Since Kang Hoon is less well-known than the other members, the production team prepared a race called “Race for Kang Hoon”. According to the mission, the members had to hear Kang Hoon’s name from citizens in their 30s or older while walking around the streets. During the recording, a citizen, who is a big fan of “Running Man”, said she knew the drama starring Kang Hoon but could not remember the actor’s name.
