Byeon Woo Seok and Kim Hye Yoon‘s characters had fatefully reunited in the altered future of Lovely Runner, leaving fans wondering if a happy ending is in store as the show approaches its final two episodes.

In the episode aired on the 21st, tvN’s Lovely Runner depicted Lim Sol (Kim Hye Yoon) making a firm decision to erase all connections with Ryu Sun Jae (Byeon Woo Seok) to save his life. However, Lim Sol encounters 34-year-old Ryu Sun Jae, who has no memory of her, and she can’t help but shed tears. Their paths cross again in an unexpected twist when a resignation letter and an award announcement get mixed up.

The fate brings them together again when Lee Hyun Joo (Seo Hye Won) sends Lim Sol’s screenplay detailing their 15-year romance that only she remembers now, to Ryu Seon Jae. Reading the screenplay, Ryu Sun Jae finds himself moved to tears without understanding why.

Determined to cut ties, Lim Sol initially rejects Ryu Sun Jae’s proposal to star in the movie, firmly telling him, “I’m sorry, but I don’t want you to take this role. If you see my name on a project in the future, please just pass on it.” Despite her resolve, repeated proposals from Ryu Sun Jae lead Lim Sol to resign and visit an amusement park where they had once dated. Coincidentally, Ryu Sun Jae was also at the park for a commercial shoot, which got canceled, leading him to spot Lim Sol on the Ferris wheel.

As Ryu Sun Jae talks about the screenplay with Lim Sol, he says, “Does the man truly forget everything about the woman he loved so much? It’s a sad ending. The woman saved the man but lost her love. Is the woman happy after losing her love?” His words strike a chord with Lim Sol. He continues, “Lately, I’ve been feeling strange. I cry unexpectedly, and though this place is new to me, it feels familiar, like I’ve been here before,” expressing an inescapable destiny and instinctual pull towards Lim Sol.

The turning point comes when the Ferris wheel suddenly stops, and Ryu Sun Jae grabs Lim Sol to steady her. She notices a necklace peeking out from his shirt—the same necklace Ryu Sun Jae had given her on her birthday. Lim Sol’s narration, “At that moment, I thought our fate was like this Ferris wheel, endlessly circling the same spot,” is accompanied by the poignant scene of the two embracing, leaving viewers deeply moved.

Meanwhile, the 14th episode of Lovely Runner achieved an average nationwide rating of 4.8%, peaking at 5.5%.
