Remmember when Gary make a promise with Jihyo, that, if the show continue till 8 years they'll do something (going out, or something, I can't remmember). I'm looking forward to it and it's almost 8 years but then he just quit. So sad..... 😭

He said if the show goes on for 10 years she'll be the girl that he knew the longest.

I think that episode was Ep. 142. "Then I'll bet you that it is the longest relationship I've ever had.'' Is what he said

such sad news. Even more sad that he cant juggle being a musician AND recording running man just 2 days every 14 days :(  I hope he does well as a musician again and that leessang can make a great comeback.

truth be told, he has looked more and more uninterested in the show in the last 2 years. doesnt put any real effort in anymore

I still can't comprehend this. I was so afraid of anything related to Running Man, I live off that show. I wasn't this sad about the news of someone's departure since DB5K's breakup.

oh no i am so sad.... i'm in tears. i didn't think rm would ever break up and i love all the cast members so much :'(((( gary was one of my favourite members i can't accept this omg..... TT i'm getting so sad thinking that rm would end sooner or later I REALLY CANT

this is just tragic :'( is this the start of the end?

kizaru_hijin Wednesday, October 26, 2016

to everyone who say he should come back, dont worry, there wont be rm for long, where he could come back anyway...he made the right decision, rm has no future with that stupid pd, ive said it since his first episode but all the stupid delulus didnt want to believe the obvious, didnt care about how bad the episodes were, only cared about their favorite members and thought, they were funny while not even doing anything funny, just because they like them, and now it will end, because youre too stupid and kept on eating their shit.

It's not okay to downgrade people just because they don't reach your own standard dear. And it's not okay to call other people stupid just because they delulu about the future of RM my dear ^_^

kizaru_hijin ELF_L Wednesday, October 26, 2016

so getting butthurt over the truth, seems youre one of those stupid delulus... and its not my standard, its of the most ppl, they wanted rm, not some childish variety show, that doesnt have anything special or different to other shows, with its trademark, nametag ripping and hunting games is what made rm famous, not the members, ppl only came to like the members later, but without these games rm would have never come so far, not with jae suk, not with jong ki or whoever...the ratings kept going down, showing that in south korea it didnt go well anymore, and globaly you could see the number of views and downloads for each episode also went down a lot for a while now, especially with the new pd... me downgrading the pd?dont worry, he downgraded himself with his own stupidity and how he loved to make a hype over jae suk and leave everyone else behind him and thought making fun of gary being "ugly", in almost every episode would be a funny thing to do...if you think gary is leaving because of his music, then you really are a delulu dumbass...even jihyos words proved, that its something else.

The show won't be the same without clueless Gary.
