On Running Man’s 223rd episode, aired on December 1st, the main cast transformed into newly hired company workers, all eager for a promotion. Many guest stars appeared, including Choi Hyun Ho, Fabien Yoon, Busker Busker’s Brad Moore, Jake Pains, Mark Taylor, Chris Jones, John Rosenthal, and Craig Priester. Here’s our TOP 10 moments of the latest episode! Warning: Spoilers Ahead.
1. Suk Jin’s and Kwang Soo’s jumping like animals in the Savannah
Both members had a similar “leaping” motion as they jumped over the cleaning women’s mops.
Guess the impala and giraffe were meant to be friends in the wild…
2. Jae-Kwang-Ha’s sabotage against Jong Kook
The three make quite a team!
Hearing Jong Kook is the next, Jae Suk, Kwang Soo, and HaHa all tried to slow him down on his subway obstacle course. Whether it’s preventing him from moving by hugging him at the stairs, to rolling trash cans at him, these three really go all out to trying to stop the Commander.
3. Choi Hyun Ho’s “Subtle” Messages
Hearing Choi Hyun Ho casually say that the third prize was nice, all of the members immediately started to plot on how to get it for him. It was hilarious to see how compliant the Running Man members were towards their director.
4. Woodpecker Jihyo
Only thinking about beating the director, Ji Hyo immediately tried to do as many sit-ups as she can. With the rate she went at though, a fellow member commented how she looked like a woodpecker ㅋㅋ
5. Haha’s Flailing Sit-ups
Speaking about sit-ups…
HaHa managed to start flail around like a fish out of water while performing his sit-ups. Poor Haroro was too excited to beat the director’s record.
6. Rampaging Jae Suk and Jong Kook
Jae Suk and Jong Kook began rampaging as they each used their chance to hit the bottles with the handball and were missing their mark…
Funny how two seemingly opposite people have such similar characteristics…
7. John’s Fall
Hearing team member being ousted + Sneaky VJ = John’s flailing fall
8. Blocks…of Gold?!
Perhaps fans became a bit too excited when they heard Jae Suk announce that the winning side will receive gold bars as prizes. However, Jae Suk casually threw out there that only the small round “R” symbol in the block was actual gold.
9. Monday Couple’s Power on Fans
As Ji Hyo whispered to Gary, many Monday-Couple fans started to cheer for their OTP’s cuteness. When Jae Suk asked Gary what Jihyo said, the lover boy said “She said ‘I love you,’” which was rewarded by the fans’ screams in approval and Ji Hyo’s laughter.
10. The Betrayers are Back!
Kwang Soo and HaHa, each making a pact to use scissors during the game, both threw out rock instead.
Typical betrayers ㅋㅋ
