Man, he feels like a woman

Man, he feels like a woman
Naturally, the cast members - Lee, singers Kim Jong Kook and HaHa, host Ji Suk Jin and actress Song Ji Hyo - caused chaos in Hong Kong on Saturday when rabid fans crashed their private party at a club. Host Yoo Jae Suk and rapper Kang Gary will not be attending the fan meet this year.

He will gyrate suggestively in a sexy dress, with armpit hair showing.

And if you don't double up with laughter at his outrageous lack of shame, he will push the boundaries till you crack up anyway.

Korean actor Lee Kwang Soo, of hugely popular Korean variety show Running Man, is just one of its five stars who have embarked on their Asia tour that kicked off in Thailand last month.

Pulling out all the stops just for laughs is what has made Running Man a global phenomenon since its premiere in 2010.

Naturally, the cast members - Lee, singers Kim Jong Kook and HaHa, host Ji Suk Jin and actress Song Ji Hyo - caused chaos in Hong Kong on Saturday when rabid fans crashed their private party at a club.

Host Yoo Jae Suk and rapper Kang Gary will not be attending the fan meet this year.

So what's in store for local fans when the famous five visit Singapore on Nov 29 for their Race Start Season 2 fan meeting?

Here's a sneak peek, courtesy of fans who flew overseas to catch the shows.

TROUBLE MAKER

As the name suggests, expect nothing less from the Easy Brothers - Lee Kwang Soo and Ji Suk Jin.

So nicknamed because their surnames in Korean sound like "easy (lee-ji)" when put together, this pair is famed for their antics on Running Man.

The lights first shone into the crowd so that no one could see the act to come.

Then, it was pandemonium as Lee, 29, and Ji, 48, took to the stage in a parody of Korean duo Trouble Maker's Trouble Maker.

Shaking his booty and pouting his luscious lips, Lee "flirted" with his partner, no holds barred.

Pretending to be oblivious to the thunderous screams, he flashed his armpit hair at the crowd.

As if that was not enough, mock kissing followed, coupled with lots of groping.

Ji held up his own as he finished the performance barely able to hold his own laughter in.

KISS KISS

Providing excellent "fan service" is what has endeared the Running Man cast members to their fans.

In Hong Kong, when HaHa, 35, caused his team to lose the games that fans had been picked to play on stage with the cast members, he sportingly accepted a "severe" penalty.

HaHa had to play the infamous Pepero game, which is often seen on the show.

Pepero is a cookie stick and the game requires two people to chew it at opposite ends till, often than not, their lips touch.

As HaHa was picking the lucky fan's seat number, he kept chanting: "Boy, boy, boy! Let it be a boy!"

Of course, it turned out to be a woman.

Worried that he would cause trouble if she was attached, HaHa, who looked slightly panicky, asked her if she had a boyfriend.

After he found out that her boyfriend was with her, he quickly called him up on stage as well.

But that meant that the woman's boyfriend had to watch awkwardly as his girlfriend smooched her idol, which made it even funnier.

LOVABLE

One of the highlights of the night was popular Korean singer Kim Jong Kook's rendition of Maroon 5's Sunday Morning.

The heart-throb of the group delivered it in perfect English, to the surprise and delight of his female fans in the audience.

Singing his hits like One Man and Loveable, he was almost drowned out by the crowd singing passionately along with him.

Although Kim, 38, had superb vocals, the only rose among the thorns didn't.

But that made Song Ji Hyo, 33, even more lovable.

The tone-deaf beauty bravely performed Lim Jeong Hee's Scent Of A Flower and Leessang's Turn Off The TV to loud cheers of encouragement from everyone whom she had endeared herself to by daring to put her voice out there.
