Swimmer Park Tae Hwan displayed his aggressiveness on the latest episode of ‘Running Man’.
The episode revolved around each member picking a number, with the highest number being picked as a designated target, whom the other ‘Running Men’ would have to eliminate. Once the target was eliminated, the next-highest number would be called as the new target. The target, on the other hand, had the power to rip others’ name tags, with the victim being eliminated and the target assuming the number of the victim.
Park Tae Hwan became a target quickly at #7, but after ripping Song Ji Hyo’s (#1) name tag, he assumed her number and became the last in line to become the ‘chosen’. However, after a plot by the other members fearing his strength, his nametag was ripped by the current target (Gary) and he was forced to go to jail.
But, as always, there was a twist: the deployment of a new rule where jailed members had the opportunity to return to the playing field. With six members currently in jail, only two lucky winners could return to the race – and by fortuitous coincidence, Park Tae Hwan was revived along with Kim Jong Kook.
The final match was a showdown between Park Tae Hwan, Kim Jong Kook, and Lee Kwang Soo (!!!). Seeking revenge for his earlier elimination, Kim Jong Kook tore off Lee Kwang Soo’s name tag. He had little time to revel in his victory, however, as Park Tae Hwan realized that it was only down to the two of them and promptly caught the ‘Tiger’ off-guard, snatching the final victory.
