It was time for Running Man's Traitor Couple to receive their punishment for having failed at their previous mission. The punishment was indeed a dangerous one as Lee Kwang-soo and Jun So-min had to ride on creaking wooden cable cars that were suspended over the ocean waters which were very turbulent to put it mildly. The worst part is each of them had to undertake the cable car ride alone.

As noted by website Soompi, a source in Indonesia sad that the ocean was quite calm till the 'Running Man' duo visited the site. The waters suddenly turned wild and the waves started crashing against the rocky shores, rising so high that the 'Running man' crew had to constantly keep moving to avoid becoming drenched.

Jun So-min of course, can be counted to bring some humour in to the mix. She eased the tension when she commented, "Lee Kwang Soo's bad luck has made the ocean angry!" This made everyone laugh. However, the real trial was about to begin for everyone's favourite Traitor Couple as they had to successfully finish the journey on creaking wooden cable cars over a very angry ocean. Nature's fury indeed!

Compared to facing the cold waves of the ocean on a cable car, their reception by the fans at Jakarta's Yogyakarta Adisucipto International Airport was very warm; with screaming fans welcoming the 'Prince of Asia' and his Running Man partner. Jun So-min in particular was overwhelmed at Kwang-soo's international popularity.

In any case, one thing remains constant and that is Kwang-soo and So-min's chemistry and friendship. They appear naturally close, with no affectations. A recent video published by SBS shows both of them dining. Kwang-soo suddenly starts eating from her plate in large amounts. Jun So-min is surprised but she does not appear to be bothered in the slightest and allows Kwang-soo to eat as much from the Indonesian dish as he wants. Fans have lovingly dubbed them the KwangMin couple.

Now, whether Kwang-soo and So-min win the dangerous ordeal on cable cars across the wild ocean, remains to be seen. The upcoming October 8 episode, airing at 4.50 p.m. KST on SBS, will reveal their fate.
