Shin Min Ah. From the beginning, I’ve looked for her to appear on Running Man. Never thought she would. I was very surprised to see her in the preview for episode 215. The last time I saw her she was playing a resurrected ghost in Arang and the Magistrate. Now, she wants to get married…to Gary!
I enjoyed the episode, though I think they played the song game too long. The end game was a throw-back to the early years when Jong Kook and the kids in blue used to hunt down the pink team. This time it was a hunt for wedding gifts. I’ve never particularly cared for the Blue vs Pink hunt-to-the-death game, and this variation didn’t change my mind about it. But for the most part, the episode was fun.
I will say Shin Min Ah seemed particularly delicate. She was definitely as timid as expected (she always gives me that impression in every talk show or interview I see her in). Nothing aggressive about her, which unfortunately doesn’t make her well-suited for Running Man. And it seemed the games were devised to accommodate her mild nature (no mud wrestling, food-gorging, or acupuncture mat). But none of that mattered. She was delightful.
