Get excited!  You already heard the news from YG Entertainment that Black Pink will be guesting on 'Running Man' - now you can hear more in detail from the show's producer Jung Chul Min himself!

He said on November 29, "I saw Black Pink on 'Weekly Idol.'  They gave off a raw vibe and made me wonder how it'd be if they were not in a studio but were running around in a wide space," explaining his reason for casting them.

The girls recently had taken part in the recording on November 28 in Jeonju. You can see a shot from the shoot down below.  PD Jung Chul Min added about the girls' guest appearance, "Black Pink were fun and bright.  Because they're new to variety, they had an unpredictable charm.  You can look forward to it."

Their episode will air on December 18!

It would be more interesting to know why YG allowed this and how the PD convinced him.

Why wouldn't he allow it, running man no1 variety in and out of Korea, guesting on the show will bring more success to the girls, as a girl group who just debuted this is a big step on their career to be on running man, only A list celebrities go there. It is also good for the show itself, to bring a trendy girlgroup will increase thier ratings so its a win-win situation

A lot of show appearances would mean a win-win-situation. We are talking about YG here. He didnt let BP go on any tv shows for their debut, beside Inkigayo. What was the reason for that?

gigi9 cpttsubasa Thursday, December 1, 2016

It's still their debut, I don't consider much of a comeback more of a series . They just debuted 3 months ago, but yeah in the YG official statement they said they were not planning any variety appearances since he wanted BP to meet fans only thru music, but the demands increased so much that they asked for blackpink TV, then weekly idol. After weekly idol blackpink got good reviews right now the episode on YouTube has almost 2 million views. Since they did so well they were casted by running man PD and am guessing more variety appearances to come. In the end YG cares about image making, and so far the girls did not ruin that it's actually the opposite so YG will let them out more

Thats reasonable. I still wonder what kept him from sending them to variety shows in the first place. Its kind of silly to have BP meet their fans through music, when their music is from Teddy. And now they have their second show and its even RM, one of toughest shows on television.

Other idols get famous thru variety shows, acting, looks, a fancam of them while they are dancing sexy like EXID's case and many other ways idols use to get popular. YG doesn't want that, he wants music to be the sole focus, wants to prove that his idols are more Artists than Idols, and that a Singer priority shud be the music at no1 and then other things can come later

Because BlackPink has that free spirit, no-ego vibe. they look cool but they know when to be humble and how to treat people without looking too arrogant just because they're from YG. They're special and YG's lucky and amazing to have gathered them.

Calamity10 Wednesday, November 30, 2016

I dont buy it. For sure YG is pushing BP to guest in variety shows as well as his other artists.

NoahL Calamity10 Wednesday, November 30, 2016

YG's stock fell to all time low... No body writing nv article about it lol...

NoahL Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Write article*

7amdowh Calamity10 Wednesday, November 30, 2016

They are finally picking their shits together ? there have been lots of complains, specially after blackpink debut so yah

gigi9 Calamity10 Thursday, December 1, 2016

On the conference of Kpopstar6 he hinted that a change is coming

Calamity10 7amdowh Thursday, December 1, 2016

The complaints became bigger after 2ne1 disbanded and Nam Taehyun left YG. So yeah, YG is sending his artist to variety shows to make up for the lost thats why I dont believe the Running Man pd.

Calamity10 gigi9 Thursday, December 1, 2016

Well thats good if there will be a big change in YG especially the unfair treatment in his artist -especially Winner.

gigi9 Calamity10 Thursday, December 1, 2016

wasn't it cleared out the the reason for WINNER's, long hiatus was due to namtae's mental health so how is it YG's fault? What, was he supposed to do? Plus there is more to the winner situation than we know, ppl say Nam taehyun unfollowed Winner's members since a year ago and now he decided to leave completely no one knows what truly happened. It's easy to blame everything on YG but in reality there is always more to what they allowed us to know. Like how VIPs were angry at YG blaming him for the delay of bigbang made full album it turns out it had nothing to do with YG, Gdragon did not finish writing that was all there is to it

gigi9 Thursday, December 1, 2016

*completely leave the group
