SBS responded to rumors about Kang Ho Dong joining 'Running Man'. 

Recently, 'Running Man' announced that the show will continue airing with the 6 members; Yoo Jae Suk, HaHa, Lee Kwang Soo, Ji Suk Jin, Song Ji Hyo, and Kim Jong Kook. Then today, one media outlet reported that Kang Ho Dong, who was originally in talks to join after Song Ji Hyo and Kim Joong Kook's departure from the show, was once again given an offer, this time as the 7th member.

However, Nam Seung Yong, the head of SBS's variety show department, denied the reports, and stated, "It's absolutely not true." As a result, 'Running Man' is expected to continue airing with no additional members.

Why add him instead of adding another girl member like #Yooneunhye it could be great for Running Man and Kim Jong Kook #newmondaycouple

Talk Gary into coming back.  There is something so special about Gary!

Even though he's very special in many people's hearts including mine. Talking Gary back into running man is like locking a bird in a cage after you se the it free. He wasn't happy with running man after so many years. And left to continue his dream. He kept wondering about leaving and staying many times and was blessed by yjs to leave the show. So with love we should let him stay off of the show.

I'm glad the show is continuing with the same cast. KJK and SJH have the biggest hearts for forgiving what the PDs did to them. It's better to have no additional members for a while. Gary's departure was so recent and then this controversy... it'll be too hard on the viewers to happily accept anyone new. But if they were to add a member later, I think CNBlue's YongHwa or 2PM's Nickhun would be good candidates (they've been guests so often back in the older episodes that they seem to have better relationships with all cast members). They can test the waters and have Kang Ho Dong as guest...(?)

What a stupid lie lol KHD already declined the offer from the show and that's it. This man knows what's right what's wrong and just because SBS got hit hard from fans all over the world and learnt a lesson bringing back the show, doesn't mean he will change his mind and use the opportunity to join. He's  not that kind of person, he's a great MC and a good person who has his own priorities, so he knows what her can do and what he can't. That's why every show with him is good.

Not true, koreaboo's interview included comments from the PDs and they said that they would continue looking for someone to fill Gary's space, though it was not clear when or who.

omg I reaaaally hope he doesn't join, I just can't see him as part of the members of running man!

RM needs to add at least two people and have better episodes. Change the PD and writers
