Kang Daniel’s first appearance in Running Man was in Episode 374. At that time, Kang was still a member of Wanna One. He appeared on the show with other guests, such as Ha Yeon-soo, Jo Se-ho, and Noh Sa-yeon.

When the regular hosts announced the guests, Kang was announced at the last. At that time, one of the regular hosts Song Ji-hyo was very surprised. She never thought that Kang became the guest star for that episode.

Here, Daniel was asked to perform one of Wanna One’s songs. Other hosts, especially Lee Kwang-soo, imitated Kang’s dance in a humorous and narcissistic way. He was also given the opportunity to choose three members to form a gang called Mung-gol Gang. The three members were Song Ji-hyo, Jeon So-min, and Jo Se-ho. The gang was given a mission to obtain the running balls by opening the other team’s safebox.

Here are some photos of Kang Daniel when shooting the episode.

At that time, Kang had a chance to promote his soon-released mini album titled Cyan, which was released two days later on March 24, 2020.

In that episode, Kang was the member of a team led by Hwang Young-hee. To become the team winner, the team had to have the lightest long rice cake at the beginning of the race, without having the heaviest long rice cake at the end of the race. During the race, Kang Daniel was heavily tempted by the teams’ rice cakes, so he ate those rice cakes! Kang and his team lost the game, and they didn’t win any prizes.

Here are some scenes from the episode.
