All of SHINee’s Min-ho’s Appearance in Running Man!
Shinee’s visual, main rapper, and vocalist, who was born on December 1, 1991, is Choi Min-ho. He was a good-looking teenager who has grown up into a handsome adult that makes hearts melt for him. Minho is well-known as an idol who love sports, which is the result of growing up with a dad who’s a soccer coach. That trait is in his blood and has become one more cool thing about Shinee’s Minho.
In this article, Byeol Korea will give you a rundown of everything about Minho’s appearances on Running Man He[‘s been on episodes 75, 129, 254 (as The Finale Gakekeeper), and 323, and we’ll also take a look at Minho’s latest news.
Running Man episode 75 was broadcast on January 1, 2012, with special guests from various idol groups. There was Sulli (F(x)x ex-member), Sohee (Wonder Girls ex-member), Hyorin (Sistar ex-member), Shinee’s Minho, and Super Junior’s Siwon. In this episode, PD Nim made a New Year special race, called ‘Mathematics Race’, in which the Running Man cast members would be partnered with idol guests. They were divided intofour teams. Sulli’s team (Haha, Sulli, Gary), Sohee’s team (Yoo Jae-suk, Sohee, Kim Jong-kook), Hyorin’s team (Ji Seok-jin, Hyorin, Lee Kwang-soo), and Ji hyo’s team (Siwon, Ji hyo, Minho).
Before the race started, everyone had been gathered at Gimpo Airport, South Korea and the teams were sorted out. After the teams were formed, they started the race, walking to parking area and running to find the Running Man flag to choose a two-digit number and drive to the next location. The next location was Aiins World Theme Park, in Bucheon. At the theme park, each team had to go around the world (map) and answer PD Nim’s questions correctly to pass and continue to the next location. The third location was a restaurant, and the group was divided into two teams, with one group going to a Vietnamese restaurant, and the other going to an Italian one. The race would end with the final mission in the last location, which was at Deungchondong Broadcasting Hall SBS. In the final mission, each team had to find math symbols that were hidden by Running Man staff. The answer to the last question must be equal 1 if they match with the symbols. Finally, Sulli’s team became the winner of the race.
During race, Minho was partnered with his senior and label-mate, Super Junior’s Siwon, and Running Man member Song Ji-hyo. They were a perfect team, and the funniest of all the teams. Minho was close with his teammates, without being awkward. He even made a joke with Ji hyo, and cautiously asked how old she was. She answered that they were a decade apart (she’s 31 and he’s 21), and her two princes exclaimed, “What, you’re not in your 20s? You definitely don’t look like [you’re in your 30s].” They added that they especially wanted to be on her team.
Minho, Ji hyo, and Siwon united well as a team. In the second mission, when two members had to carry the third member on a doll boat, Minho and Siwon carried Ji hyo. She kept apologizing to both of them, because the famous hallyu stars should be carrying her on their shoulders along with the doll boat. However, the guys told Ji hyo that she was very light, and were joking with each other. How cute they are.
Minho’s personality is high-spirited and he doesn’t like to lose a game. He would fight and give his best to be a winner, such as during the last mission in this race, when he approached Kim Jong-kook without hesitation. Did Minho just overtake Spartakooks? The other teams crowded in, picking off clues like a pack of hungry hyenas, leaving Jong-kook vulnerable. Just like that, Ji-hyo’s team’s luck turned around as Minho hunted down clues all across the building.
At the end of the game, Ji hyo’s team was almost the winner, before losing their chance in front of their nose. The PD belatedly told Ji-hyo’s team that they could have won (by simply moving a parenthesis) and Minho exploded at the victory stolen from under his nose. However, Minho, Siwon, Ji hyo, and other teams enjoyed the race very much.
