Running Man: Episode 172 recap

Running Man: Episode 172 recap by DramaBeans. Broadcast on November 17, 2013.

We pick up with last week’s hide-and-seek game against idol group EXO. With less than 20 seconds left before the switch, Jae-suk corners two idol boys in the elevator… then swiftly eliminates them both, tieing the game to 5:5.

As EXO prepares to hunt down the cast, Kwang-soo… pretends to be a mannequin? Haha. Is this the idea that nobody will notice if you hide in plain sight?

Kai heads back to his former hiding place thinking that no one would be hiding there, right? Wrong. He finds Suk-jin behind some boxes and eliminates him.

Guessing that hiding isn’t a safe tactic anymore, Kwang-soo switches places with his VJ

“It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over”

New graduate Da Eun (Son Ye Jin) has always been sheltered by her hardworking father, Soon Man (Kim Kap Soo), who has sacrificed everything to keep her happy. They have their share of difficulties – Da Eun is repeatedly failing interviews for her dream job, and Soon Man is often disrespected at his string of menial jobs – but their lives are fulfilling, driven by their love for one another.

The clock is counting down the days until the statute of limitation expires on an old kidnapping and subsequent murder case, one that has law authorities stumped for more than 15 years. Police are on the prowl for a last chance to bring the murderer to justice, but all they have to go on is a recording of a phone call that the suspect made to the victim’s family

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2013 – October Week 4

By in News posted Oct October 27th, 2013 No comments

It is not a surprise that IU’s “The Red Shoes” moves up to the top spot this week with a near perfect score as this song has dominated all Korean charts in the past week. Besides this title song, all songs from IU’s third album “Modern Times” are ranked very high on many online charts. In fact, she nearly swept the top 10 on some. With year-end awards not far away from now, IU’s release is on very good timing. She is trying to win the top female soloist on our Soompi Gayo Awards for the third straight year. It will all depend on how long “The Red Shoes” will stay hot.

Last week’s top two songs are still going strong as both Busker Busker’s “First Love” and Lim Chang Jung’s “About Me” moves down a spot to No. 2 and No

By in News posted Oct October 18th, 2013 No comments

Returning to the acting scene, T.O.P (Choi Seung Hyun) of BIGBANG shows off a breathtaking display of visuals with this new pictorial.

T.O.P’s agency, YG Entertainment, revealed that he had completed shooting for a magazine pictorial and released these accompanying teaser pictures. T.O.P’s intense eyes depict a certain sadness, and the pictures create a lonely atmosphere, all the better to capture the hearts of females.

In the pictorial, T.O.P perfectly distills the essence of his character Lee Myung Hoon in “The Alumni,” the youth of ill fate, capturing it with restrained emotion.

T.O.P explained why he picked “The Alumni” in the interview he had with the magazine, “The character and the type of movie, I was drawn to the character because it seemed like I could just really just act him out

Seungri is 23 years old in Korean age this year. He′s still young, but he knows how to write his own songs and even produce. The track GG Be is especially about the complicated emotions he felt after a breakup.

Seungri′s expressions betrayed the anticipation and concerns he felt toward his solo comeback.

"So many thoughts race through my head," he said about the many different reactions to his first performance.

He said he was also worried that what he wanted to convey to his audience didn′t get through

allkpop [TV Program Guide] [Variety Edition]: [Op-Ed] Leessangs departure from variety: the problem with jumping to conclusions

By in News posted Oct September 27th, 2012 No comments

I don’t usually discuss serious topics on the allkpop TV Guide. But this past week, something really big happened, something worth talking about – and it, sadly, didn’t need to happen at all.

I am, of course, talking about the hip-hop duo Leessang‘s announcement that they would be ending all of their stints on variety programs, with Gil on ‘Infinity Challenge‘ and Gary on ‘Running Man’. This is a reaction to the massive backlash they have received over a concert (‘Super 7‘), featuring the ‘Infinity Challenge’ members, that was produced by Leessang Company.

First of all, here’s a quick overview of everything that went down:

Leessang Company (a separate entity from the hip-hop duo, albeit managed by them) announced a ‘Super 7′ concert a few months ago featuring the Infinity Challenge members, meant as a project for their loyal fans who had waited for them throughout the entire MBC strike
