Korean Variety Show Running Man Will Stay On Air; Not Cancelled as Previously Stated

Running Man - Lee Kwang Soo, Gary, Kim Jong Kook, Ha Ha, Song Ji Hyo 2

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.

    Oh I’m glad to here that! I thought it was all a bit messy how they ended it, but for everyone to stay on is a really good outcome. I haven’t watched any recent episodes, but I heard it had got a little stale, so hopefully they’re bringing back older formats and games and/or getting new ideas on the team. Thanks for sharing 🙂

      I’m really glad too! Especially after how everything went down, it’s a nice surprise to see it continuing with everyone. With the renewed interest in the show, I’m hoping they can use this as a time to freshen things up 🙂
