Song Ji Hyo was devastated after leaving 'Running Man'.

In an interview with OSEN, her label said, "The members loved 'Running Man' a lot, and they were like family for the past 7 years. She was hurt deeply by what happened."

The label said, "After she heard she would be leaving, she had a really hard time. She cut off all communications and just cried her eyes out.

'Running Man' had one-sidedly kicked off both Song Ji Hyo and Kim Jong Kook in preparation for a second season that would launch in January. However, the process drew a lot of criticism and the show ultimately decided to end completely in February.

    I've re-watched RM from Season 1... the show was more 'edgy' and higher scale from the beginning until Season 2. Then, it kinds of became 'fluffy' since... but that's not what RM is all about - 'fluffy'. However, at the same time, you can't expect RM to be as active as they were before, which is demanding physically... At the same time, the decision to remove a close knit casts was 'wrong'. It was such a typical response - 'change the PD, now let's change the casts (rudely, without a courtesy of discussing with the casts). I don't think they realise that isn't the root of the 'problem' (low-ratings, in comparison) - whoever are making those decisions? They should have brought back some 'angst' - reformat... relauch... SBS is the BIG, BAD - BULLY!!!!!!

    tbh its sad that the show is ending, however im also relieved, i started watching the show since first episode, many fun and happy times, but after the old pd's left and the new ones took over, the show seems to be a drag to watch, its half as fun, the games just keep getting lamer and so boring, even though the cast try their best to keep up the laughs, but its not as enjoyable anymore, im only still watching only for the cast interactions and thats all, the games they play i cant care less about, its not a shocker why the ratings are dropping, if they continued to season 2 with different cast i dont think i will be watching it, just like family outing, what made family outing so enjoyable was the family bond the cast had, family outing season 2 never had that family bond which is why it was a flop, same rule applys to RM, RM wont be RM without the bond the cast had with eachother, the characteristics and personas the cast have created over the 7years is what made the show so fun and the games were entertaining to watch. but now the fun is half there and the entertaining part is gone, the show is dying and the only reason its survived is because of the cast. thats just my opinion.

    QUESTION : What if Running Man Season 2 with Kang Ho Dong (minus Jihyo and KJK) were to be a success, What would it means to Jihyo and KJK ? ANSWER : It would means that the PDs decision to remove Jihyo and KJK was right to think that Jihyo and KJK are not attractive enough to the public. This is why I do believe that Jihyo and KJK purposely did wanted to ruin the show and cancel the season 2. To save themselves, to save their image. CONCLUSION QUESTION : let me ask you, if you were Jihyo or KJK (imagine you're korean , and you know how Knetz react) WOULD you give an interview saying that you don't want to leave, that you didn't knew about your removal, that you had cried all day cutting communication with everybody and posting the name of the PDs responsible of your removal using your friend ID ? Would you do what Jihyo and KJK did knowing that it would cancel the show and put all the rest of the cast and staff out of work ? Would you do that sincerely ?

    Jihyo and KJK are very bad people, just because they can't accept to be fired, they will do anything to ruin the show ! They told the media to not agree to leave, they say they won't accept the salary and donate it, they named the PDs and hide it behind the ID of their "friends" ! They are happy now that show is cancelled and not having a season 2 ? how evil ! and all their fans are like : "poor Jihyo and KJK" ?? when all their actions were PURPOSELY made to destroy the show, without considering the rest of people working for this show and the fans who wanted the show to continu ! THEY ARE THE EVIL incarnated !

    Lol. Are u serious?? It's not their fault the show is cancelled. Its the PDs fault. They kicked out the two most popular and loyal members. And on top of that song ji hyo didn't even know about it until the news came out. And I'm pretty sure they are donating their salary because they don't want to accept the money from the people who didn't value them and their royality for the past 7 years. It's best the money goes to a good deed. Don't you get that show is cancelled because it all started with a few PDs decided to kick them out without notifying them? U are the one who is selfish because of all the Hateness.

    LOL. Jihyo made herself a public statement declaring that she doesn't want to leave the show, and that she didn't knew she was out before the news appeared. By saying so, she knew what would happen, because as a native person, she knows it more than anybody else who the public (and the fans) would react. It was all calculated ! She'a very very smart person, and she had manipulated all this. Re think about what happened step by step, carefully. You will understand why all the mess started with her.

    Okay. Let me explain this whole situation to you step by step. So, the PDS decided to kick them out, okay? and then it was later revealed that Song ji hoy wasn't informed. THIS WHOLE FUCKING SITUATION STARTED BECAUSE PDS MADE THE DECISION TO KICK THEM OUT. Everything has a root. The mess started because of the PDS why can't you understand it. Do you even have a brain? And who would want to leave a show where they feel at home for the past 7 years. And I am pretty sure if Song ji hoy and Jong ko left I'm sure the other members would want to leave too because they are all family and they are really close. The show was already ended when they decide to kick them out because a show can't be a show without the important STARS. :) you have a good time hating all you want without knowing every little details. :)

    hey moron ! i was replying to "anotherSONE" on my latest post, can you read properly instead of screaming ? PLUS, The show wasn't ended at all, Kang Ho Dong was supposed to come and make a Season 2. important Jihyo and KjK ? Let me laugh and tell you, if RUNNING MAN had a season 2 like it was supposed to before Jihyo decide to ruin everything, the season 2 could have been a succes. And of course, Jihyo and KJK would have never admitted that, because it would have be the proof that they were the problem of the low ratings

    I see a lot of people disagree with ur comments and tried to argue and make you understand but you won't and nobody's know what is going on in that head of yours. How can a human twists and turn things when things are obviously the other way around. Good luck. I hope you find peace one day. Oh have you heard song ji hoy is hosting a beauty show? :) have a nice day.

    it's good for her. Although she is in part responsible for Running Man S2 cancellation, I do not wish her bad things. I just post my critical opinion,

    I wanted to continu to watch Running Man, even a season 2, even without Jihyo or KJK, because I really cherished this TV Show, it had cheered me up when I was really down. But it's ok, I've found 1N2D, so I guess, it is time for me to move on.

    NO, the show wouldn't be the same wtihout Jihyo and KJK. But it would have been interesting to see the show with Kang Ho Dong, I believe it would be funny too, but in a different way.

    SHe is a very sentimental person, she also cried a lot when Gary left. after all that she has put in to the show for 7 years and the relationship with the other cast members, it is understandable that she will be very sad. I am glad she agreed to stay on until Feb to see the show come to a proper end. I think the PD of the show was not really the one at fault, more likely the higher ups wanted to revamp the show due to low ratings and somehow the news was delivered to her clumsily without a proper way to say goodbye.

    allkpop is sooo slow with news material.... other sources already have the PD in charge of their dismissal which is #FireGongHeeChul #FireGongHeeChul #FireGongHeeChul ... spread hashtag all over social media network so "SBS" gets it.
