On the episode of “Running Man” that will be airing on September 28, the cast of “My Lovely Girl” will be making a guest appearance and competing against the “Running Man” members in an “R-POP Star Race” special. The cast—Rain, f(x)’s Krystal, Park Young Kyu, Alex, and Kim Ki Bang—will compete in the race that will be programmed in the form of an audition.
Haha, Song Ji Hyo, Gary, Kim Jong Kook, Lee Kwang Soo, and Ji Suk Jin will form the “Running Man” team. Yoo Jae Seok, Rain, Krystal, Park Young Kyu, Alex, and Kim Ki Bang will form the “My Lovely Girl” team. The “R-POP Star Race” will consist of a series of missions in a preliminary round, team battle, blind audition, and collaboration mission, and decide upon a winning team in the final audition.
This parody of “K-POP Star” is said to be very competitive, as critical prizes would be given to the victorious team. The winning team will get a gold microphone. In addition, if the drama team is to win, they will have a chance to air the drama’s music video after the broadcast of “Running Man.” If the “Running Man” team is to win, they will have an opportunity to become a hero of an upcoming episode. In order to win these prizes, all of the cast members were said to have given their all in the competition.
In the preliminary round, the ‘contestants’ began by introducing themselves. The “Running Man” team introduced themselves as an entire group, just like an idol group would. On the other hand, the drama team introduced themselves individually, each expressing their own unique charms. The following missions consisted of physically draining tasks that even took down Rain, who is known for his strong physical stamina.
The production team behind “Running Man” revealed, “Singers Rain, Krystal, and Alex, as well as Park Young Kyu, who has some knowledge about music, were all very passionate about the missions, just as if they were participating in a real audition program. Even the production team was shocked by the level of spirit they showed as they battled to win the Running Man auditions. Please tune in to witness the action-packed episode.”
The episode will air this coming September 28 on SBS.
