Yung Hwa (Tae-oh Kang) work hard to portray their characters in such a believable, realistic way.
