Uhm Ji-won in Running Man


During episode 128 of Running Man, the actress Uhm Ji-won was involved in a funny battle with one of Running Man‘s members, Yoo Jae-suk. She tried to get out of a tight spot by threatening to target Yoo Jae Suk’s, er, masculinity.

The final race involved a mission to secure as many chairs as possible. Since there were fewer chairs than the total number of cast members, fights inevitably broke out over which player would be able to take the chair for himself or herself.

During a particularly intense battle that unfolded between Uhm Ji-won, Yoo Jae Suk, and others, the actress shed her usual sweet personality by threatening, “I’ll kick you in the central area! My foot is pointing directly there. I’ll just kick it.”

Despite this half-joking, half-realistic threat, the eventual winner of this coveted chair was Song Ji-hyo as usual.


Watch her full appearance in episode 128 of Running Man, which was aired in January 2013.
