WATCH with English subs: Rain blows into China and competes on Running Man China 4
South Korean game/variety show Running Man, ongoing since 2010, has become one of the longest-running shows in the country's history and has reached massive popularity all across Asia. China's spin-off version, 奔跑吧兄弟 (Hurry Up, Brother, a.k.a. Running Man China), is in its 4th season and has called on über-entertainer Rain to give its 6th episode some Korean "flava"!
Running Man China's original cast members for Season 4 are Deng Chao (team leader), Angelababy, "Jerry" Li Chen, "Michael" Chen He, "Ryan" Zheng Kai, Wong Cho Lam, and popular cutie Lu Han. They were stoked when surprise guest Rain sauntered out to his "LA Song" tune. After giving him and additional guests, singers Tan Wei Wei and Jason Zhang, a nice welcome, everyone split into teams and it was on like Donkey Kong.
Having guest-starred on past episodes of Running Man in South Korea and in Australia, Rain (a.k.a. Jung Ji Hoon) showed a healthy appetite for Blue Team versus Yellow Team competition. Looks like a great time was had by all!
Episode 6, previously recorded at the end of April, aired this past Friday the 20th on Zhejiang TV. You can watch the full hour and a half long episode in all its hilarity below, compliments of the official Running Man China YouTube channel, with English subtitles!
