Fans of old school Korean variety shows are getting an early Christmas gift this year from “Running Man” with a blast-from-the-past “X-Man” special!

At the end of December 13’s episode of “Running Man,” viewers get a sneak peek at the next episode, which is a throwback to SBS‘s beloved classic variety show “X-Man.” “X-Man” aired from 2003 to 2007, and featured top celebrities trying to find the “X-Man” hidden among them every week while playing games like the famous “Of Course!” and pairing up as couples for missions.

The Christmas special of “Running Man” is aiming to bring all the fun back by inviting a mixture of guests, both those from the era when “X-Man” reigned supreme as well as some fresh new faces. The guests next week will include Lee Ji Hyun, Chae Yeon, Stephanie, Lee Jong Soo, Shinhwa‘s Andy, AOA‘s Seolhyun, iKON‘s Bobby and B.I, and comedienne Kim Ji Min.

It seems that Yoo Jae Suk is taking on his former hosting role from “X-Man,” joined by Ji Suk Jin and Kim Jong Kook (wearing a Turbo snapback of course). Fans of “X-Man,” get ready to feel the nostalgia when you see the stars dancing on the platform to Destiny’s Child‘s “Lose My Breath” again, just like old times!

We also get a sneak peek at the cast’s game of “Of Course!”, with Haha saying to Gary, “You’re really dating Song Ji Hyo, aren’t you?” See how Song Ji Hyo and Gary react in the preview below!

The special “X-Man” episode of “Running Man” will be airing on December 20. Be sure to catch up by watching this week’s hilarious zombie special below!
