1 night 2 days never tolerate cheating even if the game is absurd but a win is a win and lose is lose. that is the moral of the show. i dont like RM, it was like cheating is normal and tolerated.IC is too random i think. sometimes its incredibly good, sometimes its bleh...the consistent one is 1N2D, its either good or very good.

If i were to compare the 3 Main shows 1D2N, RM, and IC from the 3 stations, I think RM is used often as a "promotional engine" for SBS, everytime SBS has a new drama upcoming, the actor/actress appear on RM. like to promote their movie, and also often idol singers appear on RM, to promote their new songs. However 1D2N and IC, do not really invite guests to promote songs or drama. once in a while 1D2N do have guests like invite a friend, but thats different from coming to the show with an ulterior motive of promoting your own song or drama. Thats why 1D2N fans and IC fans perfer it without guests as they like the show's chemistry between the cast members as it is. However the problem with RM is that the cast members rarely are seem working together as one team, sometimes it happen when 7 guests come and they go against RM team, but most of the time, RM cast go against each other, betraying, lying and doing all sorts of things to win. While 1D2N cast often compete with the PD in games, and try to co-operate with each other to win in games. The feeling is the 2 shows is different, some encourages co-operation and the "Together we are stronger" ideal, while RM is "I am on my own" or "I am better alone" ideal. The recent "Together or Alone" theme is a good example, showing most of the time, the members prefer to "make it funny" through betrayal or self-fish ideals instead of the "We will be united regardless of the results, we will all win together or all get punished together", The RM "Train to Prison" also have the members decide if they will go home alone or stay and help, while Gary and KJK did chose to stay, the other members like Kwang Soo and Suk Jin, eventually will break the teamwork and choose to think for themselves. Same when they are ask if they want to share the "Gold" or keep all to one person, they are never "unified" in deciding to work together. its like self-fishness and betrayal has become a concept assoicated with Running Man.

well.. from the beginning RM is made to be different than IC and 1N2D... RM genre is most-likely action variety show... while the others are more like a talk show with some games... compare the members relationship can't be based on that.... it maybe not appear on the show but I believe the relationship between RM members are as close as IC and 1N2D members.... the betrayal part is already part of the show from early episodes as well.... each of the member have their own characteristic and LKS, JSJ, Haha is known as betrayal trio... they betray during games doesn't make them a betrayal in real life too... as far as i know RM members often spent their time together outside of filming... so i assume they have a good friendship...

I am still remember back when a school kid was asked what sounds varies animals make or relate to, like Cat is Meow Meow, Dog is Bark Bark, when it comes to Giraffee, the kid said "Betray". I think as family variety shows, where you gather and watch with kids, the kind of ideals the show passes is also important. Of cos in games, we see some times people cheat or such to make it funny, but we should show that cheaters get punished and that playing fair is the right thing to do, but in some cases, RM, when Kwang Soo cheats, the PD dun stop it, and it gets blown up, when other cast also cheats and the whole game becomes a matter of who cheats more. just feel that its something the writers can reflect on.

Hyungshi Monday, January 2, 2017

still hard to digest the fact Running Man is ending... won't be the same seeing him in another variety without the rest of the members.

yys_khc Monday, January 2, 2017

I am not hating on kim jongguk, he is funny and entertaining. But why does 1N2d keep inviting guest? The show doesn't feel the same anymore. I miss the old show 😢😢

Winston yys_khc Monday, January 2, 2017

The show needs a new perk now and then, the same old "Play a Game for Lunch" and "Play a game to determine who sleeps indoor and outdoors" and "Winter Camp" and etc is just getting repeated over and over. I cant count how many times the members drink stuff like Fish sauce or soysauce in coke, break raw or cooked eggs on their head, or eat wasabit or spicy chili as games. its the same things over and over and over. Till one day, it just stops being funny.

MissBBLover Winston Monday, January 2, 2017

That's not true the show was doing the best last 9 years also Korean fans I hate guest pd said he will stop invite guest also the reason rm become boring was they stop doing name tag so as fan who watch since season 1 I like to watch only members doing old 2D1N thing

kizaru_hijin yys_khc Monday, January 2, 2017

theres nothing wrong with guests, as long as the core of the show remains the same. guests will bring some new air to it but thats it. as long as 1n2d remains 1n2d it doesnt matter...unlike running man, where the idiot pd ruined everything and changed running man completely.

_Jarhon yys_khc Monday, January 2, 2017

So that it doesnt suffer Running Man's fate? The fact that 1n2d has kept changing format and members have allowed it to continue and grow. While the family feel of running man is nice, it also ment it was doomed to end eventually. When they finally did try to do a change, the diehard fans killed it and now we'll have nothing.

_Jarhon yys_khc Monday, January 2, 2017

oh, and guests and the core of all variety shows, that's why they exist. i dont even know how you've misunderstood that somehow or... just .. I dont know. popular variety shows=popular guests.

