Ha. You know HunanTV doesn’t like to lose to anyone, be it dramas or variety shows. Their response to Zhejiang’s Run Brothers is to have their own adapted variety show called Run For Time airing at the same time on Fridays. It’s based on a Japanese show called Run For Money, consisting of various survival games each episode that all participants (in this case called the runaways) need to pass. If they don’t complete the tasks within a time limit, they are captured but a group of hunters (men in black). It’s a star-studded variety show guys and I mean it! Hunan has the current favorite stars under the sun participating in every round. Take a look after the jump to see if your favorites are invited!
After listening to the theme song, it’s indeed very, very cute. I’m not sure how many kids/dads participated in the recording so I put down all five, which should be correct. If you’re looking for the full theme song, you’re in the right place as it was dropped 2 days ago. I watched titbits of episode 3 and Angela cracked me up when she tried to climb the sand hill. Seems like her dad needs to learn the ways of his daughter. Isn’t the cookie cutter resemblance between the kids and the dads amazing? I look nothing like my parents. So… *whistles*
