Sad news for Running Man fans. SBS producers have confirmed that, South Korean rapper and LeeSsang member, Gary, will be officially leaving the show. Running Man has had phenomenal success throughout Asia since it first aired in 2010. After 6 years, original member, Gary will be departing from his notable role on the show. Many know him as one half of the “Monday couple” and “squid (오징어).” According to the Running Man producers, Gary had expressed interest in leaving the show since the beginning of the year due to his interest in focusing more on his music. The producers expressed their gratitude towards Gary’s involvement in the show by stating, “We would like to thank Gary for putting all his effort into the Running Man for last seven years. As Gary said that he would like to live a life as a musician rather than an entertainer, we wish him to entertain people with good music in the future.”
Gary will surely be missed, but it’s nice to know that he will still be active in the celebrity world through his music.
