Things are heating up between Song Ji Hyo and Kim Jong Kook! The two Running Man cast members are involved in a “love line,” which is a public, scripted televised relationship typically seen on variety programs. As their “relationship” becomes more and more loved by viewers, Song Ji Hyo recently took things up a notch in a recent game.
On the most recent episode of Running Man, the members played the famous “image game” that has been played numerous times before. During one of the rounds, it was Song Ji Hyo’s turn to call out a random nickname in order to receive a response from the opposing team. During her turn, she yelled out “my boyfriend two,” which was said as an attempt to fluster Kim Jong Kook. And while she did successfully catch Kim Jong Kook off guard, he didn’t succumb to her clever gaming tactics and reluctantly answered her call.
Song Ji Hyo: “My boyfriend, two.”
Kim Jong Kook: “My boyfriend, my boyfriend.”
Naturally, this created a hilarious response from the other Running Man cast members. Yoo Jae Suk looked antsy, as he moved his body up and down in an effort to control his laughter, while the rest of the members burst out laughing!
After successfully defeating the pink team, Yoo Jae Suk jokingly commented that the “boyfriend” tactic only worked because of Lee Kwang Soo‘s absence. Prior to Kim Jong Kook, Lee Kwang Soo was the target of all of the Running Man jokes, but following his departure from the show, it seems that Kim Jong Kook has become the new “victim.”
This is only possible because Lee Kwang Soo left.
