1. [+1924, -10] The fact that he was born in 1985 ㄷㄷ

2. [+1273, -13] He's younger than Sandara Park ㄷㄷ He looks old but his years of experience that comes out from his way of speaking ㄷㄷ

4. [+369, -9ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ The fact that he's younger than Min Kyung Hoon

5. [+335, -36] He has a good face for when he ages more although he currently looks older 

Nationwide ratings for episode 83 that aired on August 25: 5.6% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+369, -33] ㅋㅋ Today's episode was really funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋ The perilla leaf incident ㅋㅋ Seung Gi oppa is so good at being the spokesperson for master No Sa Yeon-nim's perspective ㅋㅋ (t/n: They went to a Korean BBQ restaurant and Lee Moo Song revealed that he and No Sa Yeon once had a huge argument because of perilla leaves. They went to a restaurant with a female coworker and they were served pickled perilla leaf at the restaurant and from personal experience, perilla leaves are really thin and they're really hard to pick up with chopsticks when they're pickled and Lee Moo Song said he noticed the coworker having difficulty picking up the perilla leaf so he pressed down on it so she can pick it up with her chopsticks and No Sa Yeon got mad at him over that. I remember them talking about this on another show and people were saying that from a woman's perspective, it can be hurtful because your husband is taking care of another woman LOL IDK I thought it was funny)

2. [+246, -21] That freakin perilla leaf ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+167, -36] I totally relate with her! When I went on my honeymoon with my husband, my husband held down the perilla leaf for a wife of another newlywed couple so we had a huge fight when we returned to the hotel and almost divorced.. ㅋ

4. [+145, -17] When you talk about No Sa Yeon, she was legendary when she was active with her perfect comedy collab with Joo Byung Jin on 'Sunday Night' ㅋㅋ

5. [+111, -32] Today's episode was also hella fun, I kept on laughing 

Original Source (Sports Chosun via Naver): "Is that living like a celebrity?"...Kim Hee Chul and even his mother has a controversy, Universe Star's easygoing daily life

Nationwide ratings for episode 153 that aired on August 25: 18.1% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+4969, -156] Sigh... To the parents of sons who want their sons to quickly get married because they skip breakfast~ You don't get married so that your son can get taken care of. They need to become a person who can take care of themselves and people who have the capability of taking care of others get married to take care of each other.. Please stop using these reasons to say that your sons need to quickly get married. You really seem like a clueless adult.... 
↪ [+119, -478] He's a famous celebrity and he has a lot of money, if the girl isn't even going to make breakfast for him then doesn't that mean she's freeloading off of him? With marriage, I think that, at times, you fill things that you each lack and you're considerate of one another but you seem like an old loser who didn't get married, an old maid ㅋㅋ
↳↳ [+527, -18] A woman can have a lot of money and she can have her own career.. What are you talking about, asking an office worker who's busy going off to work in the mornings to make breakfast, sigh.. Does a woman have to give up her career or make breakfast while going to work if Kim Hee Chul is rich? 
↳↳ [+521, -14] @ishe (t/n: the first reply commenter) must not be married. If you need someone to receive money and make food then it's right to hire a housekeeper. Also, the person who should make breakfast for your son and take care of him is you, mother. Don't think about making another family's precious daughter into housekeeper and instead, either go visit your son's apartment or live with him again to take care of his meals.

2. [+2195, -57] If he gets married, will your son who doesn't eat breakfast begin to eat breakfast? Who's going to make that breakfast?

3. [+1828, -25] I'm hella jealous that he gets to make money off of fooling around like that because it's considered filming

4. [+684, -12] What does it mean to live like a celebrity?

5. [+533, -14] He skips meals → I wish he'll get married. Why is it that our nation's mothers come to that conclusion even if our generation changes this much? ㅡ.ㅡ

Original Source (Herald POP via Naver): 'Running Man' Park Jung Min x Choi Yoo Hwa x Lim Ji Yeon makes their appearance...Lee Kwangsoo carries out whipped cream punishment

Nationwide ratings for episode 465 that aired on August 25: 6.4% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+140, -6] The character game was so funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+61, -6] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Seriously, today's episode was so funny ㅋㅋㅋ daebak

3. [+56, -2] Sticky rice shortie ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ (t/n: I didn't watch the episode so I'm going to write the literal translation LOL)

4. [+43, -5] Actor Park Jung Min-nim, succeed more! 

5. [+23, -0] Ah today's episode was hella funny ㅋㅋㅋ They never met Jae Suk but they made a guest appearance on 'Running Man'???       

This is my one thousandth post on the blog!!!
Wow.... I can't believe we reached 1000 ㅠㅠ
I thought it would be good to make the one thousandth post a weekend variety roundup post since I haven't posted a variety roundup in a while ㅠㅠ

Many of y'all have been asking for Running Man posts - I usually translate things that are trending on the front page of Naver. For example, articles for 'I Live Alone' trend on the front page ranking for hours after the episode airs on Friday and tbh, Running Man hasn't been trending on the front page for a while and when I do go hunt for Running Man-related articles, the comments usually have less than 100 upvotes.... For example, for this post, the first and second comment on the Running Man article is made by the same user. 
It's kinda hard to keep track of when there's not a lot of activity ㅠㅠ
If y'all want to send me articles of Running Man episodes then I'll go ahead and translate it but in my experience, it's been hard finding popular, trending RM articles and if I do find articles, there's always a lack of comments and upvotes.

Just wanted to clear it up for y'all since a lot of people have been asking lately.
