“Running Man” (런닝맨) remains to be one of the most-watched Korean variety programme in our country, though fans are still devastated by the news of popular member Lee Kwang Soo’s departure back in May. Last month, the cast and crew celebrated the show’s record-breaking 11th anniversary together.
In the latest episode of the long-running variety show that was broadcasted over the weekend, the scene involving members Ji Seok Jin, Song Ji Hyo and guest Lee Young Ji became the talk of the town among local netizens. During the game session, Seok Jin asked, “What is the capital city of Malaysia?”.
As seen in the video shared by local TikTok user known as @jwngk8, Young Ji was struggling to give the right answer, although Seok Jin did lend his hand by providing some major hints. When it was Ji Hyo’s turn, the “Princess Hours” star “confidently” answered that the capital city of Malaysia is Manila!
The TikTok video has in turn caught the attention of many Malaysian fans. Looking through the comments, many of the netizens were greatly amused by the answers given by both the young rapper-TV personality and also the Hallyu actress. One commentator humorously remarked in response to the latter’s antics, “I bet Ji Hyo bought her confidence from the Shopee app!”
Several other fans also pointed out that this past Sunday’s episode of “Running Man” was among the funniest and most entertaining ever. Do you guys think so too?
