Popular SBS variety show, ‘Running Man‘, will be airing a special episode featuring members of Korea’s hottest girl groups.
The special, which will air over two weeks on August 7th and 14th, will star miss A‘s Suzy, T-ara‘s Jiyeon, and f(x)‘s Sulli and Luna.
PD Cho Hyo Jin of SBS’s ‘Running Man’ spoke through Star News and revealed, “‘Running Man’ was recorded with girl group members that are currently in high school for the past two days at the Wootdali Model Village.” This female high school student special features a ‘pairing race’ where the ‘Running Man’ members get paired with girl group members while wearing uniforms from the 60s and 70s.
‘Running Man’ PD Jo Hyo Jin remarked that the cast members welcomed the guests with open arms. “Their faces shone because of the girl group special,” he said. “The filming carried on with a happy atmosphere. Song Ji Hyo put up a great performance, as well.”
Netizens already received a hint about the episode’s shenanigans through fan-taken pictures, which revealed the girls getting piggyback rides from the ‘Running Man’ cast members. Looks like SBS managed to create yet another heart-pounding episode for this urban-action variety show!
When asked how the idea came about, PD Cho said, “The movie ‘Sunny‘ has been making waves so we came up with an idea of bringing back things we did back in the day so that the whole family can watch and enjoy together. We have a lot of fun scenes planned with missions where the members will definitely feel the generational differences with each other.
He ended by saying, “There’s also a surprise reversal in the end, so please look forward to it.”
