Classic Post: Behind-the-scenes at Running Man

Jennifer “Fatman Seoul” Flinn, Roboseyo, Martina and Simon from Eat Your Kimchi and I were on Running Man on SBS on November 28th. Taping was in the wee hours of the morning at Korea House. We were like Iron Chef judges for their cooking competition. Eat Your Kimchi did a video of it, along with taking to Nichkhun of 2PM.

Part of the plot–did I just imply there was a plot–was that Yu Je-suk’s team, the red one, made a sauce that was god awfully salty. Rocks could float in it. Seeing how they made the sauce now scares me even more. Glad I didn’t see it at the time.

I did a behind-the-scenes video too–in the style of Running Man and most over post-produced Korean TV celebrity shows.

  1. Tell us more of your experience at Running Man. I watched that show last night and found your site today. You guys were great! Your Korean was pretty good too. How many years have you been living in Korea? Good luck with your blog and I will visit often!

    • Thank you! I’ve lived in Korea for almost 7 years. My food Korean is
      good, but I’m not so good in other areas. It’s a bit embarrassing.
      Running Man was a lot of waiting. But what fascinated us was the size of
      the crew. That had to have been hell to edit. We were stashed away in
      another room while the other parts of the show were taping. But we did
      get to see the cooking part. One bit they cut out was Simon and Martina
      singing “I’ll Be Back” for Nichkhun. That was funny. It was strange
      being on a TV show in front of people that I usually see on TV. It was
      like the most 3-D TV show you could get. But mostly, I was nervous
      because I was the first one on the panel and had to follow Yu Je-suk’s
      Korean, which is really fast. Thankfully, Nichkhun interpreted some of
      the harder bits. He’s a good kid. He’s going places. 🙂
