Korean TV: Running Man – 런닝맨

Posted on Updated on

Screen shot 2014-11-18 at 6.51.28 PMKorean TV mostly needs no translation. It is quirky and humorous enough on its own to understand, almost as if watching a game of charades.

Among my favourite shows is 런닝맨 or ‘Running Man’ in English.

Yoo Jae-suk is the ringleader of this improv comedy featuring some excellent Korean comedians and performers who unfold a storyline filled with a series of challenges that they have to address as a team competing against half of the remainder of the panel. It is a timeless show, and can be found playing on reel in most Korean hotel rooms.

Enjoy the inserts below. I think you will get the idea pretty quickly, although be warned, it can be addictive.
