HaHa was a guest on the July 26 installment of 'Thank You", and he was asked out of all the 'Running Man' members, where he ranked in terms of pay. He said, "I think I'm around the middle out of all the members. The one thing I'm sure about is that Yoo Jae Suk hyung gets paid the most. But still, I think he should be paid even more."
On the popularity of 'Running Man' in Southeast Asia, he said, "I really love variety shows, and they're my job. Now, when I go around in Southeast Asia, employees and people instantly recognize me. If I go to a convenience store, they recognize me. I think this is an unbelievable chance."
