Running Man was originally classified as an "urban action variety"; a genre of variety shows in an urban environment.[3] The MCs and guests were to complete missions at a landmark to win the race.[4] The show has since shifted to a more familiar reality-variety show concept focused on games.[citation needed] It has garnered attention as being the comeback program for Yoo Jae-suk, the main MC of the program, after leaving Good Sunday's Family Outing in February 2010.[5]

The show has become popular in other parts of Asia, and has gained online popularity among Hallyu fans, having been fansubbed into various languages, such as English, Persian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Malay, Indonesian, Burmese, Arabic, Russian, and Turkish.[6][7] The show has made it to the list of Business Insider's 20 TV Shows of 2016.[8]

Since April 2017, Running Man is airing as the first part of Good Sunday at 4:50 pm KST and competing against KBS2's The Return of Superman and MBC's King of Mask Singer.[9] Running Man previously aired at 6:25 pm KST on Sundays, as the second part of Good Sunday, competing against KBS2's 2 Days & 1 Night. The show celebrated its 11th anniversary on July 11, 2021, with 563 episodes, surpassing MBC's Infinite Challenge for the longest entertainment program in South Korea.[10]

Format edit

Current edit

As of episode 48, the members have taken part in a series of missions to become the winner(s) at the end of the race. Missions form the basis of Running Man as members try to avoid punishment in earlier episodes or to win prizes. Multiple missions are presented in each episode, with the highlight of Running Man being race missions. The format of the show has veered away from the "race mission + others" to "one continuous race + missions".

Ep(s) Airdate(s) Notes
1 July 11, 2010 The MCs and guests were locked in a landmark during closed hours and were required to leave before opening hours. In the first episode, they were divided into two teams and raced to find the codes hidden within the landmark that were required to unlock the main doors.[11]

With a total of 5 numbers, after one was found, a game was played to determine which team would start first in the next race, and the losing team received a punishment while the other team was given a head start. After all the numbers had been found by either of the teams, they approached the main door and entered the code which they believed was correct. The exact team was allowed to leave the landmark while the losing team was required to complete a punishment inside the landmark.[12]

2–5 July 18, 2010 – August 8, 2010 The second episode to the fifth episode, both teams competed to find golden pigs filled with money that was hidden within the landmark and participated in games in the attempt to win more money. At the end of each episode, the team with the most money was declared the winner and was allowed to leave the landmark while the losing team received a punishment. The money collected by the teams was donated in the winning team's honor. Viewers could vote on the official Running Man homepage on who they believed would be the winning team, and a lucky audience who guessed correctly was allowed to have his/her name included in the donation.[13]
6–10 August 15, 2010 – September 12, 2010 Episodes 6 to 10, a consistent game format was used where both teams competed to obtain the most Running Man Balls (shortened to Running Balls in future episodes). Running Balls were awarded to the team that found a ball, and were also given to individuals who won a game, who received a Running Ball of their team's color (blue or red).[14] Each of the games and races was referred to as missions, and were as follows:
  • Mission 1 featured games related to the landmark. Previously, the Photo Zone Game was played at every landmark.
  • Mission 2 was the race mission.
  • Mission 3 was Leisure Time for a Cup of Tea. This mission was discontinued after episode ten due to controversies.[15]
  • Mission 4 was Morning Team Sports. This mission aired in full only in episode six and only highlights were shown in episode seven due to time constraints.

At the end of each episode, the Running Man Balls collected throughout the night were placed into a lottery machine, and the color of the first ball ejected determined the winning team for the evening. The losing team was required to commute home using public transportation while undertaking an embarrassing punishment.

11–25 September 19, 2010 – January 9, 2011 As of the eleventh episode, the Running Man members and guests were no longer split into two main teams except for during the race mission, with smaller teams or individual game-play being used during the other missions. Everyone individually earned Running Balls throughout the missions and the balls selected during the lottery machine segment represented the individuals who were the winners for the night. The format of missions was also changed:
  • Mission 1 was Challenge 1 vs. X.
  • Mission 2 was Find the Thief. From episode 15 this was changed to different games related to the landmark.
  • Mission 3 was the race mission, Bells Hide and Seek.

As of the eighteenth episode, only those who had earned no Running Balls at all throughout the night were the ones to be punished.

26–43 January 16, 2011 – May 15, 2011 Beginning with the twenty-sixth episode, the race mission, Bells Hide and Seek, was replaced with a Find the Guests mission. The MCs and guests were locked inside a landmark and were required to earn Running Balls for a chance to escape punishment. Through a series of missions, the Running Man members were divided into teams and/or individually earned Running Balls. The format for the missions in episodes 26 to 43 were:
  • Mission 1 was the race mission, Find the Guests. From episodes 39 to 41, it was Catch the Running Man.
  • Mission 2 featured games related to the landmark.
  • Mission 3 was the One Chance challenge, which was played in episodes 27 to 31.

