There is no doubt that Yoo Jae-suk is one of the most competent and popular Master of Ceremonies (MC) in South Korean variety shows, especially in 'Running Man.' Very few rival him in skills and expertise, but now it looks like he has finally met his match.
Soompi notes that on the March 26 episode, Yoo Jae-suk will have to face-off against actress Park Jin-joo, who caught the public eye, thanks to her role in the hit movie 'Sunny.' They will compete against each other in a series of competitions and acts. The episode will also be a "Princess Special" and include celebrities like Jun So-min, Kang Ha-na, Lee Se-young, and GFRIEND's Umji.
More specifically, they will be required to take part in a cursing competition to see who curses the most convincingly. It is to be noted that the Jin-joo caught the attention of her viewers for her cursing scenes in 'Sunny' and this made her role a memorable one because of how convincingly she pulled it off.
Yoo Jae-suk and Park Jin-joo competed against each other to see who can convincingly act out the fake cursing scenes. The results weren't a surprise. There was no contest between Yoo Jae-suk and Park Jin-joo as the latter completely bowled him out with her convincing curse deliveries. In fact the actress was so incredibly convincing that Yoo Jae-suk was left stunned. The actresses reports Soompi, also competed against Ji Suk-jin and prove her worth again.
In the preceding episode on March 19, we saw how the 'Running Man' members were tasked with finding items to populate their safe house. Song Ji-hyo and Lee Kwang-soo teamed up to secure their own set of items. Ji-hyo called her good friend Lee Dong-wook, who got a bit annoyed as he was in the middle of a shoot. Ji-hyo's brother did help her but in exchange of being allowed to kick his sister.
As for Lee Kwang-soo, he needed a sofa. Upon asking his father for the item, the latter said he had to bring signatures of Kwang-soo's celebrity friends Song Joong-ki and Jo In-sung for his employees. Not only was Kwang-soo able to secure Joong-ki and In-sung's autographs, he was also able to get one from Park Bo-gum and eventually secure the sofa for their safe house.
The next episode of Running Man airs on March 26, on SBS channel.
