What is the plot of Run On?

Sports agent Ki Sun Gyeom was once a sprinter for the South Korean national team, but due to a controversial legal case, he was forced to quit. Oh Mi-Joo, a subtitle translator for movies, is thrilled to see her name for the first time during a movie’s end credits. Seo Dan-A fights for her rightful place as the future head of the Seomyung Group, but outdated prejudices push her down the list of potential successors. Art major Lee Youn-Hwa appears in Seo Dan-A’s life, and his kind and caring nature draw them closer together.

How will Run On rank in the cable ratings?

The largest factor going against Run On for the TV ratings is the mid-week timeslot of Wednesday and Thursday. All of the highest-ranked jTBC dramas aired on the weekend.

To beat the current highest ranked drama, The World of the Married, the series would need to surpass a gigantic rating of 28.371%. To break into the top 50 Run On would need to beat the tvN drama Hi Bye, Mama! with a rating exceeding 6.519%.
