Get excited!  You already heard the news from YG Entertainment that Black Pink will be guesting on 'Running Man' - now you can hear more in detail from the show's producer Jung Chul Min himself!


SEE ALSO: Black Pink is currently filming 'Running Man'!



He said on November 29, "I saw Black Pink on 'Weekly Idol.'  They gave off a raw vibe and made me wonder how it'd be if they were not in a studio but were running around in a wide space," explaining his reason for casting them.


The girls recently had taken part in the recording on November 28 in Jeonju. You can see a shot from the shoot down below.  PD Jung Chul Min added about the girls' guest appearance, "Black Pink were fun and bright.  Because they're new to variety, they had an unpredictable charm.  You can look forward to it."


Their episode will air on December 18!

It would be more interesting to know why YG allowed this and how the PD convinced him.

Why wouldn't he allow it, running man no1 variety in and out of Korea, guesting on the show will bring more success to the girls, as a girl group who just debuted this is a big step on their career to be on running man, only A list celebrities go there. It is also good for the show itself, to bring a trendy girlgroup will increase thier ratings so its a win-win situation

A lot of show appearances would mean a win-win-situation. We are talking about YG here. He didnt let BP go on any tv shows for their debut, beside Inkigayo. What was the reason for that?

It's still their debut, I don't consider much of a comeback more of a series . They just debuted 3 months ago, but yeah in the YG official statement they said they were not planning any variety appearances since he wanted BP to meet fans only thru music, but the demands increased so much that they asked for blackpink TV, then weekly idol. After weekly idol blackpink got good reviews right now the episode on YouTube has almost 2 million views. Since they did so well they were casted by running man PD and am guessing more variety appearances to come. In the end YG cares about image making, and so far the girls did not ruin that it's actually the opposite so YG will let them out more

Thats reasonable. I still wonder what kept him from sending them to variety shows in the first place. Its kind of silly to have BP meet their fans through music, when their music is from Teddy. And now they have their second show and its even RM, one of toughest shows on television.

Other idols get famous thru variety shows, acting, looks, a fancam of them while they are dancing sexy like EXID's case and many other ways idols use to get popular. YG doesn't want that, he wants music to be the sole focus, wants to prove that his idols are more Artists than Idols, and that a Singer priority shud be the music at no1 and then other things can come later