_Jarhon Monday, January 2, 2017

guests are* the core.. (akp, editing? still?)

kizaru_hijin _Jarhon Monday, January 2, 2017

a stupid delulu trying to explain variety shows, while proving that you dont even know anything about... care to explain when 1n2d ever changed its format?since season 1, since the first episode 1n2d was always about traveling around the country and doing games for their food and sleeping places...are they doing something else now?tell me when did they ever change their format? and they have season 3 now, they had different members alone in season 1, then others came with season 2 and for season 3 except 2 everyone was new and how did it affect their success?they are still the best show there, proving my point. the ppl start watching the shows for its content and only later they fall in love with the members and start becoming their fans, but if they leave, the fans will still watch it, but if they completely change everything that made the show famous in the first place, like this idiot pd in running man, then everything will fall apart...even i predicted this over a year ago, when i saw this stupid pd in running man, that the show will end if this idiot remains there.

yys_khc kizaru_hijin Wednesday, January 4, 2017

They use to interact more with the citizens or visiting meaningful place which I got to learn a lot about korea from this show. It's so different when they have guest with them! Thats why I am not really pleasant when they have. Also they need to stop using CTH connection it's kinda boring, and start working on more ideas.

kizaru_hijin yys_khc Wednesday, January 4, 2017

they have guests sometimes to slightly change the atmosphere, if its only the members, its one thing, but if there is a guest then the whole episode will seem newer, depending on the guest of course. and i dont think its so different with a guest, they just happen not to travel to a place with many ppl, where they can interact much with other ppl.

kizaru_hijin yys_khc Wednesday, January 4, 2017

besides, its a pretty new pd now, so give him time...

Aigoolilac yys_khc Wednesday, January 4, 2017

I also prefer it without celebrity guest but it's ok as long as only once in while and the guest suits the trip theme. That's this show is always be like as far as I'm concerned and i hope they will stick to their basic format

Aigoolilac _Jarhon Wednesday, January 4, 2017

I don't know for other show but guest is not the case for 1n2d. Its ep rating is always the highest regardless the guest. Its their basic format that makes this show keep alive for this 9 years and if you track back, they only invited celebrity guest once in a while and usually its related to their trip theme

Winston Monday, January 2, 2017

RM members have never guested on IC or 1D2N, because of the show's rivalry between the 3 stations (except for YJS and Haha, whom are both on IC and RM).seems like things can change now. YJS was advised to spend more time with his wife also, so with RM ending in Feb 2017, he might have more time to go on the vacation with his wife as he always wanted and have his 2nd child.

supa Winston Monday, January 2, 2017

Kim Jong Kook has been on IC before as Turbo.

xxhuntressxx Winston Monday, January 2, 2017

RM and 1N2D members can appear as guest on IC coz they have different timeslots, but members of 1N2D and RM can never be guest on each other shows because they are on the same day and the same time slot, that's why 1N2D made a name tag ripping game for the Kim Jong Min special coz he has never been a guest on RM.

cirrosis Winston Monday, January 2, 2017

Uhh Kim Jong Kook, Ji Suk Jin and Gary have all appeared on IC before.

tyneexxx Winston Monday, January 2, 2017

IC air on Saturday not on Sunday.. while 1N2D and RM air on SUnday..

kizaru_hijin Winston Monday, January 2, 2017

he will just start a new show, thats not how it works in south korea, they want to work, even when jaesuk doesnt need anymore, he wont just sit around and start enjoying his life. yes, maybe a vacation with his family will happen but thats it. and mostly the celebrities arent bound on one company, they could appear on any show they wanted, there are only a few celebrities bound on companies. their rivalry is only for the ratings etc, its not as if the companies are at war and hate each other.

Nupsty Winston Monday, January 2, 2017

Kang Gary appeared on IC before when Gil is still around. So did Ji Suk Jin.. only SJH & LKS did not get invited.

saraalj Monday, January 2, 2017

yaaassss, he can guest on the show then maybe after Running man finishes he can join 1 night 2 days even though I highly doubt it after the way Running man is coming to a finish but I will keep my hopes up ^-^

qnaug Monday, January 2, 2017

i cant wait to see KJK with CTH together lol they gonna be hilarious

9001reasons Monday, January 2, 2017

I'm sure YJS/KJK/Daesung could make a new show together. Big bang is on hiatus thanks to TOP, so it's a great time to get the family outing crew back together. Kwang Soo can fill in for Chun Hee. Iirc, Hyori wanted to come back to tv. Family outing has a very similar concept to 1n2d, so it's an easy way to get ratings again.

Winston 9001reasons Monday, January 2, 2017

its never a good idea to repeat old shows, just as how dramas like DOTS, Goblin, Signal have to come up with new story line to attract viewers, variety shows needs writers to come up with fresh themes or concepts that will be the next hit. Just as how there were variety shows that focused on sports (Cool Kidz, Dream Team), and then variety shows focus on kids (Superman, Daddy where are you going), shows on food, (Tasty Road, etc), Shows on Travel etc, variety shows on mystery and problem solving, (Genius, Crime Scene). Shows on Safety (Safety FIrst), Shows on healthy lifestyle (Vitamin) , variety shows on music etc. Writers need to think of new themes or concepts.
