From singer to actor to show hosts, Lee Seung Gi is not just a man of high versatility. He joins various shows like KBS’s 2 Days & 1 Night as well as co-hosting Strong Heart. Other shows include Master In the House and Busted! as his latest variety show projects.

He is known as the male sweetheart in the Korean entertainment industry. He has charm, playfulness and humour that goes along with his handsome face. Even if the shows are scripted, he doesn’t shy away from showing a more realistic version of himself which is both relatable and will make you laugh out loud.

2. Song Ji Hyo

Her first drama Goong gained her instant popularity and flourishing roles as an actor. But Song Ji Hyo is not jsut a pretty face. After gaining long-term position in variety show Running Man, ‘Mong’ Ji Hyo becomes a household name. The Korean beauty is not afraid of going out barefaced especially with the constant beauty standards in the country. She is not afraid to show her candid tomboy-ish persona as well as her grit.

Despite being the only female member of the popular show, Ji Hyo gets along extremely well and having familial relationship with the rest of the cast members. Fans applauded her charm, fierceness that guarantees entertainment for the show. Other variety shows the actress participated in include Song Ji Hyo’s Beauty View, Song Ji Hyo’s Beautiful Life, and Pajama Friends.

3. Cha Eun Woo

This actor recently makes a name for himself in popular dramas like My ID Is Gangnam Beauty, Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung, and  True Beauty. But his handsome face makes it to shows like Law of the Jungle, Handsome Tigers, and Master In the House.

Opposite to his actor persona, Cha has charm and charisma in variety shows. His candid and cheerful personality earned him a rookie award at the 2020 SBS Entertainment Awards for Master in The House.

4. Lee Kwang Soo

This actor needs no introduction. Like Song Ji-hyo, Lee has been a long-term cast of Running Man until his recent departure from the show due to health problems. However, he will be forever iconic with his antics. His silliness and spontaneity are why in every variety show, he is the hysterical member.

He was in dramas like It’s Okay, That’s Love, Confession, and Inseparable Bros. He also took part in the Netflix variety show Busted! as a main member during the first and third seasons, as well as being a guest in season two.

Even if he’s leaving Running Man, fans can still see him in other shows as well. And where there’s Lee Kwang Soo, there will always be hysterical laughter.
