I love SBS‘ Running Man! The race…the challenges…and…all of the craziness from having a set of regular comedians on the show. However the show would not be complete without its guests and they’ve certainly had some incredible ones including BIG BANG, MBLAQ, SISTAR, BoA, IU, SNSD, Choi Min Soo (hehehe…Grasshopper Hunter) and many more…so here are 5 more idol groups that would be great to see on the show all together!
INFINITE I think would be quite entertaining on Running Man, especially after seeing them on Sesame Player last year. The guys proved that they could entertain, be playful, and witty while on the show. Whether it was running away from their managers as they try to enjoy their freedom, pranking their group members with a vinegar banana, or just enjoy each others’ company…Additionally, INFINITE showed that they have the competitive spirit in them while competing in a variety of idol sporting events, so why not bring that competitive spirit to Running Man, right?
Check out a little of INFINITE’s “Running Man” skills below from their first episode of Sesame Player.
Teen Top is another group with a very competitive spirit that would be very entertaining to watch. This guys have shown that they are quite athletic through the idol sports competitions and on a number of variety shows where they test their athletic abilities, Niel even broke SHINee Minho’s high jump record. In addition to showing off their athleticism, the guys also showed that they can complete missions, entertain and even betray their own members (*cough cough* CAP) earlier this year when they were on Secret Island, just like on Running Man. And when they couldn’t complete the tasks on their own, they ended up trying to steal the other members. Sound familiar? I think the guys would do very well on Running Man, don’t you?
Check out the scene from Secret Island below.
KARA is another girl group that would do extremely well on the show. For one, the guys on the show would totally fawn all over them, especially HaHa and it would be absolutely hilarious to watch and two, KARA seems like they would be a lot of fun to watch on the show. Goo Hara, Jiyoung, Seungyeon, Gyuri have all been on the show individually (well Seungyeon and Gyuri were together) and have shown that they are great Running Man guests, but it would be cool if all of them were on the show at once. Unfortunately I know Nicole is a nervous about variety shows. T T Of course, Jihyo may not be happy with all of them fawning over KARA, but if anything it’ll make good TV.
Check out KARA’s variety skills from back on Idol Show as well as a clip of Gyuri and Seungyeon on a fairly recent episode of Running Man below.
The beastly idols of 2PM are another group that I would want to see on Running Man. Both Taecyeon and Nichkhun have been on the show before, but the entire group has not and I think the entire group needs to be! Last summer, 2PM proved they are entertainers with their very own variety show, 2PM Show. The guys were tasked with a variety of missions including eating lemons as fast as possible (Taecyeon’s favorite), creating formations within a time limit, eating incredibly hot noodles, sledding down a hill while eating ice cream, and tons more. No matter what the challenge, the group had a great sense of humor about all of it and the viewers enjoyed watching them. So I definitely think they should guest as an entire group on Running Man!
Take a peek at one of 2PM’s challenges on last year’s 2PM Show here.
The final group is the master of entertainment themselves…Super Junior! Running Man has already seen Siwon, Heechul, and just recently Eunhyuk on the show, but not the rest and Super Junior is full of characters that would be excellent for the show especially Leeteuk, Eunhyuk, Shindong, Kyuhyun, and I think Yesung’s awkwardness would be good for the show too. The guys can basically do it all, so why not bring the group with tons of variety experience onto the show? Right? I don’t know how they would be able to incorporate ALL of them on the show at once, but I’m sure they can figure it out.
And just in case you need a little convincing, there’s a little Let’s Go Dream Team and Intimate Note below.
Well that’s five of my choices. Who else would you all like to see on the show?!
