“Running Man” Is Not Ending This Year

“Running Man” will be continuing, contradictory to all the previous reports about the show coming to an end.

On January 24, SBS released an official press release stating that in response to overwhelming viewer expressions of disappointment, the show will be continuing with the current six members.

According to SBS, “Director Nam Seung Yong of SBS Entertainment, who first planned ‘Running Man’ back in 2010, met with each of the cast members in the beginning of the year. He apologized for what happened during the attempts to reformat the show, and all six members agreed to keep going.”

Director Nam Seung Yong said, “Thank you to the ‘Running Man’ members for making this difficult decision. And for the fans, we will do our best to pay you back for your seven years of unwavering love with even more fun episodes in the future.”

Previously, following the controversy of Song Ji Hyo and Kim Jong Kook being suddenly removed from the show due to reformatting, it was announced that “Running Man” would be ending in February 2017.
