Due lớn licensing issues, some of the older episodes of “Running Man” haven’t been available lớn viewers on any legal streaming site. But I have great news to lớn share. As of April 1, KOCOWA will sequentially air classic “Running Man” episodes every Thursday, starting with Episode 1. & since it’s đoạn phim on demand, you can rewatch it as many times as you’d like, whenever you like. This should please “Running Man” fans (like myself), who have missed the older episodes và the OG cast.

No offense khổng lồ the newest cast members Jeon So-Min và Yang Se-Chan — who certainly have their own charm — but there was something really special about the chemistry between the original lineup: Yoo Jae-Suk, Ji Suk-Jin, Kim Jong-Kook, Haha, Lee Kwang-Soo and tuy nhiên Ji-Hyo (who initially made her “Running Man” debut as a guest, before joining as a full-time cast member) are still on the long-running variety series. Former cast members Kang Gary, tuy nhiên Joong-Ki & then-teenage idol Lizzy left to pursue other opportunities.

Hwang Jung-Eum (“Kill Me, Heal Me,” “She Was Pretty,” “To All the Guys Who Loved Me“) và singer Lee Hyori were the guest stars on the first episode. Hyori teased Jung-Eum good-naturedly about being so young and cute. They showed off their energy and fighting spirit in the challenges, which ranged from racing around attached to a clothing rack lớn trying khổng lồ time their jumps perfectly so that they would appear in the middle of the camera frame each và every time. Originally aired on June 21, 2010 in South Korea, the humor và shenanigans held up incredibly well all these years later.

This debut episode reminds us that “Running Man” started as a very physical series, where the cast members (and their guests) stayed up all night shooting on location & ran around a lot. Lizzy wasn’t a part of the cast yet, so the two youngest members — song Joong-Ki & Lee Kwang-Soo — played their maknae roles well. Joong-Ki was cast as the heartthrob and Kwang-Soo as the clown. They became great friends on the show & were the perfect foils for each other from the get-go. But the funniest part of this episode is when the two eldest members — Ji Suk-Jin và Yoo Jae-Suk — play a game of Rock Paper Scissors that required them lớn use facial expressions rather than their hands. LOL!

Look forward lớn Episode 2 on April 8, when Song Ji-Hyo makes her first appearance (as a guest). It won’t be long before the on-camera flirtation between her & Kang Gary spawns the birth of the Monday Couple. (When IU guests on a later episode, she mentions that she adores the Monday Couple.) The guest stars include actor Lee Chun-Hee (“The Producers,” “Master’s Sun“) and the late K-pop star and actress Goo Ha-Ra (“It’s Okay, That’s Love“), who showed great comedic timing.

There’s a lot going on here, with the cast literally running around the expansive Suwon World Cup Stadium in search of golden pigs that will help them win the overall prize. But this episode is really fun for “Running Man” fans, because it sets in place the key roles that the cast will carry over to the present day. For instance, this is the birth of Kwang-Soo willing lớn betray anyone and everyone, including his frenemy Joong-Ki. As his team’s van is driving away, Kwang-Soo throws out a bag of swimming suits that Joong-Ki’s team needs. & I also love seeing song Ji-Hyo in her fearless prime. While all her teammates are afraid of the 10 meter diving board, she easily climbs up there, scouts out where the golden pigs are hidden in the pool & instructs her team on how to get them.
