When he was still a very young actor, Lee Hyun-woo won the hearts of many of his fans, and they rejoiced when Lee Hyun-woo got the chance to appear in a Running Man episode.
Well, let’s take a look at Lee Hyun-woo hilarious appearances in these episodes of Running Man:
Running Man Episode 147
This episode was aired on SBS on May 26, 2013. The theme for this episode was Flower Boy, an athletic competition that required more than a beautiful face and killer smile. Of course with this theme, Running Man invited the real ‘flower boy’ actors to be guests for the episode. They were Lee Hyun-woo and Kim Soo-hyun. It would be a challenge not to laugh out loud at their antics in this episode.
The cast and the guests had pick up numbered cards to decide which team they’d be on, with the result that they were divided in three groups. The Blue group (Jae-suk, Kwang-soo, and Soo-hyun), the Green Group (Monday Couple and Suk-jin), and the Red group (Jong-kook, Haha, and Hyun-woo). Each group started the competition wearing eccentric athletic suits that matched the color of their group, with a flower pattern on the front.
The first challenge was located at a soccer field. At first, seeing the obstacle was pretty normal, they thought they’d just have to jump in and jump there. Then they found out the track was really something — it was the prickly floor! As the other cast members were trying to finish the challenge, Lee Hyun-woo acted so adorably. When his feet touched the prickly floor, he suddenly yelled at Kim Soo-hyun, “Hyung, this hurts!”. However, he still ran down the track with his killer smile and, sadly, tumbled to the ground. The first challenge won by the red team, hurray!
The second challenge was at a swimming pool. It seemed like it was a good day for dip in the water. This time, the representatives of each team would face off in a mukjippa battle (a tweaked version of rock-paper-scissors which ends when your opponent copies the same move as yours). If the representative lost, the team would end up in the water.
