From the city of Seoul to the heart of Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur, the tall and comedic star who is affectionately known as the ‘Prince of Asia’, will be running to a mall near us tomorrow. The ‘Running Man Challenge’, which is organized by 100 Plus, will take place on 26 November 2016, 10am at Paradigm Mall.
Still the most-watched and best performing South Korean entertainment programme in Malaysia through pay-TV channel ONE HD, Running Man has become a television staple to viewers of all ages. Their popularity in Malaysia is evident, in 2014, over 4,000 ardent fans from all across Malaysia turned up at ONE HD’s ’Running Man Race Start Season 2 in Malaysia’ just to get a glimpse at five of the members including, Lee Kwang Soo, Song Ji Hyo, Ha Dong Hoon (HAHA), Kim Jong Kook and Ji Suk Jin.
Late last month, Gary, who is one half of the beloved Monday Couple, announced his departure from the series. The final episodes of Gary on Running Man have aired on ONE HD last week. Tonight, fans of the series are set for a brand new chapter with the remaining six members, as they continue to entertain us with their hilarious antics and wacky challenges.
Airing at 11pm on ONE HD tonight, the episode will feature guests from popular South Korean boyband Sechs Kies.
