The members (usually with celebrity guests) go to various culturally significant places in Korea and have to perform various tasks in order for their team or themselves individually to win the game and be eliminated from punishment. In later episodes, there is no punishment, simply winning or losing, and sometimes members have to find the guests instead of playing together with them from the beginning.

Both feature Yu Jae Seok. Sometimes Happy Together 3 has a guest from Running Man as well. That said, they are really different from one another. But I feel that the funny vibe between the members of Running Man is the same as with the host of Happy Together.

I'm super attached to the 7012 original cast so a second season with completely different members would've destroyed me and I don't think I would've watched further. I honestly feel so glad that it isn't ending and Jongkook and Jihyo remain in the show even if it means getting new members. Infinity Challenge has managed to survive by adding new members and keeping some of the original ones, so why shouldn't Running Man? They definitely have to change the crew though and potentially reset some of the formats because many episodes are extremely repetitive and boring even if the cast does all it can.

@yumichan86 @blackpearl decision changed into giving them another chance, after "Korean an international fans" were commenting a lot on it, and asking not to end the show.

I kept thinking since a while that they need a new member to refresh things, but I don't thing they chose well. We'll see but the truth is that with no changes in production team, new members won't help. RM is still going down.

Lol so I thought they were supposed to stop filming in February? It's April now and they're still going? What is the truth?

I don't remember Yang Se Chan's appearance on RM at all.
Adding new members feels weird but they have to change something because the show keep going downhill.

i thought running man was going to end?

I'm sorry to say this, but I feel like Infinity Challenge has recruited the funny brother and we got stuck with the annoying one. I totally do not agree that Yang Se Chan had anything to do with a "sharp rating boost" in the episode he appeared in as I can barely remember his appearance. Jeon So Min on the other hand is likable, but I still think that the decision to recruit anyone (of them) as a new member is out of the blue. Yes, the program needs some changes, but adding or removing a member won't help the program at all.

Adding two new members out of a sudden?? I am totally not okay with this!
If they want to change the format + the cast, they should have just ended the show as they planned in the first place and began a second season.

Honestly, ever since late December, I can't look at Running Man with the same eyes and I don't find it as funny and as entertaining as before.

As everybody I was sad the show was going to end, though I knew it's a time. I don't know what to think now. They should at least get a new member...
