For four straight weeks, SBS’s “Running Man” has been achieving No. 1 viewer ratings among the key demographic of viewers ages 20 to 49.

According to Nielsen Korea, the October 8 episode achieved an average viewership rating of 4.3 percent nationwide. The first half recorded an average viewer rating of 4.5 percent while the second scored an average viewer rating of 6.6 percent. The greatest peak was at 8.2 percent.


In this episode, the “Running Man” members continued from last week’s “dangerous trip” mission. Yoo Jae Suk, Ji Suk Jin, and Lee Kwang Soo had to fill up the number 100 during their part-time job in order to succeed. Their second part-time job was net fishing. However, the kind of fish they wanted was nowhere to be seen, and Yoo Jae Suk got his hand bitten by Lee Kwang Soo, making everyone burst into laughter.

Eventually, they couldn’t succeed with the mission, so they went to their third part-time job, which was drawing caricatures. During the process, Yoo Jae Suk attempted to take off Ji Suk Jin’s socks while Ji Suk Jin tried to switch mission bags with Yoo Jae Suk. Eventually, Yoo Jae Suk teamed up with with Lee Kwang Soo, and they beat Ji Seok Jin to grab a ticket to Seoul.

The most-watched minute of the show where the viewership peaked at 8.2 percent was when Ji Suk Jin filled up the number 100 by staying behind in Busan alone and selling hotteok (Korean pancake), despite the fact that Lee Kwang Soo had already paid off his debt.
