South Korean entertainer Jee Seok-jin to go on temporary hiatus from Running Man following health issues

South Korean actor-singer Jee Seok-jin will be taking a break from filming Running Man, the hit variety show which he has been a part of since 2010, due to health issues.

On Monday (Dec 18), Jee’s agency ESteem Entertainment announced: “Jee Seok-jin recently underwent a health checkup. Following the (doctor’s opinion) that treatment was necessary, we decided to take a short break from SBS’ Running Man.”

In a statement to the press, Jee said: “I will take a short break to rebuild my physical strength and do my best to come back with a healthier version of myself as soon as possible. Thank you for always supporting and loving Jee Seok-jin.”

Jee’s hiatus was also mentioned on the official social media channels of Running Man, which also referred to the 57-year-old as “the strong eldest brother of Running Man”.

Jee Seok-jin is one of the original cast members of Running Man, alongside Yoo Jae-suk, Lee Kwang-soo, Gary, Haha, Kim Jong-kook and Song Joong-ki. Jee’s hiatus comes months after the departure of Jeon So-min from the show in October, following her desire “to recharge”.
