Actor Kim Woo Bin has been on the SBS Sunday variety show “Running Man” couple of times before, and each time, he has surprised viewers with his unexpected soft and clumsy side. The charismatic actor doesn’t look charismatic when he is on “Running Man,” and even admitted it on this week’s show when Yoo Jae Suk called him a “heodang,” a Korean term for someone who is unexpectedly clumsy and sometimes slow. Actor and singer Lee Seung Gi has also been called a “heodang” on the KBS variety show “1 Night, 2 Days.”
On this week’s “Running Man,” Kim Woo Bin flew over with singer and actor Rain and with the rest of the “Running Man” members to Australia to complete the mission of finding the treasure. He and Rain were given a stylish and handsome entrance on the show, riding into the dock on a yacht
Even though it cannot repeat the perfect score of last week, the duet “Some” between Soyu and Junggigo is No. 1 for the third straight week. This song just keeps piling up music show wins. Even before very strong competitions, this week “Some” still wins on KBS Music Bank. Odds don’t favor this song to be No. 1 again next week since we have a trio of major artists coming back and eyeing the top spot (more on that below). But “Some” has been incredibly durable in popularity and may surprise again next week.
We have five new songs in the top 10 this week. Just below “Some” is our highest new song. Moving up 17 spots to No. 2 is Sunmi’s new hit “Full Moon.” Last year, Sunmi successfully came back as a solo artist with the chart topping hit “24 Hours

During the press meeting and open filming site for tvN’s Emergency Couple on March 6, Song Ji Hyo said, “When I was eating out with the PD, we came to talk about how it would be fun to have Gary oppa as the cameo. So I called him on the spot, and he gladly accepted the offer right away.”
“Gary oppa was really worried about it. He asked me how many lines he has and how he has to say them. He even told me he practiced his ad-libs,” said the actress. “Since we were on Running Man together for three years, we had good teamwork. I’m thankful that Gary oppa helped out our drama.”

Chances are, if you’ve heard of SBS variety show “Running Man,” you’ve heard of Lee Kwang Soo, one of the seven principal cast members who is truly one-of-a-kind. From his elaborate antics to shocking betrayals, Lee Kwang Soo proves himself to be a riot – and we have the evidence right here. Read on for the ten reasons why we think he’s just about one of the most hilarious people ever (feel free to add to or disagree with in the comments section below!)
1. Because he looked like this when you first met him
Admit it. You knew he was awesome as soon as he got drenched during his first speech in the opening sequence of Running Man. And don’t get me wrong – you felt bad he was so pitiful, but you can’t help but laugh anyway
Comedian Yoo Jae Suk gave gifts to the guest university students who participated in the March 2 broadcast of SBS’ “Running Man.”
According to a “Running Man” representative on March 3, “Yoo Jae Suk gave iPads as gifts to the university students who participated in the ‘Running Man 2014 University War’ special.”
The rep explained, “Yoo Jae Suk wanted to express his gratitude toward all of the university students who actively participated on the show. He was too shy to give the gifts in person, so he asked the production team to give out the gifts on his behalf. He wanted to let this pass quietly, but people found out.”
Meanwhile, on the “Running Man 2014 University War” special, each cast member was given the mission to recruit two teammates from their designated universities
Don’t think it’s impossible until you try.
On March 2’s broadcast of SBS’ Running Man, the Running Man cast teamed up with students from Sogang University, Korea University, Chung Ang University, Kyung Hee University, Sungshin Women’s University, and Dong Guk University for the new school year special.
Depending on how well they did, each team received materials, ranging from water bottles to cans, to create a boat for the final mission of crossing the Han River.
Song Ji Hyo and her two Konkuk University students came second to last, choosing blankets over plastic bags . To everyone’s surprise, however, the folded blankets, wrapped in plastic, ended up being the best floating device, allowing Song Ji Hyo’s team to cross the Han River in less than 17 minutes
The latest episode of "Running Man" saw the cast members joining forces with students across Seoul to attempt one of the hardest missions ever created by the show"s crew - crossing the Han River in handcrafted boats!
Divided up invididually, each cast members went to a different university. The lucky schools were Seogang University with Lee Kwang Soo, Korea University with Yoo Jae Suk, Joongang University with Kim Jong Kook, Kyunghee University with Ji Suk Jin, Kunkook University with Song Ji Hyo, Dongguk University with HaHa, and finally, Sungshin Womens" University with a very happy Gary!
After gathering two students, each three-person team competed for building materials, which included, among other things, vinyl bags, empty cola cans, and even mattresses!
Finally setting out for the crossing, Song Ji Hyo"s team took a commanding lead, with their mattress boat that glided sleekily across the water
The March 2 broadcast of SBS’ “Running Man” was a “2013 University War” special. The “Running Man” members were each assigned a university attended by top stars around Seoul. Each member was given the mission to recruit two teammates from their assigned universities to participate in the race across the Han River.
Gary chose two female teammates from Sungshin Women’s University, and Song Ji Hyo selected two male teammates from Konkuk University.
As Song Ji Hyo was introducing her teammates, she said to Gary, “This guy is known as the Gary of Konkuk University.” Gary responded, “Is that why you picked him?” Gary’s look-alike provoked him saying, “Song Ji Hyo is mine,” and created laughter on set. Gary evoked more laughter as he accepted his defeat
Soyu and Jungigo’s “Some” not only repeated as No. 1 on our chart this week, but it becomes the first song in more than five and a half years to achieve a perfect score of 1000 points. The last song did it was Lee Hyori’s “U-Go-Girl” back in August Week 3 of 2008.
“Some” swept all the music shows last week and was also topped both GAON and Billboard Korea. It is still winning on music shows this week, and will be the favorite to be our No. 1 song for the third consecutive weeks next week. The question is whether “Some” can have another perfect score. We’ll find out next week.
Coming in a distant second to “Some” is our highest top 10 entry this week. Moving up 19 spots to No. 2 is a very special collaboration between Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon and SHINee’s Jonghyun
“Emergency Couple” has broken its previous ratings with a great margin!

On this episode, Oh Jin Hee (Song Ji Hyo) and Oh Chang Min (Choi Jin Hyuk) took small but steady steps towards getting closer again, as they reminisced their life before the divorce. Due to a collarbone fracture, Jin Hee was unable to move her arms freely, thus struggling to eat her meal. To help her out, Chang Min could be seen feeding her in an adorable manner.
The memories they wanted to forget and destroy after getting divorced slowly begun to change into moments that both of them wanted to restore
A still from the first kiss scene, although not a reciprocated kiss scene, was revealed by tvN’s “Emergency Couple” drama staff.

We have a new No. 1 this week!
“Some,” a duet between SISTAR’s Soyu and R&B artist Junggigo, jumps from No. 26 all the way to the top spot this week, overtaking our three-week champion Girl’s Day and their “Something.”
Soyu has become a favorite duet partner for male K-Pop artists as this is the third time she’s helping a relatively unknown male artist to get into the spotlight. In 2012, Soyu lent her vocal to Geeks’ “Officially Missing You, Too.” Last year, she had a No. 1 song “Stupid In Love” with Mad Clown. Now, four months later, she strikes again with this new No. 1 song “Some.” Geeks’ Lilboi returns the favor to be the featured rapper on this song
