Hello everyone, and Happy Sunday!
The upcoming episode of Running Man was already getting a lot of attention among K-pop fans, as iKon‘s B.I and Bobby were to guest alongside AOA‘s Seolhyun. ‘런닝맨’ began trending after the preview for the coming week’s episode was dropped; but it seemed that the guests and cast weren’t the only reason why.
That’s right: in honour of X-Mass, Running Man will be having an X-man special. For those unfamilar with the programme, X-Man was a competition-type variety show that pitted celebrity guests against each other in a series of mini-games, and broadcast on SBS. It was the show that catapaulted MC Yoo Jae-suk to fame, and birthed many epic moments that are still talked about, like Jaejoong getting thrashed by Changmin in the ‘Of Course’ game.
Though I doubt that particular moment will be relived in the upcoming Running Man episode, which appears to be focused on recreating X-man‘s biggest moments. But the preview seems to hint at the reenactment of the larger-than-life loveline between Kim Jong-kook and Yoon Eun-hye; specifically, this moment (at 3:10):
I know I’m looking forward to this special episode of Running Man. How about you? And what are your favourite X-man moments?
