It was a slow news week in the Running Man world but never fear – there be major filming BTS and Ji Hyo spam ahead. See, I always have you covered. Cheers!
Ratings episode 196
1. MBC Real Man 14.9
2. KBS 1 Night 2 Days 11.0

Ouch, ouch, ouch. The flashback episode had less than stellar ratings – Running Man came in 4th in the lineup of Sunday variety programs.
Next week on Running Man…
Idols, idols, idols, more idols, look I found some more idols hiding under this rock. Bora, Chan sung, Hoya, Jin Young, Kang Min Hyuk, Minho, and Sunggyu (yay- holla) guest star and face off against the Running Man cast team. I cannot for the life of me find a decent video preview, so you will have to make do with some BTS pics. Cheers!
On to the headlines!
Yes Virginia, Lee Kwang Soo is an Actor
In case you have forgotten amongst all of the Giraffe’s betraying antics, downright embarrassing stunts, and general dorkiness this guy is an actor. A pretty decent one actually (at least in my opinion). Kwang Soo has two up and coming projects where he shows off his day job- the summer drama “It’s Okay, It’s Love” (where he will act alongside drama heavyweights Jo In Sung and Gong Hyo Jin) and the upcoming film “Good Friends”.
So you want “proof” that Kwang Soo is an actor? Look no further, here be some recently released pics from both projects.
It’s Okay, It’s Love
Random SNS Updates
Because who wants a week without random Running Man cast SNS updates? Not I…..
Gary is shipping Monday Couple according to his recent Instagram update (he posted the award for best kiss, which he won for his Monday Couple smooch along with Ji Hyo):
꺄우!~ 감사합니다 드라마 피버!
Translation: Kyaa woo!~ Thank you DramaFever!
HaHa updated his twitter:
김승현선수.. 정말 수고하셨습니다.. 사랑합니다..
Translation: Player Kim Seung Hyun.. Really thank you for your hard work.. I love you..
Filming Updates- Including a stop at Haha’s restaurant
Pics galore have been floating about the interwebs showing the Running Man cast filming on May 19th and May 20th. One of the filming locations is rumored to be a notable location – it is the recently reopened restaurant that is owned by none other than Haroro. It is possible the cast only stopped by for a bite to eat, but alas I must post the pics. You can check out the pics below (Note- the cast was at HaHa’s joint on 5/20, the first set of pics is from the 5/19 filming).
At HaHa’s Restaurant:
Ji Hyo Pic Overload
This happens every week, I should be used to it. But I am not, because Ji Hyo continues to amaze me (is my girl crush showing?!).
For Yesse Summer Collection:
NBA and Alltrend:
Emergency Couple Singapore Fanmeet:
Because I cannot get enough of this GIF. Seriously.
do i spy myuk pd in one of the pics in haha’s restaurant? =) looks like they’re just going to eat, and not film, there. no matter the reason, it’s great that they’re there to support haha’s business.
I did some more investigating and I am now on the fence about whether the filming on the 20th took place there or not- I have updated the post appropriately 🙂 Thanks for bringing that up! It is great they are there to support the business, filming or not!
