It's thanks to Kim Jong Kook that SBS 'Running Man' will be able to continue.


The members planned to end the series in February, however, they ultimately decided to continue the show and stick together.  Chief producer Nam Seung Yong apologized and asked Kim Jong Kook if he would stay on with the show to which he agreed. The two men then met with the other 'Running Man' members, and this is where Kim Jong Kook posed the pivotal question, "Will you guys continue to run?"  With that, they all nodded in unison.  Both Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo were upset and hurt upon hearing the sudden news of the series drawing to a close but they did what was best for the team.


A representative stated, "Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo were quite upset.  However, the big decision was made to continue for all the 'Running Man' fans across the world who supported us until now.  We will resume all filming for 'Running Man.'"


Chief producer, Mr. Nam stated, "Although it was a tough decision to make we hope that many viewers will continue to support the show."


Netizens commented, "Please don't hurt the members' feelings again," "Don't give up," "I want to see the real raw 'Running Man' where they go all savage ripping their name tags."

    Im ok with them doing the ripping name tag race, but the problem is that they get hurt and they have to continue filming, if they still have the footage it would be nice if we as fans could ACTUALLY see how much the members have sacrificed for the show, like a running man behind the scenes, i dont like how the members get hurt and we have no idea that they are

    I hope they have more idols come as guest too.  I'm so happy it didn't end like they said.

    For how long can they keep this up because at some point it will eventually get cancelled. It sad yes but their past mistakes are catching up to them.

    this show defines kim jong kook. also i think running man is a really valuable korean reality show bc even though it is not popular at all in korea, it caters more towards international fans. idk about anyone else, but running man was my entrance into the korean entertainment scene and i was rlly sad after hearing its possible end
