Star News - Naver: Running Man's 5th anniversary, Viewers pick their 3 best guests

1. [+12,361, -90] Is this article supposed to be about the episodes with best ratings and not about the best guests chosen by viewers?

2. [+7,752, -225] So many guests.... But how come I don't remember any?.. The nametag-ripping + bells race era was jjang.. Now it has become Promotion Man/Guest Man/Game Man

3. [+6,641, -173] More fun when they don't invite guests

4. [+5,574, -300] Choi Min Soo???ㅋㅋ

5. [+4,909, -64] RM was the best when they used to have the nametag ripping

6. [+338, -27] Min Soo hyungnim. Gave me chills when he said "I came to catch a grasshopper"....

7. [+298, -17] The Avengers special when they had to cross the building blinfoldedㅋㅋ

8. [+285, -9] My favourite is the Superpowers special. Gary's lol lols

9. [+289, -19] Mine's the Yooruce Willis special and every time they get Park Ji Sung to guest~ Hyo Jin PD needs to come back....

10. [+117, -4] Stop doing games already and bring back the nametag ripping

11. [+138, -29] I liked the episode with IU and Park Ji Sungㅋㅋ

12. [+74, -6] Peaceful Gary was legendary ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

13. [+72, -8] The baseball episode was boring. The rating was high because the guests are people you don't normally see on variety show

14. [+38, -1] Running Man has now become Game Man... The best episodes are when they don't invite guests

i know RM was very thriller when they do nametag ripping every episode, but even they dont do that now the funs still in there.

as a fan we must consider the fact that the members are older and their skill + strength >>>>>>>>>>>> new guests. Thats why they only do nametag ripping with some restriction (invite super strong guest as monster, doing it by themself, couple nametag, etc).

Anyway congrats for 5th year anniversary, keep running. Fighting!!

There were a lot of great ones instead of the ones in the list. Jung Woo Sung, Flower Boy special, Pirates and the time travel are some of my favs.

도화 said...

The super hero and choi min soo episodes were awesome.

#8
SAME. i really like when they all hv superpowers hahha they must be embarassed doing that but the cg effect is jjang !! They look real haha

mrs.cho said...

Gary's lolols and peaceful gary oh they were hilarious

Ivery said...

Yeah , I agree ,they need to stop inviting SOO much guest at once ,they should just stick to inviting about 1 or 2 >>>

placeforu said...

I love ep 102 and 147, both are with Kim Soohyun. I also like the ep where Lee Seung Gi appears and Yoo-nim and LSG just ignores Kwangsoo while talking. Also the earlier ep where Yoo Jaesuk gets to be with Son YeJin. I like older eps so much better. Like some comments pointed out, RM needs their original PD back. It seems like some of RM pds were working in China or sth.

anon said...

The only RM episode where I made it to the end was the one with lee si young and choo sung hoon. Never understood the hype around this show not even during its so called glory days

12oclock said...

GARY LOLOLOL IS THE BEST

CHANDERGIRL said...

I personally like the ep w Yoo In Young, Lee Yoo Ri, Seo Woo, Choi Yeo Jin, Kim Min Seo the most.

butterkookies said...

Running Man was the best in the earlier days when Joong Ki was still a part of it. Name tag ripping and Hide and seek games were G O L D.

3. [+6,641, -173] More fun when they don't invite guests



^ I couldn't agree more

----> QIANNIE <---- said...

or just none at all. they are best when there are no guests. you can tell they are more comfortable with each other like that. don't need to cater to boring guests.

amaBeez said...

as for best guest, for me i choose Park Ji Sung! it's always freakin' hilarious everytime he come.. as for best episode, probably but when the first time(?) they did the super power episode.. Gary LOLOL is unforgettable! XD

xxxwakaka said...

I love it more when there's no guest at all... or when all RM members teamed up together in one team ^^

Itsallaboutu said...

Lets hope the current PD reads this ^_^

Pemnvunuch said...

For me:

1. Episode 205: Lee Guk Joo, Hong Jin Young
2. Episode 142: Lee Bo Young
3. Episode 135: Jackie Chan

disqus_QBwmIa4Cha said...

When they went to China and SJH went undercover is my fav

Mapel said...

I love many RM episodes lol
Its fun and STILL fun for me. Unlike many that said it's boring now.

Irene said...

I am not fan of RM since beginning, I start watch RM since 2013 but I already watch all episode until last week.
I still love them, and for me yeah, I love RM ep 1-150 and I find ep boring after 200 ep just sometime its really fun.
but i will watch every episode.
I cant imagine if RM really end one day T___T

Mameha Serafina said...

RM Ep 7 is my favorite. Yong Hwa CN BLUE <3
Every episodes that contain foods always make me craving for korean food. I want RM PD to invite Lee Hyori again, please

Aaerika said...

Football superpowers episode with Ji-sung and IU never fails getting me in stitches.

hana said...

Yeah my faves are park jisung,choi minsoo, and yoource willis special

paradise said...

I love watching running Man when Lee Seung Gi as guest ♡ His latest RM episode early this year too got high ratings with 17.8 % 😊

주황 공주 said...

