Meet the Full Cast of “Running Man Philippines”

In case you missed it, the popular South Korean reality-variety show “Running Man” is getting a local version and the full lineup of cast members joining the series has officially been revealed!

The official Twitter account of “Running Man Philippines” unveiled the poster on Friday, May 27, introducing Glaiza de Castro, Ruru Madrid, Lexi Gonzales, Kokoy De Santos, Angel Guardian, Buboy Villar, and Mikael Daez as its hosts.

“Running Man Philippines” will follow the same format as the original version where the hosts (or MCs) and their celebrity guests will take on challenges and race missions at different locations. It will be co-produced by GMA and South Korean TV network SBS Korea.
