This will be Joo Won’s first appearance on a Sunday variety show since he left KBS’ “1 Night, 2 Days” eight months ago. His appearance on “Running Man” is of particular interest to many viewers since “Running Man” and “1 Night, 2 Days” are time-slot rivals for ratings.
The production team of “Running Man” has been trying to cast Joo Won as a guest for many months but found it difficult do so due to his run in the musical “Ghost.” With that wrapping up and Joo Won looking at his upcoming Fall drama of the Korean version of the Japanese drama “Nodame Cantabile,” the actor is getting ready for a busy second half of 2014. In related news, Girls’ Generation‘s YoonA is being looked at as his leading lady.
The air date for Joo Won’s episode of “Running Man” has not been announced yet. Joo Won will be filming the episode today, Monday local time.
