Running Man Episode Guide

Click on the episode number to access a link to the streaming episode with English subs. The uploads and subs are not of my making, they are found on a variety of sites that offer the show with English subtitles (and in no way do I take any credit /ownership of the linked videos, all credit goes to the site at the other end of the link. My motive in providing the links is to give fellow fans an organized and easily accessible way to watch Running Man). I have tried to stay away from sites that use adfly or another of the “earn a buck for this link” programs. While there are advertisements I made a conscious effort to steer clear of them as much as possible (sorry about the later episodes for non drama fever subscribers, this site can be a bit heavy on the ads for non subscribers).

As parting words, I urge you to do the following: please let me know if a link is not working- I will do my best to find a working version, let me know what you think of the episodes- love or hate, and more importantly enjoy! And run!

The episode where Jae Suk honed his water gun mastery skills (and had his pants pulled down in RMs infamous scandal). This was the only episode where I thought the cast went a little too far…the insults were, I hate to say it, insulting and not always in a funny way. Besides the last bully like challenge the episode was fun. Unfortunately there is the large black hole at the end that keeps me hoping that we never enter that territory again – just my opinion. While I do not blame the cast  I think this challenge was a little too mean for variety. Lesson learned.

I thoroughly enjoyed the return to the games that made the early episodes of Running Man super addicting. Punishments, running balls, and the 1 vs. x game have made a come back as of late. The return to the roots of RM is welcome, due to the many format changes these games have not been played for some time. The Running Man cast working together was another highlight of this episode, any time they can combine their deviously trained minds into a team of awesomeness is pure viewing pleasure.

Monday Couple Moments: Gary supports Ji Hyo as she descends slippery stairs- Haha feels like a third wheel

Comments

A strange concept made all that much stranger by the guests- a comedian and an actress. Parts of this episode dragged on (PDs, I know you meant well with the YJS- JSJ- JJH trio but this seriously became a broken comedy routine) while others were laugh out loud funny (the car challenge for example). Not perfect, not terrible, and pretty entertaining if you can forgive some of the games tendency to drag on.

The set caught fire. Literally. What a big bang of an opening. The guest stars were spunky and fun, my only complaint is that the premise itself- collect nine tails- seemed to be unevenly advantageous to a few (and the eliminations seemed too easy).

Comments

The cast takes on the challenges that have been eating away at them for four years. Because this is Running Man the cast does not just watch flash backs and comment – instead they time travel back to the individual challenges and try their luck a second time. The challenges revisited are the 1st superpowers episode, the Sherlock Holmes episode, and 2 Yoomes Bond specials (the first one and the jail episode).

I really love this episode, but I realize I love it because I am a long time viewer. Objectively this is not the episode to show a newbie. For fans this is golden. I would give the episode five stars for sheer happiness as a fan, but I need to temper that with the fact that a newbie would be confused- plus all three challenges shown previously took up one episode each. In other words – this was rushed if you consider the challenges.

The Ddakji game took up about 66% of the episode. I love the message of these episodes (the teamwork, seeing the students work together) but I have to admit the Ddakji game was a bit long for my attention span. I still laughed and cheered at the unexpected outcome.

Monday couple moments: Gary burns with jealousy as Ji Hyo plays the poporo game with Seo Joon

Comments

The cast and their “love partners” are tasked with competing in several challenges, the endgame is to have the strongest rock (at the end each team tries to destroy another team’s rock with their own). Part science (well, more like semi-scientific musings), part dumb luck, and a whole lot of fun.

The cast plays in the Asian Dream Cup and they do not fail to live up to the precedence they set for themselves. Entertaining. As this is Running Man’s 200th episode the cast all have challenges they must complete during the Dream Cup, if they fail they face an extreme punishment. Everyone gets a second chance at a safari – with more challenges they must complete (hint, they are more like punishment) in order to avoid the most insane punishment in Running Man history. Love this episode. Hilarious and extremely watchable.

I loved the final obstacle course, mostly because it fulfilled my need to see a really ridiculous course to determine the winner. As the idols battled the running man team it became obvious who the real winners would be, so to a degree this episode was predictable early on. Still fun, just not so amazing I want to re-watch it (at least right now, talk to me in six months)

The cast and guests take part in a mad dash to win favor with this episodes MC (Yoo Jae Suk, who is not on a team for this episode) while preparing for the final quiz show. This episode was heavily edited (in that at the beginning the teams were together already and a lot of the quiz eliminations were not shown). I understand that with this many guests it is hard to show a lot of what is happening but I really felt that the editing was a detriment to the overall feel of the episode.

