Indonesian fans of Running Man were left disappointed this week when the cast’s flight was delayed, resulting in the cancellation of a soccer practise for the press.
The South Korean variety show were supposed to warm up ahead of the Asian Dream Cup charity soccer contest in Jakarta, but arrived late and could only attend a quick press conference, before moving on to a charity meal.
Ji Suk Jin, Yoo Jae Suk, Lee Kwang Soo, Kim Jong Gook, Gary, Ha Ha and Song Ji Hyo, joined soccer star Park Ji Sung and others in the game that afternoon. They lost 3-2 to Indonesia All Stars.
The annual game is held by the JS Foundation, which was setup by retired player Park Ji Sung. Money raised by the event that took place at the Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium, is to be donated to support football programs in the South East Region.
The game started off with a surprising lead by Ji Sung & Friends when they scored a free kick during the 9th minute, but All Stars soon fired back with a goal by Lestaluhu Ramdani.
At the 40th minute the Running Man side once again got ahead, with a goal by Ismed Sofyan, but in the end Indonesian All Stars managed to pull back two more goals for the victory.
Thousands of fans enjoyed the action, cheering on the stars from SBS’s Good Sunday show, who more than made up for the late arrival.
