“Running Man” Song Ji-hyo: “‘Parasite’ in English? Amoeba…”

The kkang-kkang gathered to arrange a feast on “Running Man.”

In SBS entertainment program “Running Man,” which aired on the afternoon of May 8th, “Angsook Chemistry Race” was held with guests who are known for their close relationship.


The mission was portrayed as a showdown between the upper village (Ji Seok-jin, Ha-ha, Song Ji-hyo) and the lower village (Yoo Jae-seok, Yang Se-chan, Jeon So-min). Ji Seok-jin sued Yoo Jae-seok for insulting remarks, Ha-ha sued Yang Se-chan for spreading false information, while Song Ji-hyo accused Jeon So-min of having excessive eye smile whenever a male guest came out.


In this episode, former judo athlete twins Cho Jun-ho, Cho Jun-hyun, Yuri and Hyo-yeon of Girls’ Generation joined the upper and lower villages. Girls’ Generation’s Yuri and Hyo-yeon set the mood by performing the choreography of “Tell Me Your Wish,” “Hoot” and their debut song “Into the New World.” At this time, Song Ji-hyo warmed up the atmosphere by dancing a sexy dance in front of Kim Jong-kook.


The confrontation between the upper and lower villages finally begun. Kim Jong-kook, the “Class president Kook,” who does not belong to any village, chose to be with the lower village in his first mission. The first mission was a judo match, which led to a sparring matche between enemies from 2 villafes. In the first match, Yoo Jae-seok beat Ji Seok-jin 4-2. In the second match, Cho Joon-ho and Cho Joon-hyun faced off, drawing surprise with their performance as if they were at the Olympics.

Song Ji-hyo and Jeon So-min participated in the third match of the first mission. Song Ji-hyo took off Jeon So-min’s name tag and her socks from the beginning with her strength. Jeon So-min tried to turn the tables, but was helpless, and eventually changed her direction to entertainment and ended the showdown as the heroine of a tragic love story. As a result of the judo game, the upper village beat the lower village in the first mission.


Ahead of the second quiz match, Kim Jong-kook chose the upper village. If they get the question wrong, they will have to return to the starting point, and a feast of laughter caused by the Kkang-kkangie continued. Jeon So-min called “Heo Kyun” as “Heo Jun,” and Yuri failed because she answered “Curtain Call” as “Encore.” Yang Se-chan was humiliated as he called “Gang Gam-chan” as “Gam Gang-chan.” Song Ji-hyo also drew laughter by saying “Parasite” in English is “Amoeba”.


After 40 minutes, the production team abolished the rule of returning to the starting point, Jeon So-min then used the unconditionally correct answer chance that she talked about 10 months ago to lead her team to victory. However, unlike Jeon So-min‘s thought that they would tell her the right answer, her wrong answers were also treated as correct answers, drawing laughter.


As a result of completing all missions, Kim Jong-kook won first place. Second place was Ha-Ha. Yang Se-chan and Yoo Jae-seok had to receive the penalty. Kim Jong-kook and Ha-ha received a high-end honey set as a gift, while Yang Se-chan and Yoo Jae-seok were given a penalty of arriving at the set 1 hour earlier in the next filming as a penalty.
