Korean Variety Show ♦ Running Man / 런닝맨 ~♥

Running Man is a Korean variety show that has high entertaining level; it never fails to cracks me up whenever I watch! The host, cast and guest are very spontaneous and sporting in the game show and I always feel elated after watching it due to their humour.

There are always different mission, race and games on each episode, such as finding the golden piggy banks and looking for the ‘spy’ among the team, etc. 

Cast of Running Man

It is a good way to de-stress by watching an episode of Running Man after a day’s work. I love their host, Yoo Jae Suk, find him really amusing and interesting! I cannot help feeling the Running Man members were like college students while watching the variety show as they were so fun loving and witty! Truly age does not equals to maturity!

The shooting of Running Man is at different venues and landmark from time to time such as Museum, Sports stadium, Seoul tower, Shopping mall, etc. It is a good opportunity to view Korea scenery and attractions at the same time. It currently has over hundred episodes and it is on-going (hopefully it will continue to 'run' for Running Man because they are just too fantastic!) and there will be new guests appearing in the show at times such as Song Joong-Ki, Se7en, Son Ye Jin and SNSD Jessica, etc.

I love all members of Running Man, the show will not be the same if it is short of any one of the members. But my favourite would be Yoo Jae Suk and Lee Kwang Soo. Lee Kwang Soo always never fail to make me laugh, he is just naturally comical and hilarious, so funny that sometimes I will laugh until tears roll down my cheeks! I like Yoo Jae Suk because of his humble, good sense of humour and sincere personality. He takes good care of his fellow members and co-workers and always put others before himself. He always do his best in all the games he take part in, even if he did not win in the end. His love for his family is also admirable; Jae Suk is a good role model and I learn from him that sharing and showing kindness for others is a wonderful thing, be positive and happy and always give your best! :)
