Tribute to "Monday Couple" on Running Man
Running man had been a favour variety show in Korean for almost 7 years but I only start watching them when their program had been cancelled. It was just a very random opportunity that make me watch running man and not because their news on cancellation.
Running man was first aired on July 2010 and I only happen to watch them in April 2017. And like most of the fan out there I was so 100% behind the famous Monday Couple. Kang Gary and Song Ji Hyo but they stories was not all cherry merry.
Below I shared a short 13 minutes on how these couple love developed in the first few episodes where Gary was the aggressor and express his love to Ji Hyo relentlessly till half way 100+ episodes where their on screen relationship was brought to a halt where Ji Hyo dated her company CEO in her real life. Things became awkward between them on running man.
Of course Ji Hyo and her CEO relationship was not long last and they soon become close again. "I lives in Kang Gary" - Song Ji Hyo and they are always for each other on certain Mondays. And you can see that Gary was really all out to take care of Ji Hyo in all the small little things, so sweet.
However, through all the 300+ episodes Ji Hyo had been on a pulling and pushing and on some occasion she betrayed Gary be it because of game choice, tearing of name tag and even choose some other male celebrity on other occasion. Some thing on the show Gary show his fatigue and jealousy towards Ji Hyo in the nearing 300 episodes.
Subsequently, Kang Gary went missing oversea and broke off with his duet partner Leessang and announced that he suddenly got married with a non celebrity lady and the lady was not know to any of his good friend and even his company didn't know of this lady existence. I highly doubt there is this "wife" exist. He wants to cut his tie with all the 7 years of pain and not be remember of all these 7 year with Ji Hyo (this is my personal opinion). He even changed his number and he is currently oversea and no one from running man is able to reach him.
Nonetheless I still support the couple and I support Gary hope he can have a nice life in front of him. Now everything will become the past and the Monday Couple will never come back again I know. This is some of the songs that are always played on running for all the fans that like running man, Monday couple and Kang Gary.
This was the beginning where Gary compose the lyric for Ji Hyo - Leessang Blues
The girl who can't break up, the boy who can't leave - Leessang, it implys that Gary is always the one who can't leave and Ji Hyo will never break up with him
Rememberance - Leessang, the first part there is "Gally Gally", is that Ji Hyo voice?
Turn off the TV - Leessang
You are the answer to a guy like me - Leessang
No matter how I think about it - Sweet Sorrow, this is Asia Prince Lee Kwang Soo theme song on running man, btw he is also my favour person over the monday couple
In running man my top favour is Lee Kwang Soo, he is ranked above the Monday Couple, cause he is a great entertainer and also a very gentleman and hardworking person. Although he is always projected as the giraffe and he is always timid and stupid in the show. But he happen to capture the asian fan by storm :) Continue support running man!!
