Camaraderie keeps fan meet Running

Camaraderie keeps fan meet Running
Song Ji Hyo, 32, and Gary (Kang Hee Gun), 35.

Once the resident couple of the well-loved South Korean variety show Running Man took to the stage, their Singapore audience knew exactly what to do.

Echoing through the Singapore Expo Hall were relentless chants of "bbo bbo", the Korean word for kiss.

Gary Kang, one half of the "Monday Couple", a label that has stuck through constant teasing on the show, gladly obliged by pretending to give a peck on the hand of his bashful co-host Song Ji Hyo, 32.

Such was the spontaneity of the five Running Man stars at the two-hour Singapore Running Man Fan Meeting, which drew about 3,000 fans on Saturday night.

Some 4,000 fans had earlier thronged an autograph session at Jurong Point to catch a glimpse of the hosts, who were in Singapore together for the first time.

The full-house crowd at the fan meet was clearly familiar with the signature cheers and inside jokes of the hosts, who included the cheeky HaHa, the sinewy Kim Jong Kook and the bumbling Jee Seok Jin.
