Running Man: Episode 192
by | April 11, 2014 | 60 Comments

Get ready for a cross-country race where seven different teams will travel by bus, train, or plane to the southernmost part of Korea. Sure it’s totally hectic when you’ve got fourteen people all trying to catch a minute of airtime, with new and old faces alike. But when you wonder who will having you rolling on the ground laughing all night, the answer may just surprise you.

EPISODE 192. Broadcast on April 6, 2014.

We kick off today’s episode at the SBS building, where Jong-kook affirms that he already had breakfast this morning (at 4AM, of course). Each cast member will be teamed up with one of our guests, and the boys take a moment to remark on Gary’s luck with the ladies (“He got to go visit a women’s university!”) whereas Kwang-soo isn’t as lucky.

That segues into introducing today’s guests: first up is actor Im Joo-hwan (Watch Out for Fools), who momentarily backs away from his teammate Kwang-soo; actress Kim Jung-nan (Thrice Married Woman), who’s looking sorta matchy with Suk-jin; Oh Man-seok (King’s Family), who’s also looking matchy with Haha.

Then there’s Kim Min-jong (A Gentleman’s Dignity), who we haven’t seen on this show since its first Christmas special. And it looks like luck is on Gary’s side today again, as he’s teamed up with national speed skater Lee Sang-hwa.

Everyone is so excited to meet the two-time Olympian that ZE:A’s Kim Dong-joon‘s entrance nearly goes unnoticed; he’ll be paired with yet-to-arrive Ji-hyo.

As they wait, Haha comments that Gary is well-suited for women who like gold—Sang-hwa has two Olympic gold medals to her name while Ji-hyo probably has a whole room dedicated to her amassed golden prizes.

Goodness, poor Ji-hyo looks as haggard and exhausted as can be, though she’s alert enough to recognize Dong-joon (they were both in Mandate of Heaven). Last but not least, Jae-suk’s mysterious teammate will join in later today.

With seven teams to keep track of, I can already tell that today’s Sensibility Camping Race will be a hectic one. After choosing different means of transportation and picking up monetary allowances for the day, our teams hurry to make their flights/trains/buses.

Arriving first to their destination will mean a huge advantage, and the last-place team could face punishment.

Jae-suk calls his teammate to let him know when and where to meet. Though he’s momentarily thrown off when the mystery guest answers in (limited) English, he then recognizes the man’s laughter, and exclaims: “This guy is a bit of a show-off.”

As the teams depart, Kwang-soo toots to Haha that they’re all in this together. It’s only when they’re gone however does Kwang-soo remind his teammate that it’s each team for itself, to which Joo-hwan realizes, “Ah, this is how you betray people.”

In the taxi, Gary says he saw all of Sang-hwa’s meets, which he recalls in detail. Aw. She shares about the pressures of defending her Olympic gold at Sochi and her teammates’ discouragement at having to go home without a medal.

It’s pretty heartwarming to see Sang-hwa open up to Gary about the surmounting stress and rigorous training as an athlete, and then equally touching to see how empathetic Gary is to those experiences. When it looks like the traffic might hold them up, Gary uplifts the mood by joking that they’ll take any train and stand if they have to.

We finally get to meet Jae-suk’s teammate at the train station—none other than actor Ryu Seung-soo (Wonderful Season), who asks two very important questions: “Do they feed us?” “Where are we going?” I like how you think, sir.

Even though we’ve got a seemingly random group of guests this time around, it’s nice to see that our pairings generally get along. Like how Ji-hyo skips around with Dong-joon and how Gary and Sang-hwa have already bonded.

It turns out that Seung-soo used to be Ji-hyo’s acting teacher, and she gripes to Jae-suk: “You said [your teammate] was Jeon Ji-hyun!”

Since flying is the fastest route, our two teams at the airport (Jong-kook and Min-jong vs. Suk-jin and Jung-nan) are given a harder mission. If that weren’t enough, the losing team will have to wait for the afternoon flight.

With little time to spare, the teams hurry to face off in a round of trashcan curling and neither team succeed on their first try.

