We Met Nichkhun on “Running Man”


Remember a while ago when we did the 2PM Interview that fell through? That was quite upsetting, but we were reassured by a lot of people that sooner or later something else would come by our way to make up for it. A couple of weeks ago, it actually did.

We were invited to be on the show “Running Man” with a few other bloggers, including Fat Man Seoul, Roboseyo, and Zen Kimchi. Awesome! They wanted us to be the food judges, somewhat Iron Chef style. Three teams of celebrities made food, and we had to pick the best dish.

The whole experience was quite interesting. We showed up at 2AM to start filming, but we didn’t actually get in front of the cameras until almost 5AM, and then were on for just the judging, which was something like five minutes long. A winner was declared, the winners celebrated, and then voila! Show was over! We got to see a bunch of stars, like 유재석, Lizzy from After School, the guy with the perfect skin from the Sungkyunkwan Scandal, and such. At the end of the show, though, we got to pull aside Nichkhun from 2PM and have him say something to the camera. Martina knew that her school was having their annual festival, and so she asked Nichkhun if he could give the school a shout-out along with some words of encouragement. He was really kind, and agreed to do so. Awesome!

We won’t be able to put the video up ourselves, because it will be copyrighted and YouTube won’t like that, but if we ever do find it online we’ll share it on our Facebook page. If you happen to see it yourselves, please let us know how it went! Our Korean isn’t really that good, so we hope we didn’t embarrass ourselves! Also, we’d like to say thanks again to JB and Annie over at [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for being so thorough with all their Korean subtitle translations! We owe them big time :D

  23. what episode of running man was this?

  24. Hi Simon and Martina, I just tried Vimeo from China, unfortunately we can’t load the website. I assume it is blocked from China as well. Would you mind if we re-upload the Video on our forum or onto Tudou.com or Youku.com which are two Chinese video channels. These channels have control on some videos that people from outside China won’t be able to view.

  25. Hi Martina, I am one of the manager from a fan forum in Chinese which is called Baidu Ain Joongki Bar(
    ) I just saw this video from your Youtube channel. It is very excited to have a chance to watch the Running Man filming from your prospective. We would like more Song Joongki’s fans in China to watch this video and know about Running Man filming scene. However, Youtube is blocked in China so fans cannot watch video on Youtube from China. We would appreciate if you could please allow us to re-upload this video in our forum so that fans could watch this. And we would probably translate this article into Chinese so that the fans could know the whole story. Please let me know if you will be happy with this. Thanks a million!

  26. Saranghae NichKhun Oppa! He’s so awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

  27. He’s so adorable and I love that you put an english meter there. lol! I hope you guys get to do more fun stuff like this in the future!!! =)

  28. Ah you guys are too awesome! :D i love you guys haha bringing the best to us ! thanks you gusy for sharing!

  29. i think the boss of SM Entertainment was also there….idk…i thought i saw him…hehe….

  30. jealous mode here.. what does nick said.. gosh he's so perfect..:P

  31. Nichkhun's English meter rating should be 6, he is thai-chinese american.
    He has 0 korean blood in him.

    But awesome! I am so jealous that you got to also see 유재석 and 하하 from 무한도전. Its my MOST favourite shows! I wanna meet 노홍철 I love him so so much!

    Peace, From fellow canadian in Seoul! <3

  32. Thanks for sharing this video. I'm so jealous that you got to meet Nickhun. I wonder if I'll meet any celebrities while I'm in Korea. I'll be there in a few more days. :)

  33. !!! i've watched this before but i JUST finished watching Sungkwankyun Scandal this morning, so while watching it again (don't know why i did, just felt like it) I recognized Song Joong Ki! ahh, so exciting! :D

    also, i heard nothing of martina mocking anyone. hum…weird that anyone would think that, seeing as how you guys love korea so much…

  34. Just saw the episode yesterday. Too bad your part so limited.
    Did the food really tasty? Cause the cooking process a bit of mess here and there. Hahaha…

  35. After watching the episode there was one thing that struck me.

    Martina was caught criticizing HaHa's lacking english skills.
    It really did not put you in a bright light at all, especially since you did somewhat whisper it.

    I would suggest you think before you speak, and show a bit more respect to other people.

    (You yourself admit that your korean is lacking, but still behave like that.)
    (Does that in your eyes make me an uneducated person if I am not able to speak a non-native language in my own country?
    Personally I consider english to be my fourth language (when it comes to how often I need to use it),
    and I am happy if someone tries to use a regional language, no matter their skill-level, then to go straight for english when they try to communicate.)
