On Saturday (Nov 4), the hit South Korean variety programme Running Man filmed their first-ever episode set in Singapore – and a few lucky fans even managed to interact with the show’s stars.
Main cast members Yoo Jae-suk, Haha, Jee Seok-jin, Kim Jong-kook, Song Ji-hyo and Yang Se-chan, along with guest stars Hong Jin-ho and Shin Ye-eun, were spotted at various local landmarks, including Lau Pa Sat and Clarke Quay.
TikTok user @melade02 uploaded a video, shot at Lau Pa Sat, which gave a glimpse of the upcoming episode.
In the video, Yang Se-chan and Yoo Jae-suk can be seen trying satay and jumbo skewered squid as the other stars indulge in Lau Pa Sat’s dishes. Jee Seok-jin and Kim Jong-kook even took the time to take photos with fans during a break.
In a video posted by TikTok user @kbsiu, Yang Se-chan and Shin Ye-eun can be seen entertaining onlookers with dance moves, in front of Slingshot Singapore at Clarke Quay – which is where they’re presumably filming their punishment scene.
Running Man has been on the air since July 2010 and remains one of the most popular variety shows in Asia. Recently, actress Jeon So-min announced her departure from the show after being a cast member for six years. Her final episode is scheduled to air on Nov 12.
