“Running Man” Cast Jokes About What Lee Kwang Soo Should Do To Catch Up To Jung Hae In’s Rising Popularity
On the latest episode of “Running Man,” the cast members jokingly compared Lee Kwang Soo to fellow actor Jung Hae In.
During the April 29 broadcast of the SBS variety show, Yoo Jae Suk mentioned Lee Kwang Soo’s tvN drama “Live,” in which the actor is currently starring as a rookie policeman. Yoo Jae Suk complimented Lee Kwang Soo’s outfit and asked, “Isn’t this your costume from ‘Live’?”
He added, “But what’s regretful is that Jung Hae In is so popular these days.” As everyone agreed that Jung Hae In was enjoying a remarkable rise in popularity, Yoo Jae Suk went on, “‘Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food’ and Jung Hae In are all the rage nowadays.”
Yoo Jae Suk then jokingly complained, “Kwang Soo could be popular too!” Yang Se Chan chimed in, “[It’s because] he has no love lines. Writers, please give him a romance!”
Jun So Min agreed, “He really needs to have some kiss scenes,” while Yoo Jae Suk protested, “How come Kwang Soo is always suffering from unrequited love [in his dramas]?”
HaHa joked, “You should show people your own kiss scene on Instagram Live, since the writers won’t give you one on the other ‘Live.’”
Lee Kwang Soo remarked, “I think Jung Hae In and I are just walking two different paths.” Yoo Jae Suk replied, “It’s a good thing that you know that,” before teasingly adding, “Park Bo Gum and Jung Hae In have their own path, while Kwang Soo is walking my path.”
As Lee Kwang Soo insisted with a laugh that he was an actor and not a comedian, Yoo Jae Suk went on to joke, “You have no idea how proud you make me feel. I can’t believe that one of my junior comedians ended up being such a good actor.”
