3. [+317 / -0] No but I seriously didn't expect the sentencing to be 1050 years ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ As the episodes passed, I got used to Kwang Soo's cheating/fouls so I didn't know that there would be this much ㅋㅋㅋ

1. [+617 / -4] The members must've been really sad but I feel like the staff must've been that sad too.. ㅠ it's already sad ㅠㅠㅠㅠ

2. [+581 / -3] I thought he was crying because he was really sad but it's because a bug went into his eye 𐌅𐨛ヲ𐌅𐨛ヲ𐌅𐨛ヲ𐌅 Even the PD is funny on the show and it was so funny when Kwang Soo asked why he's crying in only one eye 𐌅𐨛ヲ𐌅𐨛ヲ𐌅𐨛ㅠㅠㅠ

3. [+359 / -1] Lee Kwang Soo's laughter looks the saddest.... Lee Kwang Soo who demonstrates well that "my laughing isn't really laughing".. I'm trying hard to end it on a bright note but dammit, I'm tearing up ㅠㅠㅠ (t/n: the "my laughing isn't really laughing" is also lyrics to Leessang's song I'm Not Laughing)

4. [+327 / -2] The Running Man members are all so warm,, I won't be able to forget the Yoo-Lee Brothers 🤦‍♀️😭

5. [+274 / -1] Seriously ㅠㅠ Even I'm sad but imagine how sad the staff and members who worked on the show with him are... Kwang Soo-nim, you really worked so hard 😃Please make sure to take care of your health and if your health is good, please make an appearance once!! Goodbye Betrayal Giraffe, Prince of Asia 😭

Original Source (SBS via Naver TV): The members unite to tease Ji Suk Jin, who fell asleep!

1. [+455 / -1] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Hella funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Even Bo Pil PD's add-on went well with the joke ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+360 / -0] In the middle of all this, Bo Pil PD ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㄱ "Ji Suk Jin, you will be leaving the show" ㅋㅋㄱㅋㅋ

3. [+262 / -6] Jokester God Yoo ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I love his jokes

4. [+244 / -2] Running Man's official jokester God Yoo ㅋㅋㅋ "Kwang Soo, congrats" ㅋㅋㅋ Suk Jin quitting ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+224 / -0] Ah seriously ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Everybody's acting ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Why are they good at it ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 

1. [+625 / -7] @ 00:33 - God Yoo said, "Do we have to split up everything Kwang Soo did.." I was sad because you could feel his sadness from here... ㅠㅠㅠ Kwang Soo, you really worked hard

2. [+487 / -7] It's seriously so sad... Kwang Soo, who was a member of Running Man from the beginning, was always funny...

3. [+451 / -3] Se Chan hyung's tears are legit, he looks so sad 😭

4. [+441 / -4] Even if Yang Se Chan and Jeon So Min weren't members for 11 years, the fact that they're really sad over Lee Kwang Soo leaving the show... it probably means that Lee Kwang Soo took care of them that much and the two youngest members relied on Lee Kwang Soo a lot ㅠㅠㅠ To Yang Se Chan, he was like a friendly but cunning hyung and to Jeon So Min, they're chemistry was just like real siblings.. Ah, I won't be able to forget about this maknae team ㅠㅠㅠ

5. [+338 / -1] I won't think about this as the end, I think that we'll be able to meet again one day. Kwang Soo, I'll pray that your acting career only walks the flower path. Thank you for your hard work after running for 11 years 💜💜💜 

6. [+295 / -4] I hope he comes back after he recovers..... Thank you for every Sunday.. Please be happy!! 

7. [+231 / -1] Please make an appearance as a guest later on, I miss you Kwang Soo-nim 🙏

8. [+214 / -0] Kwang Soo hyung, please live well in a penalty-free world 😂😂😂 

1. [+1054 / -5] Is it something to sob over while watching a variety show? ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ When he didn't play a huge active part during the early days of Running Man, he tried harder than anyone else. When Uncle Suk Jin couldn't get acclimated, he (Kwang Soo) came up with the Lee-Ji Brothers character and helped him (Suk Jin) get acclimated. He gave the members and viewers laughter when Ddook-ie and Kkook-ie would bicker. When Gary left the show and Ji Hyo unni was low-spirited, he helped her a lot. When the youngest members joined the show and struggled with getting acclimated, our Giraffe helped them. We will always welcome you even if you pop out suddenly so please come out whenever. Thank you so much until now :) Thank you for remaining as a big presence in my memories 

2. [+581 / -4] Kwang Soo hyung, don't go ㅠ

3. [+546 / -2] Kwang Soo-nim, you shined every day and in every moment because you are Lee Kwang Soo ⭐👏

4. [+448 / -1] I was happy for 11 years thanks to a person named Lee Kwang Soo. Please don't be sorry. Thank you. I will support the days ahead of you!

