Running Man Gets Animated Series

It’s been a long while since I’ve posted here. I just got very busy with my job (and sort of forgot about blogging). But I came back to tell you about a new Running Man series seemingly in the works.

Here is the teaser video:

According to the intro, the series will be animated and (I assume) will air on that channel.

The title is “JiHyo’s Running Men,” which makes me guess that the show isn’t being produced by Running Man and the name is meant to avoid copyrights. Actually, having said that, I’m not sure “Running Man” is copyrightable. After all, there were never any suits against the show for blatantly borrowing the name from the popular movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. They simply dropped the word “The” from the name and carried on.

Anyway, I’m very curious to see what this show is about. I don’t see how it could possibly recreate the interactions between the members of the real show, so I suspect it will be something different entirely.

I’ll just have to wait and see. There’s no release date, so I’ll have to remember to check back.