GARY LOLOL . HAHAHAHAHA

Random Noona said...

CHOI MIN SOO (GRASSHOPPER HUNTING) + KANG GARY SPECIAL EP (SUPERPOWER, GARY LOLOL)

atticus.finch said...

In fact ... they're still running .... well, running from the car to the 'game spot' ...

genevieve said...

What ep is that?

meowmel said...

Sigh miss the days of name tag ripping

genevieve said...

What ep? Pls tell.me thanks.

meowmel said...

Its not as fun as back then

sojuqueen said...

I used to love photograph sessions and gary was always so peaceful. They need to bring it back for the old times.
I loved this one episode.... it has Gong Yoo. And one game happened in the pool and you have to hang on to the rod... and I think someone pulled Yoo Jae Suk's trousers.. can anyone remind me which episode was that?

chowrong said...

Peaceful gary is the bc first episode and garys lolos is en 75

sojuqueen said...

what is the 'lolol' about?

chowrong said...

Choi min soo is the best

chowrong said...

Ep 75 when running mans have powers and gary can duplicate himself in 4 ppl that look like him and gary calls them lololols

kimseokjin said...

ep 75 :D

xxxdjx said...

Choi Minsoo's ep! Whenever guest wasn't intimidated or could put good fight to KJK, hahaha.
And I love the ep with Lee Gukjoo, Hong Jinyoung, Baek Jinyoung and Fei..because the girls were riot!
Earlier episodes with name tag ripping and shoes' bell.

KroncongProtol said...

best comment ever

genevieve said...

Thank you. . :-)

pinocchio said...

My personal favorite:
1. Flower Boys episode with Kim Soo Hyun and Lee hyun woo
2. Park Ji Sung and IU
3. TVXQ first appearance (ep 27)

pinocchio said...

Tea time is legendary. I laughed out loud back then.

alepazestre said...

peaceful gary is legendary indeed

Sandy Claws said...

My favorite is probably the Busan F4 (ep 127), that one was freaking hilarious.
As far as guests I would say Yonghwa, Nichkhun, Seung Gi, Woo Bin and Suzy just because they seem to have been the ones to click with the cast the most and are just really easy going on the episodes.

ilss14 said...

I really liked the one with the evil actresses, I laughed through the whole episode XD

Forgodsake said...

I watched eps 127 couple times, and it's still hilarious and fun. I kept replaying the part when yonghwa n the boys wore the wig while jihyo with kikwang and they were rapping with Gary. I laughed so hard.Hahaaha

panshel said...

My favorite episode is the Year of the Snake episode with Jung Yong Hwa, Simon D, Lee Jong Hyun, Lee Ki Kwang, and Choi Ji Woo. I loved the solving of the puzzle.

My second favorite episode is probably Winter Olympics with Seo In Guk, Baro, Park Seo Joon, Son Ho Jun, and Kang Ye Won. Kim Jong Kook was hysterical leading his own team.

Itsallaboutu said...

Ep. 175

b2ng said...

i like the avengers, the lol lols and the alien ep when kwangsoo became a conehead and sukjin became a green alien with a big ass nose XD

ohsefuq said...

i love every frikkin episodes when RM team didnt hold back, turned the table and ripping off the guest's strong image/persona. like what they did to kim so hyun, woo bin, infinite L, yoo ah in etc

lyra2015 said...

bogaerde said...

That eps has so many twists, mainly because of HaHa's time controller power right? That eps was so hilarious, indeed.

bogaerde said...

That Antagonist Female special, right? The guests are so fierce (unlike what I expected). A great eps, indeed.

bogaerde said...

Yeah, the two original PD have left the show.

The latest thing I heard about the two are the 1st PD who left is the PD of Inkigayo and the 2nd one said in an interview he wanted to take a break. But before that he also took part as some sort of adviser (?) for RM China.

CHANDERGIRL said...

yessss! 😁 it's one of the very few recent episodes that is fun till the last second.

chowrong said...

sorry its actually ep 74! And yes, Its one of my favorite episodes

aiwan1020 said...

Choi Minsoo episodes are the best!!!!!

Melody said...

me too, I only watched his episodes, he's great in varieties <3

Shushu said...

me too, I love ep 27 though I wasn't really into the dancing part. Yunho and baby JoongKi's drawings were legendary and the running balls part was so intense.

KAISOO_tbh said...

same i rewatch this episode again & again once in a while & its always as funny as the first time i watch it,i always cry of laughter

KAISOO_tbh said...

i really like when they used to do hide and seek name tag ripping & also like when they had to find the guest in buildings full of ppl dressed in the same costumes also Yooruce Willis or super powers with no guests ,i watch running man since day 1 but honestly its getting more boring ..i used to be so excited for sundays & the first thing in the morning i would watch was running man but now sometimes i watch 3 days later or i force myself to finish an episode too ..but yeah time passes fast it started airing in like 2010 & its already 2015 like it seems like the first episode just aired yesterday ,but no its the fith year

wvci said...

I like RM when it's more thrill, now RM is more a comedy centered show
