SBS and Disney Plus are joining hands. Disney Plus will service the popular show Running Man’s spin-off. However, Yoo Jae Suk, the face of Running Man, will not be joining the show.

According to Ten Asia, Running Man’s new spin-off will be streamed on Disney Plus under the title Running Man: The One Having Fun is Above the One Running (literal title). The show will reportedly feature some but not all of the current Running Man cast. And main emcee Yoo Jae Suk won’t participate in the spin-off.

Industry experts believe that Disney Plus is hoping to secure its place in the competitive market within Korea by utilizing the same tactics used by already existing platforms. Their goal is to target Asian audiences with original content derived from Running Man.

From Marvel content to animations and live-action movies, will Disney Plus be able to settle into the Korean OTT market?
