World-renowned boxing hero Manny Pacquiao appeared on “Running Man” and had a big match with Kim Jong-kook.
Manny Pacquiao appeared as a special guest for the race called “Show Me The Fight Money” on the recent broadcast of “Running Man”, which aired on October 23rd. As soon as Pacquiao showed up, he raised the tension by tearing off the name tags of “Running Man” members Yoo Jae-seok and Yang Se-chan, proving his admirable power.
During the opening section that followed, Pacquiao reunited with Yoo Jae-seok, whom he met on “Infinite Challenge” 5 years ago. Yoo Jae-seok commented, “He has become cuter and more friendly now”. Kim Jong-kook, who is a big fan of Pacquiao, did an enthusiastic greeting. Meanwhile, Ha Ha was upset because Pacquiao did not recognize him although he was also on “Infinite Challenge” together with Yoo Jae-seok.
In particular, Pacquiao revealed that he personally requested to appear on “Running Man”. He added, “My family and my children enjoy watching this show”, explaining the reason. Surprised by the sudden confession, “Running Man” cast reacted, “Pacquiao’s family knows us?”.
Pacquiao and “Running Man” then joined the sparring game with paints. However, the members couldn’t even beat Pacquiao despite playing 2:1 matches. In particular, Yoo Jae-seok took off his glasses and climbed into the ring but could not make a single hit.
In the end, the big match between the world-famous champion Pacquiao and the “neighborhood champion” Kim Jong-kook was carried out. Still, Pacquiao won without a twist. During the two’s fierce confrontation, Pacquiao threw a counter punch with pink paint on Kim Jong-kook’s face.
“Running Man” members cheered, saying “We’re seeing Kim Jong-kook getting hit”. In response, Kim Jong-kook smiled and said, “Personally, I’m grateful for that. It’s my honor”.
At the end of the broadcast, Pacquiao greeted, “I had so much fun today. I hope this is not my last time”, expressing his feelings.
