Running Man: Episode 150

by gummimochi

*

Today, we meet the Running Man Avengers. Every superhero has an origin story, và it’s no different in varietyland. Yet with so many superpowers to lớn keep track of, it’s hard khổng lồ differentiate who are the superheroes và who are the super-enemies in this universe. Will the heroes join forces to pool their superpowers or will they abuse them to achieve their own goals?

EPISODE 150. Broadcast on June 16, 2013.

*

It’s another ordinary day in varietyland which is about to lớn turn extraordinary when Jae-suk is met with an unexpected surprise: Dong Fury (aka Maknae FD) whose blackface make up reminds me that Korea still has much lớn learn about its offensive displays of stereotypes.

They’re soon joined by Jong-kook, và the servicemen bicker as usual. But there’s no time to đại bại as the world is in need of their superpowers. Thus, it’s their job as team captains to assemble their teams.

We kiểm tra in with our other superheroes who lie in wait, leading normal, everyday lives. Vet Kwang-soo rushes to rescue a giraffe, Rocker Ji-hyo leads her band in song, while Chemist Suk-jin hurries to lớn find the cure for his peculiar condition.

*
*

Time is of the essence and the team captains rush lớn pick up their teammates. It takes some time khổng lồ drive to lớn Haha’s far-off location whereas Jae-suk already as Kwang-soo and Gary in tow when they gọi Ji-hyo.

She smiles when she hears that Gary’s been yelling for her, and when she’s momentarily silent, Kwang-soo asks, “Are you about khổng lồ confess ?” Gary: “Be careful! You’re on speakerphone!” Puhahaha.

*

Jae-suk has three teammates versus Jong-kook’s one by the time they race to lớn Ji-hyo’s location. It’s Jae-suk’s team who arrives first lớn see her rock out to—what else?—a LeeSsang song. Gary takes the mic and we get an impromptu Monday Couple mini-concert.

Their elated mood quickly deflates with one threatening text: a picture of Jong-kook’s bulging bicep. Gulp.

Fear and panic settle on their faces when they run into Spartakooks outside who cheerily calls out “The door’s open!” Jae-suk’s teammates are reluctant to lớn climb back into the car, but vày so anyway… except for the Monday Couple, who dashes towards Jong-kook’s car.

*

Ha, Jae-suk has khổng lồ coax the Easy Brothers to lớn stay when they try to follow. He does, however, remark on the noticeably changed mood: “It feels like a cold winter breeze!”

In the other car, Haha guesses that he’s Iron Man because he was given his own arc reactor earlier. To lớn this, the others wonder what superhero they will become today.

Both teams arrives at the mountainside where Dong Fury is already waiting for them. Kwang-soo guffaws in shock at Maknae FD’s bald appearance (“I thought you were Gil !”), & Haha remarks on his leather trenchcoat: “Aren’t you hot in that?” Pfft.

*
*

However, Dong Fury remains in character as he explains that the superheroes aren’t Avengers just yet; they’ll have to lớn earn their stripes to become a member. So it’s a survival defend-the-flag paintball match, pure & simple, and the losing team will have khổng lồ go through remedial training.

Jong-kook’s team starts off as the offense as they carefully get into position. Kwang-soo fires the first shot, but he quickly raises his hand in defeat when Ji-hyo threatens khổng lồ shoot. Ha. Lớn everyone’s surprise, his next shot eliminates Gary.

Leave it lớn Jong-kook lớn be on the move as he swiftly climbs up the hill, & then Kwang-soo yells as he runs across the battlefield, getting hit by paintball bullets along the way. Ow, that oughta hurt.

*
*

Ji-hyo stays behind as the boys slowly but surely make their way upwards, pressuring their opponents. After a few more shots, Jong-kook loses both of his teammates, và to make matters worse, he’s out of bullets.

Jae-suk’s team takes full advantage of the situation và fires madly at Jong-kook until he too is eliminated.

Elsewhere at the airport, two mysterious young lads arrive & receive their mission.

*
*

Meanwhile, the superheroes-in-training arrive at the action school where a group of stuntmen (and stuntwoman!) puts on an impressive performance. Here, Jong-kook’s team will be put through additional training in order khổng lồ receive their memberships.

Their first game (Killer Dodgeball) ends up with Gary clutching his family jewels in the first few seconds. The other boys do a pretty good job khổng lồ evade oncoming attacks as the timer ticks down until they too are eliminated. Aww, and Ji-hyo gets hit with just five seconds remaining on the clock.

Jae-suk’s team puts on a classic act of bravado which quickly dissipates when the clock starts, & they frantically try to hide behind each other. Suk-jin makes an impressive save, only khổng lồ be tagged out seconds later. Then we see a glimpse of another arrival…

*

I’m not the only one who’s getting Secret Gardenflashbacks with the second training course, right? The teams are tasked khổng lồ beat the stuntman’s 71(!) sit-ups in a minute in a relay. Jong-kook’s team puts their backs into it (and Haha’s hair flails back-and-forth, ha), but even with Jong-kook’s last spurt, they’re just two short.

