I noticed on older 'Running Man' episodes that he seemed to be at a loss as to what to focus on between his main career and variety shows and I guess he chose to leave variety

Keep on making dope music

Good luck in everything you do, Gary oppa! We support your decision. Fighting♥

Runningman cast and crew has been very supportive, in the past few episodes such as the "name that song" game where they played the song he wrote for Brown Eyes and the episode where he had to go into the studio and create a tune with all the members voices and the episode where they showed his house and it was basically a music studio. Before anything else, he is a musician. Runningman cast will always be family and he is smart to get off a sinking boat.

I think you had everyone until "sinking ahip"

That's kool... Gonna miss him for sure... I hope he can make guest appearences in the future...

kizaru_hijin Friday, October 28, 2016

he did the right thing, he jumped off of a sinking ship...and that retarded pd thought it would be a good idea to make fun of gary in pretty much every single episode, about his ugliness, when he isnt even the ugliest member...

kizaru_hijin Friday, October 28, 2016

of course it was too much for him, and his image would have been ruined, if he stayed...he would just be an ugly fool staying around there, while that stupid pd only cares for jaesuk and only made him look better, while he shits on everyone else...rm is going to end soon, i already said that since a while ago, with that pd nothing will work, but sadly the stupid delulus still eat that shit and only care for the members, while they cant accept the fact that the show keeps getting worse...

Wouldn't it be crazy after Gary left RM suddenly he and Jihyo announce that they're dating in real life

maragana kevin_lau Friday, October 28, 2016

lmao. That's the silver lining for me. They mentioned that they shouldn't date especially since they are co-workers and that it would be weird to date as co-workers, but even weirder if they had broken up but were still on the show together. Maybe it's Gary's way of trying to date JiHyo now that they're no longer co-workers. lol.

BigBlueagain maragana Friday, October 28, 2016

-or- they DID date and broke up and that's why he's leaving.

There will be no more Mr Random Capable, Monday Couple, True Gary show and Peaceful Gary amongst many other memorable traits that makes him unique, that makes him himself. I will miss seeing these, but I will tell myself to be eternally grateful that he has brought us so much joy in his 6 years on Running Man, for fundamentally even existing on the show. For this, I thank him.

Rocky_rokiyah Friday, October 28, 2016

Am speechless and shocked. Really want him to stay in RM...but how??😔😔😞Gary Oppaaaaaaa....

liliparkyoung Friday, October 28, 2016

still it's hard for me. But I will continue to watch it because it's unfair for the other members they also worked hard for RM.Wish you all the best Gary
