Kang Gary (Leessang) - Running Man

Have been watching Running Man for the past few weeks. I'm totally addicted and more importantly impressed by the production team on how they designed the games and put in effort in making the show as entertaining as possible. When I first watch Running Man on TV, I thought it is a cruel game because I saw fear in member's faces when they were being hunt, especially on 1:9 game where 9 people chasing for one player. To think of that fear within, it makes my adrenaline rush.

As I watch more and more episodes, it changed my mindset and I feel like each episode is like a challenge for members, or more often challenge for humans. How do you intelligently play in the games and you breakthrough your limit each time. The variety of games amazed me. Sometimes those games really made me speechless when PD introduce it, like mission impossible, it seems no way to succeed. But again, running man made it! Whatever challenges it is, they unite and conquer their fear and challenge the mission! Really have to salute them on this, especially when you see they always do their best in every mission.


I get to see more and more sides of each member, their strength and weaknesses in playing different games, their characters and personalities, their friendship and the strong bonding within this family. I'm totally amazed by how they are supporting each other everyday in every way they could. Just to think how beautiful it is of human relationship and interaction, we all live in this world surrounding by our circles of friends and families. We too, need to be supported by people surrounding us and will support them in every way that we could. When I see how they intelligently plan out their strategies in winning games,  I just feel like seeing how we are surviving in this society. You have partners, have your own missions, you switch partners with the ultimate goal in your mind, you trust your partners, you reasonably suspect your partners or sometimes you just have to work alone (especially when you are spy haha). And out of the games, we are all one family and we support each other lives.

And of course, it makes me interested in understanding more about running man members. Kang Gary has drawn my attention the most! I like the peacefulness in him, or perhaps I should say the way he live life with his principles. He is always humble and doing his best in playing games. When he promise someone, he will not betray even though he knew his partner might betray him. He admit his fear and he said that is the only time you can really be brave. And of course, he doesn't tell lies (The truman show just came into my mind, hilarious! if you do know what I mean haha!). Perhaps he looks innocent at times, but you will see the reason behind it if you get to know the more of him. He play hard for winning but the result of winning or losing is not the most important thing for him, the process is more important as long as he did his best. And of course, he never fails to make audience laugh whenever the camera catch him!



Gary further rocks my world with his music and perhaps his life, as he always say, his music is about his life and people around him. His powerful lyrics and Leessang amazing music never fails to stun my mind. Like one of the netizens described , "Their songs are neither melodramatic nor hyperactive. It's the kind that you will jump to, nod your head or to wave your hand to. There is always an erratic mixture of feelings. It pushes you up with their beats but they break you apart with their lyrics. They cradle you with their soft tune but fire you up with their angry words. Their songs talk about love but subliminally scream about the rotting popular culture. They beat their chest with their success only to highlight their failures". And I really have to agree to this one particular paragraph, "Listening to their albums is like a trip to a weightless dimension. They will pull your body and mind to different directions and you are helpless about it. It's the cleanest high you will ever experience".


I'm not sure whether he is the same in real life as he is in Running Man and in doing his music, but one thing I'm sure of, he have my respect from these two aspects, especially his passion and effort that he put into his career. Hope Leessang and Gary continue to produce more good music and continue to touch more lives, bring laughter to more people and show us more of the stories of their lives!




As I'm writing this today, Leessang is having US concert in New York and LA! Wish them a great success for the concert. And finally, their new single Tears, ft Eugene from THE SEEYA is released today!!! Just a too good song, can't stop replaying it and the lyrics totally blown my mind. Hope you guys enjoy it!

[Gary]
After you left, I’m always sad
No matter how sad I am, 
the sadness is not enough
I look for a place to hurt and hide
In front of my dark house, in my stopped car, 
in front of your house
A life without love is like poverty, 
the only thing remaining is an empty room
You and I, we’re like day and night, 
which cannot be together
The only thing we split and shared is longing
You get drunk one night, come to me and 
fuss that you’re gonna sleep with me
You touch my happy trail and say 
that you wanna lay down in my arms
You ask me why I’m always so busy and silently cry
You say didn’t mean it and 
that you always believe me
You and everything of you that always protected me
Has now become longing
[Gil]
Alone between narrow streets in tears
In case someone sees, I secretly shed tears
I try so hard not to become weak
My tears
[Eugene]
Sit alone on the stairs in front of my house in tears
In case you find out, I secretly shed tears
I try so hard not to become weak
My tears
[Gary]
We have bad attachments rather than good attachments^
We fight all the time and go for days without seeing each other
But we wanted each other so much
Because we loved each other, 
because we couldn’t live without each other
The freckles on your body, the food you can’t eat
When we kiss and made up after fighting
When we tightly held hands while driving
I remember all of those things
Even if you’re not next to me for a moment, I get nervous
After letting you go, I easily get blank
I hate the changing world
I forcefully take out your memories
Your name, face, laughter, scent
There are so many memories you gave to me
There is so much soul that you left to me
They come to life and find to me
I crush them all with the word, love
[Gil]
Alone between narrow streets in tears
In case someone sees, I secretly shed tears
I try so hard not to become weak
My tears
[Eugene]
Sit alone on the stairs in front of my house in tears
In case you find out, I secretly shed tears
I try so hard not to become weak
My tears
[Eugene]
My tears, tears, tears
Once again tears, tears, tears
Again silently – I don’t wanna know
It smears my memories
[Gil]
Alone between narrow streets in tears
In case someone sees, I secretly shed tears
I try so hard not to become weak
My tears
[Eugene]
Sit alone on the stairs in front of my house in tears
In case you find out, I secretly shed tears
I try so hard not to become weak
My tears
