Here's what Lee Si-Eun wrote
"I wanted to thank you for the lovely gift I received. Ever since I started my career as a writer, this is the work I've held onto the longest, and perhaps spending so much time with it has made me grow incredibly fond of it. It still feels surreal that the drama has ended, and I feel a bit empty inside. After the drama finished, I realised the script had many flaws, but I think it was the work I loved the most because I poured so much effort into it.
Every time I write a script, I always think that it's our actors, directors, and staff who turn the black and white words into a shining rainbow. I hoped many people saw and appreciated the rainbow that we all have created together. But, they showed us much more love than what we could've hoped for. It's amazing that everyone loved this work as much as I did!
I wonder if words can fully express this joy and gratitude. All I can think of is thanking you. I was really happy over the past two months because everyone loved Lovely Runner. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
Lovely Runner is a time-slip romcom following lead characters Ryu Sun-Jae and Im Sol whose fate get entangled in the loop of different timelines, as they realise that even if they try, destiny will keep pulling them towards each other. Spanning over a period of 15 years, actors Byeon Woo Seok and Kim Hye Yoon portray their roles from high school kids to around 35-year-old adults.
The show has been adapted from a popular webtoon Tomorrow's Best, illustrated by author Doong Doong. Lee Si-Eun, who was the screenwriter for the drama, modified some portions of the story. The most prominent change was introduction of a second lead, Kim Tae-Sung played by actor Song Geon-Hee.
