In the episode, Jo Jung Suk finds his variety show character in his innocence. Paired with Song Ji Hyo for a noodle “Peppero Game,” the actor starts to sweat more and more as their turn comes up, eliciting teases from the “Running Man” members, who ask if he likes Song Ji Hyo. Jo Jung Suk struggles to deny, all the while avoiding eye contact, effectively throwing the whole set into fits of laughter.
The actor’s streak of innocence continues, when, in another race, he is tricked by other members into thinking a random item is important, which he then puts his all into protecting.
The production said, “Jo Jung Suk’s off-the-wall and cute appearance on the show kept a smile on the faces of the cast and crew all throughout filming. You’ll be able to see a totally different side of Jo Jung Suk through this episode.”
Shin Min Ah and Jo Jung Suk’s episode of “Running Man” is set to air on October 5 at 6:10 p.m. (KST).
