February 2, 2021 Update: Yup, it's really happening! On January 20, Soompi reported that Kim Seon Ho will be making a special appearance in Run On, and that he previously worked with its director, Lee Jae Hoon. He has already finished filming his scenes! Today, JTBC released official stills of Seon Ho from the show, and he will play Kim Sang Ho, the director of the film Codename Candy. He'll be having a scene with leading lady Oh Mi Joo! Look how cute:
A lot of us fell in love with Kim Seon Ho after seeing him as "Good Boy" Han Ji Pyeong in Start-Up, and ~rumor has it~, he's going to make a cameo appearance in a new drama called Run On! The show, which will be premiering on Netflix on December 16, is about "people who have trouble communicating, even while speaking in the same language." Im Si Wan stars as a retired track athlete while Shin Se Kyung (we absolutely loved her in Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung) is a translator.
Run On's second leads will be played by Sooyoung and Kang Tae Oh. Soompi tells us that Sooyoung's character is "an ambitious sports agency CEO," while Tae Oh will play an art student who is "well-known for his refreshing and charming personality." CUTIES!
Okay, so here's what we know: According to various fan pages, Kim Seon Ho will be playing a film director + the ex-boyfriend of leading lady Shin Se Kyung. Nothing is confirmed yet, but since her character in the show is a translator for foreign films, we totally see this cameo happening!
Aside from this possible cameo, Kim Seon Ho is in talks to star as the male lead in a new drama called Link. He is also set to star in the play Ice, a story about "two detectives who blamed an 18-year-old teenager for a heinous murder case." Our Good Boy seems really busy and we couldn't be happier for him!
