Popular South Korean variety programme Running Man will air a new episode in Singapore, it seems.
Cast members Yoo Jae-suk, Kim Jong-kook, Song Ji-hyo, Ji Suk-jin, Yang Se-chan and Haha were seen in Singapore to film the variety programme.
Aside from regular members, sharp-eyed fans spotted South Korean actress Shin Ye-eun and former professional StarCraft player Hong Jin-ho. The duo are likely to be guests on the episode.
They were first spotted at the Night Safari, a nocturnal zoo in Singapore. Later, fans caught sight of them at Lau Pa Sat, one of the city’s most iconic hawker markets, at around 10 PM yesterday (4 Nov).
After the filming, some of the members even snapped a photo with fans.
There were sightings of the cast filming in renowned local landmarks today (5 Nov). This includes some of Singapore’s must-visit locations Haji Lane and Clarke Quay.
Fans of the programme were elated that the programme finally came to Singapore for filming.
“It is my first time seeing Running Man filming in my own country,” said Natasha Lee, 29. Lee has been a fan of cast member Kim Jong-kook for 14 years now.
Witnessing the overwhelming support for the show even after many years was also an “amazing and interesting sight” for her.
Psychologist Heather Gan, 29, an avid viewer of the show since 2014, said she “[hopes] to see them try unique local food and include Singapore landmarks”.
Back in 2013, Running Man held fan meets in Singapore, where cast members interacted with fans. However, this marks the first time in Running Man history that the well-loved programme hit our shores to film an episode.
