During an interview with China's Sina News, Gary revealed that 'Running Man' was the best memory and challenge of his life.
He explained, "'Running Man' was my first variety show. After leaving 'Running Man', a lot of concerns ran through my mind. I was worried that people will perceive me negatively. However, I'm thankful that many waited for my music and gave me encouragement. I'll work hard to make music so I can communicate (with my fans)."
Gary officially left 'Running Man' back in November after 7 years on the show.
