The Running Man episode aired in South Korea on May 30 is the first episode the cast of the variety programme filmed together after Lee Kwang-soo announced he’s leaving the show back in April.
According to an article by soompi.com, the episode has a scene where Running Man stars Yang Se-chan and Yoo Jae-suk call Lee up to put him on the spot, grilling him with questions about his decision.
Actress Song Ji-hyo, Kim Jong-kook and HaHa also get in on the act when Lee comes to location.
Kim, for example, points out that Lee’s face is unkempt.
Kim comments: “Did you grow out your facial hair to make it seem like you’re having a hard time because you’re stepping down from Running Man?”
When Lee made the announcement, he still had two more weeks of recording to complete.
He filmed his final episode of Running Man on May 24.
Lee stated that he’s leaving the show after 11 years to focus on recovering his health due to an injury he suffered from an accident.
He had been the core member of the show from the start.
