Exciting news for 'Running Man' fans! The show will be bringing back the famed name tag race on the upcoming episode starring TWICE and Yeo Jin Goo


During an interview with Star News on May 26, producer Jang Chul Min talked about the show's signature game, and said, "We want to do the name tag race as well, but since we've been doing it for the past 6 years, the formation has become too obvious. For instance, the format with Kim Jong Kook hyung's overpowering character."

Despite the redundancy, the producers decided to uphold viewers requests to bring back the name tag race. Producer Lee Hwan Jin gave a hint about the upcoming episode and said, "Many people were asking about the name tag race, so we did it." He then complimented Yeo Jin Goo with the words, "He did so well. You will be able to see Yeo Jin Goo's new side." 


This much anticipated episode starring TWICE and Yeo Jin Goo is set to air June 5!

This is RM's chance to maybe spike the ratings for once and maybe raise a little more interest, so I hope they don't mess this up :/!

Finally. Like I don't fucking care, I love the name tag elimination. I love seeing the rm members running for their lives. Also the recent episodes, there's soooooooooooooooo much of talking. It's like 80% talk show 20% game. Like no. Pleasee.

When they do name tag race every single episode will be the day for me to stop watching RM. It's been fun but enough is enough.

YAY! With name tag race, this is what we call real running man. The program that I know well and really fall in love.

I love it but its dosent mean JK will win. You can see JK interview he say his body condition arent like before his always hurt and pain.you can see he stick something to his leg or body wentever there a game using strength.Btw all the best twice i hope twice can make the rating boost i hope they arent boring. but i really hope that PD invite 2PM or big bang again love to see it.

chiyasuho Friday, May 27, 2016

I think it more fair jongkook be with the guest.btw we dont know if JK win cause JK said his body arent like before he always had pain.you can see he stick something to his body went ever there a game using strength. it sad to hear JK say that. btw i love it went running man vs guest cause i love how running man work together. I hope 2PM can be a guest again and play more fun game!

I'm guessing Yoo Jin Goo is the guest for the episode and TWICE just appears for a name tag elimination race just like when EXO first came to running man.

It doesnt have to be name tag race, they could use an alternative tag elimination like finding an action that will eliminate other member like in episode Ghost (Jihyo and Suzy)

thats what a running man fan is! fist bump bro ^^

Or even maybe partner races like where they have bracelets together that have to be broken. I feel like that would be a slower less physically strenuous game since you're kind of attached to another person.

THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR. As if I wasn't excited enough already, now there's one more thing to look forward too :D
