South Korean actor Joo Woo Jae (주우재) has been gaining attention from K-variety fans with his witty charms during his several guest appearances on “Running Man”. Some even gave positive feedback about his chemistry with the other members, and have asked the production team to add him as a new member!
For those who aren’t really familiar with Woo Jae, he began his career as a fashion model. As an actor, some of his best known K-dramas include “Come and Hug Me”, “Please Don’t Date Him”, “Love Alert” and also “Best Chicken”.
The 35-year-old first appeared as a guest on the 16th January episode of “Running Man”. In particular, Woo Jae wowed the viewers with his impressive speaking skills, on top of his clumsy personality. At one point, he also made everyone laugh with his hilarious interaction with the more powerful Kim Jong Kook.
Just when the fans thought they’ve seen the last of Woo Jae, the celeb once again appeared in the “Tazza Special” episode. During the broadcast, Haha jokingly compared him to the comedian Lee Yoon Seok. Jong Kook also advised him to go through medical examination, saying, “Woo Jae is concerned about his health.” Despite getting teased by the members, Woo Jae wasn’t feeling disheartened at all, and even responded pleasantly to their jokes.
Joo Woo Jae’s third guest appearance came during the 601st episode of the variety show. He appeared alongside actors Byun Woo Seok and Park Kyung Hye. Yoo Jae Seok remarked during the broadcast, “We can say that we’ve already recorded enough footage of Woo Jae today. He’s getting more screen time.”
When Woo Jae appeared in the teaser for “Running Man”, many reacted positively and expressed their excitement about Woo Jae’s appearance on the show. They left comments such as, “It’s already fun”, “Seriously, I think it’ll be okay for him to be a regular member,” and also, “If he appears this much in such a short period of time, he’s actually a fixed member now.”
Not to mention, others also pointed out that Woo Jae reminded them of Lee Kwang Soo. Kwang Soo was best known for his tall appearance and also his clumsiness. In case you missed it, Kwang Soo left the show last year due to an injury he suffered. As most fans know, the “The Killer’s Shopping List” actor is famous for his dim-witted personality as shown throughout his stint in “Running Man”.
