Marathon prep show coming to tvN

Nov 18,2019
Actor Ji Sung’s first reality program “RUN” will premiere on tvN this January, the television channel announced on Saturday.

The actor will be joined by actors Kang Ki-young, Hwang Hee, and Lee Tae-seon, and the show will follow them as they prepare to try out for the Firenze Marathon, an annual marathon that takes place in late November in Italy. This year’s marathon will be held on Nov. 24. The four actors left for Italy on Sunday morning to participate in the event.

“With running culture being quite trendy nowadays, there are many runners who are growing their self-esteem through running,” said producer Kim Hyun-sil. “As the viewers watch over the show’s stars train for the marathon, I hope they can forget their [hardships] for a moment and find comforted [in how the runners are able to overcome their difficulties.]”