Meanwhile, the two teams at the bus station eat up. Haha and Man-seok are the poorest out of everyone, but they remain optimistic. Haha: “Instead, we’ve got manners, love, faith, and sharing.” Man-seok chimes in: “We’ve got a bag full of ‘em!”

The hyungs’ friendliness comes at a price however, and soon Man-seok and Haha suggest that they play a game where the losers foot the bill. They play a consonant game, which lasts all of ten seconds before the hyungs swoop in to win it, leaving Kwang-soo and Joo-hwan flummoxed.

They go for another round, but Joo-hwan is one step too late and the hyungs win again. Man-seok and Haha praise each other on their synchronous teamwork, but the captions points to some mischief afoot…

Sure enough, a flashback to half an hour earlier shows us that Haha and Man-seok had planned to fool the dongsaengs all along, with the intention to use Joo-hwan’s tendency to get flustered to their advantage.

I never knew that Oh Man-seok could be just as devious as Haha, who teaches his teammate three necessary tactics to survive: vulgarity, underhandedness, and wickedness. These two make an unlikely but hilariously conniving duo already, and it is AWESOME.

It doesn’t look like either of the two airport teams are going to make that morning flight, which defeats the whole point of using the fastest method of transportation. Everyone is in a good mood over on the train, where they’re chatting about Seung-soo’s legendary history as an acting teacher.

It seems Seung-soo has taught a number of now-famous faces over the years. His most famous former student: Jo In-sung. Dang.

Apparently Seung-soo used to run an acting cram school (and for all we know it could still be running today) and was extremely lenient on collecting fees because of his affection for his students, including Jo In-sung.

Seung-soo is even famous among the other actors for his teaching methods, and acts humble at the compliment as an acting “godfather” of sorts… that is, until Jae-suk totally calls him out for boasting about himself earlier off-camera. Ha.

Evidently the cameras did capture the “I’m the best teacher” moment, and in the present, Seung-soo talks about having a certain look in one’s eyes to be an actor. When Sang-hwa asks about herself, he replies, “They’re nice and deep.”

Jae-suk asks who gives Seung-soo acting tips then, to which Seung-soo answers, “My teachers are suffering and endurance…” Jae-suk: “Suffering? You ate a hamburger by yourself earlier!” HA.

Nearly everything Seung-soo says or does is unintentionally funny since he plays everything straight and ought to be a riot today based upon our train ride thus far. Lastly, we learn that Sang-hwa listens to Leessang before her meets, which might explain why the two got so friendly so quickly.

Our two bus teams’ eyes widen at their ticketed destination: Haenam, which is in the southernmost tip of Korea. They’ve got a food mission to keep them busy on their five-hour journey: roll a die at the rest-stop, eat all the food, and return to the bus within fifteen minutes.

Now they regret having that early lunch, and make sure to prepare themselves in the event they don’t back it back.

The three teams on the train are informed of a mission at their next layover as well, and Seung-soo asks, “Can’t we just go [to our destination]?” He adds that this is the first “strenuous” variety he’s ever appeared in… he says while sitting on a train, stirring his drink.

Only two teams will have to participate, so they play the noonchi game (the objective is to not be the last person to shout a number). Seung-soo calls out “One!” right away and is so happy when Jae-suk loses, and has to be reminded that they’re a team. HEE.

Both Sang-hwa and Seung-soo literally draw the short straw (meaning their teams will be getting off the train), and because Seung-soo isn’t certain that they’ll make it back in time, he asks for a quick photo with Sang-hwa. Hahahaha, you were born for variety, sir.

As soon as they pull in, the two teams jump off to roll the die that determines whether they get back on or not. Jae-suk and Seung-soo get back on the train, but Gary and Sang-hwa aren’t as lucky. Ha, I totally missed that classic moment when the losers send off the gleeful winners with bittersweet smiles.

Jae-suk checks in with the airport teams and is surprised to see Lee Hyo-ri (who just happened to be flying out today). He beams to hear that they haven’t even left Seoul yet.

The bus pulls in for its scheduled rest-stop, and our bus teams hurry through a call from Jae-suk in order to start their mission. Both teams rush inside to make their orders and scarf down on their scalding food.

