Watch: Lee Si Young Takes Kim Jong Kook Down With Self-Defense Tricks; Jun So Min Hilariously Struggles To Do The Same
Lee Si Young appeared as a guest on the December 9 broadcast of the SBS variety show, where she demonstrated some helpful self-defense moves. The actress and former boxer first asked Lee Kwang Soo to grab her by the collar, then showed how she could easily pull him to the ground by using her body weight.
As the “Running Man” cast expressed their awe at her skills, Yoo Jae Suk asked Jun So Min to try the same move on him. However, instead of pulling Yoo Jae Suk to the ground, the unpredictable Jun So Min cracked everyone up by smacking him in the head instead.
When Jun So Min finally attempted to imitate Lee Si Young’s trick on Ji Suk Jin, she had a hard time taking him down, and Lee Si Young ultimately stepped up to demonstrate the proper technique. Ji Suk Jin fell to the ground immediately, commenting, “It’s different [with Lee Si Young]. It’s totally different.”
As the other cast members made fun of Ji Suk Jin for getting his pants dirty, Lee Si Young decided to try teaching an easier self-defense move. Once again using Lee Kwang Soo as her partner, she asked him to grab her tightly from behind. She then demonstrated how she could escape his grasp by knocking him off balance.
Lee Si Young added, “I can also do this with [Kim Jong Kook].” True to her word, even the famously strong singer was no match for her technique, and she was able to take him down right away.
Unfortunately, however, Jun So Min didn’t fare quite as well when she attempted the same move on Yoo Jae Suk. Instead of pushing Yoo Jae Suk away from her, Jun So Min ended up falling to the ground herself—and hilariously dragging Yoo Jae Suk down with her.
