Monday Moments (2)

Monday Moments is a meme dedicated to my favorite Running Man couple, Kang Gary and Song Jihyo. It’s where I pick out any Monday Couple moment from any episode of the show or even from events outside RM that made me laugh, warmed my heart, and gave me the good “dugeun, dugeun” goosebumps. (Note: Monday is usually the day when Running Man films its episodes so when these two were teased as a couple, they were dubbed as the ‘Monday Couple’.)

 

Episode 130: Gary: “Jihyo, It’s not time yet.”

 

This is the fun bit in the Reincarnation episode when the RM members were still ‘in 1938’ at the then Seoul City Hall. The members were given different locations in the building where they can find a key. Gary has found his and then runs into Jihyo in the hallway.

Jihyo asks him if he’s found his and in Gary’s true fashion, he lies but in his very obvious ‘I-can’t-lie-for-the-life-of-me’ way, which Jihyo could see right through.

Jihyo was about to let it go when Gary drops his key on the floor and didn’t even know it. It was a good thing Jihyo was kind enough to let him know.

When it seems like Jihyo won’t give him back his key, Gary goes into this semi-panic mode, jumping up and down in anxiety, which draws laughter not only from Jihyo but from viewers as well. He kept saying, “Jihyo, it’s not that time yet.” LoL.

In the end, Jihyo gives him another chance and returns his key. And Gary vows that he will help her until the end. How did that go down? Well, let’s just say that Gary has learned a few lessons in winning an individual game. 

 

What did you guys think about this Monday Moment? 

I always enjoy seeing Jihyo laugh so hard because of Gary. I think she really finds him very, very funny, which makes them so adorable. When I went to South Korea in early October this year, I was able to go the Seoul Metropolitan Library, which was the old Seoul City Hall and where they shot this episode. It was a very nice experience for me as a Running Man fan that I got to visit places where the members had been. 🙂

As a pilot post, I think I’m going to start from the very beginning, the episode that hinted at the greatness this couple would become.

Episode 8: Gary, do you like Jihyo?

When Jihyo was asked what she was good at and she was thinking about her answer, Gary supplies one for her.

Gary says Jihyo has lovely eyes.

Everybody was like, ‘Wait a minute. What’s going on?’ Hehe.

Gary tries to change the subject. And succeeds.

Jihyo’s just smiling broadly and genuinely. The first of many because of Gary. ❤

 

 

What did you guys think about this Monday Moment? Did you expect it to be the start of a really awesome onscreen pairing?

Song Lyrics: Brave by Sara Bareilles

You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up
Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
When they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

Everybody’s been there,
Everybody’s been stared down by the enemy
Fallen for the fear
And done some disappearing,
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

And since your history of silence
Won’t do you any good,
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
See you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you

 

 

It’s a wonderful song with an even more wonderful message.

 

Below is Sara’s live performance of this song. I actually love this version better than the original. The piano as the only accompaniment lends a stronger delivery for a performance.
