Running Man Episode 170 Recap By DramaBeans
Running Man EPISODE 170. Broadcast on November 3, 2013.
A cyclone descends on the land of Oz, leaving behind two bewildered visitors: co-stars of the spy movie Alumni, Kim Yoo-jung and TOP. I have a feeling you’re not at the Busan International Film Festival anymore.
Still, the My Sassy Girl tree is a familiar site, and when TOP asks if she recognizes it, he gives us our first corny joke of the day with the answer: “It’s a pine tree.” Lol.

Our cast is on a mission to clear in their names in this escape race that brings us more laughs than tears. They’ll need to use their smarts, strength, and their skills (sometimes lack thereof) to fight for their freedom. ‘Cause no one ever said that would be easy.

During the crazy excitement that was KCON, Soompi had the opportunity to sit down with drama blogging superstars girlfriday and javabeans, the lovely ladies behind Dramabeans!
We asked them some really, really hard questions (sorry about that!) but I think you’ll all enjoy their answers! Check out the full interview below.
Okay, first things first, what is your favorite show this season?
javabeans: Pshhhh…. long silence…
The moment Dal-goo steps out of Da-jung’s house with her stolen prize money, he gets a call from Woo-jin. He’s a nervous mess over the phone, especially since Woo-jin continues to ask questions that make him uncomfortable.
So while he tries to pass his nervousness off in order to get off the phone as quickly as possible, Woo-jin knows exactly what went down. That’s why Dal-goo finds him waiting outside his apartment door before he gets home.
Caught red-handed, Dal-goo has no choice but to try and defend his actions—in his mind, Da-jung is better off being indebted to the show than his boss. Woo-jin disagrees, and Dal-goo switches to blaming him for being the reason Da-jung is still playing the game in the first place.
Da-jung pulls the last card toward her, the one that will decide her fate… and it’s the misprint. Jaime wins the bet, and Da-jung loses one hundred fifty thousand dollars.
While Dal-goo distracts the mall guards with his intentionally bad driving, Woo-jin takes the opportunity to sneak inside and cut the power. PD Lee keeps calm in the midst of the blackout, completely unaware that Woo-jin has disguised himself as a Liar Game crew member. Ah ha.
Audition hall. After arriving to an empty auditorium, the judges receive word that there are students prepared to audition after all. Teacher Ahn is pleased at this sign that the boycott issue was resolved, while Teacher Do sniffs that an S Orchestra student is still going to fail, considering that judging will purely be based on ability.
Yoo-jin and Nae-il arrive just in time for the first solo, recognizing Il-lac immediately. While he plays, Il-lac’s mind is full of Nae-il’s earlier reminder of everything Yoo-jin had done for them. In this case, Yoo-jin’s actions speak louder than his words (in that he offered no words). As Yoo-jin watches anxiously, Nae-il reaches out and takes his hand in a reassuring gesture.
Yoo-jin’s mother hears that her ex-husband is on his way to see Yoo-jin’s performance. Knowing that Dad’s presence is bound to mess with Yoo-jin, she decides to prevent his attendance, no matter what.
With several hours till showtime, both Yoo-jin and Nae-il have dress rehearsals to attend. But when the gang drops by the dressing room to check on Nae-il, they find that she’s locked herself in the room and is refusing to perform.
After Yoo-jin’s failed hypnotherapy session, he happens upon his uncle talking to Nae-il, making mention of his airplane accident. Uncle had assumed Nae-il knew since she was aware of his water trauma, but Yoo-jin is upset to have his secret revealed and leaves the house, pulling Nae-il along with him.
But the truth is out and there’s no use pretending she doesn’t know. Yoo-jin tells her of the plane crash that landed him in the sea, giving him a two-for-one trauma deal that prevents him from taking planes and boats. “It’s absurd, isn’t it?” he asks bitterly. “Go ahead, laugh.”
We open on a chaotic scene as ministers of Joseon gather in protest outside the quarters of KING SEONJO (Lee Sung-jae), asking him to rescind his order to have the crown prince dethroned.
