The newest episode of SBS’s ‘Running Man’ had all the members in a frenzy to gather interesting objects to fund for the ‘unboxing auction’. Members were told to bring an object that you don’t use but can’t bear to throw away.

Recap

Opening scene starts off with the dongsengs making fun of Yoo Jae Suk and Ji Suk Jin for wearing similar jackets.

As each member shared what object they brought for the ‘unboxing race’, members were teased or hurt by some of the items. Interesting segments were Yang Se Chan’s protein powder, Ji Suk Jin’s clothes from the 80s and Kim Jong Kook’s limited edition CD.

Yang Se Chan brought an unopened container of protein powder he had bought at a whim for dieting. When asked if the protein powder was strawberry flavor, Yang Se Chan confirmed yes. Hilariously Haha read the label and pointed out it was actually chocolate flavor. Further telling Yang Se Chan that just because the container is pink doesn’t mean the protein powder is going to be strawberry flavor to everyone’s amusement.

Ji Suk Jin complained of his wife’s tendency to throw things away while introducing his item. Kim Jong Kook commented Ji Suk Jin should be thankful his wife hadn’t thrown him away or else. Ji Suk Jin shared he brought a meaningful item that was when he was a fashionista decades ago.

Kim Jong Kook’s item was Haha’s reggae limited CD box that Haha had gifted a long time ago. Haha expressed his disappointment and pointed out that CD box wasn’t even commercially sold but given to fans during one of his concerts. Kim Jong Kook stated he cherished the CD box but couldn’t really use it. Haha expressed he’s thankful Kim Jong Kook kept it until now instead of trying to sell it on a second hand website. Kim Jong Kook comments he couldn’t sell it since Haha wrote a message to Kim Jong Kook on the CD box.

Once everyone had presented their item, members were divided into teams to try to exchange the items for something more expensive to gather enough finding for their mission. Hence, the members were divided using the PPL (product placement) Samsung’s new phone that now has the fingerprint reader on the front of the screen + wireless earphones chargeable from the phone.

Race to gather items

Each team tries their best to trade their items with various celebrities. Hilariously Ji Suk Jin’s clothes were traded with SF9 members. The clothes that had looked “questionable” became so fashionable when worn by the idols. SF9 members Chani and Rowoon looked ready for the stage in Ji Suk Jin’s clothes.

Lee Kwang Soo’s figure cut out was valued at 10 cents, 2 dollars and later 50 dollars in Hwahakdong. Yoo Jae Suk was amazed at Lee Kwang Soo’s item being valued at 50 dollars even if the offer was for the buyer’s daughter (a huge fan of Lee Kwang Soo). It was funny to see Yoo Jae Suk trying to decrease the price telling the buyer its not worth 50 dollars.

Kim Jong Kook and Haha sell of Kim Jong Kook’s item by comparing Bob Marley giving a CD to Michael Jackson. The show commented on how thick faced Kim Jong Kook and Haha are for daring to sell of the CD for limited edition Michael Jordan sneakers from actor Oh Chang Seok.

Ready for the auction

Each team aimed to gain the most amount of funding to use during the auction to complete this week’s episode. Unfortunately, many were disappointed to learn some of their items had lower value than expected. In the end, Yoo Jae Suk & Lee Kwang Soo ended up gathering the most funding thanks to Yoo Jae Suk’s item-electric guitar.

Each team used the funding from their items to buy the boxes at the auction. From a total of 50 boxes, 10 boxes were reported to have a cellphone that contained clues to completing the mission. Each team gambled on which auction item would have a cellphone for completing the mission. Not surprisingly, Yoo Jae Suk & Lee Kwang Soo had the advantage since their team had the most funding. Ji Suk Jin caused everyone to be exasperated when he kept increasing the bid. Ji Suk Jin would call out the highest bid followed up increasing his bid again for no apparent reason. All the members asked why he would increase his bid when he doesn’t have any competitors.