5. [+418 / -0] We only saw Kwang Soo always joking around and laughing but seeing him cry like this is so sad. Running Man will always be open so come whenever you like, Kwang Soo 🥺❤️❤️❤️❤️

6. [+406 / -0] It's my first time crying over a variety show

7. [+393 / -3] It was really interesting and moving how God Yoo remembered the name of Kwang Soo's father ㅠㅠ He remembered his name because he's that interested. Kwang Soo, don't cry... Please come out as a guest, you worked hard throughout those times, thank you for your hard work 

1. [+1284 / -9] God Yoo's words at the end of the letter were the saddest - "Because of you, I wasn't bored.." ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ Seriously, God Yoo legitimately cherished Lee Kwang Soo ㅠㅠ I'm sad that we won't be able to see the Yoo-Lee Brothers' chemistry.. Thank you for your hard work during the 11 years

2. [+940 / -11] I'm sadder because it looks like God Yoo was trying to hold back his tears….

3. [+862 / -5] I don't know if it's because Ji Suk Jin, Yoo Jae Suk, and Kim Jong Kook are the older brothers but I'm even sadder because it looked like they were holding their tears, would make funny comments here and there, and tried hard to not make the vibes sad ㅠㅠㅠ Because they are people who spent the most time with Kwang Soo than anyone else, their sadness over them parting ways must've been big as well ㅠㅠㅠ

4. [+646 / -1] Thank you for giving me an immeasurable about of laughter throughout half of my life. Kwang Soo-nim, who must've suffered as much as the laughter he brought us, thank you so much. I'm supporting the days ahead for Lee Kwang Soo, Running Man's legend!

5. [+633 / -5] Song Ji Hyo must've relied on Kwang Soo a lot, you can sense it from the video ㅠㅠ I feel like she's sadder than the leaving of another person 

1. [+2750 / -23] You may be thinking why are they making a big deal out of this when they can meet up separately but it's not like they live in the same neighborhood and it's not easy to make time to meet up

2. [+2031 / -18] When Yang Se Chan faced down and cried, I sobbed with him ㅠㅠ (t/n: me too 😭😭😭😭)

3. [+1598 / -10] Se Chan crying is so sad ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ Today's episode overall was just sad so I cried too. ㅠㅠㅠㅠ

4. [+1251 / -8] Wow but I really cried when they read Haha's letter….

5. [+1171 / -6] Thank you so much for hard work ♥️♥️♥️

6. [+1150 / -11] As a member who hasn't missed an episode since the first episode that aired 11 years ago - Kwang Soo oppa, I'm sad about you leaving the show as much as the members... Oppa, do all the things you want to do. I'll always support you. Thank you for all your work throughout the years, let's see each other again 🖤

7. [+1020 / -8] I keep crying because it's seriously so sad. For 11 years, I watched all episodes without missing one but Kwang Soo hyung really worked hard. Please make a guest appearance when your movie premieres

1. [+2259 / -8] I'm someone who has never missed a single episode of 'Running Man.' Kwang Soo made every episode while sacrificing his body... It's not easy to send him off knowing how sincere he was about the show.. Thank you so much for giving us unforgettable memories and laughter..

2. [+1663 / -5] When Running Man was at risk of getting cancelled, Kwang Soo said "I'm sorry" while winning the Top Excellence Award, we know that he's someone who loved the show and wanted to protect it more than anyone else, so when he delivered his goodbye greeting, I think him saying "I'm sorry. Again, I'm sorry." was a harder farewell to say.. I was able to laugh, cry, and receive comfort from Running Man during my twenties and thirties and because Kwang Soo was there with us the whole time, the final farewell is hard but I'm always support you like a friend who's far away ^^ Kwang Soo, who was a friend to someone, an oppa, hyung, and dongsaeng! Let's now meet as a good actor, I'm supporting you!

3. [+1120 / -4] Kwang Soo oppa, I'm going to really miss you. Even among all those variety shows, Running Man's Kwang Soo oppa was really legendary in every moment. I'll always support you as actor Lee Kwang Soo and not Revenge Giraffe. Thank you for running hard throughout 11 years and please be healthy 😭And I'll continue to support Running Man moving forward. Thanks to the show, I'm able to laugh every Sunday. I hope the members and the staff all stay healthy and please be together for a long, long time 8012💖

4. [+950 / -10] They showed the letters in the captions but it was moving how they showed it as Kwang Soo's actual handwriting….

5. [+881 / -8] Thank you so much for your hard work throughout the 11 years ㅠㅠㅠ I realized this today while watching but I loved Running Man more than I thought I did ㅠㅠㅠㅠ Seriously, please be happy in a penalty-free world 💚🌈