Then it’s up to lớn Jae-suk’s team lớn show us how it’s done, but Jong-kook’s team can only gape at their strained faces: “You’re so ugly up close!” Ha, then Suk-jin has to hit his own head in order to lớn pull himself up. I’m not sure if I feel safe knowing these guys are out there khổng lồ protect me.

Thankfully, Jong-kook’s team pulls through on their next turn and receive their superhero memberships. Jae-suk: “Weren’t you planning on giving them to lớn us anyway?”

*

We’ve arrived at the final mission location where the superheroes finally learn of their alter-egos & superpowers:

Jae-suk: Captain Running Man (Captain RM) whose water-gun/shield can enlarge opponents’ nametags.Kwang-soo: Giraffe Eye whose arrows can bring misfortune khổng lồ his opponents.Suk-jin: Dr. Ji who can transform into the Hulk when angry.Jong-kook: Kook Thor whose hammer can obstruct his opponents’ vision.Haha: Iron Ha who has all of Iron Man’s capabilities lớn fly, fire weapons, & high-tech gadgets.Ji-hyo: black Mung who can steal other superheroes’ powers once they’re eliminated.Gary: Spider Gary who can shoot webs & has another mysterious power.

Whew. Let’s see if we can keep them all straight.

*

I love how everyone bursts out laughing at Captain RM’s outfit and I don’t blame them—the man has a bunch of R stickers on his person. Kwang-soo: “Are you Pororo?” lượt thích the famous cartoon character penguin?

It hadn’t occurred to lớn me that Dr. Ji’s transformation might take some time as he starts running in place to lớn raise his heart rate. Và then Iron Ha slips into his lair khổng lồ pick up some essential gadgets.

*

Black Mung’s ability comes with another stipulation: She’ll need to lớn mark her targets in order to lớn gain their powers later on. So she distracts Dr. Ji with compliments to lớn keep his anger at bay, và to leave her mark. Hilariously, he responds lớn her atypical aegyo behavior with “Just act like you normally do!”

She then wraps her arm around Spider Gary, who turns lớn her: “What’s the meaning of this?” Ack, it’s been so long since we’ve heard that line!

Just then, a sound blares through the speakers khổng lồ announce the arrival of our mysterious guests: the 2PM Twins (Taecyeon & Chansung) where one is invincible and the other is not.

*
*

But that’s not all—another familiar musical introduction rings through the speakers. Their suspicions are confirmed with Chu Sung-hoon aka The Fighter‘s entrance. He has three chances to spar with an opponent in the ring. Huh, so are our guests the superheroes or the super-enemies?

The Avengers quickly relay the Fighter’s arrival lớn each other & Captain RM gripes: “Why does he always come at 4 AM?” For now, it’s imperative that they stick together.

Then it cracks me up when they all peer over the railing to lớn get a look at the Fighter, who cheerily calls back, “I’m here khổng lồ bother Jong-kook!”

There’s yet another musical introduction and everyone’s confused faces express my thoughts exactly—who ELSE is here? Don’t we already have enough superpowers flyin’ around here?

*
*

Meet martial arts director Jung Doo-hong (Fighter in the Wind, Berlin) aka Master Jung who knows everyone else’s superpower. That’s everyone, right?

It’s only now that the Avengers have noticed the black Mung’s marks, and their ensuing argument echoes through the mall. Down below, Master Jung comments: “Sounds like a fight broke out.” Will this group khung an alliance or turn on each other?

Everyone’s suspicion radars are now at high alert. Captain RM is the first to lớn use his superpower on his own, và Giraffe Eye’s nametag is swapped out for a larger one. Then Kook Thor suffers the same fate.

*
*

With knowledge at his disposal, Master Jung throws an offhand remark that Giraffe Eye was hit with water. But he’s sharp enough not lớn disclose his own ability to lớn the others.

Meanwhile, the 2PM Twins roam the mall, and Chansung mentions that the cast’s motto is to betray each other. Ha, that’s so true. That must mean they’re running around by themselves & they zero in on unsuspecting Spider Gary.

Spider Gary’s “web” misses but the other Avengers have heard the commotion. They’re too late to lớn come to lớn his aid and the twins eliminate him. It’s only when they leave that we see Spider Gary’s hidden ability… và his still-attached nametag drags behind him.

*
*

The twins approach Iron Ha, who finally shows off his ability lớn fly. It’s a neat trick but why do I get the feeling that Haha will be at the mercy of his attached wires today?

Then Spider Gary’s reappearance throws them for a loop. I love their “Didn’t we eliminate him five minutes ago?” faces. They’re also adorably gullible khổng lồ the Look! Over there! trick.

But Spider Gary isn’t out of the woods yet as the Fighter gives chase… và then calls for a fight.

*

Next thing we know, Spider Gary & the Fighter face off in the ring. But they circle around each other for so long that the one-minute limit passes and Spider Gary is sent off scot-free.

It’s definitely not a superpower you can hide, so Sung-hoon’s attempts lớn downplay it that it’s nothing are pointless. But the combination of a wasted opportunity and with Jong-kook nowhere in sight nag at Sung-hoon’s growing annoyance.

