On May 19, SBS’s “Running Man” PD Lee Hwan Jin spoke with news outlet OSEN about BTS.
The PD said, “This week’s 300th episode special features BTS and the ‘Running Man’ cast have a seven on seven battle. We needed young opponents with overwhelming energy and BTS also has seven members, so it was a perfect match.”
Lee Hwan Jin continues, “Actually, since BTS shows powerful performances on stage I had high expectations. However, they were weaker than I had expected. But that made them even more cute and charming. It was the first time for BTS to appear on a variety show as a whole group, but they readily agreed to appear and were really fun. They were excited themselves since it was their first time. V and Jungkook did especially well.”