Kwang-soo and Joo-hwan are first to finish their food, and they rush back out… only that the bus is nowhere to be found. Oh no, did they miss it?! No it’s much worse—there are a number of similarly colored buses. Time to find the right one!

Joo-hwan finds their bus parked at the far end of the lot, and the other pair luckily sees him running in that direction. Kwang-soo and Joo-hwan make it back, but with less than a minute remaining, will Haha and Man-seok get back in time?

Our two remaining train teams (Ji-hyo, Dong-joon, Jae-suk, and Seung-soo) run to the bus terminal to complete yet another randomized mission. Ji-hyo and Dong-joon are tasked to eat spicy food without water.

Jae-suk is more than happy to hear that Ji-hyo’s spice tolerance is pretty low, and taunts them by drinking some water before they start. Ha, so evil.

The burning sensations hits them both belatedly, but Dong-joon takes one for the team to eat another mouthful. Then Jae-suk looks to Seung-soo: “That’s what a loyalty game looks like.”

Jae-suk continues to tempt them anyway (and get splashed by Ji-hyo for his efforts), but Ji-hyo and Dong-joon end up failing the task once time is up. Jae-suk and Seung-soo are tasked to balance a flag on their palms.

Seung-soo is surprisingly good but Ji-hyo returns the interference favor in kind until it works. That leaves Jae-suk to balance the flag for at least another two minutes, but he lasts a good nine seconds.

Whoa, Gary and Sang-hwa show up a minute later, able to catch up quickly thanks to a very timely bus. Ji-hyo earnestly prays that she doesn’t have to end up eating more spicy food… but lands on that number anyway. She kicks the die, furious.

A gracious re-roll requires Ji-hyo and Dong-joon to submerge their faces underwater for a total of three minutes instead. Dong-joon is confident about his lung capacity, but Ji-hyo screams in disbelief, “You said you could eat spicy foods too!”

He takes a few deep breaths to practice, and then holds onto the bowl, dizzy. Aww. Giving him a shot anyway, Ji-hyo warns him to keep to his word. In he goes… and then pops right back out again. Lol.

So Ji-hyo has to make up for the rest, and lasts a good minute and a half when Gary quips, “You’ve gotten a lot better since you’ve quit smoking and drinking.” Now you’re just trying to make her laugh on purpose!

It works, and even though Ji-hyo’s 1:52 record is impressive, it isn’t enough. As for Haha and Man-seok, we see them make it back to the bus after all.

Jae-suk and Seung-soo have the unfortunate mission to sit atop a traffic cone, a feat older Running Man fans will recall from three years ago. Seung-soo tries it out first and the pain is immediate. He exclaims, “There’s no room [to sit] on this thing!”

He grits through the pain and lasts 26 seconds, and then rubs(?) his butt on the ground in a swinging motion. There… is just no other way to write that, and I’m sure he’s in pain, but does it look a little wrong to anyone else?

Jae-suk steps in to make up the time, but he howls in pain and falls over shortly thereafter. And then Seung-soo manually swings Jae-suk’s hips for him: “Massage [your butt]!” HAHAHA.

Gary and Sang-hwa must hold a challenging balancing position together, where it looks like the guy is holding up the girl (she’s kneeling) on his forearms. Concerned, Gary whispers to the staff: “She’s an athlete…” and then jokes aloud, “… so I should be the one climbing up!”

Sang-hwa kicks him for that remark, and when he crumbles on their first attempt (he blames himself), she warns, “Don’t you dare collapse!”

So Gary gives it his hall, but doesn’t have enough upper body strength to pull her up. Can’t say I blame the guy when that pose looks impossibly difficult.

Dong-joon rolls another six aka the Spicy Food From Hell, and Ji-hyo bursts in anger. Another re-roll leaves them with the aforementioned balancing couple pose, and before Ji-hyo even climbs up, she says that Dong-joon is being overly ambitious about his abilities again.

Dong-joon lifts her up anyway, and then Ji-hyo laughs, “He’s shaking.” Hee. The hyungs taunt Kim Ambition aka Dong-joon’s new variety nickname, trying to make him laugh and/or screw up for the sake of variety. He holds out for the allotted time, and smiles brightly afterwards: “I won’t be able to use my arms anymore!”

