[PHOTOS & VIDEO] The Absolute “Uhm Chef” Yoo Ah In Shines In Running Man
Urgently needed: Private Chef named Uhm Hong Sik. Full time job starts immediately!
Many people are dying from too much squealing, squeeing, cuteness, and having their tummies in stitches from laughing so hard since Sunday. The only medicine that can cure them is an absolute taste of stewed beef from the Master Chef who caused the virus! Where where where?
If you see an animated, adorable, cutesy fluffy manchild with a name tag Yoo Ah In from Little Sister’s green team in Running Man, go catch him! He’s the main suspect! Heee!
Yoo Ah In made a breakthrough by adding the first variety show in his life to his resume~ ‘Running Man’. He guested in Running Man Episode 164 Chuseok Special, aired on 22nd September that brought a race mission called ‘Great Inheritance’. The race took place in his hometown Daegu City.
Awkward and shy first, Yoo Ah In quickly adapted to the crazy situation in the funniest variety show on earth and showed his own antics. The creative members accidentally created a new nick for our Master Sik~ “아인이안녕~~! (“Ain-i annyeong~~!”), and this new nick became a buzz word among his fans and colleagues on twitter! Hilarious!
Starting from the first round Yoo Ah In faced the unwelcome thought of being soaked, chucked out of his seat and flown into the water while waving both hands, inspiring the others to give shout out to him: 아인이안녕~~!! (Bye Ain!!). Gee, that’s one of the best puns intended and invented after SIKseekers’ AINyeong HaseYOO!
