On the June 8 episode of “Running Man,” now retired Manchester United player Park Ji Sung featured as the special guest. As with the past two years, “Running Man” members will be playing in the special “Dream Cup” match of the Asia Cup with Park Ji Sung, and this episode was filled with games to train the members for the upcoming match.
The final game of the day was a match between the “Running Man” members and Park Ji Sung versus a team of idols who are well-known for their soccer skills. The idol team included 2AM‘s Changmin, ZE:A‘s Dongjun, BEAST‘s Kikwang, Yoseob, and Doojoon, BTOB‘s Minhyuk, VIXX‘s Leo, and B1A4‘s Baro.
