As SBS “Running Man” aired the “Asian Race” special over the past two weeks, Lee Kwang Soo gained incredible popularity. He was welcomed warmly everywhere he went, more than the other members of ‘Running Man’.
The producer of ‘Running Man’ Cho Hyo Jin commented, “I wrote this in the subtitles of the show too, but I really don’t understand why or how he is so popular. I’m guessing it’s because he’s become so much funnier recently. According to Yoo Jae Suk, ‘the god of variety shows help Kwang Soo.’ It’s rather mysterious how he became so popular.”
Cho Hyo Jin also said that even though Kwang Soo seemed to be more popular than usual on the show, all of the ‘Running Man’ members were evenly welcomed. She emphasized Kwang Soo’s unexpected popularity once again, “The way people were calling for his name was so powerful. It won’t be a hyperbole to compare his popularity to that of Jang Dong Gun.”
The producer also commented on Kwang Soo’s reaction. She said, “He was really happy to see everyone so excited to see him. But it was more in the embarrassed way than the arrogant one.”
Meanwhile, ‘Running Man’ had the “Asian Race” in Macao and around major landmarks in Vietnam. On February 10th, the prequel of “The Secrets of Nine Swords” will be aired.
