Lee Kwang Soo Explains What Being On “Running Man” For 10+ Years Taught Him

It was something he gained only after being on the show for a long time.

The most recent guests on the second season of The Game Caterers were the artists of Starship Entertainment. The premise of the variety series was to bring together a group of celebrities and make their relationship stronger by playing minigames for prizes.

During a break, one of his fellow actors, Son Woo Hyun, curiously asked Kwang Soo if he felt awkward when he first filmed Running Man in 2010.

Kwang Soo explained that at first, he was afraid of doing something rude while on the show, but over time audiences learned to trust him and give him the benefit of the doubt, and now nobody has a problem with him being on TV.

Although there is no news of whether Kwang Soo will make his return to Running Man, he has kept busy by starring in other variety shows such as The Zone: Survival Mission on Disney+ and the upcoming series Korea No. 1.
