What exactly made Ji Hyo said that?? Read on to find out!
Before the fan meeting organised by ONE channel later this evening, the Running Man members Ji Suk Jin, Kim Jong Kook, Song Ji Hyo, Haha and Kang Gary held a press conference yesterday to tell us more about how they feel about Singapore, their fans and even gave us an idea on what fans could expect from tonight’s show!
Since they are in Singapore, it’s definitely important to know their first impression of this little red dot!
Suk Jin: Singapore is beautiful and it’s my first time in Singapore.
Haha: This is my 2nd time in Singapore. I love Singapore! And chili crab!
Jong Kook: This is my 3rd time in Singapore. The trees are very big, streets are very clean and people are very nice. When asked if he could become the Mascot of Singapore’s tree, he mentioned that he talked a lot about trees the last time he was here in Singapore! Oh kookie, why you so cute? ^^
Ji Hyo: Thank you for your warm welcome!
Gary: This is my 2nd day in Singapore and I tried chili crab, it was delicious! And I also have the chance to tour around some clubs in Singapore.
As a member in Running Man, Gary said that this was his first experience in variety program and it’s a great honor participating in Running Man. He had met a lot of awesome people and of course, had lots of fun and good energy from the members and crew in the show!
As for the only female member in Running Man, Ace Ji Hyo definitely felt some difference as the only female in the show but she doesn’t think that the rest of the member treat her differently. Since it’s being part of the Running Man family, she felt that it doesn’t matter if she’s a female or male. Haha and Jong Kook also added that that Ji Hyo is “Superman” and is “even strong than the rest sometimes!”
On the expectation of tonight’s show, Haha said that the performance would definitely be very engaging and he urged the crowd to have loads of fun! While on the other hand, Suk Jin requested the crowd to look out for the Monday Couple performance!!! WHOOP!! That surely got me excited! ^^
The media then start the ball rolling with a really direct question to the Monday Couple.
If you have caught Episode 163, you should know that after three longggggg years, Gary finally kissed Ji Hyo! I re-watched that video several times and I couldn’t get over it because it’s too cute! -blush-
Ji Hyo was challenged with the question on how she felt about the kiss while one also wondered why Gary is so courageous these days? The Monday Couple appeared to be shy when answering these questions. Gary admitted that he was a bit crazy at that moment and as for Ji Hyo, she stuttered a little and you could see her giggling away before she replied….”It was good!”
This got the Running Man members and everybody else super excited (all the members even stood up!!!!). Haha went ahead and chanted “KISS KISS!”
When asked what kind of power the members would like to take away and from which member, Haha said he wants the strength of Jong Kook and loveliness of the Monday couple while Jong Kook wants Haha’s son (!) and Suk Jin wants Haha’s betrayal style! Haha also joked that he want to take away some age from Suk Jin!
Even though Kwang Soo was not present at the press conference, he was definitely not forgotten! One reporter asked why is there a less focus on the tearing of name tags in the show these days (in Korean!!!) and Suk Jin commented that her korean was better than Kwang Soo’s! Hah! The easy brothers spirit indeed!
Gary then replied that the episodes with the name tags tearing are not broadcasted yet but meanwhile, they are exploring new things and hope to develop the show/games in a more fun and exciting manner.
Was there a time where it was too hard and you wish you stop running in the show? If yes, which episode?
Jong Kook, Haha & Suk Jin: Every episode!!!
Running Man members fashion have been a great inspiration to many fans from all over the world. So how do you feel as a trendsetter?
Gary: It’s a great honor and it feels awesome to have so many fans following our trend. Thank you so much for following. In the show, we have uniforms and we try to them as fashionable as possible. As for the name tag, it has also became a trend and in the club yesterday, I heard someone had a name tag at the back of his shirt!
Haha: There are a lot of people wearing Ji Hyo’s cap as well!
If you could create an opponent idol team to compete against, who would it be?
Gary: Recently, Shinhwa, the first generation idol group appeared in the show but we did not managed to win them. So it’s good to have them back in the show.
When Ji Hyo was asked about how Running Man has affected her daily life, example, phobia of listening to bells and people touching her back, Suk Jin had to answer for her because she was extremely tired! I have to agree that she looked really tired throughout the press conference! Sigh, poor thing :(! But anyway, Suk Jin said that there wasn’t a lot of differences except for the fact that they always have a VJ running behind them so sometimes, they get frightened by them.
Before the press conference ended, each individual member thanked their fans for their love and support all these while and they also added they would strive to be even better! Suk Jin also hope that one day, the Running Man members will be able to film in Singapore, with an overlooking view of the Singapore Flyer!
WELL, I’m sure that is definitely EVERY Singapore’s Running Man fans wish. Let’s hope that would really happen SOON? :)
