Lee Kwang-soo cries in pain after being kicked by Apink's Bomi in the legs, in the October 15 episode of 'Running Man.' Show members,Song Ji-hyo and Yoo Jae-suk react in surprise.

Lee Kwang-soo is portrayed in 'Running Man' as always being desperate for love. He is shown as easily falling for the charms of various female guests that come to the show. However, he is mostly unlucky and ends up being a fodder for laughter. Now, the tallest 'Running Man' member has blamed Yoo Jae-suk as the reason why he does not succeed in getting dates.

As revealed earlier, Lee Kwang-soo will have to face a punishment in Australia where he will have to take part in a diving experience with actual crocodiles, called 'Cage of Death' in Crocosaurus Cove, Darwin City. Kwang-soo will, of course, be given a partner. As noted by Soompi, the 'Running Man' members took part in a race to find out the identity of that person. While the winner is excluded from the nominee list, anyone from the remaining members could be picked.

In the second round, the cast members were asked to guess the answer that a single person would most probably select in a survey about relationships. Yoo Jae-suk said he was confident about the answer because he acts as Lee Kwang-soo's dating coach. Kwang-soo even confirmed this fact.

The question posed to Yoo Jae-suk was, "Late at night, you receive a text message from someone you're interested in and the text reads, 'You up?' What is your reply?" Choosing the third answer, Yoo Jae-suk said, "I emphasise that I'm a busy city person by saying 'I didn't see your text because I was working.'"

Unfortunately for Yoo Jae-suk, his answer was revealed to be the one that had the lowest rank, with only four percent choosing that option. Lee Kwang-soo was a bit annoyed by this outcome and said, "This is why I can't date. I keep getting relationship advice from Yoo Jae-suk!"

Lee Kwang-soo never getting a date is sad but he has an undeniable chemistry with Jun So-min. Like the Monday Couple previously, viewers love the Traitor Couple. As for Yoo Jae-suk, he may be the 'Nation's MC,' but he is a bad dating coach, if Kwang-soo is to be believed.

Kwang-soo ran into a bit of controversy during filming of this episode when Apink's Bomi revealed that he had drunk-called her once and she had felt uncomfortable. Kwang-soo said in his defence that he never had any bad intentions.

Though the cast of 'Running Man' kept teasing him about the incident, the issue didn't take a serious turn. If it was any consolation, Bomi got to kick hard on Kwang-soo's thigh muscles, causing him to fall to the ground, with a lot of pain.

The next episode of 'Running Man' airs on October 22, at 4.50 p.m. KST. Kwang-soo will have to shift his attention from dating to crocodiles on that episode. Check out some official photos from Crocosaurus Cove wildlife exhibit, below.
