South Korean variety TV Show, "Running Man", will hold an online fan meeting via TikTok, the world's leading short-form mobile videos, on September 5. The SBS variety show, "Running Man", has gained massive popularity worldwide since its first broadcast in 2010. Since 2013, Running Man members have been visiting their fans overseas with fan meets and various performances.
Running Man's overseas fan meetings and performances have been populsar in many regions like Southeast Asia. Previous fan meetings have been successful such as the Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam event in December 2019 and the Manila fan meeting which had to be rescheduled due to the COVID 19 outbreak.
