Lee Na-young flexes her action muscles in Runaway
With its cast in place, the drama Runaway is getting busy with production, and Lee Na-young makes the transition to action star. These latest stills show the actress escaping from a high-rise building; Lee plays “Jin-yi,” a mysterious woman who looks innocent on the outside but hides her real motives for getting close to “Ji-woo” (Rain), whom she approaches with the intent to manipulate. Romance complicates matters. So do the pursuers on their tail.
One source said, “Lee Na-young spent several hours suspended in mid-air while filming. She threw herself into the shoot whole-heartedly, and although it was a difficult situation, she managed not to lose her smile throughout it.”
The all-star cast also features Daniel Henney as Lee Na-young’s protector, while Lee Jung-jin and Yoon Jin-seo are the officers in pursuit of the two leads. The plot kicks off when a huge sum of money makes a reappearance after being hidden for sixty years, ever since it disappeared during the Korean War.
The drama takes the actors through multiple Asian metropolises — Seoul, Busan, Shanghai, Beijing, Macau, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Osaka, and Yokohama. It premieres at the end of September on KBS.
