Shin Jung-geun’s Running Man Appearance

After knowing Shin Jung-Geun’s movies and dramas, it’s time to get to know him through variety shows. The best TV show that lets its guests shine is Running Man.

Shin Jung-Geun appeared on Running Man for episodes 111 and 112. Episode 111 was aired on September 16, 2012, and episode 112 was aired on September 23, 2012. However, like most variety shows, Running Man is not a live show. The actual filming dates were on September 3, 2012, and September 4, 2012. Shin Jung-Geun was not the only guest on those episodes. He showed up together with Go Chang-Suk, Im Ha-Ryong, Lee Jong-Won, Son Byong-Ho, and Tae Yeon from Girls’ Generation.

On episode 111, Shin Jung-Geun teams up with Kim Jong-kook, Lee Kwang-soo, and Go Chang-suk to form the Red Team. In that episode, the landmark is the National Maritime Museum. From the very beginning, it is clear that Shin Jung-Geun is an interesting guest to see. In the car, while Jong Kook is explaining things to the guest, Shin Jung-Geun does not look excited at all. He even says, “Are you sure there isn’t going to be something brutal waiting for us? I don’t like amusement parks!” Funnily, later on, they do go to an amusement park. They do a roller-coaster karaoke mission, and when Shin Jung-Geun first sees it, he is so shocked. He even asks, “Is this possible? Shouldn’t we contact our physician first?” And when the production director answered him that it’s very possible, he exclaims that “Variety is like a challenge now!”

In addition, Shin Jung-Geun also hilariously strives for screen-time. During a mission where everyone is competing to see whose shoe can land on a spot, Shin Jung-Geun sings “Traitor Song” and yells, “Will I be on TV?” before kicking his shoe.

On episode 112, the landmark is Moorim P&P Paper Mill, and Shin Jung-Geun teams up with Ha Ha this time, forming the Red Team. The mission for this episode is a name tag elimination. In this episode, Shin Jung-Geun continuously shows his antics.
