Earlier this month, it was revealed that Lee Kwang-Soo and Lee Sun-Bin are dating. The Running Man cast member known as “The Giraffe” and the actress of K-drama Sketch opposite Rain, have been together for about six months.

Now that Lee Kwang-Soo and Lee Sun-Bin’s relationship is public, the producer of the former’s show Running Man promises an “epic episode.”

Running Man PD (producing director) Lee Hwan-Jin made the promise of the “epic episode” known through his Instagram. In the caption section, he wrote (translated from Hangul), “It’s going to be wild this week. Unprecedented press conference. Those who don’t miss out are winners.”

The photo showed Running Man cast members anxiously sitting at a table with a camera pointing right in front of them. In the center is the main host of Running Man, Yoo Jae-Suk. To his left is Lee Kwang-Soo. As for the other members, Kim Jong-Kook, Song Ji-Hyo, and Haha are to Jae-Suk’s right and Ji Suk-Jin, Yang Se-Chan, and Jeon So-Min are to Kwang-Soo’s left.

Given that Lee Kwang-Soo is in the middle next to the main host of Running Man, it is possible the press conference has something to do with him.

SBS highlights Lee Kwang-Soo and Lee Sun-Bin’s Running Man moments

At this moment, Hallyu news media is presuming the Running Man press conference has something to do with Lee Kwang-Soo and Lee Sun-Bin going public with their relationship. The statement provided by Lee Hwan-Jin is too secretive. But if there is any hint that Running Man is following up on the relationship news, the Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS) recently uploaded a video highlighting the couple’s key moments on the show.

It does seem that Running Man has an opportunity to run with real relationships on their show. During their end-of-the-year special, Haha’s wife Byul was a guest on the show. Lee Kwang-Soo and Lee Sun-Bin’s relationship now is a hot topic, ergo production will surely try to get Sun-Bin on the show more. Now if we hear Kim Jong-Kook and Hong Jin-Young have been dating for some number of months, production will have a field day.

Running Man airs on Sundays at 6:25 p.m. KST on SBS as part of their Good Sunday program. For international audiences especially in the Americas, it can be viewed on Rakuten Viki. Take note the latest three episodes are only available to Viki Plus Standard members.
