Fans of Running Man, brace yourselves for this piece of bad news: Gary announced today that he would be leaving the variety show.

Best known as one-half of Monday couple, alongside Song Jihyo, the rapper will be leaving “to pursue his career as a musician,” said the production director of the show.

We’re totally bummed by this news, but the show will proceed with the other cast, Yoo Jaesuk, Haha, Ji Sukjin, Kim Jongkook, Lee Kwangsoo and Jihyo.

Other regular cast members who have left the show include Song Joongki and After School’s Lizzy, both of whom left in 2011. They have since returned as guests on the show, so we reckon Gary might do the same.
