Anniversaries, especially in the entertainment industry are always special and wonderful for whoever is celebrating it. Usually, in order to celebrate things like these, interesting concepts and ideas are used in order to make the year or the particular anniversary special, each time it comes around. The current cast of the popular SBS variety show, “Running Man,” celebrated their fifth anniversary together by doing something very interesting, which not only highlighted the bonds that they had forged with each other, but also highlighted the immensely popular “Monday Couple.” Read on to learn more about the “Running Man” cast’s celebration of their fifth anniversary, and how the “Monday Couple” was highlighted.

Last Sunday, October 4, 2015, according to Soompi, a very special episode of the variety show “Running Man” was aired in celebration of the current cast’s fifth anniversary with each other.


The episode, according to another article on Soompi, was entitled “Running Man Member Special, 24 Hours Unanimous Race.”

The cast members of “Running Man” were divided into two teams, and were locked in a house for twenty four hours,  in which they had to complete three tasks or challenges all together in order to get out of the house.

The episode was heartwarming, as it highlighted the relationships that each cast member was able to forge with the other cast members, and it showed their bond as a cast.

According to Soompi, the episode, although it happened off camera, highlighted the close bond that the “Monday Couple” Song Ji Hyo and Gary had formed.

The report stated that after some of the cast members, which included Song Ji Hyo and Gary, were splashed with water as punishment for not completing one of their tasks, Gary, upon being given a dry towel in order to wipe himself dry by a member of their staff, immediately went to look for Song Ji Hyo and made sure that she was able to dry herself off properly.


A picture of Gary helping Song Ji Hyo was posted on their official Facebook page recently.
