Ji Suk Jin must be really unfortunate. Not only is he mocked and made fun of on Running Man by other cast members, now it appears he is also the most unlucky of them all.

Fortune tellers have told him that he will have bad luck throughout 2017.

During the New Year Special episode of Running Man a traditional 'Saju' fortune teller and a tarot card reader visited the set of the popular variety show to read the fortunes of the cast members. When it was Jin Suk Jin's turn, the Suju fortune teller told him that he will have the worst luck out of all the other members of Running Man in this year, noted website Soompi.

Needless to say, Suk Jin's fellow cast members were in splits upon hearing of the misfortunes of their poor friend, especially after the fortune teller advised him to "stay put and not do anything." Not one to take things lying down, Suk Jin approached the tarot card reader with confidence, saying: "Fortune telling differs between countries, so I won't come out [as last again]"

Ji Suk Jin's brave face sunk again as the tarot card reader read out his fortune. She said "your luck will not improve," much to the chagrin of Ji Suk Jin. The tarot reader added "Don't do things like expanding your business. The things you're doing now, don't expand on them, and do only small things." The Running Man cast members burst out laughing at the obvious echo of these words with the prediction made by the traditional Suju fortune teller before.

The two fortune readers had also suggested matchmaking between the variety show's members, like the marriage compatibility of Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo. According to the fortune readings, Ji Suk Jin had the most compatibility with Yoo Jae-suk at 80%, while Haha had the most compatibility with him at 70%.

Among the Running Man cast members, Ji Suk Jin is the most friends with Yoo Jae-suk. Suk Jin joined a year after Yoo Jae-suk joined and have remained the best of friends on the popular variety show.