If there were many members with no Running Balls, they were automatically punished and no lottery was conducted. Additionally, if the members succeeded in the One Chance mission, they were all relieved of the punishment regardless of how many Running Balls each of them possessed. As of episode 38 and onwards, there were some episodes which included spy/spies. These spies could either be part of the cast, guest, or both.

44–47 May 22, 2011 – June 12, 2011 From episodes 44 to 47, staff (of the landmark location involved in the game) voted for who they believed would be the overall winner of the games and became supporters of that member/team. Teams were decided by the winner of the race mission, who received the first Running Ball, and the two teams then competed for more Running Balls throughout missions spread over two days (two episodes). The format for the missions was as follows:
  • Mission 1 was the race mission, Find the Guests.
  • Mission 2 featured missions related to the staff of the landmark.
  • Mission 3 was a second race mission.
  • Mission 4 featured missions related to the landmark.

The team with the most Running Balls was declared the winner and their supporters received a bonus from their boss.

119, 131, 144 November 11, 2012; February 3, 2013; May 5, 2013 In these episodes, the members would arrive at the starting venue separately. An announcer would announce that "The XX Running Man is entering the arena". This announcement would include the guests for the day. After all the guest were introduced, the announcer would immediately announce their first mission. The race would officially begin after the first mission ends. The winner of the first mission would be given an advantage to his/her team in the race. The format for the missions are as follows:
  • Mission 1 was the opening mission: Name Tag Elimination
  • Mission 2 onwards would follow the usual format of the show: one long race with continuous missions during the race.

However, she left show from episode 26 due to schedule conflicts with her group activities.

Chief producer, Nam Seung-yong, is responsible for the production of the program, with PD Jo Hyo-jin, Im Hyung-taek, and Kim Joo-hyung (also known as Myeok PD)[27] mainly responsible for the directing and production of the recordings of the program since inception. Other PDs have joined the program to assist as the program shifts from a single landmark to multiple locations for recording, notably Hwang Seon-man, Jeong Cheol-min, and Lee Hwan-jin. FD Go Dong-wan assists in the recordings of the program and is known to be shown on camera many times, as well as delivering and assisting the members in missions. Producer Kim Joo-hyung has left the show as of episode 182 as he was reassigned to Inkigayo.[28]

Notable cameramen include Ryu Kwon-ryeol (Yoo Jae-suk's primary VJ), Kim Yoo-seok (Jee Seok-jin's primary VJ), Choi Yoon-sang (former primary VJ for Lee Kwang-soo), Yoon Sung-yong (Haha's primary VJ), Sung Gyu (Song Ji-hyo's primary VJ), Jo Seong-Oh (Gary's primary VJ, now Yang Se-chan's primary VJ), Kim Ki-jin (Kim Jong-kook's primary VJ), and Ji Bong-jo (Jeon So-min's primary VJ).

On November 19, 2014, the show's head director, Jo Hyo-jin, announced his departure from the show after working with the members for four years.[29] On March 20, 2016, the show's main PD, Im Hyung-taek left the show (as of episode 291) as he became the producer of Hurry Up, Brother, resulting in new generation PDs to take over, notably PD Lee Hwan-jin, PD Jeong Cheol-min, and PD Park Yong-woo.[30] FD Go Dong-wan also announced his leave via his Instagram.[31]

On July 3, 2016, SBS confirmed the return of producer Kim Joo-hyung to the show.[32] That same month, it is confirmed that he will be the new main PD of the show.[33] However, it didn't last long as PD Kim Joo-hyung announced that he is leaving the show shortly after. Subsequently, PD Lee Hwan-jin took over as the main PD of Running Man until March 2017. In April 2017, PD Jeong Cheol-min took over from PD Lee Hwan-Jin as the Running Man main PD.[23]

In July 2018, PD Jeong Cheol-min took a break and PD Lee Hwan-jin temporarily took over as main PD of the show.[34] PD Jeong returned in May 2019 replacing PD Lee,[citation needed] leading the show till February 5, 2020, where he left the show and SBS. His role was taken over by PD Choi Bo-pil.[35]

On August 1, 2022, SBS announced that PD Choi Bo-pil would be leaving the show, with PD Choi Hyung-in taking over the role, making her the first female production director in the show's history.[36]

Reception edit

The first episode of the show received mixed reviews. According to Asiae, the show concept was promising, but the crew could not use the location to full potential, and the pace was not fast and dynamic enough.[38]

Despite a slow start, Running Man became increasingly popular in South Korea and throughout Asia.[39][40][41][42][43] In its home country the show is watched by 2.1 million people on average.[44] Due to the existence of fansubs, it is watched outside of Asia as well, being translated into English, Spanish and Arabic, among others.[45]

