I hope Kwang Soo will return someday. His first love is acting so he'll always do dramas and movies so doing Running Man every week especially w/ a fractured ankle that hasn't completely healed results in more soreness and perhaps an even worse injury in the future (it happens to athletes a lot).

What he probably needed was to take a couple months break at least to allow his ankle to completely heal. idk what the degree of severity of his injury was but it's common for athletes to take a couple of months before playing again after a broken ankle surgery.

Kwang Soo has sacrificed a lot to do Running Man so it's only fair if he decided to focus on acting from now on. If he comes back, I'd be more that ecstatic but if he doesn't, I'd understand also.
