It’s been a long time since I felt the thrilling need to recap an episode of Running Man. I still watch them here and there because I like the cast and their interactions. But Episode 271 and 272 kicked the challenge up a notch for our team of tricksters and thinkers, requiring them not only to work together but tugging along 85 more guests to bring us three full hours of thrilling games, unmet challenges, and a whole lot of unexpected entertainment in every walk of life.
Warning: Lots of fangirling and upset emotions. I’m like 12 when my family is losing. XD
This episode was worth the wait. I watched without subtitle and found it entertaining and intense. A lot of guests are invited to challenge our Running Man team. I didn’t recognize the new idols, except for Kwang Hee so their names will be added later when the official list is out. Lol. I might write more to this post if I’m not too tired after work tomorrow. For now, enjoy the gifs and the real men moments. 😛
My, my, my. Have I been THAT out of the loop with K-ent? Five pretty boys are invited on Running Man and I only recognize two! Did you know all five or are we on the same boat? The things about pretty boys and pretty idols being on Running Man is that I get to cackle with glee when our Kim Jong Kook throws them around like stick figures. Stop preening in front of the cameras and hit the gym lads!
So tired! And I realized it’s only Monday! I’m covering for a co-worker for the next two weeks, totaling to about 120+ hours. Crazy! But income is income and this girl needs to pay off her school loans. So if you don’t see me in the next couple of days, I’m most likely hiding in some corner, trying to catch up with some sleep…. Back to the pretty people above. They actually used one event (the wedding) and spread it out to three episodes. Because I encode the videos, I notice that they have been splitting up each couple into multiple segments. Why? Well, they want to maintain the rating. They want viewers to stay throughout the hour instead of watching one couple and then changing channel. Such a nuisance when I cut the videos!
Wooohoo! Finally, a Running Man episode for me to spazz. This episode killed me. Not sure how many times I peed in my pants. It’s a testament to our Running Man’s charms that despite having 8 guests (!!) in one episode, they shine through and through, until the very end. Even if they become unrecognizable at some point. 😉
Is there a rule somewhere that the bigger the man, the softer he is? Or maybe it’s because of his crush? Yea. That’s the answer. After one year (really?!! A year really flashed by…), the big teddy bear joins Running Man again. They love him enough to do a 3-episode special, and this is the second part. Exo boys also have a cameo part in the nametag game. Exo’s fans, forgive me, as I no longer follow Kpop so their names escape me (Boy 1, Boy 2, it is. Seriously, 11 boys?!! Oh SM…) The nation’s first love also comes to visit, playing and laughing along with the PD’s matchmaking skills.