According to The Straits Times (an English language daily newspaper in Singapore), the popularity of the show is due to its unpredictability, the comedy involved, the celebrity guests and the chemistry between the regular cast members.[46] Assistant professor Liew Kai Khiun at the Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) attributes the appeal of Running Man to the ability of using public space in a creative way: "Running Man is about taking audiences to the various corners of not only South Korea, but the region as well. In the rather fast-paced urban societies in Asia, the show helps to provide release from the daily tensions that such streets and buildings are associated with."[46] Liew thinks that the cast members are not particularly good looking, thus have nothing to lose, even if they "wrestle with one another like children".[46]

According to producer Jo Hyo-jin, the show is popular because the concept of having to choose a winner is culturally easy to understand. He also named the good relationship between the regular members as one of the reasons for the show's success.[47] Celebrity guests like Super Junior, Girls' Generation and f(x) play an important part in the success as well, although they sometimes induce criticism. For example, after the airing of the Big Bang episodes, some viewers complained that the band won too easily. Jo Hyo-jin, however, denied any special treatment of the celebrities. Jo explained that fans are also highly critical of the games, therefore it is not possible for the crew to reuse games without changing them.[47]

The regular members of Running Man have held several fan meetings throughout Asia. In October 2013, their Singapore fan meeting drew a crowd of 3,000.[48] When the cast arrived for shooting in Vietnam and other countries, they were greeted by thousands of fans at the airport.[49]

Discography edit

In conjunction with the 9th year of show, the show held their first ever fan-meeting in South Korea. During the fan-meeting, they collaborate with the different singers. On September 22, 2019, the extended play titled Running Man Fan Meeting: Project Running 9 was released.[50]

Animation edit

The Soul Tree, the great source of our race. But for its ultimate power and by those whose minds were blinded by it, it also became the catastrophic cause that had brought never-ending wars between the tribes. Tortured by the agonies of the wars, the leaders of the tribes finally came to a peace agreement that they would instead open a competition. Players, equipped with special watches and shields, compete against each other as winner’s tribe would be awarded with Materion, the sacred fruit of the Soul Tree. These brave players, who throw themselves in this fierce fight, we call them the Running Man.

Controversy edit

Gary's departure edit

In September 2012, Gary made a surprising announcement on social media about his intention to leave the program. It is believed that his intention came from the recent criticism concerning the "Super 7 Concert" which his company, Leessang Company, was producing. Gary decided to take responsibility for its failure by resigning himself from any activities. Due to this, Running Man production staff and the members decided to postpone their filming schedule on September 24–25, 2012 to convince him to stay in the program.[72][73][unreliable source?] A week later, Gary officially apologized for the controversy he created and confirmed his decision to remain as a member of the program.[74] In 2016, Gary again announced his departure from Running Man to focus on his music. However, in 2018 Gary went on Naver TV for an interview and honestly said the reason he wanted to leave the program was that he had nothing left to offer compared to other members or upcoming members(Kim,2018).[citation needed] This caused Running Man to have a 6-member cast for a few months before casting two new members, Yang Se Chan and Jeon So Min.[citation needed] Gary returned on episode 336 as a surprise guest.[75]

Season 2 proposal edit

On December 14, 2016, it was announced that Kim Jong-kook and Song Ji-hyo were leaving the show, as a new season with a new format starring the remaining cast members and new member Kang Ho-dong would air in January 2017.[76][77][78] Initial reception was mixed. However, it was revealed that Kim Jong-kook and Song Ji-hyo were not given any notice about their removal, resulting in an overwhelming negative reaction.[79][80] In addition, news of Kang refusing the offer to join the new season resulted in a possible cancellation of Season 2 of Running Man.[81]

On December 16, 2016, an emergency meeting was held with the consensus reached that all members would leave, ending the program altogether in February 2017[82][83][84] with a subsequent program taking its place.[85]

However, on January 24, 2017, SBS announced that the show will continue airing with all of the remaining cast members. The decision came after Nam Seung-yong, the new Vice President of SBS Entertainment Headquarters, who was involved in conceiving Running Man, had further conversations with every member in regards to the show's future.[86][87] Subsequently, after apologizing to Kim Jong-kook and Song Ji-hyo for all of the issues regarding the program, the former then became actively involved in convincing the other members to continue working on the program.[88]

Webtoon plagiarism edit

On April 28, 2019, Running Man was criticized for plagiarizing Naver webtoon Money Game. The aired episode showed cast members put into a studio and given money to spend as a group. The fans of Money Game pointed out the similarities between the episode concept and the webtoon's storyline. Money Game writer Bae Jin-soo and Naver Webtoon, the platform in which the webtoon is published, both stated that they never received prior notification or requests for consent to be able to adopt the webtoon's storyline into a Running Man episode. In response, producers of the show issued an apology to both parties.[citation needed]

Depiction of Taiwan edit

During an episode aired on December 7, 2020, the show depicted China and Taiwan as separate countries when playing a board game, which caused outrage and call for boycotts in China.[89][90]

Injury edit

It was revealed than the cast had suffered various injuries such as herniated discs as a result of the physically challenging games in the show.[91][92]
