Kim Jong Kook may have just found a potential variety show partner to rival Yoon Eun Hye’s strength. The “Running Man” star recently complimented Seo Eun Soo for her physical prowess.
The upcoming episode of “Running Man” will unveil the strength of the “My Golden Life” star Seo Eun Soo. The actress is set to make her first variety show appearance in the long-running SBS series. Scheduled for release on June 17, teaser clips for the said episode showed the South Korean star fighting off two opponents in a wrestling-type match.
Despite appearing shy and nervous during the guest introduction part of the upcoming “Running Man” episode, Seo Eun Soo shocked the show’s cast members with her competitiveness. The actress was described as an unbeatable woman given her physical strength.
Seo Eun Soo even managed to successfully fend off Song Ji Hyo’s attacks. Dubbed as the SBS series’ “Spart-Ace,” Song Ji Hyo has been known as the show’s female champion. Similar to Kim Jong Kook, the “This Week My Wife is Having an Affair” actress is considered one of the strongest members in “Running Man.” She even defeated Haha, Ji Suk Jin and Lee Kwang Soo in previous wrestling matches of the SBS show.
Meanwhile, “Running Man” cast members compared Seo Eun Soo to Yoon Eun Hye. The “Coffee Prince” actress previously showed off her strength in the 2005 SBS show “X-Man.” She also had a love-line on the said variety series with her with then co-cast member Kim Jong Kook.
Given how Seo Eun Soo displayed her strength against Song Ji Hyo in “Running Man,” Kim Jong Kook even acknowledged how the former reminded him of Yoon Eun Hye. Moreover, the Turbo alum’s other cast members were also impressed with the “My Golden Life” actress’ wrestling skills.
“Running Man” airs every Sunday on SBS.
