Running Man will be welcoming new family members! According to various reports, Yang Se Chan and Jeon So Min joined the other members during the April 3 filming as permanent casts for the Korean variety show.
Yang Se Chan is a comedian who won the Excellence Comedy Award at the 2008 SBS Entertainment Awards, and was nominated for Male Rookie Award in Variety Show at last year’s MBC Entertainment Award after his appearance for the special episode of We Got Married during the Chuseok period. He is also the brother of comedian Yang Se Hyung.
Jeon So Min, on the other hand, is no new face to Running Man, having appeared as a guest on the show twice. During the actress’ first appearance on the show, she was paired with Lee Kwang Soo. Viewers might remember her as the actress who kept going sideways whenever she was doing a forward-roll, and eventually took the fall for Kwang Soo by plunging into the water.
With So Min joining the cast, Song Ji Hyo will no longer be the token female since Lizzy’s departure in 2011. We’re excited to see how this will change the dynamics of the group. And judging from her straightforwardness during her second appearance, we reckon she might bring something new to the table.
What we’d hate? A love line. Because why introduce a love line when the show can do without? (Also, because our hearts are with the Monday couple.)
Running Man airs every Friday night at 11pm on ONE. ONE is available on Singtel TV Ch 513 & 604, StarHub TV Ch 124, 820 & 823.
