[TV Series] RM Episode 198
But no, this time will it be different, I think. In fact, I think this time their games were straight forward with no 'magical' or 'mysterious' twist that ended up weird and infuriating. It was fast-paced with lots of hilarious moments. Pretty good build up for the next episode anticipation. This episode guests were, Choi Hee, Ha Yeon-soo, Han Hye-jin, Jin Se-yeon, Min-ah, Narsha, and Park Seo-joon.
First of all, they all went to meet with their partner, Jae-suk hyung with Jin Se-yeon, Gary and Min-ah, Haha and Han hye-jin, Ji Suk-jin and Choi Hee, Jong-kook and Ha Yeon-soo, Kwang-soo and Narsha, and Ji-hyo with Park Seo-joon.

|Kwang-soo and Narsha noona.|
Anyway, the first game was edited out, but it was shown in a small screen below when they started on the second couple game. It was won by Kwang-soo and Narsha. The second couple game is called 'Snow-white love', I think it have something to do with a Korean love drama. The idea is to give their couple bouquet of flower to profess their love. The bouquet was hanged from the ceiling, and there is only one so they have to fight to grab it. Wait, did I mentioned that they have to run and jump a series of hurdle before getting the bouquet, and the bouquet was hanged right above a whole floor made of acupuncture mats? There were 3 rounds, because there would be 3 places for winner. First 2 round were for men, while the last one was for female. Let the torture begin!
|"Hye-jin sshi.. don't expect much from me!"|
This game puts Haha at a disadvantage position.
|Of course, if its grabbing stuff from high position..|
Kwang-so is the most advantageous.
|But that would only be for grabbing stuff above.|
He still have to contend with those people below.
|Girls' fight can be very scary.|
The next game was in a cafe. Even before they got in, there was a trampoline surrounded by protective nets, right outside of the cafe. But before that, they were drinking iced coffee first to lull them into a false sense of security. To ease up the tension of anticipating the next torture, Jae-suk hyung took the opportunity to tease Kwang-soo.
|Jae suk hyung: "Er, I think someone came to watch our shooting."|
|"The person behind me, is breathing too strongly"|
|"Is he really that stupid?"|
Narsha is worried that Kwang-soo would turn on his 'village idiot' mode.
|Kwang-soo was testing the trampoline.|
He was tall, so, it could be easy for him.
But its kind of creepy when he suddenly appeared behind the glass.
|Narsha asked him to smile a bit.|
But only increased the creepiness ten fold.
|Kwang-soo didn't know what facial face he should make.|
|"We should call an ambulance for Suk-jin hyung."|
But expectedly, Jae-suk hyung and Se-yeon failed terribly. They got the same topic as Kwang-soo and Narsha, which supposedly to be very easy. It was 'People and Character', something that Kwang-soo and Jae-suk hyung knows quite a lot because they both are movie maniac. Se-yeon didn't even got one answer right, and it made Jae-suk hyung a bit upset.
|"See? Jae-suk is not making eye contact."|
|Does it means that he is angry?|
Anyway, the next place was a restaurant. They gather there, and the game was 'Love is hot'. They were given a bunch of uncooked tteokbokki in a bowl, and would use it to bet in the games that had been prepared. The winner would be the couple with the lesser tteokbokki left in their bowl. Looked down upon as always, no one bet on Suk-jin hyung. But he and Choi Hee won the first place because they emptied their bowl first. The second winner is Jae-suk hyung and Se-yeon.
And that, bring us to final game, 'Unbreakable Love'. They have chose and exchange their stones when they won the early games. Its time to decide which one stone is the strongest. How? Taking turns, they will smash the opponent's stone.
Turns out Gary was wrong. There was no twist. His egg was smashed completely by Haha and Hye-jin's stone. It was super hilarious. He even said "Let us see the biggest reversal in Running Man's history", at the same time as Hye-jin splat the egg. Haha could only commented how the egg yolks stained their stone.
Then, when it was Kwang-soo and Narsha's turn, they won four times in a row. Turns out Narsha had chosen well, their stone was the second strongest. But who got the strongest stone? It was Jae-suk hyung and Se-yeon. And they only won the earlier games once and got the chance to change their stone one time. And with that, Jae-suk hyung turned from someone with bad luck, into the luckiest person. Because the prize was not a gold, but a diamond.
|As usual, Jae-suk hyung gave the diamond Se-yeon.|
|The ultimate prize.|
When playing the 'Radish's love' (it the game where couple eat a chocolate stick or noodles, they eat it until their mouth touches). But in this game they uses radish instead.
Yeon-soo told Jong-kook to leave it to her, where she went so deep, the radish almost all gone. There was about a 0.3mm slice of radish left. That is like, 0.3mm distance between their teeth, and obviously they lips touched. It was crazy, Jong-kook's face got really red and he got teased a lot for the remainder of the day. I guess that day most the Running Man were lucky. Kwang-soo met a super nice noona, Suk-jin hyung won a game with his own strength, Jae-suk won a diamond, and Jong-kook got a loving kiss from a beautiful woman.
