Episode 208 restored my love for Running Man. I watched it without any subtitles, and I still loved every single minute of it. It's been so long since I've genuinely enjoyed an entire episode. Running Man has lost its charm for a long while now... But I think RM is on its way to redemption! Episode 209 looks promising. I pray that they keep this up, so that I fall in love with RM all over again ~~

aww that’s awsome to hear! yay for quality episodes!!

Are Yoo Jae Suk and Kim Jong Kook called eternal rivals?

In the beginning YJS and KJK were called “eternal rivals” because they were both aces in their own kind of way. KJK was sparta, the muscular monster of a guy who could take on 8 people at once. He was universally feared in every game of bells hide and seek. 

YJS was the brainier and sneakier ace. He wasn’t as physically strong but he played mind games and didn’t mind using some trickery to snag the victory. It made sense to pit brains vs. brawn.

I think as the show has developed though, each cast member has found their own place and the eternal rival thing has died down a bit mainly because there’s no need to have them be the big players anymore. If there’s one thing RM is good at, it’s playing to the strengths of each individual.

What you will notice though is that KJK and YJS are hardly ever on the same team (unless it’s a RM vs. others type game) because they’d likely become so powerful that they’d win everything. It’s a pairing you don’t see often but whenever it does show up, it’s certainly worth the wait ;)

Hi! This has nothing to do with RM but I'm just being curious are all the administrators Koreans and live in Korea? Love you guys, thank you for answering our questions about RM and etc... :)

Not all of us are Korean and I believe none of us live in Korea

Done with theme editing! Aside from the new links for the admin blogs (to be filled soon) and the additional-not-entirely-essential-but-hopefully-helpful links to the navigation, the blog’s ready to run as a visitable webpage again.

What do you think?

hi do you mind briefly "story-tell" ep 176? like a really brief one will do thank you! :)

They have 5 male guests today and the whole point of today’s episode is that the men are able to correctly guess their own placing in how attractive they are to women. Jihyo’s role today is as an MC and she doesn’t participate in any of the missions. 

1st Mission: The boys have to stand on acupuncture mats and play a game where a crew member holds up a number (let’s say 5) so the total number of legs on the mat has to equal 5. So maybe each of them lifts up a leg and together lift another guy up. 

When they succeed at missions, they get clues as to the rank of the men. Ex. Jong Kook is one lower than Guest B

Next they play a quiz game and instead of microphones that blast air, they have hairdryers that blast air. 

For the third mission they head off to a college campus where each member is separated and told to find a girl with a unique last name. 

Finally they head back to decide their final ranks and face a huge barrel of water being dumped on all of them if they’re wrong.

Also, if you want episode recaps, dramabeans.com has recaps for most of the RM episodes (including recent ones)!

Ehem Ehem.

Hi guys! Marie here, one of the new admins. First things first! I will be changing RME’s blog theme, so if any of you do visit the page, please bear with any weird formats, misplaced texts, etc. It shouldn’t hinder any posts on your dash or asking/answering functions though. I’ll try to be as fast as I can, and will post an update when I’m done, just so if any of you find anything odd after, we can address it.

Also, the admin’s favorite episodes list will be posted later! I personally apologize for the delay, other admins have already given their lists weeks ago, and I just failed to compile them earlier.

Thanks for understanding!

Hi, I love your blog! How do you remember all these episodes?? LOL, can you list all the song-song siblings/monday couple love triangle episodes?

thanks so much anon! oh believe me, we don’t memorize all the episodes. there’s a lot of research and backtracking and fact checking and internet searching involved but at the end of the day, it all works out :)

Episode 18 was the major one. Other than that I think there was also Episodes 15, 25, 28, and 29

Can the RM PDs speak english?

I don’t think they know much english, if they do then it’s probably basic. we don’t get to hear the PD’s talk much because they’re mostly behind the scenes.

Why aren't you answering my questions?

ah I’m sorry :( I promise we are not intentionally ignoring any questions. Some of them just take a little longer to get to (a lot of the “favorite episode” questions take weeks to put together). If you shoot us another message in our inbox and remind us of your question, I’ll try to answer it now.

we get a lot of questions every day and sometimes they do pile up so don’t be afraid to send another reminder just to let us know what your question was. please be patient with us!
