Running Man hosts first online TikTok fan meeting on September 5
Don’t walk, Run! TikTok brings exclusive online fan meeting for Running Man fans across the globe
South Korea’s most popular variety TV Show, “Running Man”, will hold an online fan meeting via TikTok on 5 September, 6PM (MYT). 6 of 7 Fixed Running Man Members, Haha, Ji Sukjin, Kim Jongkook, Song Jihyo, Jeon Somin, and Yang Sechan will be on the show.
SBS variety show, “Running Man”, has gained massive popularity worldwide since its first broadcast in 2010. Since 2013, Running Man members have been visiting their fans overseas and presenting various performances.
Running Man’s overseas fan meetings and performances have been popular in many regions like China and Southeast Asia, including their last fanmeeting on Malaysia shores in 2017 where they wowed over 6,000 fans.
Previously, the Vietnam stop of this fan meeting was successfully held in Ho Chi Minh in December 2019. The Manila fan meeting which was scheduled to be held in February 2020 was delayed due to the outbreak of COVID-19. However, the Manila fan meeting is still recognised as one of the best performing Korean shows in the country, where the planned show was sold out within one hour of tickets on sale.
The “Running Man 2021 Online Fan Meeting” will be planned and produced by NP C&C, a subsidiary of NPInc., a brand experience content solution company, and will be held at NP XR STAGE. The fan meeting will be broadcast live on the global short-form mobile video platform, TikTok.
Jay Bae, Head of Global Business Development at TikTok Korea said, “TikTok’s paid live feature was first introduced in May and we have received positive feedback as well as meaningful results afterwards, including Lotte Duty Free Online Family Concert, Beautiful Mint Life 2021, and the FOREST 21 Epik High Concert. TikTok will continue to make efforts to provide better customer experiences to domestic and foreign users.”
Fans who are interested in attending the “Running Man 2021 Online Fan Meeting” can get tickets through Global Interpark starting 12PM (MYT) on 16 July. The show will be broadcast live to global audiences in six different languages for subtitle options: Korean, English, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and Indonesian at 6PM (MYT) on 5 September.