Winner of this week’s episode

Team Yoo Jae Suk and Lee Kwang Soo successfully bidded for boxes that had clues for completing the mission. For winning the mission, Yoo Jae Suk and Lee Kwang Soo were told they could pick any of the remaining boxes to take home. If it had a cellphone, it was theirs to take.

Losers

Yoo Jae Suk and Lee Kwang Soo ended up picking a box with jump rope and an empty box respectively making them the winners but also the losers of the episode. All of their hard work resulted in receiving neither prize nor punishment.

Special notes

Songs from Queen and BTS were used a lot in the background.

Actor Oh Chang Seok parodied Kim Jong Kook when he is working out. According to Oh Chang Seok, Kim Jong Kook remarks “Its so tasty” when he’s lifting weights. Kim Jong Kook is said to be commenting “his work out is feeding his muscles.”

Opinion

This week’s episode felt rather bland compared to other episodes. ‘Running Man’ ratings have been on the decline in the recent years but comparing this episode to the most recent episodes, this one was not entertaining as the past ones. There were definitely some funny moments throughout the episode but it didn’t feel especially enjoyable.

[OPINION] Who Created Today’s Seungri?

Who exactly is Seungri, the hallyu star currently surrounded by various controversies in Korea?

Right now, whenever a Korean individual or Kpop fan hears or reads the 2 syllables Seungri, the first thing that comes to mind would be that celebrity who is in the news for various scandals. Keywords are likely to be Burning Sun assault, offering women to investors, illegal filming of sexual content, retirement, nation’s traitor etc. But just prior to a few months ago, Seungri was not a hated individual but a world star who’s influence was especially prominent in Asia.

Who is Seungri?

Seungri also known as Lee Seung Hyun was the maknae of Kpop’s global idol group, Big Bang. The 29 year old idol made his debut under YG Entertainment in 2006 with Big Bang to later become one of the most popular boy groups in the world. Seungri was one of the youngest singers during that time, merely 16 years old, when he stepped into the entertainment industry. Over the years, Seungri experienced various roles in the entertainment industry as singer, songwriter, actor, producer and entrepreneur.

Prior to controversy

Beginning 

Big Bang had their first break through in 2007 with the release of their first extended play ‘Always’, Big Bang took their place as one of the most influential artists as they focused on producing and creating their own songs. During this time, leader and producer G-Dragon was gaining more attention as fans from the group as his songs became hits setting records for continuously topping charts and sales. Some of G-Dragon’s earliest hits were ‘Lies’ (2007), ‘Last Farewell’ (2007), ‘But I Love U’ (2007).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Cv3phvP8Ro

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oWhFdNJfvw

With Big Bang’s continuously growing popularity, the group was having concerts within 7 months of debuting. As they continued to rise in popularity in Korea, they set their sights for Japan just one year after debut. During that year, the members had hectic schedules letting exhaustion pile up to the point G-Dragon, T.O.P and Seungri became hospitalized halting activities. Seungri already had an ankle injury when it was reported he later lost consciousness towards the end of a show on December 29, 2007. Later it was reported Big Bang had earned over $11.5 Million USD just in 2007. Considering inflation in 2019, 11.5 Million dollars was worth a lot more 12 years ago.

The following year in 2008, Big Bang was very successful in Japan becoming one of the groups to solidify the hallyu wave. By 2009, the group was pursuing solo activities during which each member focused on nurturing their individual talents. Seungri was well known for wanting to “shed” his maknae image at this time for a more mature look. He won his first award with his solo ‘Strong Baby’ tasting his individual success at the age of 19.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDTsf5xw3Kg

In the following years, Seungri continued his solo activities while also promoting as a member of Big Bang. He took on various acting roles, released more solo music, developed his DJ skills etc. Seungri was in some ways overshadowed by other Big Bang members in the entertainment industry. Once his hyungs went on hiatus for military service, Seungri’s popularity and activities undeniably surged.

