Kim Hye Yoon Talks About the Unexpected Popularity of Lovely Runner on Whenever Possible

Warm Welcome for Kim Hye-Yoon

Actress Kim Hye-yoon appeared as a guest on the SBS variety show “Whenever Possible,” which aired on the 4th. She shared her experiences with the show’s hosts, Yoo Jae-suk and Yoo Yeon-seok.

Right off the bat, Yoo Jae-suk and Yoo Yeon-seok acknowledged Kim Hye-yoon’s current popularity thanks to her role in “Lovely Runner.” They playfully greeted her as “Im Sol~” (her character’s name) and complimented her, saying, “You’re so hot these days.”

Yoo Jae-Suk Praises Kim Hye-Yoon’s Work Ethic

Yoo Jae-suk expressed his admiration for Kim Hye-Yoon’s success, highlighting her talent in both acting and variety shows. He stated, “I’m so glad Hye-yoon is doing well. Hye-yoon is also good at variety shows.” Kim Hye-Yoon responded with her sincere gratitude for their kind words.

Yoo Yeon-seok then chimed in, observing, “Hye-yoon is the type who looks like she works hard.” Yoo Jae-suk added with affection, “Those who work hard don’t fail.”

Kim Hye-Yoon’s Awkward Photo Booth Moment

The trio then proceeded to meet the first gap owner on the show’s itinerary. Arriving earlier than expected, they had the opportunity to take a unique “four-cut” photo together.

Kim Hye-Year’s inexperience with the photo booth was evident as she entered first, asking, “What do I do? Is this the right way to take it?” This prompted playful teasing from Yoo Jae-suk and Yoo Yeon-seok. They jokingly pointed out, “Hye-yoon doesn’t go out much, so I guess you don’t take four-cut photos often?”

Year of the Rat Photo

Since all three were born in the year of the rat according to the zodiac calendar, they decided to take a special commemorative photo together. Yoo Yeon-seok suggested they capture a pose or expression that reflects the characteristic features of a rat.

Upon seeing the final result, Yoo Jae-suk humorously remarked, “Hye-yoon, are you only going to show your front teeth? You too, Yoo Yeon-seok. I’m the only one who showed my front teeth completely,” causing laughter among them.

Did “Lovely Runner” Live Up to Expectations?

During their conversation, Yoo Yeon-seok asked Kim Hye-Yoon about her experience with the unexpected success of “Lovely Runner.” He inquired, “Did you know ‘Lovely Runner’ would be so popular? You’ve been in a lot of works, so don’t you have a feeling?”

Kim Hye-Yoon surprisingly revealed that she hadn’t anticipated the drama’s immense popularity. She confessed, “I didn’t expect it at all. I didn’t expect to be popular even when I was in ‘Sky Castle.’ But it’s so much fun to watch episode 1 of ‘Sky Castle.’ I didn’t expect it at all before. It’s the same with ‘Lovely Runner.’ I didn’t know it would be so hot,” she said with amusement.

Seeking Stress Relief Tips from Yoo Yeon-Seok

The conversation then shifted towards managing stress while filming. Kim Hye-Yoon openly shared her struggles, stating, “How do you relieve stress when you’re stressed while shooting a work? I felt like I was burning out. What do you do when you’re tired or lose your energy?”

Yoo Yeon-seok, empathizing with Kim Hye-Yoon’s feelings, offered valuable advice. He shared, “I do the hobbies that I, not the actor, like. That’s healing. It’s not that I can clear my head by clearing it. So I need to find another focus.”
