“Running Man” is a popular South Korean variety show that first aired on July 11, 2010. The original premise of the show featured the MCs and special guests completing missions and trying to win races at a Korean landmark location. After Episode 48, the show moved away from the performers taking part in a series of missions at one landmark to competing in one long race at a number of different locations with one winner declared at the end of the race. “Running Man” has gained popularity in many parts of Asia due to fansubbing of the episodes into many different languages.

Former cast members include Lizzy, Song Joong Ki and Gary.
