In addition, an official from Good Data shared why “Lovely Runner” has recorded a high of 68,248 points in the topicality score is because of the multiple mentions and comments it received from the netizens.

“With the sensuous directing, fresh story, Kim Hye Yoon’s best acting, and even the OST are amassing good reviews. Netizens’ reactions were hot with the birth of a new star named Byeon Woo Seok.”

Won Soon Woo PD also predicted, “If the focus of the story is shifted from Byeon Woo Seok and Kim Hye Yoon to the protagonists’ family and friends, the topicality and viewership ratings may increase further as male interest is added.”