That puts Ji-hyo and Dong-joon in the lead and they gape to think that they’re headed off to Haenam.

Meanwhile, Seung-soo actually bears through the full two minutes of sitting on the traffic cone on his own, to everyone’s amazement. He totally looks while on the traffic cone, only to collapse moments later.

When they “massage” his butt, they find something else lodged in there: a water bottle. AHAHAHAHA. Omg dying of laughter right now.

Watching how it was done makes the moment that much funnier, and Seung-soo yelps, “But it still hurts!” Puhahaha.

Jong-kook and Min-jong joins them two seconds too late, both perplexed. Jae-suk devilishly says it’ll be GREAT if they land a six (because Jong-kook can’t handle spicy foods). Sure enough, they do.

The others worry that it’s too spicy for them, which is true of Jong-kook, but then Min-jong comments with his mouth full of ddukbokki: “It’s too hard.” HA.

But even though Min-jong doesn’t admit from his own mouth that it’s flaming hot, his face turns bright red anyway. They both whistle within the time limit and bear the pain for another minute to succeed.

When Seung-soo is back on the traffic cone, the others make sure that he’s not conning them this time, especially when he strikes that same peaceful expression as before. He gets through to the end before half-falling/half-flying off, and they run to make their bus.

After a length nap, our two bus teams arrive at Haenam. Here, they must give twenty autographs in order to move on. Kwang-soo and Joo-hwan finish up first and catch an earlier bus, which Haha and Man-seok miss by seconds.

That choice comes back to bite them though, because they find out that it’s a local bus, and it’ll take fifty minutes to get to the beach. Yikes.

All seven teams are headed to the beach, and now it’s just a matter of who gets there first. It’s Kwang-soo and Joo-hwan who arrives first, and they’re tasked to bring a local with them to the camping grounds.

Though we see the others arrive in quick succession, it’s Kwang-soo and Joo-hwan who come out victorious and get to spend the night in a camping car. Niiiice.

It’s raining by now, but Ji-hyo and Dong-joon are grateful to see that second place earns them a decent teepee. The housing arrangements get progressively worse and last place Jae-suk and Seung-soo will spend this rainy night in a small tent.

We pick back up at night as everyone gets ready for bed, and all I’m thinking is that the sleeping arrangements aren’t half as bad as what the 1N2D cast has had to put up with before. Aww, all the girls get to sleep in the fancy teepee together.

Gary seems pretty satisfied with the smaller teepee, and curls into his sleeping bag, tossing out questions about life and love with Dong-joon. Gary: “Love doesn’t have an answer. Love is the answer to love.”

Having heard the music playing, Ji-hyo drops by to ask about the song. Gary answers, “A theme for you?” Aw. Ji-hyo excitedly declares that they should go camping all the time, and we hear Gary call out, “Ji-hyo, don’t say that.”

In another tent, we see Haha and Man-seok downing shot after shot of water, exchanging notes like “love” and “memories” to munch on. Quite the imagination with these two.

But all of these lovely memories of this camping trip will soon fade next week when the teams are pitted against each other. It’ll be an epic Mafia game of the ages, and no one is safe from suspicion.

    • 3.2 NewFan

      I replayed that part so many times! Easily the funniest part of the whole episode. I was disappointed that the plane team barely got any airtime, though.

    • 3.3 Fidelity

      Ryu Seung-soo… he was a hilarious guest on Happy Together as well; Yoo Jae-Suk described him as feather-light, brazen, and extremely talkative. He’s perfect for variety shows!

       (3)


      • 3.3.1 Gwen

        Oh yes that Happy Together episode is hilarious. Highly recommend to watch. It has english subs as well, officially from KBS. Go to youtube and watch. It’s the “Wonderful Days” episode.

    I loved this episode! So many belly laughs. Seung-soo was hilarious with his comments and cheating. I also loved the Monday couple moment in the end. I don’t know how Ji Hyo didn’t turn into a puddle after Gary’s comment. 😂

  6. ajewell

    This was one of the funniest episodes in a long time. It had me rolling from beginning to end, and now I’ll never be able to see another cone-challenge without remembering the water bottle scandal, lol.

