Running Shirt gets a title change
Baek Sung-hyun, Park Min-young, Yoo Yeon-seok
MBC’s sports/youth drama formerly called Running Shirt [난닝구] has gotten a new title just in time for its airdate next Wednesday, and is now called Racing Heart [심장이 뛴다]. Which is probably more appropriate, as the four-episode drama combines the story of a marathon runner (Baek Sung-hyun) with a love story, which places him in a love triangle with Park Min-young and Yoo Yeon-seok.
Baek, who recently acted in the lush period film Like the Moon Escaping From Clouds, replaced Song Joong-ki (who was originally cast) to play runner Dae-gu. Yoo plays Baek’s rival in the sport and for the girl; after debuting in Oldboy, he has acted steadily since in both films an movies. Most recently he was in the dramas Dream, General Hospital 2, and Hon (as the bullying student body president). Meanwhile, this is Park’s return to television after her drama Ja Myung Go was cut short a year ago.
The drama is currently shooting in Gyeongju and Pohang and will air its first episode on June 9. It will be followed the historical war drama Road No. 1 later this month.
