Song Ji Hyo and Kim Jong Kook confirmed to leave ‘Running Man’!

It has just been confirmed that Song Ji Hyo and Kim Jong Kook will leave "Running Man". The exact date of their departure is not yet disclosed but it is expected to happen anytime soon. And it looks like their spot in the show will be quickly replaced as Park Myung Soo is rumored to be a host in the show in the near future.

As the show announce the departure of Ji Hyo and Jong Kook, "Running Man" also announced a good news. Kang Ho Dong will be joining the show as one of the hosts. And now rumors of Myung Soo joining the show are circulating online which actually makes sense since two members are leaving so it's just right if two new members will join the cast.

Comedian Myun Soo representative has recently addressed the issue and said they have not received any official offers from "Running Man" or had any talks about the possibility. The rumors started when Myung Soo appeared as a guest on the show which quickly became a viral topic on the internet.  Meanwhile,  the show "Running Man" has not denied nor confirmed this rumor so some fans are hoping they will consider him as a host.

As for Song Ji Hyo and Kim Jong Kook, both stars have decided to leave the show for their own reason. Ji Hyo is reported to be overwhelmed with work as an actress and as a host of "Running Man". She has decided to focus on her career as an actress first so she has no choice but to leave the show. For Jong Kook, his representative, Maroo Entertainment, has also confirmed his decision to leave the show but did not mention the reason.

The exact date of their departure is not yet announced. It looks like they still need to adjust it while the show looks for a replacement.
