Running Man Recap: Episode 327

Episode 327: Bromance War: November 27, 2016 Today’s <Running Man> takes place in Seomun Market in Daegu which is the fourth largest city in Korea. There are just four MCs in the show’s opening, Yoo Jae-suk, Ji Suk-jin, Lee Kwang-soo, and Haha. The PD asks if they feel lonely, and all four yell out “No!” It’s better this way because they don’t have to listen to the others nagging.

Announcement: State of the Blog 1

Hello Readers! It’s been almost a month and a half since I started this blog. I started Korean Variety Recaps because I’m a huge fan of <Game of Thrones> and always read multiple recaps and listened to various podcasts after every episode, and thought it would be awesome to have that kind of community for other shows that I watch. The past month and a half have been both exciting and stressful. Exciting because this blog has gotten more traffic than I had expected and stressful because writing about shows is extremely time-consuming. I’m sure many of you have...
