Since becoming members of Running Man, Song Ji-hyo and Kang Gary are known as the Monday Couple. Involved in a love affair on the small screen, the two of them are often flooded with offers as joint advertising models.
When asked about the chemistry, Song Ji-hyo admitted that he felt closer when shooting a commercial alone with Kang Gary. “But the funny thing is we never met outside of shooting hours once,” he said.
Kang Gary apparently did not deny this fact, “Even our fans know this, if we work hard (on ‘Running Man’).”
Looking back, the two of them tried to mention when they first met. Gary only knew the figure of Song Ji-hyo as an actress and ‘Running Man’ became their first program.
“Some say that each actress has her own aura. I don’t think that’s true, but when I saw her (Song Ji-hyo), I finally realized,” Gary said.

In response, the actress said, “I agree with it only for the promotion of the drama on Youtube. I actually hated the love line at first. So I asked Jong-kook oppa, ‘Don’t do that’.”
“I used to have a love line with Gary oppa, who is living happily at the moment. After Gary oppa left, I then formed a love line again with Jong-kook oppa. I don’t agree with having a love line with two men. I hate it so much,” she stated.
Song Ji-hyo said, “I started to accept it at some point and the reaction was interesting. So I then started wondering if it was okay to try? Should I do it? Now I want more.”
