Taeyang Talks About His Running Man Experience
Big Bang‘s Taeyang commented on his experience on popular variety show ‘Running Man’, and how the show brought out his competitive side.
When the ‘Running Man’ games began, Taeyang is reported to have showed off his excellent athleticism as well as his extreme patience to stay silent when the opposing team members were looking for him. Apparently they had such a hard time that Haha, a regular on ‘Running Man’, screamed out Taeyang’s name in English, “Sun!”
Taeyang stated, “The game was harder than I expected. I planned on ripping off the name label of the Running Man as soon as the game started, but suddenly they went to a defensive position so I had to forget my plans. The time that I hid underneath the table felt so long that I couldn’t even breathe. When I came face to face with the ‘Running Man’, I was so nervous that I felt like my heart would explode, it was a totally different dimension.”
This episode of ‘Running Man’ will feature Big Bang and broadcasts on March 4th KST.
