Well, this is a surprise! The popular Korean variety show Running Man will not be ending as previously stated. It’s staying on air! It was previously announced that the show would be concluding its run in February.
This came about last month after a messy attempt to revitalize the show in which cast members Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo were let go with little communication from production until it had already happened. The team decided to end the show after the resulting fallout over the matter.
But a recent statement from SBS indicated the show would be continuing due to so much disappointment from fans over the cancellation. All six current cast members have agreed to stay on.
I certainly didn’t expect this. I was disappointed with how things went prior to the cancellation announcement, but was glad to see the cast would all be ending the show together. But I must say I am happier that the show will be continuing as I have such affection for all of the cast as a group. Hopefully, they can work towards revitalizing the show to make it an even better experience for the cast and the fans.
