Gary and Song Ji Hyo demonstrated why they were one of TV's favorite couples on the latest episode of 'Running Man'!


Although the 'couple race' format of this episode was nothing new, the guests selected to partner up with the cast members surely were. From rookie singer Kim Ye Rim to senior actor Park Sang Myun, to real-life couple Jo Jung Chi and Jung In, the couples ran the gamut.


The highlight, however, was the 'Monday Couple' duo, who took advantage of the format to snag the win for this episode!


In contrast to usual episodes, where the winner was awarded with a gold piece of some sort, this episode found the couples starting off with their own gold medallions, which they would have to keep -- or lose -- as the games progressed. After a gauntlet of missions, two couples had tied for the most amount of gold they carried, one of them being the Monday Couple.

To determine the final winner, each couple split up by themselves and asked to write down their choice between 'gold' and 'couple' on a sheet of paper. If they both specified 'gold', their winnings would be distributed among the remainder of the cast. If one of them wrote 'couple' and the other wrote 'gold', they would be able to keep the winnings. However, if both of them wrote 'couple', they would win twice the amount of gold they carried!


With the rest of the cast members waiting in anticipation, they both revealed their answers. Both Gary and Song Ji Hyo had written down 'couple', granting them the best conclusion possible!


Struck in the heat of the moment, guest Kim Kwang Gyu chanted, "Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!", ending the episode on a definite high note.


Check out the full episode below!

Gary and Song Ji Hyo were duel spies in episode 132, Actors vs. Singers. They were just on opposite teams, and Gary actually did a good job, but KJK figured it out and ripped his nametag. But at least Lee KwangSu ripped Ji Hyo's!

In last weeks running man, one of the hints is " number _&_ are single" and it ended up being Gary and KJK. That means kwangsoo is dating someone...

You need to brush up on your logic. Just because something says person A and person B are single doesn't mean that person C is not single.

Running Man hasn't had a good couple race since episode 94. Though this episode had it's moments, they were in one large group most of the time, and therefore the "couple" concept was rather lacking. And only the final boat-making game was really "couple" based.

both couples didn't know that they would get twice the winnings if they both choose "couple"

the scenario was set up to determine whether they want the gold or they choose each other.

it was only after both couples decisions were announced then the production team dropped the bombshell of double winnings for the couple that chose each other
