GMA Entertainment Group & SBS Korea Team for Running Man Philippines


GMA Entertainment Group and SBS Korea have joined forces to co-produce the variety game show Running Man Philippines.

Running Man, one of South Korea’s most popular variety shows, features top Korean stars in the cast. It also welcomes special guests such as Jackie Chan, Tom Cruise and Henry Cavill, who compete in fun challenges, games and races in different locations. It has been on air for almost a decade.

Felipe L. Gozon, GMA chairman and CEO, said: “We are very delighted to partner with a great institution in content. We know that Running Man is a top-rated program not only in South Korea, but in other countries as well. And we hope to make it a top-rater, too, here in the Philippines.”

Kim Yong Jae, SBS Korea’s chief global contents officer, said: “This is the first time to co-produce this show in the Philippines. We experienced big success in Vietnam, China, and we are expecting a lot here, too. We are adapting the Filipino culture and artists, so Filipino fans have a lot to be excited for.”
