Singer Kim Jong Kook has issued a public invitation to Chinese actress Tang Wei for a guest spot in the SBS Sunday variety “Running Man,” in which he is known to be the most competitive cast member. Kim Jong Kook, along with the other “Running Man” cast members Ji Suk Jin, Gary and HaHa were in Hong Kong on July 13 for the “Race Start! Running Man” fan meeting.

In an interview with local media, he was reported to have said, “Tang Wei, I would like to invite you as a guest on ‘Running Man.’”
