[TV Series] RM Episode 188
Running Man episode 188 takes to the Australian continent this time. After they got themselves soaked wet in the previous episode crossing the Han river, this time they are going to get even more than just soaked. Yes, in Australia, country of wildlife, home to the Great Barrier Reef, obviously it wouldn't be enough the Running Man would be running around in a building only. No! The mother nature is calling for them all... Yes! And the guests for this episode would be Jung-Ji-hoon (also commonly known for his stage name as 'Rain') and Kim Woo-bin. You know what else that makes this episode to be exciting? Ji-hyo won't be around. That right, there can only be one meaning. The Running Man will have the run of their life. The teams were split right at the beginning of the show, 2 persons per team. Kwang-soo and Rain, Jae-suk and Woo-bin, Haha and Jong-kook, and Gary is with Suk-jin hyung.
The main game would be 'Finding the Four Elements'. After they are split into groups, they were given a bunch of card to choose that would decide their element, individually. But they won't know what they choose, and to know what their or other member's element, they would need to win the subsequent game that will follow. We all know where this would lead to, tag-ripping game at the end. But oh not today, today is reserved for finding the hints for the elements. So lets get moving!
Especially when they travel to Tangalooma using helicopters. It appears that they are rushing. Right, they only do the filming for 2 days and Australia is a huge country. So they probably got a very very tight schedule. There are 4 helicopters, and they are moving on as soon as they got aboard on their aircraft.
You know what, its funny to see them diving over and over again trying unlock those chests. Haha even bumped his head on of the shipwreck beam while diving. There was platform by the shipwreck that they use to sit and rest while to dive again. Why didn't they just, pick the chest up to the platform or the shores? Even if the keys were scattered, but it was linked with one big ring, and only 1 is the real key. Wouldn't be easier to do that? Well, where is the fun in that, yes?
Jong-kook becomes furious because he was in his sleeping cloth already, so he and Suk-jin hyung grab Kwang-soo and Haha and push them into the pool as well. Funnily, Jae-suk hyung who was watching at the side also got thrown into the pool by Jong-kook. Jae-suk hyung then take his revenge by pulling Haha's hair and kicking Kwang-soo into the pool, again.
In the end, all of them got soaked wet. Gary who had just come out already taken his bath, also got thrown into the pool. Woo-bin too get his fair share in the pool, and what is left is only Rain. They catch him because, well, why the hell not? One Running Man got soaked wet, then all of them must in. Its the only logical thing to do. And whole thing ended with a pool party.
Truthfully, this is one of the exciting episode of Running Man. So many games, and the Running Man are so active. Its funny when Kwang-soo was paired with Rain. Rain knows Kwang-soo's reputation as the betrayal icon, and told Kwang-soo that he hates traitor. Kwang-soo assures Rain that he won't betray Rain, while sneakily try undermine Rain while getting the element hints. It was hilarious, cause Rain is also doing the same thing. It somehow reminds of Hyo-jin. She also had that kind of exchange with Kwang-soo. It was so funny. Ah.. I enjoyed this episode very much.
