The Running Man members revealed how they reacted to Gary‘s unexpected marriage announcement.
Recently, cast members Song Ji Hyo, Kim Jong Kook, HaHa, Lee Kwang Soo and Ji Suk Jin visited Malaysia for a fan meeting. After they entertained fans with performances and gags, the members were eventually asked about Gary’s recent marriage.
On April 5, Gary surprised fans with an announcement about his marriage through Instagram. The sudden news came as a huge surprise as very few people even knew he was in a relationship.
Song Ji Hyo, who was always extremely close with Gary on the show, was asked about her thoughts on Gary’s surprise news.
“I’m a bit sad as I only found out about it from the news. I wish Gary-oppa a happy marriage. He also changed his contact number so I hope he’ll contact us.”

Ji Suk Jin explained that Gary changed his number two months ago and added that they all understand his choice, while HaHa said that he tried to contact Gary after hearing the news.
“I actually congratulated him but there was no reply. Gary-hyung is unique, he will find a way to contact us.”
The members closed this topic by chanting “We Love Gary” and “7012″, a code signifying the show’s 7 original members while 012 is a play on the Korean word “forever.”
