'Running Man' is a South Korean variety show, which airs on SBS.

"Running Man" is so popular all over the world that South American fans sent a gift to congratulate its showrunners on its seventh anniversary. The South Korean variety show first aired on July 11, 2010 on SBS.

The "Running Man" seventh anniversary episode aired on July 23, Sunday. Prior to this, the fan club of the SBS show covering Argentina, El Salvador, Mexico and Peru sent 20 kilograms of rice to the showrunners, Yonhap News reported.

To thank the South American fans, "Running Man" main cast members Lee Kwang Soo, Yoo Jae Suk and Kim Jong Kook filmed the opening of the seventh anniversary episode in front of the rice gift. As part of the celebration, Lee, Yoo and Jae's fellow regular cast members Haha, Ji Suk Jin, Song Ji Hyo, Yang Se Chan and Jun So Min also brought their family members and friends onto the show.

Lee, Yoo, Ji, Yang and Haha invited Tae Hang Ho, Jo Se Ho, Kim Soo Yong, Apink member Son Naeun and Park Geun Shik, respectively. Jong Kook invited his older brother while Song and Jun invited their respective younger brothers.

Everyone was surprised with the great physique and looks of Jun's younger brother, who used to be a health trainer who won awards at body building competitions. Weeks before the "Running Man" seventh anniversary episode, Jun received praises from producing director Jung Chul Min.

Jung described Jun as an honest and innocent friend in an interview with OSEN. The director explained that he knew he had to cast actress if he could after shooting with her and he was glad to cast her along with Yang.

Jun has an easygoing charm and is always punctual, according to Jung. With all the praises he gave her, the director wants nothing but great things for the actress.

This year, Jun made cameo appearances in two TV series. She appeared in the first episode of "My Secret Romance" and in the fourth episode of "The Bride of the Water God."
