It is a sad day for all fans of Running Man as Gary completed his last day of filming for the program.
On October 31st, Gary commemorated his last day on set with a photo the cast members and production team. The farewell photo was reuploaded on his personal Instagram account with a caption saying, “It’s the best moment of my life. I will never forget you all.”
The photo featured cast members Song Ji Hyo, Yoo Jae Suk, Ji Suk Jin, Lee Kwang Soo, HaHa and Kim Joong Kook with the rest of the crew gathered after finishing their last shoot. The shot showed varied reactions from the Running Man team as they pulled cute and sad faces over Gary’s departure.
As confirmed last week, Gary will be leaving the program to focus on his music. An apology was posted on his account days later as he apologised to fans for the sudden announcement. Gary was one of the original member of the cast and has been on the program for the last seven years.
Meanwhile, Gary debuted as a rapper, joining hip-hop group X-Teen in 1997 before leaving and joining Honey Family in 1999, before forming Leessang with Gil in 2002.
