Yoo Jae Seok introduced Yeo Jin Goo as 2014’s ‘rising star,’ and after feeling the actor’s arm, said, “Jin Goo, you’ve been exercising?” surprised at how much the actor has grown. At this, Yeo Jin Goo seemed a little embarrassed, and explained that he really likes sports.
On the episode, Yeo Jin Goo teamed up with Yoo Jae Suk and participated in the ‘Running Water Land Big 3’ game, where he showed a strong confidence in diving. When he stepped onto the 7.5m (24.6 ft) diving board, Yoo Jae Suk tried to stop him, but he said, “7.5 m is fine, I think I can do it,” and made easy work of it.
Moreover, when he was running the name tag race as the red team’s representative, he fearlessly approached Im Siwan, immediately ripping off the ZE:A member’s name tag. At this, Im Siwan, frustrated, said, “I’m first again.” He had been the first to lose his name tag in a previous episode of “Running Man,” as well.
But, Yeo Jin Goo left the scene with a smile on his face, wholeheartedly enjoying himself.
Netizens who watched the episode commented on how charismatic Yeo Jin Goo was, with his muscular body and low voice at a young age, that he is perfect for “Running Man,” etc.
