Watch: “Running Man” Reveals Fun Sneak Peek Of “The Penthouse” Stars Getting Competitive In New Preview
On February 7, the SBS variety show aired an exciting preview of next week’s episode, which will feature guest appearances by the three actors from the hit drama. The clip begins with the “Running Man” cast excitedly greeting their new guests, who are introduced as being “from a penthouse in the next neighborhood over.”
Yoo Jae Suk then brings up the fact that Ha Do Kwon previously guested on “Running Man” with “The Penthouse” leading ladies Lee Ji Ah, Kim So Yeon, and S.E.S.’s Eugene several months ago. He jokingly asks, “Are you here to beat [Kim] Jong Kook today as well?” and Ha Do Kwon insists, “I don’t have any ambitions at all today.”
However, the preview amusingly goes on to show Ha Do Kwon unleashing his fierce competitive streak once the games begin, with the caption teasing, “Almost as soon as he finishes speaking, he returns to being the warrior of ‘The Penthouse’?!”
Initially, Yoon Jong Hoon is shocked by the intense atmosphere on “Running Man,” where the cast members will do anything to win, even if that means getting into vicious physical fights with one another. Yoo Jae Suk and Kim Jong Kook also scold Yoon Jong Hoon for not remembering the answer to a question, and Park Eun Suk later defends himself passionately against accusations by saying, “See? I really don’t have it!”
In the end, all three actors wind up adapting to the brutal world of “Running Man,” with the caption revealing, “At the ‘Running Man’ members’ lack of mercy, the three men make up their mind to turn to the dark side.” As they begin bending the rules to win, the “Running Man” cast starts to complain about their ruthlessness—but as the clip hilariously teases, the guests “succeed in completely adapting to ‘Running Man’ through upgraded cheating techniques.”
The next episode of “Running Man” will air on February 14 at 5 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out the full preview below!
