It's only been a little over a month since Gary officially left 'Running Man', and now fans are facing an even more tragic reality with Song Ji Hyo and Kim Jong Kook also leaving the show.

After the official announcement about the departure of his former 'Running Man' members, Gary updated his Instagram with a sweet photo and message. He applauded Song Ji Hyo and Kim Jong Kook, writing, "You guys worked very very very hard. Thank you." Gary also added many thumbs-up emoticons to praise the hard effort of his members. 

We fans also thank Gary, Song Ji Hyo, and Kim Jong Kook for the wonderful 6 years on 'Running Man'. 

너무너무너무 고생 하셨습니다 그리고 감사했습니다

How is this any of Gary's fault? Gary gave notice that he wanted to leave the show to concentrate on his passion; music. Unfortunately, when it comes to ratings, Internation fans don't help to either raise ratings or generate income for the show. Ji Hyo found out after the news leaked the information and Kookie, just beforehand. You can't do that to two of the original members who helped make the show great in the first place. The one great thing is I can imagine Ji hyo finding out out, calling YJS asking " Oppa, what's going on? and YJS going I don't know but I'm just as mad and I rather just have the show end now than to have friction between the members because we are familly!"

he is the trigger for this whole thing. if gary hadn't left, the PD would not think of to replace members. it's that simple

Wrong! If anything, after losing Gary they would have tried their best to keep the rest of the members. Ratings started dropping way before Gary left and a change was needed but the way the Head PD for Runningman handled it was just beyond idiotic.

The PD destroyed the show. What was done to KJK and SJH is a real shame. They worked hard for years and were kicked out like trash. Even if they stay until the last episode in February it's not acceptable.

The new PD destroyed Running Man. I know that it wasn't doing well these days, but kicking out people who worked very hard for several years is not the right solution, especially without any prior notice. I loved the show so much, it was my second Korean variety show that I watched, but now I don't even want to watch it as I'm so mad at the PDs...

Apparently there isn't going to be any running man to watch anyways :/ so mad at the pd ><

Gallifreyan7 Happyandplay Friday, December 16, 2016

I stopped watching Running Man because I wasn't motivated enough to watch Gary's departure. Now I don't want to watch the final ep' because I'm really angry. It was my favorite show and it's ending in such a disppointing and wrong way...

Happyandplay Gallifreyan7 Friday, December 16, 2016

I watched the episode with Gary's farewell and I cried, it was so sad. I watched RM since the beginnings when Joong Ki was there, and Lizzy as well. The new PDs ruined the show, they could end it well or something, but they made the fans mad and I don't even want to watch the farewell episode because it feels forced and I know that Ji Hyo and Jong Kook are really hurt by the staff's actions towards them. I hate it that it ends like that :(

jayjaythecutie Happyandplay Friday, December 16, 2016

The season ends in feb. I'm like TT

Gallifreyan7 Happyandplay Saturday, December 17, 2016

I was there since the beginning too. I know what you feel T_T
