Producers of SBS' 'Running Man' have made an official apology to Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo as well as fans of the variety show.

Yesterday, the stars' agencies revealed they had been blind-sided by the news they were leaving 'Running Man', and longtime viewers expressed disappointment about the way producers handled the matter. The SBS producers have now responded with an official apology as follows:

"The producers of SBS' 'Running Man' are making a statement on the current controversy concerning the change in members.

The 'Running Man' producers have been working with the goal of the last 10 days of January 2017 for season 2 in mind.

During this process, reports of the reorganization involving Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo unexpectedly made the news when we didn't fully communicate with the 'Running Man' members. We ended up hurting Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo, who were like family for the past 7 years. For that, we sincerely apologize to them.

The 'Running Man' producers also feel ashamed in front of the viewers, who've loved 'Running Man' for so long.

We once again sincerely apologize for not being more deeply considerate of Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo. We also apologize to the rest of the 'Running Man' members, who must've been confused."

What do you think of the 'Running Man' producers' apology?

  1. Kim Jong Kook
