Gary: Master of fan service?
April 11th marked a dream come true for any fan of Kang Gary– a shout out from the star himself to meet in person. The conversation started on twitter when Gary offered the following shout out:
“For those who are having a hard time in life and need someone to talk to, whoever replies first, let’s meet up and talk”
A lucky female fan snatched the prize by replying with a simple: “Me!”
Gary responded: “Let’s meet next week. I will send you a private message about the time and place.”
The fan could not help but tweet back in excitement: “Daebak! I don’t think I will be able to sleep. Wheeee,”
Gary: Master of martial arts?
A recent broadcast found Gary being introduced as nothing less than a Korean Chuck Norris. His past achievements were announced as: Attended bodyguard school, 8th degree black belt in taekwando, 8th degree black belt in hapkido, and a skilled boxer.
Humble Gary took to twitter in regards to the broadcast:
“Hul~ Now I’ve become a fight master. I’m embarrassed because it seems like a lie. Am I that impressive? My friends will poke fun at me about my supposed fighting ability again… Oh well~~~ I’m going to go eat pho now.”
The news of Gary’s martial arts past is no secret, while appearing on Yoo Jae Suk’s talk show Come to Play in 2009 he commented on his fighting ability. While I cannot say for certain if all of the accolades are true I would like to think that they are- because that makes his persona on Running Man all that much more endearing.
