Ya Man! Time to see HaHa fan boy, Ji Hyo show the airport what style is, and Yoo Jae Suk to once again (again again again – insert echo of amazingness here) show what a great human being he is. Running Man headlines straight ahead. Cheers!

2. MBC Dad! Where Are We Going? 14.8
3. SBS Running Man 14.3
Running Man jumped three percentage points, I would be lying if I did not attribute part of this to Exo appearing on the show.
Next week on Running Man…
The baseball-rific challenge continues as Suzy and Ryu Hyun Jin guest star. The cast plus guests will be traveling to Gwangju during the episode, which is Suzy’s home town. I am assuming we will also learn who won in the Exo versus Running Man name tag challenge (and I applaud the PDs for making this two episodes for business reasons – ratings booster!). Check out the preview below (note, this is kind of like a non-preview because it features scenes from Ryu Hyun Jin’s past appearance and not any new scenes from next episode):
HaHa set to perform in Jamaica?!
Damion Crawford, the most daebak diplomat I have ever seen, apparently sought out HaHa and his rapping partner Skull. Visiting Korea for a cultural exchange, Crawford had heard of Haha and Skull’s rapping and reggae stylings, leading him to request a meeting. So how did the meeting go? Like this:
Haroro was a bit shy to start things off
Then he got all Mr. Mong on us with the English
HaHa got more comfortable and “Ya manned” a bunch
Then he freaked out at the invitation – to appear at a festival held in February 2014 in Jamaica. The festival is said to feature the likes of big name stars like Rianna. If this happens I will freak out – because this is kind of HaHa’s uber dream. And I like Haroro. So yeah, I will be crying and cheering right alongside him!
Song Ji Hyo’s Sunday = 10k (and she rocks the airport fashion)
Why can’t I look like this at the airport? I always seem to show up in sweat pants with my hair frizzed out (seriously, my travel look is borderline slob, comfort you know?) Running Man’s ace recently showed off a stylish look as she departed Korea for Hong Kong. Pics? Here you go:
Stylish airport garb aside, it has been announced that Ji Hyo will be running in a marathon this weekend. Miss Mong is set to show off her running skills on the 17th via Nike’s We Run Seoul 10K, competing alongside other celebrities such as Lee Sang Yoon, WGM 4D couple Jung Joon Young and Jung Yoo Mi, Julien Kang, and Park Soo Jin. My money is on Ji Hyo (well, figuratively not literally), I mean the girl kind of made a job out of running around. Ji Hyo Unnie fighting!
God Yoo is in a minor car accident – but manages to calm everyone involved down…because that is the power of Yoo Jae Suk
Yes, my heart dropped. I saw a headline that said Yoo Jae Suk had been in a car accident. I felt like I just watched someone punch a puppy. It was not good. Luckily, the headlines sounded far worse than the reality of the situation.
Yesterday (while filming Infinity Challenge,) Yoo Jae Suk was crossing a road when he was side swiped by a car. The PD of Infinity Challenge, Kim Tae Ho, said that the car could not stop in time and collided with the Nation’s MC. The collision was light and did not cause injury. Yoo Jae Suk is said to have told the staff:
“If anyone asks, tell them I’m fine and not to worry. I’ll do better to film safely in the future.”
Because Yoo Jae Suk is the nicest person in the freaking world, he spent time after the accident calming the driver down before sending him on his way. Really? A car hits him and Yoo Jae Suk takes care of the driver and then promises to film more safely in the future?! Seriously, how is there someone this nice? I would have been all….well, you can guess why I will not win the nicest person of the year award.
The Giraffe Works
Seriously, this kid is freaking busy! Kwang Soo has been confirmed for the upcoming film 5 Eagle Brothers. LKS will star alongside 2PM’s Chansung, Yoon Sang Hyun, Song Sae Byuk, and Lee Aiee. The film is about five brothers who experience trials and tribulations while trying to patch up their family troubles. The film will be released next year.
While not busy filming for a live action movie, Kwang Soo has been busy lending his voice to the Korean edition of Dinosaur Adventure 3D, a 20th Century Fox production. Kwang Soo is voice acting the main character Patchi, who is the smallest and weakest dinosaur in the dino fam who eventually becomes a dino hero! Wait, are we talking about Running Man? Does Patchi like to sell the other dinosaurs out? Does Patchi like to piss off the T-Rex? Because if he does, I am pretty sure he is the giraffe in dinosaur form. Just saying.
Gary and Gil set to kick off 1st Asia Showcase this Month
Leessang, the hip hop duo comprised of Kang Gary and Gil, will kick off their first Asian showcase on November 30th. The tour is set to visit 5 countries. Tour sponsors CJ E&M commented that Gary and Gil have developed a fan base outside of Korea due to their variety appearances (Gil is a fixed member of Yoo Jae Suk and HaHa’s other show Infinity Challenge), giving them the chance to do this multi country tour. LeeSsang fighting!
