Running Man Korean Variety Show
Running Man
Korean title: 런닝맨
SBS, 250+ episodes (and counting)
July 11, 2010 – present

Variety show led by national MC Yoo Jae-suk that began in 2010, featuring missions all over Seoul (and sometimes faraway towns and other countries), in which cast members and celebrity guests play games for prizes. The games almost always feature running, hence the title, and a version of a nametag-ripping game that can only be described as the most brutal version of tag ever.
