running man indonesia mission race

Dear Running Man PDs, hope you are read my post.

Thanks, my dream come true. It has been confirmed that Running Man will be come to my beautiful country, Indonesia!

JS Foundation, along with SH Entertainment will bring this year’s Asian Dream Cup to Indonesia. And as usual, the non-athlete players confirmed to join this match that have run yearly for 3 consecutive times in Vietnam, Thailand, and China are the members of Running Man. All of them!

Yoo Jae Suk, Ji Suk Jin, Kim Jong Kook, Kang Gary, HaHa, Lee Kwang Soo, and Song Ji Hyo participation in the previous Asian Dream Cup events seem to bring high anticipation not only for football fans but also Running Man fans. Year after year, we have waited you to at least visit our fabulous country.

I wish RM visit this country not only just for participate Asian Dream Cup, I hope you make the overseas special episodes like in Thailand, Vietnam, China, Hongkong, and Australia. Seems cool if the running man on a mission in Indonesia and will definitely be the best episode possible. So, please make a race.

So I’ve made it easier for you

The Landmark

Honestly, I don’t like Jakarta very much, is not like other Asian capitals with lot of things to see. It’s crowded, polluted but with not much to offer to tourists.

I think, Bali and Yogyakarta are the most suitable place to do a race. But you have to stay in this city to participate the Asian Dream Cup. So, I just pick some landmark around Jakarta

Taman Mini Indonesia Indah

taman mini indonesia indah

Literally translated “Beautiful Indonesia Miniature Park”. A culture-based recreational area located in East Jakarta.

There is a lake with a miniature of the archipelago in the middle, cable cars, museums, and other recreational facilities. The park is a synopsis of Indonesian culture, so I think this place will be a great landmark to do mission. Nametag ripping maybe. πŸ˜€

Bogor Botanical Garden

Located in Bogor, 60 km south of Jakarta. The gardens are in the city center and adjoin the Istana Bogor (Presidential Palace). The gardens cover more than 80 hectares, also be a great place for a race mission.

Come to Bandung please~

Hope you visit my beloved city, Bandung. Although it is not primarily a tourism destination, Bandung is an interesting place to visit. The traffic is not so nice, especially at the weekends, but you can find very nice people, place and weather in Bandung.

We have great places for races. There are one of the biggest indoor theme park in the world, Trans Studio Bandung. This place will be great for race mission.

Taste our delicious food

Culinary mission? It will be great! Just check Barefoot Friends.

Β Play Indonesian traditional game

We have various traditional game. Here by I mention some of them that will be fun to play.

Suwit and Hom pim pah

Suwit. This game is popular throughout Asia, just as it is throughout the world in all its variations. Suwit is Indonesia’s rock-papper-scrissor.

And we use hom pim pa if we want to choose the role in the games or the way to share our job in games.

Galah asin / Gobak Sodor

This game was a game of the group that consisted of two groups, where respectively the team consisted of 3-5 people. The core of this game was blocked the opponent in order to be able to not slip away beyond the line.

Panjat Pinang (Pole Climb)

Dating back to the Dutch colonial days, Panjat Pinang is one of the oldest, most popular traditions in Indonesia. Panjat Pinang is a very unique way of celebrating Independence Day.

Balap karung (Gunny Sack Race)

Another awesome game that will be fun to play by RM.

  1. Balap karung bisa buat indoor kalau format games seperti ADC tahun lalu.
    If korean have dakji(takji) *i dont know how to spell it* Indonesian have kelereng (marble) i think this game will interesting to play in different way or same way with irene’s episode.

  2. I hope the PD-nim makes them play balap karung and panjat pinang, it must be super fun to see Sparta Kook fight with others. Kekkekekkeke… For landmark i prefer TMII, and Taman Safari. I wish the fans keep their enthusiast properly and not act rude to Running Man team. Big hope the Running Man team enjoy Indonesia, they should know we love them a lot ^^

        • Episode 199 minggu depan spesial Park Ji Sung. Tentang latihan mereka buat nyiapin ADC. Berarti mungkin pas di episode 200 kayaknya. πŸ˜€

          • Waaaaahhhh ga sabar, bisa dibilang kita boleh happy lah ya lantaran jd negara terakhir yg jd lokasi syuting diluar Korea. Tpi, ini g berarti mereka mendekati masa-masa mau pensiun kan ?
