[TV Series] RM Episode 196
Truthfully, this episode is quite fun but urmm.. why didn't they made it into 2 episodes? It seems like they cut out a lot of scenes. But yeah, I think this episode was probably patched up together to make something simpler (they did the recording in the same building the whole day) while they concentrate on more grander next episodes. The news have it that the Running Man are joining the Asian Dream Cup 2014, along with Park Ji-sung, one of the Running Man best guest.
I think there is no need to hide or sugar-coat anything. Ji-hyo won the whole thing. Although I have no idea how or why should anyone win at all. Because they didn't keep the score or anything. But yeah, she was the last winner and urm.. well, whatever. Might as well repeat it a thousand more times, maybe somewhere along that point she would be an idol or something. The ending for some reason, infuriates me.
But at least the rest of the show was quite entertaining. The episode started with rest of the Running Man scattered all over the place, laying on the floor. They didn't remember anything, and most importantly they didn't have their name-tag on their back. The Running Man were told that they were out of the game, and in order to come back to life, they need to find the pill that would bring them back into the past, thus reviving them.
|There no name-tag!|
|Jae-suk hyung coolly lie on the railing, instead of on the floor.|
Because that gag is so yesterday.
|But Jae-suk hyung coolly solved the riddle all by himself.|
The answer to this riddle is the 'Skywalk'.
|Kwang-soo managed to get the pill bottle. But it contain nails instead of pills.|
Kwang-soo questioned whether the nails can be counted as the pills.
To which Jae-suk hyung replied -
|The word 'nail', 'eat' and 'cannot' have the same sound.|
Its a play-word by Jae-suk hyung.
|"You really are magician of language."|
|"How could you let 'Yoomes Bond' image screwed up like this?"|
This re-enactment upsets Jae-suk hyung greatly.
Because Jong Kook.. well, he kind of use brute force.. a lot.
|Following Jae-suk hyung recommendation-|
Jong-kook took the role as Kookminator.
Now he finally fit his trigger happy character.
|In the past, Kwang-soo got tricked by Suk-jin hyung.|
He saw Suk-jin hyung got carried away, and thought he was out.
Turns out he single-handedly helped Suk-jin hyung to fake his out.
Although Kwang-soo was excited to play Suk-jin hyung's Lupin character, here is the problem.. he will always be taken out first, regardless whether or not he is the suspect. And also, he can't win anything, or there would be hell to pay. In this re-enactment, he concentrated on taking out those that have been the obstacles to his winning for all this time. Ji-hyo.
In the end, he got caught, but at least he got his revenge. Go go Kwang-so!!
After that, again, another magical pill hunt began. This time, Haha got the pill, and they all got resurrected in the notorious episode of Running Man Best of the Best - Superpower. Yes, I said it. That episode was notoriously misleading. The best superpower at that time was no doubt Ji-hyo's Mind Controller power. But that was more supercheat rather than superpower. Because she got 2 superpower: Reflection ability and know-fucking-everyone-power ability. The truth is, Gary's Duplicator power was the most useful. And against all odd, especially against Ji-hyo supercheat, Gary emerged victorious.
Haha, made a mistake by taking the Mind Controller power. It was super useless because in the re-enactment, everyone had already known what kind of superpowers in play. And the reflection ability only worked once, making it pale compared to the Phoenix power. Instead, he gave Ji-hyo the Duplicator power. The very power that helped Gary to win in the first time. By the time he realize his mistake, or maybe its scripted, I don't know, but it was too late to do anything.
Everyone knew what superpower out there, and the only question was who got which one. As usual, Running Man all screwed themselves so that Ji-hyo can win. In fact, it goes exactly according to what she ordered. First, they find the one who have the Death Note power, which was Suk-jin hyung. In his desperation, Suk-jin hyung took out Jong-kook, who had his former Sixth Sense power and his own superhuman strength. Haha who had the Reflection power took out Suk-jin hyung in return.
|"Who is Phoenix, go fucking sacrifice yourself!!"|
|Haha snapped by the time he realized what was going on.|
