Lee Kwang Soo Fails ‘Running Man’ Mission, Sets New Record For SBS Variety Show
Lee Kwang Soo is known as one of the unluckiest cast members in "Running Man." In the SBS variety show's latest episode, the actor's unlucky fate in games contributed to his failure in completing a mission.
The recent "Running Man" episode featured a secret mission between Lee and Yoo Jae Suk that involved a stealth thief challenge. Aired on Feb. 12, Sunday, the two South Korean celebrities were tasked to get their fellow cast members' clothes without being discovered.
Yoo was able to complete the mission and stole Song Ji Hyo's clothes. However, Lee was immediately discovered by Kim Jong Kook when he tried to get the singer's clothes.
The situation surprised the SBS variety show's production team since they did not expect Lee's secret thief identity to be revealed within an hour after they started filming the said episode. Despite the quick discovery of Lee's mission, the "Entourage" actor achieved a "Running Man" milestone and became the cast member whose spy identity was unveiled at the fastest time possible, according to Soompi.
Apart from being unlucky, Lee also has several titles in "Running Man." Dubbed as giraffe due to his height and lanky figure, the actor is also known to betray his fellow cast members during games or name tag ripping challenges.
Meanwhile, other highlights of the said episode included the guest appearance of the Kpop girl group Red Velvet. Members of the said group joined cast members for a quick appearance during the episode's second mission.
In other news, "Running Man" cast members recently traveled to Taiwan for the first tour stop of their 2017 Asian fan meeting. Lee, Kim, Song, Ji Suk Jin and Haha delighted local fans when they performed hits from Big Bang and Twice, Korea Herald reported.
The five South Korean celebrities even dressed up as Kpop idol stars. Former "Running Man" cast member Gary also performed during the said event as a special guest, while Yoo was unable to join the fan meeting due to a conflict in schedule.