I honestly think I liked this episode more than I should. Objectively it wasn’t anything amazing- the games were okay and the secret mission was not groundbreaking. Yet the way the secret mission played out was refreshing, in that no one seemed to take note when they should have (come on cast, you have been down this road a dozen plus times before!). I guess I liked it because it felt genuine. And it was pretty funny to boot.

Comments

Ji Hyo is a reluctant Snow White as the cast plus guest chase after the secret to awake the poisoned princess.

Monday Couple Moments: Gary and Ji Hyo come clean about how they have felt in the past and have a mini date.

Comments

The challenge- gather puzzle pieces to form a world map by taking part in challenges at different restaurants (featuring cuisine from different corners of the globe). The final challenge is a fusion cuisine cook off. Joo Won was so quiet but dedicated while Seok Cheon had a lot of attention called to him due to his sexuality during this episode. The episode was funny, and the Monday Couple bits were amazing for a starving shipper. At least one of the stars I give this episode is based on the Monday Couple moments alone.

Monday couple moments: Gary shows his jealousy when Heejoon compliments (and wrestles) with Ji Hyo

Comments

First generation idols appear alongside currently performing idols as they meet the Running idols- and have to compete to figure out the mystery of the triangle. The guest stars, specifically the first generation idols (which are seasoned in the world of variety) were a hoot. They kind of stole the show from the newer idols, but it would be hard to keep up with the likes of Heejoon and Jiwon. This episode was well paced, with great banter and interesting games. A contender for one of the top fifteen (maybe top ten) episodes of 2014.

The cast go celebrity hunting as they try to find the perfect teammate to join up with for an ultimate Alkkagi challenge. The first half of this episode is laugh out loud funny as the cast embarks on a recruiting mission. The latter half veers towards boredom as they play Alkkagi together. Even with an awesome crowd the sheer length of the game kills it. At least for me.

A math challenge faces our cast and guests as they are faced with insane tasks revolving around theme park rides. As the cast and guests complete their challenges they receive numbers and functions, with an end goal of calculating zero. I really enjoyed this episode. While the number of guests made the segments fragmented each challenge (and the duo completing it) were entertaining. I am eager to see part two.

Five actresses known for playing evil/tough characters appear on the show; their mission is to figure out which male cast member is the second generation heir. The actresses (plus Ji Hyo) are paired up with a male cast member, if they win challenges they have the ability to swap out who is partnered with who in the final name tag race. I seriously loved this episode – the high maintenance actresses and the frustration they caused was hilarious while the final name tag challenge was well played and exciting.

The cast of the drama My Lovely Girl guest star in an audition based race. Cast members are voted off of teams, chosen if their team loses a challenge. This episode was really difficult to rate because it had one of the best 15 minutes of Running Man I have seen all year (look towards the third portion of this episode – let’s just say the final audition piece is golden). Yet the rest of the episode was pretty predictable (in the guest’s favor) and the guests were not so amazing they left a huge impression. So basically – I am giving this 4 stars and at least 1 of them are because of my new favorite girl group DNA.

Monday Couple Moments: Gary forsakes Ji Hyo, but jealousy appears

Comments

Two families joined together due to marriage are forced to take part in games – all to get to the cut throat challenge of the in laws. Shin Min Ah is adorable, as always. This was a good episode in terms of guest / cast interactions – with only two guest stars it was not overwhelmed by others but not so focused on the cast members it became irrelevant to even consider the guests. In a way this episode kind of reminded me of old Running Man, though I have yet to really pinpoint exactly why (pacing maybe?!)

Seven super heroes awake from a cryogenic state – too bad they are sans super powers. Our super heroes have to take part in several missions to regain their lost powers and defeat the anti-hero once and for all. This episode was okay, just okay. It was disappointing that the heroes did not have a chance to actually use their powers. I get that the name of the game was teamwork…but when it comes to Running Man the most powerful teamwork can be displayed simply (like the Han River challenges, for example).
