Into Running Man show? Or are you a part of K-variety shows with their Hallyu wave? Don’t miss out on the opportunity to visit Running Man Thematic Center that has just recently established. The spot is now a part of Korean special attractions that are based on the popular program. You can complete missions and collect points too!
Running Man Show
Running Man is a popular variety show in South Korea. It features Korean idols and celebrity guests where they need to complete missions – despite the challenges and adventures. The show is funny, hilarious, and entertaining. No wonder it becomes a huge hit; not only in South Korea but also all over the world where it is aired.
Now, as a fan of the show, you can also experience the challenges by visiting the thematic experience center. It is fun. It is challenging. And it is exhilarating and refreshing. You are going on your own treasure hunt – and laugh all the way! In 60 minutes, you must collect as many coins as possible and be witty. Basically, you just need to have fun. Through the challenges, you can now experience the obstacles that Running Man members experience. Not to mention that you can also boast to your friends through the photos!
Location and Situation
Running Man Thematic Experience Center is located at SM Duty-Free building – in the center of Insadong. You won’t miss it because there is a huge icon of Running Man and the signs. The place opened on November 3rd, 2018, catering to all ages – adults, and kids. You can find six zones where all the missions are available. You will have to complete them all in 60 minutes and then get the R-Points. Get as many as possible for the thrill!
When you enter the center, an electronic wristband would be given to you. It will collect and record the points. Afterward, you continue to the waiting area and choose a team. Instructions would be provided in Korean, but there are also Mandarin and English signs all over so the language barrier shouldn’t be a problem.
Trust me, you won’t feel that 60 minutes have passed by because of the fun and the thrill. You’d be busy trying to complete the missions until you realize that your time is running out. Everything will be similar to the authentic Running Man show. So, what can you get for collecting the points? If you get more than 80, you have the right to a gift and a certificate. But don’t be discouraged even if you don’t get 80. You still get a Running Man badge for souvenir and memento.
