Last year was a whirlwind of emotions for Running Man
fans after Gary announced he was exiting the show to focus on his music career, followed by Song Ji Hyo and Kim Jong Kook's shocking axing by the show’s producers.
As fans were about to digest and accept the news, things took a turn for the worse – rumours began circulating that the show was going to be cancelled due to low ratings and the season was supposed to end this January. You can read all about it here
Mass confusion then ensued after SBS said in a statement that the cancellation was “a misunderstanding”. Shortly after, SBS then contradicted their own statement and gave their final word that Running Man will end in February 2017.
And now, as of January, according to a report in The Star
, the show will go on after all.
Geez, make up your mind guys!
