The stars of SBS’s new drama “The Escape of the Seven” are coming to “Running Man”!

On October 8, “Running Man” aired a fun sneak peek of next week’s episode, which will feature “The Escape of the Seven” stars Uhm Ki Joon, Lee Joon, and Yoon Jong Hoon as guests.

In keeping with the theme of “The Escape of the Seven,” the premise of the upcoming episode is that the “Running Man” cast and guests have been imprisoned for various unknown crimes—and not all of them will be able to escape.

The preview begins with the “Running Man” members welcoming their three guests, after which Ji Suk Jin makes a hilarious faux pas. As the episode was filmed weeks in advance, Uhm Ki Joon’s character had not yet appeared in “The Escape of the Seven” at the time of filming—but in an attempt to praise his villainous acting, Ji Suk Jin exclaims, “I cursed Uhm Ki Joon’s character a lot while watching!” To make things worse, unlike in his hit series “The Penthouse” (which was created by the same director-writer team), Uhm Ki Joon doesn’t play a villain in “The Escape of the Seven.”

When Uhm Ki Joon points out with a laugh that he hasn’t appeared in the drama yet, everyone cracks up as Kim Jong Kook jokes, “[Ji Suk Jin] can see the future.”

Soon afterwards, the 10 stars find themselves trapped in a gated prison surrounded by fire. The men use force in their attempts to escape the room—but once they get outside, they find that the car waiting for them can only hold six passengers.

Things quickly get heated as the stars rush to become the ones to “escape,” with Yoo Jae Suk and Kim Jong Kook getting into a passionate argument during a debate.

Finally, the 10 stars must figure out what their respective crimes are in order to escape. Ji Suk Jin declares that his crime is insulting others, and Uhm Ki Joon jokes, “Are you sure it isn’t fraud?” Meanwhile, Yoon Jong Hoon laughs, “I have no idea what my crime is, but at any rate, I’m sorry.”

The “Escape of the Seven”-themed episode of “Running Man” will air on October 15 at 6:15 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out the new preview below!