2018

Just a year ago, Seungri was the only Big Bang member who was not serving mandatory military service yet. As a result, his popularity was growing not only in South Korea but also abroad as the only Big Bang member ‘to hold the fort’ before he went on hiatus for his own mandatory military service in Spring 2019. He made several guest appearances on MBC’s ‘I Live Alone’ increasing his popularity as viewers learned he was a considerate, detail oriented person in addition to being a successful businessman.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCnHW72eWJ0

After his segment in ‘I Live Alone’ was aired, Seungri was widely complimented for his successful ramen franchise company that has over 45 locations all over the world claiming annual earnings of approximately $96 Million USD. From then on, other successful businesses of the idol/entrepreneur was in the headlines like dance academy, clubs, DJ label etc.. Public perspective of Big Bang Seungri was shifting from an immature playboy often in the headlines because of scandals, clubbing and such to a mature and charismatic man. He went on to explain his tendency to pursue all forms of entertainment led him his success today as an entrepreneur in the show.

Seungri further explained on ‘I Live Alone’ that while his current businesses may seem successful he has experienced failure in previous business ventures. He stated he lost many things but learned from those incidents leading to his current identity (in 2018).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZk7RBpeaHM

Shortly after Seungri’s image as a successful businessman continued to garner positive reception, he was reported to be the new CEO of YGX in June 2018. YGX is a subsidiary of YG Entertainment that merged with Seungri’s DJ label NHR.

For the following months until the Burning Sun controversy was in the headlines, Seungri’s popularity was at its peak. He was appearing in various shows, held his first solo tour and his first studio album was well received. The idol was holding multiple executive positions in various companies and his businesses were growing. Seungri ended 2018 with on a good note, even hosting the 2018 MBC entertainment awards ceremony with Jun Hyun Moo and Hyeri.

Controversy Recap (up to March 11)

This momentum unfortunately did not last as news about his club, Burning Sun’s alleged assault broke the headlines in January 2019. Kim posted online he was assaulted by security and police when he tried to help a female at the club. This case is currently under investigation and with so many articles with various information, the exact details has become unclear.

Soon after, news about Seungri lobbying to investors with prostitutes joined the headlines. It led to chaos in the entertainment industry as various prominent figures were identified during the investigation.

Park Han Byul’s husband was identified to be involved in this case affecting the actress’s long awaited return to the small screen in MBC’s ‘Love in Sadness’.

Amidst the growing controversy surrounding Seungri, on March 11 everything changed. News reported Seungri to be a part of a group chatroom that had illegally filmed sexual content. What made this worse was the report of other celebrities being a part of the chatroom. Some of the females illegal filmed were reported to be idols.  

Shortly after, various celebrities including idols were implicated as many forms of “evidence” circulated on the Internet. Hours later, Seungri declared he would retire on his Instagram which was met with derision.

Society’s role 

There are various rumors and speculations about the controversies surrounding Seungri, but this article will not be delving in that direction. Instead, the focus will be what may have led to such controversies in the first place. What makes this such a big deal would be because it forced a lot of the “dirty laundry” in the entertainment industry to become public. It’s not a simple matter of someone caught breaking the law. But of a world star as the cause of the controversies that led to implicating other influential people.

In Korea, there are many situations where superficially everyone verbally supports gender equality and put their faith in the LAW. However, behind closed quarters there’s corruption, bribery and connections that can solve many things. A common plot seen in Korean drama where a chaebol uses their power, money and influence to be above the law is not completely without a grain of truth. In reality, it isn’t just chaebols but also influential figures in all parts of society, not only in South Korea but in every other country of the world. Just a couple years ago, Korea was in complete chaos as a nation because of abused power. If you’re unaware, the previous Korean president was impeached in 2016.

Many foreigners are unaware of Korean culture that takes hierarchy, social connections, “specs” (Korean term for social economic status) etc. very seriously. For a general idea, I would personally recommend watching Misaeng (2014) starring Im Si Wan, Lee Sung Min and Kang Sora.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkEb626FnbA

In Korea, there are still many people who work overtime without being able to request for overtime pay, sick leave and vacations. This is something I myself have experienced when I interned in Korea just a few years ago. Additionally, female employees are still pressured to pour alcohol for male colleagues. An example would be a scene in the beginning of episode 2 in JTBC’s ‘Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food’ (2018). Furthermore, prostitution is illegal but ‘red light districts’ do exist.

