In the latest episode of SBS’s ‘Running Man‘, actresess Go Ara, Im Soo Hyang, and T-ara‘s Hyomin were guests on the show.
The object of one of the games was to make a couple with the three popular actress or cast member Song Ji Hyo. To have a higher chance at ‘coupling up’ with his preferred lady, Haha, the show’s resident Casanova, blurted out, “Kwang Soo likes Lee Yeon Hee“.
MC Yoo Jae Suk then added, “Haha really likes IU..and Kim Jong Kook likes Yoon Eun Hye. He really likes Yoon Eun Hye”.
Upon hearing this a surprised Kim Jong Kook abruptly stood up and grabbed Yoo Jae Suk’s collar. Yoo Jae Suk cooly stated, “(But) it’s true, it’s true”.
Kim Jong Kook responded, “Your bringing up something from how long ago?”, bringing laughter to the cast. Yoo Jae Suk was referring to the Kim Jong Kook and Yoon Eun Hye couple in an old variety show, ‘X-Man‘.
Later when the cast members had to pick an item from a tray to determine their couple, Kim Jong Kook choose a hair tie and asked, “Who is the owner of this hair tie?”. The witty Yoo Jae Suk further teased, “Is Yoon Eun Hye here?..It’s possible”.
Yoo Jae Suk has developed a new nickname.
Similarly to last week’s episode, Ji Jin Hee, Lee Chun Hee, Joo Sang Hyuk, and Kim Sung Soo starred on this week’s episode of Running Man that aired on January 15th. This week’s objective was to win a bingo race.
With IU as a special guest, the teams could now split evenly into three groups. They arrived on the island and started the treasure hunt to look for pieces of paper with numbers written on them.
The island was so vast that finding the papers was like finding needles in a haystack. As the teams were out looking for the papers, Yoo Jae Suk’s team and Ji Jin Hee’s team bumped into one other.
Yoo Jae Suk sang and danced to Girl’s Generation’s ‘Gee’ at ‘Ji’ Jin Hee, jokingly making fun of his last name. Ji Jin Hee responded by saying, “How can we call him a mere grasshopper, when he is the nation’s grasshopper!”
After Ji Jin Hee’s response the other members also made fun of the “National Grasshopper” and instantaneously, Yoo Jae Suk new nickname was born.
Photos have emerged online, showing MC Yoo Jae Suk wearing a green checkered coat a la Sherlock Holmes. Netizens also managed to spot another cast member wearing the same coat, but in different colors.
A ‘Running Man’ PD explained, “Kim Jae Dong and Yoon Do Hyun were the guests for this special, and they completed their shoot on a Busan cruise ship. It was a special involving reasoning skills so we were worried [about the results], but the members and guests did well.”
The ‘Running Man – Sherlock Holmes special’ will air on January 29th.
Netizens are once again praising MC Yoo Jae Suk for his attentive manners.
The above photos surfaced on an online community board on January 9th with the title, ‘Yoo Jae Suk’s explosive manners. Lends Song Ji Hyo his hat.’
The photos are screen captures of the January 8th episode of SBS ‘Running Man‘. The hat that Yoo Jae Suk is wearing in the first shot is worn by Song Ji Hyo in the second.
The netizen who posted the photos praised the MC saying, “Looks like Yoo Jae Suk once again sacrificed his hat and gave it to Song Ji Hyo who was cold. He also proved that he was a gentleman when Girls’ Generation made a guest appearance on ‘Running Man’. Yoo Jae Suk took off his hat and gave it to Taeyeon then too.”
Netizens who saw the photos remarked, “Must be touched by MC Yoo’s manners“, “It’s like second nature to him“, and more.
