Korean variety show Running Man is known for its outrageous and hilarious challenges. Some of the funniest challenges from Running Man are the competitions which parody well known Korean Dramas. If you are a Running Man newbie, a faithful viewer, or a drama fan you will not want to miss the hilarious drama parodies listed below!

1. That Winter the Wind Blows


A moody melodrama, That Winter the Wind Blows brought a lot of tears and emotional scenes to drama watchers. For a more lighthearted look at the concept check out Running Man’s take on the story – titled That Winter the Typhoon Blows. This parody comes complete with the cast dressed in the same style that made Zo In Sung’s character so nice to look at. The style, once displayed by the Running Man cast, becomes something else indeed.


2. The Heirs


The Heirs is one of the most buzzed about shows of 2013 (if not the most buzzed about show) so it is only fitting that Running Man recently aired their own version of the story. Instead of Lee Min Ho we were given Lee Kwang Soo - but never fear as Park Shin Hye was a guest (as were her Heirs co-stars Woo Bin and Choi Jin Hyuk). There is also a plunger pull challenge. Yep, sounds weird, I know. But it is hilarious.

3. I Hear Your Voice


I Hear Your Voice had stellar ratings, dominating this year’s summer drama season. Running Man, complete with guest star Jung Woong In (who played the bad guy in I Hear Your Voice), devoted an entire episode to the same courtroom antics that made the drama so popular. Of course Running Man’s time in the courtroom was less dramatic and more side splitting (with a whole lot of made up legal jargon to boot). FD Go, the hilarious Running Man production worker, appears as the judge.

4. Don’t Walk, But Date

In episode 108 Running Man created its very own drama, titled Don’t Walk, But Date. A mash up of the drama format, this Running Man original takes parodying dramas to the next level. With a script that can change at a moment’s notice, it is anyone’s guess how this story turns out. Romantic Comedy Queen, Gong Hyo Jin, and Lee Joon guest-star, adding their talents to this episode.

Lore spends her time trying to find more time to watch dramas (she is in desperate need of at least a year so she can get through her ever growing to-watch list). So far she has had little success. You can find her rambling on about Running Man, Dramas, and assorted Korean varieties at Stone Cities alongside her blogging bestie E-Kun. You can also find her on twitter, struggling with the 140 character limit.
