SBS’s “Running Man” will be celebrating Christmas with a festive and star-studded special!
On December 16, the variety show aired a preview of next week’s Christmas-themed episode, which will feature guests Hwang Chi Yeol, Sung Hoon, Park Ha Na, Jeon Hye Bin, Han Sun Hwa, and Girls’ Generation’s Choi Sooyoung.
The newly released preview begins by teasing the final installment of the show’s “Year-End Payments” race, with Yoo Jae Suk, Jun So Min, and Ji Suk Jin hoping to meet legendary Hong Kong actor Chow Yun Fat in his hometown.
After hearing some good news from the production crew, Jun So Min remarks, “If things go well, we might be able to meet him!” The trio then appears to embark on a search for the actor, asking “Where is he?” As the caption teases a “miracle,” Yoo Jae Suk looks surprised as he asks the staff members, “Now?” Ji Suk Jin similarly exclaims, “This is unbelievable! Really?”
The preview goes on to pique viewers’ curiosity by hiding the identity of an approaching mystery guest as Yoo Jae Suk says, “He’s coming, he’s coming!”
Back in Korea, all eight members of “Running Man” gather for a Christmas party with an impressive lineup of guest stars. HaHa is especially excited to see actor Sung Hoon, jumping into his arms while shouting, “I like him so much!” Meanwhile, actress Park Ha Na praises someone by saying, “This person is really great.”
Jeon Hye Bin surprises the cast by announcing that she intends to form a couple with Ji Suk Jin, while Lee Kwang Soo and Yoo Jae Suk attempt to impress prospective partners Han Sun Hwa and Sooyoung with their dancing skills.
The clip ends on a cliffhanger, with the “Running Man” cast looking confused as they inspect a mysterious drawing. The cast members ask each other, “What is this?” and “What secret is he hiding?” Kim Jong Kook says accusingly, “As soon as things started, he went over there,” and Ji Suk Jin exclaims defensively, “I don’t know what’s going on either!”
“Running Man” will air its “Miracle of Christmas” episode on December 21 at 4:50 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out the preview below!