  7. Lilian

    lol…Ryu Seung Soo is super funny…..He should get more love! I like him in Wonderful Season =) And it was pretty smart of Haha and Man Seok to trick Kwang Soo’s team into paying for them.

      Are you Asian? If not, the food might be spicier than you think, because Asian food is really spicy…

    Idols usually try too hard but Dong Jun is such a cutie! :)

    Im Joo Hwan is pretty as can be (did you guys see Tamra the Island!!!) but he’s rather bland on variety. :(

    • 9.1 insungli

      I haven’t seen Im Joo Hwan on other variety shows but I was expecting to see more of him and gwang soo since it was mentioned that they were close. Such a shame even being in the same team with gwang soo I can barely feel his presence much like suk jins partner. The bus team and plane team didn’t get much airtime but not complaining since the 3 train team was really hilarious I haven’t laugh so hard in a long time watching RM. This is definitely one of my favorite episodes.

  10. 10 Love Silents

    This was a really good show, lots of fun and action! Great guests

    Has everyone (the cast and guests) met already behind the scenes? They always act like it’s their first meeting but …

    Best couple: Jae-suk and Seung-soo what a hoot! They should invite him back (or make him a full timer), so funny and so comfortable with everyone.

    So glad to see Kwang-soo NOT missing the bus or failing the mission at the rest stop. And winning the best sleeping spot. Now that’s a nice change.

    Poor Jung-nan didn’t seem to get any air time –

    I LOVED how JiHyo had the cameras turned off because of the elderly people on the bus – so respectful

    The end seemed a little rushed , so much was edited out. I thought they were going to have a competion with the locals

    Question: Can anyone tell me why the Running Men wear hats, jackets, or shirts that have logos with duct tape covering it? On an old show they all had the same jacket with the word “PONY” printed on it but it was digitally blurred out.(but what is funny is that it wasn’t always blurred out and could be clearly read) I don’t get it. I know they all have their own wardrobe people. Why not wear something else if you don’t want to give a company free advertising? 2D1N did the same thing…

    cheers all!

    • 10.1 Coolsmurf

      No blatant advertising or they get fined

       (0)


    • 10.2 j18

      There is a law that prohibits broadcasting companies from revealing the name of the brand unless it is a paid advertisement and/or sponsored.
      There is also a limit on the number of products allowed to be shown (note: I’m talking about products used in a show or a drama).
      TV stations are not also allowed to reveal the name of an establishment. Unless they sponsored the show or paid a certain amount of money. But there are instances when broadcasting companies reveal the name of an establishment (publicly-owned places or government-funded establishments).

       (3)


      • 10.2.1 Love Silents

        Oh thanks! But why wear it at all when there are so many choices for hats and shirts? I don’t understand that part of it. Good info though!

         (0)


    • 10.3 carrie

      maybe because their hoping that companies will pay for the advertising?

    OMG! Dong Joon is that assassin in Mandate of Heaven? why i not realize when i watch that? when i saw him i just thinking ‘this guy sure look like Han Ga In male version’. i always watch him in Let’s Go Dream Team but it’s never come to my mind that’s was him in MoH until gummimochi mention here.

  16. 16 jae

    Gotta say that this episode is one of those eps when I didnt need to FF… The scenarios, set ups and mini role playing games as I understand are to bring variety to variety but honestly just the raw interaction with the guests and between the casts is completely adorable and naturally funny. Maybe they should do more of these 1d2n format in RM?

    And Ryu Seung Soo.. I am such a fan didnt know he was as funny as that I pray to the drama gods that he and Park JiSung would be a permanent member of the family..wishful thinking I know.. but still that would be awefreakingsome..

  17. 17 rezberry

    This episode is no joke! I laughed as soon as when Kookie jokes about his 4am-breakfast! And Ryu Seung-soo really made up my day, for the water-bottle-and-cone-scandal, LOL.. That’s you should called “talent”, his so good in variety show. Thank you Ryu Seung-soo (and water-bottle-cone-scandal).. And I think, slowly but sure we’re getting in the first place, the show which can make you laugh till die (okay, I was kidding)
    I love you Running Man!

