it all started with jong kook's one

Thank you Running Man

Today, same as Wednesday, is not a good day. I woke up, read the news and well….Running man, my favorite show for like 7 years is going to be cancelled. Honestly, I preferred that over Kang Ho Dong joining. I’m not really fond of him, you see, but somehow deep down I didn’t want Running Man to end ever. After family outing was over, it was a bit empty, I kept on looking for similar shows, but none caught my eye and suddenly RM started, I would come home Monday thinking about the new Running Man episode. My mondays were never boring, because of Running Man and to see that suddenly it’s gonna stop, it breaks my heart. But the only thing I can do is to thank all the cast and the staff for these amazing years of laughter.

Thank you Yoo Jae Suk for being who you are. An awesome MC, a jokester, Yoo hyuk, Grasshopper, for your rivalry with Jong kook which was always funny, for your “outburst” with Haha and Kwangsoo, for being Ji suk jin’s sunflower, for your finger hearts or however is named, an overall honest person. You are one of the reasons why I started watching RM. Coming from Family outing and already knowing you was like a plus and you grew on me. I now know why people call you Yooneunim. Sincerely thank you.

Thank you Kim Jong Kook for being the Tiger and Mr. Capable. I also knew you from Family outing but man, you started to be more talkative with some time XD. Thanks for being the capable one, the scary chaser XD, the guy who would glare to his hyungs with no problem, the hyung with the kids who would get scolded every now and the, for being Coach kim and try to teach athletes how to do their jobs, for being the muscle guy and more.

Thank you Song Ji hyo for being the kind of actress who is not afraid to get dirty just because she has an image to maintain as other actresses or idols. Thanks for being a woman who can stand its own against all the males in the cast, let’s all remember one of the latest episodes where they had to piggyback the girls and neither Gary nor Kwang soo could move because Jihyo would squeeze them (I was cracking up,for real) ; thanks for being Meong ji, the girl who can fall sleep almost anywhere, worth mentioning the Jenga tower. Thanks for being part of one of the longest love-lines out there, the monday couple, thanks for being part of the candy alliance, the kwang-mong siblings that I seriously love, the song-song couple, spartace and so on. Thanks for being such an ace.

Thank you Kang Gary for being Gary-ssi and Random Mr, Capable. When you appeared for the first time…I didn’t know who you were, I just didn’t know about Leesang or the hip-hop scene in south korea but by far, I could tell you would fit well in the show. You always had the most normal and humane reactions ever, your speech with -seumdwa was always something that I don’t know why, it made me smile​. Thank you for being oblivious Gary, peaceful Gary, Random Mr. Capable, part of the monday couple that most people love. Thank you for being the amazing person you are.

Thank you HaHa for being the kid of the show, for being the schemer and cool person that you are. I already knew you from Infinite Challenge and although the characters on both shows are similar, they are not the same. I could always tell Haha is a smart cookie. He’s clever and witty and I have always laughed whenever he got annoyed either by Yoo Jae suk, Ji hyo or the guests. Also, thank you for being the “dongsaeng” to “uri hyung”, Time controller, Haroro, Haha the playboy or the kid who wants to be the villain. And as your stage name, thank you for the laughs.

Thank you Ji suk Jin for being the old ambitious guy of the show. At first, I admit that I didn’t like him, I always felt he was annoying and was craving for attention but as time passed by, well, I saw he was trying to be funny and honestly for a person his age, it must’ve been difficult to be running around with no problem. Thank you for being the race starter, the impala, Jaesuk’s sunflower, the only cast member who always was ready to face the female guests with no problem, the old guy with the cheesy lines. Thank you for being in the traitors club with Kwang Soo and in particular, thank you for being Wangko ahahahha

Thank you Lee kwang soo. What can I say about him? Similar to Ji suk jin, at first I didn’t like him, the whole framing and betraying simply wasn’t my style but over the time, his character grew on me. He is like a gem for the variety show scene of south korea and an awesome actor too. Thank you for being the giraffe, framer Kwangsoo, avatar Kwangsoo, traitor Kwangsoo,kwangtoad,  unlucky Kwangsoo and a million of other nicknames. Thank you Kwangsoo for being the gem that the show needed.