Speaking of whom, Kook Thor is hidden somewhere in the mall at a loss with his super-sized nametag.

*
*

Dr. Ji persistently tries khổng lồ raise his heart rate, và even asks for Giraffe Eye’s help khổng lồ stir his temper. But the unlucky arrows work against him và Dr. Ji is led to lớn a relaxation room. Hahaha.

He tries once more by doing various exercises, & this time it works. The beast inside him awakens… và the Hulk is ANOTHER guest? I thought we were done with all the Act 3 guest intros!

The Hulk aka Kim Dong-hyun, a UFC fighter, emerges on the scene. Everyone makes a run for it, including the Fighter, who recognizes his hoobae.

*

Now that is one serious superpower. At least the newest addition remains in character as he clambers up the escalator. The Hulk grabs a tight hold on Spider Gary, who panics lớn whip out his web… which comes out all tangled.

They tussle for a few more seconds until the Hulk pounces, rips off his nametag, và disconnects it from the cord. Now Gary’s eliminated.

The Fighter’s surprise appearance catches Captain RM off-guard, và he even drops his water-gun. Oh no! The Fighter calls for a match but once they’re in the ring, he’s confused by Jae-suk’s taunts.

*
*

They’re joined by a few other heroes và Iron Ha temporarily fends everyone off with his glove that shoots sparks. The minute quickly passes, and the Fighter chases the 2PM twins down the hall.

Iron Ha tries lớn evade his captors by flying to the second floor… where the Fighter is waiting for him. He cries: “Bring me down! Bring me down!” But with both floors occupied by super-enemies, he’s left floating in the air. Hahaha.

He touches ground a little later and the 2PM Twins attack once he’s out of sparks. Aw, he’s easily eliminated.

*
*

Meanwhile, Kook Thor remains in his thunder pit as the Fighter and Captain RM cautiously approach. But before he can gọi upon the heavens, the Fighter jumps & eliminates him. Afterward, Jong-kook complains that he won’t have any airtime this week. But maybe you should give that injured leg a rest!

Dr. Ji works hard to transform into the Hulk once more, but the Fighter appears to eliminate him before he gets the chance.

Only three Avengers remain khổng lồ battle their enemies, and Captain RM confiscates Giraffe Eye’s last arrow so that he doesn’t waste it. As they bicker, the super-enemies are busy ganging up on each other.

Even though Taecyeon’s nametag is ripped off, he’s still the game. Ah, so Chansung is the weak link.

*

Two of the Avengers are chased by the Fighter, và their alliance is quickly dissolved as Giraffe Eye is eliminated. Then Sung-hoon stops to lớn say that he could have sworn he just saw the Hulk pass by, khổng lồ which Jae-suk is lượt thích Who??

Once it registers that the Hulk is indeed the UFC fighter, Jae-suk turns onto the staff: “Are you kidding me right now?!” Oh god, THANK YOU for saying it.

But at the mention of his name, the Hulk comes charging through, và they make a run for it. Pfft, I love that he stops long enough to lớn explain who is behind his transformation: “It was Ji-hyo!”

*
*

The Hulk is reluctant lớn turn his back on his sunbae to pick on smaller fry. The possibility of the transformation flies over Captain RM’s head, and he solicits Taecyeon’s help. But the Hulk makes a run for it, leaving Jae-suk lớn face two enemies on his own.

Jae-suk does a fairly good job against them, but he quickly grows tired and breathes heavily, “Why can’t you be eliminated ?”

That’s because the other 2PM Twin is currently running from the Hulk. Chansung desperately calls out khổng lồ his hyung, và the Hulk in turn yells, “I’m just fine!”

Both sides struggle against their opponents & at the kết thúc of it, both Captain RM and Chansung are eliminated.

*
*

Now only black Mung remains và her two enemies make sure to stay close so she can’t transform into the Hulk. Sung-hoon hints at her lớn let the men duel it out, và she agrees on the condition that neither man doesn’t get upset should she eliminate them.

Ji-hyo knows her limits but she’s not going down without a fight, so she asks khổng lồ face Sung-hoon as long as he keeps one hand behind his back. He agrees to her terms và they face off.

Sung-hoon grabs her nametag just as Ji-hyo pulls her towards him lớn grab his… và they both let go.

*

Then Sung-hoon grabs hold of her nametag once more, but he’s surprised when it won’t come off as easily as he hoped. But Ji-hyo persistently tries to lớn reach across his back… until her nametag rips off. Dayum, give this girl a medal.

Now the Fighter calls upon his superpower for the last time to lớn face Master Jung in the ring. Master Jung is lightning quick to lớn reach across Sung-hoon’s back, but misses. They engage in another struggle, & Sung-hoon gains the upper hand… và finishes it for the win.

*

But wait—we’re transported to lớn a secret room where Giraffe Eye sits with Dong Fury, who is displeased at the Avengers’ lack of teamwork and poor performance. He deems every Avenger (apart from Ji-hyo) unsuitable for the field.

Then he mysteriously adds, “There’s no time. There’s a war approaching…” & leaves a flabbergasted Giraffe Eye in his wake. This story is to lớn be continued…