Interestingly, Seungri was previously in the headlines for having Gugudan’s Sejong pour drinks to “her favorite man” on TVN’s ‘Cheap Tour’ last October. But rather than the media focusing to criticize Seungri for his actions, it was the broadcasting company who was under fire for broadcasting that scene during “ safe hours for adolescent television viewing time.” (Note: Jung Joon Young was also in this episode)

This isn’t the first time YG’s celebrities have caused waves in the industry because of scandals. There have been previous scandals in the entertainment industry because of sexual and physical assault, harassment, prostitution, illegal drugs, drunk driving, tax evasion, sponsorship, adultery, underage drinking etc. in all areas of the entertainment world. 

Many of the celebrities who were implicated in various scandals mentioned above were able to return to the entertainment industry after a few years. This itself shows society may easily forget and forgive while failing to fix the actual problem resulting in lofty disdain for indiscretions and breaking the law.

Perspective

The controversies surrounding Seungri aren’t exactly new in Korean society. Seungri’s status whether guilty or innocent doesn’t matter as much as the fact that he isn’t the first nor the last person who will be accused, indicted, investigated etc. There are others who have probably done the same things mentioned in the controversies and there may be more in the future regardless of whether indicted or not. Aside from investigating to find out the truth, I think it is important to consider what this means for Korean society and what can be done to prevent it from reoccurring in the future.

There are a lot of things I could say about Seungri’s controversies that many may agree or disagree. No doubt I would be using lots of colorful vocabulary if I was to write about it. But taking a step back to see how someone who debuted at the young age of 16 ended up becoming called out as the “nation’s traitor” 14 years later, there’s probably various factors in the entertainment industry and society that played a significant role in Seungri’s current situation. 

Passing Thoughts

Could it be Seungri’s controversies are being used to cover something even bigger? Just a passing thought seeing all the attention focused on entertainment these days instead of fine dust levels from China, N.Korea, economy etc. I suddenly remembered SBS’s drama Pinocchio (2014) starring Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Suk. It’s a drama where the most powerful people hyped up celebrity news to hide conspiracies. (Crying because of Lee Jong Suk’s upcoming military hiatus.)

[RECAP] ‘Running Man’ Members Need to Find Faker Hiding Among The Freshmen Ep 442

On this week’s 442 episode of SBS’s Running Man, everyone is suspicious of each other being the fake freshman.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETtnAL9lqU8

This week’s episode of SBS’s Running Man was similar to SBS’s X-Man (2003-2007) where everyone looked for the “spy” who is completing secret missions. In this case, the cast had to find the fake freshman, henceforth returnee, hiding among the incoming students (class of 2019). Members had to correctly vote who is the returning student at the end of each round to win and avoid punishment.

Cast consisted of all 8 regular members with guests Hong Jin Young, Han Da Gam and Keum Sae Rok.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pp_pHT_zMoI

First round: Play various ‘OT’ games

Highlights from the first round included how the cast played the orange game, orange fart game and the Kpop game.

Orange game: Every time the “orange” was passed along, the player had to act like the orange had gotten bigger.

Orange Fart game: Suggested by Hong Jin Young, the rules are similar to the 007 game where people next to the “farting” person needs to say “oh it smells.” Whoever laughs during the game loses.

Kpop game: Everyone had to sing a song that included a keyword.

Interestingly when it was Kim Jong Kook’s turn, no one knew which song he was singing. Turned out it was his own song from 2006. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvHT2GvyGRA

End of Round 1: Returnee failed to complete the secret mission. Everyone was told the hint about the identity of the returnee, “actions and words revealing (returnee’s) age were used a lot.”

Second round: Jokgu

Members were divided into teams to determine the lunch menu. 1st place was awarded pork belly bbq for lunch. 2nd place got ramen and 3rd place received only rice and seaweed.

The secret mission for the returnee was shared at the beginning of this round, to avoid winning first place.

End of Round 2: Returnee succeeded in completing the secret mission.

