Song Ji Hyo’s Behavior Toward Fans At The “Running Man” Fan Meeting In Manila Shows Her True Personality
Recently, the long-running hit variety series Running Man held a fan meeting in Manila, which featured the seven members of the show’s current beloved cast.
The popular variety show, which is entering its 13th year on the air, has fans worldwide. The incredible bond between the cast members, the fun episodes that keep viewers on their toes, and the talented stars that make appearances keep fans tuning in, and it’s easy to see why.
While the show is popular in Korea, it’s also garnered an impressive fanbase overseas, including passionate fans in the Philippines.
Running Man was initially set to host their fan meeting in the Phillippines in 2020 to celebrate its 10th anniversary, but it was postponed during the pandemic.
After three long years, Pinoy fans were finally able to enjoy a night of nostalgia, entertainment, and fun at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, which can seat 15,000-20,000 fans.
The cast members had fun on stage, making fans feel like they were on an episode of Running Man themselves as they played games, sang songs, and, of course, had iconic interactions among themselves.

The cast members actively engaged with fans, and their show, ended nearly an hour after the expected time as they spent extra time on stage entertaining fans.
The fanmeet was supposed to end at 8:30pm but the members did an encore, an encore of the encore, and another encore of the encore of the encore. All in all, it ended at 9:20pm. The wait was truly worth it. Thank you, Running Man.#RUNNINGMANinMANILA pic.twitter.com/7xmNLVOx0c

Fans shared their experiences at the fan meeting on Twitter, and a common theme was how kind the cast members were, and it was frequently noted how personal Song Ji Hyo made the experience for those who attended.
The lovely actress and model took her time to pose for photos, take photos with fans’ phones, sit on the edge of the stage to get closer to fans, receive fan gifts, and was the last person to leave the stage after an already extended show.
What touched me the most was jihyo's kindness, she was the first one who approached the fans tot ake selcas, she made sure she covered all sides, she was the last one on stage because the fans begged her to take another picture
