Calling all fans of the popular South Korean variety show “Running Man”, you can get all your nametag-ripping muscles ready because Jaesuk and the gang are coming to town! 

Korean TV network, One HD have announced on their Facebook page that the cast of “Running Man” will be hitting the shores of Malaysia and Singapore once again for their “Running Man Fan Meeting Asia Tour 2014”.

Race start! Get ready to RUN.

This will be the lucky Singaporean fans’ second time of meeting them. For Malaysian fans, this will count as the first.

Last year, the “Running Man” members were scheduled to meet their fans in Malaysia on 7 September, however, the fan-meet was canceled at the last minute due to problems on the local organizers’ side. Many fans were understandably disappointed when the event was canceled.

Thank goodness no upset fan went all Sparta on the organizers.

To readers who are scratching their head and wondering what exactly “Running Man” is, here’s a little introduction:

It’s a petting zoo where you have a grasshopper leading a mismatched
(and often quarrelling) pack of penguin, impala, giraffe, monkey, cat and tiger.

No really, it’s a super popular South Korean Variety show where every week the main cast, along with their invited guest(s) for the week, run around completing missions. The missions have changed and evolved over the years but it still remains a favorite among viewers.

Let’s hope they play this game in the fan-meet.
Fans are definitely itching to rip off the traitor Giraffe’s nametag.

Made up of famous actors, singers and emcees, the cast of “Running Man” have provided many hearty laughs for their show’s viewers with their antics.
So far some of the cast members have visited Malaysia before for solo activities, but this will be the first time for the whole ensemble to come together as “Running Man”.
Though so far there is no confirmation of whether all or only some of the “Running Man” members will be present at the fan-meet, fans are already anticipating the arrival of Yoo Jaesuk, Kim Jongkook, Lee Kwangsoo, Gary, HaHa, Ji Sukjin and, the rose among the thorns, Song Ji Hyo to their countries.
This is how excited fans are right now!