Third round: Couple hoodie game

Cast was told they have to avoid being a couple with suspected returnee. Couples competed to see the words on the back of their opponent that needs to be relayed to their blindfolded partner.

Hilarious scene was when Lee Kwang Soo and Yoo Jae Suk competed. It was commented to be giraffe vs. hopper, with a reference made to Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won’s drama scene in ‘Secret Garden’.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztw9DdNYJRw

As usual when Kim Jong Kook played a round with Lee Kwang Soo, the lion beat the giraffe to no one’s surprise. Lee Kwang Soo was being dragged along by Kim Jong Kook so Yoo Jae Suk later called out Lee Kwang Soo’s word to end the poor giraffe’s misery.

End of Round 3: Returnee succeeded the secret mission of saying an old popular phrase.

Winner of this week’s episode

Returnee: The returning student among the incoming students was none other than… Haha!

Loser: 3 members excluding Haha had to get punished.

Kim Jong Kook’s triangle love line

Kim Jong Kook’s choice between Song Ji Hyo and Hong Jin Young was…..Song Ji Hyo! During the third round, Kim Jong Kook asked Song Ji Hyo to be a couple with him by saying “honey.” Hong Jin Young watched the two members become a couple while commenting “they look good together” possibly marking the end of Hong Jin Young’s love line with Kim Jong Kook.

This year, the first of the network’s super concerts is hoping to expand in its efforts last year. The Gwangju World Championships Organizing Committee will host the show, and it will be sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Gwangju Metropolitan City, and the Korea Tourism Organization.

Actor Jung Gyu Woon Is Currently In Debt

Actor Jung Gyu Woon shares he is currently in debt after taking a break in the entertainment industry.

OSEN

On SBS’s 2nd season of ‘Same Bed Different Dreams’, actor Jung Gyu Woon told his wife that their assets are currently “minus” meaning in debt. The actor initially did not want to tell his wife their financial situation but had to at her insistence and plans to seek a part time job. He married his non-celebrity wife in 2017 who is currently a graduate student majoring in classical piano.

Jung Gyu Woon shared he has not taken any new roles, not because he doesn’t want to work, but because of the offered roles. He felt all of his past characters and offers for new works were very similar and wanted to explore new types of roles. However as he didn’t accept any offers, its probably the entertainment industry assumed he wasn’t interested in acting anymore. Hopefully many directors will see this week’s episode so we will see him on the screen in the near future.

Actor Jung Gyu Woon has been acting in various films and dramas since 2004, his most recent dramas were History of a Salaryman (2012), God’s Gift-14 Days (2014) and Birth of a Beauty (2014).

[RECAP] Someone Challenges Kim Jong Kook on Ep 441 of ‘Running Man’

On this week’s 441 episode of SBS’s Running Man, someone directly challenged Kim Jong Kook!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ix_JMCN5msw

This week’s episode of SBS’s Running Man had the members in a frenzy to find the identity of “honeybee” who kept eliminating the members at every round. The first member eliminated from the start of the show was none other than Kim Jong Kook. The reason was for “bullying other members by intimidating and using your muscles.”

Cast consisted of all 8 regular members with some guests during one of the rounds. One of the guests was actress Lee Bo Young who appeared as a spontaneous guest during one of the segments.

Spoilers

The “honeybee” turned out to be…. more than 1 person! In the end, it was revealed to be the 3 maknaes- Lee Kwang Soo, Jeon So Min and Yang Se Chan. As all three members sought revenge against their older sister and brothers for giving them a hard time.

Potential suspects throughout this episode were Kim Jong Kook, Ji Suk Jin and Yoo Jae Suk. However, towards the end of the episode, members finally realized it was the youngest members based on clues.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1bx74DAY8o

Winners: The maknaes won against the other members when Lee Kwang Soo survived until the very end.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrHr3Qm-4G4

Losers: Members minus maknaes lost so the winners each chose a person to get the punishment. Coincidently, everyone chose the same member so Yoo Jae Suk had to get a spanking 3 times.

Check out the summary of episode 439: Mukbang race!