While the crown princess’ son is torn from her arms and attendants of the court are cut down in cold blood, PRINCE GWANGHAE (Seo In-gook) stands in front all the portraits of the kings who came before.
He focuses specifically on King Sejong’s portrait as he takes note of how his features were harmonious, signifying the peaceful era that would come about during his rule. “His is truly the face of a king,” Gwanghae thinks.
Fighting nerves, Nae-il stumbles onto the stage and sits at the piano for her first-round performance. Looking to Yoo-jin out in the audience calms her, and he thinks encouraging thoughts her way as she begins her competition piece.
She’s off to a good start, and Yoo-jin relaxes while the judges start nodding approvingly, noting that she’s the best so far. Teacher Do is pleased, too, recognizing that Nae-il is adding her own feeling into the performance: “Good,” he thinks. “Play just like that.”
Almost at the end! *Sniff* Finale week is upon us, and it definitely starts to feel like we’re heading into the final stretch as we prepare to say goodbye to these characters and take a look back at how far they’ve come.
The downside is that the feeling is a bit bittersweet, and I’ve come to love everyone so much that I’ll be sad to not have any more of them to watch. The happier flipside to that, though, is that we gear up for some major payoffs as the big threads come together, ready for their happy finale.
SONG OF THE DAY
While this episode is about the big sales pitch by Sales Team 3, the real stars of this episode are the newbies, who are slowly becoming a cohesive unit. Newbie huddles are becoming more regular, as more workplace shit hits the fan and as more achievements come and go. They find their way, still get lost, and get criticized, but at least now they know that they’re not the only ones.
EPISODE 13 RECAP
Min-ki strides into Hyun-suk’s dressing room and decks him, yelling, “I’m Yoon-hee’s brother and Min-ho’s uncle, you bastard!” when asked who he is. He gets in another good punch before Hyun-suk’s manager gets between them.
Back home in Hadurok-ri, Han-chul accidentally lets slip that Min-ho’s father was in town, fueling questions by Aunt and Uncle that Yoon-hee doesn’t want to answer. She’s saved from further inquiry by a phone call telling her that Min-ki was arrested in Seoul, and she runs out to get him. Hyuk tries to go with her but this time she tells him she needs to go alone.
Ki-joon rescues Bul-ja from the clutches of the drunk noraebang customer, but the man and his friend follow them outside and continue the fight. When he knocks Bul-ja to the ground, Ki-joon snaps and starts throwing punches, drawing the police. When a policeman asks to see Bul-ja’s ID, Ki-joon distracts them and yells for Bul-ja to run.
She does, but doesn’t get far in her high-heeled boots, and she trips and falls. A pair of shoes stop in front of her, and she looks up with an expression of abject terror on her face.
The air is tense as Sales Team 3 convenes to hear the recording of Geu-rae’s call with Assistant Manager Seok, the One International representative in China. Chief Oh calls Assistant Manager Seok to ensure that everything is going fine and that the recording of the call is erased. He asks Chief Chun and Dong-shik to leave the room to give Geu-rae a proper scolding and explanation. What he did may have just put their team in more danger.
In the meeting room, Chief Oh says that Assistant Manager Seok isn’t in a position to formally take responsibility for his information. Now with Geu-rae voicing suspicions about their contract with Poshin, he may feel anxious and take unwanted action against them. There is also no evidence or grounding for Geu-rae’s assumptions on the executive director’s kickback. This issue will only get larger, and if it’s revealed that the executive director isn’t involved in shady business, Geu-rae and the team are in some deep shit.
We start off this Christmas special by introducing our three guests who are here to promote their upcoming film How to Steal a Dog: actress Kang Hye-jung, Chunderella—… I mean, Lee Chun-hee and Korea’s “Mother” Kim Hye-ja.
We’ve seen Chun-hee here on this show before, although this would be a rare, if not first variety appearance for Hye-ja. If the preview clips are any indication, she ought to be a hoot and game for anything. Always a good indication in my book.