    I can’t even…this episode was just awesome from beginning to end. I honestly can’t remember the last time I laughed this hard. I could list my favorite moments but that list would be, like, 50 bullet-points long. Suffice it to say, I LOVED this episode and will watch it again and again.

    I love it when Gary loses it and hits the floor laughing. Remember episode 103 with “Tuna Noona”? I’d seen the gold medalist on a recent “Infinity Challenge” episode; she seems to be enjoying her variety appearances. Thanks for recap…great episode.

    To add on, I was actually surprised Gary couldn’t lift his partner up in that position. Personally, I think he has lost of lot of weight (and muscle). Miss his square face!

    Ryu Seung Soo.. I’m so speechless
    I can’t believe a guy with such serious expression could be so hilarious. Come back to RM soon please..

    ‘What number 6! I can’t see it!’ Boom! The dice gets kicked away.

    So loved this episode. I cringe every time I see the hot food eating missions. My stomach does a complete flip-flop! Not for me. :-)

    There was enough variety of insanity throughout all the missions. So proud of Dong Joon stepping up and fulfilling the mission. I was rather surprised at how long Ace was able to hold out on the water tank. Not bad. Now that her drama has ended, hopefully, Ji Hyo will be able to catch a break and get more rest. Looking forward to the second installment.

    For some reason I had a feeling going by plane was not necessarily going to be that big of a benefit. Turns out that was the case.

  32. 32 Greentea

    Dramabeans,

    Unrelated, but…Any future prospect of recapping 2D1N? I miss your recaps on it. I understand you stopped recapping midway Season 2 because it was losing it spark, but I wish there were recaps for S3– the riot is back.

  33. 33 onyxx

    this has got to be the best episode i’ve watched so far this year (hopefully, the momentum will keep on going). so many random (and contrived) factors worked out surprisingly well — and kept me giggling every now and then.

    great pairings. hilarious fumbles. and the sneaky deviousness of some of the players (LKS, ha-ha, YJS, and their respective partners) really “spiced up” this episode for me.

    looking forward to more cunning schemes and underhanded ploys (=laughter) in the next episode. :D

    I’m glad the editing is back to good standard. The various teams have a more fair distribution of screentime. We get to see really funny moments and soundbites from almost everyone. The editing finally makes sense and I finally don’t feel lost at some points unlike some other episodes where I would go WTF sometimes.

    Each segment didn’t drag on for too long and changed to the other team just as I was wondering how they are. Not just 1 or 2 people dominating the screentime. Good. The episodes in the 170s-180s have more misses than hits. I hope we’re out of that funk, it almost made me drop RM, I’m only watching because I love the cast. This is one good quality and enjoyable episode.

    I was expecting that guy to pull out cardboard from his pants. Never would I imagine he would manage to stuff a water bottle into his a** crack. I was laughing like mad when they showed the water bottle.

    This is a classic ep and Ryu Seung-soo will go down as one of the all time great RM guests (Oh Man-seok was good, too).

    The games were fun/entertaining and allowed for the cast/guests to fool around w/ each other and it’s always a good time when there is downtime/travel time and YJS can do his thing (even better when he had RSS to play off of).

    The thing about younger guests like Joo-hwan and Dong-joon is that they tend to be too quiet/timid, esp. around their elders – but that’s not always the case as seen by Han Hyo-joo, albeit she is an entertainment veteran at her relatively young age, but so is Joo-hwan.

    Always great when we see “Bad Ji-hyo” appear and bumping into Hyori was a nice surprise (about time she came back as a guest).

    Ji-hyo and Dong-joon really didn’t do that couples pose correctly as Ji-hyo was supporting much of her weight on Dong-joon’s shoulders.

    Somehow, YJS seems to always get stuck w/ the worst sleeping accomodations – kinda like on FO – speaking of which, the next ep seems a lot like FO.

    Very nostalgic and has early episode feel. Jihyo teacher really has variety witt, basically anything he say is funny. Dongjoon remind me with Joongki and Angry Jihyo + mermaid Jihyo ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Dongjoon in MoH is really hateful and someone mention he looks like Ga In, my exact first impression of him
    Great episode!
