South Korean actress and model Song Ji Hyo could not stop crying during Gary's last episode on Running Man. The duo were popularly called as Monday Couple on the show.

The 35-year-old actress was determined not to cry on Gary's final day, however, she could not hold back her emotions. The 38-year-old rapper, whose real name is Kang Hee-gun, told Ji Hyo jokingly: "I thought you'd be in tears but you're not crying at all. I'm a little disappointed."

"We've shared a lot of stories together," she said. "It's a little regretful, but I will continue to cheer you on. Be well."

Kim Jong Kook added: "I overheard this, but she said that she doesn't know what she'll do on Mondays without Gary from now on."

Ji Hyo responded: "When did I say that?"

Yoo Jae Suk joked: "I heard something a little different. I thought she said, 'Is that bastard in his right mind?'"

Gary had previously met up with 1,000 fans in Taiwan during a fan meeting organized by the Korean Tourism Organization. During the event, he spoke about his feelings regarding his departure from the SBS variety show.

He said: "My heart is sorry that I could not be with the 'Running Man' members until the end. Although I've left the program, I did my best on the show. It hasn't been long since I've left the show so I don't quite feel it yet, but next week when the time comes around that I'm usually filming, I think I will feel empty."
