Quiz · Video · Celeb · Style · TV/Film · Music · Features. It was a picture of him with Song Ji Hyo and Kim Jong Kook which left the fans with a heartwarming That 90% compatible for marriage thing?.
However, this was more for the entertainment value and expectation of the extraordinary rather than sly glances or possible veiled flirting. More so than the rumors, the huge amount of supporters, fan accounts, and videos was even more unexpected, yet fascinating.
Sure, I had seen some badly photoshopped images and seen some social media tags, but that happens across all forms of media and entertainment. However, these pairs and groups are almost entirely exclusive to the show. On the other hand, SpartAce has expanded beyond it. The fact that their speculated romance even affected her interaction with the cast and influenced the editors of these programs is significant.

The initial reports claimed the two had been going out for more than a yearprobably speculation based on a rumored romantic encounter in early However, their respective agency quickly confirmed the relationship and specified that the two actors had only made it official a few months prior.

Sad About 'Running Man'? Let These Pics And GIFs Take You Back To Their Best Moments
What are your thoughts guys? I am clueless but I really wanna know the reason behind that deleted photo.
As I said a while back, the recent episode of Running Man reveals the hidden compatibility of Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo through the predictions made by the fortune teller. This episode made a big talk especially to both Monday Couple and SpartAce shippers. MC shippers, although Gary made his exit from the show, does not fully agree with the prediction because Ji Hyo is only for Gary.
But for SpartAce shippers, it's like an answered prayer because 'someone [the fortune teller] finally speaks for their hidden chemistry'. If I were to be asked, they fit as a couple its just that I was stuck with the idea of 'Monday Couple'. The said episode would not be possible if both Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo, in lieu with the surprising news of their departure from the show, did not consider coming back for the fans, friendship with the rest of RM members and the show's sake.
Both agree to continue filming until Running Man's final episode this February but they decided not to accept money from the show anymore. The issue surprised not only the fans but both SJH and KJK as well; until now, all we hear are apologies from the PDs but the reason with their supposed departure is not fully revealed.
Producers said that there would be a re-cast that's why the two are being put on the line but 'why would such 2 hardworking people who gave it their all be the one to be removed?
With the issues being stated, I was left with thoughts. And pls consider my analysis. As producers say, the supposed 're-casting' is about saving the show but is SJH and KJK's performance not enough for the show to catch up with the ratings?
The fortune teller is actually feeding us with bits of information. Hey, KJK should really consider getting married. He looks young but he's not getting any younger now.