Last but not least. Thank you Joong Ki. When running man started I was relatively new to dramas so I didn’t know what types of drama he starred in, but guys, he’s such a good actor. You all know him now because of Descendants of the Sun, but what made me say that he is an awesome actor, was the movie “a werewolf boy”. Honestly, he was the flower boy of the bunch, I always loved how he seemed so close with everyone. Thank you for being active Joong Ki and the guy who cannot draw well. Thank you for the time you spent with Running man and all of us until you parted ways.

Special thanks to Kwon Ryeol VJ, Dong wan FD and Lizzy. These guys were always such a laugh. I was planning to write more, but I’m started to tear up and my heart feels so heavy

Running Man family, you’ve worked hard. Thank you for all the laughter these 7 years. You will always be in our hearts.

Running Man members express their feelings

Kim Jong Kook to Yoo Jae Suk: i mentioned this before, but athletes reach their prime as well. since my body is starting to ache, there are more things i cant do on running man. that’s when i was in a slump. it was because i knew people had expectations for me. but my body wouldn’t heal. so i couldn’t fulfill my role in those moments. i was put down every time that happened. there were times when i questioned my place on this show.

Song Ji Hyo to Lee Kwang Soo: I’m truly grateful to you. i always questioned whether this was really my place to be. it’s been six years now, but in the beginning i couldn’t talk with the cast members.i felt bad during that time, i cried a lot. and i had a hard time, so i told you that i wanted to quit. whenever i said that, you held on to me. i’m so thankful that you listened to me. 

Ji Suk Jin to HaHa: for the first few years, i kept asking myself why am i doing this show every week. but i didn’t want to quit. because the style of this show is so different compared to others. it took several years for me to get used to running man. i didn’t think i fit well in this team. but my fault was that i blamed all of you guys for it at the time. whatever you said i was easily offended. 

Gary to Yoo Jae Suk: my concern as an entertainer is growing bigger these days. personally i kept thinking that this might be the end. then i shake my head and cheer myself up again. but i’m afraid that i might lose everything. what burdens me the most is the question of “what should i do now?”i thought i had to quit, that it was the best for the show. 

Yoo Jae Suk to Gary: You know we all used to play in the playground when we were young. but as we get older we can’t play in the same place forever. we won’t have much fun playing with the same rides over and over find different sides of us we shouldn’t do the same things. that’s what we must do for running man. the staff members are looking for new environments for us to play in. 

my thoughts on these quotes: ill start off with kim jong kook, i said this in the past but he is no longer capable of doing the things he used to in the past. and i think this is the first time that he admitted to it on camera, and told us his true feelings. he’s legit sad that he cant fulfill that villain role anymore, taking over a game with his strength alone. and you can see it in the most recent episodes, he cant even stand by himself and needs assistance, sometimes clinging onto kwang soo’s arm to gain balance. its a shame, but im glad he said something or else people will expect the same thing from him 6 years ago. 

secondly song ji hyo and lee kwang soo has the best relationship in running man. you can see it on the show they really do care for each other, kwang soo especially takes care of ji hyo like a family member. 

i’m not sure a lot of you know this but gary was planning to quit running man a long time ago. there was a scandal with leessang and their concert that caused quite a stir, and both gil and gary were planning to quit from their variety shows. but yoo jae suk came to the rescue and asked them both to stay on. 

and finally the best for last, yoo jae suk pretty much described the entirety of running man in the past two years. the staff is trying to find a new environment for all members to play in, we finally have proof of why they stopped doing the name tag ripping on a weekly basis, and thats because they are bored with it. you would think spending four years ripping name tags, you would get sick and tired of doing the same thing week after week. 

its nice to see the cast speak whats on their mind and reveal their thoughts on the show.  i dont really know whats going to happen with running man, and i dont think anybody knows, not even the staff. they are in such a weird state right now, where they can last another few years or be done by the end of next year. i really want this show to be on the air, but not if the members have to make sacrifices and no longer enjoy what they are doing. i really do think if they do a season two, lee kwang soo, kang gary, song ji hyo and kim jong kook leaves. to this day kwang soo still hasnt been the lead role of a drama, which is absolutely ridiculous (the fish head doesnt count). ji hyo isnt starring in any dramas lately as well. kang gary is one of the most popular rappers in korea, and needs to take advantage of this before his audience no longer cares or moves on. and kim jong kook, hes done so much for this show but his body cant keep up with him. he needs to rest and start his new life with his future wife and kids. obviously im in no authority to be saying all of this, but maybe its for the best. new blood is what could save this show.
