In a recent episode of the popular SBS variety show ‘Running Man,’ the cast members found themselves in disbelief over singer Kim Jong Kook’s unique approach to saving money. The episode, which could aptly be titled “Reusing Wet Wipes Too?” highlighted the humorous and unexpected interactions among the cast.
The Market Adventure
Titled ‘Running Man is Here – Village Edition,’ the episode followed the cast as they embarked on an adventure in a local market. HaHa’s excitement was infectious as he reveled in the opportunity to explore the market with his fellow cast members. Yoo Jae Suk shared in his enthusiasm, acknowledging that the experience was a chance to enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
Kim Jong Kook’s Playful Jabs
Meanwhile, Kim Jong Kook, Song Ji Hyo, Jeon So Min, and Yang Se Chan set out on a mission to uncover a hidden cash prize. Amidst their journey, Kim Jong Kook playfully teased Yoo Jae Suk, Ji Suk Jin, and HaHa for their eagerness to locate the prize. He humorously pondered whether this kind of enthusiasm was a natural occurrence once individuals reached their fifties.
Kim Jong Kook’s Unconventional Frugality
The spotlight then turned to Kim Jong Kook’s unconventional approach to saving money, leaving his fellow cast members both amused and bewildered. Jeon So Min pointed out that the trio of Yoo Jae Suk, Ji Suk Jin, and HaHa were all married men, implying that their excitement to visit the market might be due to their spouses’ potential nagging about snacking habits.
The humor escalated when Song Ji Hyo suggested that Kim Jong Kook would join the “married men’s team” once he got married. In response, Kim Jong Kook humorously questioned whether there was anything left to do besides exercise in married life. Jeon So Min joined the banter by advising Kim Jong Kook to change his pants, playfully referencing his habit of wearing the same pair.
The Surprise Twist – Reusing Wet Wipes
The conversation took an unexpected turn when Kim Jong Kook revealed his rather unconventional frugality strategies. He confessed to using towels for extended periods and reusing them after they had been dried. He went even further, admitting to repurposing wet wipes. Jeon So Min’s reaction was a mix of surprise and disgust at the thought of using wet wipes multiple times. Kim Jong Kook’s unique perspective on water conservation by creatively reusing items added a comedic twist to the episode.
